    i have been trying all day to find this update to no avail.

    can anyone give me a link or load the ROM on here? it looks like it was only available till 1/31/08 and i didnt realize that it was going to be time sensitive :\

    any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    xda-developers had it, but I have no idea what's going on. It seems that their site is down. I sure hope they have not gone for good like MotoModders...

    The Schaps ROM looks pretty good. Im looking at getting a refurb 8525. I have to buy my phones outright and im to cheap for a tilt.

    The 8525 is still a great device, and with a cooked ROM you should be very pleased with it.

    I did it I broke down and bought a Tilt. I was looking around the net as used 8525 and I planned on modding it. I checked around and from Jay saying he got better deals at the ATT dealers I started to check around and a local dealer sold me a Tilt for $420 out the door and even thru in a 1GB memory card and no sales tax. I would have been over $500 at the ATT COR.

    Unfortunately now I have to figure out how to unlock so it will work with my Dobson SIM, but I have been reading up on the 8525 and Tilt on XDA so it doesnt sound to bad.

    My only complaint is for the money the Tilt should come with a Belt pouch or something to protect it, that and a Y cable would be nice.

    I was alittle bummed about the field test app, its show a bunch of info but doesnt say what tower your on, just the freq, codec and hand off parters.

    Its a sweet device, I played with the iphone and until Apple makes a actually qwerty keyboard to supplement the screen the tilts got it beat.

    i can make the tilt into a iphone in about an hour.

    Using Dopod 838 Pro, still the same variant name as 8525 had (HTC Hermes), now using WM6.1 ROMs and no, xda developers were still alive. :)
