    Do you really mean Hard Reset, as you only need to softreset.

    How did you repartition the ROM partition?

    Yes, I did mean hard reset. This was to verify that the apps in ROM were indeed removed as the hard reset erases all files on the Treo and replaces them with ones from the custom ROM. There is more to it than that, but that is the short version.

    There is more to it than just resizing the ROM partition, you have to shrink the size of your custom ROM to be smaller than the size of the ROM partition - otherwise it won't fit and you will get resets. The ROM partition size is hard coded in a file called RomUpdaterApp.prc. The three available ROM partition sizes are 7.1, 8.4, and 9.8MB. The sizes have been used in RomUpdaterApp files from previous GSM and CDMA software updates.

    My Verizon 650 1.04 had a partition size of 8.4MB. When I deleted the files mentioned above, my custom ROM size was small enough that I could now fit the files in the 7.1MB partition. By doing this, I did two things - 1) added 1.3MB to the free RAM for storing files and 2) added ~3MB to the dbCache which can help the OS run faster (a bit) and with more stability. The 3MB figure comes from the uncompressed size of all the files that I deleted from the ROM.

    Here is the ROM partition thread. Be sure to read all of the referenced threads, as well:

    I added syncmedia alone. I still could not sync.
    I added filesync alone. I still could not sync.
    I added filesync, syncmedia, and syszlib. Now, I could sync. I will do some more testing and figure out which combination of these three files is important.
    Syncmedia was the only one I had in my ROM.

    Thanks for the info.

    I've not heard of anyone doing a hard reset in relationship with the New ROM Tool. Surely you could just use Fileprog to see what is in ROM without having to do a hard reset.

    Yes I'm aware of the different RomUpdaterApp.prc sizes, but as you had not mentioned the fact that you had done this, using the SD method I assume, I just wanted to check the facts.

    I've read most of the ROM threads both here and on TreoCentral.

    It's great to have this tool now

    BTW my treo custom ROM is about the same as yours.

    I've also gained about 3mb of dbcache, which has made my Treo a lot more stable.

    I ought to go for the 7.1 partition as well, but I'm not brave enough

    So full marks to you for having a go

    What carrier/version is your Treo?

    It was on Orange, but I'm now running the ENA 1.20 update

    James, looks like you're right. The SyncMedia.prc alone was what I needed to restore Hotsyncing. Thanks, again!

    If you are Running ENA There is a ROM out there that via SD updater will do it for you. If interested.

    I might be getting it wrong, but I don't see the point of gaining that extra few mb of Storage Heap, in my case.

    Most of my apps are run off SD card, so I've got plenty of Free memory.

    But by cutting down my ROM, I've got 14mb of NVFS DB Cache, which helps most with the few fussy apps, like Satnav.

    So if I'm happy to run all that I can off an SD card, and that leaves plenty of room for those few apps that can not be run from a SD card, I don't really need that extra space from doing a re-partition.

    Might seem a strange attitude, but I'm happy with the ROM tool, but the SD method is a bit more risky ?

    If you're happy no need to mess with it. I was just offering if you worried about building it. It is more risky than the RomTool. It's your Treo and I say keep how you like it. If you want something different then try to do that.

    Perhaps I would like to hear more

    It's just that I have read the thread about building a version for the SD card method, which included having to use .JAR ( or something) files to extract the required files to add to the SD card, and I was worried that I might build it wrong and then brick my Treo.

    Are you saying that I can download a prebuilt set of files, which I then only need to add to a SD card and run ?

    Cheers

    Yes on the prebuilt.

    So it avoids the T3.jar requirement.

    I assume it contains a certain custom or standard ROM as well, which I can then replace with my own custom, after the partition has been done?

    Could you point me in the right direct

    it is everything minus ace-palmos.zip and ace-palmos.zip.md5. You add that then run it.

    Ah, that's easy then, just use the ROM Tool to build the 2 ace files and off you go.

    OK, I'll give it a go. Cheers

    Thanks

    I have printed out your post#323, so when I'm at my other pc tomorrow that has the ROM Tool on it I will give it a go.

    I'm interested if you ever got this to work for you? Jeesh, You'd think one could find the appropriate hacked ROM, just ready for you to add the apps of your choice then sync with your phone. I have a verizon 650 as well
