What is it that you need help with? I have a 700wx and would love wm6.1, however, what would be the advantage of flashing to 6.1? and is there an unlocker available for the 700wx?

I'm very new to all of this, so I'm not really sure what the unlocker would be for. There is a way to load custom roms. It's extremely easy. I would like to get the 6.1 rom I have for the 750 on the 700wx, because I want the threaded sms embedded in the rom, and I would also like to get EVDO working correctly. I believe EDVO is not working correctly because of the verizon update. At the very least, I need a way to get it out of the current wm6 rom.

I have been able to add and remove files from the wm6 rom for the 700wx, but I am unable to dump it without errors. I have tried removing all of the files in the rom, and adding the files from the 750 6.1 rom. The rom will flash fine, but then 700wx sits at the bootloader. When I run nbinfo on the 750 rom it shows that it has a boot sector, but the wm6 rom for the 700wx does not.

Like I said, I'm very new to this. My progress so far has been trial and error.

You have to soft reset the device for it to connect again. It will then run fine until EVDO times out, or you loose signal. I know verizon bastardized there EVDO implementation, and had to release a patch to correct there EVDO issue. I believe this patch was added to this rom, and is causing problems if you are running on another carrier. I'm running on alltel.

I am hoping an unbranded 6.1 rom will correct the issue. However, I am having trouble getting the 6.1 rom to boot after it has been flashed. I will give the 6.0 rom for the Treo 700wx to anyone willing to help. It runs much better than the stock rom.

Would a dumped 750 treo 6.1 ROM help? I have not started messing my with 700wx yet but I do have a 750 and I can throw 6.1 on it fast.

I have a 6.1 rom and I'm able to get it to dump. I just can't figure out how to get it ported over to the 700wx.

Before you can flash custom roms to a phone you need to be able to unlock it. Thats why I asked if there was an unlocker for the 700wx, as far as I know there isnt one. I have been searching for one and havent found one as of yet.

The link in my first post is a custom wm6 rom. I was able to successfully flash it to my 700wx. It runs well with the exception of the intermittent evdo issue. All I had to do to flash it, was format my sd card as fat32. Copy the file to the sd card. Take the battery out of the phone. Reinsert the battery while holding the up volume key. The phone displays press up to update rom. Press up on the direction control. The phone will display checking sd card. Then it will show a screen with a progress bar that says downloading rm + bl or something to that effect. After the progress bar hit 100% the phone reboots, and you are running wm6. I never had to unlock my phone. I have confirmed that it works for Alltel, Sprint, Verizon, and Bell 700wx's. I would be really suprised if it didn't work for all of them.

NightRaven:

Interesting stuff. I'm going to have to DL it and take a look.

Couple of questions.

What AKU is this?
Does this have the Palm branded tweaks (IE: threaded messaging)?
Does this have SDHC support?
Where'd you get this ROM? (I suspect I know from where...or maybe I should say from who... )

You might also want to check out what we're doing over on TreoCentral. We have a WM6 ROM that seems to be working okay. I haven't used it a lot as I personally prefer the speed of WM5, but I'll probably start playing with it more at some point.

Not really sure. Does Sprint have the *228 option to activate a phone or update the PRL? That might help... You could also try one of the other options in Settings/Phone/Services tab/network.

How did you flash?

I haven't used this ROM yet, but I've used another WM6 Verizonized ROM, and had no problems with my Sprint Treo 700wx.
