UMTS Speed Tests AT&T WM6 Leaked ROM

Did some speed tests with the leaked WM6 AT&T ROM and UMTS on SMART.
Location: Driving Around Marikina City [my bro was driving]
Network: Smart Communications [Philippines]
Settings: Set Band to UMTS to avoid falling in and out of UMTS signal.
Testing: BBR [broadband reports] downloading 100K file [mobile speed test]

[1st test: definitely mid to low 3G speeds]

[2nd test: It dips some more here]

[3rd test: Still 3G speeds but a bit faster]

[4th test: we see a speed drop again]
It has been discussed in the forums that the 3G icon would change to an H when the device uses HSDPA. Never saw the H. I think this one is definitely location and carrier dependant. So YMMV. I think I will do the speedtests again tomorrow in V-Mall at San Juan [I have crappy UMTS signal @ home].

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
