Simple and concise guide. You could maybe run us trough the Aroma installer options and such. I recommend doing the full HTCDev unlock, SOFF and root for trouble free installation. Installing any custom ROM without SOFF is quite a risk for bricking or at least disabling your device as far as I can see.

it doesn't bring any brick after a false installation in S-ON devices but only it is not booting
that's why all of us who are S-ON are using 4ext recovery(smartflash)

The newer ICS ROMs generally require you to flash the corresponding firmware first. The firmware includes the radio and the RIL is included in the ROM! So you do not need to flash a new radio/RIL pair unless you want to change it.
and if every one require these guides then iw ill add them
