Unfortunatly, if you haven't any solid idea of the culprit, it could be just about any app, tweak or reg setting (sometimes a reg setting meaning to do one thing can have a side-effect you couldn't believe, and can be 'un-fixable'....yeah, bad experience there!!) and a hard reset may be the best way to go, but try one without any restore (except PIM info) as I mentioned before, sometimes a backup from one ROM can seem fine, but cause conflicts/errors on a newer ROM.

Thank you

-edit-
So basicly, with flashing, you flash a new firmware on your phone. So tha means i can flash wm6.5 on my phone with wm6.1, or is that a complete different thing?
WM 6.5 and 6.1 are different versions of the main OS for the Omnia, kinda like upgrading your PC from Vista to Windows 7. You have one or the other, but there are ROMs for both out there. Basically look for one that suits your needs/likes. 6.5 is more finger-friendly and up-to-date, but 6.1 is closer to the old style menues and Today screens that some people are more comfortable with. As I mentioned, as long as you stick with the appropriate device ROM (i900 for you) you can flash one ROM, and if you don't like it, just flash to another. The setup time may get tedious, but once you have 'the' setup (OS + apps) you will really enjoy your device!!!!

(heck....some people get addicted to flashing and have (software-wise) a 'new' device every few days/weeks LOL!!!!)

I kinda recognize that :P
Then ill stick to 6.1. I just really needs to custimize it with skins and apps, cause the standard 6.1 is a lil boring.

Exclamation Re: Omnia problems and solutions thread!!!

This is probably a stupid question but I'm new to pocket PC's and it's the only problem I seem to be having. I just got my Omnia a couple days ago and have been trying to download apps for it yet I keep encountering the problem of it downloading it and then saying it's unsuccessful in installing the file. I know it's not a problem of the wrong format because it's a .CAB file and I'm getting the files from windows website. Any Hints?

Re: Omnia problems and solutions thread!!!

i just wanna thank those who responded before and tried to help with my issue. i'm pretty sure i figured out what caused it (no audio/vibration for sms/mms)

i'm positive it's this reg tweek:
"======================

*For those that don't want the Outlook Email panel in their messaging window, use this reg edit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Svc\Ac tivesync

Delete \Activesync and all subkeys.

Soft reset and you're good to go.


======================

i have EVERYTHING else reinstalled and all other reg edits done and everything works great now. for this edit to work i had to delete all subkeys but not the main one "Activesync" not sure why that makes it work, but if someone can explain it to me that would be very appreciated...hope that helps others

Both WM Smartphone version and WM Professional version use .cabs to install programs. Make sure you have the correct version.

Also, as you probably already know, cabs are installed from the device, rather than the pc. So, if you download it to your pc, transfer it to your Omnia before activating (selecting) the cab to install. Hope this helps!
