Welcome to the "EnergyROM" thread !

If you're looking for a TMobile USA compatible ROM, you found one! :)


This development thread is for my "Energy" custom firmware series for the HTC Touch HD2 (Leo) device.


The current build numbers and date can be seen in the title of this thread. I usually update the ROMs every few days, as new builds come down the pipe.

I also build my ROMs with four main goals.

  • Eye candy ( I want my ROM to look great and for it to all flow together nicely)
  • Speed !!!
  • Smoothness, consistency and good aesthetics
  • Stability through private beta testing before public release

I pre-configure a lot of things in my ROM, because when I flash it on my phone, I want it ready to go. So, expect the backlight to be set at the maximum brightness, the ringtone, sms/email and other notifications to already be set. Doing it this way, makes for a nice ROM that's ready out of the box.

I recommend learning to backup your settings with either Sashimi or UC (User Customization). Backing up with SPB Backup or similar products, is NOT recommended, as they tend to backup the previous release's registry/file bugs as well!



Looking at the download folder you will find two core versions of my ROM.


  • The 21916 Build which is the most reliable and bug free release. It has the Start menu button at the top left corner! I recommend you start with this first! :)

  • The 29022 Build that's the latest in the 6.5.X series with the Start menu button at the bottom left corner and big softkeys. These builds are not as stable or perfect, but they reflect the latest cutting edge technology from Microsoft. These are also much more finger friendly throughout.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can stay up to date on the status of my ROM development by "following" me on Twitter.

It's definitely the fastest way to get in touch with me and please don't be afraid to tweet me if you see major issues with the ROMs.
I generally do not answer "support" questions on Twitter, as it's really not the proper medium for that. Service packs and quick fixes will always be released
as links in my tweets and that's definitely the fastest way to get a fix for a ROM.

This post features all the Cookie Hometab based ROMs I make.


The original ROM is the "energy" version and that's a good starting point. All the rest, are themes applied to that ROM.
They all come in two versions,
Cookie 1.8.5 and Cookie 2.0 (the ROM filename will be labeled "Cookie" and "Cookie.2.0, plus the name of the theme)

You can see more screenshots of these ROMs a couple of posts down.

The two Cookie versions look pretty similar, but Cookie 2.0 has multiple sliding homescreens/freely moveable widgets (similar to Android) and
quite a few more features and speed.

My own 'Energy' style

  • This is the best ROM version and the way Sense should have been designed by HTC

  • Three built in lockscreens. "HD Mini" style, Manila style or Windows style
  • 3 pages of quicklinks with a configurable amount of shortcuts displayed

'Standard' ROMs that have no addons installed on the homescreen. Stock Sense 2.5 !



EnergyROM_Standard_Energy.png


'Energy'

  • This series retains the stock functionality of the Sense UI. The files have been compressed by "CFC" compression. making the UI lighter and faster
  • This ROM still retains my theme and style, plus all the regular apps you find in my ROMs.
  • There are no homescreen addon-ons in this ROM. The best speed and the most stock functionality.

EnergyROM_Reference.png

'Reference'

  • This ROM is mostly for people that want a close to stock ROM with the stock visual style. It's also perfect for doing your own customizations.
  • A lot of the cooked in apps are removed in this ROM, the Start menu back to the stock 3 row style
  • Sense and everything else is back to the default HTC green.








ROMs mostly created for enthusiasts...


EnergyROM_MaxSense.png

MaxSense UI (android style homescreen)

  • This is a complete rewrite of the Sense homescreen, by maxycy.
  • It features a 3 screen, Android style, homescreen with widgets! The widgets can be placed ANYWHERE on the three screens.
  • 75 Quicklink accessible on all tabs
  • You should really visit the original thread for this mod shown on the next line to see all the features!
  • Link to the original thread for this mod is here > Click <.

EnergyROM_Titanium.png

Titanium (ROMs for raw speed!)

  • This is a minimal ROM version without Sense in it. It's used primarily for people that like to customize the default 6.5 homescreen (Titanium)
  • You can use it to install alternate homescreen interfaces like SPB Mobile Shell, etc
  • Very low memory footprint and good battery life, but very simple and lacks a lot of features that you would otherwise have available in Sense...

ROM features at a glance:



  • Very fast startup time. You won't find any startup wizards in this ROM. You'll be up and running in a couple minutes after flashing the ROM and ready to go. No need to spend time to set everything up.

  • XDA_UC is built in. It will import your custom XML and REG files from your storage card after first boot.

  • My own Settings Exporter application is found in the Tools folder. Use it to export all your settings after you customize the device. When a new ROM comes down the line, use it to import everything and save time.

  • Everything is setup to use the phone right after flashing. Sounds, notifications, all options, etc

  • The HTC Messaging client is removed, leaving the windows built SMS client for much faster texting, but still able to use a nicely skinned Sense text messaging app with "iphone style" messaging bubbles.

XDA_UC FAQ


The XDA_UC cooked in my ROMs is modified from the stock XDA_UC made by Noonski. Great addon, by the way... Noonski did a great job with this !

