    Surprise ;-) I made just a minor update to Onyx 4 (WM6.1), to update Opera Mini and Google Maps. I have also removed Skyfire from the ROM, due to their recent abandonment of the Windows Mobile platform.

    I think there are still people who are using this ROM, so... enjoy.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - Part 2 of 2



    Other Questions

    Q. I have problems connecting to WPA encrypted networks.

    A. Try this.


    Q. I want to install back the HTC Cube.

    A. Cube is from 2007 and obsoleted by Manila2D and Titanium. Please search XDA for it.


    Q. An animated battery charging icon appears on the screen whenever I turn off my device while charging.

    A. Do not use SPL 3.14! It also drains battery faster.


    Q. I can't send MMS or surf the web with my data connection.

    A. Run Connection Setup under Settings->Connections.


    Q. How do I get my external bluetooth GPS receiver working?

    A. Read here.


    Q. How to make my headset run another audio player other than Audio Manager?

    A. Read


    Q. I had software that worked in other ROMs but not in Onyx.

    A. You need to upgrade your software because it is not compatible with WM6.1 drivers. Otherwise, I don't know and don't have time to test your software. As a last resort, download Onyx 3.2.1 from the download page, which is a WM6.1 ROM but has WM6.0 drivers.


    Q. How do I disable vibration when phone connects?

    A. Go to the Advanced tab for the phone options and disable it there.


    Q. How do I increase ringer or system volume?

    A. Go to the registry, and find the following parameter: HKLM\SOFTWARE\HTC\AUDIOGAIN\EAC_GAIN_EMBEDDED. Change it to a value between 67 (default) and 77 (maximum recommended) and then reboot. Don't go so high that it blows out your speaker! There are other registry entries under the AUDIOGAIN key which may apply to headset and mic volume. Simply search the forum for their functions.


    Q. How do I increase in-call volume?

    A. Low in-call volume usually happens because the caller on the other line has a bad connection to your phone. First, make sure you tried to increase the volume during a call by using the side volume button! This can only be changed during a call. Next, go to the registry and try this. Aside from that, I cannot think of any other solution.


    Q. Audio Manager shuts down whenever I try to open it.

    A. Delete the songs or format the card and copy the songs back.


    Q. Audio Manager or other program shuts down instead of minimizing when I close it.

    A. Click on the Task Manager on top right, go to its options to change the X button property.


    Q. In Onyx Micro, how do I show battery status in title bar instead of the clock?

    A. See this post.


    Q. I don't see any Bluetooth icons on title bar when I enable Bluetooth.

    A. The icons were disabled due to many requests (icons were taking up space and annoying). See here to add them back.


    Q. TCPMP does not work in Onyx 4.0 or higher.

    A. Try this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3263631&postcount=294. Otherwise, read this thread for a semi-working version and some discussion. TCPMP has issues with a lot of 6.1 cooked ROMs that use 6.1 official ROMs as a base.


    Q. SRS WOW does not work in Onyx 4.0 or higher.

    A. Try this one.


    Q. I can't receive files by Bluetooth.

    A. Turn Beam on. ;)


    Q. How do I change Menu Bar pop-up fonts back to regular size?

    A. Go to the registry, and find the following keys:
    \HKLM\ System\ GWE\ Menu\ BarFnt
    \HKLM\ System\ GWE\ Menu\ PopFnt

    For regular font, in both keys, change "Ht" to a decimal value of 800 (or hex value 320).
    For large font, use a decimal value of 1050 (or hex value 41A).


    Q. My SMS and mail messages suddenly disappeared after I restored them with PPC Pim Backup!

    A. Don't restore your SMSes while the Messaging application is open. Ensure it is terminated with the Task Manager.


    Q. I want threaded SMS.

    A. Run Advanced Configuration tool and change the option under Messaging.
    OR set registry: \HKCU\ Software\ Microsoft\ Inbox\ Settings\ OEM\ SMSInboxThreadingDisabled = 0.


    Q. I cannot enable Wi-Fi in Comm Manager while it is connected to USB ActiveSync.

    A. Try this link. If it still doesn't work, then also under Settings->Connections->USB to PC change the state of "Enable faster data synchronization". If this is unsuccessful, then just turn on Wi-fi under System->Connections->Wireless LAN.


    Q. How do you zoom and rotate pics in HTC Album?

    A. Use your fingertip: Stroke a full circle to zoom, and stroke a semi-circle to rotate. Hold down on the picture for a couple of seconds to move the picture around.


    Q. I get errors when I try to uninstall/remove a program.

    A. Maybe this post will help.


    Q. PPC PIM Backup is really, really slow.

    A. Make sure you don't restore Sent Mail or Trash Mail from your Text Messages. Also, in my own testing, on MOST ROMs, I have noticed that after restoring my PIMs, usually my device slows down so I have to do a soft reset to fix it.


    Q. In Onyx Ultimate, I disabled SIM contacts in Advanced Configuration; however, they still come back after a reset.

    A. For versions before 4.1, Follow the tip here. For 4.1 and later, remove the entire registry key for Cyberon under HKCU\Software \HTC \Bootlauncher\Services, and reboot.


    Q. How do I get Arabizer to work?

    A. See this post.



    Q. Why is Wi-fi unable to turn back on after coming out of standby? It was working in version "x" but not in this new version.

    A. No, this "issue" also happened in previous versions too. I never saw it happening on mine, and neither have a lot of of other people, so I don't know what the reason could be. Do not install programs that may interfere with its functionality, also do not have Bluetooth enabled.


    Q. My program relies on SQL and it doesn't work.

    A. Go here


    Q. How do I access the registry?

    A. Here.


    Q. Can you give me some links to more useful add-ons, utilities, CAB files, etc?

    A. Here you go:
