What you get over stock or Manila ROMs:
1- Windows Mobile 6.5 with FULL, TRUE TOUCH FLO KILLER XTREME XPERT TITANIUM INTERFACE
2- Lot's of expandability through ample Storage memory: 260 MB FREE storage memory
3- Despite the heavy Titanium interface load, base RAM memory usage is very optimized
4- Compatible with many HTC TF3D apps from Blackstone, Rhodium, Topaz, etc

ATTENTION:
- Cold boot is fast, but customization takes time because I decided to make most apps removable: ALL TITANIUM BETA APPS ARE UNINSTALLABLE AND READY TO BE REPLACED SHOULD NEWER VERSIONS ARISE

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Don't be affraid to flash: it's very easy once you spend a couple of minutes reading the sticky threads
  2. Avoid being the proud owner of an expensive brick: flash Hard-SPL first before flashing any custom (cooked) ROM
  3. Pick your choice, download it, use WinRAR to unzip the firmware (ROM) upgrade file "kovsimg.nbh"
  4. Flash it to the phone's ROM memory with USB PC method (RUU app) or SD card method

  • Should you need support, please give as much info as possible, including version number
  • We are all here to learn & share, my works are always public & open. Don't be shy to post, but SEARCH before posting and be respectful

23 jun 09: Here is the MISTERY SURPRISE included inside ALL of my newer ROMs (R3.57 and up) UNVEILED:

I prepared a COMPATIBILITY PACK for HTC APPS, and it's cooked inside the inner guts of my new ROMs, so they can keep being PURE XPERIA, but in the mean time 100% compatible with (almost) any Blackstone, Rhodium or Topaz apps/CABs !!!

Here are some CABs I have prepared and tested from OEM packages:
