Default [Q] Info on recovery screen of Evo 3D

I just got a Evo 3D, and I don't know some information on it's recovery:

Code:
*** LOCKED ***
SHOOTER_U PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-1.49.0018
eMMC-boot
Oct  3 2001, 15:03:01

HBOOT

...

FASTBOOT
RECOVERY
FACTORY RESET
SIMLOCK
IMAGE CRC
could you please help tell me what "LOCKED" means? How about RECOVERY/SIMLOCK?
Thanks!

Not sure what pvt means but you should be able to use revolutionary method to get s-off.

Locked means the bootloader is locked, need to use htc method to unlock it.

The Fastboot, Recovery, etc. are options fastboot puts the phone in fastboot, recovery boots the phone into recovery, not sure about simlock i have sprint so no sim card.

If you do revolutionary method do it FIRST before using htc method to unlock your bootloader otherwise you won't have s-off.

Here are 2 links to find out more about both methods:

Thanks. But this raised my other noob questions: what's the difference between Revolutionary and HTCmethod? Aren't they both unlock the bootloader which will then allow me to install custom ROM?

(This is my 2nd android phone. The 1st one is Huawei U8800, and installing custom ROMs on that one was simple: replace recovery file with CWM ones, and use CWM to install custom ROMs. Is it more complicated with HTC phones?)

Htc Method allows you to flash roms only not kernels through recovery and you don't get s-off which gives you complete control over the device.

Revolutionary gives you s-off so you can flash custom kernels through recovery.

So that means I should use Revolutionary only, not HTCmethod, or Revolutionary first then HTCmethod?

One or the other not both. Try rev first and you should be good to go .

I just read the Revolutionary thread, and they mentored in the first post: " You must be s-offed, or your bootloader has to be unlocked." This is confusing.
