Finally Working Bluetooth problem

For ATOM/ATOM PURE ONLY

Download link moved to post #2

Step by step upgrading
NOTE: These steps only apply if you have an ATOM/ATOM Pure.

Basically, there are three steps to flash a custom ROM to your ATOM.

1. Choose and download your choice of custom ROMs
2. Flash the custom ROM to your Atom using the Device Software Update Utility (DSSU)
3. Flash the custom ROM using MiniSD

Preparation
Backup your personal information using a program such as PIM Backup (freeware). Also make sure your phone has at least a 50% charge. You need M$ ActiveSync 4.5 for XP or Windows Mobile Device Center for VISTA and 7 to upgrade your device through PC.
Please read through this guide and download the all the necessary files beforehand. That way, you know exactly what you're getting into.

Choose and download your custom ROM
There are many, many custom ROMs out there for the Atom.
Look through the threads and find a ROM that you like. Custom ROMs differ in their preinstalled software, system settings, performance tweaks, and more.
ROMs usually come compressed in a .zip file. Extract the downloaded ROM file to somewhere on your hard drive temporarily in preparation for the next step.

Flash Custom ROM Using DSSU
Copy the custom ROM file (usually came with 6 files) to C:\WINDOWS\Temp folder you just extracted.
Once you've got everything hooked up correctly, run the Device Software Update Utility (DSSU).exe program inside of the C:\WINDOWS\Temp folder you just copied. Follow the onscreen instructions to flash the custom ROM to your phone. Reboot your phone at the end and you're finished. Enjoy the new custom ROM!

In case you can't update the ATOM in active mode, you may need to update by entering bootloader mode. Hold the down power and camera button and use your stylus to press reset button at the same time until you see monochrome bootloader screen. Then connect your phone via USB cable to your computer.
Follow the onscreen instructions to flash the custom ROM to your phone. Reboot your phone at the end and you're finished. Enjoy the new custom ROM!

Flash Custom ROM Using MiniSD
*Not recommended
Here's the step how to flash your Atom using MiniSD.

1. Extract downloaded custom ROM to somewhere on your harddrive.
2. Cut first 12byte header of diskimage_Ver.nb0 using hex editor.
3. Rename diskimage_Ver.nb0 to diskimg.nb0
4. Rename ExtendedROM.img to extended.img
4. Copy both files diskimg.nb0 and extended.img to your miniSD

Now, hold the down power and camera button and use your stylus to press reset button at the same time until you see monochrome bootloader screen. The Atom will flash the new ROM automaically. Once it done, setup the device and enjoy the new custom ROM.

I'm wondering and really hope if this is very CLEAN, FAST & STABLE WM6.5 ROM in LOW BATTERY CONSUMPTIONS for O2 XDA Atom. Thanks before GlossyX1, you're the Atom ROM masterpiece too!

Gloss,

Tried for half a day now, this is what I have :
- overall, this built is much better than the previous, in terms of memory and battery
- overall functions and programs ran smoothly and no problems
- calls and receiving calls all good
- I can't seem to set the ringer mode to ring and vibrate but the phone by default now will ring and vibrate even if not set for vibrate, so no complains there
- persian blue works nicely to compensate for WM6.5 not able to locate any bluetooth device to beam
- Tested and still unable to sync/add more than 2 bluetooth devices, but at least I managed to get activesync working and also my handsfree, that's all I want anyway.
- taps and display are all fast, no issues there.
- booting from hard and soft reset are coming up nicely now
- one advice for user of this ROM is don't try to unlock the Extended ROM and use, the Extended ROM not very stable and when it crash, you will have problem reseting and booting your device, takes a long time and a few soft resets

But overall for me, this is a good, clean and stable ROM(forgetting about the bluetooth issue). Thanks to Glossyx1 and Helloworld1.............
Let's hope someone comes up with a permanent fix for the bluetooth issue, then this will be the defacto WM6.5 for Atom's!

What do you mean by unlock the EXTENDEDRom? I use this ROM for several days and found no problem on my device. Now I uninstalled PersianBluetooth to save more memory.

Did you found another issue? Has anyone else try this ROM?

Waiting for your feed. I'm not tested yed to install SPB mobile, but there's no issue when I install another cab application. You have to try it by your self and give us a report. ATOM is QVGA device. thanks

Gloss,

What I mean by unlocking the Ext ROM is that I installed the unlock extended cab file so that the Ext ROM will be visible via file explorer or Resco explorer. Unless the cab I am using is not working properly for WM6.5(it's meant for WM6) but after I unlock it and became visible, I installed a few application on the Ext ROM to try, it was working fine until I need to soft reset the device(as some application do), then the Ext ROM is no longer visible and takes a long time to reboot(think OS can't get at the Ext ROM). Well, other issues is as my previous post, the ring mode can't set to ring and vibrate but it vibrates anyway. Then the same problem with bluetooth not able to add more than 2 devices still there. Otherwise I would say all is prefect.
As for SPB Mobile Shell, I tried installing it before under Helloworld's ROM(21869) before but does not work. The application installed okay but just could not get it to run, do not know why? Maybe some software conflict?
