Cmonex, Conflipper and the other talented hack-stars have been busy preparing the Hard-SPL for the HTC Imagio (Whitestone) over the past couple of months. After some careful testing, they were finally able to release it tonight. Accompanying custom ROMs usually flood the scene for a device soon after the Hard-SPL is released, so stay tuned to the Imagio ROM upgrades/development forums on PPCGeeks and XDA-developers for those. NRGZ28 is one of the notable chefs on-board to pump out some sweet ROMs soon.
Applying the Hard-SPL to the Imagio will allow users to flash custom ROMs. Modified ROMs often optimize performance, free up storage/program memory, remove bloat-ware, and even give users access to untapped software sometimes. They can be a lot of fun, but at the same time very dangerous. If you’re an intermediate to advanced user, who owns an HTC Imagio, and you’re ready to take the plunge to custom ROM world, head over to HTC-Unlocks and follow all instructions/warnings. You may want to follow the PPCGeeks Hard-SPL thread for a thorough discussion by Imagio users too.
Update: NRGZ28 has released the first working ROMs for the Imagio. WM6.5/6.5.x with Sense 2.1/2.5, enjoy.
Update 2: Mr. X has put out a ROM too.
Warning: tinkering with the Hard-SPL and custom ROMs will void your warranty and could also render your device useless. We’re not responsible if you happen to brick your Imagio while attempting to hack it, so please proceed with caution.
