Hello.
Is there any flash browser's out yet for wp7 ie: Skyfire before they dropped winmo (twats).
I used uzard for a bit on 6.5 but was nowhere near as good as skyfire.
Also will myplayer be released for wp7 as that was another great app on hd2 6.5.

Cheers nedster

nobody knows if you can brick or block your device with the upcoming update...i think its no problem to update, many others think different.

I'm with you on this one.

Think about it people, there are many different models from different hardware vendors, Microsoft won't be stupid enough to touch individual drivers used to run hardware, they will only update the software on top (the one we are already using) so I believe it will work just fine.

That is unless they've teamed up with HTC and decided to change the device identification system and ban a couple of thousand HD2 users. Not a likely scenario as it would simply be too much hassle (work).

Cotulla and Bepe tweaked and rewrote drivers to get the HD7 able to run WP7. We are also spoofing our devices to appear as HD7s to MS. If we do get a pushed update, and that update replaces any of those tweaked drivers, our devices will stop functioning or have broken functionality...

The HD7 is similar to the HD2, but it's not the same device with a different OS.

I didn't mention bricking...

We have a modified image that allows usage of the HD2 Wifi, GPS, Display, BT, Touchscreen, etc. It is not a stock HD7 ROM. If/when MS makes the update available, if it touches those tweaked drivers, it will likely break that functionality on the HD2.

We will need a new image rolled from the new source, if it does touch the tweaked drivers. You can't load any HTC WP7 build on the HD2, and expect it to work. It has to be specific to the device. We do not have a HD7, but we trick MS into thinking we have a HD7 for the purpose of making applications work (not drivers).

As I said before, HD7 is NOT the ONLY windows phone 7 smartphone. Why would an OS update touch any drivers? Different phones use different chips and components and require different drivers so Microsoft would have to use a LOT of resources to cover all (or most) of the phones and each model would get a different SW update.

Name a multi-hardware phone OS that has ever released a substantial one-size-fits-all OS update before, please. They get rolled out by device. There's a reason for that. The device manufacturers need to validate that the update doesn't cause problems for each of their devices.

Do you really think all Bepe and Cotulla did was to get WP7 to boot, and everything was hunky dory, and it will never need further optimization?
