Deepshining custom HTC TITAN ROM includes some Nokia goodies

Deepshining ROM HTC TITAN

The brains over on the XDA Developers forum have cooked up another custom ROM for the HTC TITAN. The Deepshining custom ROM bundles a number of features and improvements on top of the already butter smooth operating system. We previously looked at the Deepshining custom ROM for the HTC HD7, which introduced custom themes among other tweaks.

So what's included in this ROM? It sports a number of features that reminds us of the 'WPV 8779 Nokia Edition v3' ROM we covered not so long ago. dotcompt highlights the following of Deepshining:

  • Tango (build 7.10.8779.8) with Internet sharing
  • Developer Interop unlock + Max number unsigned apps + prevent re-locking
  • 25 Languages
  • 13 available themes and 19 accents
  • OEM apps from HTC Omega like HTC Hub, Notes, Attentive phone.
  • Deepshining apps: Spot On, Devstore8 and WP Extended
  • Nokia Camera Extras, Nokia Contact Share and Nokia Counters

As always with any custom ROM or modifications to your Windows Phone, you should proceed with caution and at your own risk. Windows Phone Central can not take any responsibility should your device become self-aware after loading this ROM. Should it plan for world domination, it unfortunately comes down to you as the owner. Head on over to the XDA Developers thread for more information and to download.

Deepshining custom HTC TITAN ROM includes some Nokia goodies


No they work perfectly fine. It is just "hacked/pirated apps that need extraction". You can still pirate and download an app with ease off the marketplace without any issue but in order to remove the encryption key that matches the serves and add yours, you need to unzip and re-zip the .xap and that's where it fails. So even though you can extract .xaps you cannot remove those signatures. However the ones which are baked into the Custom Roms are older .xaps with custom sig. They work fine. - tested.

Do you happen to be a Lumia owner recently burnt with WP7.8 announcement? Then I understand your sentiment. 
However, I don't see how this article or any comments are promoting piracy here. OEM exclusives are being cooked into ROMs since the days of Windows Mobile. Also, the ROM chef has not pirated apps but made registry changes and other tweaks to make the phone open for any OEM apps. With new encryption by MSFT in place, I don't see why any developer has a reason to be sad apart from Lumia owners who wish to have all exclusives because that is why the bought a Lumia. PS: I own Lumia 800.

I m a developer !
I was curios too see if the new encryption works, and it seems completely true for new Apps only.
"Old" hacked xap will still work, but new Apps (or updated one) cannot be hacked any more (if I have understood correctly) . That's enough for me, every App soon or later will receive an update, so hacked xap will be obsolete early ;)
