Yup i even S-Off from mwakious3DromĀ® ROM! I tried and thank god it worked as getting back to stock was too much of a trouble lol. :P

Oh and about 4EXT recovery yes you do need the latest as i couldn't instal the Cyanogenmod 4.4 without the latest update.

Also it's not necessary to root the stock rom when you want to flash a custom rom that is already rooted.
I did the steps as follows (in short):
- unlock bootloader (the htcdev method)
- do the wire trick (controlbear)
- flash the juopunutbear hboot in fastboot (1.49.9999)
- flash the recovery image in fastboot (latest 4ext)
- flsh any custom rom
Starting point on both phones was stock ics locked, s-on, hboot 1.53.0007

Don't get me wrong, I only wanted to help to get your guide a little leaner.

I followed these steps, everything was a success, but i m having problem flashing recovery image in fastboot? 4ext? I cannot seem to find this file i need? Other i have tried just hangs. It says my device is not rooted. So do i need to flash recovery before it' rooted?

Thanks.

Here you can find the latest 4ext. Flash it and you can install every rom. Root is not required because all custom roms are pre-rooted.
Code:
fastboot flash recovery 4EXT_Recovery_Touch_v1.0.0.6_RC1.img

you're gonna have a bad time:
-juo dropped support for windows
-windows needs drivers... they act weird on fastboot
-a VM won't do too as the drivers of windows will be needed... which act weird
