    the issue is with htc....they have locked down their bootloaders. you can unlock it, however, but you will need a pc to do that.

    If its anything like my Evo 4g was, unlocking the bootloader is simple. But without a pc, you cant do it.
    Can you borrow one or something?
    I think what you might be thinking about is a PC36IMG (for the Evo4g, not sure what it is called for the Design) or an ruu. But that will install a stock rom/recovery etc.
    In order to flash a custom rom, you need to unlock the bootloader and install a custom recovery. You need a computer for unlocking at least.

    I may be totally wrong, but from briefly reading thru that guide, it is true. :)

    there is no unlock file. you will have to go to the HTCdev site. just follow the guide that mikey linked you to.

    Did you get an email from the HTCDEV site with the UnlockCode_bin file?

    Where did you get the "unknown error" message? In the command window?

    Let me ask you this, in addition to the UnlockCode_bin file, what else is in that folder on your computer?
    Are there files such as these in there?
    adb.exe
    fastboot.exe
    AdbWinApi.dll

    no, debugging box should be checked.
    Let me just double check some things here.:) (based on how I did my Evo4G)
    1. phone is in fastboot and the words "fastbootusb" are displayed? (phone plugged in) while entering the commands.
    2. HTC Sync is installed? (just needed for the drivers...actually, you can uninstall htcsync but leave the drivers)
    3. Nothing else is trying to communicate with the phone such as another sync program?
    4. This is the command you are issuing in the command prompt:
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
    and is spelled correctly?
    5. Java (run time environment) up to date and installed?
