Unfortunately you will have to use HTC Dev to unlock and root to use rumrunner. I haven't seen any other way but try looking for a way to root without unlocking.

1) The warranty isn't voided by unlocking.

2) You can unlock via HTC Dev then S-OFF using Rumrunner and change everything back to stock if needs be... HTC will never know

They shouldn't but don't take my word for it! I remember reading something like that.

When I had a One X I unlocked it via HTC dev and I could hand it in for warranty. (Wouldn't turn on).

On the other hand rumrunner shouldn't alert HTC that your device has been unlocked.
