Windows Mobile 6.1 for Samsung SCH-i760

Good news for i760 owners: Windows Mobile 6.1 update is now available.

This update fixes one major annoyance: support for SDHC cards with more than 2GB. I use my i760 as a music player and it’s kind of tough to have to fit my music selection into 2GB (or 4GB if you use the hack but didn’t want to use a hack).

Some features of note in WM 6.1:

  • Support for SDHC cards  beyond 2GB. 8GB cards seem to be working fine for people.
  • Threaded SMS reader.
  • View YouTube videos (m.youtube.com).

Verizon SCH-i760 Upgrade Tool

A word of warning:  the upgrade utility provided by Verizon/Samsung looks like a major piece of rushware. Many people reported no problems with the upgrade, but others reported of bricked phones, partially upgraded phones, and having to try the upgrade process multiple times to get it to work.