The version in my ROMs is trimmed down to fit the needs of my ROM series.


Some of the extra features are:



  • It will copy shortcuts (.lnk files) found in \XDA_UC\Start Menu\ to the device's start menu folder (\windows\Start Menu) in the hierarchy that it finds on the storage card. For example: Let's say you have a navigation package on the storage card, like Navigon. If you make a shortcut to the navigon.exe file as Navigon.lnk and copy it to \XDA_UC\Start Menu\GPS\ as "Navigon.lnk" then on a fresh ROM install it will copy any shortcuts it finds there to the same location on the device, so it'll end up in \Windows\Start Menu\GPS\. This works for other folders on the Start Menu as well. Just put the shortcuts in \xda_uc\Start Menu\ in the folders you will like the shortcuts to appear to, on the device.

  • It will copy a custom splash screen from \Storage Card\XDA_UC\welcomehead.192.png to \windows automatically and overwrite the one in the ROM.

  • It will copy a custom Sense background found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\sense\wallpaper_sense.png to the device and set that wallpaper as default in Sense. So rename your wallpaper as "wallpaper_sense.png" and drop it in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\sense\ and on the next ROM flash that wallpaper will become your wallpaper in Sense.


Other than that XDA_UC works as designed by Noonski and it will do the following things:



  • It will automatically import your PPCbackup (*.pib) file found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\

  • It will install custom XDAS scripts found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\

  • It will silently install CAB files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\

  • It will install special CAB files that require user input (such as Agreements or any type of prompt) found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\SD

  • It will silently import REG files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\

  • It will silently install REG files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\Exporter, as exported by my own Settings Exporter, ONLY if the "automatic" file is also present in that folder (and it most cases it should be, enable that option in the Settings Export application's menu)

  • It will silently import XML files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\

  • It will silently import CER files (usually Exchange certificates) found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\

  • It will silently run custom MSCR files found in \Storage Card\XDA_UC\


That's it, but don't forget to checkout the Addons folder and look in the XDA_UC section for tips and tutorials on how to export your email/wifi settings and various little .reg and tweaks you can add to your XDA_UC collection.

As always don't forget to check what installs automatically before reporting a problem with the ROM. Most of the time, if you notice you have a problem that nobody else is experience is because one of the cabs you dropped in the XDA_UC folder is installing automatically while you don't even think about it.

This was the first rom I tried, went to a few others, and went back. The eye candy and all the little extras are a nice touch.

Of note is battery drain is a bit excessive (as noted in the original thread). I'm losing 10% an hour and that is with very minimal use. I'm using cookie 23549. I did try 21895 but I didn't like it as much. Anybody think that will be better on battery life?

Thoughts?

Do you have any mirrors to your ROMs? I haven't been able to get a complete DL. It keeps cutting of in the middle and I'm very anxious to try them.

I had the same results. Just below the battery seemed to get really warm on 23549. So, I am going to try 21895 Cookie out for a day or two to see what happens.

Not crapping on it. Like I sad, it's a great ROM. My phone just happens to get hot using it. Instead of 23549, maybe I'll try 21895.

You always get defensive when someone criticizes your ROM?

For those of you with "warm" batteries for the 26th release, do this:

- Go into \Windows\StartUp and delete "MMTaskManagerhook.lnk" - this is a big savings according to NRG (reboot)
- Turn off your auto "weather" and "stock market" refresh
- Go into Start > Tools > Device Lock and uncheck "enabled" and "lock if playing music"
- Turn down your screen's brightness and/or put on "automatically adjust backlight" (this is a huge savings as well)

Using the "tbattery" app located in Start > Tools > tBattery, my temperature is around 26' C and the draw is around -150 to -160. At idle (suspend), it is around -4 to -5.

Saying you removed the ROM because you device gets warm is a little more than criticism. Maybe you should try another version at least, before posting that it sucks so bad, you had to uninstall it from your device.

p.s. And yes, I get defensive when I know what's being said doesn't do the ROM justice. You have no idea how much work goes into making these ROMs...

NRG good stuff man you always been a great rom developer. I have been using you since TP2.
I have one question though. why do you all(cooks) use opera 10. I love my pinch to zoom on 9.7 and see no reason why we need 10. Other than that your roms always are the best hands down.

NRG,

Excellent ROM. Just picked up my HD2 and could not wait to put on the Energy Rom. I have been watching it's development through the TP2 (as that is what I wanted before the HD2), but I'm stoked to have the HD2 and this awesome Rom.

Thank you

Awesome rom! Thank you! Please whack XDA-UC in favor of plain old UC

Hi NRG,

First off, thank you very, very much for your hard work! I LOVE THIS ROM!

Could I please request that XDA_UC be replaced by good old plain UC in the next builds? I found that XDA-UC, when ran, eats all my XML files in the SD card, drinks all my beer, fraks my cat, and ends up passed out, naked, and covered in puke on the floor :)

BTW, what radio version do you recommend for this March 26th ROM? What Rilphone.dll version have you cooked in?

And again, THANK YOU!
