Hi all, I just thought to create a post where we can all post any info regarding the appearance of a rom with wm2005 mpx220. Keep it updated! ;)

Erm...no. Talking about it is fine, posting links to it is, obviously, AGAINST THE RULES.

Besides, the only roms that exist are for the C500 and MPx200 and they will never be released to the public.

Yeah I seem to remember people saying that about WM2003 for the MPx200 and then (to a much lesser degree) that with WMP10 for the MPx220 ;)

You can easily see how it happens though

Developer gets it, gets the rom. Gives it to friend a and says "Don't give this out"

Friend a thinks I'll give it just ot friend b, he's trustworthy and says "Don't give this out"

This goes on for a bit until someone gets it and thinks "Well I don't care where it came from. Everybody can have :D"

And as for the device locking thing they do for it.. Well how many would be willing ready and able to sit down and nut out a crack for that? (Rhetorical question)

It's all a matter of time and patience.

Erm...no. The MPx200 2003 rom was flashed by Microsoft to the devices of people who attended certain events. Hence why it got out so easily...that and Jacek hosting it on MSMobiles.

I never said we would post links to download thw rom. But would it harm us to be updated? What if someone gets the rom on his phone and wants to share with us the pros and cons? I can see that we have already started a good conversation. Let's continue.

Does anybody know if the mpx200 rom will work on the mpx220??

Different method, but the principal is still the same.

How can you be so sure? Do you know something we don't? I am pretty sure that's it is just a matter of time before our friends the Chinese, come up with a wm 5 rom, just like they did with wmp10.

it seems that the wm5 ROM (at least for the HTC typhoon) is keyed for the IMEI of every phone, and needs a bootloader to be unlocked so it can be flashed... so i guess microsoft is really careful not to repeat the mpx200 with 2003 issue :S

I 've read in this forum about some guys that got their hands on an wm5 rom for the mpx200, and even managed to load it to their device. So I guess that whoever leaked that one, had cracked the lock if there is any.

not sure about a mpx220 version, and yes i did try it and it works great apart from the camera app (the quality is a little crap and it takes a while to load.)

there no reason why the wm5 version i have shouldn't work with a 5600, its onlyin english and german thou.

Even if you find an image for an MPX flavor don't bother with it. WM5 requires more storage space then the phone can handle so you need to add additional storage for it (not that slipping a card into the phone is all that hard or anything but...). It is slow as hell on the motorolas anyway so it isn't really worth the effort.

It is rather unfortunate that save for being in Redmond (and only then being aware of the flashing events MS put on) the only way to get WM5 on a typhoon is by grabbing it off the net. It runs great on the hardware and while most of the obvious changes aren't revolutionary (most of the UI changes were to address specific complaints, not a complete reinvention of it) it is a nice upgrade. The nuts and bolts changes are definetely nice, and if you work for a place that installs the new exchange service pack the email push technology completely rocks. It would be nice if the carriers would offer upgrades to their customers, but that is not likely to happen.

I have read numerous threads that say that microsoft, tested wm5 on an mpx200. I have also read that mpx200 needs an sd card for wm5 to run on it, so I really think that wm5 should run if not fast, surely not as slow as you say.

Any way we 'll just have to wait untill the chinese guys make it happen. ;)

It was tested, and it does require an SD card. The motorola hardware is already fairly slow, and when you consider that WM5 does require a bit more juice to run and would be partially running off of an SD card you do get some slowdown. You can still use it, but it is noticably slower than the previous version of WM on the hardware. Honestly, I don't think it worth the trouble.

Of course, as a caveat, I once owned a motorola T720, one of the worst pieces of hardware ever released on the market, so I do have a grudge against motorola.

Although all that you mention might be true, tme mpx220 does not require an sd card for wm5 to run, and furthermore, compared to all the nokias I have owned the past years, it works just fine.
