Are you fully rooted with s-off?

What steps did you take to install it?

What errors showed, if any?

Rather than that version of Unity, see here for the most up to date one.

You can't get s-off yet with that method, we still need to figure it out.
To flash a kernel, pull the boot.img from the zip you want to flash, and use fastboot mode and 'fastboot flash boot boot.img' to flash the kernel.

hey nipqer,
hey guys,

I'm a noob and whatI wanted to do is having root,
i've succeeded with the htc official boot unlocker (didn't knew it was that crappy)
and using supertool (with zergrush exploit method)

now that i'm less of a noob , I 've found out that I don't have s-off
so you are 100% positive when you're saying it's not possible to have it?

is it the reason why when I want to save my current rom in rom manager it shows me a red !
and tells me: e:can't open /cache/recovery/command?

I want to install a new kernel for overclocking, do you confirm that what you are saying is the only method for my situation?
"to flash a kernel, pull the boot.img from the zip you want to flash, and use fastboot mode and 'fastboot flash boot boot.img' to flash the kernel."

thanks a lot.

The red triangle with ! is the stock recovery.
The htcdev method keeps recovery and boot locked, unless you flash it via fastboot.
So pulling a boot.img and 'fastboot flash boot boot.img' is the only way
(though I have heard of someone working on a recovery to defeat protection, no idea how its coming along though)

thanks a lot for your answer, so that's why I can't save with rom manager right?

another question before I flash my boot.img, because i want to be sure and I didn't found a clear answer yet..

can I get a boot.img extracted from any rom for Desire z ,i'm thinking about a virtuous unity for exemple...
will that work or do I have to get a special kernel?
do I risk a brick flashing that way?

thanks

Yeah that's why rom manager won't flash a recovery.

I really advise you to use the kernel that came with the rom.
Though most aosp kernels will work with other aosp roms, and same with sense (doubt sense 2 will work with sense 3.x and such like)

Also, you may have to replace certain files in the rom for everything to work (wifi, camera, etc)

There is no brick risk

ok thanks

so you advice that I dont flash the kernel at all?
what I understand is that it's way too different from the original Rom, right?

I've got a couple more questions for you if you don't mind

what if it's from a ROM that's close to sense, like the VIRTUOUS SENSE ?
and is it possible to save my kernel as a backup or not ?

it's really a pain in the ass as I only want to overclock my DZ a bit...

And I really hope someone finds a solution for that S-ON problem with the official HTC unlocker...

thanks a lot again!
