Paul's guide to... changing the HTC Touch / T-Mobile Wing PagePool size

296 posts in this topic

Hi Paul,

I followed your tutorial step by step and was able to complete is successfully, but dont see any change. I checked the memory settings page like you said and I do not see anything different. What should the values on the memory page be set to?

I successfully performed the 6MB update (used patch) for my T-Mobile Wing. Talk about a scary 15 minutes. Well worth it and working great.

Thanks Paul!!!!! Are you ever going to post those extra memory tips, that you said you might post, "after you got back from the holidays"? :)

Oh. I assumed you meant non extreme tips like editing startup, services, etc. :)

Let's hope that Wing RUU comes soon (if at all?).

I followed the guide and everything went perfectly. :)

I used the 6mb Wing patch and have noticed a huge increase in speed.

Thanks for the guide Paul! Any other tweaks would be greatly appreciated.

There is a (official Touch ROM) RUU available at pdamobiz:

RUU_Elf_DOPODASIA_WWE_1.11.707.1B_4.1.13.42_02.93.90_Ship.exe

I think this would help to get the Touch back to life if you damaged it with a wrong flash.

Did anyone tried to use this RUU to fix the phone? I want to do the pagepool hack, but I really afraid that I would mess it up.

Is this RUU for any versino of the phone? I got a english version from HK, is it ok to use this RUU?

Thanks.

ok, i changed pagepool size of my htc touch to 4MB and have about 5MB more space than before.

but there's f.e. a program (which is very important to me) which is soo big, it needs about 19MB to run. ok, on other devices with 20MB memory left it runs perfectly but on the touch with about 22MB left it only starts but you can't work with it, the startup screen appers but i can't make it work (before changing pagepool it couldn't even start the program because of low memory with about 15-17MB left). after trying to type in something (german program most of you don't know about) and searching for something it shows the memory warning and stops working.

how is that? it runs perfect on devices with 20MB memory (but no change in pagepool size) but only starts, and then stops working on htc touch with 22MB (pagepool size changed to 4MB) free program memory.

@ Paul, first of all thank you for one of your many awesome contributions.....just curious to know if I would be able to restore a complete backup successfully with no adverse affects after I do the "pagepool" mod and would you recommend it, in your honest opinion? (since it will still be the same ROM)....as always greatly appreciate your time and help/advice, thank you.

regards........ :)

You mean using Sprite Backup or similar?

Yes, that'd work fine :)

Paul your a genius...

Just did both the Orange HTC Touch devices i picked up today!

Must ask a poll to be raised perhaps as a seperate thread if you can?

We have the touch and have changed the page file to 4mb.

What have others done for the touch as most people posting to this thread seem to be talking about the wing, so i ask what other touch users are using 4mb or 6mb and how is it working for them?

Again, thanks Paul.

Regards,

Chris

When I run the patcher, I get an error that the file that it's meant to patch isn't the same as the file that I have. Tells me that maybe the file has been patched already, but I know for a fact that it hasn't since I even made an extra copy of it. Do some wings come with slighly different firmware? I edited the file by hand, too, but that message that the patcher gave me scared me out of using it....

ROM Version: 4.10.531.3 WWE

ROM Date: 03/15/07

Radio version: 02.83.90

Protocol version: 4.1.13.37

ExtROM version: 4.10.531.103

Same here

just did PAUL's Amazing guide, followed step by step and used the patcher to replace step #4, happy to report my t-mobile wing is now functioning 110% :)

Good job man! you are a genius! this pagepool was a critical flaw in the wing...

i did everything under windows xp.... so i think it would be safer to not to do it in vista since everything worked flawlessly for me in xp, lol if someone can write a small program that automates this process, i believe many people would pay $10-$30 for it, earn a quick buck lol

ANYWAYS, THANKS PAUL!

you guys are such geniuses here, maybe you can help me with this:

has anyone notice that on the TMOBILE WING, if you TURN OFF ALL RADIOS (phone, bluetooth, wifi) at night when you goto sleep, battery at 100%, the next morning when you wake up the battery will be around 50-70%? ironically, if i leave my cellular radio on, the next morning the battery will be at 98% or 99% even 100%... does anyone know what is wrong? I've heard a few other users complain about this issue, if you don't believe me, give it a try tonight!

THANKS

Thank you Paul and everybody else - have just got myself an HTC touch (from an orange shop; their only one!) and my very first step was to decrease the Pagepool to 4Mb. Worked perfectly and now I have 51Mb of total Program RAM.

Incidentally, the models arriving at Orange Shops have:

ROM: 1.14.61.1 WWE

Hi Guys,

I have a HTC Touch in the post on the way to me as I type. I really wanted to try this trick on my new device as soon as it came through the door but I was scared I was going to brick it within the first 10mins of it's life! Soooo.............Ithought i'd have a little practice..........on my MDA Vario (Original T-mob WM5 rom) :P I wasn't to worried about it going wrong as I kinda new I could reflash back to the original rom again. Anyway guess what......? It worked! The default pagepool size on the vario is 12MB so I decided to change it to 6MB and after a succesful reflash and reset my program mem has now jumped from 25MB to 31MB! Testing for misbehaviour is underway but it seems OK!

Its amazing how much confidence a few beers can give you! Yes I did this half cut! :) I'll be sober when I try this with my new Touch though.

What a great trick Paul and thankyou for sharing it with us ;)

Much Love

C x
