Re: Verizon HTC Touch Pro - 6.5 ROM?

With Energy ROM, make sure you are putting the pagepool to 12MB before flashing. I hear this is the best pagepool size for the Verizon TP. I think it's set to 20MB by default on most of the Energy ROMs.

Google pagepool changer site:forum.ppcgeeks.com and you should find it if you don't already have it.

Appreciate any answers! I'll post any successful ROMs I cook -- I am sure there are a lot of folks in the same boat as us (Verizon 6850 users).
It's in the CDMA Upgrade Section.
try this one it is TMartin's newest update to Cal's Kitchen...
I am currently using the one he relased before that.

Re: Verizon HTC Touch Pro - 6.5 ROM?

Hey Guy's I really would love to know just how much memory is left after starting Touch Flow on the stock Verizon Rom? I am begining to thing the reason that myphone has had to be reset soooo many times is because it simply does not have enogh memory to egt the job done.End of story. Is this the case? If so what's the fix? They (Big Red) have NO CLUE...Tanks

Re: Verizon HTC Touch Pro - 6.5 ROM?

About 50-55% memory used with standard interface, 75%-80% with TF3D enabled.

I also would like to get a WM6.5 ROM with no more than 60% memory used on a clean boot. As well as working MMS and YouTube.

Currently, I got the Baseline ROM because it is the only one so far that leaves more than 20 MB of RAM free (45-55 MB) and has working MMS configurable. But it doesn't have YouTube integrated, and getting it working is rather difficult. Energy has MMS and YouTube, but even with everything trimmed down, it has 22 MB of RAM free on a clean start.

Any recommendations fo good 6.5 ROMs that run well on Verizon HTC Touch Pro?
since you and I are both on vzw I have to flash "skinned" roms (or roms that have very little in the build) Im havign great luck with Copper Rom and NFSFans 6.5 rom. After all the apps I want are installed and contacts are placed back on the phone, I am currently at...43.70mb of free memory.

Verizon TP: 192MB
Program Memory: 100.02 MB
In Use: 95.53MB (this is right after a soft reset)
Free: 4.49MB

I get a "Memory Critically Low" message about every 2 minutes, or every time I try to call, email, text, etc.

The funny thing is usually his ROMs leave me with about 145M of Program Memory, so I don't understand what happened with the last few that he decided needed to be much larger. Or maybe I am doing something wrong, I won't rule out that possibility.
when you look at the .nbh memory, what I always try to do is choose one that has the least amount of memory. The current one I loved but didnt have enough memory on my phone to even reinstall my contacts. Its not his fault whatsoever and I doubt you are doing naything wrong since I have to watch every rom I download and make sure it isnt loaded since that will leave me with only 4mb of free space...apparently WM doesnt like to run on anything less then 20mb (from my experience) you can blame VZW for giving us the gimped version of an otherwise great device.

one last thing...ive found its better to use Titanium version since manilia/sense takes up more memory on the phone

Re: Verizon HTC Touch Pro - 6.5 ROM?

As a basic guideline you want to build a rom that leaves you in the 50% area of free memory after customization.

If you find your around 60% try reduing the pagepool (you can go as low as 4 on PP)
HTC Sense I have noticed takes up a lot more RAM than the old Manila...Lots of reasons for this like way more graphics (Weather anims, Dialer Skins, VGA Resizer daemons for the dialer)

This is why people are having so many RAM issues reently on VZW....
You really have to strip out as much as possible from the ROM and try to store as much as possible on the Storage card....

Thanks! I'll try to get my hands dirty and give it a shot.

I have been using NFSFAN's ROM with Titanium. I start out with 48MB free. It mostly works -- I do run cleanRAM quite often though...

Well remember what you have available as RAM after a flash is going to get reduced over time and usage because most operations like email and Web browsing store the data from those activities on the device!

Clean Ram will help short term but there is a point of no return where a hard reset is needed to clean things properly.

You can extend the lifetime between hard resets by configuring email and Opera to save it's data onto the storage card.

Email can be configured to use Storage card in the Accounts control panel.
For Opera tweaks type opera:config into your browser and change the user prefs - Directory4 from windows/opera/etc to storage card/opera/etc
