DISCLAIMER: I am a n00b at cooking, so be careful and assume nothing. Flashing your device is dangerous - if you screw something up, sometimes there are recovery methods if you search for them. I take no responsibility and am not going to bother labelling this "beta" since I think pretty much everything you get from xda-devs is beta

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FLASHING:
1. Get a microSD card sized 2 GB or lower (SDHC won't work) and format it with regular FAT filesystem. Copy my FLASH.DIO to the root of the card. Insert card into your device.
2. Put your device into SDLoader mode by holding VOLUP+OK(button on right side) and pressing RESET. Make sure your battery has a decent charge (over 50%) and isn't connected to any USB charge or sync cable (or else your device will just go into RUU mode).
3. Watch the magic... SDLoader will check the file integrity, flash to your device ROM, do a clean reboot (can take a minute longer than usual) and then go into the "Welcome to Windows Mobile, tap here to continue" stuff.

ROM ported from WM6.1 21042 beta 0.2 for 61x by sergiorus
Using kitchen tools and mucho technical assistance from keyx

Changes from HP 910c Factory ROM:
- newer OS build includes IE6 Mobile
- added Battery 100, GPS Utility, PIM Backup, SIM Backup, OBEX Inbox
- removed VoiceCommander, Google Maps and Google Search
- removed Windows Live (so you can get the newest one here)

Flash it, test it out, report bugs, much appreciated.

If you like this ROM, please consider a donation to keyx because of all the time he has spent answering my n00b cooking questions.

Yeah, just flash the official ROM Update from the HP website and you should go back (don't do this in Windows 7 beta or you'll get stuck halfway through - Vista or XP required). Alternatively you can take the HP ROM update, extract it, find the "flash.nbf" file, open it in xvi32 or other hex editor, delete the first 3432 bytes, save, copy to microSD card and flash using SDLoader.

Yes, with the factory ROM works perfectly.

Tomorrow I will try install your ROM again, because I liked it, is fast and let you know if it works, if not, is maybe a problem with my service provider.
