after u turned location on, did you go into google maps and click "use gps?"




yes, after further tweaking I thought I should report that with the settings in googlemaps managed by windows and about 30 minutes of being outside I can get a lock, unfortunately this is everytime I go to get a GPS lock.

I never thanked you for this, This is my first time flashing a ROM that is custom with wm 6.5, I really did underestimate it, but it turned out great, so my brother wanted me to flash his omnia too haha, GREAT WORK! it works! the wifi tethering thing was increadible! could never get the other one I had to work, so this really made the phone better, so thanks!
few notes though, the actual phone were you dial is not very responsive, and under setting, were you change input, I guess you are not able to change the keyboard if you know what I mean. But I love this flashing game now :)

I guess BW forgot about us now that he has moved onto the droid. No new rom to flash. I am definitely suffering from withdrawal. Guess I can't blame him, though.

Wolf, the WM7 Black is truly bad-ass, nice work! I'll be sendind you a few cases of Pepsi via Paypal. The Omnia i910 is like a whole new phone, and the touchscreen responds so much smoother and faster. Just wanted to post an alert on how to fix the Internet (Verizon Broadband) after this ROM upgrade, which a few others seemed to have run into. I saw you posted this fix elsewhere but it took a while to find.

After the ROM upgrade, if the Internet does not dial on the phone by default, go to Settings, Connections, Connections, and Add a new connection under My ISP or edit the existing one to make sure it is named "Broadband Access" and dials out to #777 with no user/pass. If the Connection is named VZW or some other custom name, it will not work.

I was considering upgrading to an Omnia II, but after getting this ROM mod, why bother? The old school Omnia used to be a bit sluggish but so far this thing finally gives an iPhone a run for the money, aside maybe from Mobile Safari still easier than Mobile IE.

Thanks for all the hard work man!!

Hey,

I am trying to reactivate my omnia with the custom rom on it. The HEX number on the back is worn so I can't see all the letters. Does anybody know how to access the service menu so I can look up the ESN or MEID?

Like what has been said many times before in this thread (and you apparently read it), just do a hard-reset right after the flash. No need to go through the details of all that.

...Mobile Safari still easier than Mobile IE.

Seriously? Mobile IE? Does anyone use that on their phone when Opera is so much the better app (and every WM phone worth anything these days ships with)? Even the latest builds of WM on other roms has a "new" IE and it still pales next to Opera.

Not coming down on you man, good that you're getting new life out of your phone and BW has one of the best roms out there, but you will be even happier with it when you use all the tools/features that it has and get the "best browsing experience you've ever had" :)

Enjoy your "new" phone though. Rock on.

Hey there BW,

Love the Rom. Awsome work. I've been messing around with it and was wondering if there is a registry key that holds the setting for the Text Messages from the home screen that I can change to use VITO SMS Chat. Can't stand the default text messaging app. I changed the registry key under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\Rai\:MSINBOX and changed out tmail to the file location for sms chat. This fixed the link for the messaging icon in the start menu. Also fixed the SMS link for favorite contacts when sending a text. Unfortunately though, under the notifications when I go to text messages, still popping the old app. Do you happen to know where this would be located?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,,,,Great Work...I"m a nubie but learning fast....A while back someone asked if you could add the XDA_UC to the storage card after you flashed....I obviously did not add it before hand...I created the folder after the fact and I put a pyro themed cab file in it and it would not install.

Additionally, can you add additional items to the today screen such as an excel link and what the heck is Clauncher. I'm sure it's state of the art but I must be in the wrong state of mind?
Thanks LOL

Flashed with the black rom and everything seems to be fine but when I re-entered my exhange server info to get my email from work it will not connect. I flashed it yesterday with one of your other roms and it worked fine...any idea...the phone and works fine but it's just the microsoft exchange that will not connect for me. I checked the setting 100 times and tried and tried but no go....Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

To my understanding XDA_UC only installs programs during the flashing process,its the final step if you left it do its thing.
Any new programs or themes have to be installed as normal.
I have only messed with clauncher a bit but I believe that will let you add a icon to any program to the today screen.
Maybe your next rom maybe one of the newer MD2 style rom? They have a program launch on the bottom slide bar.

