Either way, you cannot write to /system while the phone is booted normally without S-Off. Even as root.

Ah I see. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll remove the second method from my guide, since including that would be pointless if that's the case as you can now confirm.

You can't do any of this stuff without unlocking.

As of right now, it is working.

In command prompt, use the "cd" command. The easiest way to do this is to make a folder at the root of your hard drive (C:\) and place all files you need to flash in here e.g. "C:\android\" Then in command prompt, type in "cd .." and press enter until it displays "C:\". Then type (if you use the same name as the example) "cd android" and it will enter the folder "C:\android\" where you placed the files. Now you can continue with the rest of the guide.

Or if on Windows, simply: Do the following in folder where files are located.
Shift+Right-Click > Open Command Window Here

I've never had an HTC device before but does using the HTC bootloader unlock is that making it s-off? Also I don't see the DROID dna on the list
