Windows Mobile 6.0 ROM cooked and ready for PPC-6700 and XV6700 users

HTC Apache Sprint PPC-6700 Verizon XV6700 gets Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional ROMIf you and your Sprint PPC-6700 or Verizon XV6700 (HTC Apache) have been feeling a little left out in the cold while all those other handsets get that sought-after Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional upgrade, buck up little buddy! ppcgeeks forum user Helmi_c has finally finished cooking his own WM6 ROM for said handsets.

Helmi_c will be dropping the WinMo6.0 bomb on us tomorrow – and will be providing carrier-branded ROMs for your convenience. Props and kudos to Helmi_c!

We love it when the little guy takes matter into his own hands and fills a need that manufacturers and carriers have woefully neglected to address. Especially when it means a brand new OS for WinMo fans.

Read on for more pics of the Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional ROM in action.

  • Shawn

    This worked out great for me. Just be sure to save your contacts with a 3rd party program you can reinstall on the new upgrade, or you will lose all your contacts. I had a coworker with the same phone who took my old pim, and beamed each contact over. Saved me. Other then that, great job! love it even more…

    I have the Apache PPC 6700 with the new WM6. My phone has been flashed to Cricket wireless. I cannot do picture mail or connect to Cricket WAP. I have these features enable via cricket so I’m at a loss. I’m told these features should work. Going to PPCGeeks.com and Howard’s Forum does not resolve my issues even though others claim the features work for them. I’m am not happy…. 👿

    This ROM does work for the 6700. Runs a bit slower but not that noticeable. Its nice.

I want windows 6 without hurting the cricket service and programs can someone help me

  • bill craf

    I have purchased a used vx6700 verizon and would like this upgrade. where can I get it. I have been searching for days with no luck. anything you can tell me will be very helpfull. also I would lke to send and receive picture messages MMS without using email. how do I do this. I am hoping the upgrade helps with this as well. thank you

  • Ande

    I have heard that the ROM can cause problems on the device and will cause it to not boot. i really don’t want to have spent all the money to turn the phone into a paperweight. WM6 is nice, and i’d love to install it, but will it really safely work on my PPC6700?
