The sad news was that this leaked ROM would only work for Dell Streak handsets in UK, and not for the US handsets.

Nevertheless, the modding community did not lose hope and have found a workaround to flash this UK ROM on a US Dell Streak. However, users need to root their phone before proceeding with this process. Luckily there is an application call Universal Androot which will make the job of rooting the phone a lot easier. Also flashing this Android 2.1 ROM will wipe your Dell Streak clean so users are recommended to make a backup of their data.
