Yup it's true.

I upgraded my M700 to WM6. It now also has the HTC Touch homescreen Plugin. Works great no major Issues.

Jus make sure you get a Orange WM5 ROM to restore your M700 if things go wrong.

Do you have the "idiots guide" on how to do this? I have a technical background, just never fiddled with my phone ROM before.

It's quite easy,

1. Establish an ActiveSync connection with your phone through USB.

2. Run "ROMUpdateUtility.exe" - this should be in the downloaded and unzipped folder

3. Follow the onscreen instructions and that's pretty much it!

I've ran the RomUpdateUtility.exe and it tries to load a ROM version lower than my current version. I've asked on another thread if this is ok, but got no reply.

OK, for all of you that want an opinion, I did it on the weekend, I put WM6 on my Trinity. ALL my previous applications that I had with WM5 work, like Worms, Age Of Empire, Fizz Traveller, Audible, SPB Diary/Plus, Cameraware, TOMTOM etc etc. Haven't put SKYPE yet, but will shortly.

I used this WM6 ROM version click here Do exactly what is says on the first post and most ignore the first 30 pages of posts since they all talk about bits and bobs from previous versions of the ROM. The new one sorted all the little bugs.

Anyway, it took me 1 hour and no hickups. I firstly ran the phone unlocker/supercid update just in case, added bit of security click here, then I just download the three pieces of software, ran the ROMUpdate.exe of each one in turn and then hey presto, you'll have a stable working WM6. On one of the ROMUpdate.exe programmes I had a stuck bootloader screen on the phone and an error code on my PC, just relaunch the ROMUpdate.exe even though activesync is not green and the bootloader screen is still on your phone.

I did it because I could and not for any additional programmes or anything, there is really not that much difference to be honest.

If you have any questions (not too technical) I be happy to help.

If it all goes pear shaped (unlikely though) please DO NOT hold me responsible.
