pcarvalho eXtreme ROM 3.19 WM6.5 OS 5.2.21911/23569/28014/24001/ 29022 WWE R0

Development has been resumed, my thanks to all that made this possible

HTC POLARIS WM65 BUILDs: 21911 [COM2] / 23569 [COM5] / 28014 [WMD] / 24001 / 29022
[READ THESE FEW POSTS BEFORE PROCEEDING]

Roms sorted by date.

UPDATE:
29022 is up, follow the white rabbit...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=8079

this is a fix release...sound issues should be gone...had to remove htc volume control is it still has issues...fixes minor gfx glitches...updated to lastest and probably final leak version of wm6.5.3 (29022)...will from now on work on unresolved issues and finalize rom...this will still take some time due to work...

updated physics engine and utask app by ultrashot...my thanks to him...

patched htc album to novsync, faster scrolling once cache is made...

removed no longer supported apps (my phone and marketplace)...if u need them install via cab...

Important Note:
if you have radio 1.65.xx.xx installed on your polaris, downgrade the radio 1st...
it will not allow you to flash any other ROM (i couldn't even flash official HTC ROM when i tried a ROM with that radio)
link 2 a radio that allows downgrade
There seem to be HR and MC losing data issues with some roms, so i recommend flashing a htc original rom and only then this one, before proceeding as always make a backup of all data before attempting to use this rom...

This is released as "WORK IN PROGRESS" so you can if you want, post what works/what doesn't...
in time i'll correct bugs and release when it seems fit...meanwhile i'll actively answer all major questions, giving all support which is always nice to have...hope you all like it...
cheers

my thanks also to all those that appreciated my work, support it and have sent me some coffee for my long nights awake working for all of you



ScreenShots:

Build 21911:


Build 23569:


Note: Both have similar software, only major diference is button layout.



Original HTC ROM:
RUU_Polaris_HKCSL_WWE_3.19.831.3_radio_sign_25.85. 30.07_1.59.42.15_Ship
RUU_Polaris_HKCSL_WWE_3.19.831.3_radio_sign_25.85. 30.07_1.59.42.15_Ship mirror
flash this rom 1st if you have any stability issues


do not flash if you cant handle BETA software, this 6.5.X has issues, lots of them, its normal to be so as its still in development

small tweaks:
1. to make screen more touch sensitive when aligning screen, tap on the cross with the least pressure possible...

2. want to autolock device? goto start>settings>system>smart lock...

3. want to hide contacts from SIM card? then advanced config will be your friend...

Things people are always asking about:

Q: When will a new version be released?
A: when im done testing and i think its good for most people...

Q: Will other languages other than english (WWE) be made?
A: simple answer...no...maybe in 2010...

Q: Can you make a 3D/Lite/XYZ version? and when will it be out?
A: yes i can make it...as long as i have time, it will be out when downloads provide me with the info that people want more of it and i have time to make/test it...

Q: Can you make a build based on COM2/3/4/5/Z?
A: yes, i can...but ill be the judge of when and how ill make it...cooking takes a lot of time and whatever i release is always about quality...patience please...

Q: What is the diference between COM2/COM4/WMD/XYZ branch?
A: the most noticeble is until COM2 its old style (WM61) above COM3 its new style (WM65X with bottom buttons)...the rest, have no idea...

Q: Whats the difference between 3D and non3D version?
A: they differ in the drivers...as name says...one has opengl drivers and less 16Mb of ram because of them...the other has not and 16Mb more than 3D version of same rom...the rest is the same (programs/tweaks/customization)...and no you cant install P3D Drivers on non3D rom cause it will break compatibility...

Q: Is there any diference in speed between 3D and non3D version?
A: simple answer...yes, thanks to gfxboost that is included. but at a cost of 16Mb of RAM for DDI drivers...so that means programs (some) can be crashing because of lack of...opera/youtube are 2 of them...but i also wouldn't call non3D slow at least wm6.1 wise...you'll be the judge...

Q: Tested incoming /outgoing calls... but cannot speak or hear...plus camera all black...whats wrong?
A: You have the wrong radio version installed...change it! radio 1.59.xx.xx and above should work...

Q: Can i run manila 2.1/2.5/2.6 on my polaris?
A: Yes you could if someone made the port (someone like me)...but...you will never see it running simply because there isnt enough RAM/ROM to handle it, there are no fully working opengl drivers...and like so...our polaris simply doesn't meet the minimum sys specs to be able to fully run manila 3D...even if someone wanted to make the port...id just say: just buy a HD2! its cheap compared with the all work you'll have ahead...

@ pcarvalho
I think ... that your rom have more ram available.
Sorry for that but i have only one Polaris for testing (with your rom inside now)so i don't remember exactly the ammount of ram.
And something else...Why the progressive bar (in abum video) always missing in all the latest roms?
