    **Read before you download moonshine**

    * Your warranty is now void.
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about root access
    * running moonshine! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.


    32-bit Linux (Ubuntu is preferred)
    Live CDs are fine.
    Live USB is fine.
    Native install is fine.
    VMs are unsupported.
    64-bit Linux may work with 32 bit libraries, but is also unsupported.
    Or Windows

    HTC drivers installed and working fastboot AND adb drivers
    HTC sync removed (not closed REMOVED)
    All other phone software removed or disabled (Samsung Kies, PDANet, etc.)
    VMs are unsupported.
    Do NOT clutter our support channels with support requests on an unsupported OS configuration.

    A working internet connection
    USB debugging enabled on your device
    Fast boot disabled on your device (settings -> battery -> UNcheck fast boot
    Correct firmware must be installed on your device.
    Your device must be HTCDEV unlocked unless using Moonshine with the HTC Droid DNA.
    If you are currently running another firmware, you will need to upgrade to a supported firmware PRIOR to using moonshine s-off.
    Use the matching Stock RUU, some stock based ROMs may work, but we cannot test them all.
    Once you confirm you meet the above pre-requisites, its time to get started.

    Read all of the directions before proceeding to downloading.

    Ensure device is booted to android with usb debugging enabled.

    USB 2.0 ports are preferred.

    USB 3.0 ports are known to cause connectivity problems

    You should not be connected using any hubs which may cause connectivity issues

    Use the original HTC usb cable or a cable that you know to work with adb and fastboot on this device

    Ensure that lock screen security is disabled on your device.
    no passcode lock
    no pattern lock
    no face lock


    1) Download moonshine for your device.
    Linux users this must be to your ~/Downloads direrctory.
    Linux users do NOT try to download or run it from your Windows/Mac drive or a USB drive that is not formatted for native Linux use. It wont work!

    2) Extract the archive
    tar -zxf moonshine_<device>_<version>.tgz (Linux)
    Unzip the file moonshine_<device>_<version>.zip (Windows)

    3) Execute distiller
    -linux: sudo ./distiller
    -windows: double-click distiller.exe (Run as Administrator)

    4) Agree to the terms and conditions you are prompted with in distiller

    5) Allow the exploit to do its work.
    Your device will reboot several times throughout the process.
    Allow the tool to do its work, dont touch anything.

    6) Profit.

    This is the link to moonshine. Download which version you need according to your phone and service provider
