My Experiences with WM5 ROM on HTC Typhoon

Sunday, July 23, 2006

I have been using my Typhoon for quite some time now,one and a half year to be precise.To be honest,I loved my Typhoon more than any other phone I used till date but that soon died away with the release of Magneto a.k.a Windows Mobile 5 ROM enabled phones.I was desperate to try this latest innovation on my Typhoon but in vain.I managed to lay my hands on a 'so-called' wm5 ROM but I heard that there were many flaws associated with that ROM!!

I kept on researching for a far more compatible ROM on my Typhoon untill I laid my hands on Ronswens' WM5 ROM v4.0.I had to perform a ROM backup 'cos Krome guys would not provide me a ROM to download @ Krome.com.au I loved the WM5 ROM on my Typhoon more than anything else. After a week's usage of this ROM,Ronswens released an enhanced version of wm5 ROM;v4.2.This version blends perfectly with my Typhoon.

Few of my observations with this splendid ROM ::

1)This ROM is cooked from a leaked version of the Magneto which had a problem with memory management (Memory Leaking).

2)Soon after I reboot the phone,I'm left with 9.25 MB of free RAM left.This free RAM goes on decreasing while you use so many apps that are installed on your phone.To get the RAM back to healthy levels,you need to use CeleTask(Long Press Home) -->Menu-->5-->3 (free memory).

3)Camera application is inherited from WM2003 ROM,so ailry good quality of pictures!!Wanna check the quality of Pics :: www.kirankonathala.com

4)I have compiled a list of Apps which are compatilbe with wm5 enabled Typhoon.Check them out here.

5)Battery backup after installing WM5 is quite good too.I have a full one day's backup even after general use of GPRS,CAM,Calls,...

6)I can now use Opera 8.60 (ppc version) for downloading stuff directly to the Mini SD card.

7)A clean and new GUI with WM5!!The all important Windows Media Player 10 rocks on my typhoon!!

8)I use my typhoon as a bluetooth modem.The only problem with this is it sports Error 777 when I try to dial it.Resolution::Toggle bluetooth using Bluetooth toggler (found in accessories).If it doesnt' work,we need to restart the phone.It should definitely work now!

Bottom Line :: WM5 v4.2 is still due from Ronswens.It is supposed to be A2DP enabled ROM.Eagerly waiting for it.....
