X1 to get 6.5 love officially?

Posted On: Tuesday, September 08, 2009

itje at XDA-Forums has posted the following on a thread:

Nice little treat for you guys.


The Build in the rom is a older 6.5..but what is important is:
-New XIP (real x1 nk)
-Some drivers from x2
-New netcf 3.7 (final)

If that is true, can we expect the new home panel to make its way to X1 officially as well? What do you think?

    Not sure about the new home panel but it's still fantastic news if true. X1 was released just a "few" months ago so I'll appreciate a major update. 8)
    Come on SE... Just do it!

    Itje's new ROM is good. Real good!
    Been testing it for a day now.
    For a 6.5 its pretty quick. Ive noticed some of my games much zippier. Used to get some lag, but very rare now.
    The touch flo he has used is pretty snappy, too.
    Coupled up with the SPB 3 Panel, Garmin XT in the Navigation panel and the latest Core Player, my X1 is more complete than its ever been.

    Happy, John

    I still cant see SE officialy giving this as a free update to X1, though.
    There is not sufficient difference to make X2 succesful, otherwise.

    I would think it cant be too long before someone gets there hands on the new panel stuff.
    Once that happens, it will be ported and made available at your favourite XDA website. No fear.
