This is another WM6.1 ROM (build 21014) AKU 1.6.0[COLOR] relesed out for testing. The released ROM uses 12MB of pagepool. and using 1.60 set of drivers.

It is Based on new IOLITE released by HTC. 90% of it is iolite...

MAIN Feature:

This ROM can be dumped and recooked. Unlike many of the cooks, no RGU have been deleted. No DSM has been deleted. And most of all, the ROM has not been crippled against dumping by deleting IMGFS signatures. So feel free to dump and modify upto your taste. And share the knowledge with the community. We can improve more by sharing the knowledge than keeping it secret.

My special falicitations to
eepmazo (KhanX)
for daring to join me in this crusade, by releasing his dumpable ROM too.

It is Only WWE ROM

dated: 29.Jan.2009
OS 5.2.21014 (Build 21014.1.6.0)

ULDR Trimmed to have more storage space
Patched XIP Modulle for removing cert/signed issues

(You can install old and unsigned programs without problem)
12MB Pagepool
HTC 1.60 drivers
Customer feedBack (a nonsense) Removed

With all this the memory structure becomes as follows:--

101.6 MB RAM 54.42MB Free

General Notes: (Please Read before updating)

- There is readme.rtf inside the package. Pl read ir carefully.
- Remove SD card before update!
- There is no extended rom... JUST OS AND RADIO!
- You MUST install HARD SPL before going over a custom ROM.
- If you are using the UC's SDConfig.txt (on your storage card) then it would be better if you remove the SIM also.

Reasons for using 1.60 Drivers instead of 3.18:-Reasons:-
I encountered many problems with almost all the new ROMs cooked with 3.13 or 3.18 set of Drivers.
Following were the main problems:-

1. The Prog Memory goes down from 102 MB to meagre 84MB causing shortage.
2. The Manila 2D sliding is sometimes sticky with or with out 3D drivers.
3. Many of the programs dont run on them.
4. While using any of the programs sometimes the device suddenly used to stops responding for 2-3 seconds.​

So I begin to ask myself, after all, what have we gained with new set of drivers???????????
And what is wrong with using a bit older drivers till we get a better and stable ones from HTC

So, here are my effort to:

1. Use 1.60 Set of drivers.
2. Remove 3D drivers (sorry bally3)
3. The XIP is all re-done. And the ROM is re-tuned.
4. Downgraded the Radio to

1. The Prog Memory increases from 84 MB to mere 101+ MB
2. The Manila 2D sliding is butterly smooth.
3. Most of the programs sould run now.
4. The device not stops responding any more.​

!!!!!!!!!!!!At least I am very happy and more satisfied now.!!!!!!!! bye bye to driver set 3.18

You Rock!

Hi Shekhar

Will there be a Lite version. Am still using your previous Lite version and am loving it. It's so much more customizable that way !!!

Please...a Lite version will make many a person's day!

Thanks for all the effort! You rock!

How about RAM?

Master c_shekhar, first of all thanks for your work!
Just a couple of questions. Why so much difference in free RAM between this ROM and 21014aCS? It's all footprints? And will you build a lite version?
