CDMA Treo Pro finally Gets Custom ROMs; WM6.5.1 Now Available!

 

Well it only took about 12 months but the Palm Treo Pro  (full review) finally caved in today and had its finicky ext ROM unlocked thanks to cmonex and the first custom ROM by CFay, which just happens to be one of the latest versions of WM6.5.1 (Build 23409). 

CFay has also released a "clean" WM6.1 ROM, stripped of bloatware and tweaked for style and performance.

The Palm Treo Pro, designed by Palm but built by HTC, has much more in common with other HTC devices than previous Treos. However, unlocking the ROM files so new ones can be rebuilt has eluded many developers so far, proving to be as tough as Motorola devices.

And since we've heard nary a peep from anyone about an official ROM update from Palm, this is probably your only chance.

Users should be warned that this is in the very early stages of development and currently *only CDMA Treos* can do this, so let the dust settle before jumping, m'kay

Get all the goodies here:

A big congratulations and thanks goes to cmonex and CFay for their hard work.  Don't forget to show them some support via donations!

PPCGeeks is always...... half the time down,,. I offered to make a donation to upgrade their servers years back but no one took me up on the offer. Ow well they are not as poor as MTDN ha ha!

Somehow I think that WM 6.5 Pro isn't going to do well on square screen devices. Those new fat buttons and menus take way too much of the limited screen real estate on a square screen.
