..and a round of applause goes to Hemi from xda-developers for cooking up a WM6 ROM for the XV6700/PPC6700. I have been drooling, for some time now, at the new PDA phones with WM6 (cross bow) installed and held onto the hope that someone would make this OS available for my $400-new-from-Verizon-phone. Sure, it’s a cooked ROM, but I took the risk before getting to old age before Verizon ever released a official version for my unit.
So far I am enjoying:
- Faster response from the phone
- Less reboots
- HTML formatted emails
- Built in software, like WMODEM using it now to write this post).
- Better connection manager
- ..and a host of fixes that were just annoying in WM5.
For those of you shy to install a cooked ROM for fear of turning your device into an expensive paper weight – trust me, Hemi did a great job with this build, and as long as you follow his easy instructions you cannot go wrong.
