October 3rd, 2010:
Version 7.0 Changes from 6.0:

-Switched to Office Mobile 2010
-Added Titanium theme "Windows Mobile 7" by Dan.
++++This removes "Phone / Voicemail / Text Messages" items from the Titanium Home Screen - replaced with Notifications.
++++To make a phone call, you can choose Phone from the Start Menu or the Notifications Pane, or press the green hardware button on the phone itself.
-Removed Titanium Customizer
-Added CHome Editor
-Added Titanium plugins (these can be individually disabled using CHome Editor):
++++Comm Manager
++++Titanium Weather (was added / removed in the past, but if you don't want it you can Disable it!)
++++Notifications (missed call, voice mail, sms, email) - this replaces the TEXT, PHONE, and VOICEMAIL items in this theme. Select any of these to compose new text, make a call, etc...
++++Facebook / Facebook IM
++++Favorite People contact shortcuts (customizable / can rename appearance on Titanium)
++++Application Shortcuts (note some applications shown by default were not included and may be added to a future build)
++++Office Mobile 2010 Shortcuts (note: Office Communicator not included)
-Added HTC Audio Manager
-Added MortScript
-Added IETools
-Added SQLCE3.0
-Added System files needed for Voice Command (some apps can now take advantage of Voice Commands).
-Switched to more plugin-compatible version of HTC Jade Album
-"Conneting" Data notification disabled by defalut.
-Added MINLA 2D interface: note: I know practically nothing about Manila - I got it to work, my city was already in the weather databse, I don't know how to add cities, etc... don't ask me, I can't help you! For help, visit:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=554857
++++To enable Manila2D, Click Start > Settings > Home Screen, move right to ITEMS, and Select TouchFLO (note, the TouchFlo cube is NOT included with this build).

-Added many more programs to NVogue Care Pack:
++++Swype for Vogue (install 1st)
++++Swype for Vogue QVGA Theme (install 2nd) - must be installed.
++++Microsoft MyPhone latest
++++Opera Mobile (small, very fast, but sends your info to Opera proxy for processing) latest
++++Opera Mini (Forces your phone to do the work that Opera Mini's proxy would do, but protects your privacy) latest
++++Google Maps latest

Most impressive about NuVogue 7.0? Even with all of these new features (Titanium Plugins, Manila2D, etc...) the phone still boots EXTREMELY qickly. The "First Boot after flash" will take a little longer, but once everything is properly installed and you're using the phone day-to-day, NuVogue 7.0 is still extremely fast and stable!

As with 6.0 - to free up space on your device, you can delete the entire folder for the NuVogue Care Pack - it will warn you that these are system files, but will cause no problems if deleted.

September 19th, 2010:
Version 6.0 Changes from 5.0:

-Back to Glossy 1 column 6-Button COMM Manager from earliest builds of NuVogue.
-Added latest Facebook client.
-Added Pocket Uno to Games.
-Added HTC Performance (Start\Settings\System\Performance) supposedly compatible with HTC Vogue.
++Allows changes CPU clock speed from 400Mhz-constant to 300-520Mhz-dynamic (not responsible for any damage that may result from use). Can also overclock to 624 Mhz, but I do not suggest this.
-INTRODUCING THE NuVogue Care Pack!!!: CAB files that cause problems or when "pre-installed" or that some users may have no need for - but saved in the phone's "NuVogue Care Pack" directory so you can install them with no need to download! PLEASE feel free to suggest future additions to the Care Pack! This is to save you time with repeated downloads from your phone!
+++HTC Touc Input CAB - EZ Input SIP (better keyboard than the one cooked in to the build).
+++Windows Live Client for Windows Mobile (latest version).
+++Windows Mobile Marketplace Bootstrap (installs the small file which will donwnload the latest Windows Mobile Marketplace).
++++WinMoSquare - latest beta version of Touchality's Foursquare client for Windows Mobile.

NOTE: Once you have the CABs installed or if don't want to install ANY of these, you can simply delete the entire folder from the root of the phone. It will warn you that these are considered "system files" but it will cause no problems, stability issues, or errors when starting the phone. You are free to delete the folder to free up space on your phone!

---FYI from 5.0 - with SmartDialer added, it will auto-complete email addresses in the default or Windows Live for Windows Mobile Phone E-Mail clients.



