SEA Firmware when in UK

    I bought a SIM Free white Hero from Simply Electronics - all great, except it has SEA firmware - my language options were English (Malaysia), English (Taiwan) etc (You get the idea)
    Symbols on keyboards also get the option for Chinese (?) characters, no Market (to my horror) and a few other niggly things.

    So, I would rather not root due to that voiding the warranty, but does anybody have any suggestions of what to do?
    Surely it's a simply software change?
    I tried downloading HTC's latest ROM, said it wasn't suitable for my device?

    Or, do I just send it back and go elsewhere? Seems a little drastic.
    Thanks for your help

    You could try contacting HTC UK to see if they would replace the firmware for you.

    Failing that, I think the only way to install a WWE ROM via the 'official' RUU method will be the so-called "Gold Card" method.
