Default Unlock Bootlader version update?

So I'm trying to root my Wildfire S and signed up to HTCDev.

When I try to update the ROM, it says I am updating from:

Image Version 2.26.401.3

to

Image Version 2.17.0.0

Is this right? It feels like it's taking a step backwards instead of updating

Thanks in advance.

Check out this thread. It's pretty well explained:

3B. Updating your Bootloader Read the "Bootloader instructions" page carefully. Then choose the correct RUU for your phone’s carrier and model number (ie, PG76xxx00). The model number for your phone is found under the battery minus the final two 0s. If you’ve successfully upgraded to the European 2.3.5 RUU in step 1 above, the corresponding bootloader update (HTC EU) should work for your phone. It’s the one I used for my Asia A510e/PG76100. Re-read the instructions and then follow them.
Once the bootloader is successfully updated, when you boot your phone into HBOOT (turn it off, pull and reinsert the battery, hold volume down and press power button) you’ll see ***_LOCKED_(OOW)_*** ("Out Of Warranty"?) at the top of the screen and and H-BOOT-1.08.0099 or H-BOOT-1.10.0000 below. Move on to 3C below. But, if you run into problems...
It's more the HBOOT version. If your HBOOT is already one of the 2 mentioned above, you can totally skip the ruu update.
