Windows Mobile 6.1 on HTC Apache??

Posted in General I.T, Mobile, Windows Mobile 6.1 by Ratnakar Garikipati on April 17, 2008

Thanks to PPC geeks, I just managed to install Windows Mobile 6.1 on the old HTC Apache.

 

It’s relatively a simple process – download the ROM Kit onto your PC from the PPC Kitchen’s site (http://ppckitchen.org/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=44:ppckitchen-released-apache&catid=1:latest-news) , get the updates, open up the default project file for your device, pick and choose the OEMs that you want on your mobile including the skins, wallpapers etc, connect your PPC to your PC, compile and run the project.

 

The amazing part is I neither had to do any registry hacks to connect it up to the exchange nor install the certificate to the root manually. Also, I realised that the device is much faster and stable.
