Appreciation

Quote:

Thanks to folks in Xda-developers, who had in one way or another, made this custom ROM possible. Special thanks go to Bepe, Ervius, Vistang for their kitchens and tools, sparkienl, bobsbbq, kwbr for all their advices & guidances. If I've missed anybody, it's not intentional so please accept my apologies and appreciations. There's just too many folks in Xda I need to thank!

Despite holding a non-development responsibility in my IT professional job, I still have a soft spot for development, and therefore, I have been developing software during my free time, and some of them was showcased in my own blog

The year of 2010, is a new era for me, as I have "progressed" beyond software development, and ventured into Windows Mobile operating system image development, or better known as "ROM cooking", encouraged by the availability of easy-to-use tools, and of course the friendly chef community in xda-developers.

dZenkinZ © Merlion Leo is my first attempt of the ROM building venture, for HTC HD2 Leo. The primary objective of the effort is to have a customized ROM based on my personal needs, with the emphasis on striking a balance between performance/stability and eye candy. So you may find that some of the included/excluded features not something you would expect of a "public ROM". Nevertheless, recognising that this is probably the first Leo ROM that's based on WWE (WorldWide Edition, i.e. English ROM) with Simplified Chinese display & input support, I have decided to share my work with you so that this provides an alternative to rest of the ROMS out there in xda-developers.

Although I have a full time job in a MNC, and probably don't need additional income stream to meet my daily living expenditure, but your donation, or your post of appreciation, will definitely motivate and propel me further in continuing to share my work with the community.

Frequently Asked Questions


Please read this section first before you post your question!



1. The device hangs on me when I click on "Sounds & Display" in the Setting tab.

Quote:

I am still working on this bug. However, this can be easily resolved by going to "Sounds & Notifications" in Windows control panel, tap on the Notification tab. You only need to do it once, and subsequent access to "Sounds & Display" in the Setting tab will not hang anymore. You can access Windows control panel either by going to "menu right soft key" in Setting tab, or clicking "Start > Settings folder"

Note: Since version 1.90 onwards, this bug has been fixed.



2. Can you be so kind and let me know how to change the Operator Logo Download? i.e. Where to place the clear logo?

Quote:

The logo file name is 256x64.png, stored in \Windows directory. As the name suggest, the image size of the logo should be 256 px by 64 px, with a transparent background. I've created a couple of logos for your usage, if your telco is not "Starhub" or you prefer to have no logo displayed on your home screen. Go to the download section, and download the logo zip file.

3. I just flashed to the latest ROM from Zenkinz .... but that is because I face the unvoluntary hard reset again.

Quote:

The cited problem is not unique to my ROM. It affects most custom ROM, specifically when you flash a custom ROM after another. The cause, is believed to be related to the fact that the device storage is not formatted when a custom ROM is being updated to the device. The file residue inadvertently causes instability and therefore the recommended corrective step is to format your phone storage using the mtty process (not to be mistaken by hard reset, which is merely clearing your phone storage to the default ROM image)



4. Can someone please tell me how to install this ROM? I downloaded it and extracted and only see a NBH file


Quote:

The downloadable package only contains NBH file, which is the image of the ROM that's to be flashed into your device. You need a ROM update utility (RUU) to flash the downloaded image. i1magic has summarised the steps to flash the rom very well, and you can reference from here



5. Can you please tell me how to add and replace a few icons for my extra programs. Where to copy your new .png on my unit?

Quote:

First of all, download the extra icons from my iconpack (see the download section). You can copy all the icons, or just the selected icons to a folder in your device, such as \Application Data\Icons. Then use an icon changer such as CSMI or JWMD Icon Changer to replace the icon for your extra programs. I personally prefer CSMI for incremental change (i.e. just change the additional programs), and JWMD Icon Changer for mass change (i.e. change all the icons)




6. My HD2 is unable to determine and update the weather for
"My location".

Quote:

Make sure you have "HTC Location Service" turned on for the above weather service. You can turned it on via "Settings tab > Location"

7. How do I add new ebooks to show on the eReader tab? [applicable only to v2.10 and above]

Quote:

Use this application to automatically add your ebooks to the eReader tab
