I was actually hanging on to this write up in a txt file for a week or two on my HDD. Glad I posted it now before all of you wrote your own so time isn't wasted
I plan on flashing a recovery through fastboot to make sure everything is named correctly to progress on it. But I have a busy weekend this weekend, so it'll probably be a few days
You should throw a note in there for the windows 7 users for them to just hold shift and right click on there platform tools folder and select "open command window here" this will save them a lot of time changing envinromental variables and mostly them getting path errors. Oh and by the way I know you said you didn't wanna lose your hboot 1.4( I.don't blame you). If you ever did decide or needed to update your hboot you won't lose s-off when you upgrade but you will have to do HTC unlock method. After that you can flash to any partition like you can on 1.4 and/or roll back your hboot if you wanted to. My new phone has 1.5 : ( everything you got on there so far looks good.
