Q: Twitter Login Problems April 2011 ROMS:

A1: Backup your Twitter Registry entries and Cache folder before flashing newest ROM's. Without it you will not be able to login.

"TwitterTokenSecret"
"TwitterUsername"

Q: How do i Flash a ROM/Radio/Splash Screen/Task 29?
A1: This is a complete self-explanatory tutorial with videos.
A2: This is a simple-yet-useful guide. "Thanks to prateekgujral"


Q: I Can't Extract/Unzip the ROM after download (Need .7z extension).
A: Download the latest WinRAR release here.


Q: Can this ROM be used on a US T-Mobile HD2 with 1GB ROM?
A: As mentioned in the very first Post, yes it can.


Q: What are the Installed Apps in ROM XYZ? "Thanks to codeconqueror"
A: All ROM releases have the same app list included, except for Reference. More reading here.


Q: Are there any Mirrors to download from?
A: For current releases, the answer is No, due to the Chef's request. However, if you need to older releases, check the signatures of nrfitchett4 and Scabes24.


Q: Which is the Best Radio to use with EnergyROM?
A: There is no "Best" Radio, they seem to be location-dependent. Some have better reception but poor life and vice versa. Try out several versions until you find one that suits you best. Just make sure it is a 50 and not a 51 version (Example: 2.xx.50.xx is good but 2.xx.51.xx is not).


Q: I just want to have the Radio with extra RAM and best performance.
A: Same answer as the one above.


Q: I have the error "Unable to launch Sense" .. What shall I do?
A1: First possible solution: Read this.
A2: Second possible solution: Read this.
A3: Third possible solution: Delete the folder: "\Storage Card\Application Data", and the file "Manilafull.xml" from \Windows folder and soft reset the device.
A4: Fourth possible solution: The reason of sense crash might be either corrupted CABs, or a combination between CABs that causes a conflict. Therefore, you need to take a closer look at what you're installing, try them one by one until you figure out the CAB/conflict problem source.


Q: My ActiveSync isn't working and I get some weird errors (ex: 0x86000C2A, 0x86000C2B, 0x00.......).
A1: Start -> Settings -> Connections -> USB to PC -> Untick the "Enable Faster Data Synchronization" checkbox.
A2: Make sure you're typing your data correctly, specially the server name. Alot of us (including myself) have been there before.
A3: You may need to terminate the relationship between your phone & your PC, remove your settings from ActiveSync, hard reset, then reestablish the connection again.
A4: 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.
A5: This registry seemed to work with a couple of ActiveSync errors.

Code:
Select Code
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies]
"0000100c"=dword:00000040
- Also, Read here and here for further problems.


Q: How do I Automatically configure my Email(s) settings after every flash/hard reset?

Q: How do I Control Network Selection "Manual/Automatic"? "Thanks to **[bimmer]**"
A: Use the REG entry from this post.


Q: After a reset my Phone hangs on white screen while loading.
A: This is caused by a non compatible Radio. Upgrade to a 2.xx.50.xx radio version, which also unlocks the 576MB RAM. "Thanks to swiss420"

A: This probably occurs due to installing many apps that might cause a conflict. Before using Hard Reset as a solution, try to remove the apps you installed & check your SIM after every uninstallation to see if it's working properly again (Might require a couple of soft resets within the apps removing process though).

Q: Is it possible to Cook the XYZ app in the upcoming release?
A: NRGZ28 cooks his ROMs the way he likes it, and apps are usually being judged from different points of view (Speed, Space, Stability ... etc). If you want a way to automatically install your app, you may use XDA_UC. However, you might PM him with your app suggestion.


Q: After flashing CHT ROM, the Network operator name is displayed as Energy.
A: Start -> Tools -> CHTEditor -> Miscellaneous settings -> Other settings (all the way at the bottom) -> Custom Operator text. If you want your network name in there remove the default text so the box is empty.


