Question Upgrading question.....

Hey everyone, got an upgrade question about my Samsung IP-830w. It currently has WM5 AKU 2.6 (Stock from Samsung / Sprint).

I really want to upgrade this thing to at least AKU 3.0, for the bluetooth internet sharing / PAN profile. I'd love to brake into the whole WM6 arena, but what I don't know is this; can I even upgrade my phone at all?

I see lots of posts on how to upgrade a lot of the HTC flavors and most of them come with warnings like:

"For the love of god, don't even read this with another type of phone with in 10 feet of the computer or it will never work again!!11!! No, really!!"

I've also heard of some universal kitchens; does that mean what I think it means; generally works on all phones?

I guess really my main question is, is there anything that ever really stops a phone from being able to be upgraded; say aside from it not physically having enough ROM space to hold the new build, or not enough processor power to run it effectively?

I work on PC's and Servers all the time, and with them, I know that really, the worst that happens is you install a new OS and it just runs like dirt, there generally isn't anything hardware based that stops it from installing / running, but when it comes to WM OS's I don't know if that holds true.

Okay I've sense learned that the Universal Kitchens are for the HTC Universal.
I've also gotten no where with finding out if this phone can have a newer AKU applied to it.

I also understand that upgrading the phone itself isn't the issue, its the radio stack and all the other hardware drivers that have to work with the updated software.

and as far as I can tell, no one has been able to crack this phone open for updates / upgrades.

And have gotten posts from other communities that tell me that if its not a HTC you might as well give up, as no one bothers with other manufactures.

Surprising, but being that no one can, or rather wanted to I guess, figure out the 830w I'm stuck with AKU 2.6; right?
