Will the method that is used to change the CID of the DNA in order for the HTCDev site to unlock the device have any ill consequences pertaining to future development in Android (i.e. Google Play recognizing the device)?

I'm sure if there were issues, this forum would have exploded. I unlocked/rooted/etc yesterday and was able to get all of my stuff from the play store with no problems.

There is no way of knowing this. I contemplated the possibility of a later exploit that would not require this, but there is no way of knowing, and the liklihood of that coming anytime soon is low, since it has already been done, why do it again unless you have to? It probably will not have any ill consequences but other than guessing, there is no way of telling. We can just hope for the best.

My biggest concern would be device authentication for my Play Music. After making this change Google Play recognizes it as the same device and I can stream my music still.

I did the Unlock and root....Google Play working fine for me. I believe most everything is tied to your google account vs. your phone id/info.

It still looks at one of the phones ids but obviously not the CID.

This has got me curious...Since it is web/cloud based, and I can pull it up on any device I'm logged in on, why would it look at a phone's id?

Google Music allows 10 devices to stream music. That's why it's looking for an ID.
