Microsoft issues takedown notices, squashes popular Windows 6.5 cooked ROM

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:16PM EST

All you HTC Raphael fans out there who have been enjoying a pre-release version of Windows Mobile 6.5, it looks like the party may be over. Microsoft has put the pressure on XDA developers and they have withdrawn the links to the popular Windows 6.5 ROM crafted by Da_G. All download links, both in the original post and subsequent posts, have been removed. Thankfully, the forum has not been locked or shut down. These takedown notices however, may not be confined to just this single ROM as others who are mirroring similar ROMs have reported receiving takedown notices as well. We suppose it was only a matter of time before Microsoft put the brakes on the public porting of Windows Mobile 6.5 — at least we enjoyed it while it lasted.
