Since this is a topic where people ask regularly, I try to make a little TUT.
I hope it is helpful.
I am a noob myself, so please don't go on me
Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong or if I missed some important stuff.
What you need:
SDK Tool (type in your browser: developer.android.com/sdk/index.html)
Once you are on that page, download the package and install it.
after the install process has finished, you have to install some packages.
Important is the platform-tools package (there you find the most important commands)
Locate the folder on the harddisk of your PC
Push the Windows(Start) Buttom and type: cmd
This opens the command prompt
Now get into the root of the android folder (e.g. cd.. until you get into root of your harddisk)
(on my PC, it looks like this:
Just one thing to make it a little easier to come into the right folder:
Open the folder with the fastbootfiles in a window.
Go to command line and type cmd and the cmd.exe will be shown in the menu.
Drag & Drop the cmd.exe into the opened fastboot folder.
When you now open this cmd, it shows the right folder at the start and you can easily type the commands without navigation through folders.

Your phone has to be in fastboot-USB mode and connected to PC in order to understand the commands
Once you are in platform-tools folder, you can type commands
Most common commands are:
fastboot erase cache (sometimes helps if phone is in HTC bootloop)
fastboot flash boot (name of boot image / e.g. boot_1.2.3.img) (this is, like the name says, to flash a boot image)
fastboot flash recovery (name of recovery.img
fastboot oem lock ( to relock your phone, in case you have or want to flash a RUU)
fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin (to unlock again, if you already got the unlock key from HTCDev)
Flash firmware.zip using following terminal commands:
Please rename first downloaded .zip package to firmware.zip
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
This is almost obsolete, since we have the new Recovery 188.8.131.52 with Mount USB, but it is still good to know
to push ROM to SD card, if you were running superwipe without copying the rom file onto sd
1. You need recovery.img in your fastboot directory
2. Go into bootloader and connect phone
3. Then use: "fastboot boot recovery.img" (thus booting your image from pc and not the installed recovery).
4. When in recovery, you can use the adb commands.
5. You can try with "adb devices" which should show you serial of phone.
6. command: adb push rom_rom.zip /sdcard
credits to broncogr for finding that adb works if you use fastboot boot command and to Jotha for helping me out!
Or try following:
Copy rom to your adb-directory on PC
Switch OFF phone
Connect phone to PC
Wait until you hear the "USB-Connect"-sound on PC
Go into command window in adb-directory
Type "adb push rom.zip /sdcard/"
(where rom.zip is name of rom-file)
pushing is rather slow so it will take a while. Eventually you get an "OK". Then you can go into recovery and flash it.

For now, this is what I can think of, for sure there are many more commands, but hopefully we don't need them, but like I said, feel free and put them in here
I hope this will help some noobs, like myself!
