Some Himalaya variants


Essential, 30 MB storage for WM5 and WM6

Because starting with WM5 Micro$oft introduced very different memory management, it's no longer possible to shift freely between Storage space and Program memory. After upgrading from WM2003 you'll be left with no more than 14 MB of Storage, just enough for those of us who hardly install any 3rd party software. Fortunately there's a workaround that'll give you 30 MB of storage. The best description can be found here:

Change pagepool Size and RAMDisk size yourself

If you wish to cook your own ROM, or wish to change the size of the RAMDisk or the Pagepool you can do it yourself. Whether it be WM5 or WM6. The complete tutorial can be found here:-

Himalaya FTP site

  • Himalaya Download Folder (HOW-TO)
  • for WM2003

  • for WM2003 Second Edition
      ftp://xda:[email protected]/Himalaya_SEs
  • for WM2005
      ftp://xda:[email protected]/Himalaya2005

Any good FTP client should allow you to browse through the entire xda-dev ftp site. You can find many nice programs, as well as programs turned into OEM packages for use in ROM kitchens. What you will not find there are WM5 or WM6 ROMs because Micro$oft doesn't want us to upgrade our ROMs.
