so i found this guide about getting a custom recovery and S-OFF which looks safe to me
xttp://appcounter.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/installing-custom-rom-for-htc-evo-3d.html

All i want now is simply how to install an ICS leak ROM.

from what i understand, when you are hboot 149007 and s-off you can flash everything

Also,how easy is it to return to a stock GSM EVO 3d after being rooted custom ROMed etc?

As i know you don't need s-off to install ics leaked roms cause the kernel is stock.
If i may give you a suggestion ... WAIT, at moment it seems that there is not a sure way to remove firmware upgrade. On my phone thare are now random issues.
Trust me, the ics experience is something less than you may expect... sense 3.6 kill s it

What means it can't recognize the P86IMG.zip? Does the scan for fimwares abort without any result?

Have you placed it in the root directory of your sd card?

it is called PG86IMG.zip so i guess you are right
but my file is 373MB!!!

plus im on hboot 1.49.0018 and want to get recovery & s-off first then root current rom, and then install virtuous (with the new P86IMG.zip which i guess contains the new firmware as well)

The P86IMG.zip will downgrade your HBOOT to 1.49.0007. After that you can use the Revolutionary method ( revolutionary.io ) to get S-off; Revolutionary only works with HBOOT 1.49.0007 or 1.49.0008, that's why you're downgrading the HBOOT.

exactly as above....use this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1316578 to downgrade to hboot 1.49.0007 (check for the steps...might need to skip some) then after that go here http://revolutionary.io/ and follow the instructions as mentioned below :

and now you are s-off....then through recovery you can flash any rom you like....and yes this method is fully reversible as mentioned here http://www.goodandevo.net/2011/07/ho...n-state-1.html

you just flash the official ruu and all goes back to normal including hboot
