This Kitchen has built in AT&T customize on first install and on HR, if you don't need it just remove the OEMOPERATORS FOLDER from the OEM Folder.

This build contains SYS and ROM in "Part #1" and OEM packages in "Part #2"
This Kitchen is so complete I had to break into 2 parts. Download and extract both parts and put all files and folders into one directory to use.

I am not responsible if you don't know what you are doing and brick your phone, but in the spirit of XDA-Developers I am sure someone here willing to help!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Latest SYS and ROM (part1) Ver8.1.0
Latest OEM Packages (part2) Ver8.1.0


Version Information:

ALL "call home" issues have been castrated! No more Customer feedback.

SDHS Memory should be full supported now! Seems to have always been present in the Official MS Wizard ROM.

All Phone issues resolved! Use the proper radio for your carrier and phone.

Wifi Issues resolved! Automatically connect to preferred networks.

Connect to Internet Via Active Sync.

For Clarification:
1) This is the original InGeNeTiCs' ROM all I did in this Version is strip out the "call home" stuff, added a few dlls that were missing but were needed for some of the HTC/touch apps (these files can be found in sys/missing files).
2) There are two OEMOPERATORS folders, one in OEM and one in SYS the one in OEM is one I put there as a example of how you can add your own cab files for settings, splash screen or whatever it is you need simply edit the config.txt file and put whatever files in the files you need. *I am not going to to into great detail how to do this all it takes is a little common since. You can delete mine if you like.
3) There are no hidden, super secret, xda-elite only, make my Wizard fly, bullshit tweaks included. just a clean, won't leave a bad taste in your mouth unless you burn it, Kitchen.
4) My only reason for creating this kitchen is to prove that the "InGeNeTiCs'- Official Microsoft-Made Specifically for the Wizard-Drivers and all ROM" is as solid and stable as any other ROM or kitchen out there if done right. Other than all I did is create and add a lot of OEM packages so you could have choices in life.
The base is like Coca-Cola "Original".


Everything works as it should the only limitations are M$ related!

This has been a fun ride but the ride seems to have come to an end.
This release is so stable that I can not bear to call it a beta anymore.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all that have contributed to this project. In the end I'm sure we all wanted WM6 but we wanted a stable version that didn't crash, lock up, and just plain ol' worked!


Credits to the ones that made the tools to make this possible: faria, anichillus, bepe and mattk_r for asking me to take the plunge.

First Thoughts.....

This ROM looks to be more stable than the last one, and also I see that the reboot slowdown issue is non-existent.(It would slow down horribly on the 3rd-or-so reboot/SR) Overall, faster.

HTC AudioManager + Recorder are NOT working, but maybe that's just a package issue (I used one of my packages I had lying around). Pretty much that's it.

Wi-Fi is OK, nothing major. No phone issues as of yet.

I did not test the Home Plugin because I used my 6-tab plug. That works quite well.App Launching is a little bit faster, or maybe that would just be me:)
Word completion works,KB is fine (tested in Notes)

I would give it a 9.5/10 (only because of no Touch camera:D ,otherwise, it rocks!)

:D
Audio manager package that is in OEM that was included in this build is reworked for this kitchen and works fine. Recorder is in process still.
Do you know of a working 4. camera package or one in a pre-built Wizard ROM?
Do you have a Home Plugin OEM to incorporated?

This works with the included *cities.xml file. The PNGs are compressed to increase speed. Works fine. It's in color.

Got AM working (my mistake, used a wrong package:p) but VoiceRec is still offline. Not that I use it all that much.

I think I have a bug : you need to have WMP installed to get AM working.

EDIT: New package with "Pro" icons added.

Did you use AM from 5.0 kitchen or your own?

Custom tweaks

whats in the custom tweaks?

Enable all sounds

Remove clock and put battery indicator on top instead (if you press & hold it will bring up power/battery tab).

Add day and date to touch home plug-in you can change it to display as you like:
dddd will give you day of week as a word as in "Thursday", dd will give you date style (numeric day of the month) as in "30" without quotes of course.
The same is true for month mmmm and year yyyy so experiment!

