Chrisd1a1 Sense

SORRY FOLKS BUT AS MY DIAMOND HAS DIED AND I'M UPGRADING SHORTLY I'LL BE UNABLE TO CONTINUE TO DEVELOP THIS ROM. MORE INFO: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=6115263&postcount=205

Thanks to the following

Evirus – for the visual Kitchen
l3v5y – for the Kitchen and base rom (and for help and advice.)
the_scotsman – for giving me the bug (lol) and for help and advice
Badwolve1 – for help and advice
Amarullz – for themes, and all the hard work modding Sense and loads of other Apps so we can use them.
awran5 – for kitchen help and packages

The point of the forums is to help others and share our work. The above are positive examples to all.


POINTS TO NOTE!!!!

This is a test rom using 6.5.X so I can see how well Sense actually runs and how much free RAM I can get.

I’ll try to respond to posts as soon as I can but with working full time and having 5 kids, my ‘XDA TIME’ is a little limited.

I’ll apologise now for slow responses and I promise I’ll get back to everyone as soon as I can

I’m not aiming to release new builds every day; I’ll try to bug fix in batches.

I’ve put this together for my personal use so I’ve removed just about everything from the rom.

Please don’t ask me to ‘add this’ or ‘add that’. Everything people are likely to want is available in cab form with a bit of looking.


I STRONGLY ADVISE MITTY AND HARD RESET WHEN FLASHING

i've done some work on stablising the rom, sense is a lot more stable in my opinion, and also a lot smoother. there is still the issue of sense not starting without shutting it down and soft reset but this has been running for 5 days without a sense crash or out of memory warning now:)

bugs and known issues

2012 RC3 and RC3 lite

cab attached to fix the Facebook online album issue. this is the only bug.

2012 B1

PLEASE NOTE SOME PEOPLE ARE HAVING AN ISSUE WITH THE INITIAL SETUP OF THIS ROM. PLEASE SKIP THE SETUP OPTIONS WHERE THE ROM ASKS YOU TO SET DATE AND TIME / PIN. SET THEM ONCE THE ROM HAS FINISHED SECOND BOOT.

EMAIL ISSUE FIX

Go the following Key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Inbox\Templates\IPM\Note]
Change the following value from:
"Read"="\\Windows\\HTC_read_note.htm"
TO:
"Read"="\\Windows\\read_note.htm"

change Compose to:

"Compose" = \\Windows\compose_note.htm"


Internet sharing link in Start Menu not working (removed the software but the link won't go!!)

Sounds & Display issue in manila settings

problem can be fixed... do this:

1. Go to the settings tab in Sense, and press the "Menu" button at bottom right of screen, then choose "All settings" (this opens the Windows Mobile 6.5 Settings folder)

2. Open the Sounds & Notifications control panel, switch to the "Notifications" tab, and hit "OK".

Now you'll find the Sounds & Display option in Sense works fine.

sense sometimes does not boot on soft reset. go to settings, disable sensethen soft reset and re-enable sense.

sms does not work via sense. use all messages to use the windows sms.

reigional settings messed up (will look at this asap)

internet time update through sense not working. (this is not a biggie to me as the time updates mannually and via device centre

connection setup cab attached if people need it.

Alternate HTC Album (a lot less RAM but no Facebook)

This ROM looks really nice, and if I was going to cook something I'd have also tried l3v5y's base ROM and Manila 2.5.

Flashed and will try it over the next few days.

Two little (minor) problems:

- Found it hard to set the date to 24 January 2010. It wouldn't "stick" the first few times I tried. Eventually it "stuck" when I first changed it to 23 January 2010, and then moved forward one day
- The connection wizard thing assumed I'm on T-Mobile (not, on Virgin Mobile), but since I think they use the same network, its probably not an issue - but other ROMs have offered me the choice of Virgin Mobile.

Other than that, it looks beautiful, and its all working OK, and I've synced with my Exchange Server, Facebook etc.

Thanks!

no probs, thanks for the feedback. i've never had that issue cos the date and time syncs through device centre on my pc.. have you tried that?

i'm uploading a slightly ammended version that gives more free ram. the look and feel is the same but it might not be to everyones taste.

No settings

Has anyone noticed that the settings icon doesn't come up in the start menu and therefore you can't change the settings? This is a seroius problem and needs to be fixed!

fix added to post 1. (with thanks to Badwolve1) it's an issue with the build. one thing though, with sense enabled it will take you to the sense settings page. if its disabled to windows settings.

you can access the windows settings through sense via Menu - All Settings

i'm averaging the 26 without issue. but remember your applications don't close with the 'X' so you will need to shut them down mannually using the task manager or the Ram will drop..

to give you an idea went out the other day for a drive about 60 mins of tomtom use plus music, didn't use all the ram.

the fix for the settings button is attached to the second post and discussed in post 9

re the sounds

if you go to the settings tab on manilla, menu> all settings go to sounds and notifications through the windows menu this fixes the bug for future use through the manila settings

I'm in favour of this. Getting Windows Mobile 6.5 and Manila 2.5 to work together on our Diamonds is always going to be about compromise. I'd rather lose a few seldom used features in order to gain more RAM.

XT9 predictive text

Hi,

This is a fantastic ROM. just enough RAM free to make it quite usable.

Maybe add something like Ramsweeper as a 1 click option to close all those programs we forget to exit properly...

I'm having problems with the XT9 predictive text. It just doesn't seem to work at all - as if there's a crossed mapping somewhere in the works. Anyone else see this? Hit a and A pops up above, but in the predictive area it's z, q comes up as a, t - k, s - c. other letters such as all of the bottom row don't bring up anything.

Any ideas?

Cheers again for the great ROM.

    Chris,

    Some feedback on the RC3 Sense 2.5 build.

    I think it runs very well. Fast enough and with good memory to run some programs.

    Found 3 issues with this build (some already known..)
    1. No Connection Setup wizzard, this causes me te have to configure my KPN NL settings for GPRS/UMTS manually.. Is this by design?
    2. SMS seems to be broken. I do receive messages but I think you removed somthing to much here (black screen on sms tab of contact and send button on sms sense page does nothing). SMS number is configured correctly..
    3. Sense 2.5 does not always want to start correctly. Manual removal and hard reset required (you explained this before..)..

    Thanx for the great work.. This is close supurb :)

    link for connection setup added to second post

    Welcome chef, I'll try your ROM this week.
