Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard Tornado Hybrid
CE OS 5.2.19202.3.0.0 (SKToolsLite readings)

I am glad to be able to find the time to assemble and cook this ROM. A "Very Special Thank You" to GnatGoSplat for providing the base ROM, assistance and encouragement. A "BIG Thank You" too to RickWyatt for helping me out with my first ROM release sometime back. Thank you to everybody else who are willing and brave enough to flash this ROM to your device. I hope you enjoy this ROM as much as I enjoyed cooking it.

As I am quite busy, support from me will be intermittent and difficult to come by. I hope experienced forum members and cookers can give a helping hand. Please use KarHoe's (great work man!) fantastic Guide to flash the ROM. (Best result when "format BINFS" is done.)

The significant feature of this release is the XIP 20202 from Vox. Please see the benchmark data below for comparison.

Base ROM: GnatGoSplat's WM6.1 Clean 5.2.19202 (Build 19202.1.0.0) Eval
Base XIP: CE 5.2 20202 VOX
(inspired by NiTroGenious' posting, THANKS BUDDY!);)

To-do:
I hope to find time to clean up the Registry in general and hopefully could fix the issues/problems that arises.

(Sorry for the delay to upload this file. However, as a bonus I have included the ROM with CyberonVoiceDial but its softkey conflicts with CommManager/VoiceNotes. Rename the file that you want to flash to nk.nbf.)


- NEW!! Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard Tornado VOX Hybrid XIP 20202 OS Build 19593
I have managed to build another hybrid version with Build 19593. If there is interest I'll upload it. This release was inspired by Nitrogenious' comments in this thread. See pics below.

Note: Credit goes to GnatGoSplat without his "original" WM6.1 release this will not be possible. Thanks very much Gnat.
