    OK... total noob to flashing new ROMs.

    What happens when you do this? I take that everything is wiped and you have to reinstall all your programs/contacts/etc.?

    I have the ROM d/l'd... I may wait until the easy-install file is published.

    Thanks in advance.

    yes, all info from the phone will be wiped. There are more than a few members here who are experienced with RSD (especially in the Q9h camp), I think there may be some sort of instructions in the Q9h forum, but if you're unsure it may be better to wait. since the motorola software updater makes it a little easier

    So you are saying that this is Windows Mobile 6.1 for Alltel? I have a couple of questions:-

    1. Why have two versions just for different colored phones?
    2. Is it possible to see the file on the rsddownldownload.motorola.com site rather than a direct link?
    3. Should this be moved to the Alltel forum?

    Thanks

    Craig

    This thread is for the VZW WM 6.1, and the link to motomoddinguk.info is for the VZW ROM.

    Thanks n99hockey, that's way I thought about opening creating a new thread in the Alltel forum! Don't want to lose the momentum on this thread though! :laugh2:

    Hi, getting ready to start, but can't get to boot mode. I've tried hold the *# on start up with no luck.

    Thanks,

    i found out that that didn't work either. you have to hold *(A) and the return key(the little arrow above the caps key). that did it for me. i guess they used different buttons for the different versions of the q.

    Stupid question: since this is the VZW ROM, does that mean the firmware branding will all be VZW- I.e. call screen, missed call/ call history screen, etc?

    Is it worth the upgrade? Also, have you setup any email accounts yet- Preferably IMAP? What are the three main reasons you'd advise me to take the plunge?
