XDA Mobile 6 Release 3
Making your Wizard what it should be

XDA Mobile 6 Release 3 (XM6r3 for short) is the third version of the popular XM6 rom for the Wizard. The base rom is the same, but lots of new features, and functionalities, and fixes to a few bugs found in XM6r2a.

There is both a Full (packed to the gills with apps and utilities) and a Lite (not Vanilla, or Clean, but a "Less Filling") version of this rom.

XM6r3 is built on the OS 5.2.318 Build 15342.4.0.01 rom that was provided to us by InGeNeTiCs from Howard Forums. While this is not the "newest" release of WM6, it is the last known release that was built for the Wizard (ie: its not a port from another HTC Device). Various pieces of the base rom have been upgraded, so some of it is stuff ported from other phones so that it can have newer functionality. Overall, I feel this base is very stable and fast and makes a great base to cook on.

Please Note: this ROM was NOT intended to push the limits on speed optimization or memory optimization. It was made to be functional, stable, and something that I myself wanted and will use. I've found it to very quick and responsive (especially with Overclocking with BatteryStatus), and so far Battery life has been very good for me and those beta testing this. If you have a Battery Drain issue, make sure you flashed back to an official rom before you upgraded to this one, as that should correct extended rom corruption that has been shown to cause battery draining. BatteryStatus is NOT included in this ROM due to how fast changes come out with this application, and not everyone likes it or uses it. If you want to overclock or use other features of BatteryStatus, you are welcome to download and install the latest version of BatteryStatus yourself. I personally use it, and have OMAP set to 247MHz with CPUscalar set from 143 to 247 and Boost set to 260Mhz.

Base ROM Information
The base rom was an "Official" Wizard WM6 ROM that was part of the development cycle of WM6 inside of Microsoft (Dogfood as they call it). The base rom was not a port of another device rom with drivers and stuff pieced and parted onto this one, but this was an actual Wizard WM6.
  • Windows Mobile 6, OS 5.2.318 Build 15342.4.0.01
  • ROM Version: WWE
  • ROM Date: 08/11/06
  • Protocol:
There is no Radio, IPL, SPL or Extended ROM.

What's In XDA Mobile 6 Release 3?
Both versions have the following (Bolded items are new / upgraded from XM6r2a)
  • Internet Sharing via BlueTooth DUN (like WM5) is back and available! WM6 Internet Sharing is still there, the BT DUN is in addition to that!
  • Schap's Advanced Configuration Tool and VoIP Setup Tool
  • Office 2007
  • 9 Button "Touch" Style CommManager from the Kaiser
  • VoIP (See next post for instructions to set this up)
  • Arcsoft Composer with SMS and MMS split apart
  • pBar 1.4 (replaces HTC X-Button)
  • Notepad editor
  • Pocket RAR
  • SIP Config 2.0.1
  • SK tsync (replaces SynchroTime in XM6r2a)
  • Total Commander Beta 2.5 Beta 3

  • Esmertec Java Manager (replacing Intent Midlent Manager)
  • Oxios Memory
  • PHM Alt-Tab (mapped to Button 5 by default)
  • Windows Live Search searches via Google
  • WM5torage 1.75

  • Regional Settings default to English (United States) and use a slash for the date seperator (M/dd/yyyy)
  • Menu sounds work by default
  • Pressing the "End Call" button does not disconnect GPRS but minimized the active application. Pressing and holding the "End Call" button for about 5 seconds will do a GPRS Disconnect
  • Internet access over ActiveSync (USB) connection works (You must apply a registry fix on your PC first. See the next post for the fix)
  • Upgraded .NET compact to 2.0 SP2
  • delayedexec.exe is in \Windows but is not configured. See this post for details on using this.

