Q: ????

Q: My device is Omnia/Xperia (or any other than HTC HD). How can i install you Rom?? I like it a lot.

You will brick (destroy) your device. Go to the forum of your device, NRG makes ROMs for all modern HTC devices.

Q: When will the Next Update of NRG ROM be released?
A: There is no point in asking this question. The updates come when they come, as there is no schedule.
A tweeter account and following NRG is a good source of info about new roms from NRG

Q: My ActiveSync isn't working and I get some weird errors (ex: 0x86000C2A, 0x86000C2B, 0x00.......).
A: Start -> Settings -> Connections -> USB to PC -> Untick the "Enable Faster Data Synchronization" checkbox.
Make sure you're typing your data correctly, specially the server name. Alot of us (including myself) have been there before.
You may need to terminate the relationship between your phone & your PC, remove your settings from ActiveSync, hard reset, then reestablish the connection again.
Microsoft mentioned that some errors might be due to a recent faulty entry (contact, email attachment, appointment, ... etc). So, try to sync one item only (e.g., contacts). If it worked, you need to recheck your recently-added items & eliminate the faulty one.
This registry seemed to work with a couple of ActiveSync errors.

Q: How can I Revert back to Original WM LockScreen instead of the Android one?
A: Start -> Settings -> Personal -> Switch Lockscreens.

Q: The new NRGZ Chat bubble SMS conversation doesn't work, when I install the ROM, I get the classic SMS compose view.
A: Scroll to "Messaging" in sense, click all messages button. From there you can find the bubble style.

Q: When opening photos, I get a small centered picture instead of full screen.
A: That's called a thumbpic...If you have a folder that's called....thumb something on your sd card..I wll sugest for you to delete it
Solution from M_T_M

Q: My wifi connection turns on/off by it self.
A: You always use the comm manager to set on/off the radio (phone-BT-WiFi). Some times the cht switches have problems.

Q: I want to change the Language of the HTC Sense
A: Open the registry and go to the key HKCU\Mui. Change the value of the key CurLang to your country code from this MS table.
Some Country Codes
409 ---> English
408 ---> Greek
407 ---> German
410 ---> Italian
413 ---> Netherlands
415 ---> Polish
Save the registry and softreset
