They go out in batches, usually unbranded handsets first and then branded devices (depending on how quick the carrier OK the updates). For example, I have an unbranded M8, CID HTC__001, software build 1.54.401.10 (the latest). You have an Orange/EE branded handset, hence the CID ORANG001. I'll get updates before you as my phone gets updates directly from HTC whereas you have to wait for Orange/EE to approve the update and add their little bits and bobs to it

Now, as you're S-OFF, you could convert your phone to 100% stock unbranded like mine and be done of the Orange/EE gumpf BUT you'll need your backups in case of warranty

Yes, but you still have the stock Orange software so you're still waiting on them to push the update...if you want the stock, unbranded ROM then you can follow the guide in my signature and you'll end up with a 100% stock ROM
