Square Menu Array For Windows Mobile
It seems that lately we have seen a surge in activity from what was believed to be a dying area on XDA, Windows Mobile. If you have ever wanted to get rid of the weird arrangement of icons on the start menu for 6.5.x Roms, XDA Recognized Developer ultrashot has something that you will likely enjoy. This does not require you to install any third party launcher or anything of that sort, it is a plain and simple mod to the already existing Start Menu. So, if you were longing to get rid of what is left of the honeycomb idea that Microsoft tried to implement a few years back, now is your chance.
Pay close attention to the dev’s warning as this will not work on anything other than a custom Rom. Give it a shot and see if you like it. Also, please leave some feedback for the dev if you can.
P.S. don’t install it on stock roms. It won’t work. You’ve been warned
You can find more information in the mod thread.
