Actually, I can't confirm it. My omnia is quietly waiting as a backup phone just in case my android breaks. I read this thread by chance when I installed Tapatalk, so I thought I'd answer. The i900 was a great phone. I don't feel the same about WinMo. Too bad the AndrOmnia project didn't make it!

Yeah man, too bad it didn't make it. But even tho i own Galaxy S3, my primary phone is still Omnia i900. I don't know, I kinda believe winmo more than ISC Android. Or maybe its the habit i have with Omnia i900. Omnia i900 for sure its a great phone and still is, knowing how many people around the world still using it. Omnia i900 with the right combination of apps, tweaks and SPB Mobile Shell 3.5.5, can be reborn as a great smartphone (which is. after all its PPC). Knowing this, I made this thread, cuz there are still people around the world that are still searching for this apps (latest versions), so when I have them on the hard disk, why not share it, right? :)

Cheers mate :)

I honestly don't know if the link I found for you will work, but you asked for a specific version, so there you have it. I used to have Skype on my omnia and it worked. I just don't remember which version it was. Anyway, sorry if I wasn't helpful.
Boris, I kept my omnia for three years and I was happy to use it again when I had to send my android for repairs. It was and still is a great phone for everyday use. On the other hand, it is also true that using wifi drains its battery too fast and browsing the internet is a pain when compared to a modern device. There is no Viber available and Skype doesn't suppoft video calls. The cheapest android nowdays can do all that easily.
I actually installed android on a friend's HTC HD2 and he's still using that! Too bad I couldn't do the same on the omnia.
Still, it's good that you keep this thread. I'm sure a lot of people benefit. I too get nostalgic from time to time! Thanks.

Willy, google is your best friend. try searching here on MoDaCo or on xda-developers forum. Search for keyword like: iphone icons for windows mobile. If you found some, than Omnia i900 uses icons (png images) with 96dpi, everything above will be messy or not showing at all, so you have to scale them down to 96dpi.
I didn't quite understand you, you are searching for one specific icon or set of iPhone look-a-like icons? Can you provide us with a screenshots of your Omnia i900, just so we have a clear clue what are you looking for and we might help you. Thanks
Cheers.

To be honest, I don't know anything about iPhone icons. What I do know is that high resolution icons consume more RAM and make the phone slower. That's why I always used the native iconset even with themed front ends.

Hi Boris,

i'm currently using ockEclipse WM6.5 build 23118 ROM and it is somehow very slow i feel.
Which ROM are you using / do you recommend regarding speed?

Thanks.

Did you download from my 4Shared folder or somewhere else? Do you use ockEclipse 23118 or ockEclipse 23118 Refreshed?
All ROMs I uploaded on my 4Shared folder are chosen by my criteria and that means they are all the best by my experience.
The criteria how I choose ROMS are:
- Stability
- Performance
- Speed
- Design
- Battery Life
So that means whatever ROM you choose from my 4Shared folder you won't do a mistake, they are all the best roms out there for Omnia i900.
About your problem, did you do this steps:
- Before you flash the rom, did you do a hard reset of your Omnia i900?
- After flashing (considering that flashing went well) Have you did 2-3 hard resets? (this is crucial for removing leftovers from the previous roms, so you won't have conflicts with the files from the new rom)
- If you haven't did 2-3 hard resets after flashing the new rom, please do it now, I will suggest 2 hard resets one after another, do not set anything like touch screen calibration, time, date etc, you can do that after those 2 hard resets.

Do this and let me know how did go.
I'm currently using Steff's 29020 Lite with SPB Mobile Shell 3.5.5

i was using the original (non-refreshed) rom from ock's thread here for some years.
i was doing no hard resets.

so now i flashed to ock Premium 29005 (i dont like the manila home screen) and made two hard resets.

not sure if it is much better - probably just already used to have better response with my laptop with ssd and dual-core android tablet...

thanks

Hi guys, I am very happy I found this thread and thankful to all the people who worked on all these stuff...

I got this Omnia phone and I want to use the full Internet experience (Flash), I've searched the forums, but I can't get a full answer. And I see that all you here are using Omnias.

So, PLEASE, is these anyone who can explain HOW TO GET IT TO WORK on my Omnia, I found these threads:

http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?p=3495932

http://www.modaco.co..._60#entry991162

But, it is pretty hard for me. Can someone explain these methods in a tutorial, or probably there is another method to get flash to work on Omnia, cause these here are old.

I would really appreciate if someone will answer.

Thank you.

I've read on some other thread that you have WM 6.1 on your omnia. If thats the case you need to flash it with a WM6.5.x rom. Do not ask for step by step of how to flash a new rom cuz there are lots of tutorials of how to do it here and on xda-developers. Do a research.
Second of all, latest Opera versions for Omnia i900 are Opera Mini 5.1 and Opera Mobile 10 (I use Opera Mini 5.1 and I am very pleased).
There is no full experience on Omnia i900, those are just work-arounds. Thats usually with Opera Mobile 10, you cannot do that with Opera Mini 5.1. Then you have to install .NET 3.5 (all custom WM 6.5.x roms for Omnia have that already cooked in, and one more thing, Latest WM for Omnia i900 is WM 6.1, there is no official WM 6.5.x for Omnia, those are ported ROMs for Omnia i900)
I personally don't use those work-arounds for flash working inside the browser Opera Mobile 10, cuz that drains RAM a lot and cause your phone to work slow. On the other hand I use Opera Mini 5.1 and whenever I click some link on youtube to watch it or other similar sites, it opens in the builted in Windows Media Player, thats almost like having video worked inside the browser. I am satisfied with that.
I can see that you are not familiar with flashing roms, editing registry in the rom or do any other tweak. So my recommendation to you is DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR TO, cuz that way you will screw up something and you will have to do a hard reset and maybe lose valuable data. Those tweaks are for power users like me who know how to do that. If you want to become one of us, then i suggest you do a lots of reading on forums like this one, xda-developers, pocketnow, or others.
Hope this helped you to see things from other angle.

