Want a new ROM for my M5000?

Hello all,

Well after a few weeks of no joy with my M5000 & b!tched at orange and got an FOC upgrade to the C600 which I have had a while.

This weekend it dawned on me that I have a perfectly good phone gathering dust & I should try & get it working well.

Questions are:

What is the best Rom to install on the Universal?

How do I go about installing a non-Orange ROM?

Is this advisable or should I just flog the phone?

Thanks,

Leon

ROM upgading to other makes of ROM is not easy but is possible - if you want to do this head over to xda-developers where te merits and demerits of each ROM together with details of how to do it are discussed in detail.

And yes, it is worth it ;)

I use the iMate AKU2 rom on mine, and it's great :)

What is it that you think you are going to get different by using someone elses ROM???

Features and programs not available with with your own operator's ROM? A more advanced radio stack that's able to lock onto a weaker signal? Less intrusive Operator branding? Take your pick.

Hi Modaco, not posted for a Loooong time (about 3.5 years, when I had the original spv; Hi Paul, Mono et al. Bloody hell things have changed around here)

Anywhoo, I've just got me a Universal (SPV M5000) and been playing around for a while, got rid of all the orange rubbish, got it all the relevant tweaks/ software/ bootscreen... set up how I want it. Now this post has me thinking about ROMs.

What's available out there? Pro's and Con's of each. What are you running and why?

Welcome back.

Much as I dislike recomending another forum xda-developers has one which is very technical and discusses the pros and cons of each ROM and tells you how to load a new ROM (it's not that straightforward) - sugest you look there for ROM details.

Hope you enjoy your M5000

I have an Exec (now on T-Mob was on O and 3) but have stuck with O2's ROM because it's not bas and easier than changing. :)
