Mine was a sucessfull install following the instructions of the PDF. You may want to clearly Note in your opening messages that this is for Verizon users ONLY... (before you get peppered with "Is it for Verizon?").



Is this for Verizon users ONLY?


Kidding, but not really :excl: I have a verizon Omnia, flashed over to metro PCS. I was wondering if this would make me lost my settings on metro?


Does anyone happen to know? My phone has already been houdini flashed.

Damn I am all tingly at the thought of a cooked rom with working GPS... knew it would happen soon!

Quick question about this. Would updating the rom with this void any warranties with verizon? Like if i planned on switching my phone out before the thirty days of owning it?


Most likely if you flash now and need to update, return or talk to tech guys for any fix, yes this would be a good time for them to tell you you have voided it's warranty. This is NOT an official ROM as we arrived at it through a rather circuitous unofficial channel. If you screw it up or in some other way have issues with the phone after updating your best bet is to then wait it out till the official ROM arrives through VZW and flash with that ROM. That way you will have an official ROM loaded when you go to them about it being hashed and they will have no issues then.

I wouldn't do it yet. Not until we can get an original ROM to go back to if it does mess things up.

Figured so. Not sure yet if i am going to keep the phone, so i will wait for any official roms to come out before i update. I just hope it would be within the next 2 weeks. I have had it for about a week now.



.net 2.0 is still the default according to the registry. Installing 3.5 and the reg hack now.

Yes, you will lose all your settings. The only thing I would recommend restoring from backups are contacts, email accounts, etc. This ROM does not have GPS unlocked yet, but that is something that will be worked on feverishly for the next week, lol.. Possibly a WinMo 6.5 cooked rom to come in the next couple weeks, too :excl:

As of right now, its just a working i910 ROM update that has some new features, and will allow us to start trying to cook up new roms.. Hopefully unlock GPS in the next couple weeks..

I would LOVE to have 6.5 over the GPS... I use an external BT GPS right now so that would be a better wish for me. But both would just be sugar!

So since a metro flash goes into NV ram would it be overridden by this? I don't know if anyone knows how metro uses houdini to change network settings to use a normal verizon phone on Metro PCS.... So its not like a normal setting, its like prl and such.... Winmo 6.5 sounds juicy :excl: Is it allot better than 6.1?


Thanks,sorry for the noobness here ; )

Going from 6.1 to 6.5 is like going from Win2000 to Windows 7 :excl:

Those of you who have gotten the GPS working, did you have to do anything besides flash the new firmware with the instructions in the PDF file?

Also, can anyone who has successfully updated their Omnia confirm that the following MD5SUM is correct:

664555509f821556775dc6f9222f4502 *i910WM6.1.REV10.CC20.VZW.img

Well wait a minute now, when this firmware first came out, why were people saying that the GPS was still locked? Has something changed on Verizon's side?
