Just a comment on that . The majority of help i broke my phone posts on here are 99% darkys rom so as they say go figure .
Experienced user try it you know how to recover and that goes for any rom .
Dont know what you are doing then you need to read and learn .

If you change your product code it will update only if their is an update from that network .

First step would be to get the correct product code .
EG O2 uk has an update to 2,2
A change your product code and update to 2.2 but you have invalidated your warranty .

Can you not go to your network for the product upgrade that path one your phone remains under warranty .

Path two rootfix >> lag fix >product change > flashing phone .Your warranty no longer valid you pay for all repairs .
