Paul O'Brien from Modaco apparently got word that HTC disabled the update servers. Made to be going back on today, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

It's pretty annoying. Can't change CID yet ,so don't think getting a stock rom is even a choice.

Just double checked and it is definatly 1.12.161.17 for Vodafone. I get a replacement phone on Thursday due to complaining about the speaker grill not sitting flush so I will check this when it arrives.

Operator variants I guess.

Am I right in thinking once we are able to change the CID we can flash a stock ROM?

All branded ROMs will have branded CID's which means that all updates come from carriers and not from HTC themselves, we need S-Off. Once we do, we can do anything on the phone.

That's a little misunderstanding, all roms with different cids are stock roms. You probably mean non bloated with carrier apps.

S-off is not necessary, just an unlocked bootloader is enough. Then you can install any rom you want, even use a stock backup from a wwe cid. But you can't update with that, that's the only thing.
