I'd like to flash my phone with one of the ROMs on XDA Developers site

Has anyone here done so with their HTC Snap?
If so,what do I need to do so to ensure success?
Is there any specific information I need to get off of Telecom before I start?

The phone is unlocked, and app unlocked and my SPL is 1.24

Do I still need to follow the HARDSPL instructions as per this thread?:

Also, do I have to have autosync running? For some reason it just won't run on my XP PC.

Thanks in advance.

What is it about this ROM that you really want? I haven't seen any decent features in these cooked ROMs that would make me move away frmo the current ROM.

Longer battery life. Better screen layout, in particular the Home screen. Far more customisable layout. A lot of programmes that I use and like. Just better overall from what I've read.

Don't those screenshots look sweet to you?

Ha! They do indeed, just realised I was looking at the wrong post! I'll see if I can find out from some contacts what information you need to know from Telecom.

Looks like the hardspl hasn't been tested on an S523 yet ... so you could be the first! :) Certainly if it works looks like the way to go for flashing with a cooked ROM.

Says its compatible with 52x so should be fine, might give it a whirl tonight.

Great. I'd go straight ahead myself, but I don't have a temp phone to use, in case this goes horribly wrong. I'm sure that it wouldn't be a problem to recover. It's just a time issue.

(I like your signature BTW. Nice bit of info.)

Brilliant! I've been looking for that info every since I switched to Telecom, but to no available. That'll come in real handy.
