Hi all. New to the tp2 threads. I'm recommending the tp2 to a non tech friend @ t-mo. She wants a slider so no HD2 for her. I've searched around here & need some help. Are there any serious issues with the upgrade to 6.5 (she's keeping the phone stock)? Also, same question with regard to the mr1 & mr2 updates. Perhaps some links to a few helpful threads? This place is huge!
Thanks

Re: Upgrade / update issues?

The one thing that she may miss on the 6.5 rom is the task manager, but there are tons of options..

There are a ton of things that you can do to the stock rom to make it run smoother, check out the thread in my sig. works for all the stock 6.5 roms

Re: Upgrade / update issues?

I can't see what carrier you're on, but if your friend is gonna be on T-Mo, keep in mind that's a GSM device, and many of the ROM's, etc here won't work, as many are for CDMA, not GSM. You will need to specifically look in the GSM update/rom's forum. And isn't the MR2 update for VZW? If so, that's not gonna work on the T-Mo TP2.

Re: Upgrade / update issues?

i thought MR was for VZW only too...

I honestly ran sprints 6.5 for the longest time.. it was the Most stable by far.. the minute i switched to custom 6.5 roms same old problems existed.. and i cant seem to leave my phone alone now for even a whole day without feeling like something needs to be fixed still...

the only thing i can think of off hand that your friend may not want to do is CHT 1.8.5.. it does slow things down on some devices, depends on your setup i suppose... but older versions of CHT are still good.. like CHT 1.7.1 instead maybe..

just my observations

Re: Upgrade / update issues?

If speed is a factor, you should consider flashing a Sense 2.1 ROM. Mighty Sense 2.1 Final ROM is so far the best I've used. Just my $0.02

Incase you need the link:
http://www.lilrico.com/MightyROM/Tou...umW_021010.exe

Make sure you install HSPL on first.

Thanks for the quick & helpful response neudof. Great thread too. And yeah gang, MR1 & 2 are Verizon. So the upgrade to 6.5 is it then on T-Mobile, nothing else official, right?
