I have been encouraged to install 4ext, but being a noob, I don't know how to remove cwm and install 4ext. Is it a matter of downloading the new recovery program and installing and letting it overwrite or do I have to remove cwm first?

Thanks!

Also, I used the HTC dev method to unlock so I am still s-on. Is that an issue with this project?

It's not an issue just download the app and when it runs it will ask if you're s-on then flash the 4ext overwriting cwm. Then your all set. It can flash kernels making fast boot or flash gui obsolete
