I take this back now that I have re-read plambrechtsen's reply above. But I would rather they said "there is a problem with this build and that's why it's taking so long". In the end I want it right, bug free and working properly on XT, otherwise I may as well root the phone load the European ROM on it.
You can't flash the European RUU just through root, you need s-off as well. Root gives you ability to install CWM and then flash custom roms
Yeap, aware of that having installed custom roms on my previous two HTC android phones. Was just saving a few keystrokes, which I have now used . Don't want to void HTC's warranty while I'm still shaking down the hardware. Have been wondering about the legality under NZ consumer law for a software change to void a hardware warranty.