;) :D

I was using this just fine... exchange included. Try doing a hard-reset and see if that fixes anything, other than that the only things I see as possibilities are a corrupted/failed flash (fix by re-flashing) or you missing a setting.

as for clauncher, yes... it is a program launching app. Best thing about stuff like this is if you don't know what it is, hit some buttons/change some settings and find out... what's the worst that could happen? :-D

Don't know if this has been a problem for anyone else, but I have not seen the question anywhere else on this thread, so here goes. After flashing to BW WM7 Blue (absolutely awesome ROM, by the way), I cannot specify the snooze time on any reminders or alarms as in older WM versions...is there a fix for this, or am I just stuck with a 10 minute snooze? Thanks in advance.

I figured the Exchange problem out...someone in this post did a post about not being able to access the internet and having to go to connections and entering Verizon Broadband and #777. The setting was already in there but I guess it was not activated. I clicked and held and chose one of the options which seemed to reactivate the broadband connection which solved my problem....Thanks

Regarding the themes I have the folder made and have a cab file...I put the cab file in the folder and did a soft reset and it didn't intall....any idea?

I have noticed this too, and figured that it was just built into the rom to be this way for simplicity. I would love to be able to use different lengths of snoozes, though. Is it a switch that can be flipped somewhere? Maybe the registry?

Hey there BW,

Does your ROM support the long_power.lnk?
Please advise. I found another shutdown program that I like and wanted to map it to the top button on the omnia i910 so when press and hold, this program starts up. Is this possible?

This new version is called WM7 Blue and WM7 Black. It is a little heavier than usual because of some of the itmes I have left in for more finger friendly access. This ROM is built with the SYS and XIP of 23064 which is the latest release of WM6.5.

I would like to thank the following people for helping me with my Roms:
Adrynalyne
bga7x
hartv427
Noonski

Please remember that you flash at your own risk and I am not responsible for any bad things that happen to your device.


How to flash:
You must flash to the CF03 ROM before flashing to this ROM.

Then:
Use UMDL and click on the PDA button. Browse to the location where you placed the bin file and click on open. The file will load. Once it is loaded click on Detect. Now turn your device off by holding the power button until you see the shutdown gif. Once your device is shutdown plug it in to your pc. Now turn your device back on by pressing and holding the power button. UMDL should detect your device and start loading the new ROM on to your device.

10-9-09: SYS and XIP updated to 23064, fixed appointment creation screen, new soft key buttons in black version.

10-4-09: New black version using m.carrolls PureBlackV3, New Autocalllocker version, LG Incite keyboard, fixed CLinks panel name, contacts from 23414, modded TM Carbon dialer for black version.

User Customization:

My ROM uses a user customization tool called XDA_UC created by Noonski. It will allow you to place your theme, tweaks, cabs and other files on your storage card and have them installed automatically after a flash or hard reset. To get a better idea of what I am talking about please see this thread over at XDA-Developers: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?p=3611692

These files will need to be put in a folder in the root of your storage card. The folder is called XDA_UC.

For your theme to be used you will need to rename it to My.tsk and place it in the XDA_UC folder. Then on first boot your theme will be used.

Cab file installation. If you want cabs to be installed to device memory the place them in the XDA_UC folder. These cabs will be installed silently and need no user interaction. If you want a cab file to be installed to your Storage card or My Storage then you will need to place cab file in XDA_UC/SD. Any cab files in this folder will auto launch but will ask you where to install them. After installation you will need to tap on OK and the next cab file installation will start.

Reg tweaks that you put in will need contain the following line at the top of the file "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00", a line space must be included at the end of the file. If you look at the XDA-Devlopers thread I linked above you will see more information about this.
Now that I have done this there are some changes to the startup procedure. Please note the changes so you do not have issues.

You no longer need to tap on the start menu to have the ROM finish loading. This will be done automatically for you. Wait for about 30 seconds or so and you will see a customization popup that will let you know that customization is starting. You can tap on the countdown number to start or just let it count down. This will install any items that you have in the XDA_UC folder.

If you have no XDA_UC folder you will still see the customization popup. Tap on the countdown or let it finish. It will finish installation of the items I have placed in the ROM.

Once this has finished a popup screen will appear letting you know that the customizations have finished. OK out of this screen and your device will soft reset to complete all installations.

Version 1 notes:
Like all newer versions of Windows Phone the OK/Close is broken in the Phone settings screen. You can slave a hard button to OK/Close or soft reset after changing your settings.
Known issues:
Please let me know if you have any problems.
