Awesome man. Great job. Just to be clear. After unzipping the file, all of them need to go in the data/local folder yes?

You should be able to use root explorer and yes put all files in /data/local including the hboot_dhd.nb0 file if you are going to do the optional steps.

Edit: Added mention of root explorer method between steps 4 and 5.

Eng hboot will let you flash anything you want. Stock hboot will still limit your choices.

Yes you can just do the optional steps from the OP to go back to eng hboot. Actually having stock hboot will let you see if it worked without having to do anything special.

So this did work w/stock device and kernel?

Try running visionary r14 and doing permroot option. Being a stock rom you may still have to fiddle with it a little. Not quite an exact science.

So the bootloader version 0.86.0000 provides simunlock correct? If i read correct from the first page of op. For now i think i will stay on engineer hbootloader.

Also one more thing op, I found a great video on how to setup adb. I have already got my adb setup using this. If u like you can post it in the op section. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UF5w1dKe2U
