Newbie Questions - Orange
Firstly this is my first post on here so Hi to everyone, i've never seen a forum so packed with information before!
Secondly i've just picked up my first windows mobile phone, a HTC Touch HD(what a phone!), the first thing I did being an avid messer was look for a forum like this one to see what I can mess with and I must say it's blown my mind
Now before you say read the Wiki, I have done about 5 times and it's left me with a few questions that I couldn't find answers too...
Now the first things I have done are install the hotfix to reduce lag, google maps, installed .NET framework 3.5 to my pc which also installed on my phone and installed HD tweak but now I feel like I need more so i've been reading about these ROM's and RADIO's??
My phone is on Orange details below :
ROM version : 188.8.131.52 WWE
Radio version : 1.09.25.14
Protocol version : 52.49a.25.26U
What does each of those do and can I put a non branded ROM on my Orange phone as it says that it's locked on your Wiki page or will it mess it up?
I've kinda figured out that the ROM is like the OS so I can understand why newer is better but I have no idea what the Radio is though??
So I guess my questions in brief are:
1. What is a Radio?
2. Can I put a normal ROM on my orange phone? (if so..)
3. Which one? The latest normal one or a cooked one? (Duttys?)
Sorry for all the questions but I just couldn't find what I was looking for I guess, I hope someone can help!
