STATUS: "Pure" WM6.5 ROM upgrade UP and OK - no bugs | For a Godspeed "Barebone" version of this ROM go here

  • Current Version SEX1-R5.07 Pure Upgrade release date: 26 NOV 09
    (Previous version SEX1-R5.04 Pure, released 24 NOV 09 had bugs due to incomplete system files)
  • This is a PURE Windows Mobile 6.5 OS/firmware ROM upgrade for the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1, which means no Manila shizz, no wierd customizations, no nothing: just the OS upgrade and the pure XPERIA feeling

  • Preserved all XPERIA X1 native contents, apps & customizations
  • Updated software for XPERIA Camera with autoflash/geotag & MS .NET 3.5 Compact Frameworks

  • Voice Command is included, but disabled by default. To enable it, download and install THIS CAB. This will enable the bluetooth audio gateway too (thanks to a1234567 for posting the registry settings)
  • Common WM6.5 glitches: a) Tapping taskbar battery icon does nothing b) scrolling dialer with keypad hidden causes display corruption

  • NON-ENGLISH HARDWARE KEYBOARD ?? Change the HK language layout --> LINK (thanks to jcespi2005)
  • WANT TO ADD HTC APPs like YouTube, MP3 trimmer, Volume Control, Comm Manager, FM Radio, Voice Recording, plus MANY apps tested for Windows Mobile 6.5 ?? Check this out --> LINK

  • Da_G's thread with latest builds, language changing tutorial and many, many other tutorials; everything required to become a master cheff is here
  • My little tutorial with all of my previous kitchens and personal tips and tricks

  • Get a a ROM in your language (let's say german: Deutsch R3A, or Austrian R3A, whatever)
  • Use the "dump nbh" button: a new folder "dump" will be created
  • Inside new "dump" folder you will find new OEM and EXT folders: replace current OEM and EXT folders with the dumped ones
  • ...or import OEM & EXT folders from another Visual Kitchen already in your desired language
  • Now let's change the XIP|SYS language
  • SYS: Get *LANG_0xxx* folders for your language and add or replace them in \SYS\
  • XIP: Make sure "boot.rgu" matches your desired language, or edit it and search for the 2 LANG strings and change accordingly (eg.: spanish 0c0a instead of english 0409)

  • XIP: Add or replace the new build XIP folder (MSXIPKernel) in \ROM\SHARED\ then rename \ROM\kovsky\21874\ to ROM\kovsky\*your new build number*\
  • SYS: Add or replace the new build SYS folder into \SYS\

Easy, ain't ??

It's my birthday today and I'm really excited to see your new work just today. I'd like to ask if the barebone version also will be available? PLEASE, SAY YES.
