Clean and Tweaked 553x21921 build

Tweaks:
Same as 23008 +
1. used the latest Power Consumption patch from ACER
2. added Patch_Acer_1.0_WM61_DX900 Fix Empty SPN
3. added Oxios Memory, VJDeviceLock, Dotfred's Task Manager
4. added Registry Disable - Security warnings when installing non-certified application

Removed SYS files and EXTROM included files are the same as 553x23007 ROM
+
1. removed Lockscreen, using lockscreen eats up around 800kb of RAM
2. removed IPSECVPN

This ROM including it's tweaks is by far the best combination i have used for our device.
Since Lockscreen is removed, VJDevicelock is used it it's place. You can map VJDevicelock on any of the hardware buttons. (personally, i use VJDevicelcok LCDOff and mapped it to my voice record button)

Post ROM Flashing tips:
1. Set Phone 1 to use GSM only, not AUTO
2. Put your ringtones, message tones in the phone memory
3. open comm manager and turn off the Date Connection
4. fully discharge your phone and recharge it overnight for better results
5. install applications in phone memory as much as possible
6. use oxios memory to release ram every now and then
7. lock device using VJDevicelock LCDOff or PowerOff so that the backlight will be turned off also when you lock the phone

I have problems with downloading...
I know you will try to help me but thats why I like other to directly download from my webspace. I do understand that you prefer to have the firmware link in your own control and thereby can change the link to the most up to date version.

Thanks for creating the WM6.5 DX900 ROM.

Hi Erik, you mean you cannot download from Rapidshare? if not, i'll try to upload it somewhere else later :)

Hi Oldsap, good rom, will use it for sometime, just wished the program memory was a little more.

-nasder

oldSAP said...

hi nasder, yeah that also is my problem. hopefully i will be able to have a fix for it. btw in the next release i'll add a send key override for threaded sms so that we can choose from which sim to send to ;)

Anonymous said...

Cool, I'll be your tester then, any other features that you'll add in? It is close to a perfect Rom.

Problems for me so far:
1. Low memory
2. D-pad

Hi OldSAP,

yes I had problems yesterday with downloading from Rapidshare (too much users). Today the download did start.

Thanks,

O no...
While the download was running 30 minutes my SSD drive caused a blue screen. Now I had to restart the 50 minutes downloading but I got a new error message downloading from RapidShare...

Maybe upload it to some other place is a good idea.

oldSAP said...

@Erik, have you tried the skydrive download link files?

Anonymous said...

After using for 2 days, apart from the earlier-mentioned problems, I also encounter:

1. Activesync cannot sync even ticking/unticking the option in usb-to-pc
2. Appointments cannot be set (did not save after creating)

oldSAP, can you look into it?

-nasder

oldSAP said...

@nasder, for the appointments, i have no problem creating one. for the activesync, i haven't tested it. i'll try it later and report back :)

Anonymous said...

that's strange...i tried creating from today and also through calendar, i cannot save the appointment.

my device lasts 2 days with this rom, what about yours? trying to get to 3 days so far unsuccessful :)

Hi, it's a little off topic but I think you guys may be able to help me.

I want to install Hdubli's WM6.5 Lite ROM to my phone but I'm still trying to put all the instructions together. So so far, I have learned that I can install the ROM using two methods.

I downloaded the ROM and the rar contains a new.bin file. The recommended way to install it is to just format an SD card to FAT, put new.bin into the card and run boot loader. However, I don't have an SD card and only an SDHC. I learned that it is not possible to format the SDHC to FAT but only to FAT32. I tried it anyway but the bootloader was just stuck to the first black screen after the record+power+reset procedure.

The second way of installing the ROM from what I have read is to
1. remove the SD card and the SIM cards from the phone
2. download DX900_EU.exe
3. rename new.bin to temp.dat
4. Copy DX900_euus.exe, temp.dat and USBDLUpdate_Console.exe to the temp dir
5. Run DX900_euus.exe and do the normal update as the program says (hit confirm on your device)
6. wait for the update to finish and it should be flashed.

Is this method correct? Where do I get USBDLUpdate_Console.exe from? My DX900 is a WWE ETEN one.

Thank you very much.

kc.

Dawid said...

is battery life better? original WM 6.1 is dissaster for battery..

oldSAP said...

@kc, you can get the USBDLUpdate by running the official ETEN ROM and going to your PC's temp folder.

@Dawid, haven't really tested the battery life because i keep on flashing my device :D

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the reply. I tried the method just now but after the flash is complete, why is it that it just upgraded the ROM to the 610 one?

