Any list of changes between Helmi_C's WM6 v. WM6.1?

So far, I've got:
- threaded SMS
- zoom-in functions on IE
- subjective "seems faster" comments

Can anybody else please add to this? Many thanks to all the work done here!

Re: Any list of changes between Helmi_C's WM6 v. WM6.1?

Yeah i'd like to know what else it has too. right now i'm running robmeyers rom, with threaded sms added plus memmaid, plus pocketweather and a couple of other things and i'm happy as hell with it. i've got 28.63MB free on main storage and 17.16 in main programs so i have lots and lots of space. but if there's nothing outstanding with the new rom i'll stick with what i have. the only problem i'm having is the phone breaks up during calls, but thats Alltel i think not the device.

I sure do appreciate all the work everyone does here though! you guys astound me!

My 6700 (verizon) was breaking up a lot, but with radio 1.43 upgrade, (even 1.41 was better than stock), I don't have to worry too much about it now. Maybe they improved signals in my area, but I am thinking it was the better radio. More bars, and better signal.

Does anyone know what the Schaps Advanced Config does? I did a search for it but was unable to find anything useful. Could have been a bad search, but I thought someone might know as well.

It allows you to do a lot of the reg hacks, without using a registry editor. (glymph cache, etc)

There is a task manager now that handles all of the running processes. The old running programs link in the Memory program is gone.

I f you run the kitchen you'll see what's been added and what's been left out. I tried it and got a WPA issue so I flashed back. While trying it though I noticed HTC Home customizer was different, more direct and usable in this version and I will confirm that the OS had a snappier response to commands, starting apps, etc.

Be ready to downsize the amount of programs that can be included in your ROM as well.

I am using 6.1 and I love it. They repaired the WiFi problem with WPA and I am having no issues at all with it. (I use it instead of the data line since all I have is 1x.) I would highly reccommend this ROM upgrade.

Ver6 was able to load more but had some software issues and slowdowns.
6.1 feels more stable and faster at the expense of rom space so I have about 1/3 less progs installed. Software running smoother too, but then again I boosted pagepool size a notch.