HTC WMP today plug in

I added a bunch of packages to the kitchen and have de-bugged most of them, this one I can't find. During the OS Build the process errors out at "OEM\HTC WMP Today Plug-in" with a dialog that says "The file 'temp\dump\WmpPluginToday.dll' already exists. Know I know this is telling me that a previous package has used this dll flile, what I can't find is which one it is!

Any input greatly appriciated.

Tick off HTC-WMP home plugin if you are using the 6-tab home plugin I uploaded.(It's already included)

Thanks Merlin.. I do have your 6-Tab in the OEM and checked off. I will put a note in the Options.xml so I wont forget.

I am having the same issue with 'OEM\HTC X Button 1.5 mattk" the dialog says "...TaskManager.cpl already exists". I have X Button 1, X button 1.5 mattk and X button 1.5 whiterat in the OEM only whiterat's is selected though.

Thanks again

HTC X-Button 1.5 offers nothing more over 1.0. 1.0 works fine with this ROM ver 5.0 (I use it)
But, if you really want it ,try mattk's package.

Ok, I already took both the 1.5 ver out of OEM. Now its complaining about sys/touchflo.dll.

edit; NOob error... left both touchflo and non-touchflo enabled in the build... fixed. :)

Have you built with the NON-TouchFlo dll selected?

1st flash test report

Ok,
So I got the build to run with Merlin's help (thank you Sir). Flashed back to T-Mobile 2.26, up to IPL/SPL 3.08 and GSM 2.69.11 then the kitchen build.
First the good news:
1. For the first time in a dozen or so ROMs I have flashed Voice Command workes flawlessly! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!
2. Basic functions work good, no glaring errors.
3. As theloon noted, the backlight controls will not lock the wizard.
The bad news:
1. If I attempt to launch any CAB file (including the 2.69 radio fix) I get a message saying "CAB failed to load"
2. see #3 above, it doesnt lock the wizard, it however will not open backlight control either. recommend taking this out of the launcher and just leave it in the settings page.
3. HTC Audio manager, if I attempt to open any audio file I immediatly get a message saying "critically low on system memory..." WMP still works fine.
4. The dastardly weather application doenst like the XML file i built for it. I wish there was a way to test that without building. (see questions below)
5. I used merlin's 6 button HTC home plug in, looks very nice BTW, couldnt do much testing on it since my contacts DB is at work. My only negative on this one, the musical note icon (far right) is very hard to see. I dont know who did the icon art but perhaps we could find a better icon?
6. I tried loading the AT&T extended ROM as part of this build, bad idea. The flash gets to 5% and crashes... took it out, flashes fine.

Questions:
1. Is there a way to test the weather XML file without building it into the ROM? IE: If i build the the ROM with the weather XML file included in the build I can only edit it. I cant delete, replace etc. So I was thinking that if I took it out of the build and put the file in after, maybe I could speed up testing.
2. Several of the packages dont seem to have any output, IE: the WMP home plug in, I dont see anything on the home screen that relates to WMP?

So there it is, I have to re-flash to a fully working ROM before I go to work tomorrow. I will be on line all day (from my office) so post away..

thanks Loon for letting me test this, great fun!

LOL? I think not dear Senior Member... I have tried every possible way to delete that file, stop the plug included. The file properties say "included in ROM" and will not allow changes to file prop. Thats why I asked about building without it, so the file properties would allow changes.

What I can deduce from your observations all/most of your "hanging" problems seem to stem from the final size when you build your ROM.
I have experienced this myself, the max size for a wizard rom is around 56 MB for the ROM, but that does not include Boot loaders, Radio and Extended ROM.
In my case my phone is locked so the "customize" just uses storage/program space and does some reg tweaks.
If you want more space in your build you can use the compression tools located elsewhere in this forum.
As for the Home Plug weather XML make sure it's attributes are not set to "read only" and you should be able to exchange them at will and SR to test there usability.
My HTC Audio Manager works flawlessly not sure what you did! be careful using other OEM packages, the ones I included in this beta were designed and tested to work with this beta.
FYI HTC Audio Manager was built using Windows Media SDK so it uses components of WMP (dlls and such), I will probably move those components to different directories.
Backlight is a matter of a redirect/link.
Feel free to fix any/all issues and post for everyone to test!!!:D

...but tell me, can you "overwrite" that ROM file? you should...
