Have you followed this guide ? I did last night as soon as i got my phone, After unlocking the bootloader its relatively simple.

You just have to flash the .zip file

Its easy Unlocking bootloader isa little tricky, But if you follow the instructions and dont skip anything you will be fine...

When you see the diagrams on HTCDev. It looks way more complex than it actually is

Make sure under settings > power, That you have fastboot UNchecked.

Then power off and leave it for about 10 seconds, Then try.. I had this issue last night

As it's Vodafone, do you have a network unlocked device?

If not then you can't use HTCDev.com and must wait for the general s-off tool.
Alternatively you can try to network unlock your device, through Vodafone or third party.
Phone: Samsung Galaxy Nexus
Rom: Codename Lungo
Recovery: TWRP

Mines also Vodafone branded. worked for me. HTCDev doesnt give S-OFF it just unlocks bootloader to allow files to be written.

The NAND is still write protected until such tool can combat this. Fastboot is definitely unchecked right ? sometimes on my phone it comes back on without
me re-enabling it

EDIT: I have to hold the Volume down + power for about 10-15 seconds for bootloader to come up
