Here is Co0kie’s Home Tab Editor, for editing the settings for Co0kieMonster’s most excellent home tab mod.
With this application you can modify all the settings for the mod without having to open a registry editor, as well as being able to export & import all your settings and quicklinks, in case you need to hard reset or flash a new ROM.
Fixed a problem where selecting an app from the application list did not assign it correctly.
I’ve added a folder treeview for exporting and importing settings, rather than saving them to the root of the storage card, which didn’t always work.

I’ve also fixed the “Number of days to look ahead”, which wasn’t updating, despite the value being changed and stored successfully.
You can get the update in the application thread.
