    with appropriate disclaimers and warnings, of course.

    The custom ROM threads have gotten very long and tedious to go through, and many important threads are hard to find. There have been several attempts to organize the info from all the disparate threads, but it's still too complicated.

    A separate forum for Treo hacking would encourage people to create separate threads for each topic (such as apps that work in ROM, ROMs by carrier, ROM tools, troubleshooting individual problems that crop up, partition size) instead of banging on the same thread for 269, 336, 697, or 90 posts.

    People who are interested in customizing their ROMs would have one place to look to find everything, and people who have no interest wouldn't have to be intimidated by all these tech-y threads.

    This works well at tivocommunity.com which has a separate area called "TiVo Underground" for hacking-type activity.

    I agree, the forum would be a great idea
    "If It Weren't For The United States Military"
    "There Would Be NO United States of America"

    You know, that's a really good idea. I could host a forum for that over on one of my sites if need be.

    Would it be better as a mobile version or a full version (or both?)

    I may be wrong but I think the intent was a separate forum heading within TreoCentral. I expect there would have to be several subheadings due to the variety of hardware & service providers so it might get just as complicated. If you want a totally separate mod forum, isn't that Shadowmite?

    I like the idea, but Palm may not like that. You have to wonder why isn't the custom rom stuff hosted here.

    I think the latest apps IE RomTool are making it to where we won't be posting anything other than just help and/or lists.

    Sorry, didn't mean to offend. Just trying to clarify and wondering how a separate site would relate to what we already have...

    I myself have been trying really hard to bury all the old threads, and just focus on the RomTool.
    I would like to see Consolidation to 2-3 major Threads:
    http://discuss.treocentral.com/showthread.php?t=108580
    http://discuss.treocentral.com/showthread.php?t=107543
    But ones still start new posts asking questions that again causes the scattered confusion.
    Am I wrong in thinking that questions could just be asked in those 2-3 places?

    That is why a forum would help this. Threads will always keep popping up. But then we could sticky the step by step , what programs etc.

    I think you've done a great job in organizing the ROM info. Thank you. It's mainly due to you that I had the nerve to build my custom ROM (though of course MANY other people deserve great credit including mmastrac, who created the actual tool).

    Given no central forum here in which to discuss and learn about ROMs, your threads and posts made it much easier to figure things out.

    But the reason I suggested creating a new forum is that it would be better if we didn't have to put every related question into just a couple threads. Sure everything on a subject is in one place, but information would be easier to find if each topic had it's own thread.

    It's ironic that Future Treos, in which there's often NO new information to discuss, has its own forum, and custom ROMs, which is a complex and growing area, is forced into just a few threads.
