I recently bought HTC DELUXE, its an unlocked phone and dont have any carier sign board on it. Its GSM CDMA unlocked, world phone, bought from eBay in just $200.

Its a true copy of droid DNA, but wen I looked closely it doesnt have memory card slot, also there is a slight difference between between model number.

Is it okay to flash the latest firmware of droid DNA over it ? Are both the phones same ?
radio ? Bootloader ?

Can some one please help me out.

Once this confusing problem is solved i will start developing android 5.0 port on it.
sometines even Rom porters need help
thanks guys awaiting response.

It's an HTC butterfly and DNA ROMs won't boot on your device. I'm pretty sure there's a HTC butterfly thread here on XDA

I just got a "HTC Deluxe"today new in the box for $179.Being the adventurous soul I am I decided to see if my favorite Rom ViperDNA would flash and work correctly.Lo and behold I'm up and running.I can confirm ViperDNA 1.3.5 works with no issues.Its still JB 4.1.1 but with all the options Viper has I can live with JB.For now anyway.I will in the days coming experiment and see what DNA Roms will work on our device without issues.May even try to port a few Roms over.A special thanks to GeekyNimrod from the CyanideL team for his contribution in getting me up and running.

I'm finding that anything 4.1.1 for the DNA works just fine on our HTC Deluxe.I'm running Micromods rooted stock 2.07.605.1 710ORD for the DNA right now with zero issues.Opens up new possibilities I think.
