coming soon... Motherload 1.5 update
- added UCWEB Browser
- fixed Windows Live Messenger
- reverted to working Office & Onenote packages from stock ROM
- updated Backlight Controller to v0.9.5.1

In addition to my parallel series of "vanilla" ROMs for the iPAQ 910c/912c/914c, I have decided to begin a new series of pre-loaded ROMs called "Motherload". Why? Because I got sick of spending hours setting up my phone after each new ROM flash, that's why.

Once Celio Corp. decides to release working Redfly drivers for WM6.5, you'll probably see this ROM move to that OS. For now this is based off my earlier custom WM6.1 release (and seems to maintain the same speed).

Base OS: Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional build 21042
  • included: IE6 Mobile, Office & OneNote, Enterprise & VPN, .NET CF 3.5
  • excluded: Entertainment (games), Transcriber, Welcome Center

HP Factory OEM changes:
  • original GoogleSearch and GoogleMaps removed
  • Cyberon VoiceCommander removed
  • all startup apps disabled (moved to StartUp_bak folder) except iPAQ Data Configuration
  • most HP apps included (see below)

Accessories:
  • CCDialer 2.0
  • ClearVue PDF 2.42.513
  • HP Photosmart Mobile 2.11.5.37

Browsers & Clients:
  • ceSnipURL
  • ceTwit 2
  • Facebook IM 2.15
  • Facebook (client) 0.14
  • Iris Browser 1.1.6
  • Skyfire Browser 0.9.0.9333
  • Windows Live Mobile (with Messenger) 10.6.0046.0800

Maps & Search:
  • Basic GPS 2.60.5
  • Google Maps Mobile 3.0.1.4
  • Noni GPS Plot 2.80c
  • GPS Viewer b1210
  • iPAQ GPS QK Position
  • Windows Live Search 4.5.3129.0

Utilities
  • A2DP Toggle 1.1
  • AppToDate
  • 61x/91x Backlight Controller 0.9.1.7 (suggest you map this to VoiceCMD button for quick indoor-outdoor changes)
  • Call Firewall 1.4
  • Default InputMethod
  • HP PrintSmart Mobile 1.1.0.9
  • NoData 3.08.04.10
  • PIM Backup 2.8.0.0
  • pmClean 1.07
  • SUN Java 2.0.1.0.07
  • Total Commander 2.51
  • WiFiFoFum 2.2.12
  • WinRAR 3.80
  • WM5torage 1.8

Miscellaneous & OS tweaks:
  • Adobe Flash Lite 3.1
  • Single-line date
  • ObexInbox 0.947
  • GPRS disconnect button & timer
  • Battery 100
  • TwitToday 1.3
  • GPS Toggle 1.9

The ROM file weighs in at 73.1 MB, and takes a while to Clean Boot the first time after flashing (so be patient). It starts you off with about 100 MB of free storage memory and over 70 MB of free program memory.

Known bugs:
  • A2DP Toggle settings will not launch from Control Panel; must be accessed by running "\Program Files\Teksoft\A2DPToggle\Settings.exe" directly

Download here!
(Note: uploading ROM to Mediafire at time of this post...)

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.

Feedback welcome. If you see an updated version of anything here, post a link and I'll include it the next release. I'm trying to keep the software selection on the legal safe side too.

Yeah I don't get the first bug at all. Strange. But you're right about the second one.
