Alan, I know a guy who's gone the other way. He took his Orange SPV M5000 (HTC Universal) and flashed it with O2's ROMs and it worked. I don't think he had much trouble doing it. I'm not 100% sure it won't brick your device, but I can't guarantee it. The likelyhood is, even if it didn't work, you could just flash it back to O2 with O2s ROMs.

If i were you, id head over to www.xda-developers.com, and check the Wiki.

Theres few good cooked ROMs available , probably better then the original Orange or O2 ROMs. ( sorry mods if im not allowd to say this, please delete )

i sugjest you check for Ranjus 7.6 in the Universal Mobile 6 section.

Cant stress this enough : Read The WiKi .

hope that hepls ya :-)

One post to look at regarding ROM change and also switching to the unofficial WM6 can be found HERE

As for games some developers do VGA resolutions, but other will give you a black border but the screen quality is still better :D

Don't forget any ROM flashing is done at the users own risk, most of the time it is safe and easy to do (depending on the ROM) but any problems like power or data interruptions can kill a device.
