    Hello,

    I am, trying to follow a guide a fellow forum member posted for me here and need a little help :

    http://androidforums.com/htc-desire/65355-iphone-desire-some-questions.html

    I have created a Goldcard as per the instructions here :

    How To: Create a Goldcard | The Unlockr

    And am downloading the ROM from here :

    Replacing T-mobile ROM with Generic HTC ROM - xda-developers

    I am not sure what to do now....I have a goldcard setup ok, but have this .exe from the above URL....I would really appreciate someone to guide me through the last steps.

    Thanks

    Put the goldcard into the phone, boot it up, connect the phone to PC, launch exe from PC, follow instructions. Done :)

    Congratulations.

    Although it's not rooted, only flashed. ;)

    No need to apologise, I didn't know the difference until last week :p

    Flashed mine to the latest Generic ROM the first day I got mine and then downloaded the OTA update as soon as I switched it on, and haven't noticed any lag at all.

    But then I didn't switch it on with the stock Vodafone ROM, so have nothing to compare it to.

    A rooted phone will give you access to the system folders.
