Hello XDAers, this ROM is customized for my own but maybe some of you have the same need
When you try these ROMs, no matter they are good or bad, could you please leave some comments? So we can reach for the best ROM. Thanks for your cooperation.

Post#1: info
Post#2: Downloads (ROMs, cabs, links)

Aims:
1. Performance
2. Touch friendliness
3. Power management

===========================================
Chef's opinions on 2core series:
1. Performance: 6.1 >> 6.5 > 6.5.3 ~ 6.5.x
2. Touch friendliness: 6.5.3 ~ 6.5.x >= 6.5 >> 6.1
3. Power management: 6.5.3 ~ 6.5.x ~ 6.5 > 6.1

Native OEMXip vs. 6.5 OEMXip
1. Total ram: 107 vs. 113 M ==> 6.5 wins
2. Memory map: 2 slots vs. 4 slots ==> 6.5 wins
3. Bugs/issues: 0 vs. 3D view in SPBshell ==> Native wins

However:
1. Pagepool set to 20 M: total ram of 107 M vs. 97 M ==> Native wins
2. Memory map: (by recmod) 0 vs. 0 packages in slot 0 (This slot should be as empty as possible for better performance, see Mr. Makk) ==> Draw

So, in general:
Native OEMXip wins 2, draw 1 out of 3 comparisons

=================================================
Latest ROMs:
xip6.1(no bug)
6.1: 2core2.7
6.5: 2core11.5
6.5.3: 2core12.3

xip6.5(more ram, new memory map)
6.1: 2core4.5
6.5.3: 2core8.2a (recommended)
================================================== ======
Features (all ROMs):
0. Overclockable up to 672 MHz with WiMoSpeed 1.05

1. SYS
+ remove all useless packages (Onenote, Autoupdate...)
+ NetCF3.5

2. EXTs
+ Acrobat
+ Album
+ Calculator
+ Camera
+ Games (Bubble & Solitaire)
+ Office mobile
+ QuickGPS
+ Task manager
+ USB to PC
+ Youtube

3. Added APPs
+ Diamond tweak (credit to MonteCristoffOn)
+ Opera mini 5.1 (thanks to Tortel)
+ PHM regeditor
+ Synchrotime (connect internet to sync time, thanks to Gsoft)
+ Wimospeed (to make your Diam run like 2core, thanks to iwfratz)

4. Tweaks (following Mr. Makk)
+ Pagepool 20 M
+ Auto align screen
+ Reduce RAM usage
+ Maxi touch sensitivity
+ Power saving
+ ... others
+ Compressed with XPR method, which is larger but is believed faster than the LZX method, see here


!!!Known issues: in 2core2.4, 4.1, 5.5
+ EZinput will NOT work (It is very nice, but I did not add its dependences due to their large memory usage) Solved
+ NO 3G, IR (3G is still there, go Start/Settings/Connections/AdvancedNetwork: enable HSDPA/HSUPA from the first tab)
+ Pics in Album cannot slide Solved

+ SMS notification: 1- option of 'repeat play sound' is disable ==> open PHMregedit, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\{A877 D65B...}, change key Options to 1073741825 (hex: 40000000), then you can dis/able all options; 2- the phone is woken up on new sms (wasting power, accidentally call...): go HKLM>Drivers>Built In>RIL, set the value 'DisableSMSWakeUpEvent' to 1 (create it if not found).

+ Slow menu animation (in 6.5.3, and 6.5): 1- open PHMregedit, change the following keys
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\HTCMenus]
"EnableVSync"=dword:00000000 ;this is the most important, 0=disable
"AnimationRadio_LS"=dword:00000000 ;these 2 keys may take effect only if EnableVSync=1, feel free to play with them
"AnimationRadio"=dword:00000000
2- install wonderful FingerSuite by Francesco Carlucci from here or download from post#2. However, changing settings in 6.5.3 cannot be close, require reset the phone (but settings saved), just a bit annoying.

as the first one to say thanks for the addition to tweaked+minimal and stock-sided roms, i have some words...

this is great effort from you. as you can imagine most of us are crazed with the htc sense and newer builds. dont let this get you down or if u receive comments abt the old age build version.

personally i must say...nice one man. i have been tweaking the stock rom (build 20764) myself. so its good to know i aint the only one alone sticking to stock roms and builds rather than ported builds. my signature says otherwise, thats cos i m checkin out 21057 myself

but this is one rom i wil download and keep in my device from time to time.

Thanks for the encouragement Very happy to know you have same opinion.
Actually, I have tested many ROMs before I built myself and also tested many SYS builds. In my experience, the difference among those is little except the smoothness in 6.5 compared to 6.1. In addition, the way MS allocate memory is also believed better in 6.5 (with 2 new slots for modules, which can free more memory or ram during operation). However, I don't feel much. Some tweaks bring more obvious feelings.
