Download 910c_21500_v1_3.zip here.

Disclaimer: I am a n00b at cooking, so be careful and assume nothing. Flashing your device is dangerous - if you screw something up, sometimes there are recovery methods if you search for them. I take no responsibility and am not going to bother labelling this "beta" since i think pretty much everything you get from xda-devs is beta :d

Instructions for flashing:
1. Get a microsd card sized 2 gb or lower (sdhc won't work) and format it with regular fat filesystem. Copy my flash.dio to the root of the card. Insert card into your device.
2. Put your device into sdloader mode by holding volup+ok(button on right side) and pressing reset. Make sure your battery has a decent charge (over 50%) and isn't connected to any usb charge or sync cable (or else your device will just go into ruu mode).
3. Watch the magic... Sdloader will check the file integrity, flash to your device rom, do a clean reboot (can take a minute longer than usual) and then go into the "welcome to windows mobile, tap here to continue" stuff.

Rom ported from build 21202 xip and qvga sys sources posted by Da_G, dsi76 and others at ppcgeeks
using reference port, kitchen tools and mucho technical assistance from keyx

v1.3 release notes:
- new build! big debate about whether or not it is fake; very similar to 21202 but reportedly faster because some debug code has been removed
- Google Latitude login bug fixed - either by this build or the new version of Google Maps Mobile (lol)
- may take a bit longer on first boot. let it beep once, then it will fall asleep. count to 10, then press power button to wake the device back up. you should get second beep and calibration screen pretty quick after that
- ADC, Enterprise and IPSECVPN sys packages removed
- Adobe Flash and NumberBattery included as always

v1.2 release notes:
- earlier bugs with theme, start menu and sms messaging are fixed
- this build includes wmwidgets but i have removed things like enterprise features and adc (which doesn't appear to work)
- many unnecessary (imho) ipaq startup shortcuts have been moved to \windows\startup_old
- go start - settings - connections - hp ipaq dataconnect and manually choose your country and carrier in order to get gprs data properly configured (auto-config seems broken by wm6.5)

Flash it, test it out, report bugs, much appreciated.

If you like this rom, please consider a donation to keyx because of all the time he has spent answering my n00b cooking questions.[/quote]

possible way to solve bugs:
1. initflashfiles.dat have some reference to hp.tsk, Also the rgu file in oemapp/oemlang may have registry reference (i think it is the reg that set the theme in today) to the theme, you should remove those including the color setting so the theme specified in base_dpi_96_resh_240_resv_320/mxipcold_wpc_2.provxml would be used instead

2. i never have this problem...did you replace the phone.dll and ril.dll? May be you need to replace more files but i have no ideas. What error did you get?

3. you can change to 4 columns by modifying StartMenu_GridScene_320x240.cpr in Base_Lang_0409_DPI_96_RESH_240_RESV_320, there is a Columns attribute in the gridview (I think you can test that out by finding the cpr file in your deivce windows directory and modify it directly to see the result)

RE #1: yeah, haha, just figured that out by full-text searching all the OEM rgu files for HP.tsk
RE #2: ppcgeeks says that this is actually a webview.dll problem in SYS\BROWSING package, so I'm throwing in the working one from 21198 and testing it out.
RE #3: yeah, already grabbed the CPRs that worked from 21198 and that fixes it.

So it would seem that messing with the OEM rgu is screwing EVERYTHING up. As in, Confetti homescreen is broken if I mess with it at all. I have not yet acquired that level of jedi power, I guess :P

Expect further delays.

I thought you only have to remove these lines in the rgu file in OEMApps to get rid of the hp theme by default
