    Hi all, ive had a look for this but seem to be confusing myself.

    Ive read the How To guides for unbranding my Orange HTC Desire, easy enough process. But, the guides and forum say offical OTA updates are not effected but this Guide states that:

    Is that true just for that process or is it true for all unbranding methods? If so, how do i do an OTA update with a Goldcard?


    Edit to add - Is the above FAQ quote referring separately to OTA updates and manual flash updates?

    Thanks

    Make your sd card or a spare one into a gold card, if you use your main one as a goldcard it will be ok to keep in the phone all the time.
    You will need your goldcard for all OTA updates, if you are on Orange you can get simlocked unless your phone is unlocked.

    Gold card tool can be found in this link along with guides for rooting etc.

    Reading the forum, you only get Sim Locked if you unbrand the phone with the sim still in.

    How do i OTA update with the gold card, just stick it in and do a check?

    If you make your permanent sdcard your goldcard, you will not have to change it when updates are available, just download OTA as normal. Make a backup goldcard though incase your sdcard corrupts or is damaged.

    I used the RUU method to debrand my Desire and get 2.2 and soon after received the OTA update to the new radio and rom version from HTC, so yes you will get OTA updates.
