and Gentlemen, please charge your batteries and free up a USB port on your PC.
HTC America just announced that it will provide a Windows Mobile 6 Professional
ROM upgrade for the AT&T 8525 from tomorrow, November 1, 2007 which is however
available for download already.
This ROM update is intended for the AT&T 8525 only and users should not load or
attempt to load this version on any other device (aka other HTC Hermes) as it
may cause serious issues/damage.
Also note, that at this time, Good Mobile Messaging is not supported on an
upgraded AT&T 8525 anymore. If you use Good Mobile Messaging, better not upgrade
your device at this time.
Furthermore, HTC strongly suggests that you create a back up copy of this ROM
and keep it in a secure place as all new and refurbished 8525 devices (including
those received via Warranty Exchange) will come loaded with Windows Mobile 5
rather than Windows Mobile 6.
The upgrade can be performed with Windows XP (ActiveSync) and Windows Vista
(Windows Mobile Device Center) PCs.
Cheers ~ Arne
