WM5 Patches and Change Log
- This Page was copied from Mamaich Post under this Thread
- All Patches have been written based on the following WM5 File patched_2K5_no_check_for_signed_modules.rar, which is part of the How to upgrade to the WM5 5.1.1700 build 14343 ROM
- mamaich: "It is very annoying that OS checks the digital signature of all DLL/EXE files. I've uploaded a patched version that does not do that to patched_2K5_no_check_for_signed_modules.rar on FTP. It is nk.nbf file, replace the original file with it and reflash the device. This ROM version works a bit faster."
- All CAB files downloaded here will only work on the above patched ROM!
- They work on this WM5 5.1.170 build 14343 Rom Patch V3.1 with Extended Rom Rom too.
- After editing the registry you need to power off your device, wait several seconds (about 15) and soft reset. Otherwise changes would be lost!
- Download files based on link.
- Extract Cab file out of download.
- Copy to your Device.
- Execute by tapping on Cab File with filemanager.
- When you install CAB file and it asks you to reboot device - don't do this!
- Power down your device, wait a bit, power on and then reboot. Otherwise registry would not be updated.
- BTW Downloaded Files files may uninstall incorrectly.
Things to do with on your device
- Disable most sounds
- Disable error reporting on Control Panel
Start -> Settings -> Tab:System -> Error Reporting -> Disable error reporting -> ok
(1) Missing files and Registery entries
- Finally I've managed to make a backlight fix, I've taken FrontLight.Dll from 1.40 ROM and made a CAB-file that installs it and makes necessary registry changes. This CAB also contains registry fixes and missing EXE files.
- Added STK.exe and 2 bluetooth files provided by ramram (today icon and bt settings). STK is not working yet.
Current Version ba_wm5_fix_v4.rar
(2) Button Behavior Fix
- I don't like the default behavior of hardware buttons - the leftmost and rightmost are mapped to softkeys. I've attached the fix that restores the WM2003 behavior. Previous version was not working.
Current Version Buttons_Fix_v2.rar
(3) Camera fix Only for Users of a BA device with a Camera PH20B
- Attached the camera fix CAB. It is taken from old ROM and is not fully compatible with WM5.
Current Version Camera2K5_v1.rar
(4) Sound Fix Only for Users of a BA device with no Camera PH20B1
- dynastykai and rschell posted here that deleting hklm\drivers\builtin\camera and cameradriver registry keys would fix sound problems under SX66. I've attached a CAB file that would remove these keys
Current Version remove_camera_reg_v1.rar
(5) Album and MIDI ringtone support
- ramram made a CAB with album and MIDI ringtone support
Current Version Album with midi.rar
- It shows bluetooth headset mode on today screen.
Current Version Headset_Today.rar
(7) Wifi Fix
- brn2prgrm found a fix for WiFi connection dropping on resume from standby
Thread Current Version ba_wifi_fix.rar
- Nosound Fix. Nosound_Fix.rar
- Battery Drain Fix, mycpl.rar
- systemupd.cab (mamaich: "this file is not needed. It causes crashes at random places.")