Thanks again.

kc

oldSAP said...

when you run the official WWE exe file, and you reach this window:
http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/2905/56489454.png
DO NOT CLICK FINISH yet
copy the temp.dat (hdubli's rom) to your PC's temp folder, then click finish until you see this window:
http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/8140/22867184.png
DO NOT CONTINUE, just leave the window open, then run the DX900_EUUs.exe

Anonymous said...

Ok, that explains it :). I'm copying the official temp.dat to my own folder and running DX900_EUUS.exe from there. Thank you very much. I'll try it now :).

Anonymous said...

Hi oldSap, is this build inferior in terms of features than the 23004? Which is newer?

Just flash it over the 23004 using storage card?

Anonymous said...

Can you guide me to flash 6.5? I am currently running 6.1 DX900 ROM but after I tried to flash the same instruction as flashing 6.1 it didn't change anything.

Hi, just to let anyone having the inverted dpad issue know, I came across Deadman2k's fix for the DPAD fix and everything is now working as it should.

1. Get the DX900 dpad fix from this thread: http://eten-users.eu/index.php?showtopic=18179&st=0&gopid=119999&#entry119999
2. Download this zip file from this link: http://www.4shared.com/file/72349611/a82d7cc4/FISH_TOUCHDRV5_BY_GreateVKCAB.html
3. install sdkcerts.cab from zip file above
4. install Deadman2k's fix
5. restart the phone
6. Voila! Working D-Pad

oldSAP said...

@nasder, 23004 is just a little bit behind 23004. and yes you can just flash it using sd card.

@kb, i'll try to make a tutorial later on how to flash 6.5 on 6.1 :)

i tried cooking a 2MB PagePool 21921 rom build but the phone became sluggish :(

hi oldSap, can u cook the device.exe and also the d-pad fix into your future roms?

oldSAP said...

hello, device.exe is already included in my roms :)

Anonymous said...

Yup, but it would be good to include the d-pad fix too as part of the initial installation process.

Waiting for your 21928 build :)...Any of the problems faced in 21925 version?

Anonymous said...

I spot a new navigation in the 21928 build. No more tabs but seems like some arrow keys :)

Any other differences?

-nasder

oldSAP said...

@nasder, i'll add the D-Pad Fix in the next rom i cook but i'll have to allow the user to choose whether to install it or not as some people prefer not to use it.
For the 21928 build, i cooked and re-cooked yesterday and had encountered several bugs so i didn't upload it yet. i'll try to make one again today.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, just make it an option like the device.exe for us to select whether to install or not.

Take your time to fix the bugs...I've a feeling this may be your best Rom yet...looking forward to test it out.

hi, how's the fixing for build 21928 going?

oldSAP said...

21928 also had the same UI as 21925, big menu buttons, etc. which made it impossible to set Phone 1 settings to GSM from AUTO.
i had to switch back to 21921, which to me is still the best.

oldSAP said...

23008 is out, downloading now. i'll cook and test this one.

oldSAP said...

What's Eating My RAM?
things i've tested that eats RAM that cannot be recovered fully by Oxios Hibernate.
1. 6.5 LockScreen
2. Colored Taskbar icons
3. Some Titanium Plugins (CS2P, launches Mortscript on StartUp, others haven't tested yet)
4. Resco Explorer
5. CHome Editor

Anonymous said...

Hi oldSAP, would like try 23008. Are you able to direct me to instructions on how to do this? Is the ROM to new for a beginner to be trying?

Hi! Thanks for your good work... I wonder if localized languages will be available... or language packs.
For instance, I'm Italian and would like to try an italian WM6.5 version.
Cheers from Italy! :-)

oldSAP said...

re: instructions for installing 6.5 rom, i will post a how to later.

@nasder, i did not cook a 23009 rom coz from what i read, it still had the finger friendly type menus and with it, we cannot reach some of the items in the settings, i.e. Set SIM1 to GSM to save battery life. Also, i think it's mostly UI changes anywas.

is build 21921 still the best to your opinion?

NiC said...

Hi oldSAP,

Thank you so much for the wonderful 6.5 ROMs. I have downloaded them but yet to flash it. I am just curious, will I be able to flash the ROM back to the default one later without traces of the ROM being tampered with? For warranty purposes. I have just got the device and can't bear with the sluggishness. Thank you very much.

oldSAP said...

@NIC, imho, you can flash it back to the stock rom.

NiC said...

Thanks oldSAP,

You're a life saver. Running on the 6.5 ROM now. Everything is running good. No more freezes. But only one thing. I tried to install a CAB file for chinese font. The whole windows froze and I had to resort to a hard-reset. Perhaps it's the cab file's registry was meant for 6.1 instead of 6.5?

oldSAP said...

