Basically, just follow a 2.00.002 to 0.98.00000 downgrade guide involving using htcdev, such as this one, starting from the step where you push misc_version onto the device (you're already rooted and unlocked).

Obviously, if you don't want to S-OFF, you don't have to run Revolutionary.

You will need to use a RUU, you will need to re-lock your bootloader immediately before the RUU step. If you're not sure about how to choose a RUU, please see the relevant section of my guide in my signature.

If you want to sell the device as a 2.00.002 (you meanie! xD) then you can apply a newer RUU than for 0.98.0000, just don't put on ICS D:
ROM CM11 Andromadus alpha 5 PAC-man v23.0.0
Recovery 4EXT Recovery Touch v1.0.0.6 RC1
SAGA PVT ENG S-OFF (+files) (+guide)
HBOOT-2.00.2002 (PG8810000) 0.98.2000

I get permission denied when trying to change the misc_version number, any ideas?

EDIT: I just sorted it

You need to run misc_version as root, use su to gain root in your terminal for when you issue the command. You may need to interact with a permission request on the phone screen.

If you have an old adb on your computer and your rom is android 4.x, you might need to get a newer adb for it to work properly (some security stuff was changed).
