HTC Wizard WM5 ROM ported to Blue Angel devices

Mamaich has recently ported the WM5 ROM from the HTC Wizard to our BA devices - original thread can be found here.

Please note: This ROM is BETA and has many bugs, you can possibly screw up your device and such. But don't be too scared, you can go back to the official ROM if you follow the safer instructions here.

Here are the advantages and features of the new ROM:

  1. Speed: This ROM is faster than any previous ones
  2. Stability: This ROM seems to be more stable than the previous ones
  3. Working MMS client
  4. Midi and MP3 ringtone support (MP3 works for some ppl, and does not work for some... for me, it does work)
  5. DirectX mobile/Direct3D mobile (xscale-optimized 3D driver)
  6. Built-in cyberon voice-dial
  7. Wizard's battery indicator, device lock on today
  8. Some cosmetic changes
  9. Midlet Manager (untested)
  10. New look in cleartype - If you turn on cleartype, the fonts will look, well, different... personally I like it

Here are the current, unsolved bugs of this ROM so far:

  1. Bluetooth disconnect bug is still there, profiles are not tested, and may be broken.
  2. The device cannot be used as an IR/USB modem.
  3. Some file associations are broken, for example PNG files cannot be viewed. This would be fixed later.
  4. SIM toolkit is not working.
  5. Hardware keyboard is still lagging (and/or repeating), though it seems to be better now
  6. Voice Command BT Headset Dial (by renaming voicecmd.exe to sddialer.exe) does not work

Installation instructions

  1. Read This for resizing your storage to 60 MB (step 6)
  2. Download the ROM from here
  3. Download GetDeviceData. Copy to your device, run it, then copy \Windows\DeviceData.txt to your PC.
  4. Download EditFix.bat and XDA3NbfTool. Patch your ROM with the data in DeviceData.txt -- read EditFix.bat for the how-to. (if you are only updating nk.nbf, you may see ms_.nbf: No such file or directory, or radio_.nbf: No such file or directory - that is OK)
  5. Create "EXTROM" foder on your storage card, copy there the contents of EXTROM folder from this archive. The full name of this directory on your device should be "\Storage Card\EXTROM".
  6. Put your device into bootloader mode (How-to here). It is not always necessary, but some users used to have problems with upgrading if they did not enter the bootloder mode manually.
  7. Flash the ROM.
    • If your device is not recognized, make sure you use a fresh Windows XP SP2 or Windows 2000 SP4 installation with Active Sync 4.1.
    • Removing the SD Card may help, too
  8. Do a WM5 hard reset. (How-to here)
  9. Boot. During the first boot the CAB-files from "EXTROM" folder would be installed. They are unsigned, so you should press "yes" when asked, and install them to the default folder. This process would be silent on newer builds of this ROM.

Note for modifying the EXTROM folder:

All CAB-files should have read-only attribute set. Otherwise they would be deleted after installation. This would be fixed in the future releases. And Config.txt is renamed to Cfg.txt.

CAB files:

  • PROVXMLs.CAB - must be always installed, contains default registry settings for network connections.
  • Missing-Files.CAB - must be always installed. Wizard's ROM is larger than ours, so several files had to be removed and placed to this CAB.
  • Buttons_Fix.CAB - old hotkeys fix, forgot to integrate it into ROM.
  • Default_CAB-shortcut-CDL-08Sep05.CAB
  • Default_SmartDialing_enable_0915_signed.CAB - these 4 are from original Wizard's ROM.

Solution to bugs

"OK" hardware button is mapped to "Record" and this cannot be changed. Would investigate this.

For me, it is different: When I re-map it in "Buttons", no matter for what i remap it, it always mapped to Voice dial.

just remove registry entry LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\OEM\VoiceCommand to have it fixed. Additionaly you can remove the sddaemon shortcut from \windows\startup folder

There is no camera in this ROM

Install the Camera patch

File system speed up registry tweaks are not in the ROM

Install the file from here, then turn off your device for 10-15 secs and do a softreset.

Phone settings are not there in the Control Panel

Get a Registry Editor such as TascalRegedit, then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Phone, and change the name of "Redirect" to something else. Then turn off your device for 10-15 seconds, and press soft reset (this makes sure, that your edited registry settings are saved)

GPS settings are not there in the Control Panel

Get a Registry Editor such as TascalRegedit, then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\GPS Settings, and change the name of "Redirect" to something else (I used "No_Redirect"). Then turn off your device for 10-15 seconds and press soft reset (this makes sure that your edited registry settings are saved).

Pocket MSN Fix

Install the file from here, then turn off your device for 10-15 secs and do a softreset.

Music playback issues

Install the file from here, then turn off your device for 10-15 secs and do a softreset. It is recommended to use GSPlayer for playback.

Picture and Video Application fix (will fix pictures in contact too)

delete "[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\ChoosePicture\Browser Helper Objects]" and "[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Pictures\Browser Helper Objects]" (suggested by mamaich)