@NiC, might be possible. because the rom i made was for WWE only. i know you use chinese characters in Malaysia. I'll try to cook a Chinese language rom if you like (and if i'll have an extra time). Xie Xie ni Haw Pheng Yow :)

oldSAP!

i just flash my dx900 to 21921 and it keeps getting stuck on installing patch_DX9RIL2_FixEmptySPN. i did a soft reset and hard reset it still stuck there. i heard a beep after it enter that stage can you help me

oldSAP said...

@Emulsify, thanks for pointing it out. i'll fix the cab in the EXTROM and re-upload it tomorrow :)

Emulsify said...

no problem. but can you help me ? i'm stuck @ the patching screen i can't exit or anything do you have any idea how to get my phone working again ?

Anonymous said...

I've flashed using the SD card method successfully but during customization, it has been quite some time at installing the patch_dx9ril2_fixemptyspn.

Is it that long?

Emulsify said...

@oldSAP i fix my phone using the unbrick method haha finally a working phone.

@Anonymous my friend theres a problem with that patch_dx9ril2_fixemptyspn your best bet is to flash to the previous build.

Anonymous said...

Sigh, I've to reflash back to the 21921 build. Was a bit anxious, I thought I bricked my device.

oldSAP, did you manage to test it before release?

@Phan, follow this steps:

but use this:
http://rapidshare.com/files/246520791/magic_bytes_temp.bin
as your temp.dat file

Phan Thanh Ha said...

Thanks! I will try it!

NiC said...

Hi oldSAP!

Thanks for your quick reply. I've solved the Chinese font problem. Just wanted to be able to view Chinese on the device. No need for the FULLY chinese'd ROM. But I'm thank you sincerely for the offer. Everything works fine now except one thing. Internet Sharing. I use the phone to get online and I noticed Internet Sharing is missing. I downloaded the Internet Sharing UI Cab files off the net and installed it. Not working as it was before. Kindly advice on how to proceed with this matter. Thank you. Arigatou :)

oldSAP said...

@NiC, sorry but i removed Internet Sharing from the ROM because i don't use it :P i'll try to find a way for you to be able to reinstall it though

Emulsify said...

@NiC hey can you share how did u manage to view chinese ? i need that function too

NiC said...

@Emulsify - Go google and download a file called sunglobe.cab. It's the chinese font. Simply run it and reset after that. Should be ok.

@oldSAP - Thanks a bunch mate! Love you to bits!

oldSAP said...

i will cook 2 rom build tonight and test it. if everything works out, i'll upload it here. :)

Anonymous said...

And I just finished installing your updated 21921 build :P

What are the builds you're testing?

Daniel said...

Hi, I´ve instaled your last rom on my DX900. It´s look ok, but the UTMS (GPRS) conection are very instable. There are anything that I can do ?

oldSAP said...

@nasder, i tested 23016 and 21935 last night but i wasn't able to boot up with 21935.
23016 rom worked fine so i uploaded it here.
@Daniel, is the gprs connection problem for phone1 or phone2?

Emulsify said...

hey oldSAP i was wondering the build u release 533x23XXX and 533x21XXX

what do they mean ? 533 is that the WEE build? 23XXX and 21XXX what are they? i read that there are different branch of WM6.5 u mind explaining ?

oldSAP said...

i think there are 2 branches that are being developed. one is mainly UI development (21XXX i think) and then if everything goes ok, they will port it also to 23XXX.

Daniel said...

On the GPRS, the problem with the SIM 1 (Phone 1) accept that the only 3G. The status of that is toggling between TIM (Name of carrier) and "No service" and is almost impossible to surf the internet because the constant loss of signal.


I Set the phone to use only GPRS (2G) and do not use UMTS (3G). Improved. But lost much of the speed of navigation.

oldSAP said...

"The 219xx (MD1) tree is basically used for testing UI design features. The actual core OS is OLDER than the 230xx tree, but GUI changes are newer. After the GUI changes are stabilized/refined they are then ported over to the 230xx (COM3) tree. It's a feature testing build only. So some changes you see may come and go and never make it to the main 230xx development tree."

Daniel said...

Thank for these ROMS :)

One problem that you may want to add to your list.

Contacts from the Sims do not appear in contacts?

Cheers.

AJ said...

Thanks for these ROMS! They're awesome.

Is there a way for me to re-add the default 6.5 slide-lock-screen. I'd like to see what it's like compared to the classic lock.

I've just flashed 553.23016 and the a2dp is now working properly which it wasn't in .21921 (no fwd, pause, back from headset).

Again thanks, if there's any way to support your development let me know.

oldSAP said...

@Daniel, try this:
http://oldsap.blogspot.com/2009/01/simshowhide.html to show sim contacts.

