Thank you for reply, but Im about year on classic marvell and have no probs with.
Its strange issue about my 6.5.3, but I think problem was in installed software, if you try clean 6.5.3 I dont think it will have this issue again.

messaging replacement for Windows Mobile

Hi everybody!

First off, thank you Heineken78 for the great rom and all your involvement and dedication to keep i780 up and running with newest software available.

Do you know if there is some workaround of very annoying issue I get trying to insert a file as an email attachment in windows mobile mail client: you can't go deeper into subfolders to chose files from - you only can explore folders in the root directory of either main memory or SD card. There is of course an option "All Folders" but it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Maybe there is some decent replacement software?

P.S. For almost 4,5 years I've been using my i780 and still have no plans to change it in a coming year.

I downloaded rom i780MARVELL2_128DPI_BOOT_PDA.WWE.EXE (page 252/download via mediafire) and have a problem. After about some minutes my PDA request a password to unlock: "Enter your password and tap "Unlock." I have never set any password and automatic locking. What is this? I need to soft reset the PDA and this helps. But after some minutes the story is the same.
Please help..

Still great phone. Im using only it with classic marvel rom.
Mouse + keyboard + Windows have made great PDA with full communictaion possibilities.
Sure I was making ROM to like it. And Im glad that you enjoy it too ;)

Its really sad that google has broken smartphone maket with android, so MS was forced to make wp7(8) totally useless as PDA.
WinMo is RIP. But i780 is alive! Small PC with pentium II speeds in your pocket.

Sure you can Donate me if you want. Now Im able to get payments after years.. ;)

Hi heineken78,

its true that google has broken the smart phone market with their android. and we're very thankful that up to this time you still made wonderful improvements to this phone model.

this phone is still with me and functional up to this day. even that i do have my android unit i keep this unit as my everyday phone and i love using it as my messaging phone. very stable and flexible enough to handle my daily task.

Best regards,

Hello all.
I know that this is not the right topic for my question, but it's only i780 topic with any activity at all.
My question is: can anyone share download link for i780 english language Windows Mobile 6.0 (Yes six dot zero!) firmware. Region is not that imortant or revision. I only need it to be 6.0 and in english (well Serbian will be ok too, but there is no such firmware for i780).
I need the 6.0, and not 6.1 or 6.5, because my old i780 has faulty flash memory and only works with 6.0 (with 6.1 it cant use sms and ringer is silent, with 6.5 it wont boot). In service they told me that flash is faulty and that repair would be costier than comparable new device, and they havent had 6.0 f/w only 6.1. I was able to find 6.0 firmware in russian and i780 mostly works with it.

Tomash I suggest you to try first EXE version of ROM. because Exe loader is testing phone memory. It its fail, try other and other bin builds.
I meet same situation. 1 ROM from 3 is booted on friends device.
Its not depended from WM version its depended from package.
Good luck.

Thanks for advice.
However i have tried several wm 6.5 roms and none booted. Official 6.1 boots but it is unusable. Apps are crashing, and ringer is silent. SMS app cant open received smses.
With 6.0 it mostly works, except that some apps crash sometimes.

    Thank you guys for support and help! Download links below.

    This build contains Hack program. Inappropriate usage of it can damage your device!!!. Backup device before using it and try it on your responsibilty.

    Before you test my ROM you will HAVE TO FLASH FULL OFFICIAL PDXIB1 update to avoid bricking your device after your previous installed ROM!
    Also if you expect any strange errors, hangs or hardresets apply this update cos some of i780 device hav "Easter egg" inside and are able to get bricked shortly after those symtoms.

    1. OFFICIAL UPDATOR PDXIB1 exe Patched for "Low battery" and "Incorrect version" warnings.


    2.OFFICIAL PDXIB1 UPDATE in parts for MIRAGE uploader HERE. Mirage uploader for new roms.

    UP: NOTICE for Repack roms!!!: Delete cfgfingermouse link from windows/startup. Its remained from prevoius version, now causes 4-way pad not working.

    -Improved stability;
    -Improved filesystem;
    -Improved CPU speed 624MHZ is no more!!!:
    3 CPU profiles ( auto:speedstep1/speedstep2/speedstep3).
    --POWER SAFE (Extra power save. Lowered voltages) - 155/312/520MHZ;
    --**NORMAL-DEFAULT- (Normal usage. Default voltage. Smooth and responsible)- 208/416/728MHZ;
    --OVERDOZE (Gaming, Increased voltage,power usage extreme. wasnt tested for long) - 260/520/806 MHZ. Added 22/11: Overdoze mode is lasting more than day on 1 battery cycle with WIFI, mailing, surfing, calling.

    I havn't disabled speedstep1/speedstep2, cos without them battery usage became very high.

    * Native overclocking is based on patched original processor speedstep driver of i780 by code from MS sources for PXA320 devices
    ** Default profile on i780 was 208/416/624mhz.

    Anyway take care fo it!;)
