Is it worth collating the oem get_identifier_token calls and responses? As there may be an obvious correlation whereby HTVDev can be bypassed or the process simplified.

Question (and I know it's probably been discussed elsewhere, but clearly I've only just noticed it), with this issue with not being able to enable mass storage...does this mean that once I've chosen a particular ROM, placed it onto SD and unlocked/flashed recovery, I won't be able to flash another different ROM? Can I not just flash through fastboot??

If the dev has released a set of fastboot images then you can install them through fastboot.
You can change roms as you still have USB mode in the custom Rom you have, the only real problem comes if you format your system partition and then realise you don't have a Rom to install on the sdcard, at this point you can't get to a position where you can put a new zip on so you would have to do the ruu and start from scratch

It's only when in the recovery that USB doesn't work, as soon as you flash your new Rom and boot it you can use USB as normal

It's highly unlikely that we will be able to learn anything by the identifier tokens, if anything is to be learned it would be finding what link your own identifier token has to the unlock_code.bin that they send you in the email, but we will probably never know

Same error Message for me, but it seems to be an error by HTCdevs Email sending like you see, i done same with my Sensation XL before 2 months and it works. Surely HTCdevs have any issues by sending mails from their system! Hope thats not generally when ONE X has Software: 1.26.401.2

But cool TUT! I`m impressed!

How do you completely power down One x?

I used to be able to do a complete power down by pulling the battery out, but cannot do this on One x.
