Released:


Windows Mobile "XDA Live v0.20"
for HTC Hermes


Now I present you with Version 0.20 of XDA Live!

Click here for Images of all the Themes I have collected. I've decided that instead of embedding them all, I will remove all but the default Crossbow Theme and add the Aero Theme. The Themes Page is being updated to allow you to click on the image to download the Theme.

I've received several requests for a PayPal link to donate in support of my efforts so I finally broke down and did it. If you go to the page with the themes (use the link above) at the bottom there is a PayPal Link. Thanks in advance to anyone who contributes and don't forget please send to XDA-Developers.com first.

WMXL v0.20 no longer uses the Vanilla Rom as it's base. I have been given the okay to release using my Original Base Rom.

I have integrated the following Applications:
  • ActiveSync Remote Display (CERDISP2)
  • Cubicle Chaos
  • HTweakC v2.1
  • MS Hearts
  • PHM Registry Editor
  • SMS Backup
  • StartClean
  • Task Manager v2.7
  • VJCandelaLite (Flashlight)
  • VJLumosIII (Bright Screen)
I have integrated the following Registry Fixes:
  • By default only the Date Plugin is enabled (and it is set to a single line).
  • The about screen shows " - XDA" after the OS Build Number.
  • Pressing & Holding the Comm Button toggles the between Vibrate & Normal.
  • Memory Cache & Storage Card Fixes are Applied.
  • Disabled the warning for Unsigned Applications (Application Lock).
  • Connection Band (E/G instead of U) displays correctly.
  • Added a Registry Key to support "internet-flatrate" by o2.
  • Connection Established Notification is off be default.
  • Keyboard Backlight Sensor is Disabled by default.
  • Disable Connection Sharing on Boot is off.
  • Internet Explore Auto Connect & Auto Dial are enabled by default.
Misc:
  • OS Version is edited to 5.1.195 (Build 17217.6.0.0) - XDA. This should allow Blackberry Connect (v2.1.2.31) & GoodLink to work with it.
  • WiFiInit is embedded.
  • SetHSPDA.exe is embedded.
  • I have created two new Roms v0.20.0 has no PDF Viewer embedded, v0.20.1 had Adobe Acrobat Reader 2.0 Embedded.
  • Note Recorder Press & Hold Button 5 is restored.
  • ATI Video Driver dll has been replaced with the one from AKU 3.3.
  • New XDA Windows Mobile Splash Screen (welcomehead.96.png).
  • Aero Today Theme is embedded.
  • WMXL Aero Today Theme is embedded.
  • WMXL Black Today Theme is embedded.
  • Windows Media Player 11 (Vista) Skin for WMP.
  • XDA Live Text is removed from the Today Screen.
  • I have added two "Classic RingTones, (OldPhone-US.wma and OldPhone-UK.wav) for those of us who want to get away from the music and chirping Ringers.
  • I have removed all carrier customizations, no need to soft reset to avoid customization!
Please let's keep this thread clean. This will aide in getting things fixed/added as quickly as possible.

If you just want to chatter go to one of the other threads for this Rom (see the end of the FAQ a few posts down). I will leave only one thread sticky but it will always contain links to all "Official" Threads for the Rom.

Official FAQ...

Q: How do I install it.
A: The self extracting archive will run the RUU after it extracts all files. I used The XDA RUU which was modified to push the Des Bootloader to your device. This Installer does not require your device to be SuperCID and should work with all bootloader versions. This installer only has a HTC Splash Screen and the OS, No radio or Ext_ROM.

Q: When I try to flash this Rom I get "Error 260: Update Error" why can't I flash this?
A: Remove you Security Pin,

Q: Will WMXL (Windows Mobile XDA Live) fix my corrupted radio bootloader or otherwise bricked Hermes?
A: If the other tools here can't do it then don't bet the farm on WMXL doing it. The Flashing tools are still the same, no magic pill here.

Q: If I upgrade to WMXL can I downgrade to an official Rom from my carrier?
A: Of course you can. WMXL DOES NOT HAVE A RADIO ROM so your Radio & Radio BootLoader are not touched. If you are not SuperCID you can use a Rom from your carrier to downgrade or you can use SSPL.

Q: What will happen to my Extended Rom when I flash WMXL?
A: Nothing. There is no Extended Rom included.

Q: Can you make it in German/French/Italian/Klingon for me?
A: The short answer is NO. I'm focusing on the OS, changing languages and localization are not something I want the delve into. Any replacement keyboard program for WM5 ought to work in WM6, best I can say is try what you're currently using the worst that will happen is you'll lose a few hours of time and maybe have to hard reset. For OS localization to a different language I'm sure some of the WM5 techniques will work but WM6 has different support for OS Language. Personally I'd either wait until MS releases Language Packs or someone takes an interest and figures this out so we can localize at hard reset.

