Known Issues And Other Notes:

(1) It would seem that the Samsung Widgets specifically requires Adobe Flash Lite 2.1. Install this version if you plan on using the widgets.

(2) Certain programs may require specific versions of Microsoft SQLCE/.NETCF and thus may not work with this release. If your program is not working, please post in the discussion thread the name and the version to determine whether to revert to the original version that came with the firmware.

(3) The included xxxHolic Theme 1 although set to display black shade, Windows Mobile will automatically turn it to a gray shade. For an explanation on why Windows Mobile do this, click here.

(4) Samsung Online Widget, Opera 9.5, Adobe Flash Lite 3.1 and Tegic XT9 are available as a separate download.


  1. If you're unfamiliar with the update process I'm discouraging you to use any customized ROM. Visit the SAMSUNG site to familiarize yourself with the update process.
  2. Please fully charge your phone before attempting to update.
  3. Please backup your phone contacts, emails, messages and other important user information.
  4. Download and install the Samsung modem drivers for Windows XP.
  5. Download the file and scan for viruses. STOP if a virus is found. If the file is clean then run the self-extracting package. The updater will automatically run. Should an error occur while extracting the files, it's likely your download is corrupted.

    To increase the success of updating your ROM and prevent possible corruption of ROM files while updating: disconnect your computer from the network, turn off any firewall, antivirus and other unnecessary programs before running the updater.

  6. Enjoy your Samsung Omnia Phone: xxxHOLiC Edition (=

Samsung Omnia Widgets Browser Fix: In order for the widgets to load a web link (ie: downloading a widget or viewing a CNN story), create an "Opera Browser" shortcut in the \windows folder.

Some of the removed programs can be found in the Applications section. Be sure to visit this section with your xxxHOLiC edition omnia web browser (Pocket IE or Opera downloaded from the applications section). Otherwise, the list will be limited.
