    I cant seem to get the goldcard to work. I have tried a few times but it will not allow me to install a rom from the RUUs, I get the CID error. Im pretty sure im doing it correct because I don't get the format disk problem when I do the check at the end.

    I just want to load the generic rom so that I can get all the orange junk off my phone and receive updates earlier.

    I also tried the one click program but it didn't help me any.

    Also on a side note, should I get an unlock code before I do an OTA update so I don't get this wifi/simlock problem?

    Thanks

    Adam

    Welcome to the forum.

    Yes it would be a good idea to get the phone unlocked first if you are going to use the goldcard method, there is a tool for that in the rooting section.

    If you want to go the rooting way you don't have to get the phone unlocked, & you can use a custom rom which in my opinion is superior to the ota update.

    There is a one click tool for this also in the rooting section.

    I tried the goldcard tool too but it doesn't make a difference, it still will not work.

    I want the official rom because I'm lazy and want it to update itself haha

    There are quite a few people getting problems with the OTA update

    So you think I am better off using a custom 2.2?

    It is down to personal choice but the custom roms are continually being developed, you will find they will get better frame rates with hd video recording.
    They already score higher in the quadrant tests.

    ah ok, well I might just give a custom one a go for now and maybe come back to this problem later

    thank you

    Anoniemouse, I couldn't find the "rooting" section!

    OP, I am having the same problem as you: the SD card is read by the computer but I get a "old version" error when I try to use my goldcard. How did you fix it?


    Best,
    asdf

    P.S., I'm trying to root an HTC Magic, but I didn't see anyone in that forum with the same problem as I'm having. But perhaps our problem is the same.
