UPGRADE: HTC releases Windows Mobile 6.1 ROM upgrade for the Touch Cruise and Touch Dual

After HTC released a couple of Windows Mobile 6.1 ROM upgrades for its carrier partners, HTC now also released the long awaited 6.1 ROM upgrade for its own HTC Touch Cruise, but also for the HTC Touch Dual (a Windows Mobile 6.1 ROM upgrade I haven't expect anymore).
Beside the typical Windows Mobile 6.1 enhancements and fixes like threaded SMS, recipient auto-complete, Direct Push improvements enhanced Internet Explorer Mobile browsing, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection setup simplification and improved stability of Video call functionality, this ROM upgrade will also fix Touch Cruise typical problems incl. fixes for Bluetooth headsets, default onscreen keyboard, camera viewfinder, GPS functionalities and more.

The ROM upgrades are available in different languages from HTC's support site. A registration isn't required anymore but the serial number is required for download. The HTC Touch Dual ROM upgrade works with both device versions, the SureType-like keyboard and the phone-styled keypad.

Cheers ~ Arne

I don't believe it, how come the HTC touch dual gets windows mobile 6.1 before the HTC touch..., what is wrong with HTC ?? I can't stand waiting anymmore, it's bad enough that they gave us an update recently which was supposed to come out at christmas, but now we have to be the last ones to get WM6.1... ?? Ahhhhh, XD !

And where is the Xda Star update?

Is it possible to apply the update to an xda star (o2 Germany). Losing the o2 branding wouldn't be much trouble, I guess...  ^^

Indeed it's technically possible to upgrade an Xda star with a HTC Touch Dual ROM. However, the Xda star needs to be unlocked first that it's possible to flash it with a different ROM.
A good start to get more information how to unlock it and how to cross-upgrade is this forum here.
But a word of warning as well: It's possible to damage the device as well as the warranty is lost if the device is upgraded with a non-O2 ROM, doesn't matter if it is the original HTC Rom or not.

I have upgraded my Dopod 838 Pro to WM6.1. It's very stable, even better than the previous WM6.0 released officially by Dopod.
