Feedback is always appreciated!!!

If you want to know how to install ROM on you omnia please check Sector's guide

(flashing ROM is risky and you may brick your phone if you dont do it correctly - please keep that in mind).

I never had an issue so far but Murphy's law is clear - hence the warning.

Once installed (post reboot following XDA_UC execution), please select Windows Phone 7 Metro theme
Start >> Settings >> Home

Download v6.0 ROM here

Sys 29020 with DXID1 Drivers, Windows CE: 5.2 Build 6212/3?? (April, 2011)

Sys 23699 - LG, Windows CE: 5.2 Build 4600 (Nov 04, 2010 3:44:02 PM)

Sys 29017, Windows CE: 5.2 Build 6211 (Jan 26, 2011 9:44:01)

Sys 29007 - Unknown, Windows CE: 5.2 Build 6207 (Sep 23 2010 3:48:35 PM)

if you would like to try one of the stable phone parts, try JJIA1 - considered one of the most stable and balanced performing phone part (they control the signal quality etc)
CPU is anyways explicitly controlled in the ROMs

Users of previous ROMs can download the updates by dowloading individual cabs

Opera link fix cab

XCPUScalar optimisation - CPUAutoload

Titanium Metro

2 x square icons start menu 3 x hex icons start menu

LZX compression is used at it saves about 10 Megs difference while being 1-4% slower than XPR.

LG sys 236xx is my personal favourite. It is very stable and very fast. Battery usage is much better. If you have issues with wifi, please try 290xx.

I have included XCPUScalar with auto load (explicit control by xcpuscalar rather than using built in speedstep) - Makes it snappier.
If you refer to run at a fix speed. run xcpuscalar from start menu and uncheck auto load (click end call to go to home screen).
If you want to view current speed, you can enable view taskbar CPU meter. (it only display partially as this app was designed for wm5 and is there for not adapted to slim taskbar

XCPUScalar 3.03
XDA_UC
FTouchSL 2.10 - lite
Scroll engine
Torchbutton
nueSIPDefault (Start Menu >> Utilities, ensure your keyboard preference is maintained on reboot)

Apps that can be removed:
CleanRAM
Slide2Shutdown
WM7 dialer

Omnia Apps:
Samsung MMS
Media Album
FM Radio
Volume Control (Black)
Samsung Keyboards
Opera

Other:
Office 2010
Windows Live
Microsoft MyPhone
Microsoft Marketplace
CleanTemp
Metro Titanium
WM7 like Startup and Shutdown animation
My WM7 Metro Titanium & Start Menu design & SMS Skin
WM7 Metro theme

Acknowledgements:
I could not have done without the work of the following :
OCK - for his long continued ROM building work. your's was the first ever i900 ROM i used.
Yonn - for uploading his copy of oskitchen with Ext and Projects to get people like me onboard and building excellent ROMs.
nickschot (http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=663064) - for the lovely Windows Phone 7 theme
Cendaryn (http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=651045) for animated bootscreen and welcome head. Might take icons next time around
DFT - for their hard work on getting the ROMs from emulator builds

Everyone trying it and giving me feedback

that just shows how much i know about everyone who contributes :lol:

since i was having issues, i did a search for 236 in the forum and didn't find any joy :) eventually managed to get a build working. my personal impression is that it is slightly faster but that could be just me :)

time problem. How do I show the correct time.


strange haven't seen that one.
Host displays time in HH:mm format

Can you check Time setting in System >> Regional Settings ?

Also make sure your region is set correctly under Time tab of Clocks and Alarms

Does the problem persist if you restart Host app ?

Can you try restarting the device ?

Let me know how it goes

Same problem here, the time and battery level indicators always remains the same.
Exactly shows the time and battery level of the moment the host loads, and never updates again.
It's a very nice rom and, so far, I'm happy with it.

I always had this problem. did not solve.maybe you can solve this problem. I hope.

rom in general very successful. fast and stable. sensitivity of the screen is beautiful. not close automatically using a host interface for the first time.
