It's built to be as minimalist as possible, without sacrificing functionality (where applicable); some things might not work out of the box for you, so take that into consideration should you opt testing it.
Please read posts 2+3 should you experience any issues.


Thanks goes to the authors of the respective tools/software used in the making of this ROM.

Features:

- This is a WWE hardcoded ROM. If you want partial "other lang" support, read up a few pages ahead. A fix was posted.
- Removed EzInput and the HTC keyboards, leaving only the BKS keyboard.
SIPs available: Finger Keyboard & m$ standard (via registry).
- Removed Connection Manager. Just search for a CAB in case you need to set up your inet/MMS connection for your provider.
- Removed "Contacts" link from programs menu, since it's already mapped in the Today screen.
- As of WM6.5, you don't need to click on the app itself; for example, you can easily enter SMS/Email/Call History or manage BT/WiFi/Battery from the Titanium View. Just click on the icon!

I MIGHT make this ROM UC compatible, but don't really feel that's necessary for the time being. Unless you can't live without UC.



Issues/Bugs/Fixes:

- Only splash screen + wait cursor after FIRST boot: just click on the upper-left corner, where the start button used to be.
This only needs to be done ONCE after a fresh flash/hard reset.
- Once in a while (mostly after a Titanium Refresh or Soft reset) you'll encounter the Titanium (JMLToday) Clock going berserk. You need to disable the "Windows Default" plugin in Today, exit, then re-enable it.
- Freezing issues (mostly older versions). Your radio version < 1.09, for best results, use the 1.14+ radios (best, 1.17.x) since the ROM uses a 1.14+ rilphone
If you experience issues with GSM signal, try installing a rilphone.dll from here and/or switch your WCDMA frequency in phone settings
- Not booting after soft resets: Remember to Power OFF your handset, NOT soft reset. Power off enables a clean shutdown, whereas while soft resetting you may lose data which may make your handset unbootable.
- GPS not working - Default port changed from COM4 to COM3 in the latest builds. Reconfigure your GPS software to reflect these changes.

If need be, I might provide you with CABs, or you might search XDA for some. Or just use PocketCM Keyboard.
The font in general might be too small for you, as are the menus, especially if you use your fingers instead of the stylus.
There's also no Connection Manager. Just search for a CAB in case you need to set up your inet/MMS connection for your provider.
- I have opted for a longer GPS poll time in order to save battery. That might change in potential future releases, but it works just fine this way. Just takes a bit longer to acquire sat fixes.
- Trusted Timezone bug - will be fixed in next release.

Of course you can.
I left Manilla support enabled in general.

*edit* - added PocketCM as a fallback in 2.3.1
