Perfect! This now the device that I wanted (to replace my well worn Wizard). 10Mb free after boot before, now 19.9. Using the 6Mb page pool option

I was concerned at first that my offset was pretty significantly different then yours so I triple checked, did it the change manually then also used the patch executable to double check them against each other before rewriting the ROM.

Why TMO USA shipped them with the page pool set this high I'll never know, but on my device, after a day or two of use I couldn't even open the camera (not enough memory) even with no other applications open at all. The only way to get the camera app to launch was to soft reset, ugh.

Thanks!!!!

Great guide !

I pushed my Free-Mem up to 26,88 MB on my O2 XDA Terra (HTC Herald). :)
I've installed on top of the clean WM6:
SKTools (Storage Card)
Extended System OneBridge
Microsoft Reader (Storage Card)
SPB GPRS Monitor
ICQ (Storage Card)
O2 Comcenter

It's incredible. I reduced the pagepool via this guide to 4 MB and used SKTools to optimize the system.
The system is running well and stable. And i think it's running a little bit faster than before.

So, thanks for your work paul.

Successfully changed on a HTC P3450 a moment ago. Reading of about 50mb took around 2 minutes and flashing more than 5min.. what a nailbiter.. man!!!

Anyway, i changed the pool to 4 mb from 12mb and the device went from 15,5mb free RAM to 27,32mb free :)
The offset in my P4350 was 003EF8BC.

Thans for the guide!

I used your WIng patch exe file and successfully updated the pagepool.
Recommendation for users: while writing, please try to close all other apps in desktop. It took me about 20 mins becoz i was running many apps.

Paul Thanks for coming up with such a great patch!!

Hello all. First time poster. I found this thread at xda-developers.com and couldn't resist. So I did it before I read the rest of the thread and found the auto patchers. I thought I had done everything to spec, but alas my Wing starts up gets to the Windows Mobile screen and then just reboots and it keeps doing so.

So I guess I bricked my phone. Should I just bring it in for repairs or warranty exchange?

Thanks.

ryceone, yep, you've broken something somewhere :)

Your only option is to send it in for repair, or wait for a Wing RUU (Rom Update) to appear.

Step 3: Extract the ROM from your device

We're now going to extract the ROM from your device. This is a completely safe operation, so don't panic yet :) Take the following steps...

- Ensure device is connected to PC and Activesync'd / WMDC'd
- Open a command prompt at your new directory
- Type 'pdocread -l' (minus the quotes of course)

Question : how do i open a command prompt ?

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"? :)

Yes, but I'm still hoping a Wing RUU surfaces to take the risk away from going the full monty :)
