Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon. Hisilicon's processor department may not be the most popular in the west but their technology is impressive, with year on year improvements being easily seen.

Manila / Sense 2.5 Tweaks
Boushh created some nice tweaks for Manila 2.5 and rolled them into a easily accessible .cab file.
Okay, I only have a few of these to start off with but I’ve been getting really into making manila’s layout as functionally transparent as possible. I know a couple guys already have a bunch of transparent clocks, sliders, contacts, etc. out there so I haven’t done any of them (they all work the same) but there have been a couple areas really bugging me.
My first Tweaks have to do with the internet shortcuts in the Internet tab. Over the next couple days I will be updating this with Transparent other areas (such as the internet search bar, Twitter Title, and more. I hope you find these useful and can give me some feedback.
You know the drill: I have tested these on Energy.RHOD500.23519.Leo_04.Feb.2010 (Running Sense 2.5 build 2011) only, However they should work on any ROM running build 2011 of Manila 2.1 and should work on the earlier builds of manila 2.5. They are also completely uninstallable should you encounter any issues. Still though, I gotta say it: use at your own risk, yada yada. Don’t blame me if aliens come and destroy your phone.
Download Cab and install. Reset required.
