I am trying to root my HTC One S following the instructions on HTCDev

I generated an Unlock_code and everything works well until Step 13. In Step 12, I typed

fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin 

in cmd which returned the expected result of:

...\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
sending 'unlocktoken' (0 KB)...
OKAY [  0.148s]
writing 'unlocktoken'...
(bootloader) unlock token check successfully
OKAY [  0.016s]
finished. total time: 0.171s

According to HTCDev, I sould now see a disclaimer, but my smartphone remains in the Fastboot USB menue.

My smartphone should be connected to my pc since I can see it in cmd

\platform-tools>fastboot devices
SH23XW403779    fastboot

Any ideas? Thanks

Could you edit the link in your question so that it points to the exact page with the instructions you're following, please? The front page of HTCDev doesn't tell us anything. – Dan Hulme Jul 16 '13 at 20:15
I did, but you need to be registered in order to see it. Unfortunately, I can not upload a screenshot since I do not own enough reputation yet – Martin Sheen Jul 16 '13 at 20:20
You can mention a link to the screenshot, so one of your "higher rep brothers" can integrate it for you. – Izzy Jul 16 '13 at 22:03

After relocking and unlocking again, it worked for me.

The disclaimer appears on the splash screen after rebooting. You will not get any notification during the unlock process. Here's a picture of what you should see.
