It is not the phone,it is that crap howardforum they have the absolute worst servers around, it is even slow on my main computer and I have a 20MB DSL connection, that worthless forum freezes and stops working all together on my computer where as this forum works great on my Desire and computer both!!!

What's that?

In the FAQ above your saying that a phone doesn't need to be rooted to be able to make a gold card. I didn't realize that.

Yup, you dont have to..

Just make sure usb debugging is enabled, then the adb command would return the CID..that's the only step actually needed to be done on the phone..

Actually you dont even need a phone to get the CID..So actually you dont even need a phone to create the goldcard

Hi
I followed this guide and installed the stock 2.2, debranding my 02 2.1 phone in the process.

Since then I've had some of the over the air updates, but have not bothered with the very latest.

IF I wanted to go back to 02 2.2 what would I need to do ?

Thanks

This thread is NOT for the HD if you want to do it you had better head over to the HD forum and see what they have there, this is for the Desire only!!!!

Hi

I need correct RUU for H3G UK for HTC DESIRE SLCD
Sorry to bother you mate
but I hope you are the one who can help me out
I just installed the RUU from one of your thread on my htc deisre .93 Hboot, clockworkmod recovery 3.0.0.0 radio rom 32.44, and then i installed RUU for H3G UK and now my phone's display is gone as i can feel vibration, lights working but touch screen is not working

I am not sure if my touch screen is SLCD/AMOLED and there is not specified on RUU links if they are for SLCD/AMOLED.

Even I can not send it back to three.co.uk as I am not sure if on the phone three software is installed including recovery, radio etc or some custom rom.

I will be glad if you could reply to me and send me some link of both SLCD and AMOLED displays RUU.

Many Thanks


Raj

Would you kindly provide me the link for the CMDA Desire forum? I don't seem to see it under the Forum page.

Thank you

I think he is mistaken. There isn't one here. What exactly are you looking for?

Just rec'd my Alltel CDMA Desire yesterday. Has Android 2.1, and I am poking around, trying to find a CDMA 2.2 ROM to update to, either an official HTC release, or if there is an Alltel 2.2 CDMA version available.

My phone came rooted with Unrevoked, ClockworkMod recovery, and wiped to factory with the Alltel ROM. It's working fine, but some say that 2.2 is better / faster.

Wondering also, if I can update my radio? If it's necessary

I'm new to Android, so need a little hand holding...

Thanks for any direction you can provide

Being rooted is good.

Extracting a radio from an RUU is no easy feat and all the radio's you can download are NOT for CDMA so completely strike the idea of upgrading your radio from your mind.

See the Rooting FAQ in my sig. This will tell you all you need to know about flashing a custom ROM.

Here are all the CDMA Custom roms you can use.

There are sense roms, Vanilla roms and MIUI roms available for you. Also CM7 is vanilla 2.3 (Gingerbread). Vanilla means no-sense

[CDMA/USCC] Pre-Rooted 2.2 RC3/Final
[CDMA/USCC] MIUI 12.3.1
[CDMA/USCC] MIUI for Desire C
[CDMA/USCC] HTC Desire C ROMS
[CDMA/USCC] CyanogenMOD 6.1.1 Desire C
[CDMA/USCC] HTC Desire Froyo 2.2 with Sense UI
[CDMA/USCC] CyanogenMOD Nightlies
[CDMA/USCC] The Ultimate Droid v2.5.0
[CDMA/USCC] CyanogenMOD CM7 RC2
[CDMA/USCC] SleekSense

Do I need to make a Gold Card for unrooting an Unlocked & Unbranded HTC Desire (GSM) (Amoled) which I want to root with a new ROM? I want to be able to unroot my phone if I want to in the future.

Thanks in advance.

You don't need a goldcard if you use an RUU corresponding to your branding (unbranded in this case) and region. Check your software version and then look in shipped-ROMs to see if you can find one.

The official HTC 2.3 upgrade works with most GSM brandings without a goldcard.

However, a goldcard won't do any harm.
