1) Copy the boot loader zip to internal storage
2) Boot CWM
3) Flash the zip
4) Lock the Boot loader and remove tampered
5) Run RUU when the phone is in fastboot

Is this the correct procedure ?
yep, sounds good.

STAY S-OFF

REALLY THANKS A LOOT. I really don't know how to thank you enough. My phone is back to normal
One last question: HTC UAE has told me that the phone has to be S-ON to be repaired for free. So simply running that command provided in the guide will get it S-ON right ?

yes as mentioned in the guide, however you have to do this before updating to 3.xx because hboot 1.55 is patched for that (as mentioned in the guide)

so if you're just sending to repair, and think it's necessary go ahead with s-on. after that you can take OTA updates... then again why bother, i'm sure they'll update it in the repair center.
