I have been on this forum many years but now I have to restart again: I switched to the Desire S, over from good ol' windows.. :P
I am confused by all the posts and just need a quick answer so I can start contributing here. I bought a Hong Kong Desire S in Beijing, it is S-OFF (I checked) and has some ROM on it which contains a lot of preinstalled stuff. Now I would like to switch to a pure, clean stock ROM.
Question 1: is there a clean, official ROM I can flash on the phone which will be updated over the air by Google/HTC legally, or will I need to do the update (as soon as there is a new Android version) from now on myself?
Question 2: IF I flash, do I need to care which ROM I use or can I flash in there whatever I want? Like, try a Europe ROM first, then a US ROM and maybe an Asian one afterwards? Will they all work, despite my phone being from Hong Kong?
Question 3: will the phone keep being S-OFF even after flashing?
I am aware that there are all the answers out there somewhere if I search long enough, but I would really appreciate if you could be so nice once and give me short answer here
thanks a lot!!
