Welcome to the
ROM Series
สูญหาย ใน เอเชีย


First I would like to Thank a few people who have helped me. 
And stuck in there for me when I asked so many Noob questions.

jerpelea:  who posted his kitchen and inspired me to start cooking, and has helped me a lot.

Onkolog: Thank you for your support and helping me get started.

Miri: Thanks for all your help and patience my friend, You are a great inspiration to me.

Bepe: for your great Kitchen tools

Ervius: For your Wonderful Visual Kitchen for Bepe's Tools

Da_G: Thanks for you sharing your kitchens

Kwbr: for your help and Blackstone cooking class. One of the most knowledgeable cooks on xda and a good inspiration to others

Olinex: for his HSPL. without him what would we do

NGRZ28: For some tweaks from your kitchen.  Thanks

NeoS2007: For your continued graphics support and help.

Sparkienl: For you providing the updates for the Ervius Visual Kitchen for our Blackstone.

OndraSter  For you Visual Kitchen. A Great Easy to use Kitchen.

And many other great cooks and friends here.


This ROM is available in 2 versions, with Standard & Lite for SPB MS.

** Before you FLASH this ROM-YOU MUST HAVE HSPL 1.56 OR USPL 2.5**

I have removed some of the programs. You can load them from cabs found here on XDA or let me know and I can provide it for you.

I have spent a lot of time working on fixing bugs and improving over all performance and added Many tweaks and fixes.

NEW Rom Online

=================================================N EW Version 17.1 WWE Extendir CFC HT Sense ================================

Lost In Asia V 17.1 21887 Extendir with Leo 2.01 HTC Sense 2.5 CFC

Lost In Asia V 17.1 21887 Lite SPB MS Extendir with Leo 2.01

Lost in Asia V 17.5 WM 6.5 21877 Extendir WWE HTC Sense 2.02 with Landscape support


How to install?: Copy the Extendir folder found in download to the root of your storage card. Flash the ROM as usual, then go to Applications folder in Start Menu and select Preset Installer. When Preset Installer comes up you can click next and install the programs or utilities you want by checking the boxes for each program. Then Click next and then install. A box with a bold check will install automatically to Device, if it has a faded check this means you will be prompted for install location. This is needed for programs that require user confirmation like FingerKeyboard and No HTC Messaging Fix. Manila is Partially loaded in ROM and Most installed post flash with Preset Installer. m6 color icons are only for 21xxx builds ONLY If you install Manila modifications that overwrite any manila files they will not be uninstallable. If you want them to be uninstallable install them to Extendir\WinDir\Manila\Manila Folder that contains the file you want to replace. Don't let device go to sleep during install!!. Device will reboot after installation. You can remove any of the programs as needed from the Remove programs in System. I have made many new .cab files with shortcuts to my Start Menu folders structure. So if you try to use these cabs on another ROM it likely will not work.

If you install LIA_Flipit by Wildberry, you will need to remove the following Reg Keys to make it work. And it works well.

AutoRotation = 1 (Delete This key)

ModuleName (Delete This Key)
WhiteList (Delete This Key)

Then Soft Reset, you can then configure which apps you want to rotate from the Configuration settings in Flipit.

===================================End of LIA V 17.1 WWE Extendir ===============================


On second boot the connection setup will run. Again be patient as it might start a few seconds after manila today screen is displayed.

What is the New Extendir? It is a file aliasing program that stores some of Windows Program files in a different directory and or on the Storage card.

This allows for a ROM to be built with fewer Files in windows and thus better performance.

Preset Installer is a Visual UC Interface which allows you to add your Cabs and customizations after Flash. It is not installed in the ROM but you can install it and the device is already compatible. See this Thread for More Info:


First let me say I do all this work as a hobby. I'm in no way looking for a income stream from my work. And you are in no way required to make any donations. However it makes me feel good and that my work is appreciated for the many hours spent working and flashing to make ROM's for the community.

Known Bugs or Issues
Known Bugs:

When using fix for disable HTC Messaging you will see a white screen on startup. This is normal and will go away in a few seconds.

Rhodium Phone Canvass or dialer contact button will not work without manila installed

To Update My Location in Weather you have to have WiFi turned on. 
It does not need to have a connection, just be on.

On music Tab in Manila, 
Music player is slow to recognize the library the first time

When installing the Fix for HTC messaging cab in Preset installer
Select the check box with a gray check mark so you can be prompted during install 

If you experience strange behavior try without storage card. 
I had to reformat mine. It was the cause of some of my problems

Please remember this is a TEST ROM and it is going to have some bugs. 
So please try to be helpful when replying bug reports.

A HARD RESET After Removing Battery for a few seconds & without storage memory is Highly Recommended after flash[/CENTER]

If you are having trouble with error at startup with opera try installing below

Working really well so far, been using it just over an hour.
Using around 46% memory on fresh boot. Gets higher as you run more progs/apps but seems to drop down really well again. Running around 51% after 45 mins. Good selection of apps included in the rom.
The messaging app seems to auto start, changes both bottom soft keys too.

Other than that great work Bob!

Also any plans to release a light version?
