here we will post all faqs we could remember, all answered question will not be answered twice

0. Can I upgrade the rom to my ELF/ELFIN?
Quote:

- Both version (premium and lite) can be used on ELF + ELFIN, and do not flash the rom to other device.
BTW for elf user it is recommended to use lite version. since our tiny ram and rom memory will need more free space

1. Can I add/remove TAB?
Quote:

install M2DC and add/remove the TAB

ps: for lite user,,,,, if u have problem adding tab, u should install other skin, than give it another try. it should be working just fine. (or u can find then re-install "Reflection theme" -> the default skin)

2. OMG i cant upgrade the rom, the RUU said invalid size !! / Wrong Certificate !!!
Quote:

- please read the upgrade instruction, since the rom use new base, so it need new ipl and hspl/uspl -> 3.07.cmon or above
- and make sure your rom download is not corrupted

3. I hate the rom, or the chef, or blasev, or service pack, i hate the whole world!!
Quote:

- well i know that not all of u will like this rom, it were meant for speed and stability , the way our team likes it.
and if u feel this rom is not your type, u can try many other rom or cook your own rom. besides we never ever force u to use our rom.
-ps: what have we done, we do it for free and we love u all (almost all though haha)

4. Any guide to using ELF efficiently?
Quote:

- hmm... elf is not meant for M2D -> memory only 64MB, so there are many thing u should do
---a. change the Page Pool to 4MB ->PP changer provided in post 1
---b. dont install too many 3rd party program
---c. close unneeded program from running
---d. install oxios hibernate (dont use oxios close app, just use the hibernate)
---e. dont add more tab, lesser tab = more memory (I use 5 tab myself)
---f. use simple M2DC skin or better not to change the skin at all
---g. buy elfin?? haha , ok ok its a joke, i'm still using my lovely elf myself

5. Pre-installed program are not working!!
Quote:

- we have tried and test most of the app preinstalled in the rom, all are working fine. so check if 3rd arty software or your own registry modification cause the problem.

6. Why the opera mini has indian bookmark??
Quote:

- in order to have some indian taste , u can delete and renew the bookmark

7. Can I remove preinstalled program?
Quote:

- from the rom right? u cant do that, but u can remove the shortcut then pretend the program do not exist

8. Where are the missing sound/picture/software/etc2?
Quote:

-as we mentioned before, the rom is lite, so many thing is gone, u can add that your self by searching through the thread or forum. ps: start from post 5 on this page

9. in call volume is too quite.. louder please.....
Quote:

-[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\SoundCategories\InC all]
"InitVol"=dword:00000005

10. active sync keep on running by it self???
11. how can I overclock when using manila???
Quote:

- easy -> use omapclock or use homescreen plusplus with second today ( i use HS++ )

12. my battery life is lesser than XXX rom!!
Quote:

- tess does have better battery management compared to some other rom, so thats not a rom fault.
- check if active sync is running continuosly on the back ground -> look no 10 for solution
- do not install to many 3rd party software that run continously , eg: S2US, HS++, etc2

13. why my xxxxx software/program/games are not working in tess?
Quote:

- it can be compatibility issues, since we are using newest base rom
- or its 3rd party software conflict?
- or wrong installation?
- or or or or or.......
- well u can see that so many variable can come in at installing new 3rd party software, so we cant and we wont give any support since thats not part of the rom.

14. my device stop working// it can be turned on // the button not working // etc2
Quote:

- go to HTC service center , we can't do anything if its hardware problem

15. Will there be new service pack for TESS 4.X?
Quote:

- we must wait for our bro raffiekol , he's missing somewhere ^_^

16. how can i change the pagepool?
Quote:

- there's sticky on top of elf upgrading forum u can read, and we provide u with page pool changer attached on post 1. download -> extract -> use.

