HTC Tattoo - Getting rid of the Malaysian ROM
I'm starting this post because that a lot of Tattoo user (like myself) purchased an unlocked phone that ended being a version for the Malaysia market. As far as I can tell, this version has two major limitations:
1 - You can only set the Locale option to Malaysia or Vietnam (English); limiting the use of predictive text to the English language.
2 - NO Android Market, only a disappointing duplicate named TouchME.
From a quick swipe in various forums, it seems that the only way to get by these limitations is to install an international ROM (Gold card)
My question is; was anyone performed this operation successfully? Is everything still working afterwards (GPS, 3G, HTC Sense, etc)?
Happy New Year
