HTC 7 Pro with WM 6.5.3 on it?

I would like the phone if it would run WM 6.5.3.

HTC - Products - HTC 7 Pro - Overview

Could someone imagine to have a Chef cooking a WM 6.5.3 Rom for this device?

Regards
Highc

Re: HTC 7 Pro with WM 6.5.3 on it?

First off, need to have the drivers that was designed for 6.5, wont' be able to use OS7 drivers.. why downgrade? If you want 1GHz CPU, then get HD2 which has 6.5 and can put on 6.5.3. If you need to have QWERTY keyboard, then get HTC Touch Pro 2, and overclock CPU to reasonable rate.. around 700MHz...

I have a feeling this won't happen either... If anything, it'll be like Android on the TP2 - you'll have to boot into WM 6.x from WP7

Let's take a look.

WP7 phones have a brand spanking new super locked down bootloader, so before you flash a damn thing, you have to flash a custom bootloader (like HSPL). OK, so we finally got some crazy genius to get a custom bootloader flashed on the WP7 phone, now what?

We need to custom port WM6.5 to this phone right? Well, let's take a look.


WP7 loads the OS into memory completely differently than WM6.x does, it also uses the SD card as part of the primary OS partition (kind of like raid-zero). You would have to rewrite all of the drivers to work with the WP7 interface after you wrote a custom boot-loader that would even allow you to flash anything other than the shipped OS and could somehow initialize a WM6.x boot.

Well how come we have been able to port Android? One big reason is that google and any company that releases an Android device have to release the source code per the GNU license. Neither WP7 nor WM6.x are open source, that's why we're having a damn hard time trying to even port WP7 to the HD2. You know how Cotulla even got WP7 to somehow boot on an HD2? (nevermind that nothing probably works yet, including sound, touch screen, GPU, battery drivers, etc...) He wrote a custom bootloader from scratch that can go on top of HSPL (which he also wrote) that can launch up to 8 yaffs2 partitions.

The odds of him or anyone being able to do this on a WP7 phone (which is completely different than WM6.x and locked down like orders of magnitude more) within 10 years is insanely low. Then to somehow write WM6.x drivers from scratch, I mean it's so unlikely this could ever happen. Android would be easier, and I even have my doubts about that because again, you are going to have to get at that boot-loader somehow.

Now let's take a look at another aspect. Cotulla may be the only person on the planet who could even dream of doing this, and I guarantee this would be the last thing he would try. Who is going to try to do this? Why would anyone want this? Just buy an HD2!

the HD2 IS a WP7 phone that runs WM6.5.x AND Android. It has like the exact same specs as the HD7, actually better specs because it has 1GB ROM which means you can boot two, maybe 3 operating systems from NAND!

Re: HTC 7 Pro with WM 6.5.3 on it?

these points are all well and good for gsm users. I still see a high demand for pre7 on cdma.

GSM/CDMA makes no difference, it would be just as hard to port or probably even harder on CDMA

I agree. Don't want to switch carriers just for this. I have a great plan and dont want to loose it. And there indeed is a HIGH demand for that and also if we could port WM6.5.x to Evo as well ;]
