Thank's for the descriptive guide. I've successfully upgraded to wm 6 and am writing this post from my t-mobile sda! If anyone runs into formatting problems... try removing the minisd card and then running the format command. Thanks again!

Many people have problem formatting because they did not use the proper case when typing the command, it must be exactly 'format BINFS', the f must be small, BINFS must be all in upper case

speaking of, NICE GUIDE!, just upgraded my cingular 2125 using it, WM6 is so much nicer, hell, even the splashscreens are SO much more apealing than the cingular WM5 ones... enough reason alone to switch.

thanks for the awesome guide.

Before I go and do this to my C600, is it easy enough to flash it back to WM5 with the operator's ROM?

if im not mistaken, you just need to perform a hard reset and then run the WM5 update as usual

I have a Cingular 2125 and am interested in upgrading to WM6 but I wanted to make sure before I did that the SlingPlayer installs successfully on it. Does anyone have any experience with that? Also, are there any bugs that I should know about using it on AT&T's network?

Earlier posts in this thread say that the technique works with the HTC Faraday (Cingular 2125) ... I presume that the way to do it is to follow the instructions for the HTC Tornado? Can anyone confirm that?

Also, what important settings will I lose and need to re-enter? I know I'll lose Exchange server synch settings, but I know how to re-enter those. I know I'll lose contacts, email, etc.; no biggie there because I'll just fetch it all again from the Exchange server. But what about the various settings (about which I know absolutely nothing) that tell the phone how to connect to the ATT network? Are those settings safely located on the SIM? Or will I need to re-enter them?

[edit] Okay, I went ahead and did it. For anyone else who is wondering: yes, you follow exactly the directions for HTC Tornado. No, you will not lose your phone network settings (I guess they're on the SIM). Yes, you will lose your data network settings; I found instructions for re-entering AT&T settings here. Nitro's WM6 rocks; I can't wait for a stable WM6.1 to try!! [/edit]
