Three months after the editing of the first oficial Touch HD ROM, it's time for a renewal. This device will accompany me for quite a while, while in anticipation for the newer series of HTC devices, with even faster processors and "other" capabilities.

The past few days we've seen here in xda-developers, some applications from Topaz & Rhodium as whel as ROMs that contains some of their features. There are many problems, since the ROMs are available to a handful of developers, they're beta ROMs (the devices will be available on the market after mid April) and none of them who present the work with few or more elements from Topaz allow access to their ROMs - they're always locked.

Believing and having in mind a basic principal that knowledge is useful only when it's shared, continuing with the same philosophy after many hours of work and over 150 flashes until now for this ROM (I don’t have beta testing team), I am publishing this edition that is solely and exclusively based on ROMs from Diamond 2. It is unlocked, as were the previous ones, so that those who know can benefit from this work and take it a step further.

I worked very hard for long hours. I haven't had to work this hard since I made my first ROM for HTC Kaiser. Once more I am saddened by all that's happening in xda-developers, the stupid antagonisms, and the cruel attempts for profit that lead to the destruction of the very idea of common resources and help amond developers. I am troubled and honestly I don't know if I should post my new work here or not.

So you can take files from ROM and move yours a step forward but don't forget to lock your ROM work. As I said before, you've been to all this trouble after all, you wouldn't want anyone else getting any parts ready made now would you?

Basically we have a new TF3D that has once more succeeded in allowing single hand access to even more basic daily functions, on a touch screen. As I had predicted since it's first appearance, it is constantly evolving and has managed, along with the large in size and resolution HTC touch screens, as well as the powerful CPUs and large memory, to give a new breath to the essentially non-changed Windows Mobile we've known for so many years.

There are more than 1400 more files than there were in the Touch HD ROM. Device owners should keep in mind that they will start with around 105 MB free Program Memory and around 311MB for Storage. The new version of Manila alone is over 2100 files that require around 40MB!

My choice, for stability reasons, is to base my work on the official HD ROM and change it with all new features from Topaz. I hope you will agree with me when you try it out, that my attempts were well worth the effort and that the problems that lie ahead to not be serious and to be easily resolved. I can perhaps promise a Greek ROM in time to come.

To flash ROM you need USPL 2.1-2.2 in order you don't have any guarantee problems. For more, take a look here.

Alternative, you must flash Unsigned_HardSPL_for_Blackstone_OliNex from here. Οnce you have hardspl flashed already, all you have to do is just flash any ROM you want.

You have two ways to flash the ROM. I propose first one, as safe and more rapid.

1. Copy BLACIMG.NBH into the root dir of your Storage Card.
2. Be sure to have at least 30% of charge.
3. Turn off your device . Fully power the device off by long press of power key.
4. Go to bootloader mode. Push and hold Vol Down + press Power button.
5. As soon as presented the message, push Power button to start flashing or Volume Down button to cancel.
6. The whole procedure will take about 3 minutes. After you finish and see the relative message, soft reset your device, you are ready.

Alternative way: After unzipping the file you have downloaded, you must run from your desktop PC CustomRUU.exe with your device synchronizing and the battery above the 50%. Follow the instructions on the screen. After fisrt boot make a hard reset.

I wanna thanks Olipro and Cmonex for spl, stepw for USPL, as entire the community for contribution and the distribution of knowledge.
