Well, I got my PDA back. Everything works on it again, which is nice. HTC actually honoured the warranty too.
There is some software that I would like to install on it:
1) HTC has released a ROM to upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.1:
2) The capable folks over at xdadevelopers have released a 3D driver in light of HTC's lack thereof:
The CAB is available here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=430741
They are now working on 2D acceleration.
3) Manilla2D - Or HTC TouchFlo 3D for the HTC Touch Cruise - has been released:
The CAB is available from this thread:
4) PointUI Home: Pretty slick, quite useful: http://www.pointui.com/
They are releasing a new version in free/paid editions in version 2.0. The paid edition is probably going to be awesome, given the quality of version 1.5.
