Re: [10-12-12]Tinkerbell's 21916 Apache Rom
I'm a total noob to flashing on WM devices but have knowledge of rooting and flashing Android devices. I've always loved my Apache but never wanted to mod it in this kind of way. The physical keyboard on my Apache has been messed up for awhile and I just ordered a replacement device and now I'm very interested in putting something better on my beloved 6700. Will this ROM have a n improvement in battery life/performance over the complete Verizon stock? Forgive my ignorance in this area as I have been completely focused on Android.

The stock Apache Rom is almost unusable. This Rom will definitely improve the performance. Battery life should be about the same... although admittedly it has been so long since I had used the stock Apache Rom that I may have forgotten. At any rate, it will last all day on one charge if your battery is in good condition. Enjoy!!

Wow......I just flashed this ROM a few hours ago and I must say it is VERY sweet! After using the Apache for years on the stock ROM, this breathes a whole new fresh life into my beloved 6700. The UI is somewhat foreign to me and was thinking about putting SPB Shell onto this like I did on my stock HTC 6800. Would installing that shell app be deterimental on battery life? It doesn't seem to affect the 6800. I only use these devices as PDAs, they are in no way, shape or form used as a phone......only light internet use via WiFi.

Maybe it's a user error on my part but the YouTube app does not connect......did they update something and it won't connect? I have verified it is connected to my router by using the IE app.

Thanks so much for your work! :)

I would try the HTC Home interface and see if you like that first. If not, go ahead and load up the SPB Shell. The SPB will use up some of your valuable resources though. As to the YouTube app, I will check into that. Thanks for the heads up.

I did actually try the HTC Home interface and it is quite suitable. It's funny that this device out performs much newer devices and with this ROM I have really noticed an improvement with performance and battery life!

What's up with YouTube? Is it a user error on my part? :)

No, they have long ago dropped support for windows mobile. I think I have a working cab somewhere here...

It's not that big of a deal.....I have multiple Android devices which can utilize YouTube :)
