Custom WM6.1 on my HTC Touch Dual Best Thing Ever

I got sick of that clunky WM6 that was stock horribly slow and unresponsive

You'd think a 400Mhz CPU could handle it easily, i just tried my hand at custom ROM andwow amazing honestly its 2-2.5 times more responsive

Plus the bonus of removing the Telstra crap was great

Not sure if this treads on any forum rules, (but you can get stock roms that are clean direct from HTC so i think its cool apart from being risky)

Anyone else had the joys of going custom firmware?

Anyone tried Android?

I've run Android on my TyTN2, brielfy. It's neat. :)

I ran a custom WM6.1 on my TyTN2, that's on it's way to the new owner right now. It's brilliant, fast, and has NOTHING on it. Not even HTC or Microsoft stuff. Barebones, thats it, you build your own OS from there. :)

I'm currently using the Niki Project V2 rom from XDA dev's. I did briefly cook a barebones rom for myself, but honestly, it was more trouble than it was worth (I use certain bells and whistles constantly).

The one thing I would suggest is trying out SPB Mobile shell on your dual. After installing that I could never go back to basic WM6.1 layout. Just no way.

My current layout on my dual looks (roughly) like:
http://aa.1asphost.com/Khrushchev/crap/Mobile%201.bmp
http://aa.1asphost.com/Khrushchev/crap/Mobile%202.bmp
http://aa.1asphost.com/Khrushchev/crap/Mobile%203%20blur.jpg
http://aa.1asphost.com/Khrushchev/crap/Mobile%204.bmp
http://aa.1asphost.com/Khrushchev/crap/Mobile%205.bmp

I've changed the background and the clock to different looks, but the layout stays the same.

Sounds interesting. Might have to see if it's possible on my iMate 9502. Once I get it repaired :(

I used to have a cat and a dog on the contacts screen.

They used to fight too much though, so I moved the dog elsewhere.

Why don't you give me some love, I've taken shitloads of drugs, I'm so tired of never fixing the pain. Valium said to me I'll take you seriously, and we'll come back as someone else.

Bitch has a 9502? There should be a 6.1 on it.

I tried cooking a ROM for my Blackjack, but I stopped because of the rather high risk of killing it.

The ONLY fuel saving benefit of this product, is that the car expends less energy to accelerate, because your wallet is lighter.

Hardly. Just HardSPL it, and you're going to have to do something really dumb to brick it :)
