Is Goldcard flashing more complicated then it was under Windows 7 Phones? I accidentally flashed a HTC Arrive (GoldC) bootloader to my HTC Trophy (SparkW), and was able to recover my Trophy with Goldcard after changing my Goldcard to work with the the HTC Arrive bootloader (I caught the mistake fast as soon as it booted up, so the phone never booted past the loader... prob saved me a complete bricking).

Are there new checks in place that prevent cross flashing via Goldcard with a simple file name (my googlefu is failing me atm), or has no one discovered the proper name of the image on either the M8 or WPM8? I'll likely be buying the WPM8 soon, and will start investigating this matter once I have it.

@TheXev on the Windows side, goldcard functions just the same as it used to on the Windows Phone 7-based devices. The name of the file for goldcard flashing is "W8ULDIAG.nbh"

I've read this entire thread again, and I'd just like to note that this image does flash on my true Windows based M8. Maybe I'll try attacking it from the other side, and try loading android on it?

Earlier in this thread, a link to ACDU was posted. I used that, and held both vol buttons on my M8 for Windows as I powered it on (don't start it with the USB cable already inserted, it doesn't like that for some reason). I'll record a video of the process from the Windows perspective because I have no clue if its similar to the Android side or not.

Restoring seemed to work perfectly in Windows 8.1, so all of my apps and settings came back right away! Since I don't have much to lose I'll do it again with video.

*edit* I slapped together a video. I apologize for some of the editing, but some of my MIED info would have displayed otherwise. :/

I'd be willing to try flashing Android to it if I could change the model number on the phone itself. :/
