In this order. NOTE: IF YOU ARE ON ICS FIRMWARE (OTA UPDATE) SKIP STEP 1
#1-Flash firmware (Must be Locked)- rename RUU to PH98IMG and place on sd card. Boot into hboot and run update. There will be a long list of items. The first time it runs it will only update a few of them and then reboot. Wait a few minutes and it should boot back to hboot and update rest of items. If after several minutes it does not go back to hboot pull battery and replace and boot to hboot to restart manually. Once all items are updated it will ask you to reboot and boot to stock rom. You are now on stock ICS firmware and rom.
Factory reset in hboot while still stock to ensure data and storage will work properly.

#5- Achieve s-off and accept JB-hboot-extract Control bear zip to desktop. Connect usb cable to phone while booted to rom. Double click main Control Bear icon to start procedure and follow screen prompts on PC. Start wire trick when prompted. If it takes and says still sober just exit and restart Control Bear. When s-off is obtained it will ask you if you want custom hboot. Say yes and it will flash and you will be done with a working rom and fully up to date firmware and radios. Correct s-off software below.

There are different wires that can be used. I used a bread tie on one. lol Some use large paperclip. Whatever you use make sure it is insulated or wrap with tape. Best is 22 gauge wire about 6" long blunt cut on one end. This end will fit tight in pinhole and allow you to concentrate on trick without holding both ends. Force to bottom of hole so that it contacts pin.
