    I reside in Bahrain, where mobile phones are not network locked, i.e. unbranded.

    OTA update to Froyo isn't available, and so I figured I'd go about this manually.

    For an unbranded device, I am getting Error 131 - customer ID error.

    My current ROM, btw, is RUU_Bravo_HTC_ARA_1.30.415.3_T_Radio_32.41.00.32U_4.08.00.09_release_139993_signed (quite sure)

    'Ve been trying to update to 2.09.405.8... (Btw, any significant difference between this and "2.10.405.2"?)

    Please help me with this... I have been searching in vain. And I am rather desperate to remove some of the nosy pre-installed apps (pertaining to the "locale")!

    Many thanks!

    Also tried running the update from the SD card. The update file doesn't even get detected by the bootloader!

    :(

    In the meanwhile, I have another question - I have read about creating a "gold card", which is supposed to help while dealing with "branded" phones.

    Although mine is unbranded, is it worthwhile to try the "gold card" technique? It will flash the existing ROM back to the generic HTC ROM, if I am not mistaken.

    Kindly clarify.

    Solved it, folks.

    This is what I did -

    1. Downloaded the latest *official* ROM - 2.10.405.2 (WW English version)
    2. Set up Android SDK
    3. Converted the 2GB