________________________

September 8th, 2010:
Version 5.0 Changes:
-Included EZInput SIP. THANKS LMILLER!!! (note, I still recommend the slightly updated version from the URL above)
-Added SmartDialer
-Back to 6-Button COMM Manager from Diamond (no wifi in the device, no need for 10-button). (this will change probably back to the one from 1.0-3.0 in a future build).
-Removed HTC GPS Routing Tool

I have been experimenting with adding BatteryStatus / HomeScreen Plus Plus, but since I use Titanium and not Manila it doesn't seem to work too well - and have no ability to overclock (which is why I wanted the software in the first place). I have removed it from 5.0 but am considering it for future builds.


________________________

August 12th, 2010:
0.1 "Bare" ROM: As requested, NuVogue version 0.1 BARE: Added the SMS Timestamp Fix, Calculator, Long Press End Key, Camera, and Album 2.0. I consider these essentials. If anyone would like a truly naked build of 28014, let me know.


August 12th, 2010: Version 4.0 changes:
-Captain Shared Modules patches.
-10-Button COMM Manager.
-Additional Ringtons, Themes, and Sounds.
-HTC Album 2.0 - slighty different from the 2.5 album in NuVogue 3.0.
-HTC GPS Tool to check GPS Status.
-Switched back to MSN Widgets for Weather, Money, and Live search - removed Titan Weather.
-Removed Ubuntu Theme from Titan Interface.


I have no pictures at this time, can get screenshots if you'd like.
________________________

Version 3.0 changes:
I called this 3.0 because I feel the changes significant enough, though not numerous.
-New Dialer: Blue Frog Big Button dialer - very similar to the default for the Touch, but easier to see.
-New game: Dope Wars.


NuVogue301.png

________________________

July 7th, 2010: Version 2.0 changes:
-New Titanium Weather Plugin added.
-New Titanium Theme "Ubuntu" layered on top of the HTC Black Theme.
-New Dialer: "iPhone Minimal Dialer" - iPhone style, should fix number alignment issue from the previous dialer. Note that this does cover up the call history screen (screen shots below), feedback welcome!
-New HTC Calculator replacing the Windows Mobile Default calc.
-Fixed Problem with task manager overlapping with the clock.
-Removed WM6.5 Widgets, now that weather is part of the Titanium theme.

Currently, all other features are the same as NuVogue 1.0, and is still based on 28014 for enhanced core stability.

June 27th, 2010, NuVogue 1.0

This ROM is speedy, has the purportedly revised version of Internet Explorer, but most importantly is EXTREMELY stable. Reboots seem optional, and I haven't had a single freeze with this build - with a previous ROM I was using, it would seem stable until I used Task Manager to endtask a few things - that would cause it to freeze. I haven't been able to make this freeze yet!

NuVogue1.0
WM Build 28014
Built with PPCk-BuildOS.

Special thanks to JustPCTech for his support and the contribution of the SMS 2016 Timestamp fix.
Also, thanks to PPCKitchen.org user Mattsm for support and advice!


To install, follow the instructions in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=592964

This ROM is CARRIER GENERIC, so don't forget to install your carrier CAB or else data won't work. ( Downloads: http://winbreak.com/winmo/voguegoodies/ ).

Includes SMS 2016 Timestamp Fix

Does NOT include Manila, if you wish to install it, you can choose your favorite flavor. Rumor is the one at the following URL is good:
http://www.bytetips.com/manila-3d-for-qvga-device/

I cannot confirm the reliability of the above linked program since I don't use Manila (thus the reason I have not included it with my build). The rest of the build is as follows.

Default Vogue 8-Button Comm Manager
Total Commander File Manager for Registry Editing
HTC Vogue Camera / HTC Album 2.5
.NET CF 3.5
Dialer from HTC Diamond
Default HTC Touch Keyboard, but if you install your own, I have included SIP Changer.
HTC Task Manager 2.1 & XButton
Titanium Customizer
Windows 6.5 Widgets (Weather, MSN Money, Live Search)
Long End Keypress - Hold END to Toggle things like Airplane Mode, to Lock The Phone, etc...).
Adobe PDF
Office Mobile / OneNote Mobile (I chose this older version intentionally because if you have purchased Office Mobile 2010 from the Mobile Marketplace, it will do an in-place upgrade with no errors).
Games (just because): Kevtris, Pocket Sand, Pocket Snake, Frogger, Bubblebreaker & Solitaire.

Thanks!

Well, in my head, the build number was higher, so I figured it was newer. It wasn't until after I was tinkering with different builds that I learned a little bit more of how the numbering system worked.

Still, the more I tinkered with different build numbers, flashing some basically "naked" ROMs on to my phone, just to play with them for a day at a time or so, the more I really started to like this one.

