You will be able to follow this guide after you successfully follow the htc unlock instructions. However it is recommended that you follow these instructions instead, to gain full root.
[How To] Root 2.3.4/downgrade and Get S-off

With only an htc unlocked bootloader, you will not be able to install alternate radios or downgrade to previous firmware versions. Having those options makes it much easier to recover a soft bricked phone.
