You need to use MMC2 while creating the goldcard as that is the ext SD card.

All you have to do is get the signed RUU zip file and rename it to and put that on the goldcard SD card and boot to hboot.

hboot should check the the file and ask to flash it :D

Im writing a guide for this now sould be up after iv confirmed it working

isn't USB error to do with drivers? install the latest htc sync that came with the phones memory card and then run the RUU

is there any real reason to create goldcard of any major use i.e. will this help me to gain information i can pass on to help with perma root on vision. i have looked into goldcard creation a lot since receiving my DHD but cannot see what i can do with the goldcard. Confused if this helps toward root.

am a knoob

Won't help the people who are working on rooting the DHD, but it lets you debrand your phone if you have a carrier specific branded version by flashing a signed unbranded ROM.

In the future it might be necessary to root your phone, but not yet... crossing fingers here.

Does anyone know what is done by Viper to actually create the GoldCard image?

I've been looking at the GoldCard method this week, threw together a nice AJAX CID reverser which flips the digits and replaces the first two with 00, but would like to know about the image side now.

Hi there guys I don't own the Desire HD yet, but am very interested in it.

I'm an Android newb. I'm likely going to purchase a UK Vodafone branded Desire HD but would like to immediately debrand it to essentially make it a stock HTC version.

Is this possible?

If so, is the method you've described in the previous posts, the way to do it? i.e. create a Goldcard in the way described on the Modaco website (these instructions appear to be for the Desire, not the Desire HD - does this matter?)

I have had a Voda branded Nokia N95 8GB for 3 years but changed the product code and installed a standard Nokia firmware - I'd like to do the same with my Desire HD (when I get it).

Hopefully that all made sense,

Any help appreciated.
