Hey,

Bit of a newb at this S-OFF stuff right now so could anyone care to explain?

Since im SuperCIDed, can I let's say flash a GPe Rom on my HTC one? How does it work? Can anyone explain?

Many thanks

Do you mean you just want to flash a Rom? Or a full conversion to GPe?

Yes. You can flash any ROM now - regardless of region. Doesn't matter if it's CM11, GPE, SENSE, AOKP etc.

The CID number determines what region the phone was bought in, and will only allow other ROMs or OTAs from that region to be flashed to the phone. Now that you've made your phone super cid it means you've no limits to what ROMs you can flash.

This is in layman's terms though, since I'm no developer. Hope I've made some kind of sense.

Oh yeah that's very easy. I dint think you would of needed super cid but it's good to have.

Just flash a recovery from the boot loader and copy the GPe rom to your phone and flash!
