The original ilegal release of the 2003 ROM contained all the files you needed.

As for the drawback with 2003.
It is less stable and uses more memory than the original 2002 ROM.
Unless you specifically want to use the limited ammount of .net applications on the phone then the 2003 update is not really worth it and most people who do update either go back to 2002 or wish they could do, but that requires another dodgy ROM as there are no official updates for the MPX200 (dispite one Russian site claiming to sell an "official version")

Basically yes, Motorola, Orange and AT&T etc have unfortunately never released an official update of any kind for the MPX200 to the general public.

I installed WM 2003 on my MPx 200. But after a few days it started giving me problems with battery. It would discharge in just 4 hours!!!
So I switched back to WM 2002

maybe you did not do a hard reset with a fully charge battery, which will cuase you to have poor battery life.

I am considering the "upgrade" to WM 2003 but am concerned about being able to go back to WM 2002 in case of problems with WM 2003. How were you able to switch back to WM 2002?

I'm not sure about the cartman powermoto logo (it might be mostly on the Orange 200s; I have the AT&T/Cingular one), but I know that the Extended Rom by M.S. start is normal on startup.

The Cartman logo was the first hacked 2003 rom to be released.

There is more than one 2002 ROM out there, i have tried 2 different versions:

1.0.12.63
1.0.52.90

Both have NO operator settings or logo's. SO you'll sadly never get back to the original settings that came with the handset.

There are actually quite a few 2002 roms around, but this only adds to more possible problems and bugs being entered in to the system and some can be possibly fatal for the phone.
Remember none of them have gone through the proper testing.

Hi,
I've upgraded my mpx200 to 2003 and its superb :lol: it's fast and far more stable than 2002.
About short battery life. I had the same issue. I figured out that the IR beam was set to recieve all the time after upgrade :( I turned it off and battery lasts for about 4 days

EDIT please read the site rules before posting
