Happy to be here, as a previous owner of an htc device, I parallel this thread to the amazing xda-developers.
Now I got my B7610 from online shop, came from Germany-voda branding on winmo 6.1.
A couple of days before I upgraded to 6.5 flashing secany's ROM (posted 23 December). My experience up to now:
- My qwertz hw keyboard corresponds to qwerty. No big deal here (y<->z), since I am running language with greek characters.
- The vodafone branding was removed (O2 instead, but customizable)).
- Not noticeable change in speed, haptic feedback, memory.
- Very welcome sw additions, like widget manager-widget (for touchwiz), unlocking of larger video-recorder resolution (D1?).
- x-button is not very cooperative with some programs like Opera(!), Acrobat Reader 2.0, or even somewhere deep in Samsung's skinned settings. I mean, no matter if x-button is set to close or minimize these programs, it will "freeze" the device, and only soft reset is possible. Fortunately, the "exit" from the programs' menu works flawlessly.
That's all for the moment. I'm also looking forward to the official 6.5 from Samsung, although rumors about winmo 6.6 released in Feb are spread all over the internet.
