Phew! What a lot of options! I wanted to try and cover most variations of owning or not, along with broken, modified and virgin.

I don't have the need to modify my 6000 because it isn't my primary pda. It is already great for what I use it for, which is my "instant on" web machine. It is constantly within my home's wifi range. The only thing I would like to improve is the usb keyboard layout. The guylhem rom is supposed to fix that, but I'm unsure of its stability. If drwowe's cg rom addresses this, then that will complete my needs for the 6000.

As far as keyboards go, I prefer the 760's, the 3100's, the 6000's and then the 5500's last. The 760 is just missing the Dpad, but I don't play games as much and so the directional keys are fine enough. The 6000 and 5500 just don't cut it mainly because I hate hitting the fn key to input numbers.

See my keyboard post at the end of the keyboard thread in the 6000 hardware forum. Building on what was already posted, I am using keyhelper with my own xml mapping file (url in my post) and I have no keyboard problems when using usb keyboards. I switch back and forth between the mapping for the built in keyboard and the usb keyboard with a simple command line entry also documented in my post.
