HTC announces Windows Mobile 6.0 upgrade for AT&T 8525

HTC Windows Mobile 6.0 upgrade for AT&T 8525 TyTn

If you’re an AT&T 8525 (HTC TyTn Hermes) owner, then you’ve probably been drooling over the launch of the HTC Kaiser TyTn II in the US as the AT&T Tilt. But, if you’ve been envious of the AT&T Tilt 8925 for its Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional OS, HTC’s got your back. Our favorite little ODM-turned-smartphone-giant has just released an official Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional ROM for all AT&T 8525’s. The WM6 upgrade is finally available for free and should help you deal with the little green devil sitting on your shoulder (ours kept telling us to go get an AT&T Tilt 8925…until we gave in and got one).

The AT&T 8925 Tilt still has the upper hand in terms of features – 3 megapixel autofocus camera, tilting screen, integrated GPS – but if the freshness of WinMo6 is all your AT&T 8525 TyTn needs, then head on over to HTC’s download page and get crazy. That is, if you haven’t already gotten the AT&T 8525 WinMo6 ROM from xda-developers.

Just back up your data before said craziness. The flashing that WM6 Pro ROM will wipe your data.
