Hi,
I have a Cingular 8125 phone, I upgraded it WM6 with one of the ROM that I downloaded from xda forums. I do NOT know which one that I downloaded. I remember downloading and installing one of the T-Mobile stuff, then flashing a new WM6 ROM from this forum. My phone locks up every time AFTER I receive/make a phone call. I would like to go back to stock WM5. I have no idea how this works, but it appears that I am running the risk of bricking my device if I do it wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Following is the details of what I have.

During BOOT it shows
T-Mobile Logo
IPL 3.08
SPL 3.08
GSM 2.25.11
OS 6.1.0.0

After boot,
About page says Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
Device Information page says,
ROM Version: 6.1.0.0 WWE
ROM Date: 1/16/08
Radio Version: 2.25.11
Protocol Version 4.1.13.12

Thanks,
JSenthil

Isn't that I first have to downgrade my SPL/IPL to 2.xx in order for the original WM5 to work on my G3 wizard?

Can you please explain the steps involved? BTW, where can I find the original ROM, are you referring to the one that can be downloaded from the HTC website?

Thank you for your help,
JSenthil

Unfortunately I installed iPhone skin onto my Cingular 8125. I would like to revert process and get back my WM5, but I tried "hard reset" (Comm Mng + Voice buttons and poke reset with stylus) and nothing. Keeps going back to the iPhone skin. Few things do not work, still has scroll bar on side, connection and battery icons and no lock mode. Contact list feels like iPhone, but is not well developed, still has bugs and menus to la-la land.
Please help, I don't know much about WM5 or cell phones.

Thanks!
