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?

Hello

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

Code:
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:
ODP-g655

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)

or

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 ?

I had to downgrade my phone using aahk2, I think this guide only works with downgraded HBOOT. There are many outdated or dead links about that out there. If you want to use aahk2, it makes your phone ENG S-Off automatically.
Following points seem to be important:
- Don't use USB 3.0
- Use the right RUU package
- Flash an older ROM (could be my fault but it didnt work with fewer ones)
- If you are HTCDev unlocked, relock it before using hack kit

Correct me if I' wrong...

Thank you, if all this hard work will be required I will surely stay S-ON.
BTW , I have understood S-OFF means changing only a boot file , is it correct ?
Can't I do this procedure from terminal ? If yes, anyone can provide me the correct S-OFF boot for a Cynagenmod 12 , thanks.

There are plenty of advantage and few disadvantage on S-ON.

If you're rooted Security-ON(S-ON) means to flash rom onto your device requires pc for flash a boot.img(kernel). Which kinda advantage, will give enough time to think about what you're doing, lastly if anything is inappropriate it won't let you install i guess. Where as on S-OFF, you're done!!!! No point return.

I would advice you, If you're happy with amount of flashing thing with usage of pc than don't go with S-OFF. Also during process of S-OFF you might ends up with BRICK.

You can't do this using terminal and its not just about changing boot file(kernel).
