Introduction:
After playing with my Touch Pro2 for a while I decided to cook my own ROM.

My ROM is created with the following goals:
  • Speed !!!
  • Latest and greatest OS (WM 6.5.5 build 23518)
  • Stable but latest Manila 2.1 (with Weather)
  • Office 2010
  • UC v2.0 compatible (click here for more info)

Today's release contains the latest available packages and a lot of bugs fixed compared to the previous 0.1 beta release.
This release should be really stable and almost ready for 1.0 Release. Please let me know any issues with it.

This is the newest Windows Mobile version out there!

Screenshots:



Screenshots will be updated soon, still looks fairly similar though :)

List of packages:
  • Latest drivers from the new official HTC WM6.5 ROM
  • OS: Latest and greatest WM 6.5.5 build 23518
  • Office 2010
  • Opera Mobile 9.5 and Opera Mobile 10 Beta 2
  • Power 3.4.0.3
  • 1% Battery fix
  • ARCSoft messenger (not HTC messaging client) so faster!
  • My own speed enhancing registry tweaks
  • A Stopwatch!! (still can't believe there is none by default)

Removed packages:

  • Microsoft Tag
  • Remote Desktop

Bluetooth from comm manager does not function correctly
Windows big icon task bar does not work
On homepage, the taskmanager icon is displayed over the top clock on the top right
When clicking on the task manager icon, it displays the open programs - when clicking on it again, it closes the display, waits 2 seconds, then re-opens the list
The Location Settings does not display correctly when opened from the weather tab - works ok from the settings screen
Weather animation is not working - this is not the latest manila 2.1W version
The countries in the location search in time and weather show in french,not english
Right soft key on Home Page is "Power Off" - why!? I could just long press the power button for this!
All the ringtones are included and could be removed to save space

Great feedback. This is what I was looking for.
I'll take a look at each of them and try to fix them asap.

"Message Sent" is not disabled for SMS
The "Send" icon is missing from SMS

Message sent is enabled intentionally :) I've had to many times an SMS wasn't sent so I enabled it.
The Send icon is indeed missing, but when you hit the blank button it will sent the SMS/e-mail. This seems to be a Windows 6.5.1 thing though as I had it on all other builds as well (I know, this should stop me in fixing it :)

Thanks again for your feedback, really appreciate it.

It's been a while, but finally I've had some time to start building a new release.
This one is the most stable one I've created and looks and feels great.

Please let me know if you run into any issues!

flashed rom, here are some points:

- missing HTC task manager
- When Manila is reloaded, it doesn't allign with the screen - still occurs, there is no windows/manilafix.exe, only ManilaFixPosit....exe but this won't fix the issue
- Office Mobile folder is empty, i think it can be deleted as there is Office Mobile 2010
- when writing SMS, button to send is empty, there is only gray square
- what about to add some apps, e.g.: PIM Backup, tcmd etc.

but i must say i like to rom, is really fast and smooth!

Great feedback. I'll try to include all of them next time.
One thing on my todo list is re-arranging the start menu indeed, which involves removing the office folder.
Thanks again and keep the feedback coming :)
