    well wm6 should jsut be a file, like the update on the Q that runs on its own like an .exe or something thats all built in and all u do is click to run it and follow the directions and it flashes the phone.

    Awesome! I'm so glad to see this kind of stuff happening. I recently got a Q, but the WM5 on there really feels inadequate.

    Keep up the good work, guys! :laugh2:

    Most ROMs are developed to be flashed to your phone from a PC. I have seen a few that were placed on a SD card, then flashed the device when the SD was inserted, but they were developed by individuals, not the device manufacturer. I've personally never seen a ROM update that was run on the device. The most common file type for updates is .img, but I've seen many others as well.

    This is like watching the "Season Finale" of your favorite show...the cliff hanger just kills you...

    And I don't even care if I have WM5 or 6 at this point...I just want to know if it WORKS OR NOT!

    It will be nice to find out what happens. What would be nicer is an official release for Sprint. But if no carrier will officially release it.....................PIRATE TIME ARRRGGGGGGG MATEY!!!!!!!

    Man im sunburnt worse than u can imagine. Oh right, the phone. It failed, horribly. They tried my Q, and two others. One was another co-worker and one was fresh out of the box. Hes doing some internal digging to see if it is (like was mentioned) restricted to each individual phone.

    I'm off to drink some more, ill speak at you guys soon :p
