Ok just cooked this up over the weekend .. still needs a little tweaking and testing - is the first ROM that I have released - I think it is kinda clean

Feedback is much appriciated (as always) ... and let me know if you find any bugs

BTW I read somewhere that it is possible to increase SnapVue's RAM to 64 MBs - sounds like a load of * to me ... but let me know if you know how to do this as it is really SnapVue's downfall IMHO

... I will also post some screen shots when I get the chance (is kinda late here atm)

... basically these are the specs:


Initial Release (8/2/2009):

Free RAM after hard reset: ~15MBs
Free Storage after hard reset: ~20MBs

Based on thaihugo's kitchen ROM

New input methods:[LIST][*]Full QWERTY (nicer and easier to input than the built in one)

Software included:
  • Office Mobile
  • Remote Desktop
  • Pictures and videos
  • Notes
  • Pocket Internet Explorer
  • Live/Messenger
  • Windows Media Player
  • Restored Today Items
  • Internet Sharing
  • Liberated
  • Opera Browser (Full)
  • MS Voice Command (Pre setup to read email subjects)
  • NET Compact Framework 3.5
  • Network Plugin
  • HTC Task Manager 2
  • HTC GPS Tool
  • SIM Manager
  • Task Manager
  • USB Tool

Automatically deletes Opera cache, PIE cache Temp folder and Google Maps cache each startup

Various registry tweaks... eg:
No SMS notification
Cleartype
Phone stuff removed since there is no phone functionality ... yet

The link is attached in the text document so I can see how many ppl download it

Note: you can free up alot of space by removing MS Voice Command from the cook - and save about 4 MBs of RAM by disabling it - It is important for me to be able to 'hear' my emails come in while I am at work though so this has been put in
However the overall stability of the ROM has been sacrificed in doing so -
To disable: Start > Settings > Voice Command > Uncheck Enabled


WARNING - IF PROGRAMS CLOSE UNEXPECTEDLY: This is because your low on RAM - you can stop the Voice Commander service as stated above, or download advanced config and prevent HTC Task Manager from closing apps automatically when low on RAM


Update (10/2/2009):

Free RAM after hard reset: ~16 MBs
Free Storage after hard reset: ~22.5 MBs (and 27.95 total user area)

Ripped out more from the stock ROM to free up some more space (bluetooth functionality etc since the snap view side can not see bluetooth anyway etc.)
Increased ROM stability and freed up some more ram by removing unnecessary services.

New registry tweaks:
  • Changed default area code to nothing
  • Added email and and txt msg sound notifications

Update (18/2/2009):

Free RAM after hard reset: ~19.58 MBs
Free Storage after hard reset: ~28.84 MBs (and 32.32 total user area)

Changes:
  • Ripped out even more from the ROM
  • REMOVED OPERA (download it from one of the other threads if you want it back - I use the Windows side for surfing the net)
  • Changed splash screen
  • Added i00 Reg Edit 0.99 B (my own registry editor made especially for my ROM - will be released soon in a separate thread)

Update (2/3/2009):

Free RAM after hard reset: ~16.78 MBs
Free Storage after hard reset: ~27.53 MBs (and 30.82 total user area)

Changes:
  • Comm Manager now works
  • Phone and Mic functionality now works
  • Added New Radio and SPL to the Flash so that n00be's don't brick their device
  • Screen rotation setting removed as it was buggy
  • Replaced Soft Reset with custom one so that the user is now prompted to confirm that they want to restart
  • Updated HTC GPS Tool
  • Help in start menu is now not empty
  • GPS Router Added
  • Internet Sharing moved to System folder
  • Media player removed
  • WM6 (NOT HTC) Task Manager Removed

Update (3/3/2009):

Free RAM after hard reset: ~17.25 MBs
Free Storage after hard reset: ~27.73 MBs (and 31.07 total user area)

Changes:
  • Voice Command now announces incoming calls by default
  • Remote Desktop put back in
  • IE defaults to high resolution
  • Speakerphone cannot be disabled on the phone now (there is no built in speaker so you could not hear the other caller when the speakerphone was disabled)
  • Ripped some unnecessary stuff from various places

Update 20090307 (7/3/2009):

Free RAM after hard reset: 17.09 MBs (Taken from HKCU\Performance\ after 2nd boot)
Free Storage after hard reset: 27.77 MBs (and 31.07 total user area) (Free storage taken after 2nd boot)

Changes:
  • .Net apps now work for apps not in the Windows directory

Update 20090309 (9/3/2009):

Free RAM after hard reset: 16.1 MBs (Taken from HKCU\Performance\ after 2nd boot)
Free Storage after hard reset: 25.83 MBs (and 29.45 total user area) (Free storage taken after 2nd boot)

Changes:
  • MMS intergrated into ROM

Known issues:
  • MMS recording voice note does not work

Common Questions

OK thought I'd put together a list of common questions that people have with this ROM to stop me answering the same questions again and again.

