Well, you can flash anything you want to the hboot partition even if its not signed, as Reviewers demonstrated (it'll fail at boot). The signature is checked on boot, not when you're writing to the partition. (That may be what you're trying to say, I dunno) But I knew that when I was flashing and make sure it was signed first. The signature appears to be in the header of the hboot image, just below the versioning information.

Is it that little progress bar thing on the right top corner every time it boots? I don't remember seeing that on previous HTC devices. @reviewers, did you get that s-off hboot?

No. It has nothing to do with it.
I didn't get the S-OFF HBoot he haven't been on Google Talk.

Guys, I'm sure I'm misplaced but I want to help as much as possible. Back on my HTC Nexus One, we achieved a custom S-OFF known as Blackrose. Here is the thread if you want to check it out or contact the dev and see if s/he can help in any way possible:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1270589

Again, I am sorry if this helps none; just throwing something else out there.
Samsung Galaxy S 4 (JFLTETMO)
HTC One S (HTC Ville)
Google Nexus One (HTC Passion)
T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream)
iPhone (3G)

Why? This is a discussion thread, when we actually have real s-off we can have a new one with clear instructions in the first post. And in the dev section.
