Developed by the two psychopaths in Melbourne Australia! - jasjamming [the iron chef] and walshieau [programmer with a vengence]
Feel free to make donations to us in terms of BEER and WOMEN! (ummm. please?)
Thanks for all your support and feedback in v1.1. We have sorted many issues as well as added better functionality all in a tight and compact form factor. Here are the details.
ROM VERSION: WM VI Black 1.2 (22.214.171.124)
CE Version: 5.1.195 (HEX-edited from 5.2.968 to support BBconnect)
FREE STORAGE: 54.06MB
FREE RAM: 29.86MB
The Kitchen Used: ROM Koch (prerelease) by "dutty" - the bat out of hell programmer!
RUU Installer: Custom RUU 3.6 OLI (the ****wit)
So, what does 1.2 contain (MUST READ):
1. Memory Cache Patch
2. HSDPA Icon Enable
3. SD Card Disappear Reg Hack (only works on some SD cards such as Kingston)
4. Bigger Screen (vjtoggletoday)
5. Brighter Screen (vjlumosIII)
6. Flashlight (vjCandella)
7. HTTweakC 2.1
8. MagicSS (Screen Capture)
9. Windows Mobile VI Black Edition splash Screen
10. WMBE.tsk (with black bars) set as default
11. SMS Backup
12. (TaskMan and RegEdit) in programs (the task manager has an integrated registry editor)
13. Connection Manager Icon tray removed
14. XButton (alias Task Manager in Settings) set to "close" when tapping and holding X by default
15. ATImageON Performance Patch
16. No EXTROM - simply unhide your current one with HTweakC and use it as storage space (another 10MB sweet)
Differences from Version 1.1 (READ THIS ALSO)
17. Removed PHM Registry Editor because 12. above has a built in Registry Editor
18. Major Boot Issues Resolved (thanks to the new version of dutty's ROM KOCH)
......NOTE: SPB pocket plus safe mode feature may cause problems (compatability issue with Wm6), if so Soft reset again and OS will load then uninstall Safe Mode from PocketPlus.
19. Cleaned Windows directory as much as possible removing rubbish/redundant files (SAVE STORAGE SPACE)
20. Compacted the ROM to its optimal size via use of tadzio's imgf tool chain
21. Because of 20, Windows Update was removed as the OS.nb is minimal and leaves no ROM room for updates via M$ (who needs this anyway, we are running hacked ROMS)
22. Cleaner Icon set for 3G/E/G/U etc.
23. Batti removed due to popular demand (its listed under optional apps below)
24. BBConnect & Goodlink Work (OS version HEX-edited to 5.1.195)
25. Softkey Manager
26. The funny green dialpad with white blank numbers issue is resolved (removed this crap)
27. Restored Remote Desktop link under Programs
28. Removed all alarm sounds except 1 and removed all ringtones except 3 standard ones. Users can copy across their own sounds (why have garbage when we can save ROM space)
29. Added WPA support with AES for WLAN
30. 3G Video Call option (please see list of optional applications). Video call was not embedded to save ROM space for people who do not use it.
Optional Applications for 1.2 (attached to this post)
1. WM VI Black Cyberon Voice Dial
2. WM VI Black Cyberon Voice Commander (taken from Dopod ROM) - this is similar to MS Voice Command except that it also reads emails
3. WM VI Black Batti 2.1 by David Andrš
4. WM VI Black VIDEO CALL Dialer with smart Dial
6. CWW Enterprises AUSraliat Operator Settings (walshieau)
5. Other applications/utils such as Windows Live or Pocket MSN etc can be found in the Wiki under cooked ROMS.
Well, this is probably the fastest and most compact WM6 Rom (in the presence of useful everyday tools that are added), We hope you enjoy it!!!
Known Issues to Date
1. Turn OFF Wifi option missing in popup bubble
2. Today background does not appear initially on the BLACK (WMBE) theme. You must reselect it in Settings\Today and then will show up properly. This is only work around at this.
3. My wife tells me to sleep on the sofa from now on (and she took my visa platinum)
Note: This upgrade also install SPL 1.13.Olipro Bootloader which is a must to prevent you from bricking your device in future. This SPL also eliminates Bad Blocks if you have them. A NEW BOOTLOADER SPLASH is also included. Your RADIO ROM is not touched, dont panic!
If you want the OS.nb only, extract it and flash it yourself (for advanced users only)
To install, run the (.exe). Then select the current bootloader you have. If you havent modified your BL (SPL), then the option you select should be SPL1.04-SPL1.09.
Disclaimer: NO warranties! LETS keep this thread clean and only post messages regarding v1.2.
SICK OF READING, then DOWNLOAD ALREADY!!! If you already have v1.2 installed, you can install this update then restore your backup from SPB or the like.
MAKE SURE YOUR WINDOWS XP MACHINE HAS .NET 2 FRAMEWORK INSTALLED. if not, download it from microsoft and install it first before ROM Upgrade.
New Boot SPL SPLASH SCREEN (initial splash screen before windows black splash screen)
