    Will running the stock RUU UNROOT my phone? If so, I don't remember the token or the method I used to root it in the first place. Can you please clarify what token to re-root you are referring to and how. I am really looking to S-OFF to but a little concerned being a noob at this stuff. Thanks guys

    When you unlock the bootloader through HTCdev they send you a file called Unlock_code.bin

    You flash that to the pone through fastboot with the command (i think) fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin

    If you still have your unlock token you can just use it again to unlock without having to use fastboot oem get_identifier_token and sending that code to HTCdev again.

    When you s-off it will return your bootloader to LOCKED

    Scotty just made a flashable file that you flash through recovery that will lock or unlock the bootloader with a quick flash. S-off required, but that is much simpler if you s-off and want to unlock again.

    I think I found it under HTC. It says this:
    Recovery.img
    Unlock_code.bin
    So I flash that to my phone with fastboot with those commands? I might be over my head with the S-off thing but I think I am going to try.

    You are probably already unlocked since you are rooted. You just need to be on the stock rom and unlocked to do the wire trick!

    You can run the RUU yes, the one I posted would work for you. But then after running you have to re-root the phone.

    Unlock
    Flash Recovery
    Flash SuperSU

    They suggest running the RUU but I don't see why you can't just flash the stock rom. It's a lot easier.

    Find the stock rom here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1420206&highlight=stock

    I would download the one named: Shooter_S_Sprint_WWE_2.17.651.5_odex.zip since you are on hboot 1.5 so that you won't hit any bootloops.

    Just do a full wipe and flash in recovery like you would with any rom.

    Thanks you, I wish there was a way for us to pay you guys back for all your time and advice. I am going to give S-OFF a try...Cross your fingers.
    *EDIT*wouldn't flash it just kept rebooting. Might have to RUU or just stay S-ON undecided and frustrated. The only thing that is stopping me right now is getting back to stock ROM.
