So im on step 10

In the command prompt, i get:

Code:
C:\Android>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
sending 'recovery' (4124 KB)...
OKAY [  1.229s]
writing 'recovery'...
(bootloader) signature checking...
FAILED (remote: signature verify fail)
finished. total time: 1.844s
I'm using the RA recovery. 3.11.

Can someone tell me what im doing wrong, please?

Heh. Nope. Hmm...did all the HTC Dev stuff...anyway. Thanks BRB.

Edit: Son of a Woman. You had to HOLD the up button when telling it you wanted to unlock it. Grrr. Thanks again.

Edit: scratch that, got it working! Please delete it, I messed up and tried installing a different kernel and that's why.
