    Look into creating a goldcard to install the RUU of choice. that will get you passed the cId check.

    or s-off and flash a sense 3 ROM.

    @maxpower101

    The latest stock European ROM for the Desire S can be found here. I'm pretty sure it's a safe source as it's often referred to on xda-developers.com.

    However, this post (posted 4.1.12) suggests there are rumblings that Virgin are about to release (or already have released) a Gingerbread 2.3.5 OTA for the Desire S. (See the link in that particular post for more information.) Depending on how desperate you are to de-brand, you might want to wait a week to see if this report has any legs.
