Someone smarter than myself theorized in one of the several forums I visit that Deepfish was never intended to be released by that name. Deepfish was just a means to test some features to later be incorporated into pocket IE, much like in Windows Mobile 6.1, which is what I am hoping (quite possibly in vain) is what will be incorporated into the Shadow update whenever it is released.


Deepfish is/was just a codename just like Longhorn, and it is/was to test future PIE features.

OMG it's available!

http://www.t-mobileshadow.com/

Version 1.11.531.5

This software release includes:

1. Five free ring tones from popular movies and musicians.
2. Two free full length songs.
3. An assortment of free phone wall paper images.
4. Audio Postcard, a fun new myFaves connecting experience.
5. Enhanced myFaves and menu graphics.
6. Improved text entry experience.

I'm hoping it includes some bugfixes as well, although they aren't listed.

Good god, I'm not going to bother. Oh well, maybe this release can help someone cook up a real upgrade?

C'mon, no one is willing to bric... uh, enhance their shadow for the sake of the community? :)

All these enhancements are things you should be able to just download so I bet tmo is using them as a carrot to get users to download the upgrade to fix the real issues. The rom file (ruu_signed.nbh) is dated 1/28/2008.

Just finished updating. Went without any hitches. Now back to customizing and reinstalling programs. Good thing I've had lots of practice with my SDA and WM6.

The BIGGEST thing I was looking for was the splitting of Text/Multimedia messages into separate categories. I personally like that better. No change in that here. The pics are OK, and this is your dream ROM if you're a fan of Avril Lavigne or Dave Mathews Band (one song each included).

Still playing with it... Maybe others can chime in as they find things.

I suspect the text input enhancement is related to the issue where you couldn't set something other than XT9 as the default input.

I wonder if they updated the email setup wizard to use gmail imap instead of pop3.

Can't wait to brick my shadow tonight! :) I had already hard-reset it a few weeks ago since I was getting the screen-won't-turn-off and continuous-searching-for-signal issues.

I really hope this update doesn't interfere with using t-zones.

Yep. Hard reset, and still nothing. No "E" to tell me what coverage I have. But when I access the GPRS network, then I see the little E by the signal strength bars.

c, 123The only real diffrence I have noticed so far is that the "e" icon is finally gone, and that when writing a text message there is a menu choice of writing options. They are: t9 English, abc, 123, symbols, Language, t9 My Words, t9 settings, and about t9. I could do with out the stupid music and backgrounds and I do nothave my favs so not sure what improvements are made to that.

Those of you who have already upgraded:

Check your registry and see if HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\RIL\EnableDifferGprsEdgeIcon is set to 1.

I haven't upgraded yet and I can confirm that the original ROM has this value set to 1. If yours is 0, try changing it to 1 and reboot your phone.

Let me know if this works.

Edit: In case the value isn't there by default, it is a DWORD value.

It is set to 1 but still not "E" in the iconbar.

Did the upgrade. Here is what I see so far:

about:
CE OS 5.2.1711 build 18165.0.5.0 -> 5.2.1711 build 18170.0.5.1
Radio: 4.1.13.47_03.04.90 -> 4.1.13.56_03.17.90
Ril Version 2.002 -> no change
CE Rom Update Versions: 5.2.1711.18165 -> 5.2.1711.18170

Device Information:
Rom Version 1.03.531.4 -> 1.11.531.5

In messaging:
added: audio postcards
email setup: right-softkey has 'hide setup' to make the email setup section go away. Yes!

Internet:
added: Driving Instructions (via windows live app)

Config:
Task Manager icon changed and renamed to 'Improve Performance'. Still go to the same task manager as before.
Manage connections: 'on' icons have a glow look to them so it's easier to see what's on and off.

Noticed that the device seems more aggressive in dimming the backlight. Went to power management and noticed this change:
Display Timeout on Battery 10, 25*, 30, 1 min, ...
25 is the default. I think the lowest before was 30.

Also noticed that in the Slide and Keylock section:
Hang up mode: close keyboard or End key
I believe the previous default was 'End key'

Camera is in portrait mode with portrait interface. Yes! Not sure if I can re-enable the landscape interface. Camera software version: 5.3 (build 29864) copyright 2000-2008. Doesn't seem to matter if I press the camera button with the slider opened or closed.

XT9 is renamed to T9 English.

That's all for now. So it's not just a slap on of some ringtones and sounds. The os and radio firmware is newer.
