    What are the differences? If I were to install a custom ROM, should I update firmware before or after?

    I think the general convention is that firmware refers to the actual hardware. My 650 is hardware A. I do know that hardware B is also out there. ROM refers to the actual operating system software.

    So do I install the custom ROM before or after the firmware?

    Firmware is software (operating system, built-in programs like VersaMail, etc.) that is stored in the Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EPROM). We commonly refer to the EPROM in the Treo as the ROM.

    So the Firmware is essentially built-in software. Not hardware.
