This is interesting! Hopefully we will get s-off too still much needed a custom recovery thanks for this

supercid can be 11111111 or 22222222 and probably 333333333 etc

I posted the supercid guide so i could post the s-off here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=38346549, i wanted them separate as not everyone may want both.

I just recently switched to HTC. What exactly does superCID do?

puts your phone in a region free form, so you can and will be able to flash other roms from different region(debrand)
normall the output would be ATT_01 for USA or something along the lines thats letting the phone now to only accept roms that have region of Att_01

No this is only the cid. The cid is what region the phone is for. It is also what the ruu checks for compatibility
