Developer needed: Custom WM 6.x ROM for HTC HD


I am posting a simple project with a moderate budget in hopes that a Freelancer would be willing to take it on.

This project would be a good opportunity for any new freelancer hoping to establish a positive credible reputation on the Freelancer website, which may lead to more significant projects from other employers in the future. As well, it is a project that an established freelancer can take on for some quick income.

My project is to build a custom ROM for my unlocked Windows Mobile 6.1 HTC Touch HD T8282 (Blackstone), for personal use.

The ROM will incorporate different aspects of the following WM HTC phones:

- HTC Touch Diamond P3700 (Rogers – Canada)

- HTC Touch Pro (Raphael) T7272

- HTC Touch HD (Blackstone) T8282 & T8285 (Telstra)

- HTC Touch Diamond 2 (Topaz) T5353

- HTC Touch Pro 2 (Rhodium) T7373

- HTC Touch HD 2 (Leo) T8585

I have done research on the XDA Developers website, and have the specifications I would like the ROM to include. Also, I have saved relevant “threads” which link to files and examples which I will upload to the project once accepted. I have also downloaded some of the key files (WM 6.1 cabs) and HD updates that I will upload as well once accepted.

I have not included updates of other HTC models (but can be found on the (HTC Worldwide site - support)

I have not included extracted oem cab files from the various HTC model stock roms.

I have not used the many other “developer” sites – the amount of information is over-whelming.

Please refer to the following YouTube link by user starbase64 (German) for a general idea of what I would like to accomplish:

As I do not have a programming background, I am not able to create the ROM myself, and that is why I must outsource my project. There may be additional components that are required, that I am not aware of, which I will defer to the more knowledgeable freelancer.

Currently, the shipped HTC Touch HD ROM does not support North American (Canada – Rogers) 3G speed (EDGE is max), whereas the Australian Telstra version (T8285) does support the same frequencies as North America. As all other specifications on both HD versions (’82 & ’85) are identical, I assume that the radio can be successfully switched, though I have not found a thread on the XDA Developer site showing so. This may not even be possible (therefore I defer to the more knowledgeable freelancer).

Also, as the HTC Touch HD T8282 is a Windows Mobile 6.1 phone, I would like to upgrade to WM 6.5.3 (or 6.5.5) while retaining the basic WM 6.1 GUI (not WM 6.5.x GUI), as I prefer the HTC TFlo3D shell GUI (again I defer to the more knowledgeable freelancer).

Finally, the “new” HTC Touch HD will require a compatible “HardSPL” (for flashing), which would the Freelancer’s responsibility to include in the project submission upon completion.

Communication for clarification/issues/concerns/modifications/etc... can be started once a willing freelancer has been accepted.