@AJ, thank you for the offer :)

Hi oldSAP, since I presume that an Italian version of 6.5 is not on schedule for now (as you didn't even notice my message of days ago), now I come with another question: it is possible to install an italian dictionary for sms words in english WM6.5?
Thanks...

oldSAP said...

@anonymous, sorry for not replying to your previous message. it's hard to keep track if all of you are named "anonymous" :D
i'll try to find an Italian Lang and cook one.

oldSAP said...

@Gino, are you willing to test out an ITA rom then?

oldSAP said...

@AJ, you may try the previous 6.5 builds if you want to try the Lockscreen. I'm testing the 23016 rom using an ETEN 551 base now. hopefully the battery life would be better. If all goes well ill cook one and post it here. an version with Lockscreen will also be available.

Anonymous said...

if you do post using the 551 eten version, that means we've to use the cross language method to update?

oldSAP said...

same method in flashing.
BTW, what usually i do is this:
1. Open temp folder in my PC by typing %temp% on my command line.
2. Copy DX900_EUUs.exe, USBDLUpdate_Console.exe, and temp.dat (rom i want to flash) to my PC's Temp folder
3. Sync phone to PC
4. Execute DX900_EUUs.exe in my PC's temp folder and follow the instructions.
5. That's it.

Anonymous said...

In this case the temp.dat will be the file that we're going to download later if you post it right?

oldSAP said...

yes that is correct. for the previous roms, the same flashing steps also apply.

Anonymous said...

alright, btw, hws build 551? will u include all the tweaks in the 553 build?

hope u'll release it soon :)

oldSAP said...

i'll try to cook it later. what do you think about this forum for the 6.5 roms:
http://oldsap.freeforums.org
kindly comment on it please. is it better using the forum or in here?

Anonymous said...

great idea to have a dedicated forum for all the 6.5 roms, more organized, btw, i've registered.

oldSAP said...

so it's you nasder, hiding here as anonymous :D
thank you for your support :)

Gino said...

Ehr... sorry, "anonymous" Italian was me... forgot to put my name. :)
Thank you very much, oldSAP... I'll test an Italian version as soon as you provide me!
Thanks again and keep up the good work. :)

Phan Thanh Ha said...

Hi, OldSAP. Version 551x53022_Business_Tweaked_temp has issues with USB, PC says unknown device. I tried with Vista and XP and ActiveSync doesn't work. Anyway, keep up the good work.

Now I realize I'm in deep trouble! Without ActiveSync I can't change the ROM to one that works... I need help!!!

Hi oldSAP! I used the SD CARD Flashing method from http://oldsap.freeforums.org/dx900-flashings-methods-magic-bytes-t16.html, because the OS doesn't start and can't connect via activesync.Unfortunately the result is the same: Invalid SDMMC Image file! What can i do?

Thanks

Dodge said...

Many thanks, OldSAP, I'm back in business and already flashed Business Tweaked 553x23016 build.
I really need a stable phone and PPC and I'm really disappointed with DX900. If I understood correctly, this is the most stable release, right? What about 6.1 WM versions, what is the most stable one in your opinion? Can be a cooked one.

oldSAP said...

@anonymous (kindly state your name :) ): try formatting your sd card first.

@dodge, most 6.1 roms are stable, although i prefer ETEN 551 rom for it's battery life. i'll cook a business and tweaked version later :)

Dodge said...

Hey OldSAP, this release I have now is a keeper. So far, so good, I'm very pleased with it. Only one thing is not working fine, but may be network related. When sending SMS with phone 1, I get the delivery notification but the receiver never gets the message. Also, sending MMS works but the delivery notification says the message was rejected... Ever heard anything like this before? Anyone else has the same issue?

Anonymous said...

hi oldSAP. which is newer and stable 23033 or 23403. Thanks Randy

oldSAP said...

they were released just a few days apart. i like 23033 better

Weerapan said...

How should I downgrade to OS_ACER(WWE)_A147.040.0553_WM61 ?
I has to send back to Acer Shop to repair something there.

enigma said...

thanks for the roms.

I have flashed Business Tweaked 553x23016 build, but can not sync with Outlook anymore. It says that it is sync'd but Calendar/tasks/contacts are empty, and it says Windows PC needs attention and need to delete profile and try again. Error code 80004005. Have deleted all profiles and still no success.

Also, do you have transcriber and easykeyboard cab files?

AlexP0wr said...

Just installed 551x23037 instead of the Acer official 553 rom. Wow what a difference in speed and stability. I like it allot.

2 request dough.
1) Could you post or include the cab of Phone2 config tool from the 610 release which fixes that irritating bug not able to change to ringtone from the my ringtones folder
2) Could you provide us a fix for the volume hardware buttons. Its very unhandy not being able to change the volume when in a call.

Thnx oldSap! Nice work.
