This is a WM6.5.1 ROM, based on the latest WM6.5.1 OEM ROM and 23037 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.

Would love this ROM with:

Manilla 2.6
Opera Latest Non 9.7 version
Default HTC apps that ship with the Rhodium - That's it!
And all default WM Apps including RDP Client, Office Mobile, OneNote,

Don't really have much on the suggestion side of things, I actually prefer the standard 6.5 interface over the manila. So maybe an option without manila would be good? Default apps only would be good too :).

Anywho, I'm very interested in helping out. I've been lurking these forums for a long time now, time to help a bit.

Let me know if you need any testing done! I am running this build on my fuze (cooked it myself) and I love it! Rhodium is much harder to cook for though, still working on my kitchen! LOL:)

Hi Ace,

Didn't know that - what features or programs are incompatible with build 23022 upwards?
Idk, I've just been following the thread for the new 6.5 leaks. There's LOTS of problems that they have to iron out.

Manila doesn't work...Many programs have been reported to not work.

This is all due to the new bars that they made. The bottom bar is larger, which will overlap with programs, and causes problems.

But make this ROM, because it'll be fun to PLAY with. It won't be for primetime use, exactly. But it'll be interesting to see what MS is working on.

oh, I see!

So those new bars with the new icons break existing programs...

Thanks for the heads up!

Still want to have a play though - curiosity and all!

Everyone's "stuck" on 23016 because it's STABLE.

These new builds won't even work with many programs, so yea.
All programs "work" you just have scroll bars at the side. Hopefully, the change in the top bar will make the screen area available for applications about the same as before.

Everyone stuck on 23016 because it's the latest without the newest UI changes.
