My First thanks to Maglite and Football. Maglite was the first to release a custom rom for the x50v, he was the one with Football to explain me about xip & xipport, when I registered to 4pda.ru. These roms were built using a derived kitchen from Football's kitchen.
These roms share the same kernel than the x51v's one and are directly derived from them. They are stricly for x50v, the one from the x51v are located here .
You can only flash your x50v with these roms, if your device is running WM5 aku 2.3.1 or higher. If you attempt to flash over a WM2003 bootloader, you will brick your device.
This rom is indeed a full professional rom, with this rom your x50v is not a PDA anymore, it will just become a real VOIP Pdaphone.
What is the difference between a x50v regular rom with a VOIP software (like Sjphone) and this WM6.1 VOIP rom?
Here are the main benifits once your axim is properly configured:
- You only need to turn on your wifi to place or receive VOIP call (You don't need to start any software because the VOIP is native on the OS)
- You can call directly from your contact
- You can import call log and dialed number from any other phone using PimBackup
- There are three way to check your PDAphone is connected to the VOIP network
1/ You can see the two network call bar from the top bar
2/ You can use the VOIP today plugin
3/ You can see your VOIP network from the phone application itself.
Also this incredible rom is available in 5 different localized version: WWE/WWE/GER/ITA/ESN/FRA
Status of these 5 roms:
Rom A09 PRO_VOIP (private "pure" edition):
WM6.1 Professional - CE OS 5.2.19965 (Build 199184.108.40.206) with "4.8 MB Pagepool"
And includes the following
-- Native VOIP support
-- Setup VOIP from Schap to configure your VOIP setup.
-- SDHC support
-- Outlook Enhancementsupport
-- WPA-TSK vagus fix.
-- NetCF 3.5
-- SQLCE 3.5 (Localized)
-- wireless manager, is there but tricky to use.
-- Softkey Applet (a powerfull applet that allows you to change your softkey without having to soft reset)
-- TCPMP 0.72 (Localized) with two different subtitle support (thanks will5 for the information about the new subtitle pluggin) and YouTube support (Subtitle support for SMI in video "Intel 2700G" mode and not in "Intel 2700G Decoder" mode)
It also includes avc, aac & ac3 plugin. TCPMP is an alternative to WM Player. File associations is availble in TCPMP settings
-- PIE 6.1 and YouTube plugin, scrolling can be done using directional button, PIE Ramdisk is available in Scripts & Tricks section (it uses ram for PIE cache to improve performance). About the YouTube Plugin, it works natively. If you surf on YouTube with PIE, when you click on a video a context menu will be displayed (see screenshot above). Then you will be able to save the video or to view it online through TCPMP.
-- DF's PIM Backup 2.8 (a replacement for Data Backup)
-- ModemIS, a string initialization modem utility.
-- 7-zip, if you need to extract 7z compressed files.
-- aximsite wireless switcher
-- screen capture, a simple screen capture utility (Not in German rom)
-- Notepad, a very usefull text editor.
-- GSFinder+, a replacement for File Explorer, this version has an High Resolution feature. I find this software more interesting than Resco Explorer because of this feature and also because it's faster.
-- ozVGA and WM6.1 trueVGA Localized dlls, to switch in TrueVGA mode (The German rom contains only the trueVGA dlls and not the trueVGA applet)
-- MortScrip 4.1
-- NoPluginsToday, a switcher to quickly de-activate all your plugin and re-activate them all. Plugin de-activation will boost your device.
-- MagicButton, so all application will close and release memory instead of being minimized (a replacement for switcher bar) (Not in German rom)
-- Ramdisk see "Menneisyys" article. These rom will automount a 3 Mo ramdisk with filesys.exe TempPath pointing to the ramdisk. Unmounting the ramdisk will autopoint to permanent storage, while mounting any ramdisk will automatically point the TempPath the the ramdisk.
-- Hibernate, a powerfull tool to claim unused memory.
-- UC ROM capability
The package contains the following UC components with the appropriate SDConfig.txt:
----- PocketRAR 3.80 (Localized)
----- DF's Task Manager / Registry Editor 3.1, a very good task manager embedding a usefull registry editor (with this software and GSFinder+, you don't need Resco File explorer anymore).
---- x51v Mix
---- Windows Live 10.6.39.1300
---- MagicButton (only in German package)
---- screen capture (only in German package)
with following registry tricks:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\ObjectStore\RegistryType =0 , (file based registry)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Navigation\"4-Way Nav"=0
Compaction thread :
One of the best way to fight against compaction thread is to reassign all temp files to ramdisk. By default, this 4.8 pagepool rom will autoload a 3 Mo ram disk and ensure more than 30 Mo of free memory to run the programs. You can easily unmount or change the capacity of the ramdisk using the preconfigured features located in program files/ramdisks. Like mentioned before it will automatically point filesys.exe TempPath to the ramdisk. I also strongly suggest to use Pie_Ramdisk (in tips&tricks) instead of Pie.
Also if you want to check compaction thread behaviour with different pagepool values, you can use Paveld PPeditor. (Thanks Paveld & wllw from 4pda)
Instruction to use Paveld PPeditor
Kitchen from Football is available here.
Update: A09 VOIP Gold release
It's more like a dking special, those rom have :
--a patched gwes.exe to avoid the display problem in menus (thanks to dking that was kind enough to explain me his tutorial published in russian in 4pda.)
--dking patched drivers for Axim's screen backlight on minimum brightness
(it should also fix the french menu displayed when trying to access YouTube from PIE)
Update 2: A09 VOIP Gold with patch filesys.exe release
It's the very same A09 VOIP Gold release, with a custom shsmith patch filesys.exe v6.3. I've use cook method highlighted by Menneisyys to generate those patch filesys.exe.
The patch is launched at startup and can be invoked also from Scripts & Tricks section.
