If you have to ask why it is important, then it isn't important to you.

You already have it I think if you took the hboot when you did S-OFF and you were not on the leak firmware.

OK so I read up on this....from what I gathered this what I did. I'm on the GB firmware with Cleanrom ICS latest version in which I flashed the old firmware patch. So I downloaded the bear for GB (windows) and went through the process. I also accepted their hboot. It appears everything went well. My understanding is that I do not need to flash this ENG Boot...correct? Reason I'm asking is when I reboot it says I need a sim card installed.....but after it goes away my phone runs fine. I have 4G and can make calls. Weird......any suggestions. Thanks con for putting out this thread. I'll reboot and keep checking...I couldn't find this issue anywhere else, although there are now way too many s-off threads. Thanks in advance.

I think their gb hboot is the eng hboot. The reason it is needed is because the GB hboot blocks fastboot stuff until you unlock again which is not what we want.

So I'm good....thanks for your fast response. As for the sim card warning sign.....it goes away quickly once my phone grabs connection. Since I'm home and my connection defaults and connects to wifi immediately, plus I use juice defender, it takes a few seconds to grab 4g, which in turn defaults back to wifi only. Not sure if this causes it as it never did that before. Regardless the phone works great. Thanks again bro for your help.
