by CID unlocking your device the value of the CID is changed to SuperCID . This allows the flashing of ANY ROM to the device regardless of the carrier and also unlocks the read/write capability of the Ext_ROM..
CID lock: the phone software can only be modified/upgraded with another version for the same CID. I think it stands for Country ID; this means that a phone with French Windows Mobile can only accept an upgrade of French Windows Mobile. It is probably required by Microsoft to license the software to OEMs to avoid piracy (I suppose). HTC uses the CID also to distinguish their various distribution channels, so a DOPOD branded device and an HTC branded device have different CIDs. A phone that is not locked to any country version or to any distribution channel has a SuperCID and will accept all WM software whatever the language, etc. Your phone is probably CID-locked.
