Please post your issues here since the original thread is getting way too big.

Also, please post your fixes for possible minor issues, this will help new users until I update the rom.

Do not post any thing else in this thread besides issue related stuff.


1. When InCall Partial back button is displayed. ---- Posted by KidNamedAlbert

I finally got this one fixed and is working great, I will add this to the next update.

2. Battery meter not showing correctly.

This has been fixed as well and will be included in the next update.

FAQ Section:

Read everything in this section before downloading the roms and flashing.

If you don't understand it, read it again and again until you understand.

Once your doned flashing your device double check back here again to configure your device.

I will not reply to any subjects already covered in this section.

I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just very busy with finishing up this project and also working on other projects.

Back up your phone before downloading and flashing this rom... I do not want anybody to loose their data due to flashing this rom, as the rom will erase all of your data...

How To Flash Rom

Download - HERALD-USPL-beta3

Mirror - by tiksister - rapidshare

How-To Flash the HERALD-USPL-beta3:

Download and extract both files.
Place the extracted OTP v7.1.nbh into the Herald-uspl-beta3/RUU folder.
Move the entire Herald-uspl-beta3 folder to the root of the c:\.
Follow the simple readme file.

Break down of how to flash this rom:

Then follow these steps:

II. How do I flash an NBH file?


Step 1. Download Herald-USPL-Beta3.

Step 2. UnZIP the file into a folder on your Desktop. Let's call it "MyFirstROM" for simplicity's sake. Notice that there is a folder called RUU within this folder now. Keep that in mind.

Step 3. Download your NBH file and unZIP or unRAR it into that RUU folder. Make sure that that NBH file ends up in the RUU folder, not within a folder inside the RUU folder.

Step 4. Place your phone into flightmode.

Step 5. Go back to the MyFirstROM folder and then run USPL.exe

Step 6. Follow the directions on the screen. EXACTLY.

* Your screen on your cell phone will go white around the 75% part of the "second step" now.
* ActiveSync will LOOSE its connection.

Step 7. One step 3 on that black window, the RUU flasher will pop up. Just follow the steps.

That's it. :) Welcome to the flasher's world.

Instructions by Ivanmmj


If your device is already HARD-SPL read the following link before flashing.



Disable Random Access and Enable Scrolling

With random access you must do the following to enable contact scrolling.

Click on the contacts button at the lower right hand side of the screen.
Click on the Menu button
Click on Options
Uncheck "Show alphabetical index
Click on the ok button to exit

Now I know the following will sound strange but it will enable scrolling in the contact menu.

Repeat the following steps again, and the random acess bar on the right handside will go away and scrolling will work again.

Click on the Menu button
Click on Options
Uncheck "Show alphabetical index
Click on the ok button to exit

If you want to enable random access, just go back and uncheck the "Show alphabetical index"


How to turn off QuickMenu


It will prompt you with "Exit QuickMenu?

Choose yes and it will not startup again even after a reboot.

Things to do after flashing your device:

Network Wizard

Go to \Start\Settings\Connections\Network Wizard

Choose your location and provider, do not reset the device when prompted.


Go to \Start\Settings\Connections\Connections

Once completed save and exit

Just tried the M2DC theme manager on 7.3 Std, with a renamed .zip file to .m2dct file (specifically the KnobiSkin from the M2D skin thread).

First time, it locked up. M2DC continued with spinning icon until I forced a reboot. Touchflo was off after reboot, and after enabling it everything appeared to be the same.

Second attempt, I disabled Touchflo from today before applying the new theme. Got the "Applying Theme" prompt. After M2DC closed, I reactivated touchflow and new theme was applied.

Simple instruction for use of M2DC Themes on OTP 7.3:
Find a skin you like, download the zip file (not the cab),
Rename file to .m2dct,
Copy new file to the themes directory of the M2DC install directory,
Disable touchflo in Today settings
Start M2DC,
Go to themes tab (the first time it will back up the default theme),
Click the new theme then apply,
Restart touchflo.

Alternate for creating themes from skin CABs:
Run M2DC first, let it make the DefaultThemeBackup.m2dct file, Close M2DC.
Run the CAB skin of choice.
Rename DefaultThemeBackup.m2dct to OriginalTheme.m2dct (or anything else with same extension).
Rerun M2DC. It will detect no DefaultThemeBackup.m2dct and will ask to back up again. Let it make new backup. Close M2DC.
Rename new file to the name of the new theme.
Repeat for each skin CAB you wish to convert to m2dc theme file.

Note: The M2DCT files can be large (over 3Mb, 660 files backed up). Best to do this only if M2DC is installed on a large Storage card.

Note 2: Several times M2DC appeared to freeze when applying or backing up themes. It looks like it has problems if touchflo is not off prior to running. It does try to deactivate touchFlo then reactivate when done, but it doesn't appear to work flawlessly yet. It is better to deactivate the Today plugin before running M2DC on this ROM build.

Note 3: New mods to theme support in M2DC released today (Sept 30)

Using 7.3.1

1) Activesync is always on. Even after turning it off it restarts in background after some time.
2) Battery status icon on home page always shows full. Had to install a third party battery meter to show correct status.

Since this thread popped up i guess the issues i have that are notable.

1. activesync always re-opens im aware of a reg change that is possible to stop this but haven't been able to find it yet.
2. that back button when calling is REALLY annoying lol, someone needs to get/find a fix for that.
3. battery bars are inaccurate, i used one of the first things kidnamedalbert suggested and it works, until i soft reset the phone then it doesnt.
4. weather back round was first not alligned correctly, but it fixed itself after an install and uninstall of the feng shui theme.
5. still completely usable and i love this rom a lot

The fix that I have done:

* Using vistahide for battery status. Remove the today screen battery status icon using Schaps advance configurator.

What I can't fix:

* Half of backspace button is shown on call status screen. However if I lose the signal (happens very often in my apt ), the backspace button does not show.

Customizations, which may be useful for a few:

* Install vjbrisk to redirect calendar to thumbcal. After installation, rename vjbrisk.exe to calendar.exe, and rename a thumcal shortcut to vjtarget.lnk, then post the new calendar.exe and vjtarget.lnk in the \windows folder to redirect calendar to thumbcal.

* Reinstall newest google maps to main memory. It simply works after reinstallation.

I am having the landscape problem also, if it does flip to landscape it is cut off. Most the time it won't even flip!

I am having a problem with the Device lock, after a reboot the device lock works fine but once i unlock it...i can not lock it again. Which sucks because if i try to take it out of the belt clip when i am getting a call it always pushes the call to voicemail!

I was just about to search for these issues when i seen this new post. I'm going to search now...maybe someone from here will be in that search with the answers =)
