    It appears to have 1.17 (Treo650-1b.17-CNG) firmware. Would it be worth it to update to the 1.20 Unlocked GSM Firmware.

    Not really. More hassle than it's worth. You have to first install an old beta firmware that doesn't check the type.

    Beg to differ. There's a version of the upgrader around that's made specifically for the Cingular phones. Copy it to a SD card, pop it in, and you're done. No fuss. Done it a few times myself. PM me if you can't find it.

    Hey Kardboard, I'm interested on that updater. Would you tell me where can I get it?

    I just got an unlocked Treo 650 Cingular branded phone.

    The Firmware is 01.51 & Software is Treo 650-1.17-CNG Hardware A

    I want to update to the 1.20 Unlocked GSM Firmware. Does anyone know where I can get the Upgrader specific for cingular?

    Will this update get rid of the cingular software and splash screen as well?

    thanks!

    Same boat I was in a year ago, I went from the Treo 650-1.17-CNG (7.1mb partition) to the 1.20 Unlocked GSM (8.4mb Partition) and then used the ROM updater to put the 1.20 Unlocked GSM back into 7.1 partition.

    Was it worth it? Absolutely!!! Increase stability and volume (no longer have to use VolumeCare). Not a single Reset (other than when testing new software) in almost a year.

    I've got 2 650's running this and both are Rock Solid Hummers with very good reception and sound.

    Here's the threads I used to learn how to do it...
