Took a few minutes to flash. Rebooted and everything was working. The hboot I have is already higher (the one they included with juoponutbear) then the is update. But you need to get the new firmware from the ruu fo be flashed still.

Follow the guide previously posted and you should be fine tho. I just used a slightly different method to do.it myself

I'm not sure if i know enough about S-OFF but want to try Dark Raider Rom now. What is the big advantage with doing S-OFF first? From what i understand i could also flash Dark Raider without S-OFF but then i have to flash the kernel separately?

The main advantage is being able to flash Roms and the boot in recovery or the Rom supports it.

My kernel now supports both s-off and non s-off phones

I'm confused about boot.img and kernel... Is it not the same?

I thought if somebody tells you to flash boot.img that means flashing a kernel?

And what you mean supports both? I think it's just the question how we get the kernel (S-OFF from recovery, S-ON with fastboot)....

A boot.IMG is comprised of the kernel as well as the ramdisk.

By supporting both I mean that to flash from recovery they need to have the appropriate code in their update script otherwise only the Rom will be installed. Most developers have had this code in their rims from day one. It just didn't installed the boot.IMG because there was no s-off.
