how can I replace a ROM file?

When I was on WM6.1 I was able to copy wavedev.dll into my windows folder "replacing" the ROM's version, and when I would reboot it would use the new file, but now I'm on WM6.5 and it won't let me or if it does when I reboot the ROM file is back and the one copied is no longer there. I have used Resco Explorer, GSFinder, and Total Commander, same results with all. Is there an app that will allow me to do this, or a registry entry to allow this? Anyone else having this problem?

Why do you want/need to change the ROM Version? It's there to ID what ROM you are using. If you are using WM 6.5 then the ROM version is located in a few different areas. But the only reason I can think of someone changing that is to get around what the chef put there or to take credit for the work. and yes there are registry entries that will make the changes. But why?

I want to replace a DLL file in the windows folder that is cooked into the ROM. Worked fine in 6.1. For some reason it doesn't seem to work in 6.5. Resco will allow me to do it, but after I reboot, the original file is there. Yes, it is possible to replace rom files, it doesn't actually overwrite them, but somehow tells the system to use the other one and ignore the rom one. Like I said, did this all the time on 6.1. Am trying to get call recording working. Or perhaps I just need to find another way, like tweak the audiopara.csv file? I can hear the other person, but they are VERY VERY LOW, and it's not recording through the mic the other person, because it picks them up even when I'm using the headphones.

Sadly there seems to be no one who really knows what is going on low level in the phone and drivers with call recording and finding good info is hard because there is so much conjecture on this as it is.

Now I see what you mean by "ROM version" Have you tried to do the following.
Find the file you want to replace and rename it like filenamebac.dll then copying your file that you are trying to transfer with the correct name. This should force Windows to use that file.
