Apologies if this question has already been answered, but what is the preferred driver to run on a phone that is listed on the Celio site as a WM6.0 phone (Sprint Mogul in this case) -- but that has been upgraded with the official HTC upgrade to WM6.1? Should I run the Mogul 6.0 driver, or should I pick a 6.1 driver like the Sprint Touch or TyTnII beta 6.1 driver? Or does it even matter? :)

If you use the auto download I believe it will install a generic 6.1 driver.

At least it seemed to on my Treo 700wx running 6.0 (before Verizon released the 6.0 upgrade).

We're switching away from the auto downloader now so people with unsupported phones can try various drivers and find something that may work for them. Go to the install page and chose the driver for the WM 6.0 Mogul and you should be fine. Check back in two to three weeks and you may find a Mogul 6.1 driver, but we don't expect there to be many differences.

Thanks Colin! Side note: I guess I could be interpreting the install page incorrectly, but it *appears* as though most of the drivers are not phone-specific anyway. In other words, when I mouse over the links for the various phones and 6.0/6.1 drivers, many/most of the links seem to point to the same filename (RFP6_1.3.29.3060.CAB). I could be reading that wrong, but can you confirm whether most phones really just use the same CAB or if these links really download different cabs? For example, if I download, say, the AT&T Tilt 6.0 driver and then the Treo Pro 6.1 beta driver -- the files I receive are byte-for-byte identical. So I guess that begs the question, are *any* of the 6.0/6.1 drivers, even "beta," actually any different? :)

You’re right in that we don’t actually publish a separate driver build for each phone and ROM version (if you count everything up there’s only like 5 or 6 on the install page right now and most are linked to multiple phone models (pretty much broken down by Touchscreen vs. non-touchscreen and WM5 vs. 6/6.1 however, that doesn’t mean that phones not on the supported list will work with one of the .cabs (although some do). As we test and support new phones, each of the .cab builds on that page is updated to include code compatible with the officially supported phones.

The key is to look at the 1.xx.xx in the .cab file name. Right now we’re on build 1.3.29 and when we announce additional supported phones and/or bug fixes, all of the .cab file names will change to the new build version of 1.3.whatever it will be.

We always will make an announcement when a new build is released (it will only maybe be once a quarter at the most) so anyone that’s interested can go download the latest driver for their phone.

I’ll post the news here of updates or you can register for our newsletter at http://www.celiocorp.com/contact/
