I've just upgraded my HTC shift with Kingspec 128GB sad and 2GB ram. Now the shift feels super fast!
My version is the italian one and liberate with Romeo OS and running win 7 before the upgrade. i got the sad along with an oem version (built 9200) of windows 8.
install was by using the usb tool to boot and install the OS. i was intending to use the acorns true image however, the image was screwed and hence i decided to install the windows 8.
it's not a path for novices but people with a bit of tinkering knowledge will be able to to do it.
Wifi works and SD card works.
Worth of a mention is one seller on Ebay whom sold me the Keyboard. It came with a few broken keys and they offered to send me another at no extra cost!

The sad sure took his time to come. almost 1 month!
For those who are willing to take the gamble to upgrade, Go ahead. It's worth it.
Battery life improved significantly. Now running close to 2 hours with simple email reading and bait of youtube here and there.
Looking to get another battery and leather case.
