Windows Mobile 2005 (aka Magneto) LEAKED!

A user named Gora from xda-developers leaked what seems to me an authentic copy of a Windows Mobile 5.0 ROM, Microsoft's next mobile platform for PDAs and smartphone (Gora, you better start hiding from MS now!). The About dialog displays the following versions:

Microsoft Windows Mobile Version 5.0 OS 5.1.1700 (build 14326.0.0.0)
ROM version: 1.50f.00WWE
ROM date: 02/24/05
Radio version: 1.10.00
Protocol version 1337.18

The ROM is extracted (?) from the HTC PH10B Himalaya device. Will keep you updated!

update 1: Download ActiveSync 4 mirror 2
update 2: Download WM2005 mirror 2
update 3: Download links removed until someone tells me that it is not illegal to post them here (sorry about that guys) / Alex
update 4: More screenshots added
update 5: 1 more screenshots added
update 6: first preview is available!

Be aware that downloading this software might violate copyright in some countries!

Someone posted already his first experience:
Quote:
This is the original unpatched ROM image converted to NBF file. It would output "device authentication error". The method to fix this is explained in this forum, use search.
Before installing ROM I recommend to backup the existing ROM to SD-card. Later you can restore old ROM from SD. And you would be able to reflash 2005 after restoring.
Before flashing you should delete all files from \Storage folder. It would become a root directory of your device.

Known problems:
Unable to sync with the desktop computer over USB (needs a "RAPI" driver, patching inf file from ActiveSync 4 gives nothing), cannot sync over BT (ActiveSync "sees" the device, but disconnects immediately), tupisdin was able to sync over IR, I don't have a working IR so cannot check this.
Lots of compatibility issues with old programs. For example Qkeys is not working, after installing all SIPs disappear.
Seems that BT is extremely unstable. I was unable to create a working COM-port connection.
Backup program is taken from the old ROM and is not working. Maybe creating an empty "\Storage" folder will help.
I was unable to make a hard reset. After installing Qkeys you have to reflash old rom and then 2005 again to get a working OS.
Camera application is extremely slow.
You are unable to bind programs to "camera" and "record" hardware buttons.
Storage (root directory) size is only 14Mb, so you have to install all programs to SD-card. "Extended_Rom" folder disappears and this space is wasted. But it "returns" when you flash old ROM.

I don't recommend to use this ROM. But it is a good experience to install it and to see the benefits of 2005 OS.
Later I'll play with RAPI driver, maybe we would be able to sync over USB.

There seems to be some kind of authentication mechanism in place after you upgrade your device with the new ROM; however it doesn't seem to be very effective.

Tell us when Microsoft sends you the threatening email. No offense intended, but this has happened to people in the original forum. Watch your back, MS is watching you.

Thanks for your concern. I am going to remove the download links, Morpheus, because I still haven't figured out about the legality of providing such links (I know they are from the other forum, but still...). Better to stay clean and happy

Guys, look at the screenshot of the launcher...! It looks so, uhm, very Palm-esque! Definitely a big improvement to WM2003

Alex, I understand your concerns, but do you really think it is a problem to post links to downloads here that were not originally uploaded by you? I just came a minutes too late before you erased the links ;(

I think it all depends on where you live or where the server is located respectively. Sorry Alex if I broke any forum rules by duplicating those links...

I don't think it is that easy. I am sure if it was up to Microsoft we weren't even allowed to look at those screenshots!

Tad go to the forum where the poster leaked the ROM; you'll also find the download links there. We want to stay clean, sorry

Does anyone know if the leaked version of ActiveSync 4 also works with WM2003 SE? In fact, does anyone know what is new in ActiveSync 4?

This might be related to this thread:

If you are interested in modifying content of a ROM and/or to extract single files, you should visit this site which has a lot of custom-made tools made for this task. A more complete list of available tools can be found here.

@TadW: I am not sure what's new in ActiveSync 4, but I would hesitate installing it since it is definitely not a final version.

I'd be more interested if Microsoft or the hardware vendors are planning to offer upgrades for existing devices. If the Himalaya device can run WM2005, then I am sure e.g. the Dell Axim X50 could as well.
