XV6700 with WM6 on Verizon

Hi!
I used to own a Motorola Q, and after last night it died. I ended up buying a VX6700 on the internet, and I saw you can put WM6 on it some how.

My carrier is Verizon Wireless.

What is the easiest, safest way I can install WM6 on my new XV6700? I see all these "Kitchen" versions and stuff, but I have no idea what they mean.

Thanks!
java

EDIT: I also saw this post: Apache WM6 CE OS 5.2.1620 (Build 18125.0.4.2)
(Not sure if its out-of-date update) But I dont know the difference between the Verizon and Verizion with 1.02 bootloader?

Re: XV6700 with WM6 on Verizon

Go to ppckitchen.org (follow this link - http://ppckitchen.org/joomla/index.p...d=58&Itemid=61) and follow the directions. When you put your phone in bootloader (press on/off button, record button (right above volume slider), and insert stylus in reset hole all at the same time), you'll see "Serial" at the top and v.1.0._ on the bottom of the screen - you might have to turn phone sideways. That's your bootloader version and it determines what selection you make in the kitchen as to ruu I believe. I have 1.0.2 and use "noid." The advantage to the kitchen is that you can select what programs you want to build into your rom, rather than using someone else's selections. This is important especially with the apache, since memory is so limited. You can build a bunch into the rom so that you don't have to manually install all your programs. Let me know if I can help further.

Re: XV6700 with WM6 on Verizon

I've used both Helmi's and LennySH's and like both. And I also use verizon. Helmi's is very stable, and when I was using LennySH's, it seemed fine. You might download both and see if there's stuff in one that you prefer over the other.

java

EDIT: also, i noticed something (im very interested in the GUI)... the newest helmi kitchen shows the clock totally different than the other versions of WM6. how can i get the default, digital looking clock look? Apache WM6.1 Kitchen CE OS 5.2.19716 (Build 19716.1.0.0) - UPDATED 20080308 vs Apache WM6 Kitchen CE OS 5.2.1908 (Build 18508.0.7.0) - UPDATED 20071217

You might want to activate it first to make sure it's working; that way if it doesn't work the person you bought it from can't blame it on your upgrading it. Just my way of thinking about it.
