This post features all the Cookie Hometab based ROMs I make.


The original ROM is the "energy" version and that's a good starting point. All the rest, are themes applied to that ROM.
They all come in two versions,
Cookie 1.8.5 and Cookie 2.0 (the ROM filename will be labeled "Cookie" and "Cookie.2.0, plus the name of the theme)

You can see more screenshots of these ROMs a couple of posts down.

The two Cookie versions look pretty similar, but Cookie 2.0 has multiple sliding homescreens/freely moveable widgets (similar to Android) and
quite a few more features and speed
.


My own 'Energy' style

  • This is the best ROM version and the way Sense should have been designed by HTC
  • Offers the biggest customization ability out of all versions. You can add/remove bars or items on the homescreen, arrange items any way you like, plus lots of extra features
  • Three built in lockscreens. "HD Mini" style, Manila style or Windows style
  • 3 pages of quicklinks with a configurable amount of shortcuts displayed
  • 3 Homescreen layouts to choose from, as seen in the above screenshots, all completely customizable !
  • Link to the original thread for this mod is here > Click <
Dinik's "Anastasia"
  • This ROM series is skinned with Dinik's great "Anastasia" theme applied on everything.
  • Everything has been skinned, including Sense, the start menu items, the soft keyboard, parts of the dialer... etc
_LeCiel_'s ".sencity"
  • This ROM is themed with the .sencity theme released by _LeCiel_ who is a very talented artist ! Please support his work if possible.
  • .sencity is not %100 complete yet, but _LeCiel_ is working hard on finishing his work to completely skin the entire ROM.
  • Link to the original thread for this mod is here > Click <
DJC & Bobsbbq's "Touch Of Glass"
  • This ROM series is skinned with DJC's "Touch of Glass" theme throughout Sense and the Start Menu
  • More will be skinned as DJC continues his work on the theme in the future...
  • Link to the original thread for this mod is here > Click <
ElCondor's "GTX"
  • This ROM has the white GTX theme applied
  • Android styled taskbar, matching dialer, matching start menu background and Action screen background
  • GTX is a total reskin of the operating system, so expect a very different (white) experience
  • Link to the original thread for this mod is here > Click <

Welcome to the "EnergyROM" thread !



This development thread is for my "Energy" custom firmware series for the HTC Diamond2 (Topaz) device.


The current build numbers and date can be seen in the title of this thread. I usually update the ROMs about twice a week, as new builds come down the pipe or as new software/updates are available.

I build my ROMs with four main goals.
  • Eye candy ( I want my ROM to look great and for it to all flow together nicely)
  • Speed !!!
  • Smoothness, consistency and good aesthetics
  • Stability through private beta testing before public release

I pre-configure a lot of things in my ROM, because when I flash it on my phone, I want it ready to go. So, expect the backlight to be set at the maximum brightness, the ringtone, sms/email and other notifications to already be set. Doing it this way, makes for a nice ROM that's ready out of the box.

I recommend learning to backup your settings with either Sashimi or UC (User Customization). Backing up with SPB Backup or similar products, is NOT recommended, as they tend to backup the previous release's registry/file bugs as well!


Looking at the download folder you will find two core versions of my ROM.

  • A 21916 Build which is the most reliable and bug free release. It has the Start menu button at the top left corner. This build uses the same stock system that came with your device. This is usually the fastest and most stable build, but it's also the least fancy
  • A 29022 Build that's the latest in Microsoft's development with the Start menu button at the bottom left corner and big softkeys, making it all very "finger friendly". These builds reflect the latest cutting edge technology from Microsoft. Most people choose this build... Why else would you install a custom ROM ?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can stay up to date on the status of my ROM development by "following" me on Twitter.

It's definitely the fastest way to get in touch with me and please don't be afraid to tweet me if you see major issues with the ROMs.
I generally do not answer "support" questions on Twitter, as it's really not the proper medium for that. Service packs and quick fixes will always be released as links in my tweets and that's definitely the fastest way to get a fix for a ROM.

