    I could not wait. I found myself over at XDA and just had to jump on. New Start screen, internet sharing, fixed sms limit and keyboard bug, Got nokia apps, Who else out there installed a custom ROM for the Arrive?

    Just to make sure I said it correctly, this is AWESOME :-)

    This is awesome. Any instructions? Possible to reboot with stock ROM at a later time? Does tethering work OK?

    The screenshot can be taken by pressing Power & Home key together. Its inbuilt in WP8....

    Sorry I meant instructions for flashing the ROM. Never done it before.

    Sorry I meant instructions for flashing the ROM. Never done it before.
    I have flashed ROMS before on my TP2 and it is always USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I have never flashed my Arrive and I did about a good 2 hours of reading before I started. I am also a developer so that helped as well. That being said once I understood directions it was a straightforward process.

    The ROM i used was [ROM] HTC 7 Pro 7.8 & HTC Arrive 7.8 Sianto Edition AL [ROM] HTC 7 Pro 7.8 & HTC Arrive 7.8 Sianto Edition AL - xda-developers

    But I started reading the entire HTC 7 Pro 7.8 & HTC Arrive catagory.
    I also read this thread fully before attempting anything HTC Arrive Hacking Guide - xda-developers.

    Once again it is use at your own risk but I found the process to be extremely easy. Once done the phone started off in factory reset mode, I changed my country, location, language, changed my accent, installed my apps everything is working fine except xbox tile no longer live(not a biggie for me), couple of apps have different icons or tiles, and when searching in BING for an address it does not pull up the maps with the correct information as often anymore, but I HAVE NOKIA maps/drive so its a good tradeoff
