Unofficial Windows Mobile 6 upgrade for Cingular 8525

Windows Mobile 6 Not sure if your Smartphone manufacturer is going to issue an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6? Not to worry, the hackers over at XDA-Developers have managed to develop a ROM that runs on HTC Hermes smartphones. In the US, the Hermes is sold as the Cingular 8525.

Keep in mind, this is a completely unofficial port, and involves voiding your warranty and completely replacing the operating system on your phone. In other words, if your phone is useless after the update, there's no one you can call for help.

Get it while it lasts though, word on the street is that Microsoft has asked XDA-Developers to pull all of the ROM images hosted on their site.
