Can I install custom roms without engineering version of HBOOT?

I mean if I root Desire HD with visionary then use Rom Manager to install CWMR can I just take any Custom Rom like ViperDHD 3.0.1 and install it through recovery do I need the Engineering HBOOT?

I have CM12 installed in HTC Desire HD . My Desire HD is S-ON , I would S-OFF so I can use succesfully the CM12 OTA updates .

I would follow the following "how to" to get S-Off

2.1) Download sfjuocekr DHD script for flashing HBOOT from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1290197847
2.2) Unzip it and copy it to Your SDCard (It's important that You have on Your SDCard root directory with name DHD and all files inside this directory. Rename DHD-smart folder on Your SDCARD to DHD.
2.3) Run Terminal Emulator
2.4) Type su
2.5) Type "sh /sdcard/DHD/check
(Please be aware that You have to type "sh" in front of command)
2.6) If everything went OK type
sh /sdcard/DHD/backup
2.7) If this also went OK proceed with
sh /sdcard/DHD/hboot

My question is ;

- is the procedure above OK to be used if I have CM12 ?
- If I apply the procedure above I lose current installed Recovery TWRP ?
- If I apply the procedure above I lose current data and pass installed in my phone ?

Thank you!

I tried it and I received this

root@ace:/ # sh /sdcard/DHD/check
df4fd77f44993eb05a4732210d2eddc6  /sdcard/DHD/hboot_eng.nb0
df4fd77f44993eb05a4732210d2eddc6 << CORRECT MD5

If the above MD5 sums do not match ... DO NOT CONTINUE!!!
Something went wrong with the download or extracting this archive!

Making kernel module for version:

Testing kernel module:

insmod: can't insert '/sdcard/DHD/wpx.ko': kernel does not support requested operation

If you get this error:

insmod: init_module '/sdcard/DHD/wpx.ko' failed (Function not implemented)


insmod: can't insert '/sdcard/DHD/wpx.ko': Function not implemented

This means the module worked ;)
You can now continue with:
sh /sdcard/DHD/backup
I completed the procedure but I am still S-ON and the phone rebooted correctly. any idea please ?
