This is a WM6.5.1 ROM, based on the 2.08 OEM ROM and 23047 XIP/SYS from Da_G.

All it has got is the bare minimum OEMDrivers, plus a fully featured SYS (some of the SYS applications have been tweaked: removed extra screen layouts for LockScreen, removed SampleMusic etc, UPXed a few things).

The XIP has been tweaked quite heavily to get the best performance, and you should be able to add whatever you like to this ROM and it should remain stable.

Try it and see (and install whatever keyboard you feel like using).

This will probably act as the basis for some "full" ROMs afterwards.

OLD:

Based on my Diamond/Rhodium 23034 ROM (which is being updated to 23037 now) I'm proud to present WM6.5.1 for Topaz owners!

It's a clean/light ROM with the focus on speed (at least until HTC makes their applications work with the new layout!)

So, the download links:
TOPAZ
RUU - These are simply RUUs, no ROMs
http://rapidshare.com/files/272292807/l3v5yROMWrapper_Topaz.exe
http://gudd.no:81/l3v5y/l3v5yROMWrapper_Topaz.exe

ROM (NBH) - NBH only part of ROM
http://gudd.no:81/l3v5y/ruu_signed_TOPAZ_09082702.7z - fixed (hopefully)
http://rapidshare.com/files/272350344/ruu_signed_TOPAZ_09082702.7z - RS Mirror


ROM (EXE) - EXE containing the NBH and an RUU
http://gudd.no:81/l3v5y/RUU_Topaz_l3v5y_09082702_L_WWE_5.2.23037.5.3.0_2.08.exe

(May be unstable, this is only a TEST ROM)

Thanks to flippy for ROM hosting!

New ROM up now! :)

After a quick test I noticed two things:

1. The magnifying effect is on and I'm unable to find a place where to turn it off. This is really annoying!

2. After starting Windows Live and trying to set account details, keyboard went missing and the program failed shutting it down after clicking the screen where keyboard was supposed to be.

3. Once I was unable to start File Explorer from Start menu, restarting the device helped on this matter.

So far then, stabilty isn't great. I could probably fix issues by removing the HTC IME, though then you're left with WMs crappy one....

New ROMs + kitchen now in the first post!

I'm going away for a few days tomorrow, so won't be doing much active support... If something is urgent, email me (use the link in my profile).

I think your 09082804 is very speedy and light. Thank you for giving us new works. By comparing other newer ROMS, this is far better than them.

Would it be possible for you to include teater, msn weather and money? Or, can you provide them as additional cabs?

Also Windows Media Player doesn't have enough codecs. Can you provide a link to download necessary codecs?

One bug: camera.exe doesn't work because of either no sign or missed component.

Somewhere in the deep South. Of Holland...
Fasssssssssssssssssssssst

This is the fastest ROM I ever benchmarked. In fact: the first ROM above the 2000 points in my benchmark totals. And it's WM6.5!!!

There are a few remarks though:
- it's a very very light ROM, virtually no applications, no Manila (the latter is just fine for me, I use PointUI)
- the magnifiing thing is very annoying, almost unusable
- in some applications (like Total Commander) there's no OK/Close button anymore
- camera is not working.

But still: very very fast, a new record
Congratz l3v5y!!!

I can try and make up some cabs from the OEM packs... I removed that stuff cause it's extra stuff that may not be needed by most.
Also Windows Media Player doesn't have enough codecs. Can you provide a link to download necessary codecs?

Those two come from my idiocy, I forgot to include two packages (mHubVO and DirectShow) that include all the codecs for media player and Camera. I'll upload a fixed ROM and those packages for use with the kitchen.

Are you sure that screen shots in post#1 is for build 23037?
Because I have not "AM or PM" in time&clock setting!
Well spotted, the screenshots are actually from my Diamond 23034 ROM... I haven't taken any screenshots of my 23037 ROM as it's cosmetically pretty similar.
