While it's true there's no version of MSN (or Terminal Services Client) installed by default, I managed to Google around and get a copy of Windows Live Messenger for PPC (Emoticons and File transfers finally! ;) ) and an updated version of the TSC called "WM6 Remote Desktop" which gives you the new options of 16-bit color, a proper disconnect button (no more opening the task manager and going Shut Down -> Disconnect), and no scrollbars! There's a little box in the bottom right hand corner you can scroll around with your stylus instead. (And no, it doesn't hide the sys tray on the remote PC - you can scroll down past it to make it fully visible).

Just needs a little clever thinking with Google and you're set.

Just finished installing this, and it's not great (BIG understatement)

No HTC Home
Old version of X-button (no today icon)
Old style comm manager and dialpad
No messenger (no surprise there though)
ClearVue PDF instead of Adobe Reader LE
Horrible 'extended' system tray

If you do install this soft-reset before the customisation kicks in and put your operator settings in manually


Is there anyway of removing/hiding the extended system tray? i cannot seem to find a way!

I did a hard-reset then a soft-reset before the *awful* customisation kicked in

put the network settings in manually and it's soooo much better

why bother with manually? Download the T-Mobile Settings (fixed).cab from xda-developers and install it manually after the hard reset.

One problem that used to exist after not loading the ExtROM with the WM5 ROM shipped with the device was that dial tones didn't work when you phoned a call centre. Can you confirm that you are able to use phone services that require key tones?

Or better still theres an app on HTC E-club you can use, but of course not everyone knows about, or has, these things so for clarity I said manually ;)

I do have one question about the WM6 ROM though... how the heck do I get it to work as a modem with XP now :/

I've tried using the Internet Connection Sharing but when I go to connect, it just throws an error on the PPC.

Come back Wireless Modem app, all is forgiven!

Thanks for posting the download link. I flashed my Vario to WM6, and all went swimmingly......one thing is REALLY peeing me off though. I'm posting in the hope someone with more brains/time has a fix.

To write new text message in WM5 was easy - toggle through Outlook/email/SMS using the Messaging button then hit New (left softkey) . Maximum 3 clicks. Easy as.

Since flashing to WM6 I toggle through Outlook/email/SMS&MMS (they're lumped in together now) as before. Left softkey is now 'Delete' instead of 'New' so I have to select Menu>New using right softkey then scroll to select SMS using wheel or dial. That's 3 clicks on the Messaging button, 2 on the softkey then one on wheel/dial. Nasty!

Is this the same with everyone's install of WM6 or can I fix it? I'll throw it against the wall if I have to to do that every time I want to write a text.

Cheers
DF

Well when I try to download it using:

http://member.htc.co...Step1-TMuk.aspx

With my serial, it doesn't do anything... which is annoying. Anyone else had this issue?

The Official version contains the same rom file: RUU_Hermes_TMO_UK_3.60.110.4_6275_1.50.00.00_108_Ship.exe

There are some other files in the zip as well including a CAB file to stop problems with MobileTV: "no audio can be heard or the video can get stucked." (their words not mine)

The pdf manual says that the new rom includes the F-Secure antivirus software, but I dont recall having that when I installed from the link in the first of this thread.

Any ideas whether I could upgrade to the Officical rom from the previous one (or indeed if there is any point)?

I would be interested to see if the comm manager is still as ugly

I've downloaded it. I would install now (over the previous "official" from my post at the start of the thread) but I can't risk the phone with anything for a few days as my wife is expecting our first any time now....

Installed the WM6 ROM (found via navigating the UK site).

Startin to wish i hadn't :S It's sluggish and gettin on my tits.

Seriously considering the Hard reset and skipping the ExtROM install, but where do i get the operator settings from? and will skipping the ExtROM installer leave more of the WM6 features intact?

Where can I get Windows Live Messenger from and the WM6 Remote Desktop?



Thanks in advance,
Mike

Do it, its much better.

Create an account with HTC E-Club, then browse the downloads for P3600; there you will find a Network settings wizard to configure your connections.

To replace messenger and Remote Desktop you need to get Googling!

search for WM6 RDP-Finster.cab and wlm duttythroy :(
