Tested by many, worked for most of them!
Bit the bullet and went for it! Success.
Got fed up with waiting around for Micro$oft and HTC to finish d!cking around deciding if they are going to release this stuff or not. It seems they can't even decide through their own official website announcements what's going on, and both seem to contradict each other. HTC need a big lesson on customer relations, and responding positively, and keeping former promises about updates, or many of us long term HTCers are likely to move to the Nokia side of the Force.
Anyway, moving on from the corporate politics...
Ran this on a factory-supplied unlocked HTC Titan X310e, and it worked an absolute treat... 25 minutes of loading various updates, but no problems noted thus far. The only thing I did notice was the HTC hub icon not acting in live mode in either large or medium tile size (just goes dark). Maybe that's just a refresh issue, but not really bothered - it's only an icon to launch the real app.
Resized it small fort he HTC logo, so I know what it does if I need it.
It will ask you to install the Dev Kit first (5 minutes tops) and that installs all automatic, then relaunch 7-8er, choose language pack (be careful to scroll down the full list if you want English UK), and just watch it update. Remember to enter your PIN after it reboots after each incremental upload so the next stage can run.
