Hello! Everyone,

I am desperately need some help. It's almost six months since I read about flashing custom roms and until now I can't find the courage to do it. For I don't muster enough knowledge (I think) in doing it.

I have an HTC Universal running in wm5. I want to flash it into wm 6.5. Is there some body who can forward me the suitable ROM and help me in the process of upgrading it? I really want to flash it to WM 6.5 so I can install cool looking GUI of e book reader in my device and some more eye candy stuffs.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, Orb!
Hello! Orb,

It would really help me if you can point out what are the preliminary things I need to do than saying click your signature.

That is really what you did last time I ask about how to upgrade my Unit. Until now It gave me no confidence because I don't know where will I begin. I hope you can re consider helping me out. Thanks!

I can tell you that the only way youīll get to flash is to read a lot, we all started same as you, first of all loose the fear, if you follow the instructions all will be fine.

Hello! Orb,

I hope everything is fine at your end.

Regarding the upgrading/flashing of my device. What are the things that one could get if he/she flashed her device? In other words why would someone wants to upgrade his/her device?

What I mean by this question is, is there any reason why would a dopod 900 user like me would want to upgrade from windows mobile 5 to windows mobile 6.1? What are the things that I can do if I will upgrade?

Yes I think there would be some nice applications that can only be installed in Windows Mobile 6.1 or Windows Mobile 6.5 however, if I just install a program that would do a make over of my GUI, SPB mobile shell for instance, everything will be like the same even if it has different Versions of Windows Mobile for I am using the same alternative shell for my device as a GUI.

Any insights? or word of wisdom that could enlightened me? Thank you so much!
