New Orange ROM

Hi,

Under the thread Dade's Review, there are a few replies mentioning that Orange are now shipping the M2000's with a new ROM thats includes WMP10, updated BT and Radio versions.

I called Orange and they told me to check the website. I told them there is nothing on their website, so the chap went and checked with another dept, and told me that a new ROM will be coming shortly.

Think this is true or a bluff?

I have received a replacement Orange SPV M2000 today and it is still running with WMP9 :|

But maybe new M2000's are coming out with WMP10, I hope so and I hope they release an update for us soon.

Just got a new M2000 from Orange. And its still WMP10 and the 'old' ROM on there.

I would be very surprised if O decided to update the ROM.

Dade,

Just to clarify:

Do you mean your new m2000 is using Windows Media Player 10 instead of 9, but is running with an old operator ROM?

My bad! I meant to say that my new M2000 is WMP9 not 10. Sorry about that!

In Windows Media Player (not the playlist/library but the player itself) choose Menu / About and tell us what it says...

Hi,

Is this possibe.........

If someone used Sprite Backup from a clean i.e out of the box condition, then uploaded their backup file to a website - would another M2000 owner be able to upgrade their phone if they restored it?

I guess that's good news - maybe we'll see a 1.40 ROM upgrade eventually then. I wish Orange were a bit quicker off the mark though; they generally seem months behind other operators with their upgrades, even when like now they've obviously got the thing to release if they wanted to :|

Just checked the orange UK site again, not there yet...

I have an O2 XDA IIs for 6 days now. I'm hoping for an update to 1.4 from O2. I suppose I could try the O2 Asia ROM, but this would, no doubt, invalidate my insurance, if my phone should break etc. (Or would they find out?). By the looks of things only 1 person here has tried that ROM on their M2000. What are you guys doing? Upgrading to one of the other operator ROMs or waiting for an update from your own UK operator?

I'm waiting personally; my phone would make a v ugly and expensive paperweight if i got it wrong with an update a-la-xda developers, tho i haven't actually heard anyone say they irretrievable broke theirs yet.

Phoned Orange and asked about the new ROM being supplied on new M2000's and where I could go to get the download as I am used to the process having had an SPV classic, E100 & E200 - but after much sending from one department to another I still got nowhere! One guy even said that there are no plans to release a ROM update for the M2000 and that if there was nothing wrong with the phone why would I want to update anyway - DUH!?!?!?

@pride429: not surprised at all I'm afraid. Unlike Orange's Smartphones the Pocket PC phones haven't been very well supported with updates, and that's saying something!

Hi All,

I originally had a m2000 with wm10 on it, but had problems with not being able to hear people on the other end, Orange kindly changed it.... but with one that had wm9 on it.... when i rang them about it they said that no m2000 has EVER been shipped with wm10!! I think a very strongly worded e-mail is going to Orange today!!! The Lying B@star@s!!!!!

U might be in luck... I recently discovered there IS one rom available online which I believe should be the more recent of the two. It's on the Orange business site.

Follow the following link to get to the official download page (why on earth they didn't put it in the personal M2000 section I don't know) here or goto www.business.orange.co.uk and navigate to the SPV M2000 page. The latest software update is linked to there...

Let us know if it does include WMP10...
