Default [Q] Need some help

Alright so I got a HTC Wildfire S (a510e) and I want to unlock the bootloader and root it.
Some more info:
Marvel pvt
S-off
hboot 1.09.0099
sw 2.26.206
Android 2.3.5
(stock & locked)


So just to clarify, I should look for OTA updates & apply any.
Then I should unlock bootloader via HTCdev.
Then I should follow: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1195275

I would also like to know if that tutorial is still applicable, I ask because it is fairly old.

Could some one also explain what S-off and S-on is?
And which I should have after rooting?

S-ON or security flag on is a way HTC prevents unauthorised flashing(custom recovery, roms etc), Since you have S-OFF you don't need to worry about that, You will have to unlock the bootloader via HTCDev since this implementation blocks "fastboot",which is used to flash a custom recovery
Here's what you have to do
  1. Unlock the bootloader via HTCdev.com
  2. Get a custom recovery, I'd recommend the TWRP recovery found on teamw.in(the recovery will be in the form of an .img file)
  3. Boot to the bootloader, select Fastboot using the vol keys and press the power button
  4. Now type "fastboot flash recovery 'name of the recovery image.img'

Now you can flash roms or root it
