Black Martini WM6.1
1 Martini, 2 Martini’s, 3 Martini’s......... FLOOR

Welcome to my First Blackstone WM6.1 Rom
Nearly 2 years after the legendary HTC Hermes Days of ROM cooking, Forum Action (we were loud those days and somewhat profane – but for a good cause), I am back with a stable and fast WM6.1 ROM for the Blackstone. Why WM6.1? Well 6.5 does not cut it yet – the builds available are too buggy and damn slow and things just don’t work right. When I get my hands on a newer build I will bake my first 6.5 ROM but for now if stability and speed are your main priorities then stick with WM6.1 (imho). Enough chit chat.... start flashing.

You need SPL1.56 if you are using USPL to flash or use HSPL.
This ROM is just the OS, no SPL nor Radio. No Warranties!

Overview of FULL ROM:
Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro
Build 21051 + others for stability
Topaz Imports
Free Storage Memory: 320 MΒ
Free Programs Memory: 115 MB

What’s In (the essentials and eye candy):
  • Manila v 2.0X with Manual Landscape Enabled so you can assign the home key or use AEbuttons (not inc.) to assign any key to rotation (note: can also enable gsensor manila autorotate via regedit)
  • Pocket Rar
  • DotFred TaskMan, RegEdit, Soft Reset, etc
  • MS Net Compact Framework 3.5
  • Brian’s TaskBar
  • Modified Panosha’s Charcoal Phone Skin (fixed call/video button)
  • HTC In Call Recording (loud and clear)
  • Finger Friendly Menus in all Applications + Menu Enhancements
  • Flash + ActiveX in Internet Explorer 6 & Opera 9.5 (no Opera bugs)
  • New Operator Connection setup
  • HTC E-mail Wizard
  • Facebook + full Manila Integration
  • HTC Calculator
  • OBEX Inbox
  • YouTube
  • HTC Threaded SMS
  • Topaz Keyboards
  • New Notification Manager + Enhancements
  • WinMob 7 StartUp Animation
  • GSensor Rotation enabled for Opera, Google Maps, Garmin Mobile XT, HTC Album, Calculator, SMS and MMS, Outlook Email, Start Menu Programs, System Settings, Media Player, WLM, etc...
  • HTC Voice Recorder
  • eT9MyWords
Whats Out (there are cabs floating around everywhere for these on xda-devs):
  • Sample Music
  • Cyberon Voice Speed Dial
  • Microsoft Update
  • Sample pictures
  • Welcome Centre
  • JetCet Print
  • Google Maps
  • MS MyPhone
  • ZIP
  • RSSHub
Registry Tweaks & Modifications:
  • SdkCerts
  • Auto Sleep in phone calls
  • Enable Clear Type in Landscape
  • Thinner Scroll Bars
  • Enable Screen Rotation from Screen Settings
  • D3D Drivers
  • New CommManager with 3G tab
  • Disabled Album OK minimize
  • Disabled Customer Feedback
  • Disabled Error Reporting
  • Disabled Security Warnings
  • + Many more
Screen Shots (aren’t they all the same?):


DOWNLOAD Minor Update:
Fixes for "Single Volume", Screen rotation during calls (disabled), Restored HTC Voice Recorder Link in Programs, Restored Facebook Integration in "My Contact Card".
Once installed go to the settings tab in manila, SOUND and toggle the single volume switch and then it works.
This update CAB only applies to the FULL Martini (Martini.rar) not the weak and mocktail versions below.


Weak Martini - A lighter version of the FULL ROM.

FREE Storage: 332 MB

Adobe PDF
MP3 trimmer
Streaming Media
Voice Recorder
OBEX Inbox
Pocket Rar
Dotfred System Tools
Windows Live and Messenger


Mocktail Martini - A stripped version of the FULL ROM.

If you use SPB shell or the likes, this is a great option as you have full flexibility in choosing your shell as well as custom apps.

FREE Storage: 347MB

As the WEAK MARTINI plus:
Manila TF3D2
New Contact Card
Task Manager


Optional Downloads for all 3 flavours:
OPTIONAL DOWNLOAD: NEW Start Menu from Topaz. This will also disable the programs TAB in manila.
OPTIONAL DOWNLOAD: Rhodium Dialer with landscape and auto rotate (ensure you install sdkcerts first (search forum for this cab). Fixed the cab to ensure baterry icon is in sync on the taskbar... Should have no issues now. enjoy
OPTIONAL DOWNLOAD: Opera Fix to enable push internet and to ensure your HD doesnt hang after closing opera.

I am uploading it to rapidshare right now. So far so good with the ROM. Only small issue that I do see is that when trying to update my contact card via facebook I am unable to do so. I am able to put in my login information but it won't update my contact card with the right information or photo.


This ROM is extremely fast for me. I love it. Keep up the great work. I also love the keyboard sound and the colors of the ROM very classic looking.
