unlocking your bootloader via HTC allows you to flash roms via adb (android-Sdk)
having s-off allows you to do all this without going through HTC like i did.
basically i used the XTC clip, which gave me s-off and unlocked my bootloader at the same time it installed cwm 4.
you have cwm5 and i use cwm 4 as my setup currently doesn't allow me to update it. why i dont know.
best way possible is to use you standard rom once you have rooted it.
in the post i left previous i listed a topic which kanded wrote on using data2sd script. See here for data2sd post> Data2SD
get root, follow that post to the letter! do not deviate from it, make sure you make a flash back up via cwm (backup and restore, makes a nandroid backup image of your current setup, which allows you to flash back anytime to what your using now)
and then copy your sd card to your computer.(image backup)
as this process will wipe everything stored.
as for custom Roms, thats your choice.....not allot around at the minute, i have 2 Chinese UK O2 Roms, both totally different, but both have memory issues, as for using the data2SD i still have to figure out why my handsets not allowing it.
so once this is working on a standard ROM, maybe it can be used on these other Roms i have.
personally stick with what you got and try kandeds data2sd method...see if that works for you.
i can be contacted via gtalk on your handset, type in email@example.com
