Welcome to my kitchen!

Here's what's on the menu today...

This is an HTC Excalibur ROM, based on Windows Mobile 6.5. The current build number and date can be seen in the title of this thread. This will also work on the TMobile Dash (which is what's it's primarily setup for) and any other Excalibur variations.

I always build my ROMs with three main goals.
  • Eye candy.
  • Speed!
  • Smoothness, consistency and good esthetics.

I preconfigure a lot of things in my ROM, because when I flash it on my phone, I want it ready to go, how I'd want it. So, the ringtone, sms/email and other notifications are already set, as well as a background and key shortcuts.

I usually make 2 versions of the ROM. If you don't see one in the download directory, it either means I haven't uploaded it OR I'm not making one for the current release yet.

Here are the different versions and what they mean.

  • "IE6" includes the new IE6 browser
  • "IE5" includes the older IE5 browser (less RAM being used).

MMS
1. There is no interface to configure MMSC setting (had to do it via registry)
2. there is no default app for jpg viewing

Apart from this, seems very stable and fast.

Nice rom.

Did you take out the VPN ?

If yes: do you have the Connection Setup Tool cab ? Then the original HTC cab is too old..

the jpg association can be fixed this way:

open resco explorer, find any .jpg file, choose "action\open with", click "always use this program to open this file type" checkbox, and then choose menu/browse. from list select pimg.exe (this is picture viewer). choose select (left soft key) and done, now the jpg file is opened as usual.

Once again you cooked up a very nice rom. Thanks for the tip on how to fix the .jpg association issue. I just found it when trying different things out and someone already posted the fix for it.

Anyway it does seem that the connection setup does use older data then what I had before. It has not caused a problem yet but just thought I would mention it.
