You should be able to flash clockwork, then a custom ROM through fastboot without downgrade and root.

Haven't done it myself, but that is my understanding of how the unlocked bootloader works versus real S-Off.

I managed to do this hardware unlock and now have an unlocked bootloader. Tried. To flash cwm and corrupted the recovery. How do you install CWM through fastboot?

You have get CWM recovery, go into fastboot, connect USB, and then install via command prompt.

If you are unaware of how to do this try installing recovery via Rom Manager. Might be your easier solution.

Thanks for the reply, I actually downloaded cwm from a post in the dev section. Flashed it through command line with fastboot and now when I boot from recovery the device is stuck on a white HTC screen.

Also tried to use Rom manager but the device has to be rooted first. Can you root it through fastboot without cwm? Can I get a download link for a working cwm?

Maybe the downloaded file corrupted?
Maybe you can use this link as reference:
