New WM6.5 ROM Leak – Almost there!

We've been following these perpetual WM6.5 leaks for a few weeks now. While the early ones were not really recommended for daily use and were more experimental, this latest build brings some stability and speed to the table.

For those wanting the deets, this is build #21169. The big deal here is that it has that spanky new version of Internet Explorer 6, including those big ol' buttons shown at MWC. It's also has more icons built in, Sliding Panels are faster and overall much more stable.

Feel like trying your luck with a custom ROM? Head on over to give it a shot. Just remember that this is advanced stuff, not at all officially and you really need to know what you're doing. Alternatively, take a peek at some of the screen shots after the break, which you can now imagine running on your very own Touch Pro or Diamond ... today even!

Thanks conflipper!

Meh. The unlock screen is the only thing I want from 6.5. He're hoping someone from xda devs can create a similar unlock app.

says:

cant wait till 6.5 is released!

says:

This is absolutly fantastic , The new honeycomb looks awesome !

xd1936 says:

It looks nice, but us @XDA could develop all of this on top of 6.1 in two weeks. Q4? Seriously Microsoft?

says:

You are seriously overestimating XDA-Devs. What else? Can they make Windows Mobile 7 by the next year?

xd1936 says:

You think so?
New unlock screen? Done already.
New today layout? Done already.
Program launcher? Done, can be easily linked to show up instead of the default start menu.
New IE6? I have it now.
Finger-friendly softkeys? That's already been done too, I have it.

Anything else? ;)

xd1936 says:

Okay, so we can't make the top and bottom bars transparent. Or the wait cursor.
No wonder it's taking Microsoft almost a year to make

says:

The only thing XDA does is take leaked ROM's and tweak them for different handsets.

says:

Well I want to see WM 6.5 at launch date to see what is all about but yea there are already so many updates oof there for a more finger friendly experience on WM based phones
