Novice with a diamond, a few questions

I just got my diamond last week, im in ireland and the phone is unlocked - when i say unlocked it can be used on any network.

I have omarket on the phone and have figure out how to install cab files through my pc to my phone too.

I'm running windows mobile 6.1 at the minute, can i upgrade to 6.5?
(have been finding conflicting answers to this)

I've changed the boot screen/splash screen and music using a cab file from the touch pro threads.
My boyfriend is using touch pro with windows 6.5 and i really like it. We use pretty much the same apps etc

How do you take screen shot on your phone? ISs there an app for that?
So basically can i upgrade the phone from 6.1 to 6.5? And if so how do i go about doing this.


Please dont reply saying "use search" because i already have, ive laso searched google and not having much look

thanks

Re: Novice with a diamond, a few questions

Since you are on Vodafone is your phone GSM or CDMA? If you are on CDMA then go here and read.

Then go here and install one of OMJ's ROMS, I think they are good and are WM 6.5

Screen Shots of your phone and can control your phone with your PC.

Looks like you have a GSM Diamond.
Yes, you can definitely put WinMo 6.5 on your device. I suggest you do some reading. Here is a link to the gsm upgrade forum here:

http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/gsm-diamond-development/

Here is a link to the Wiki page for the Diamond over on xda-developers:

http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index...me=HTC_Diamond

The wiki page has lots of great info.
Good Luck!!
