Okay, so I've had limited success. I flashed 188.8.131.52 and then installed ARHD 82, it got out of the boot loop, starts up and gets up to the lockscreen. However once I swipe up to unlock the phone shows a white background with the HTC logo then reboots. I'm able to do things like change volume and take screenshots over this logo which is odd. Have googled for a solution but I'm not having much luck unfortunately. This might be the best option for me, sorry for being dense but I'm not familiar with how to install these kind of files? Is it the same as installing a recovery with Fastboot flash recovery etc? Edit edit edit: I decided to install the rom again, this time it worked and was successful! Just for future reference though it would be useful to know how to install the Telstra CWM however. Thanks Edit Edit Edit Edit I got S-OFF via the sunshine exploit I followed this guide at this link to change to GPE, changed my CID to GOOGL001 etc http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2358781 I've flashed & installed the 4.4.2 RUU successfuly. I'm now downloading the stock recovery and installing that so I can receive OTA's.
