Default HTC Desire Z cannot get S-ON back

So details first:

Android Version: 2.2
Baseband version: 12.28b.60.140eU_26.03.02.26_M
Kernel version: htc-kernel@and18-2 #1
Build number: 1.34.405.5 CL273326 release keys
Software number: 1.34.405.5

At Startup:

HBOOT 0.85.0005

HTC Desire Z. Had this phone rooted to load custom ROMs, now want to send it in for warranty purposes.
The phone appears not to be rooted anymore, but I still got S-OFF, cannot get it to S-ON.
Tried to update with RUU (3 WWE versions), tried it with placing PC10IMG.ZIP on SD card and do the update. Alls good, just that god damn S-OFF is still there.

Found a guide on unl..er, but cannot get the first command to work as obviously Im not rooted anymore.

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 of=/sdcard/misc.img

What would you suggest to do to get S-ON?

I was even thinking to root again and then just try that guide again.
And also can you apply factory stock boot loader from T-Mobile G2 onto HTC Desire Z ?

I don't think you can touch hboot without root. There are instructions here on reverting to S-ON using .gfree via a temp root.

Good luck!
