Game Changers – HTC Home

htc-home-plugin

The recent XDA TV article by Azrienoch & cajunflavouredbob reminded me of the old days, when the HTC logo looked like this. Because of this, I was reminded of some of the old things released that really changed how we use and view our devices and also changed what we came to expect from the device manufacturers.

The first game changer I want to look at is HTC Home. This was the first incarnation of what would eventually come to be HTC Sense. It ran on windows mobile as a plug-in for the home screen and instead of displaying widgets that can be freely moved around to suit the users needs, it displayed one of 5 or 6 things on half the screen.

The first was the “home” tab, this displayed a large digital style clo. . . READ ON »

Play Angry Birds…. On Your Blue Angel (No Android Required!)

IMAG1115

Just to show that the fact that a device may be old does not mean it is dead, we have some interesting news for Blue Angel owners. I know it is likely a known trick as this comes from the HTC Mega, but XDA member zainuintel made a thread where he provides step by step instructions on how to run one of the most popular games in mobile device history on one of the best and most robust devices in HTC’s history: Angry Birds on the HTC Blue Angel. The best part is that you do not even need Android to do this as it is a java emulated version. You will be required to use some sort of a java player on your device such as JBlend, which happens to be the one that is recommended by the OP. According to zainuintel, the app should be compat. . .

Easily Backup Registry Values With SettingsExporter

SE1

Windows Mobile device owners out there will be familiar with registry backup tools and may be interested to hear about another variant – Settings Explorer by XDA member Skrobel.

The tool backs up the vital system/user/programs settings and parameters to a .reg file, which enables the user to quickly restore the settings after a flash or HR.

Settings Explorer exports either a single registry key (with all the values and subkeys) or whole registry. The tool is able to store:

  • single registry values in one key;
  • several registry values in one key;
  • all the values of a key but without the subkeys;
  • values which names start with a certain string;
  • values which names end with a certain string;
  • values containing a c

Avoid the Boot Loop Blues With Drag’n’MD5

DragnMD5

Are you a developer? Are you a theme creator? Are you an end user? Do you have a pulse? The truth is that it doesn’t matter who or what you are; you’ve probably used an MD5 calculator at some point. In fact, if you flash ROMs often, you probably even one this week to make sure that the latest CyanogenMod nightly wasn’t corrupted in transit. After all, no one likes the boot loop blues.

To that end, XDA Recognized Developer D4rKn3sSyS has created a simple Windows application that makes MD5 generation easy! You’re a simple drag-and-drop away from generating that ubiquitous and  tutelary, but otherwise-useless checksum. In the words of the developer:

 Hello, this is a basic software

wp7wm6kb

Not too long ago, we covered a rather unique looking keyboard skin for Windows Mobile by XDA forum member aedon. Now, upon request, he has created another keyboard skin meant to deliver the look and feel of the gorgeously minimal Windows Phone 7 keyboard.

Retaining the same functionality as his previous work, this skin works in every layout as well. Who said that Windows Mobile is dead? In the words of the developer:

 I had a few Requests to make a keyboard that resembles the Windows 7 Phone onscreen keyboard.

This keyboard Will skin every layout in your phone. It will also require an aditional step other then just installing the cab, as the cab will only skin the layouts, it will not change the letters to wh

wimospeed_windows_mobile_2

For Windows Mobile lovers, XDA member iwfratz posted an update to WiMoSpeed, a good tool to over clock your CPU.

It´s important to understand that by using this tool, you may damage your device, so make sure that you know how to proceed.

To download this app, go to the original thread and download the cab.
