This is a clean WM6.5.5 (build 23545) ROM in several versions:

- premium: This is like the stock ROM, with Sense and with HTC Messaging.
- premium_nomess: This is like premium, but without HTC Messaging
- lite: This is without HTC Sense.
- lite_nomess: This is lite, but without HTC Messaging
- lite_WMphone: This is a lite version without the HTC phone canvas and Messaging. This is what I use, in order to have a fully landscape enabled ROM.
- barebone: almost all HTC stuff removed, this is almost pure Windows Mobile as it comes from Microsoft. Only some applications like Youtube, Opera are there.


Please read the whole post for important information. You won't regret it!


The ROMs are kept very close to stock (Leo 2.10 packages). I try to make them stable and fast, no 'bloatware'.

Sense is fully Landscape enabled!
However, you have to change one registry key to prevent the music and pictures tab from rotating. Read the 'problems and solutions' section at the bottom of this post on how to make it work in landscape without issues!

- Touch InCall Screen Tweak (replacement for the proximity sensor, for ROMs without HTC dialer)

- two Windows Media Player skins
- WinRAR
- Start Menu icon changer
- MyStopWatch
- Rotate screen applications


Customization:

Themes

I decided not to include any UI customization for now, to keep the ROM as clean as possible and give you all the choice of customizing it how you like.
For some nice UI tweaks and themes, have a look at these threads:
Livven Simple Gloss theme: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=578468 (very nice one )
Sense customizations: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=584415 (be careful, not everything works with the newest Sense version)
Shadowline's theme: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=526618
Taskbar Icons: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=602295

Titanium Plugins

Titanium Informer, great plugin for news, TV guide, cinema, weather...: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=561349
Home Screen Customizer: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=573744
You can also use Home Screen Customizer to add Opera website links. Create new links to Opera9.exe with your website URL as an argument, give it an icon with CSMI, then add it to the launcher Titanium plugin.


Changelog:


V8.0
- new drivers (camera exposure fixed!)
- new WM build 23545
- some minor improvements



Screenshots:





Problems and solutions:

- Manila music and pictures tab getting messed up in landscape mode: Change the registry value HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila\EnableFullscreen to 0.
- Cannot change date when Manila is disabled: Enter the date manually with the keyboard.

Yeah WM6.5.3 is the only thing I was missing from my Blackstone

Sucks that my internet connection is so slow, I've been uploading for over 4 hours before I've been disconnected.

The ROM is already working pretty good, I'll fix some more things and ask a friend to upload it tomorrow.

Hey guys and girls

Sorry that it took so long, I could not upload the ROMs because my connection is only 64k and very unstable.

The first three versions are done:
- barebones
- without Sense, without Messaging
- without Sense, with Messaging

I will upload them soon, within the next 4 hours, hope everything goes well this time.

This is my To Do list, so that you know what's still missing:
- include a nicer theme (shadowline's)
- reorganize and customize start menu icons
- get rid of the keypad symbol in the dialer
- update some packages with newer versions
- find a landscape enabled (Rhodium) dialer
- some registry tweaks

I have not included Google Maps, you can download the newest version with compass support from www.google.com/gmm.

I also have not included RSShub, because it does not work with WM6.5.3 ROMs.

Many eyes see more than two, so please report any bugs you find!
