Changes to release schedules

Due to the fact that a lot of people are having issues with newer, less tested Windows Mobile builds, I have decided to split the development of my ROM into two chains. These chains are the Development chain, and the Stable chain.

These chains will be defined by release numbers. Odd release numbers will be stable builds. Even release numbers will be development builds. From this point forward, Release 9 will be the first stable build under this method. The next update to the stable build will be 9.1, 9.2 etc. The first development version will be Release 10.

When the development release becomes of a stable quality by the majority of people testing the ROM, the ROM will be frozen and development will stop. At that point, the final development release will become the next stable release. For example, when Release 10 becomes stable, it will be called Release 11. Release 12 will then become the next development release.

To make things easier to understand, the PHKv12 will be removed, and all ROMs will be referred to by Release number.

So what does this mean for you? If you require your device to be stable, or have issues with the Development release, use the stable build. If you would like to test a more bleeding edge build, then try the development build. If you run in to troubles with the development build, please post in the development thread so the issues can be looked at.

NOTE: If you cannot have your device crash or do weird things, only flash the Stable build - DO NOT use the development build if you rely 100% on your phone.

Looks great

The new ROM so far looks really great. I have just installed it and still testing.
One thing I found out is that I am not able to do any changes in Sounds & Notifications. I am able to choose a different ringtone for example, but I am not able to click the ok button after doing changes. When hitting ok, nothing happens.
Well, maybe I am just doing something wrong.

Thanks for the new ROM!!

This is a known issue (See post #2). I'm working on a fix for this now. Should be fixed within 48 hours.

Quick observations for Release 2:
  • Application locked. Use signed registry editor to unlock.


  • Hrrrm - Which application showed you this? I haven't had anything come up telling me I need to unlock as yet.

    [*]Default keyboard, Hermes? Change typical registry setting for 8525.
That's it so far. Seems speedy enough.

Yeah - the default keyboard is the tytn variety.

Release 2 has now been uploaded to the mirrors which should fix most problems people were seeing. It also includes some updates, new features, and more free space :)

Congrats!!...where'd you get the base rom???...I've got TNT.133 tweaked so well, that I am loath to change anything(altho I've got a nice backup of everything. So Here's the question....


WHY upgrade from 6 to 6.1?​

Is there a head to head, feature by feature comparison anywhere?

Thanks, and good luck to you "early adopters"...I think I'll take a wait and see attitude until there is compelling evidence here and other Xda threads, to upgrade.

Thanks for your work and input guys!!
