Okay guys - big news(at least for me)
I followed the method described in this thread, to prevent relocking after a flash back to an updated version of my original branded Telstra ROM.

Then I followed the steps in this thread to get the NODo update this morning.

When all was done I reconnected my phone and went to WPDM and it loaded and connected just like before the update.
All other programs work as well, Registry Editor, Touch Explorer, etc.
Hope this helps someone.
