ROMeOS² [07/11] WM6.5.23081 [v3.01] for Touch Pro

Well, I've finally taken the plunge and flashed a custom ROM for my Touch Pro in the form of monx's ROMeOS. Monx caused a bit of controversy a few months back saying that he wanted to leave xda-developers and if anybody wanted his ROMs they would have to contribute to get it. This caused some uproar with members saying it's not his to 'sell' while others backed him.

Anyway, he was back on xda-developers and surprised a lot of people by offering this new ROMeOS build.

Based on 23081 build and clean. Codenamed RAnDIUM.

Flashing was easy but you would need to hardspl your Touch Pro/Fuze. Read this guide

After wards it was smooth sailing...

The ROM itself is nice! I love the fonts that come with it. It is stable and fast. There are quite a few bugs as people in the release thread and me have reported:

"This is a terrific ROM! Thank you very much for writing it.

I've seen very few problems with it so far. One issue is the text messaging popup window stating SMS/MMS sent with the Dismiss button at the bottom. That window is a little annoying and I haven't found a setting for removing it. Is there a way of removing the popup window or is this something for a hotfix?

Another issue is the icons on the top right that look like one for power, another for the speaker, a tiny clock and the signal bars/data signal type icon. The problem here is that touching the clock, speaker or power icons on my phone results in a screen indicating general status with a power percentage and the cell network being used listed at the top. While this makes sense for the power icon and/or the signal bar area, it doesn't make sense for the speaker icon or tiny clock. Also, when the status screen displays, sometimes the power percentage bar near the top of the screen is a disrupted image to the point of being unreadable. By disrupted image, I mean light colored static-like pixels in thick waves across the bar, which are sometimes different colors and other times white."

"I have a few issues on this otherwise fantastic rom.

1. when a call comes in, it takes a while for the vibration to stop after i click answer.

2. when editing an appointment using the manilla calender, the date is stuck - even when picking a new date, it still shows the old date. also the calender seems to be too big for vga - the accept/yes buttons are not seen on the screen, need to scroll down with d-pad

3. the size of manilla itself - maybe not monx's fault. the icons appear a bit cut out at the bottom. on some of my programs, the input box is cut in half because of it. sometimes everything seems aligned, sometimes not.

4. the task terminator as people have said, can only be used once - can't seem to open again when clicked for some reason. I prefer the htc task manager which drops down than this."


Monx was apparently going to release some updates for this ROM but never surfaced as yet. I'm waiting patiently since I don't like to flash another ROM and begin customisation from scratch! There are other great chefs abound in the Touch Pro thread, but I've been following threads very closely and felt that monx is the best around hence decided to flash his!

Ivy the Kiwi? Coming soon to Windows Phone

I saw a post made at Mobile Tech World about Ivy the Kiwi? Thinking that it is about New Zealand, I clicked on it, and saw a video about this awesome new game for Windows Phone! It is by the co-creator of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Man it looked really interesting. Ivy moves forward and you use your stylus to draw/make these vines to direct her. It reminds me of Numpty Physics. Looks really interesting. Wait for it in the Windows Phones App Store.

Have a look at this cool video.

Back FavPeople Up - Save/restore your TouchFlo Favourite people

Back FavPeople Up for HTC devices

I just found out about this tool. It's a very neat app that can save your 'Favourite' people tab in HTC's TouchFlo/Manila today screen. Since it is meant for this, it will not work on non-HTC devices.

This comes in handy if you flash ROMs quite often and need to restore your Favourite people tab.