Simply put, STABILITY was my biggest issue, and this build seems to have it! :)

I just hope others tinker with it for a little while, I don't expect to be the new chef around here, 1.0 might be my only release! But I thought I'd toss it out there to see if anyone was interested.

Okay Start

This is a nice start. However, some annoyances:

Did you notice the quick menu where the clock is? It isn't accessible.
The dialer is not aligned when I type in some numbers.

Have you've tried other HTC Applications?
HTC Calculator, HTC Album has better scrolling by the way. Perhaps you would love that, etc.

I hope you have not given up. Are you going to progress on this build?

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it! Yeah, I noticed a few problems with the dialer as I was using it - unfortunate, because it's my favorite for ease of 'redialing' someone after a disconnect. Which happens between my girlfriend and I alot! ;)

Also, with the quick menu, I noticed the problem (as seen in the first screenshot) - but don't know how to go about fixing it, yet. I'll look in to alternate albums and the like, and adding calculator.

I did want to update the thread and say that yesterday was my first reboot in 8 days!

Prowess,

Thanks again for the feedback - I have released a version 2.0 if you're intersted in checking it out. I kept the album that I have because I actually really like it. ;) But other than that, I took quite a few suggestions that you made, you can see the change log for 2.0 above.

Dial-bug

Very clean.

What I've done is I went to dial in my voice-mail. So I pressed the send key (green button) to open dial-pad. Pressed and hold 1 to get to voice-mail. It says to enter password, but I couldn't hear it well so I went to switch off dial-pad to get to speakers and turned them on. But I wasn't able to get there because twice, I've tried and froze, only the woman kept on saying 'please enter password' until it hung up. Tried getting back but the only option was the reset bottom button.

I've tried too many ROMS and was thinking that one day I will take in the knowledge to create one myself. Thanks for the inspiration,

Hey, Prowess! You're absolutely right, no ROM may ever be exactly what you're looking for until you decide to do your own. I look forward to trying to what you'll be releasing! :)

What's interesting was I tried to mimmick your problem - I could switch the speakerphone off and on a few times on different phone calls. However, one time, I was able to freeze up the phone when I tried to hide the dial pad, but I have succesfully hidden it multiple times to use the swap or speakerphone or other buttons (as seen in the screenshot above). Very strange.

Overall, the fastest way to switch the speaker off and on is to click the menu icon at the bottom right of the screen (to the left of the "X") then press up a few times to turn speakerphone on.

I'll keep tinkering to see what happens with this problem... I certainly haven't settled on a particular dialer. ;) I appreciate the feedback!

Nice, and very fast boot. Some issues I like addressed next go is the dialer. love the big dial buttons. But it over laps your contacts that it tries to match the number with. And hard to see the number you are dialing in the top right hand corner. Especially at night. because it's dark blue. I would suggest white. But my biggest thing is the Keyboard. Would love to see a nicer one besides the defaults But besides that. A great fast bootable ROM. Thanks for the hard work man

Been trying to find out what keyboard was used in the Baroqi44's release. I'd LOVE to add that keyboard, but have no idea what it was. Any keyboard suggestions? :)

I've been tinkering with other dialers, but haven't found a good 'different' one - considering going back to the default Vogue dialer.

Currently I'm running Android and beta testing some software for a Germany company, so I have sort of put this project on a short hiatus, but I will be back to it soon.

Thanks for your feedback, ern88, and I'm glad you enjoy the boot speed! Thanks hope you enjoy the stability, too!

Hey NuAngel,

I haven't had any stability issues to report. Runs great. I am just impressed how fast it boots from start up. Hopefully future builders will take some pointers on what you have done in the aspects. ABout the keyboard, too bad you couldn't use something modeled after an apple iphone keyboard. But anything besides stock would be great. Thanks again

Hello,

Just tried out the 3.0 ROM tonight, it looks pretty sharp. I have a few quick questions and comments.

  • Do Sprint customers need to install the mmssprint.cab Sprint MMS settings fix?
  • Is there a way to access the Block Recognizer input? (I was a Palm user for many years.)

Thanks for the feedback!

You should still use the mmssprint.cab file (If you need it, I have it hosted on my web page) for Sprint. If you don't install it, the only difference I've noticed, so far, is that when you get an SMS message, it will just be some garbled text with a link you can click in to take you the the sprint page - instead of "click to view" showing up as it does when you have the patch installed. Either way, you can still click the link and go to the web address, so I actually don't even bother installing it half of the time, on my own phone.

