Everything works as it should, so far.
The ROM's default is 96dpi using RealVGA (icon under Settings), but there's no support for 128dpi. No big deal, though.
I've installed Tom Tom 6, MemoryMap, Timesheet Sidekick, LiveMesh, TCPMP, WiFiFoFum and a few others, and they all work just fine.

The WinMo 6.1 splash screen is blue, as are the banners during screen calibration. Aside from the compact framework and RealVGA is seems very similar to Cmonex's ROM, but with a few cosmetic changes.

And now for the bad news: Currently I'm flashing Cmonex's ROM again. I also have a Touch Diamond, which I mostly use as my phone, but I stick the SIM into my x7510 every so often, especially when I need to use Remote Desktop to support some of my clients.
And I cannot get the phone on my x7510 to turn on! No matter what I do it just remains turned off in Comm Manager, so no Net connection, no calls and no SMS messaging!

I don't know whether there is something wrong with my device, or with the ROM, which is why I'm reverting to a ROM where the phone worked.

I'll update this post again later with the results.

I've just posted a reply under your new thread "Strange Problem". I don't think I've solved anything.

Sorry xtep I'm now not keen to load your ROM until we have some beter data on NanoRuler's problem

Just to clear things up, I'm certainly NOT blaming Xtep's ROM for the problem I'm experiencing.

Instead I'm saying I don't know what caused it and until I have a clearer idea what caused it (and vitally, how to solve it!) I must have an entire list of suspects.

If the issue was not caused by this ROM I will post here a.s.a.p. to say so.

The issue I was having had NOTHING to do with this ROM. Instead, there was an error with the radio my x7510 was using.
Xtep very kindly assisted me and provided a new radio. After flashing the new radio to my device all connectivity was restored.

Following that, I re-flashed Xtep's ROM and my x7510 is working just fine and dandy!

Nice ROM and nice cook!

That is great news - we done both of you.

What is the radio version you are referring to? The only radio I have seen is ver 1.58.00.00 which was the stock radio that came with my x7510.

Finally, in order to perform a successful flash of xTep's rom from xacsx's WWE Final (released Dec 30th) is sounds as if I should:

1. flash back to cmonex's 3.29 Rom
2. flash cmonex's ExtRom
3. flash xTep's Rom

Do you you agree with those steps?

The radio is 1.58, and yes, those steps sound about right, although you ought to be able to skip flashing Cmonex's ROM.
Because Xacsx's ROM and Xtep's ROM both have their own extended ROM it is best to overwrite the extended ROM with the plain vanilla one Cmonex supplied.
Although I'm not quite sure exactly what caused the radio on my device to misbehave, I don't believe either Xacsx's or Xtep's ROM would be to blame.
Instead it was probably down to the sequence I had gone through changing things on my device.

Hi xTep, after NanoRuler's issues were cleared up I've jumped into ver 1.0 of your ROM - seems very snappy after the slowness of the original stock ROM - well done. I'm downloading ver 1.01 now.

Could I request the inclusion of the 128dpi selection in your next ver along with 96dpi - sometimes the very small resolution is too small especially for working on Word docs and the like.

I also see the the Comm Manager does not show correctly under Real VGA. xacsx managed to fix that in his ROM, and vidmabal's VcommManager was an early workaround.

I applaud your thoughts to try and push the boundaries towards WM 6.5 for our devices. I'd certainly like to see a different look for our devices and a bit more color to brighten the Today screen up. Do you think there is any more mileage to be made in the earlier attempts to get manila 2D working?

Thanks for all your great work.

I liked the (WWE)rom 1.01.

The only reason why I stepped back to the stock is the incompatibility between realvga and the new X7510 contacts interface.

Now I am running stock with the omnia browser from your signature.
Thanks a lot.

Suggestion:
A usefull tool to have at start is SynchroTime. It synchronises the time of the device with a internet time server. You only have to set the time-zone and are ready to go. Extremely useful when you hard-reset and flash it a lot.

It is freeware and downloadable here:

What do you mean? I have no problem with contacts on realVga mode (96dpi). Anyway you can switch back to Vga mode (192 dpi) with Settings-System-RealVGA.

I did a google image-search for it:
pc_capture31.png


It is the grey alphabetical selection-field on the right side that is
much easier than the grey scroll one.
