Has anybody tried porting Windows 7 onto the Magician?
I'm sure it will work. It MUST work.

It's been a year, and as much as I still don't really like the Atom, I'm glad I switched from the Magician. At least for the likes of the Atom, we had folks porting a working WM6 unofficially already - heck, even AKUs later than 2.x (which load faster), Too bad the Mini folk just gave up, eh?

The new unofficial ROM looks pretty good, tho. Try that one if you really need WM6. <_<

I guess y'all can wait for Linux.

(Then again, another 64MB of ROM can do wonders.)

no wm5 no wm6 no wm-NONE

This is very simply to explain why:

* Windows Mobile 5 and above requires at least 96mb of ROM

* Unless you add 32megs to your Magician, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RUN WM5

Period.

Re: ** NO WINDOWS MOBILE 5.0 OR 2005 FOR MAGICIAN ** (czech translation)

Czech translation :D

V současnosti NENÍ MOŽNÉžádným způsobem provozovat Windows Mobile 5
na zařízení HTC Magician (u nás známo hlavně jako T-Mobile MDA Compact II).
Jakékoliv snahy o portování tohoto jakkoliv modifikovaného systému vyústí v nejlepším případě v nové flashování WM 2003 , v tom horším k trvalému poškození přístroje. Hlavním důvodem je absence ovladačů hardwaru tohoto zařízení pro WM5. Pokud by mněl tento systém fungovat na Magicianu vyžadovalo by to vývoj nepředstavitelného množství knihoven a ovladačů pro toto zařízení. Dnes již víme že WM5 na Magicianu je pouhým neuskutečnitelným snem.

Not true. There are WM5 devices with 64MB ROM.
Even WM6 could be stripped down to fit a 64MB ROM.
It's impossible because nobody has found a leaked SPL/IPL that's compatible with WM5/6. It's also not practical to experiment with other devices' SPL/IPL because even small differences will brick the device.