As far as block recognizer, it was removed from HTC products in Windows Mobile 6.5, from everything I've read. I don't know how to get it back, but after reading a large chunk of another thread, I found this post, where the user offers links to a couple of 3rd party programs that may work for you, and this post which has the WM6.1 "Block recog.cab" file which may or may not work for Touch 6.5 ROMs. Sorry I can't be of more help with that! I'll try to see if I can add it to any future releases, if I get another working phone in the near future.

Installed this ROM, and it is very stable. It doesn't freeze up as often as other ROMS.

My only preferences, and perhaps you can help with, would be
-to revert back to the stock taskbar on the top, which allowed easy switching of programs
-be able to customize where camera photos are stored, etc. (perhaps it has this function, but I am unable to find it)

The biggest issue (and only one really, congrats!) is that I am having issues with the swype keyboard on your ROM. I've tested it with others, but Nuvogue seems very delayed and gives double suggestions (above the typing area, and also within a box). I'm not sure if this is an issue with the keyboard or the ROM, but it's the only thing that is preventing me from making this my permanent ROM.

btw, I really appreciate the late nights put into making these ROMs, and thank you for making such a stable one.

I'll try cooking Swype directly in a future build to see if it solves your problem. I, myself, prefer the EZKeyboard I point to in the original post - it's my favorite for Windows Mobile.

I sincerely appreciate your feedback, I'm doing a LOT of work to make 4.0 a big release, so I really hope it has everything you like and then some! :) As always, my biggest personal goal is increased stability, above all features. I hate rebooting my phone: you should, too! Once 4.0 is released, I look forward to your feedback about how Swype works for you, as well.

Just wanted to update everyone on the bad news that makes 4.0 a bit more lack luster than I really wanted.

First, I wanted to make a different build of WM6.1 style with the Start Menu on the TOP of the screen - but I can't get a stable enough build for all the things I want to do, and since Stability is my primary objective, it was sad.

Second, I am unable to cook in ANY new keyboards (SIPs), so I cannot add EZInput or Swype - and my research has shown that Swype is not very compatible with this particular build of Windows Mobile, very sorry!

Tip: for easy task switching, go to SETTINGS, then PERSONAL, then BUTTONS and assign the Camera Button to launch Task Manager instead of the camera... how often do you use camera that it's not just easier to go into the Start Menu, when you could make that button your Task Manager shortcut! Very easy!

    go to system -->Setting-->Home-->and check TouchFlo

    How can i install the htc usb 2 pc,with disk drive, internet sharing and active synch options?

    Also, has anyone tried that weather fix cab for the old sense UI that made the weather update on the homescreen?

    This feature is working in XevRev, although the drive option doesn't appear to be functional (yet). Sometimes with XevRev, you must first run USB to PC, then it will begin autobooting (I must see if I can figure out the registry settings that are being added). XevRev is entering beta release. I've sent NuAngel some roms to test. XevRev will be available in two different builds: 28014 and 23889. Both builds have been rock stable in by testing.

    Once I get my post count up, I will be starting my own thread.

    Building is back on track, I recently got a Touch Pro2 and can afford to flash the Vogue a ton. lol I will eventually build a rom for TP2, but that's WAYYY down the road.

    XevRev will be carrier specific. I hate carrier generic and installing carrier cabs, so its just easier to build them. For beta I have built Sprint, Verizon, and Telus. If anyone is interested in beta testing XevRev, just post here with your carrier if its not any of the above three, and I will build/upload both flavors for that carrier.

    Sorry

    Due to something happening with my hosting account, I had to not only temporarily suspend hosting, but in the end the entire domain ended up being purged and everything that was hosted lost.

    I pay for about 300GB of bandwidth every month, when suddenly, somehow, I used over 450GB in 3 days - this hasn't happened in the nearly 7 years I've had that website, even when NuVogue was being regularly downloaded - the logging was broken so I was unable to tell WHAT was using the bandwidth, and in an attempt to save myself from getting a massive bill from my hosting provider and using up hundreds of more gigabytes, I had to halt http://WinBreak.com traffic - which lead to more and more problems, resulting in a total loss.

    I apologize for the few souls out there still looking to try this ROM, or even some of the other "Goodies" I was hosting (Carrier CABs, etc...).

    I would like to let it be known that I wholly support the work done by TheXev and encourage others to check out his XevRev releases.

    Thanks for the support you have all shown me, my sincerest apologies for these recent developments.

    You got hack'd!. Your ROM was 1 of many many many I tried, but I stuck with it awhile. It remains in my mind as having been high quality and instrumental toward learning how to cook my own, which I'm still using today. Hats off to you, NuAngel.
