You can start with reading this thread.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1416836

Than I could recomend the RuRaider one from PigrateGhost, the Beta release 10 is stable and good. It is also using 2.3.7.

In the development section there is a thread which has Unlocked Stock, with CIQ stuff removed which also is good and stable rom.
HTC Raider (Bell)
Right now running Stock

A lot of the instructions show multiple ways to do the same things. to break it down, you first need to unlock the phone. Unlocking is the most difficult part. (and its not that difficult). Then you flash the kernal, then the rom. I havent tried Rumraider. But, Ive had stock, Holicakes and HoliRaider 0.1 and 0.2. So far HoliRaider 0.2 is the best. Take your time, follow the directions exactly as listed and within an hour or less you will be there.

I recently unlocked my Vivid, it sounds like you're talking about the part where you have to download the Android SDK, yes? After downloading the SDK, there are 2 parts of the SDK you need to add before you can begin. If this is where you are at, try the instructions here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html.

#Edit#

Also, try unchecking everything that's checked in the SDK program, and only check the two parts htcdev instructions say you need:
"...You will see there are many packages you can update. Please install Android SDK Platform Tools and Android SDK Tools (Please update it if your SDK version is r11)."

Good deal, just making sure you got unlocked - I figured since it was a couple days old.