The Full Release also contains the following
  • PocketCM 0.9 a finger friendly contact manager
  • WinXplore 0.3.2
  • Mortscript 4.0
  • mUn designed onscreen Keyboard skin (grey/green one)
  • Mobile Justice (a security app that will send an SMS if an unauthorized SIM is placed in your phone)
  • TodayAgenda Beta 1.0
  • ClearTemp replaces StartClean
  • Pocket Screen Capture
  • HTC Audio Manager
  • CicleBT (Toggle BlueTooth on and off)
  • 1-Calc Lite
  • PeekPocket 1.2 replaces WiFiFoFum
  • MoDaCo NoData (so you can turn off data sources)
  • Smartskey 0.56 (DPAD is set to 0 in the .ini so the up and down scrolling works in the Phone dialer as expected in WM6)
  • DotFred's SoftKeyAppletEx
  • WM5NewMenu

Mods made from XM6r2a
In addition to the apps listed above, the following fixes and mods were made to improve the user experience on XM6r3
  • Fixed reg entries for Glyphcache, File Cache, and File Filter Cache.
  • Fixed the mapping of .pdf extensions.
  • Fixed AltTab so it shows up correctly in the Buttons app
  • Corrected the shortcut location of Smartskey
  • Added more items to the PIE Favorites
  • D pad now works differently with PIE. Up and down presses on the D Pad stay the same, but pressing right jumps forward a page and pressing left jumps backwards a page. Makes going through websites easier (IMO).
  • Fixed the A2DP registry for sampling
  • Registry Entries for PIE Connections to speed page loading
  • Registry Entries to increase In Call Volume

You MUST have an IPL and SPL at 2.xx or higher (BOTH not just one or the other).

You MUST be running ActiveSync 4.5 on Windows XP (Vista comes with the correct sync utility, although there have been issues reported about Vista and sync'ing with PPC's so be aware of that).

Before you attempt to upgrade to this ROM, Please follow this thread to learn how to flash roms, CID unlock your phone, and how to fix issues you may run into! It is also recommended that you flash your phone with a Windows XP computer and not Vista. It will work with Vista, but if you run into problems Vista can't talk to a phone in Bootloader mode!

  • I HIGHLY Recommend that you flash back to an official rom before upgrading to this (or any) custom rom so you have a clean base (and correct any Extended ROM corruption you might have). G4 users would flash back to their provider's latest official release or the Wizard Love ROM. G3 users can use T-Mobile 2.26 for a good base.
  • If you use BatteryStatus (its NOT included in the rom!) to overclock, I don't recommend overclocking above 260Mhz, and the CPUscaler settings in BatteryStatus should not be set to a min lower than 143MHz (or your device may not wake back up after going to sleep).
  • Newer Radio ROMs on WM6 have had issues in the past (especially for Cingular / AT&T users). T-Mobile 2.19 (UK or NL versions) seems to be the most stable, but you can now run newer radios with the attached cab. This cab also works for some other providers but not for all, so its up to you to test what works for your phone.

I've moved the credits to the 5th post of this thread as this post has become too big.

Known Issues
  • The base rom has a bug / feature where if GPRS is active, unanswered calls may not show up as a missed call and may not give notification of the unanswered call. If this happens, the unanswered call shows up in the history as an answered call with a duration of 1 or 2 seconds.
  • Every WM6 rom I've tried has an issue where if you use the "Press and Hold" of the CommManager button to switch to and from Vibrate mode, that the ringtone may not play when not in vibrate mode. To work around this go to Settings > Phone and play your ringtone and your ringing will work again.

Radio ROMs
Here are links to a few of the Radio ROMs that I've used with XM6r3. Remember that Radio's newer than the 2.19 radio may require the WM6 Fix CAB that is attached to the first post of this thread.

Voice Command

How to not have a 24hour Clock (or how to show AM/PM)

This works on all WM6 roms
  • Go to Start > Settings > System > Regional Settings
  • Make sure you have the correct Region selected
  • Click on the Time tab
  • Click on the drop down box for Time Style
  • Notice the little up and down arrows? This is a scrolling region in this dropdown. Click the up arrow a couple of times and you'll find h:mm:ss tt

Thats it. Microsoft is amazing at having a 2 line scrolling region on this dropdown. You'd think they would have had at least 3 or 4 lines show up for chosing (and it would be more obvious that its a scrolling region then too).

GPRS / MMS Setups

First, here is The Ultimate Thread with people posting operator settings for about all providers! In the first post is a link to the thread where walshieau is creating an automated way of setting up all of these!

What follows is a list of automated and manual ways of setting up GPRS and MMS for various cell providers and regions that I've collected:

VoIP Setup Instructions
Thanks to joaosousa for the following steps!

