Hi and welcome to my ROM thread. This is RC2 (release candidate 2) of my Snap based ROM for the Excalibur (Dash, Dopod, etc).

The XIP (kernel) and SYS (main system files) are directly ported from HTC newest handset, the Snap.

This ROM includes only the stock applications for now (with the exception of a few things, like omapclockset and celetask) as it's meant to be a community based ROM where we can ALL work together, chip in and make suggestions to make the fastest and best ROM for the Excalibur.

To activate the weather panel, use the Activate Weather.cab in the "\My documents" folder on the phone and reboot.

The pagepool is set at 8 megs (up from the stock 4) for better speed and general "snappiness". You can lower it yourself by using the pagepool_changer application on the ROM's nbh file. I like mine at 8 and could care less about available RAM as long as the phone is fast and responsive

I will add more as more feedback is provided, but for now let's test this first release and see how it performs I hope you like it.

INSTRUCTIONS for flashing:

You can look at this great guide found here or you can follow my instructions below...

Hell, look at both to make sure you're doing this right!!

1. Run Auto.bat included in the archive. It should resent a black command prompt window.

2. Make sure you remove your storage card from the phone before the next steps.

3 .Follow the instructions in the black window. Do NOT reboot when the SDA unlocker tells you to reboot the phone. It's not necessary.

4. You might get a prompt asking you if you want to run the spl program. Just say yes. At that point you should get a white screen.

5. If for any reason you're not seeing a white screen, you did something wrong and you need to try again.

6. Flash the ROM following the instructions in the flashing utility.

You can expect the phone to be "stuck" on the green windows mobile screen for about 2 1/2 minutes the first time. After that, it should only take about 40-45 seconds for the phone to reboot.

INSTRUCTIONS for recovery in case something goes wrong:

Turn your phone completely off. While pushing the camera button, plug in your usb cable. The tricolor, bootloader screen will come up and you can flash your regular OEM ROM which can be downloaded from one of the stickies.


I recommend flashing the modified bootloader made by jockeyw2001. It's attached to the third post.
What it does is, it CID unlocks your phone, so you don't have to use the softSPL everytime you want to flash a ROM. It also makes recovery from a bad flash much easier, where you dont have to hunt for your original manufacturer's ROM to load in order to resurect the phone.

I recommend flashing the hacked bootloader attached to this post to make future flashings easier, as there will probably be many revisions to this ROM (depending on YOUR input).

Nice! Now if only my replacement battery would get here already!

Two questions... (1) what version of Java is it running, (2) does Innercircle work?
