Enjoy!

In case you need it after the process completes successfully:

Flash your recovery using 'fastboot'. Do not ask here how to use FASTBOOT, there's a million tutorials for it if you just search a bit.

The livecd will now ask you to optionally install CWM-AlphaRev Recovery 2.5.1.8. This -should- support PVT4 models as well.

---

AlphaRev 1.8 has been released. This features:

-improved logic
-on-screen progress (on the phone)
-optional recovery installation
-multiple device support

---

More new HBOOTS have been released for bravo.

-PVT4 support
-6.93.1002 version numbering (better recognition)
-Downgrade protection (cannot be overwritten by a RUU, unless you flash a downgrader HBOOT first.)
-Misc is supported to be flashed through fastboot (for usb unbricking or mainver downgrading)
-SuperCID patched, never need a goldcard again with these hboots. You can now safely flash a RUU, your HBOOT will not be overwritten.

-New sizes for Oxygen and CM7 HBOOT, indicated by the 'r2' tag.

Everyone is advised to upgrade to these new HBOOTS, even when you are using the stock partition table.

Make sure to verify the MD5SUM listed in the table right before you're about to flash these images!
If you don't, and the file is corrupt, you WILL brick your bootloader.

I think it could potentially be a problem with our burnt ISO files. I think VirtualBox sorted it for me.

S-off = security off, i.e "full root"
