NO!

You can't flash stock rom (dev edition) unless you do the conversion thing (unlock bootloader, root, s-off, change mid (if required), change cid)

With only an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery, you can flash custom rom mean not stock like cyanogen, arhd, viperone etc...

you need adb/fastboot + your drivers properly set in your computer. with phone in fastboot usb mode and connected to your computer open a cmd prompt and write ''fastboot getvar all'' then copy/paste result here so I can see.

If you don't know what adb/fastboot is, you are not ready to start change thing in your phone and you should go read about this matter.

Code:
c:\fastboot>fastboot getvar all
< waiting for device >

getvar:all FAILED (status read failed (Too many links))
finished. total time: 0.039s
is there a tuturial for all of this? (unlock bootloader, root, s-off, change mid (if required), change cid)

What you need to do in order (click to links for tutorials):
  1. unlock bootloader using htcdev.com
  2. install a custom recovery (i'll suggest you go with TWRP 2.6.3.3)
  3. ROOT your phone
  4. s-off your phone with revone tool (for 1.44 hboot)
  5. change cid to BS__US01 (note there is 2 underscore)
    Code:
    fastboot oem writecid BS__US01
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
  6. no need to change MID (PN071200 is good for dev edition)
  7. download and run the dev edition ruu.exe
