Default Desire 816 united States

I see that Asia and Europe has gotten their versions, but has anyone heard any news about the 816 coming to the states? I am really interested and would like to know how I can get my hands on one.

Yes I do unlocked my bootloader and rooted but kept it S-On....I manage to tried kingsense custom rom but since it's only
on Sense 5.5 and it has some Chinese module, I decided to go back to stock (Sense 6.0) and manage to applied OTA update.

How did you unlock and root. Via HTCdev I am not able to unlock. Tried model 'all other supported device's, 'htc one' (m7) and 'htc desire*' but all unsuccessful. Could you help me out. BTW I've already version 1.29.708.1 with hboot 3.18 and sense 6

Unlocked via HTCdev I used M7 as my HTC model and followed the rest of the instructions till successfully unlock my bootloader.
For rooting I tried the HTC desire 816 sense 5.5 rooting zip and it works. I used this http://xperiahtcrootingrom.com/root-...re-816/...hope it work also for you.... I also have the 1.29.708.1 version