17. SMS threading , where is it?
Quote:

- in TESS 4.X, u can enable SMS threading by using Advanced Config

18. How to upgrade using SD card method?
Quote:

1. Make sure u're using SPL v.3.XX.cmon
2. Use your windows (do not use your PPC) to format your SD card with FAT32.
3. Rename the nbh files to ELF0IMG.nbh
4. Put the renamed nbh to SD card root directory
5. Enter bootloader mode (hold camera button while pressing soft reset button)
6. It will search for the nbh then...
7. quickly press the power button before time countdown is finished
8. wait..... wait..... voila your device is upgraded ^_^
9. for further info : http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index..._Card_Flashing

19. cmonex said that SPL v.3XX is not suitable for ELF!! so how can elf use this rom??
Quote:

- My ELF use 3.07.cmon then i upgrade to 3.10.cmon without any problem, but upgrade on your own risk, we do not hold any responsibility with your device

20. why the rom arent using the latest schap advanced config?
Quote:

- we won't always use the latest version for every software included
- we simply choose the best one according our own usage (fast and stable in mind)
- for example : schap make advanced config ver 3.X above for newer vga device (*cough* diamond), so for qvga user like us, schap 2.1 is more than sufficient.
- yes this is rather subjective, so we simply use our own preference haha

21. how can I disable the "enlarge start menu" function ?
Quote:

change [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\HTC\EnlargeMenu]
"Enable"=1 to 0

22. how to set the touchflo on lite version?
Quote:

please use advanced config -> touch flo setting

23. can I add analog clock to M2D skin?
Quote:

- our current v4.X skin don't support analog clock, so u must use M2DC to install another skin with analog clock.

24. to set network on TESS lite, use manual method
Quote:

start - setting - connection - add new modem connection --- then
"name for the connection" => u can rename with your carrier name
"select a modem" => selular line (gprs)
click next
"access point name" => u can name it the carrier name
click next
please fill them all / just left them blank (in my case, the operator dont need any password or user name, so i left it blank)
click finish
TADA.... its done ...

25. can i switch off back light while charging?
Quote:

- u can search then install psshutxp

26. can i use classic phone dialer with tess premium?
Quote:

- disable the phone canvas , then.....
- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=3457

27. Can i change the whole skin/theme of the M2D?
Quote:

- for everyone who want to change "the whole thing", u can try m2dc (use search)
then install new theme (found at development and hacking thread -> search for this one too)
- or if u want to change the wallpaper only, use setting tab on m2d then change the wallpaper

before we begin, I would like to tell u. How I will miss my position as a "manager" (some call me that) of this thread. This could be our final and last release for elf/in.

I hereby apologize for every wrong deed I've done . also would like to thx for all the support u have given us. Even if this thread forgotten, I'm happy that we can be one of the rom contributor.

I never had any plans to publish my ROMs. But blasev was adamant to make it public. And finally he convinced me to release it, haha.
Although there are lot of great ROMs already by one of best Chefs here, I hope this ROM can make a mark of its own. If you happen to like this ROM, the credit should also go to blasev.

Just to add:
1. This ROM doesn't support UC 2.0 concept as I'm not really a big fan of UC.
2. Pls update to the latest IPL/USPL/HSPL as mentioned by blasev so that you can enjoy the best performance of this ROM.

Last but not the least... special thanks to (not in any particular order)
* Ameet - for his help and keeping the forum clean as a whistle!!
* blasev - for helping me to release these ROMs and maintaining the thread
* raffiekol - for all of his wonderful service packs specially made for TESS, thanks brother!!
* cmonex - for being a wonderful guide
* dsixda - for helping me here n there and helping the Elf community in general with 'never say die' spirit. keep it up bro!!!
* kokotas - for his wonderful hybrid kitchen!!!
* Noonski - for helping whenever i needed help and helping the community in general
* all the developers (bepe, ervius, mamiach, tadjio, pof, dark simpson,tupisdin and many more) of these wonderful tools
* all the developers whose skins/softwares i've used in this ROM
* all those whom i can not remember right now or forgot to thank

as it is a 4 MB DEFAULT PP ROM, therefore you have to check for the following HEX string for both Elf and Elfin:
|04 16 A0 03 | 04 16 A0 13 | 00 10 83 E5 | DA C2 FF EB|

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I managed to found the HEX string you given.

|04 16 A0 03 | 04 16 A0 13 | 00 10 83 E5 | DA C2 FF EB| ----> 4MB PP

So if i change to 12MB, it would be
|12 16 A0 03 | 04 16 A0 13 | 00 10 83 E5 | DA C2 FF EB|

18MB
|18 16 A0 03 | 04 16 A0 13 | 00 10 83 E5 | DA C2 FF EB|

It is correct?

No

|03 15 A0 03 | 02 15 A0 13 | 00 10 83 E5 | DA C2 FF EB| ----> 12 MB Elfin/8 MB Elf

|12 16 A0 03 | 04 16 A0 13 | 00 10 83 E5 | DA C2 FF EB| ----> 18 MB Elfin/4 MB Elf