P.S. Noone will give you step by step tutorial cuz everything that is connected to WM or hpones using WM is already discussed on already mentioned forums, you just have to do your homework and do some serious reading. :)

Thank you very much for your insight. I really appreciate. But the thing is that these 2 guys on the links that I posted have done it, they did on wm 6.1 and it worked, and it should be complicated as I understand. I just hoped that someone could explain a little bit better. For example this one:

"I was able to upgrade my Opera Mobile 9.5 on my omnia to flashlite 3.1, i am not sure if this is a problem with other phones but it was with the omnia.

What I found was that after installing Flashlite 3.1 opera mobile plugin settings did not update to the appropriate registry key.

I found that the plugin config for opera is under the folder Application Data/opera9XXX and the file is axobjects.ini

Copy this file to your desktop and modify the CLSID registry key under [Shockwave Flash] to match the registry key for flashlite 3.1

This key can be found by using a .CAB editor like WinCE or by searching the registry \HKCR\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash\CLSID

**This does not work with the current beta available on opera.com but works with pre-installed versions.**

I hope this is of some help to people!"

Where can I find the flashlite 3.1 registry? and some over questions.

But, are you saying that there is no way to use WM 6.1 and to have a browser that works fine flash or even that works with opera mini 5.1 that would open videos in windows media player? Do I need WM 6.5 to be able to surf flash content? I really don't to flash another ROM, I like as it is. I just want to view websites normally.
What if I install .NET 35 on WM 6.1 ?

And this method:

"So, what I did was to install opera 9 to My storage but copied all the install to win folder, and also application data/opera9 what was necessery, did an opera.ini file that points to the right places, especially to my storage, and also edited the axobjets.ini to point to FL3.1 clsid that I found in registry, then copied this ini to app data/opera9. BANG! Everything works, Youtube, etc. Wonderfull... If anyone needs files, help, I'll be glad to help. Thanx s0cks, and the link above, I'd never-ever find the right place for shockwave registry settings for opera...."

How to do a .ini file that points somewhere? and other question...
I am sorry, but I just want to make it work on WM 6.1 with tweaks and it is not a problem if it eats a little of ram, I have nothing else installed on my phone.

Thanks a lot.

Dude, you haven't read or understand anything what I write you in the previous post, didn't you?
yes, you can install .NET 3.5 cuz its newer and better than 3.1, Also they did it with Opera Mobile 9.5 (which came preinstall on stock WM6.1).
To explain to you how to do the tweaks and editing registry I have to write a whole 200 pages tutorial so you can learn it. Everything you need is answered on this forums and xda-developers, be a good boy, do your research like we did it few years ago. Whatever you do, you will do it on your own risk. And in case you didn't noticed, that post is like 3 and a half years ago. I would really recommend flashing a new WM 6.5.x rom cuz that way you will have so much more space in the Device memory and so much more RAM than now you have on your stock WM 6.1 and not to mention that UI and menues are way much more touch friendly or should I say stylus free, you will not have to use stylus anymore. Choose whatever ROM you want from my list in the first post of this thread, they are all tested on my Omnia and all are the best for Omnia i900. :)

OK, thanks a lot and sorry...now I understand. I will flash it with a WM 6.5 ROM. Can you recommend a ROM from your list? I don't want it spicy or with a lot programs that I don't need. Just the basics so that I can add later what I want.

Maybe this one: Steff195's 29020 V2 Normal (for Windows XP) though I have WIN7 64 installed on my computer.

Thanks

Yes. thats the ROM I have it now on my Omnia i900, but mine is Lite, not Normal. No big difference. Whatever ROM you choose from my list, you won't be mistaken. Now, since you have Win 7, you need to search: Flashing WM Rom on Windows vista or 7, its the same. You have it here on Modaco threads with step by step instructions. just search it.

Hi flashed it finally, it went good, the system is stable, but I still can't open flash based sites on Opera Mobile 10...I installed Flash Lite 3.1, .NET 3.7 and it doesn't work...I am so dissapointed, I think I'm giving up.

Thank you for your help and sorry to bother :)

That trick can work on some builds of Omnia, not all. But what doesn't come native you can make it by every cause to work it. I don't know why are you so disappointed in that. I am not. Whenever I go to Opera Mini 5.1 for PPC (yes i use that cuz its faster and better than Opera Mobile 10), I click on some video link and the video opens right away in builded Windows Media Player. In my opinion thats better solution than watch the video inside the browser, Omnia i900 doesn't have that big screen to watch it that way.
By the way John, check you email, I did send you the files you wanted!

What about Android for Omnia i900 ???

Android for Omnia i900 or better known as Andromnia is still beta project but i highly doubt that it will be continued. Most of the things works, but some of the crucial things still doesn't works and it drains the battery very fast. So this Android for Omnia is kind of a "show off" thing, not to be used on a daily bases. Search on google for Andorid for Omnia and the right link will popup in the first results.
