What are you talking about? This ROM does not flash any PRLs. You can use whichever one you want, google search Corolad PRL.

I'v had this on mine for a day now no issues. put radio http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=379556 On and now it seems to lock up turn off and do crazy random things... About to redo 6.5 as I like it and if not ill look for the old 1.12 radio and try with that again. Love it though! easy to get metro settings on and working!

So is there anything specific I need to do to get Verizon working? Do I just install the MMS cab from another thread, will I have to customize the data dial, etc? I've moved on to the TP but am thinking about giving this Apache to a friend and I'd like to bling it up for him. :p I'll probably install this anyway and just find out, but if you have the info handy to whip up a specific ROM that'd be cool.

Any chance of a Verizon rom?

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
So I installed this on my Verizon xv6700 and it worked just fine, including data. So no reason to need a specific ROM I guess unless you want Verizon apps.

Yeah, and those apps can still be found in the extended ROM. They are useless though, they're just a way to charge you more money.

Ok, my data connection will not work. It has the data connection option blanked out. Anyone have a secret to making this work?

Thank Scott

Hi. I'm guessing you meant to say distorted? Anyhow, did you hard reset when finished? Have you tried to soft reset since then? Feel free to send me a P.M. If you have any other problems.

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Has anyone gotten this RUU to work from Vista 64-bit?

I followed the guide at Modaco about downgrading WMDC's drivers but I can't get that to work either. I downloaded the VistaRUU zip in that thread and rebooted Vista into the special unsigned driver mode but when I try to update the drivers, it always says 'this folder does not contain a compatible driver'.

Anyone have any suggestions for a 64-bit install?

Edit: This is a Verizon Apache with 1.02 bootloader. I made sure the phone was in bootloader before attempting any flashes or 'driver downgrades' and made sure USB connections was unchecked.

Edit 2: Nevermind I just gave up on 64bit and found an old XP machine to do it on.

Excelent rom no errors :)

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
I get the "Error 150: ROM Upgrade utility error" trying to flash a VX6700 w v1.02 Bootloader under WinXP Pro. Any ideas, please, would be appreciated. I have read this whole thread to no avail. I should add that my radio is, I think, fried (R NONE on boot screen). I tried the ROM update as is. I, also, tried changing the RUU.conf file from:
[RADIO_TYPE]=2 ---> [RADIO_TYPE]=0
[RADIO_FLAG]=2 ---> [RADIO_FLAG]=0

but this had no affect


UPDATE: Never mind; I found the problem - there was an idiot at the controls :oops: I'm too embarrased to admit what I did wrong (even for a newbie and his first ROM flash).

THANKS PDAJ. I'll check out WM6.5 tomorrow when I'm a little fresher. Now anyone have any idea on how to resurrect the radio in this now PDA ](*,)

oldpueblo 09-01-2009 12:43 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Have you tried just flashing a different radio? The Touch Pro section has multiple radios for the Touch Pro, I wonder if the Apache also has some radios somewhere you can re-flash.

ffresh 09-01-2009 11:52 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
I did attempt a flash upgrade of the radio, previously, to v1.43 but it gave me an error code
http://drop.io/apache143

I forget which one right now, either 120 country code or maybe 115 wrong update for my phone (I think)


UPDATE (9/1/09): I tried the radio ROM Update again, in case I had erred as I did when trying to update the phone ROM - and I had - the same idiot had been at the controls :oops: However, this time it gave me the proper error code rather than the self-induced one. The error was ERROR 114:RADIO ROM UPDATE ERROR

I suspect that this is because I have a fried radio (hardware). I suspect this because on the boot screen it says R NONE. Anyone have any ideas or comments? I'm open to any and all. :scratch: Thanks!

love the ROm. thanks. only problem is i cant get the MMS to work, says that the originator address cannot be found.. HELP??

oldpueblo 09-01-2009 08:44 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
You probably need to install an MMS cab for your carrier since this ROM is carrier neutral, that's my guess. There's probably one floating around the other ROM threads.

Very nice, flashing right now. Any chance of a Sprint version? If so I just may un-retire my apache.

What seems to be the problem? I have a Sprint branded HTC 6700 (PPC 6700) with this ROM and it works great. Maybe we can provide some support?

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
No problems it runs fine, I asked that while I was flashing so I wasn't sure on compatability yet. I can't say everything works as my apache isn't my phone anymore, but I've been thinking about going back to it, normal phones bore me after my apache.

lanteau 09-07-2009 02:48 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
I'm on verizon and this ROM seems to be working okay, but if I dial #DATA or *611 or anything I hear a "Hi! Thanks for calling Alltel!" message. Is this a result of this ROM? Do I need a Verizon specific one or what? I'm also having trouble receiving text messages with it.

EDIT: It also seems like *228 is dialing Alltel's programming, not Verizon's

pio_masaki 09-08-2009 08:48 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
just tried to re activate my apache now it wont accept their programming (##msl#) anymore. Can someone verify this working on theirs?

Edit: Nevermind, they just needed to enter the MDN and MSID, I called in after going into ##778# and pretended I was in whatever menu they wanted, all worked out. Still dunno what happened to the ##MSL# command, though. Treats it like a regular phone number.

