To gain root, first we need a custom recovery.

I have been trying to contact people on here that seem capable of making a custom recovery for this device, but so far no luck.
I have also been watching the Chinese forums for this device as well, but nobody there has a custom recovery yet either.
It will happen in time.. we had the same process last year with the M7 dual sim version. in the end we even had Enlish Roms flashed onto the devices... Im sure the same will happen here eventually.

Let's hope so ,but seriously people should avoid buying dual sim version of phones 'cuz it's always a trouble...

Hi, when you get English roms flashed on to the unit, does it mean you get OTA updates for that rom too?

Do you mean when you flash a custom rom, can you then get OTA updates from HTC? The short answer to that is no, you cannot receive official updates for a custom ROM.

If you mean that you wan't original ROM in English, then the original Chinese ROM does have English language, and with that you can of cause receive OTA updates. I think all original HTC phones have English language.
