Welcome to my personal ROM. This is my ROM for my personal device, I have included Apps and other stuff that I use in this ROM. It is also customized to my personal liking so it may not be in everyones flavour. Some things may not work simply because I don't use them (i.e Dialer has Video Call but I haven't tested it since I don't use it, the same goes for Wi-Fi)


Let me start by giving you an idea as to what my goals were with this ROM:

  • Stablity
  • Fast & Fluid
  • Everything working 100%

I would like to think that I have achived my goals in the current release of AthenaROM HTC Sense. Feel free to post your feedback and bug reports.


About this ROM:

I have been testing this ROM over the past couple of weeks fixing bugs as they popped up, the end result is a 100% bugfree HTC Sense ROM.
Because of the fact that our Diamonds were designed to run on WM 6.1, having WM 6.5 & HTC Sense on a Diamond will slow it down and on occasions you may run out of RAM and get a "Low Memory" warning.

GPS software will not work with HTC Sense enabled (I have found however that TomTom runs on my device with Sense enabled), there just isn't enough memory. The same goes for sending MMS messages, you will most probably get "Low Memory" warnings.

These issues are not bugs or problems relating to the ROM itself, but the fact that our Diamonds doesn't have enough RAM to run the software properly.


Installing this ROM:

  • My preferred method of installation is via Internal Storage, therefor I recommend doing it that way.
  • You will need HardSPL (I use 1.93) on your Diamond to install this ROM.
  • This ROM is ONLY for GSM Diamonds.
  • I recommend using MTTY if you experience any random Soft/Hard Resets or Phone Freezing. See this thread for details how to flash using MTTY and to download MTTY
  • Please read the FAQ's in the 3rd Post before posting questions. You will find most of the previously asked Questions and Answers there.

If you are for whatever reason not happy with this ROM or think that it sucks, please remember that I do not ask for DONATIONS nor will I ever ask for DONATIONS. I offer this ROM totally free to the XDA Community. This ROM is my way of saying thanks to the XDA Community.

FAQ's

Q: To use Background on all Tabs and disable the weather animation:

A: Go to Menu > Home Wallpaper > Animated Wallpaper and choose a Wallpaper from one of your Albums.


Q: I cannot scroll to the top in the Menu Enhancement

A: Go to: HKLM/Software /HTCHTCMenus/ Change "PortraitMaxItemCount" to 7 (it's the VGA value) + Soft reset. (This issue will be fixed with the next release)


Q: The ROM is slow and sluggish, what can I do?

A: You can install the Neos2007 Driver Pack (cooked into ROM from version 3 onwards), that should speed things up a bit. Also what works for me is to use SKTools to Optimize phone for Performance and running CleanRAM at Level 3 every 3 Hours. - DOWNLOAD


Q:
Hello,

Newbie Question :p

What exactly does GSM Diamond mean and how do I know if my Htc diamond is GSM? Just trying to make things clear before flashing :)

A: A GSM Diamond has a SIM Card as apposed to a CDMDA Diamond that doesn't use a SIM card.


Q:
your software looks good but it sucks it **** up my phone

A: Does anyone even bother to read the first post thoroughly?


Q:
hi,

I have a 2g diam100 from india and when I installed your rom, I am unable to get any network. Kindly provide some solution for this.

A:
I have resolved the issue that I had by selecting GSM as my base band. This helped me in resolving my issue.


Q:
please define the address of site for download
thx

A: Seriously how hard can it be, you click where it says DOWNLOAD.


Q:
very nice rom but some heavy. need some improvement
best regards

A: I use SKTools to optomize the ROM for Performance. It's definately more responsive.


Q:
Anyone know why i might sense 2.5 might not be running for me on this ROM? tried a couple of hard resets but all i get is what looks like a fairly standard version of w6.5 running.. all the apps etc are there that should be so its the right ROM... can think of anything obvious that i am missing?
TIA

A: As per the Changelog HTC Sense is not enabled by default. To enable it go to Settings / Today / Select the "Items" Tab / Tick "HTC Sense" / Press "OK" on the Top-Righthand corner of your screen.

I have no plans to make one at this stage, but maybe I will give it a try in the near future.

Noted - Will fix/update in next release.

How can I change XT9 (german lanquage?)

This is a WWE ROM.

Hi again I just wanted to know if u optimized the graphics on this ROM. It might help a lot in speeding it up.

Thanks

No I haven't optimized the graphics, but the ROM is quite fast.
