    So when you got WM6 working, did the BT work better (voice activation)?

    I did a quick strip and didn't see the same performance gains as I saw with WM5. I suspect that either I'm seeing the max performance already due to tweaks made, or else WM6 doesn't loop through the \Windows\ dir like WM5 does (thus slowing it down).

    The quick stripped version of WM6 feels to me about the same speed as WM5 stock. The default version I'm using feels a bit slower, but suprisingly not by that much.

    The stripped WM5 is definatly faster, and I will probably stick with that in the long run, especially if I can port some of the WM6 files back to WM5. The main ones I'd like to port back are high density card support, threaded messaging, and Office (mostly because switching to another PPT will save over a meg alone).

    While WM6 "felt" nicer, and certainly was prettier, I'm definatly for functional > aesthetics. Kinda like when you switch WinXP from the Windows XP style to the Windows Classic (ALA Win2k) style. It doesn't feel as pretty, but everything works and responds just a bit quicker.

    I still need to do some diff's of the two dump directories (WM5 vs WM6) and figure out what exactly got changed. It's kinda hard because the WM6 I'm using doesn't have a lot of Palm's overlays on it, while obviously the WM5 does. (Plus of course the \Windows\ dir is one giant jumbled mess.)

    I don't have a BT headset to test. Anyone wanna buy me one so I can test it? (Buy me an HD card to test too while you're at it.)

    don't excpect voice activation via bluetooth. In fact, it just won't happen. A wm6 newer bluetooth stack might help the problems we all have with bt but the voice activation is hardware limited on the 700wx, not software. Hannip's bluetooth stack for a2dp is probably the best we're going to get with bt on the wx.

    That's included in the latest patches for both Verizon and Sprint.

    Nice Progress with this ebag....

    The one thing I would want on my WM5 Treo is the new Outlook, and luck getting this to work.

    Hmm that's interesting with the WM6 rom. What device did it come from? I would like to test WM6 on a verizon one. What modifications would I have to make/what rom should I use?
    Thanks for all your hard work,
    Landon

    As there isn't a WM6 ROM ready for release....none.

    Without Palm's overlays within the WM6 rom, I can tell you guys, the WM6 rom will be almost worthless in it's current form...

    That is what makes the w,wx,v Treo series special... the secret sauce.

    I can't disagree there. There is really nothing super-special about WM6.

    That is exactly what I want. I am hoping you can figure that out.

    Beta version of my take 1. I was going to strip out PIEPlus for the take 1, but then figured that since it doesn't registered itself I'd leave it in. Darth Pooh helped me test (and fix) a few things, though suprisingly there were few problems....

    Plus PocketOutlook??

    That would be fantastic.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't that be part of Office?

    Nope. Totally different.

    Okay, getting greedy now, but the new ActiveSync would also be valuable.

    Hmmm... maybe it would be easier to just use the whole WM 6.1 package.

    Ebag tried WM6 and he feels that a stripped WM5 with WM6 components ported backwards would be better.

    I know it's just aesthetic, but I know WM6 on HTC StarTrek (the non-touchscreen smartphone) has a pertier GUI and home screen layouts.

    Do those port over?

    Hey Ebag333,

    Finally got around to trying your trimmed standard rom..

    Freaking ridiculous.

    I was expecting it to be fast but dayyum...it's lighting fast (even more so when you some reg tweaks, or just do the MemMaid ones).

    I think a WM5/WM6 hybrid (as discussed above) would be a fantastic option.

    Because of this, I hereby give Ebag's Custom ROM for the 700wx Malatesta's 2008 Seal of Approval:
