What is manila 2.1 and 2.5?

Another "new to this stuff" question...

What is manila? I see this referenced on many posts, and I am confused with what it actually is.

Thanks.

Re: What is manila 2.1 and 2.5?

manila 2.1 is what comes on the tp2 stock. 2.5 is a version that was designed for the hd2.

the original 2.1 is what you have on your phone now, the is a new version of 2.1 called htc sense that includes weather clock, home screen animations etc. majority of the rom previews that you see in the upgrades section are the new 2.1(htc sense) NOT 2.5 like many believe. when the carriers release their 6.5 upgrades they will most likely come with the updated version of 2.1 (htc sense)

2.5 does not support landscape in any tabs other that music and photos. that is not a bug or glitch its how it is supposed to be because it was desinged for a phone without a keyboard. the only place that this is affecting is when you are in touch flo3d everywhere else (ie: emails, word, opera etc) you will have landscape like normal

the new version of 2.1 has all the features of 2.5 excpet the shortcuts on the home sceen and some other minor cosmetic differences.

if you have more questions just ask

New Manila 2.1:

Does it hide all of the native OS GUI when running now? The builds I've seen still use the Windows Mobile GUI to add stuff like calendar items, whereas 2.5 does it in a TF3D GUI

Re: What is manila 2.1 and 2.5?

one question I have about 2.5 is there landscape for deeper functions like the txting screens? Because as far as the main tabs I could care less about landscape in anything other then those two.
