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

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.

By stock I meant a non carrier ROM. Should have been clearer.

What's WWE? And what is this S-OFF I keep seeing mentioned? I'm a newcomer to HTC! I just left Samsung's world.

WWE roms are usually considered carrier free (world wide english) so all bloat it gone, s-off means security off....with s-off we are able to :

flash kernels from the recovery
flash recoveries from within the OS (with commands)

and it should enable us the option to change the unlocked bootloader status to locked (as it usually is when you get it, this was not the case on the htc one x btw)

some points of use there, and there will probably be some more that i am forgetting now...

EDIT :

- change the cid
- install any ruu we like
- downgrade and upgrade the hboot with ease

Did you get it from EE directly? I thought the EE handsets were branded?
