Probably no one will care to update unrevoked to root that hboot, as no one will use it, as the rom can be flashed without run the ruu and without update the hboot...I hope, for you, that im wrong

Not yet. If your HBOOT version were upgraded, you should wait for root for that version, like I do

This is weird, I managed to install MIUI after installing the official Gingerbread RUU.

My phone was s-off and rooted with MIUI and nexus partition table before hand. After installing RUU my hboot was upgraded but I managed to retain s-off.

Am I the only one with the new hboot who is rooted?

Edit: not sure my hboot was changed actually, what is the new hboot version?

Wish I joined this forum 2 days earlier as I wouldn't have upgraded to 2.3 on the desire from reading this. Guess i'll have to wait for a root on the 2.3 so i can get cyanogenmod on here.

There's yet another user in the Gingerbread Changelog thread that says he flashed the ruu and it didn't overwrite his s-off Revolutionary HBOOT. I guess this means that they must be able to get root in some way?

I read somewhere on XDA that it's got to do with having a "downgrade protected" HBOOT (see alpharev.NL) before running HTC's gingerbread RUU.

I didn't do anything after I installed the RUU, in fact I actually assumed I lost my s-off until going to my bootloader where I noticed it still said alpharev at the top. Needless to say I was s-off'd prior to updating.

Must have been a protected hboot...
