HBOOT for HTC Desire Now Available

XDA member ieftm and team has managed to develop an HBOOT image which disables NAND protection on the HTC Desire. This unlocks the /system and /recovery partitions, and allows for unsigned ZIP files to be installed, among a few other things. So, it basically allows for more development for the Desire. Please make sure to follow all instructions carefully, for there is a chance of bricking your device.

HTC implemented security on their newer generation phones. This flag, called @secuflag, controls whether your phone has
it’s NAND or flash unlocked. Most noticeably, S-ON (security on) will read-lock your /system and /recovery partition, to name a few. Also, secuflag controls whether zip files being flashed through recovery or fastboot, are signed by HTC.
The now notorious S-OFF (security off) will disable this NAND security.

More technical details, instructions, and download can be found on the official AlphaRev website. To join the discussion on XDA, continue on to the HBOOT thread.
