Within this article you will learn how to install Custom Recovery on your HTC android phone once you have S-off; even if your device is not rooted.

1- Enable USB Debugging on your phone.
To enable USB Debugging on your phone, go to Menu <<>> Settings <<>> Application <<>> Development then, mark or tick the USB Debugging option.

For Windows Vista/7 users, click the start button then, type "cmd" and press enter.

9- On the next line, type " adb devices "- this should display your stat and serial number. That's just to confirm that your device is ready.
Now, on the next line type " adb reboot-bootloader " and wait for few seconds. Your phone should now boot into fastboot - bootloader mode.

Also, to confirm that your phone is ready in fastboot mode, type " fastboot devices - your device new stat should appear below the command line.

Now, on the next line, type " fastboot flash recovery recovery.img " and wait for few seconds.

Please note that the recovery IMG file you may have downloaded for your device should be renamed to " recovery.img " within the ADB tools folder otherwise, command prompt may not load it.
