Default [Q] How Can I flash an Official European Rom on my Desire S???

I just got my Desire S couple days ago from Singapore but from what I understand, it has an Indian IMEI and only the Indian English available for setup.

Is it possible to flash one of the European ROMs on the device? My build number is 1.31.720.2

I think its possible if you use a Goldcard (search in the forum about it)
then start flashing the rom

Thanks for the links. So, what exactly do I do after creating the goldcard? How do I downgrade?

Or Once you have ran the RUU you will find a PG***.zip file in temp folder, copy that to your SD-Card and boot into bootloader and hopefully it should auto detect it.

I created the gold card but when I try to flash the 1.28.401.1 european rom over the current 1.31.720.2 rom that I have on this phone, I get the following error.
