Well the bat file won't run obviously, but if you open up the bat and step through the commands it will work just fine.

So this will work with the new HBOOT as well then? Say if someone uses the 2.20 RUU or got an ATT HOXL with the updated bootloader that came with 2.20 ?

Example - I can flash the 2.20 RUU to get a "fresh start" for my phone ( I have the older hboot , unlocked with S-On, never took the 2.20 update), run this, re-unlock, and then put CM10 back on and everything will function as it does now ?

Sorry, made a small mistake. I've uploaded a new version to the same URL, please re-download and try again.

Why would you want to. Then you would have to flash boot.img separately which isn't that big of a deal but still annoying.

Yes of course, this is a root exploit for 2.20 users pretty much.
But keep in mind if you flash the 2.20 ruu you will have the newer HBoot that cant flash kernels, radios etc in recovery so using fastboot will be needed.