'Standard' ROMs that have no addons installed on the homescreen. Stock Sense 2.5 !


'Energy'
  • This series retains the stock functionality of the Sense UI. The files have been compressed by "CFC" compression. making the UI lighter and faster
  • This ROM still retains my theme and style, plus all the regular apps you find in my ROMs.
  • There are no homescreen addon-ons in this ROM. The best speed and the most stock functionality.
'Reference'
  • This ROM is mostly for people that want a close to stock ROM with the stock visual style. It's also perfect for doing your own customizations.
  • A lot of the cooked in apps are removed in this ROM, the Start menu back to the stock 3 row style
  • Sense and everything else is back to the default HTC green.









ROMs mostly created for enthusiasts...



MaxSense UI (android style homescreen)

  • This is a complete rewrite of the Sense homescreen, by maxycy.
  • It features a 3 screen, Android style, homescreen with widgets! The widgets can be placed ANYWHERE on the three screens.
  • 75 Quicklink accessible on all tabs
  • You should really visit the original thread for this mod shown on the next line to see all the features!
  • Link to the original thread for this mod is here > Click <.
Titanium (ROMs for raw speed!)
  • This is a minimal ROM version without Sense in it. It's used primarily for people that like to customize the default 6.5 homescreen (Titanium)
  • You can use it to install alternate homescreen interfaces like SPB Mobile Shell, etc
  • Very low memory footprint and good battery life, but very simple and lacks a lot of features that you would otherwise have available in Sense...

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 install custom XDAS scripts 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.

FAQ

Q: Do I need to install Hard SPL before I flash these ROMs?
A: Yes, it's highly recommended, this thread will help you out.

Q: How do I keep WiFi on even in standby?
A: Open "BsB Tweaks" in the "Tools" folder in the start menu. Scroll down to Connections/Wifi Standby and turn it on.

Q: I have problems with "my location".
A: It might help to update your current radio. Use this thread for further info about which radio that suits you.

Q: NRGZ28 have uploaded new ROMs, but I can't see any changelog for it!?
A: Sometimes their isn't such a big update and therefor no changelog will be posted. But you can try to look at the changelog for HD2.

Q: Their are new ROMs that are recently released, but I can't find them on Hotfile...
A: NRGZ28 often spreads the news about new upcoming ROMs when he starts to upload them. And he don't just cook ROMs for Topaz, so have patience and wait for the uploading to finish.

Q: I use GTX themed ROM and the clock stretches zeros, how can I fix this?
A: Install the hotfix called "ECKM GTX clock 0 fix" that's attached to this post. NOTE: This fix is from the original GTX thread where you also can find hotfixes for other bugs in GTX ROMs.

Q: I get wrong username or password error when I try to login on Twitter, even though I've typed in the correct username and password?
A: Try to log off Twitter on any other device/computer.

Q: Time zone prompts multiple times a day, also after a soft reset. What can I do?
A: Just go to the BsB Tweaks application (Start->Tools->BsB Tweaks) and turn the "Auto Sync Clock" off.

Q: How do I configure the action of the softwarebuttons?
A: Go to: Start Menu - Tools - Advanced Config - Click on Menu - More Settings - Key Mapping. You can either select from a list of applications on the drop down menu or browse for an application of your choice.

Q: I've got problems with Bluetooth Carkit Paring. What can I do?
A: This could solve the problem.

Q: MaxSense won't launch, even if it is after a flash/hardreset. Is there any solution?
A: There are not a straight answer for this, but one thing that seems to have helped others is to remove the XDA_UC folder from your storage card.

Q: Where is the "addons directory"?
A: At the moment, it's located here.

Q: My battery is draining... is their any fix for enhancement?
A: Yes and no, because sometimes this "fix" helps and sometimes not. However you can find the trick here.

Q: Do I need to hardreset my phone after I've flashed one of NRGZ28's ROMs?
A: It's recommended, because it will remove any old settings that may cause bugs in the new ROM.

Q: It would be great if I could boost the audio on my phone, is there a way to do this?
A: You could take a look at this.
