Reality ROM for the Lumia 710

Reality ROM is based on Nokia firmware 7.10.8858.136[All the OEM apps are intact]

WHY THIS ROM?
I'm sure this question arises to everyone's mind when they see yet another custom rom. Well, I cannot answer that question, simply because each of your requirements from a ROM would be different from mine. I've been using Dynamics ROM so far, the reasons why I chose to build a rom were:
1:The project was closed, which meant no more cab updates to minor changes, tweaks or to add any other custom packages to increase functionality. It really put me off, since if i had to install anything in the future i would have to reinstall a different rom anyway, thought I might as well do it now, before i have alot of personal data accumulated.
2:I loved the Clock Hub at the start, it looked good and I thought it was of great use. However after a few days, I never really used it, i personally felt returning to the start screen from an app just to look at the time/battery level wasn't very feasible considering no fast app switching. And hence resulting in some unneeded battery drain due to frequent tile update.
3:Cache clearer never really seemed to work for me
4:I messed up my Bluetooth drivers installing DFT drivers and my Bluetooth share stopped working lol, tried everything to fix it, at the end, only solution i found was to reflash.
5:So when i thought about reflashing, reinstalling all the apps[especially the homebrew apps] all over again seemed very annoying. [I'll put up a guide, how to quickly get your rom up and running with all apps next]

So to counter all this, I made this ROM for myself, thought i'd share it with people who wanna use it as well.
Features of Reality ROM
It's based on the original firmware with a minimal of changes, added some applications[homebrew] to maximize, functionality without having to compromise on performance. Connectable with Zune without any issues

-Full Unlock v4 by ultrashot
-Cab Updateable [Cab updates are fully supported in this ROM. Any cab updates which are signed by ultrashot,xbmod,Rataplan,MSFT and myself are all supported. So you no longer have to depend only on the ROM creator for cab updates but you can update the rom using any of the other developer's[mentioned above] cab's]
-Added ProgramManager in Settings[Remove any of the apps, pack to xap etc]
-Added XAP Deployer[Deploy XAP's to device]
-Added Search Key Remapping[Added to Settings menu]
-Added WMDC[Access Filesystem, Use WPBackup etc]
-Added WP7 Root Tools[Latest version 1.0]
-Added ScreenCapturer[Take screenshots]
-Added Bazaar[Homebrew Market]
-Added WPHTweaks
-Added Digital Power[View battery percentage next to the battery icon, swipe from top[works even inside most apps]. Configure in the app and restart phone
-Added FileManager
-Added Folders[Group apps and pin live tile to start screen for quick access to multiple apps]
-Added MPATool[Used to add Artist pictures, beautifies the lock screen when a song is played]
-Added Touch Wake[Use hardware buttons to unlock]
-Added Ringtone maker
-Added Bluetooth Share[Works perfectly, please DO NOT install any other custom BT drivers, it'll only mess up all the existing drivers]
-Added more Emergency Call numbers[Indian region and others]
-Added new emoticons in the messaging[smlies]
-BatteryBackup seems to have improved compared to Rainbowmod but I really can't assure you anything

HOW DO I INSTALL AND SET UP EVERYTHING?

1:Backup your application data using WPBackup
-Just backup your App Data only[distributive is unnecessary, preferably backup only your data of games]. Install the rom, install those applications/games and then restore your backup

2:To get an unlocked bootloader, use this method.

Follow the videos and you should be fine, All the links for downloading the tools required should be provided in the description of the video
4:To reinstall all the apps you installed from marketplace, goto "To reinstall applications from the web" part in that page. The easiest way is to do it from a desktop or a laptop, just follow these instructions and all of those apps you had before would be installed in a matter of a minute.

CAB UPDATES

Cab updates are fully supported in this ROM. Any cab updates which are signed by ultrashot,xbmod,Rataplan,MSFT and myself are all supported. I'll try and post any cab's I create and links to some others here so that you can customize it to your needs

First and foremost, a lot of cab's once applied cannot be removed from your device unless you reflash the ROM, so make sure you want the cab update on your phone before doing it. However some of them will be removable, and feel free to test them out on your ROM.

CAB'S LIST:

To update to the latest version, install cab's 1 and 2 posted below one after the other to fix the live tile issues.

1:WP 7.8 OS UPDATE (7.10.8858.136 - 7.10.8860.142)
2:WP 7.8 OS UPDATE (7.10.8860.142 - 7.10.8862.144)
3:THEMES.CAB[Adds custom backgrounds to your phone, however the number of accent colors on your phone reduces. Its the same as the backgrounds present on Rataplan's ROM v4. THIS CAB CANNOT BE REMOVED]
....more to be added

YOU CAN FIND A LOT OF INFO ABOUT HOW TO APPLY THE CAB UPDATES AND PLENTY OF CABS FROM HERE: All credits for these goes to the respective authors.

Links are working fine for me, please try again. And yes, you need to download both the files. You'll get one file after you unzip it though, which you can flash using the methods described above

However since you have some problem getting it work, I'll be updating the first post with a new mirror as well, stay tuned

Sure, that would help alot. Can you upload it on dev-host? The unzipped file.
Also I've added 20 accent colors, which is default by WP7.8, didn't really want to make alot of changes as it would only make it more unreliable. However you can always use cab updates to add them yourself, there are plenty available. Lot of them are signed using xbmod, and you can apply those cabs without any problem at all giving you ultimate customization without having to reflash the rom
