For maybe some more like me that want to go back to what it use to be with the hboot S-OFF, S-ON issue.

I had my phone S-OFF with alpharevx beta. Used CM7 -stable for couple days but decided i wanted to go back to all original. I first RUU my phone with the RUU_Buzz_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.22.405.1_Radio_13.55.55.2 4H_3.35.20.10_release_160191_signed.exe file. Boot it up, made sured it runs, then did what is instructed below here;

To be able to do this you need HTC USB drivers installed. Install the HTC pakage, reboot, uninstall the HTC-

Sync software, keep the drivers! reboot PC again.

Power off your phone. Plug in your USB cable to phone. Press volume down and powerup your phone. After it

settle navigate down and choose fastboot option.

1. Unpack these files to your c:\fastboot
2. Open up your windows command promt (WinVista/7 users rightclick choose run as Administrator)
3. in command promt type CD\ then press enter
4. then your should be in C:\
5. type cd fastboot
6. then you should now be in dir C:\fastboot
7. Im bored to death typing, look below. Beware of each command ends with enter. After success, reboot.


C:\fastboot>fastboot oem mb 9C068490 1 30
... OKAY

C:\fastboot>fastboot flash hboot hboot_buzz_7225_1.01.0001.nb0
sending 'hboot' (512 KB)... OKAY
writing 'hboot'... OKAY

Files needed (Windows version): megaupload.com/?d=UO9L74I9
Works perfectly for me.

* NOTE: Im not responsible for your phone if you brick/kill it. These steps worked for me!

After is better to avoid potential problems with Custom Recoveries and ROMs. Which is precisely what the OP says as well.

I first RUU my phone with the RUU_Buzz_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.22.405.1_Radio_13.55.55.2 4H_3.35.20.10_release_160191_signed.exe file. Boot it up, made sured it runs, then did what is instructed below here;

I had to triple check what I typed out of fear of brick, but alas, it worked like a charm!

Small Edit: This method also works with AlphaRev X (version 0.2pre5) that they just released.

Seems like no one tried it yet. For such a kind of thing, just after ruu, one should root the phone with superone click root method and then go for hboot flashing. But can't expect how the results will be. I think it will not brick since it is a fast boot flash. The possibility is the stock OS then becoming instable and unbootable. If so, just think there will not be alpharevx s-off option then, since it needs a full booted phone. And since there is no custom recovery, I think it becomes hard to make it normal (don't know if Su binary can be cleared from hboot menu through clear storage).

A better thing to try is retaining the custom recovery and flashing stock hboot. But still I can predict nothing. Ofcourse it might not brick the phone. But before doing anything, it is better to take the suggestion of the devs.
