PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache

Hi guys. Here is a clean ROM I put together for the Apache using build 21501. Pretty nice and stable build. Thanks to those involved in putting the build together. Since this is a clean ROM, there are minimal programs in it, to ensure it will run smoothly, and also so you can start small then add whatever programs you'd like.

Programs included:
MS Office
Solitaire & Bubble Breaker


How to flash:
1. Check your bootloader, then download the appropriate ROM below.
2. Put the phone in bootloader (Power button+Record button+Stylus in reset hole).
3. Plug into computer, if on Vista open Windows Mobile Device Center and shut off USB Connections.
4. Run the excutable in the ROM folder.
5. When done HARD RESET(two soft keys+Stylus in reset hole) DO NOT FORGET TO DO THIS, and enjoy the ROM!

Links:
v1.00-v1.02-v2.02
v1.00-v1.02-v2.02


This is a generic ROM so it works for all carriers, you might however want to hit the reset whole upon first boot up. When you see "OEM Customizations will start in 3 seconds", hit te reset hole. If you would like a specfic carrier ROM, post down below or drop me a P.M. and I will post it.

If you need a more detailed flashing guide or run into issues, please read my guides, link for those in my signature. If you can't find help, drop me a message.

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache

Thanks man, appreciate the work! I've tried several 6.5 kitchen builds but nothing has been complete or stable enough for me to stick with. I'm excited to try this.

When I tried to flash, I got "rom ugrade utility is not designed for your device" error 150. 1.04BL verizon...

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache

It's thoughtful of you to offer a pre-cooked ROM for a new release, since you have the expertise to deal with the early-adopter bugs. Much grass.
I too got the "150" error on my Sprint 1.00 6700, using Vista 32-bit with "Allow USB Connections" unchecked (I think that's right).

EDIT: Upgrade works with XP SP3 32-bit.
EDIT: Seems to work well so far, but no longer have my data connection. SMS and phone work. Looks pretty...

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache

PDAJ, this is a very nice ROM indeed. All I had to do is perform the upgrade on XP instead of Vista and it worked great. The ROM is running fine on my Sprint 1.00 Apache with the exception of no data. The phone and texting works.

Is there any chance you can share how you built this ROM so we can reproduce your results and not beg you for a Sprint 1.00 Apache, etc. (cough cough) ROM?

I should probably try the Apache Performance/overclocking app on this build to possibly remove the small hesitation I sometimes see in the interface. Overall, however, it runs really smoothly on 6.5.

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache

Much thanks for your hard work! Unfortunately, I'm getting "Error 150" while trying to install your ROM on my VZW XV6700 w/2.0.5 bootloader on my WinXP w/SP3 laptop. What am I doing wrong?

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache

A little more info: I've tried the WM6.5 Apache v1.04-v2.04-v2.05 ROM several times but it always fails with Error 150. The page prior to that - which usually shows all the device and update versions - displayed no values.

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache

webdaddy, that's the same behavior I saw on Vista. Strange..

I get no data connection, and an error "Cannot connect with current connection settings. To change your connection settings, tap settings."

UPDATE: I just added a modem connection for my carrier (Sprint) using #777 as the number to dial and I have a data connection now. I guess when I built with the Kitchen and selected Sprint as my carrier, that was done for me automatically.

Start / Settings / Connections / Connections / Add a new modem connection / Next / #777 / Next / leave everything blank / Finish / click Save Password when given the opportunity

UPDATE: Plugged the phone into power only (not PC-connected) overnight to recharge battery and phone was locked this morning with the right-top amber indicator LED on solid, not blinking. Rebooting a few times only got me as far as seeing a band across the top of the screen that holds the battery, speaker, etc. symbols. I had set up Exchange ActiveSync, my data connection with Sprint, Yahoo Mobile 3, and WMWiFiRouter. A hard reset cleared it, but it was still sluggish for a while after that.
