    Stupid people for doing things with their phones they shouldn't have been. No sympathy here!

    Erm no? If you significantly alter the ROM, you break the update process.

    The issue here is that the 3rd party update tool didn't include a revert back function. So you could blame the 3rd parties I suppose?

    Or just fandroid on....

    Im currently on windows 6.5 with my HD2 so not an Android fanboy. What I thought it meant was that custom roms etc could not be used or any other things from xdev.

    I shifted from winmo to android earlier in the year, have to say android feals more like winmo with a flashy front end the more I use it. And there are also plenty of android phones that are a bitch to update to later roms.
