I started with a 6700, then upgraded to the 6800 and then moved to the 6900 all for Alltel and now with the merger i had to switch and didnt hear any good stuff about thier TP or Diamond enough for me to spend 200 bucks more on those over this phone. Hopefully someone could give me some info on this. I have read some threads that seem to have it being somewhat difficult to flash the 6.5 ROM and others saying that its not that hard at all .. well any help would be terrific....
6900 for Sprint is the first smart phone I ever had. Took about six months fiddling with the normal customizations that I could do till I got bored and finally made the jump to 6.5. With everything to read on flashing I can understand how it could seem a little confusing or scarry, it really isn't that hard. I unlocked using the USB method and flash using the SD card. Couldn't be easier. First off, what Rom are you running now? I had 6.0 at first. Unlocked using ImCoKeMaN's 2.31 unlocker since I wanted GPS. Flashed to Sprint official 6.1 ROM, gave me the most to get the most upto date radio. Then flashed to custom 6.5 ROM, to get the GPS, Battery tweaks, TouchFlo goodness, and others. What do you find difficult? What do you think you need clarification on. If I could be any help PM me. I could post all the normal links to the posts to get this done but it sounds like you have done the reading you should have on this subject, just need a little clearing up. Send me a PM if you want to know the specific steps to flash I did. Shouldn't be any different for you except for the carrier.