Q: What else is included in the Flash
A: Besides the OS the ROM includes Hard SPL and Radio 1.27.35.28

Q: Can I run this ROM on
A: Besides the OS the ROM includes Hard SPL and Radio 1.27.35.28

Q: How do I install this ROM?
A: Well if you have used custom ROMs in the Past you can just download and run the EXE - else you will have to "Liberate" your shift - connect it to your Vista side with USB Tools and then run the EXE

Q: How do I disable T9
A: Open the input options for the Full QWERTY Keyboard - Click T9 Settings then un-check all the checkboxes

Q: The WM side turns off and will not come back on
A: If this happens to you go to ( on the WM side) Settings > Connections > USB to PC application and tick "Enable Advanced Network Functionality" (thanks nbos04)
A2: You can also disable (Under Settings>Power>Advanced) the option to turn off the device when it is not used for X.

Q: Programs keep closing unexpectedly
A: You may be low on RAM - if this is the case you may want to kill the Voice Command Service, as this takes up to 4MBs of RAM constantly

Q: How can I change the Keyboard Language?
A: The registry setting for the keyboard layout is as follows HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\KEYBD\CurLan g; The complete list of values to enter can be found here; however not all are fully compatible with the Windows Mobile platform; also changing these key mappings will not change the large on screen keyboard - to change the on screen one you will need to either edit the eT9.Raphael.0409.kmap.txt file (advanced but allows for custom layouts); or download another layout from here.
I will consider including the additional on screen keyboard languages in future releases.

Q: How do I set the data connection on the W/M side to auto - disconnect as it drains the battery too quickly?
A: The registry setting for the to auto disconnect the data connection is at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\ConnMgr\Planner\Settings. In there you have the setting CacheTime this is the number of seconds that will elapse before auto disconnection the data connection when not in use; change this as appropriate. You will also need to turn on the auto disconnection by editing the SuspendResume to read: GPRS_bye_if_device_off
(Note: if the auto disconnection still does not work make sure that you are not constantly connected to data - ie. Exchange server set to receive items as they arrive)

Congrats on your rom. Looks heavy.
There is no way to get 64 mb of ram as this is the current chipset capacity, without OS loaded.

44Mb is my maximum storage available (with a functionning system of course)

I'm waiting for the new base with phone to work from there.

Thumbs up
I love this sort of ROM - stuffed full of goodies. It's like a Christmas treat.
I've installed the ROM just now and it's exactly how I would want the WM side to be. Thanks for setting up Opera for us layabouts that can't be bothered to

I have syncd the ROM with my huge Outlook file and it works great.

Will give you more feedback as I play.

Latest:
I'm very happy with Opera.
Haven't worked out how to disable T9 yet to set up email etc.
I can't install youtubeplay I'm getting an error. Anyone know how to get it working on this ROM?

Very Latest: I found the option to disable T9 under the keyboard options. I love the new large on-screen keypad!
I prefer the fancy calculator of Gullum's ROM IMHO.

I will install the calc skin from my touch pro and see how that runs - also will rip some more "unnecessary" stuff out such as bluetooth since it doesn't work anyway and will hopefully free up some memory too

As for you tube you could download the diamond/touch pro version here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=395338
don't know if it works but judging by my touch pro the interface only works in Portrait (it may still work but will load in portrait)

as for the calc skin i have attached it to this post with a screen shot

will also post a newer version of my ROM, later tonight, that has ~22.5 MBs of free space (and 27.95 total user area) after boot and ~16 MBs of free ram ... seems to be more stable also

may embed the calc skin into later builds ... but it's a little big for my tastes for something i don't use

Thanks i00.
I agree that the default calculator is best now that I have seen the memory requirements of the fancy calculator skin.

Thanks for the youtubeplayer link. I haven't tried it yet but will do so this evening.

I'm having a bizzare problem setting up my email accounts for some reason. It is tricky entering my username and password, and when I try to auto detect the account configuration it says it cannot connect. When I go BACK, the password field contains more characters than I originally entered. I haven't tried manually setting up the full account yet, but this behaviour I haven't seen before.

I haven't worked out how to get the voice control goodies working yet but I'll enjoying tryin all of that out this week. I wouldn't miss voice control at all on your next ROM release however.

Edited:
Comm Manager under SnapVue Settings seems to run without displaying anything. I hope that can be fixed...

Looking forward to your next ROM release. Hope it is soon... your's is the best ROM yet IMHO.

Thanks again.

Updated.
Have been using the new ROM and am happy to report that it is notably more responsive and faster.
I was delighted to find screen orientation option for portrait under settings, so thanks for that. Although I did manage lose the start menu at some point so I was stuck on the Snapvue page and was forced to reboot from Vista. I'll let you know the details if I repeat it.

The modem is totally stable, which is great. I didn't manage to work out how to install youtubeplay but it's no showstopper, I'm very please with the ROM. I installed fexploreext which is small but infinitely useful.
Ta.

Will try to post a new release before Wed next week ... any suggestions for the new release? - I am considering taking out Opera Full and loading Opera mini instead as it requires less RAM.

Am also making a registry editor that I plan to include in the next release.

Let me know if you (anyone) has any requests.
