Default [Q] Official unlock with firmware version 2.42.405.4

Hello,
I am trying to unlock (s-off?) my desire z with official procedure at htcdev.com site.
Unfortunately I had an ota upgrade to 2.4.405.4 (perhaps bug fixing...)
Obviously OFFICIAL htc software does not recognize 2.4.405.4 version.....

What can I do now?

Thanks,
Mario

don't use official unlock, bad choice you will be so unhappy. look for the xda wiki guide how to root the proper way, or google cyanogen vision root wiki

if you have already unlocked the bootloader using the steps on htcdev.com you need to lock again the bootloader otherwise the xda guide will not work

Ok, but all guides say to backup with titanium backup before rooting. But titanium needs rooted phone to do backups...

How can I backup my phone????

Thanks,
Mario

well there is no need to back anything up but if you really want to, fully read the guide and it will show you how to temp root you phone and then use titanium to back things up. personally I feel this is unnecessary but do as you'd like