!!! Only Tested in a Wifi network !!!
  • Install the wm6voip.cab.
  • Restart your Wizard (Soft Reset).
  • Go to Start > Programs > Toobox and open Setup VoIp Aplication.
  • Insert your VoIP account information.
  • Restart your wizard (Soft Reset).
  • Now you should be able to use VoIP, check the status of the service in the today screen.

This didn't work? Then please check this thread:

Connecting XM6r3 to the Internet via ActiveSync 4.5 on Windows XP
  • For those having issues connecting to the internet via Active Sync, cut and paste this code onto your PC in a file called net_over_activesync.reg and run it (on your PC not your phone)
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows CE Services]

Splash Screens and Splash Only RUU for G4
  • For G4 users, I've attached a zip file with the Splash Screens of this rom (since you don't get them when you use the shell tool). As I understand it, this is completely safe for a G4 as its nothing but splash screens (no OS, IPL, SPL, Extended ROM, etc, just splash and htc logo screens). I've also placed the .bmp files that make up the splash screen in the zip file so you can see them directly before flashing this. Before anyone asks, yes, the htc logo one is grainy. I had to do that due to size limitations of the file. I tried for a couple of hours to get a nicer version to work but it wouldn't display correctly (seems to have to be pretty low res / non-complex)
  • If you have problems flashing the above RUU on a G4, then extract this http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=29158&d=1152698784 and pull the nk.nbf file out of the above Splash Screen file and put it into the directory of this one and run this RUU. You can use the same method for flashing the Radio Only ROM (pull the nk.nbf file out of the radio only rom and put it into the directory of this RUU and run it). Thanks anichillus for that link! You can also check this thread for another RUU that is in English and seems to work for most G4 users. Thanks Vippie!

Weather Panel Setup

See my post in the Wizard forum on how I setup WeatherPanel. It will give you a fixed dll with correct moon phases through 2008, new/better Moon phase icons, and a cool theme called Chameleon-240 QVGA. I dumped SBSH Pocket Weather after seeing this setup :)

Hermes Black Cabs that may be of Interest
Transcriber can be added back into XM6r3 by using the Black 3 Add-on CABs file. There may be others in it that may be of interest also for some. Included in this file is Cyberon VoiceCommander, Cyberon Voice Dial, VIjay555 utils, and a Slingbox patch (none of these I've tested) and Adobe Reader LE.

Turning off Word Auto Completion
Some people do not like how Windows Mobile tries to suggest words that you may be typing. If you are one of those people, jacob-mda wrote up a post on how to turn it off. Check out This Thread.

Auto Completion for Spanish
User peu found the file to change the auto completion of words to Spanish. You can check his post here for details and a link.

New DialPad to match the CommManager
The EquinoXe was successful at pulling out the dial pad from the HTC Touch and it matches up with the CommManager in XM6 very nicely (see pic attached below). I've attached the CAB to this thread, so if you'd like to use this dialpad, just download and install. Cool! :cool: WARNING: If you install this, you can't just uninstall it. It requires a HARD RESET or you have to reflash this rom to go back to the original dialpad that was included in WM6r2! Some love this DialPad and the features of it, and others don't like it.

You can find skins for this dialpad HERE.

If you prefer the standard dialpad, you can find skins for it HERE.

BatteryStatus (for Overclocking, CPUScalar, and much much more)
BatteryStatus is a very popular utility around here and for good reasons. Currently its in a beta phase and the author is releasing new versions of the beta constantly so I decided not to put it in the rom and let people install whatever build of it they want. Also, some versions of BatteryStatus have been known to cause excessive battery drain, so be aware of that too. You can find it in the Official BatteryStatus thread and if you do use it, feel free to give feedback on it in that thread as they are always looking for ways to improve it.

NOTE: If you do use overclocking, I recommend you use the OMAP Apps tab to setup Camera to be at 195Mhz as it can mess up the display if you are overclocked and doing the camera.


I'm always updating these first posts, so check here periodically for new information!

Included App Info

Info on Included Apps

PocketCM 0.9
This is a "finger friendly" (ie: you scroll and select with your finger) app that replaces the standard Contact Manager (although the standard contact manager is still there). To learn more about PocketCM and help with this project, head over to http://www.pocketcm.com (That link is also built into the PIE Favorites right on your phone with this rom :)). Quentin is doing some amazing work on this and other cool things (like a nice SIP keyboard input that is similar to an iphone type thumb keyboard). Quentin was nice enough to give me permission to include PocketCM in this rom (per his request, you are not to distribute this app without his permission).

