Hooray. We have our dev section now.

Here are a few helpful links. They may become duplicates if the other threads get moved over to here. Please forgive me if they do. XDA is pretty un-cluttered right now due to the early development stages of the phone so it is also pretty easy to just navigate there and look around also.

ATTENTION:
Before doing any of the below it may be best to RESET GOOGLE WALLET to prevent your phone's root/unlock status from bricking your NFC secure element. And to do it each time you install a new ROM.
PSA: Clear Google Wallet Settings Before Flashing ROM/Hard Resets! - xda-developers
and
**LOOK UP HERE** Google Wallet is root/unlock sensitive.

Thanks for keeping this up to date, it's nice having the relevant threads all in one place.
How crazy/awesome is it that we already have 3 ROMs, a CM9 port already booting, and several mods for a phone that is just now being officially launched? I'm really looking forward to some of the great things the devs are going to be able to do with this phone!

The three that are selected by default. System, Data, and Boot.

Updated. And if you wanna go bobbing for apples you may find a nice fix within the links. I changed its color to make it easier to spot.

Do I need to unlock the Bootloader to flash custom Roms? I don't want to void my HTC warranty.

Well, share you fears when it comes to warranty and maybe we can put your mind at ease. You do need to flash a custom recovery to flash ROMs and your bootloader needs to be unlocked for that. I think. Now, I am second guessing myself.





PS
Several links added to OP.
