Hi people, I had a Desire HD on contract, direct from Orange. Luckily for me it was unbranded with no bloatware whatsoever, fast forward a couple of months, the phone developed a fault and was replaced with no arguments by Orange. Great I thought, till it arrived. It is absolutely crammed with all the Orange crap which on investigation can only be removed via the Goldcard -> downgrade method. It is currently sat on software version 188.8.131.52 and I know it needs to be rolled back to 1.32.405.6 software to remove branding and in future allow root. I have created the goldcard without too much hassle and now gone onto the following process: Problem I have is I can't get the "#" it just constantly throws up the $ sign. I tried to continue with flashing the older software anyway via recovery mode but it just throws up "Main version is older". So does anyone have any suggestions or an idiots walkthrough? Thanks in advance people.