For those that don't want to run PocketCM and want the standard Conctact manager back you can do the following:

Change "String 1" value from "\Windows\PocketCM.exe" to :MSPOUTLOOK contacts.

Then if you want it back, you can change it back to \Windows\PocketCM.exe

SK tsync
Included in this rom is SK tsync, which will synchronize your phone to time servers. I've included in \Windows a special link called tsync silent.lnk . You can copy this link (with TotalCommander or use WinXplore) to your \Windows\Startup folder and it will allow your phone to sync its time after a reboot. Famewolf also wrote a Mortscript for easy install (since Mortscript is part of this rom). I've attached the script to this post. Just place it on your phone and run it, and it will copy this shortcut to your Startup folder for you.

MobileJustice v0.8
MobileJustice is an Anti-theft app that you can configure on your phone. Just go to Start > Programs > Accessories and click on the MJConfig icon (first time in you will get a message that there isn't a config file, just click ok and it will be created). To us this, check the Enabled box, then click Add on the Allowed line. You can then setup your SIM card as an authorized one, and add other SIM cards IMSI numbers if you use more than one. Next click on Add next to Report to: and setup an SMS number (wife, friend, colleague) where you want the text message to go to if an unauthorized SIM is put into your phone. You can add multiple SMS numbers if you want. At this point, your phone will now be setup so that if an unauthorized sim is put in it, then it will send an SMS (with no record of it being sent) to your Report To list on the next boot (you can test this by not setting up (or removing) the Allowed and then doing a soft reset).

For more advanced, you can turn on the Disp MsgBox at the top and then put in some text in the MsgBox text line. This will pop up a Message box on the screen of the phone after a boot, if an unknown sim is in the phone.

You can also enable RMon (bottom half of the screen), put in a pass phrase, and then turn on MsgBox (GPS and LocCall do not work on Wizards, and the other options haven't been implemented in this version). By doing this, you can now send an SMS to your phone in the following format:

+m passphrase message

Rmon will intercept the sms message (so it will not show up as a received message), and if the passphrase matches the one you put in the configuration, then it will pop up a message box on the phone with your message in it (so you can secretly send messages to the thief to possibly intimediate them (or whatever).

The project page for MobileJustice is located at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mjustice/

Reserved 4

I would like to thank the following in help (directly and indirectly) with XDA Mobile 6:
  • Faria for providing the initial ROM Kitchen that got me cooking
  • anichillus for the fantastic Hyper Core ROM Kitchen which was exclusively used in the production of this ROM
  • Dr Puttingham for the guides, information he has provided to all of us
  • Molski for having a nice tutorial on various cooking tools and providing easy access to info at http://www.molski.biz
  • mattk_r for inspiration and pushing the envelope and for the fantastic set of OEM packages
  • Famewolf for constantly pointing me to new apps, new versions, and posts about features like BlueTooth DUN to add into the rom. You could almost call this XM6r3FW ;)
  • Those that took the time to help beta test XM6 Release 3 (Rudi, Pablo, Moby, Jorge, JL, Tommy, Shane, Ben, and a few others I'm sure I left out (sorry)). We worked out a number of issues with a nice long beta test! I think all the beta testers (myself included) are sick of flashing, and I think I caused all of them at least one locked up phone after flashing... You want a cure for Flashing addiction? This beta test sure helped most of us... :D
  • Everyone that installed and gave feedback and support on the other XDA Mobile 6 threads
  • Everyone that I thanked in my other ROM releases! :)

My shots don't really show all that much but give you a general layout of how todayagenda looks..pbar....weatherpanel...the wizard retouched dialer with a custom skin...hope it's of use to someone....


The today screen shows from top to bottom Pbar (Task Manager), WeatherPanel using the Chameleon skin,
Windows Live Search,

The tray is part of Batterystatus. The dialer is the wizard retouched dialer with a custom skin called "Black Raindrops". The music player is Mortplayer using the Qvista skin.

The link to dialer skins is in mfrazzz's first posts.
