Dia Duit ROM v1.7.0 final is out

for keyboards installation see bottom keyboard note

for latest news/changes take a look here


DOWNLOAD :
  • thanks to myself for original mirror: jump



MAIN FEATURES :
  • Based on latest 2.11.70.1 (from Orange, removed Orange stuffs)
  • Diamond Manila TF3D 2.1 + new driver set from Topaz, ported some basic Leo packages, etc...
  • LZX compressed rom... 130Mb free main space after fresh installation
  • Removed the annoying Ms welcome & manual screen calibration after every upgrade/flash/hard-reset, now is pre-configured so don't take care anymore
  • sUC (aka suiller's UC) is included (detailed sUC review/instructions) with it of course all Dia Duit features: speed profile selection, automatic backup (favourite manila people too), gps profile selection, planned auto-reboot, ramdisk, mobile upx (upxlist.txt), personal tweaking (by reg files now) + all the "safe" battery/speed tweaks I collected in several years, 3/4 rows selection, mail + attachments & documents moved to "Internal Storage", etc... note: the rom is fully UC/UC2 compliant too
  • Modded smooth violet buttons in keypad, commmanager, calculator & usbtopc applications, menu enhance
  • Connection Setup is NOT included, you can find 3 versions in extra cab repository (at top page): 1st from 2.00 rom (China included), 2nd from 2.03 (China NOT present) & the 3rd is the Topaz porting; install one of them like a standard cab (put always in your CAB folder); if you install/uninstall separately remember to restart to see changes


Steps to proceed with this ROM installation (only 1st time) :
  1. before flash read here carefully all news related to sUC (because is included & active)
  2. download latest rom from one of the mirror specified at top page and look in my signature for a fast upgrade procedure
  3. after rom installation sUC will start asking you: configure general speed & GPS profiles; remove ActiveSync time change queue (stop popup every 5 min); left/right softkey configuration; CAB & CABi + REG + EXE + CPY installation/execution (as mentioned above) + upx compression phase, then choose backup method & eventually load a restore, restore previous saved Start Menu and for finish reboot to apply changes
  4. then you can re-organize shortcuts in your "\windows\Start Menu" directory to fit your needs, then run the script "backupStartMenu", this will make a copy of your "final" start menu directory, useful to preserve your original Start Menu structure (in this way it can be restored automatically on next flash)
  5. the last important folder (always under "Backup and Restore" directory) is "pimbackup", under this directory will be saved automatic pim backups during night (contacts/sms/call logs/et cetera)


some notes to know :
  • I don't like to get out every time the stylus, in my way the phone should be easily used with just one hand, so this rom is designed, where possible, to be used just with fingers: vertical bar is fatter, icons are more spaced & system font is bigger
  • pimbackup is enabled to make scheduled (automatic) backups every day at 4.00AM, remember for 1st to make a restore at 1st installation (a menu will presented at 2nd boot for this)
  • to speed up a bit the whole system & get off ActiveSync popping up every 5 minutes answer "OK" when asking to remove ActiveSync time change queue (of course ActiveSync will work normally when connected trough usb cable) & remember also to disable automatic checks (from AS application select Menu, then Schedule & put both to Manual, close tapping X & launch recover ram script... this will close automatically AS & will clean the queue)
  • about upx compression only exe files coming from cab installation can be compressed, existing exe files (cooked in the rom) can't be touched
  • I strongly suggest to upgrade your radio version too (I'm currently using 1.13.25.24, anyway find your best), 03 & 05 are really outdated, if you don't know where find new/good/tested radios download always at CAB repository (at top page or in my signature)
  • DO NOT remove the (automatic created) hibernation file "SwapImgDoNotRemove" because it's a copy of your cache, NOR remove files inside Ramdisk (the original cache) & neither remove MAIL folder under "Internal Storage\Backup and Restore" because from V05 mails are stored there
  • CAB installation is made seeking alphabetic sort, so keep it in mind when installing cabs that need a specific sequence
  • keep in mind that many cabs to work properly need to be installed into main memory (so not CABi)
  • CABi installation isn't perfect & doesn't work with languages different from ENG/USA, it work at 100% with simple cabs such as games, sometimes it fails on complex cab (license accept & various boring confirmation... such as iGO)
  • to restore the boot image (splash) to the original one (all black) simply download & install this package



special keyboard note: there is ONLY ms-keyboard as default, this because any keyboard set takes a lot of memory & registry becomes fatter, so install just the one you prefer (look always at repository below or in my signature)... so for example you can choose between FingerKeybd (very nice, download from XDA & here a simple guide to restore automatically after every flash) or Rhodium_EzInput (add Rhodium_EzEngine to have also T9 support... this T9 library works also with FingerKeybd) & above all remember that must installed during 1st setup, so don't install manually but copy your cabs in the CAB folder

WHY ALL THIS PROCEDURE?? in few words... I was very tired to re-install everything from scratch after a new installation/flash... so I thought about an easy way to have a fast & real "restore" after every flash


bye,
davide


ps: dia duit in gaelic means "good day"

no no that version isn't "newer"... that version is different because isn't native for diamond but it was adapted (from raphael if I remember well) but has some (small) bugs, the last one for diamond is 1.1.34575..., anyway there is no need to use the adapted one ver 1.2 because benchmarks speak clearly, there aren't significant speed improvements