Q: I'm having Random freezes while using my phone.
A1: This is a so called "White Screen of Death". What could help here is a reflash of the Radio. Just be careful to use a compatible Radio Version.
A2: Please delete "all data you have not created" from the SD card before flashing... This is because sometimes there are programs that leave registry traces on the SD and they could interfere when you re-install the apps.
A3: If you are thinking of a Hard Reset - Remove the SD card and then Hard Reset. Let it complete the whole process, and when it reaches the home screen, (give it a few more seconds) DO NOTHING.. Simply turn off the phone. Now insert the SD card and boot.
A4: As recommended earlier by NRGZ28, disable both CHT lockscreen and the second hand.


Q: The ROM doesn’t contain the original HTC Messaging client?
A: This can be downloaded from the Addons page.


Q: My Taskbar clock is not aligned in the home screen. Mostly on the GTX ROM. "Thanks to prateekgujral"
A: Go to Settings -> System -> Regional settings -> Time -> Select "hh:mm:ss:tt".
If the above format is not present, then try choosing another region, and see if its there. Confirmed: It is there in "English - NZ".


Q: My music tab loads slowly/gets stuck when the screen is locked or turned off
A1: This is a CHT Lockscreen issue. Disable CHT Lockscreen and use the traditional Windows Mobile screen lock from the CHT editor.


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 will the Next Update of ROM XYZ be released?
A: There is no point in asking this question. The updates come when they come, as there is no schedule.


Q: What happens if i ask a Repetitive question?
A: You might either get flamed, or find your question being ignored over and over again, depends on the person responding.

XDA_UC FAQ



The XDA_UC cooked in my ROMs is modified from the stock XDA_UC made by Noonski. Great addon, by the way... Noonski did a great job with this !
The version in my ROMs is trimmed down to fit the needs of my ROM series.
Some of the extra features are:

  • It will copy shortcuts (.lnk files) found in \XDA_UC\Start Menu\ to the device's start menu folder (\windows\Start Menu) in the hierarchy that it finds on the storage card. For example: Let's say you have a navigation package on the storage card, like Navigon. If you make a shortcut to the navigon.exe file as Navigon.lnk and copy it to \XDA_UC\Start Menu\GPS\ as "Navigon.lnk" then on a fresh ROM install it will copy any shortcuts it finds there to the same location on the device, so it'll end up in \Windows\Start Menu\GPS\. This works for other folders on the Start Menu as well. Just put the shortcuts in \xda_uc\Start Menu\ in the folders you will like the shortcuts to appear to, on the device.
  • It will copy a custom splash screen from \Storage Card\XDA_UC\welcomehead.192.png to \windows automatically and overwrite the one in the ROM.
  • It will copy a custom Sense background found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\sense\wallpaper_sense.png to the device and set that wallpaper as default in Sense. So rename your wallpaper as "wallpaper_sense.png" and drop it in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\sense\ and on the next ROM flash that wallpaper will become your wallpaper in Sense.
Other than that XDA_UC works as designed by Noonski and it will do the following things:

  • It will automatically import your PPCbackup (*.pib) file found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\
  • It will silently install CAB files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\
  • It will install special CAB files that require user input (such as Agreements or any type of prompt) found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\SD
  • It will silently import REG files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\
  • It will silently install REG files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\Exporter, as exported by my own Settings Exporter, ONLY if the "automatic" file is also present in that folder (and it most cases it should be, enable that option in the Settings Export application's menu)
  • It will silently import XML files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\
  • It will silently import CER files (usually Exchange certificates) found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\
  • It will silently run custom MSCR files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\
That's it, but don't forget to checkout the Addons folder and look in the XDA_UC section for tips and tutorials on how to export your email/wifi settings and various little .reg and tweaks you can add to your XDA_UC collection.

As always don't forget to check what installs automatically before reporting a problem with the ROM. Most of the time, if you notice you have a problem that nobody else is experience is because one of the cabs you dropped in the XDA_UC folder is installing automatically while you don't even think about it. Allot of People download and use these ROM's. Remember most people dont post when everything runs they only post if something does not.