PDAPhoneJunkie 09-09-2009 02:13 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
MSL codes don't work with Sprint if you're on any WM6/6.1 custom ROM. Been a known issue since the early days. Always flash to a WM5 official ROM before activating then go to custom, for a troubble free experience.

pio_masaki 09-09-2009 10:29 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Ah ok, I had thought to flash back to a stock or at least WM5 ROM, but decided just playing along with the rep would be easier then cooking, flashing, then re cooking and re flashing when I could just do the info myself.

Yeah. I never have used Sprint so I can't comment there, but I would do something simular. I always played dumb or fool the reps.

pio_masaki 09-10-2009 09:19 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Yeah, it seems odd that I keep acting like a complete idiot about what they want me to do, yet they don't seem to care/wonder why or how I ended up in the EPST menu when I supposedly don't know what ##MSL# is supposed to do.

Or how the sprint store guys ("Yeah I know this phone I had one!") don't notice the WM 6.5 running on it. They even had the phone info up (with WM 6.5 plastered right up top). Or custom boot screens...or how the oldest device in the store has a windows version newer then the newest device in the store.

Anyways, back on topic. Is WM 6.5 faster then WM5? It feels that way. Maybe a little faster then 6.1 too, but uses some more ram.

PDAPhoneJunkie 09-12-2009 01:31 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
I haven't had an Apache for months so i can't really comment. But, in my usage the custom 6.x ROMs are always faster than the stock WM5 ROM. The old Kirvin CS 3.5 was a pretty good WM5 ROM, but with these newer builds I prefer them just because of more functionality and speed. Eventually the apache won't handle the newer OS as they continue to use more resources. And there isn't much to begin with. I do love the Apache though... one of the most solid devices, I have tried to brick it and have failed.

pio_masaki 09-12-2009 10:40 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Well right now I have my HTC performance thing at 624, and after running for the last 36 hours with normal usage (some calender, file manager, music, phone calls and texts) I still have around 22.4 MB ram free after using task manager and oxio to clean it up a bit, it seems to hover around there after any usage. After a fresh boot I see 25.3 usually, but that lasts about 7 minutes lol. 6.1 I would see 28 after a fresh boot and after cleanup it usually had around 24 on my builds. The start menu is very smooth, if not slightly odd to get used to the inertial scrolling on a resistive touch screen (I'm used to my iTouch's capacitive), but gives silky smooth scrolling, only PIE gives me any kind of lag, and thats only when scrolling while loading the page. Very nice quick build. (If you couldn't tell, I recommend it =P)

PDAPhoneJunkie 09-12-2009 02:21 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Yeah it's kinda hard to get used to the screens on a PPC if you're comming from any Apple device...

pio_masaki 09-12-2009 05:50 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Naw I've used PPCs since casio released their first WM device, like uh...9 years ago or something, then I had toshiba's first release, then 2 apaches, so I'm used to the screen to a point, but I got spoiled with the itouch screen and just got out of touch with the resistive screen of the apache, I'm getting better with it again. Do any of the newer HTC screen run cap screens or are they still resistive? Like the touch pro maybe?

PDAPhoneJunkie 09-13-2009 12:12 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Not yet. Windows Mobile 6.5 does not support it therefore it's a waste for them to use it. WM7 will however, which will included the cap touch screen.

lanteau 09-13-2009 01:13 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Is there anyway with this ROM I can prevent the phone from connecting to the network for data but still be able to connect to receive MMS? Right now I select My Work Network in connections and that doesn't allow any data connections even MMS. I'm on Verizon and have a Pay Per Kb data plan so....you get the point.

oldpueblo 09-13-2009 02:33 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Iphones arent designed to be used with styluses (styli?), WinMo phones try to cater to stylus and finger.

pio_masaki 09-13-2009 03:03 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
I know, they have capacitive screens like I said earlier, never mentioned using a stylus on it =P IMO the cap screens are much more user friendly at the cost of screen space for larger buttons and text, which i was fine with on the touch.

lanteau set it to ask before connecting and it will stop connecting on its own

oldpueblo 09-13-2009 10:31 PM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Yeah I meant I believe that's why WinMo don't have cap screens. :p Last I checked cap screens don't jive with stylus very well. As much as I like finger work, sometimes a stylus is just better for some things and I'll take the lesser screen type for that reason personally.

pio_masaki 09-14-2009 04:46 AM

Re: PDAJ's Clean WM6.5 ROM 4 Apache
 
Well I guess the cap vs resist screen types comes down to personal preference. I know I prefer cap screens for alot of scrolling type menus, where the stylus with the resistive screens shine in smaller more detailed environments. But I'm afraid in the end the cap screens will likely end up dominating in the coming years, with their costs coming down and the iphone/touch showing the general user community is more in sync with that type of interface. Now, wether or not MS can actually get a UI put together that works on the first try has yet to be seen, as I kind of doubt it, really. Apple does make very good, fast and friendly GUIs. I think WM 6.5 is a step in the right direction, it flows nicely with the new start menu and performance is very decent even on aging hardware like the apache, I could only imagine what it must be like on the newer TP and diamonds...sigh. Of course comparing WM and the iphone/touch OS (linux based even) is comparing oranges to..erm..apples.

You made me remeber about the guide I wrote for doing that. Here it is, http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=28641. I will add this to my thread with all my guides. This will do the trick, but it will only work if you have a ROM without HTC_Guardian (Apache doesn't have that only Titan and Vouge). Enjoy.
