    Is it possible? People are doing it with the Nokia phones, so I should be able to do it with HTC?

    I don't know of a user-accessible server that HTC puts the updates on like Nokia does. Thats the only reason Lumia owners can, is because they can download the roms from Nokia. And no I don't think you can use a Nokia rom

    What's the risk of trying to use Nokia ROMs? Bricking?

    If you capture the address that one of the unlocked, or most preferably one of the AT&T 8X devices is downloading from, then you could probably do it. But you'd need a tool to flash it. I have no idea how the updates are sent over the air, whether they are in cab format or not. But it is certainly possible. If there is a lack of carriers pushing the update to the 8x. But then again, Microsoft also has servers that you can get the update files from I believe but they aren't widely known.

    I'll call anyone who says you have to flash using a Y cable/Gold Card method an *****.

    I still have a gold card from WP7. I don't want to risk flashing a Nokia rom, so I'll look into getting 8x CABs and a tool somewhere...

    Flashing an update doesn't require anything but a simple tool on a computer and a microusb cable.

    There are no tools available to flash a rom to an HTC phone.

    Nokia makes their own software to be able to do so, and they also put custom software on their phones to allow you to do this.

    this wouldn't even require flashing the rom anyway, but rather forcing the update. I doubt flashing and forcing an update are the same.
