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.
I tried this with my build of Win7 (Home Professional or whatever it's called...the mid-grade version) and it didn't work, so I figured I'd show how to type it out (or allow people to copy/paste). But thanks for the tip! I'll put it in there the next time I revise.

And there's nothing on HBOOT 1.5 that I would want. I'm sure the discrepancies I've been seeing between 1.4 and 1.5 is because 1.5 requires that you flash a recovery through fastboot, and it's being named differently than the HBOOT PG86IMG.zip recovery name. So I'm going to flash the recovery through fastboot and continue on with the guide sometime this weekend or next week.

I was going to sticky it when it was a little more complete. I also wanted to talk to you and a few of the other guides and mods about consolidating and/or revising the sticky list, so it's not like 8 or so stickies
