It would be nice if other UK users could give some infor here too so maybe we can compile a complete list of why, why nots ?
I installed the imate smartphone2 rom on my UK SPV E200. It was very quick and painless following the instructions from another thread here.
I have also flashed back to the latest Orange ROM and then back again to the imate one - I came to my senses.
So far, with the imate rom:
I am able specify SMS Delivery report in the settings - ie I don`t have to select it every time I send an SMS!! <lovely>
Also, my video recorder is usable again. I have perfect audio and what seems to be smoother, faster video.
There are some major improvements on the T9 front - I will cover these in a later post. Suffuce to say that SMS and messaging functions are now quicker and easier to use.
I think a few new apps have appeard - IA File Manager for one.
The phone is definately faster and more responsive too. I know you usually experience and increase after a hard reset but this is way beyond that.
On the downside, I`ve lost the Orange Homescreen and hav to make do with the MS One until I figure out how to get the Orange one loaded.
All the communications settings are now blank. I`m rebuilding this slowly but I know there is somewhere on THIS site where you can do this easily.
Another drag is that I will have to flash back to the Orange ROM if I need a care replacement.
So over to anyone else who has experience with this ROM on a UK E200.
I`d also like to hear from anyone who can help me out with the homescreen or setting thing?
