    Upgrade to WM 6.1

    First good day and thank for this great forum. I have following question:

    I own a Motorola Q GSM (original liberated) with following specifications:

    AP:
    Q_GSM_01.03.17.09P
    BP:
    SMR300_G_11.60.40I_BP_SVN52
    BPFlex:
    GZDRWNRTLLLA037
    DSP:
    63383800

    with

    Windows Mobil 6
    Radio Version
    RTL Version 2.002
    CE OS 5.2.979 Build 17235.0.1.3

    It is multi language.

    I would like to update to WM 6.1 (if it makes sense). Can somebody point me to the right direction where to download the update for my phone?
    Do you also recommend to update the firm software?

    Thanks for helping
    Thomas

    Ahh you have a Q8. Not sure if their is a 6.1 for that device. Possibly a Euro ROM.. but I'm not positive it would work or just turn your device into a brick

    I only use it sometimes. Its only 6 months old.
    The multimedia functions and applications are very slow and hang sometimes till they get started. That's my only issue and the reason why i asked, as perhaps and upgrade solves those minor problems.

    By the way which never Q do you suggest, as i plan to buy a new one (hope this is not off topic).

    may try an app called SKlite from here..

    http://mq.roeiboot.com/apps/

    it cleans out temp files an often help reduce lag.

    If you want to stay with the Q series a Q9h may work.

    the Q11 isnt in the US, so if you are using it abroad you may be able to find it on ebay and as far as other moto qwerty devices running wm you arent going to find any as they have abandoned there wm department until wm7 comes out

    The Q11 is available in Brasil. (I am an European in Argentine).
    Can you suggest any other good Smartphone (with or without touchscreen) with WM?
    I like WM because of the great compatibility to my Notebook applications.

    Ah didn't knew that they abandoned the WM department. We know the reason?
