Between that and revone's incompatibility with 1.54 (from reports on XDA you can relock while running 1.54 but not unlock again!) I decided that 1.54 was taking away too many of my options. Plus, what's the advantage of a newer hboot anyway? So I've downgraded my hboot back to 1.44, and just confirmed that fastboot boot recovery.img works again.

Note for anyone reading this who thinks that means there's a work-around: you have to be S-Off already in order to downgrade hboot.
i recently flashed maximus,wich is based on leaked 4.3 build 3.09.401.1,and its matching firmware. this gave me an opportunity to play around with hboot 1.55. i observed the same thing you did: i could not fastboot boot,nor fastboot flash a new recovery. i had to pack it up and flash it as an ruu.

in addition,i was unable to change my CID. was trying to flash a vzw cid(dont ask ) and couldnt. nor could i flash back to my stock cid from supercid:
Code:
c:\miniadb_m7>fastboot oem writecid VZW__001
...
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
(bootloader) Input CID is not super CID
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
OKAY [  0.053s]
finished. total time: 0.060s

c:\miniadb_m7>fastboot oem writecid T-MOB010
...
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
(bootloader) Input CID is not super CID
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
OKAY [  0.052s]
finished. total time: 0.058s
saaaaaay whaaaaaa so now im back on hboot 1.44 as well. the other things were an inconvenience,but i cannot be stuck on supercid! wonder what they are doing with these new restrictions??

Code:
c:\miniadb_m7>fastboot oem writecid VZW__001
...
(bootloader) Start Verify: 0
OKAY [  0.018s]
finished. total time: 0.021s
