This thread will be used for the development of my 6.5 rom for the 700wx.

Let the cooking begin!

Update 6-5-2009:
I'm going to be on vacation for the next week. Please watch for new posts to this thread in case joojoobee666 makes some more progress on our little display driver issue.

Today we managed to procure a copy of ddi_nop.dll (it's basically a dummy display driver) and used it in place of ddi.dll. Windows Mobile 6.5 did indeed boot, but at the cost of no display. Since there is no display, we are unable to tell what else may be wrong.

So, this is an update and a call out to anyone who is willing to help. We are looking for anyone who can:

a.) offer a ddi.dll from any Intel PXA27x based device, and preferably a msm6500 chipset as well

b.) has a NEWER 700w/700wx ddi.dll than the Sprint 1.15 ROM or VZW 1.24 ROM

c.) has the skills to debug the one we have and figure out why it hangs any gwes.exe above 20273.

I'm sure once we get past this part there will be other bugs to work out, but one hurdle down is better than the none.

Finally...PROGRESS!

Update: The emulator image is almost complete. There are issues with file attributes which are causing some problems. Right now, you are unable to change the theme, delete files, or change network settings. These are the same issue I ran into on the 6.1 rom. It should only take a few days to work through the issue. I'll post what I have finished so far.

Download - WM 6.5 Emulator Image


I am rooting HARD for you.
I've installed SPB Mobile Shell 3.0 and 2.1 for my nephew as an eye candy but they have been buggy to say the least.
I've been using the WM6.5 on my Touch Pro and my nephew really wants it in his phone.

If you can get 6.5 to work on my nephew's Treo 700wx, it will be like having a new phone all over again!

I can't wait until it is released. ETA on the release???

Yup, I've been a lurker for the longest time, and my first post was in anticipation for this 6.5 rom. Go NR!

Is it possible to make the WM6.5 version have two versions? one with activesync (normal one), and one with activesync REMOVED? because the KeepAlive hack doesn't work .. I am having it conflict with the USB modem and the ##DIAG port.

Also does the WM6.5 IE 6.1 (I think) fix the graphics corruption issues when scrolling webpages with the stylus?

TIA
