So questions abound; Do I need s-off and how do I know if I have that? I can't find my bootloader number probably b/c I unlocked it at HTC -correct?
So, where am I in terms of progress moving forward and does any of this make sense to the masses?
Thanks for assistance.
if you are currently running ICS ..then SOFF is not mandatory for flashing CUSTOM ROMS
now first to check you have SOFF or not
go to bootloader and check this line "PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-OFF RL" if S-OFF is there then you are SOFF
if you are S-ON then you will have this line "PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-ON RL"
now based on your post
im assuming that you have unlocked bootloader, root(which you did it using my tool) and ROM manager (means you have CWM recovery )
so now you have all the prerequisites for flashing a ROM
so follow this below guide to letter to HAVE custom ROM with S-ON
(see in the process you need to change recovery to 4EXT which wont run with ROM manager ..as it has separate app (4EXT controller) ...but 4EXT will do a lot of good in your case )
