Big news for owners of the brand new HTC Incredible S, Desire, Wildfire and Aria this morning as the long-awaited AlphaRev X hits public beta. AlphaRev X will allow you to software unlock (s-off) your phone which opens the door to root access, custom recovery and custom roms. As this is still in beta stage caution is advised, but if you’re into the mod scene then this is the news you’ve been waiting for! Lets us know whether you’ll be attempting this and your results in the comments

My Desire is already S-OFFed with the original AlphaRev. Not sure there is any benefit with this version?

Nice one. Are you tempted to try a custom rom or are you happy enough on stock without the bloatware? This one looks pretty sweet: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1088498

i bought from optus straight away and it came with optus applications etc. I have flashed it to the virgin rom. when i tried to use alpharevx they stuck on an acquiring root (method 2..). must i flash to optus rom first before i use alpharevx?
thanks Brad

Hmm the virgin rom should work too. It looks like gingerbreak is having a hissy. have you done temproot before? also have you got htc sync installed?
