HTC Titan (TNZ) Best &/OR Simplest upgrade

So, I have an old HTC Titan with WM5 lying around and saw these forums, wondered if it was worth trying. I have done a few modifications before, however i am slightly embarrassed to admit i'm a little confused here. Could someone please explain to me:
1. What is the simplest (or stablest if needed) ROM to install, full featured etc.
2. As the phone is basically retired I probably won't reconnect it to TNZ, do I still need the radio rom and to retrieve those settings? (I only want it for WiFi and apps really)

I ran Mattsm Titan 21893 for quite some time. It is a full featured Rom with tons of goodies. If you were going to use on TNZ, I believe you are going to want to find a Rom for that carrier.

Its a CDMA cell and CDMA is being retired next year, so I might just use it for wifi. That said, do I still need to flash the radio?
EDIT: Can i use a verizon/sprint/etc rom on a TNZ handset? Thanks!

Could someone pretty please direct me to a tutorial for the ESN stuff.

If your device is unlocked, you should be able to flash what you want. No, you won't need a radio upgrade to use with WiFi.

Actually - you may need to do a radio upgrade in order to flash certain roms - although I could be wrong - but seeing as your Titan has WinMo 5, if I were you I would do the stock upgrade from the HTC site first

Re: HTC Titan (TNZ) Best &/OR Simplest upgrade

Well, that is a thought too. You do need a GPS radio to flash some Roms... nice catch Cobaltikus!

Re: HTC Titan (TNZ) Best &/OR Simplest upgrade

Thanks for the help guys.
After reading up on the subject, i've finally finished unlocking and flashing the device. I quite like the mattsm rom so i'm sticking with that. One thing though, someone should make a 'noob' thread somewhere explaining terms, pitfalls and perhaps a few tutorials. I had to trawl numerous forums to find answers to various problems and the xda-developers wiki is broken, seemingly beyond repair (Only one of the titan pages, the main page, is accessible)
Anyways, now that i've put my two cents in...back to work

Well, that is a good suggestion. What questions did you have as a new user? If we had the questions that a new user is wondering, we could put together a list of answers!
