Is it possible to upgrade the OS of Windows Mobile?

Currently I am using htc with Windows Mobile 6. So, is it possible to upgrade it to Windows Mobile 6.1 or new WM 6.5? If yes, please provide link to the articles related to this issue.

"I recommend XDA-developers because it's focused on HTC phones and offers choice between different types of ROMS. You can upgrade from WinMo 6 to 6.1 or 6.5, but the newer ROMs require more RAM and possibly faster processors, so performance isn't guaranteed on older types.

Note that this will probably void your warranty, but especially if it's an older phone I wouldn't worry about that too much. Also note that you should follow the guides as good as possible in the beginning, because else you might ""brick"" your phone. Off course that's often fixable, but it sure ain't fun.

This Wiki page refers you to all the available ROMs for your type of phone and probably also has a guide on how to do it."

Sprint made available a WM6.1 update for their Mogul, made by HTC. It installed easily, but I was glad I did it right after purchase because the result was a brand new phone except for the service setup. I haven't gone looking for anything newer because (despite rumors to the contrary) I really am in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" camp for devices I actually depend on day to day.
