After flashing it is recommended to perform a hard reset. Scroll down for faq and version history.

No radio, ipl or spl included. Please use an appropriate spl before flashing this rom.

This rom comes as it is and is meant for those that like the rom as close to stock as possible. All Topaz packages, mostly untouched but slightly tweakt here and there. So you basically get a 98% Topaz port without additions. When you want a fully tweaked rom I recommend Topix.

Thanks for all your feedback and support.

Add-ons
* Cyberon Voice Commander from the Blackstone 1.57 rom

FAQ
Q: How do I flash this rom?
First of all installl Hard-SPL from Cmonex. Read this thread carefully. Double check if the installation of Hard-SPL succeeded. Before flashing it is best to have a fully loaded battery.

When you downloaded the rom unpack the zip file and start CustomRUU.exe. It should be pretty self-explanatory. Don't panic. The flashing process and the first boot can take some time.

Q: How do I perform a hard reset?
Shut down the device. After that hold down VolUP + VolDown (simultaneously) and press the Power button once. Now a screen should appear asking you to restore the device to factory settings. Press VolUp to Confirm.

Q: I am having problems flashing the rom with CustomRUU.exe. Can I flash in another way?
You can try the official RUU for Blackstone to flash. Also flashing from SD card is an option. To flash from SD just rename ruu_signed.nbh to BLACIMG.nbh, copy it to the root of your SD card, and flash the rom from the tri-color screen by pressing the power button.

Q: I can rotate the screen by long-pressing the call button but how can I rotate it clockwise?
Using a Registry editor and edit HKLM/System/GDI/Rotation and change "LandScapeMode" from 1 to 4.

Q: How can I configure the softbuttons?
You can use Softkey Manager (blackstone mode) for that which you can find in Settings, or you can edit the registry:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\Manila]
"HomeLSKText"="Contacts"
"HomeLSKPath"="poutlook.exe"
"HomeLSKArguments"="contacts"
"HomeRSKText"=""
"HomeRSKPath"=""
"HomeRSKArguments"=""
Q: How can I enable threaded SMS?
By default threaded SMS is disabled in this rom. To enable threaded SMS you can use the threading sms tool in Settings->System.

Q: Although I can toggle BT beam from CommManager I want to restore the beam applet. How can I restore the applet?
Install this cab to restore the beam applet.

Q: I can't receive files with bluetooth
Enable beam from the Comm Manager.

Q: I can't turn on Data Connection in Comm Manager
This is standard behaviour of CommManager. It will be enabled when you:
1. configured your carrier datasettings (typically done during system setting by "Connection Setup".
2. start a network connection e.g. by opening a webpage in Opera or PIE.
Once the connection is established you can terminate the data connection in CommManager.

Q: How can I get applications to rotate?
You can rotate the screen by long pressing the call button. See cerato's post which explains adding applications to the sensor whitelist for auto rotation.

Q: Google Maps isn't in English
Some versions of Google maps use the language depending on your regional settings.

Onderwerp: Re: Wanted English - Got German.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The display language on
Google Maps is determined by the locale information on your mobile
device. As you discovered, changing the display language in your
device is the only way to resolve the issue at this time. Google Maps
for mobile currently supports Dutch, English, French, German, Italian,
and Spanish. If your phone is set to one of those languages and Google
Maps shows a different language, please let us know.


As always, we appreciate your feedback.


Q: How can I rotate the screen?
You can rotate the screen by long pressing the Call/Dial button. For autorotation of applications you have to add the applicationname to the sensor whitelist. Here is an example
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\HTCSENSOR\GSensor\WhiteList]
"Calculator"="CalculatorMain"
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\HTCSENSOR\GSensor\ModuleName]
"Calculator"="\\Windows\\htcCalculator.exe"
Search the forum for more examples.

Seems like a really cool ROM and I may just try it out now

Is landscape possible on this ROM.

I'm assuming you've installed no 3rd party apps like Flip It or Gyrator init?

By the way, could I ask why you choose to make it Topaz based and not Rhodium?

I've seen no ROM's based on Rhodium yet and just wanted to know whether there
was a problem with doing this.

Cheers for this anyways mate and keep up the hard work

For Manila to rotate you have to add a registry key:
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\Manila]
"EnableLandscape"="true"
And probably use a third party app like flip-it.

Nope, just plain vanilla

No big difference besides the phonecanvas/dialer. Only the the rhodium dialer is a 10mb extra for functions I don't use (like conference call). The (current) rhodium manila still has some bugs.

Cheers for the reply kwbr.

My last question is, are you running this ROM as of the moment and if so what
does it run like?

Is it quite fast and stable?

How high is memory usage after a hard reset?

Also, can I not flash this ROM using USPL?

No, I am running topix but this rom runs just fine, fast and stable.

Best Rom so far...
Wow - I cant believe this thread is so quiet!

I have tried all the Roms - Im a serial flasher!

This is by far the best, most stable and battery friendly that I have found.

I have a only applied a few personal tweaks for myself - everything just works.

Thank you so much for your work on this one

Is there any chance of releasing the Kitchen for this as I want to look at cooking up something good based around this one - or can you point me in the right direction to extract the rom and I can cook from there!

Does this plain vanilla have all the HTC and 3rd party apps that can be found in stock Blackstone ROMs? Like CVSD, QuickGPS, Adobe Reader etc.?
