This is basically a clone of Merlin reloaded's slim wm 6.1 however the build has been upgraded from 19716 to 19199. The files were ported from the hermes build and I have verified that internet sharing DOES work on this build unlike build 19716. This build does not contain Merlin's font. The SYS portion is vanilla. The oem portion contains some basic apps such as camera, wm5torage etc.

Nothing has been done to prevent you from dumping this rom and using it as a base. On the contrary I ENCOURAGE you to and will also be including the Slim_19199_Cooking_Kit.zip which contains the ROM, SYS and OEM folders used to help with this.


Application List:

* TodayAgenda
* wm5torage
* HTC Album
* HTC Camera
* Total Commander CE
* BT Explorer
* WiFiFoFum
* Disabled Customer Feedback
* Standard Games
* Office 2007
* Touch Dialer
* Touch Duo Commmgr
* Alt-Tab + Smartskey
* DotFred TaskMgr
* PocketXPDF
* NetworkWizard
* HTC AudioManager
* Btcrawler
* Minimal footprint!
* WLAN G-Mode enabled!
* Touch Scroll only
* Arcsoft MMS

OS only! No EXTROM/IPL/SPL included! This rom does NOT include splash screens 1 and 2 so whatever you are currently using will remain showing.

=========Credits=============
Merlin_reloaded for his WM 6.1 Slim Build 19716
anchillus for Hypercore kitchen.
Garmin for the build 19199 Hermes files
cruzzmz for idiot proof instructions
mfrazzz for patiently answering questions
misar for g'Reloc.

Rom: http://ifile.it/3y26guk

Cooking Kit: http://www.2shared.com/file/2938242/...oking_kit.html

I do not use file hosting services that penalize the downloader while rewarding the uploader such as rapidshare which is anything but. The oem rom version was not updated but the build # shows 19199.


Screenshots kindly provided by Mfrazzz



Update (03/07/08) To those interested in "Activesync over Bluetooth" I am attached a replacement SYS\Bluetooth folder you can recook into the rom which uses a dll from another rom and should enable this functionality. Let me know if it does or does not work for you since I don't use this feature.

For those who don't want to recook you can replace the "bthasplugin.dll" from this package in the \Windows dir and reboot the phone. This has been confirmed to work by user pirlone.

Donations NOT required but always appreciated.

Many thanks for this, I have been waiting for a 'cookable' version of this base ROM
I think I have hit a problem extracting the XIP with this though - it might be me, but when I attempt to extract the XIP is complains about a missing file
Code:
xip2.bin: No such file or directory
I am using the HyperCore tools which I have used before with other ROMs and I don't remember seeing this error previously

It's possible it's just me making a mistake as it is late here and I really should be in bed. I have tried it a few times now and I get the same error each time, I have even re-installed the HyperCore tools...

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks

Hypercore does not correctly extract the XIP for wm 6.1 roms. You can either follow the instructions in the hypercore thread on how to use msflshtool to do it or download the cooking kit which includes the XIP already in the ROM folder for you.

Thank you, I knew it was something I was doing wrong.... I must admit I haven't been following the HyperCore thread too closely so I must have missed the posts about it not being able extract the XIP correctly.
Can I still use HyperCore to re-build the ROM or do I need another kitchen?

Does anyone know if VoIP works with this ROM? This is one of the reasons I have stayed with ItsRight's TNT 1933 ROM (or at least my re-cooking of his base ROM) as I use VoIP (it isn't fantastic but it is usable). Is there a package I can add in for VoIP when I re-cook this?

Thanks

Agree with Pumpiron579

Everything is working - no operating issues whatsoever.

I have only one visual issue, that pops up on some roms - but not on others. There is a white triangle on the top bar beside the "E" icon that does not go away. It just sits there - does not activate anything ??

I've had similar issue with Merlin Rom - and others.

Does not effect any operational functions - just do not know what it is - or what it is supposed to do.

Very nice rom - thank you

Have a good one
