I want to do it as well, and I'm a complete WP7 hacking noob. I've rooted Android, so that's some experience there with this sort of thing. I did the Preware thing on webOS, which takes no effort at all. But man, this stuff looks tough. I don't even know where to start.
I do recall a post on the front page of WP Central regarding some users who updated to 8107 before the carrier/handset maker released the update. I think some of those people ran into trouble with the radio. I don't recall.

Bell pushed it out a while back... Despite lack of intent to carry devices, they have been Johnny-on-the-spot with the updates. I was nervous in this regard when they termed the hd7 EOL 2 months after I got it... Also: 8107 combines the accuracy of Nodo with the predictive/corrective speed and fluidity of mango! And, for me at least, solved the disappearing keyboard!

I found someone on XDA wanting to do this very thing here:
[Q] HTC HD7 Unlock and Install Custom ROMS help?! - xda-developers
I went through and just completed the update last night on my T-MO US HD7. I ended up using the Y cable method. If you end up making your own cable make sure you get the connections tight. I just wrapped the connections around each other without soldering or electric tape and thought I half bricked my device when doing the goldcard install. I then tightened up one of the connections and it worked like a charm.
