    Post Verizon XV6700 Extended ROM CAB File Breakdown

    I've read a lot of useful information while browsing these forums, but I have yet to contribute anything. Well, spent some time doing a break down of what each of the CAB files in the Extended ROM for Verizon's XV6700 does. I haven't found anything in the forums that go into the XV6700's file too much.

    Hope ya find this information useful.

        ##374		EPST.exe ##374
        ##775		EPST.exe ##775
        #4357		EPST.exe #4357
        ##33284		FieldTrial.exe
        ##3328873		EPST.exe ##3328873

    Nice work. Thanks. Looks like maybe that wireless sync app can be deleted (for me), but not much else.

    Nice work. Thanks for taking the time.

    would you mind detailing what the following mean:

    # Disables Call Forwarding user settings
    # Disables Call Waiting user settings
    # Disables SMS user settings
    # Disables BC SMS user settings

    I saw these registry entries the other day and considered messing with them, but I wasn't home to back up my files in case i broke something. Just wondering what settings might be unlocked by enabling them. Anything useful?

    In the phone dialer app, when you click on Menu > Options... > Services tab.

    The items listed are what that references.
    Unaltered that list includes Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, SMS, BC SMS. With those items exposed you're able to change certain values to your personal taste. Like totally disabling Call Waiting if you wanted. Or setting up your Call Fowarding w/o having to dial Verizon's special numbers. etc.

    thats actually kind of what i figured, although I wasn't sure where some of the unlocked options would appear (Services tab, versus elsewhere). thanks for clarifying something that was actually pretty self explanatory. some folks would definitely have had a smart ass reply.

    thanks, going to explore now.

    None of this is listed under my services tab. Mine has only location setting, Voice Privacy, Network Service, TTY Mode, Time Sync, and alert. Why would mine be different?

    You don't see them because Verizon has hidden them. The different cab files in the extended ROM that Big_Rich has decomposed for us, customizes these options and then hide them. Thats why you don't see them.

    What is Verizon hiding from us by not showing these options. Why would I benefit from having access to these?

    also, Big Rich Says "unaltered" that lists includes..., so I thought that meant "from the factory"

    After editting the registry to enabling these services, I looked at what I could customize. The only useful one I found was being able to set up call forwarding. The SMS service only allowed me to change the SMS callback number, which i believe is configurable elsewhere as well. The BC SMS service only has an option to and enable/disable BC SMS. Similarly, the Call Waiting service only allows for enabling/disabling call waiting notification. I chose to go back to hiding them all except for call forwarding. If you didn't miss these options when you didn't know they were hidden, chances are you probably don't need to enable them now that you know can be made visible.

    sorry my question hijacked your thread Big_Rich.

    it does mean from the factory. When your phone is hard reset, it goes back to factory settings, and then immediately upon loading the first time, the cabs in the ext ROM (given above) run and install software or edit/hide settings as Big_Rich outlined. HTC makes this phone, different carriers choose to sell it, and they make customizations to the interface according to how they see fit. In this case, the customizations Verizon has made are the ones listed above by Big_Rich.

    What were registry edits. I would like manually control call forwarding. Thanks

    Anyone who updated with the new update have a similiar list of what's in the Extended ROM and what cabs may not be necessary?

    Thumbs up

    By any chance has anyone saved a dump file with ALL of the Verizon cabs from the EXtended ROM (with the New Updated ROM)? I have done something to my Extended ROM and it shows there is only 800KB Of space left but will only let me see about 6 files. I need to reformat it and reload the cab files if anyone has them? This forum is the Best!

    MY results while trying to customize my phone.

    I did a soft reset while the 3 second message was showing. Use Total Commander to get to the Extended_Rom. I would launch the .CABs but some of them would not make all the changes they were supposed to. Looking inside the .CABs I saw the .XML files that listed the changes they were supposed to make. I used the customize.cab as the benchmark. Just launching the .CAB would not set the EPST codes.

    So, I unlocked the extended rom partition, modified the config.txt and deleted the .CABs I didn't want. (I copied all my .CABs to my PC first). I hard reset the phone and let the auto custimize run. Many of the initial .CABs seemed to run through real fast as if they weren't there. Anyway, one of them was the Customize_105201.sa.CAB. It sill didn't make the changes to the HKLM/Service/PhoneExt/KeyProgram that it was supposed to. On top of that, now all the .CABs were deleted from the extended rom. Can it be re-locked?

    The third attempt I did was, Hard reset, interupt the execution of the customization (3 second warning screen). Copied over my modified Config.txt and all the .CABs I wanted installed. Moved them to the extended rom. Ran Autorun.exe. This popped up the 3 second screen then ran through the Config.txt and soft reset the phone. Now, all the exptected customizations appear to be where they are supposed to be.

    This doesn't seem to make sence. If the settings from the XML don't get set unless run run from the AutoRun, why didn't it work when I let it run during after the Hard reset. If it has nothing to do with the AutoRun, why didn't it work when just running the .CAB individually?

    Anyone have any insite?

    I just let them all install and haven't run across any limitations so far. I suppose some of the stuff in the phone options is hidden but it's not important to me. Wifi and phone are both working simultaneously without any hacks as well.