Q: Kyphur you are such a Guru, how can I be like you?
A: Remember that my head is in the clouds on this one only because I'm standing on the shoulders' of giants. This project owes it's very existence to many other contributers here and they deserve as much if not more of the cudos than I do. The is a team effort, please support everyone who made this possible. (See my post here). I have been a member her for only 15 months give or take but I have spent more time reading than doing or posting.

Q: Can you release Cab file updates instead of cooking new Roms to flash?
A: I will do both. For example there were WMXL Update Cabs for Internet Calling and Windows Live! Mobile (for example). Some of these features will get embedded into the next release. I'm doing this to save you from having to flash you device as often as I am. Remember the Cab files will consume Program Memory whereas the new Rom releases will not.

Q: If you embed a program into the Rom how can I remove it (to save memory).
A: You can't remove files that are in the Rom. You can remove the Shortcuts to the programs. If you don't want the program simply ignore it and it will not harm you.

Q: Will you still release the scripts?
A: With the sudden release of several "Rom Kitchens" for the Hermes, my scripts are actually the hard way to do things. I will continue to use them as it allows me to easily switch from one Base ROm to another without much extra work. I would recommend that other wanting to cook Rom use one of the Rom Kitchens. Personally I will be experimenting with Olipro's as some of his earlier works have made WMXL possible. After WMXL v0.20 is released I will release a "Clean WM6 Rom" which will make a good base for other Rom Chefs. It will not include any of the additional progroms I embed but will have all of the core stuff (like Office Mobile).

Q: Will you still release a version based on the original Rom (from your unnamed source).
A: WMXL v0.20 uses my original Base Rom. Please note that the Vanilla Rom is derived from the same Base Rom as I have been using. The big difference is that I spent a lot of time sifting through the Rom files sorting what to delete whereas the Vanilla Rom, while good, has had a little too much trimmed off in some areas while junk has been left standing in others. Another difference is that I have changed a few files in WMXL v0.20 so that it can support Cingular's PTT.

Q: Why do my recent programs keep disappearing on every reset?
A: That is StartClean. If you don't want this then simply delete the shortcut from your Startup Folder.

Q: I have more questions...
A: This Thread is for misc duscussions.

Credits...

This Rom really is a group effort.
  • Without pof & team unlocking I never would have even gone looking for the base Rom.
  • aChef by aklok_hk is doing the heavy lifting.
  • Sleuth255, ShogunMark, Faria ViJay555, Bepe, Maimach have all been instrumental either directly or indirectly in this project.
  • Des and the SSPL was another step that got me to this point.
  • Olipro's RUU Workshop was used to make the installer package.
  • Of course there are all of the guys who have been doing this before I bought my first PPC Phone, they blazed the trail I simply walk behind them.
  • baudy2 for the OS version edit, wpbear for the Stand-alone Cyberon Voice Dialer CAB, coeptum for the regedit to fix the E/G indicator, schriss for pointing out that WM6 used an older Video Driver, shafez for providing the MSN Files.
  • Of course there is my team of beta testers.
  • Finally, I can't forget my unnamed source. They took a big change passing this along to me. Even though this relase is built on the Vanilla Rom, without that trust I wouldn't have been able to spend that previous week cooking with a WM6 Rom Image.
If I missed someone I apologize, just PM me and I'll update the list.

Thanks Kyphur and the TEAM for this great release,

As I asked before, Is there a need for a direct mirror link?

So far so good, except GPRS....
Breaks every 3-4 min and can reconnect only after soft reset.

Thanks a lot again.

Any mirrors are welcome...

I've have GPRS connected since my last flash (about 90 minutes) without dropping the connection. I use HTweakC to Enable CPRS/G3 Auto Attach" and "Set Connection AlwaysOn".

Are you installing any Cingular Cabs?

Are you enabling HSDPA?

BBConnect

Thanks also for this release guys.

Installed this looking forward to the BBConnect fix, but hitting an issue. I run v 2.1.2.52 and whilst I can install and run the software, it isn't pulling down email. I notice that the wireless synch box is never ticked when installed, yet despite clicking this - and attempting to force a synch it doesn't work.

Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance....

Paul

Please be more specific, are you receiving an error? Explain exactly the behavior you are observing.

Also, everyone please post which point version your are running (.0 = no PDF, .1= Adobe Acrobat PDF) when reporting an issue.
