I'm curious; How many people like this rom's graphical interface better than the one that WM6.5 and previous versions of Windows Mobile used? Also, what programs have people using my roms come accross that work with previous versions of Windows Mobile, but don't exactly work with the new interface that comes with WM6.5.3 (and later versions)? I'm trying to compile a list of older programs for Windows Mobile that don't exactly work with the new graphical interface.

Last thing, has anyone encountered any problems with Bluetooth? I had gotten some complaints about bluetooth issues with the last WM6.5 rom that I put out, and I would like to know if those problems got fixed.

I like more the 6.5 interface, but I can exist with the new 6.5.3 too. The only program what I use and is not 100% compatible with the new 6.5.3 interface is the totalcommander for pocketpc. Any other programs what I use, can accomodate with the new interface.
My problem with this ROMs are only relative with the iGO navigation, which are using more and more memory from one versions to another, and the ROMS are using more memory then the Asus 6.0. But I observed, that if I softreset my A696 before using the navigation, the navigation working fine without any memory problems.

Is it possible to change the language of this rom? I need Polish.
I've tried to use AsusWM6Patch but no luck (Actual language: Unknown).
Maybe some HEX hack?

BTW: Great work Steven855. Thanks.

It's seems to look that this rom is the greatest so far.

Thanks again steven for amazing job!

In addition i would like to have a HEBREW language to the rom.

There's no easy way to change the language of a rom. You have to take an existing rom, extract its contents, change what you need, and then package it up again so it (fits and) can be successfully flashed. If someone is willing to tell me how to flash a rom with a language different than the default language, PLEASE TELL ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The big thing right now with all the international roms is trying to flash them so I can test them. Once this is (finally) solved, I can continue working on the international releases. I would try AsuWM6Patch, but it seems to be geared towards flashing with the supplied program and not the SD flasher method that I have been using to test my roms.

Well I don't understand why you say it's so complicated. My friend bought Asus A696. But that was WWE version (Windows Mobile 6 Classic). I've dump rom from my A696 (POL version) a then reflashed his PDA. So it's possible and quite easy.

Here you can read more about it (google translator version).

(remove spaces).
Hint: usbloader.exe

One more thing. You can use modified version of Upgrade Tool. Now it's easy to upgrade even if the rom file is older then the orginal or in different language.

Thank you for the resources. I will definitely look into the second entry. As for the 1st version with usbloader, I run Windows 7 and have tried the usbloader method, but it never works for me. I haven't been using the Upgrade tool because I'm afraid of permanently bricking my A626 (I bricked it once before, and getting it fixed was a pain) and I know that the SD flasher method works with no problems (as long as the power is on; never try to flash roms during a thunderstorm). By the way, where did you find the modified upgrade tool anyway?

Link to the modified version is mentioned here:

and here for example:
h t t p : //forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=308611

Oh and I find this page:
h t t p : //oneiros-eidos.nm.ru/index_en.dhtml

There is a solution for usbloader and Win7:

Thumbs up Thanks!
I have installed the 6.5.3 ROM on my Asus MyPal A696. So far no problems. My PDA has come back to life.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the great work! Keep it up!

Tip: Sprite Backup works on migration from Windows 6.1. ROM, including the installed programs.

Yours sincerely,
Christian Opitz

Steven,

Yet again you come through. I really needed that Office bit...

And I'm sure you'll be able to resolve the WM7 once it's out!
