UPDATE!

it has been confirmed that the new factory stock PG59IMG.zip, which makes the HTC Unlock tool work, can be flashed even if you are S-ON. So, nobody is completely stuck anymore, everyone at least has access to the HTC unlock tool. for instructions on how to do this, go here:

So this unlocked the bootloader? Gain root? And if you was S-ON made it S-OFF?

What Yogi said. I've had S-OFF for a very long while and, after getting tired of the insane battery drain on the CM7 Alpha build, I decided to revert to a rooted OTA rom. This reversion process, however, left my device S-OFF with a locked bootloader -- and the HTC unlock tool would fail in this situation.

I was able to work around this, of course, but with the new *full* OTA-based img I was finally able to get the bootloader fully unlocked. So now the device is S-OFF *and* bootloader unlocked.

S-off is coming. No ETA yet. Meantime, people S-ON can now use the unlock method through HTC to gain some control over their devices now that we have a working copy of their OTA.

You will be able to root, custom recovery and install ROMs. Some restrictions apply like changing radio and a few others, but we'll get it.
