Exclamation Sprint Touch Pro Rom Help

Hello I have a few questions basically I have read through thread after thread since there are like 10 million threads and there are to many that they repeat and confuse and before I do anything I want straight answers so talk to me like I'm 3.

I have the Sprint HTC Touch Pro I love the phone and want to install the best ROM possible and all the tweaks and which I know how to unlock flash and re-lock my phone already.

What I want to know is does anyone have a link to the newest and best ROM available. And then I also have a collection of cabs for my phone from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/arch.../t-453349.html but are these the newest. I have previously installed the mighty ROM but it was completely different from any phone that I have found videos that did the same ROM is it the theme that makes their phone like like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnvwKFzSy2w

I know most of you are going to read this and think I am stupid but I am just trying to get the most straight answers possible before I do anything to my phone since the last thing I wanna do is brick a $400 phone. I really like the way that a lot of the phones look in videos but they don't answer all the questions and thread after thread just become redundant.

Basically I just want the newest ROM for my phone to work great run fast and look good I don't need an extremely lot of programs on my phone if anyone would be so kind to help me I would appreciate it but if your just going to try to send me to more threads then no thanks cause I have read to many as is!

Re: Sprint Touch Pro Rom Help

HOLY CRAP!!! You can actually brick one of these phones?

I must have flashed at least 13 or 14 ROMS so far in the last week or two. And I am still in the search for the perfect "for me" ROM. And I am afraid you are in for the same faith as I am. I have found two that come close, the one I have now is Energy ROM and in 2nd place is the SsS0201 ROM The Chef of the SsS ROM will be coming out with a new version soon. But as far as the best or the newest, that will be up to you to choose, because there will be a lot of opinions about that.

Re: Sprint Touch Pro Rom Help

I've tried a good amount of roms, such as Demoliton, SsS, Mighty 4 & 5, Psyki, Silence, Silence and Mighty's Viva La Revolution, and Energy's 'phoenix' and 'magic', I'm currently on 'magic' and it's my favorite rom as of right now- it came out june 30th, so 6 days ago, oh btw since it erases all your memory when you flash just make sure u save at least ur contacts, a good program for that is PIM backup, and then since your phone will be wiped of everything it'll be a good time to just try a couple of roms and see which one you like best before adding all your personal customizations like your different cabs, whether they're applications or games, then I would also check out TSOwens's thread on custom taskbars, its a .cab application and it makes your phone look a lot better and more to your liking

Re: Sprint Touch Pro Rom Help

I've used Mighty Mike's 6.5 and 6.1 ROMS and they are very clean and good on the battery...I liked the customizations in Psyki and it's very user friendly, but text input and portrait to landscape had major delays for some reason...just tried out Super Multimedia ROM and it's great so far...ton of built-ins that I like, super fast, and decent battery life...but like others have said, it's a matter of personal opinion...some users like the cooks to put in a lot of stuff, others like lite ROMs which they can then tweak to their liking with registry tweaks and CABs...

1) Welcome to PPCGeeks

2) You should have posted this thread in the device forum, not the upgrade forum (as per forum rules)

3) I would recommend changing your username to something other than your email (just my 2)

4) In regards to opinions on ROMs you will receive several different answers, from several different people...

Talking Re: Sprint Touch Pro Rom Help

might seem like alot of reading and it is but well worth the time the cooks around here are the best but they don't know what you want,so keep on reading and you might just find the one thats perfect for you or damn close to it...as for your cabs no there are newer versions of some of them you need to use the search bar and you will find everything you need bro.

BTW, NRG just released one last night. It's not in the subject line yet, but it's available at the German mirror.

So as it's been stated a few times here, new ones come out very often. Since I started flashing my new phone, I don't think I've gone 2 weeks without a new NRG ROM being released. You seriously need to try them all. Or at least all of the ones that have been updated in the past week.

I strongly recommend flashing from your SD card. I've had a ROM or two go south on me, and having the SD card available makes for a very easy recovery.

I was in your boat a few weeks back. Feel free to PM me for suggestions and questions. I am on AIM most all day, so that would be an easy way to get back and forth.

I just want to point out (in case you are doing it) that you should not be re-locking your phone after a flash. You don't re-lock unless you have gone back to stock and you are taking it in to Sprint for service or something along those lines.

Good luck.
