    How do I check which MoDaCo release I have? I've looked in Settings/About but I'm not sure which I'm supposed to be looking at because my build number is still the original orange number 2.73.405.X. Is it the kernel number?

    Recent releases are named either "MCR2.X" (prior to v2.3) or "MoDaCo Custom ROM 2.x" (v2.3 onwards) in "Build Number".

    x.xx.405.x is a generic HTC build, not Orange. The first MCR version that Paul released based on 2.73.405.x was MCR2.0, so I'd guess that's what you're running.

    Will this one just update over my previous MoDaCo ROM or do I need to do something before?

    It installed over my previous version just fine. No wipe, no lost settings.

    Hi Slug, so if I download the MoDaCo RoM, i'll just place this update file with the previous one in my sdcard directory and boot into the recovery image and flash the update?

    Thanks for your advice.


    PS. - I've done the previous Rom update. It's currently on 2.3

    Yup, if you use the "flash any" option (2nd from top iirc) you don't even need to rename it to update.zip. Remember though, the "core" version has to be installed - the "enhanced" update (if that's your choice) merely adds to that and isn't standalone.
