So what benefits will this give me if I flash my V1615? I'm intrigued, but not sure I want to risk flashing work's phone just yet!

Included:

  • Threaded SMS text messages
  • Speedier, faster, quicker - however you put it, WM6.1 should work better
  • Internet Explorer now lets you define a homepage, and also zoom in and out using a nice and clean interface
  • Microsoft Officeincludes One Note
  • Domain Enroll in Settings (Enrolling in a domain will connect your device with company resources.)

  • Recent Programs when pressing Start menu

  • Improved Task Manager

Hmm, tempted to try it. I have become a little addicted to ROM flashing recently and yours seems to get reasonable feedback on xda devs.

One problem I have with a lot of roms on xda is that there is always something that has been changed that I don't like, e.g. the task manager is changed when the original one was fine for me. This one looks nice and simple so i could easily install what I want. If you could make it user customisation capable, this could make me even more tempted!!

Excellent, I reckon I'll give this a go, as it sounds like just what I want, a nice, up-to-date, and more importantly clean ROM :)

Wow, this sounds mighty tempting. Bah, I'm not sure I can be bothered to re-install all my stuff...

You can use sprite backup to go between ROMs can't we. Is that possible going from 6 to 6.1?

You might want to check as I think I remember reading on xda that it doesn't work between different versions of WM. I might be wrong though

For restoring stuff like contacts, text messages, etc., I use PPCPimBackup which if I remember correctly is freeware and works between versions

For restoring apps via cabs etc., UC is great which is why it would be good if it was added to this rom :)

It can also restore settings such as registry entries which is what I am trying to get my head around at the moment!

Bah. But part of me thinks its good to start afresh. I would like to keep my text messages though, so thanks for the PPCPimBackup suggestion. I might well give this a go next week if it turns out to be a lot better than the WM6 ROM. Someone else with a Vario III try it please :)

Is there any way of backing up the existing ROM (or obtaining an exact image) before taking the plunge with this new one....?

There's a reconstructed T-Mo ROM on the same site as the one above, although I've never flashed it myself, but AFAIK it works fine

Oh well, I bit the bullet and did the upgrade - mildly traumatic but my heart rate has settled again.

I like the look of WinMo 6.1 so far.....! I'll post back if I end up regretting it!!

2 questions, since I've never really flashed a PPC before.

1. This will wipe out my contacts and added programs right? So I will have to reinstallal Camera Aware ect right?

2. Does this Rom include World card mobile, & Tom Tom teaser that HTC has? I dont use TomTom but World card is somewhat useful for me.

Thanks

1 - Yes, it wipes everything. In some ways this is good, nothing like a fresh start - maybe I didn't really need all those extra programs!

2 - World Card is included, this is new to me so will have to try it out. No Tom Tom teaser, but I will be reloading TT6 anyway.
