Use your Location as a Wallpaper with WMM

maps

We have been using all sorts of wallpapers over the years: pictures, drawings, animations, weather wallpapers, but this is a first. XDA member MikyWoW has made an app that will pull your location using Google Maps and will place a map (from GoogleMaps) with your exact location as a wallpaper. A nifty feature is that the app will update itself, meaning that you can set an interval where the program will update this picture with your new location. It seems that the app works with WVGA, but it may work with other resolutions (QVGA has been confirmed to not work).

The program locates the coordinates without the use of GPS (like Google Maps) download the map from GoogleMaps and set as background.

[VSS] WMD Visio Stencil File

abd

XDA member summoner developed this useful tool: Visio Stencil File. In case you are not familiar with it, this tool will let you create diagrams in Windows Mobile devices using vector graphics.
On this first version of the application, the developer included Emulator and Sense SDK images. Also, he made an open invitation for others to join this project.

Hey Guys,

I’ve started making some really good WM apps and wanted to do some visio stuff. Guess what – nothing ready to use! So I made my own.

Most shapes right now are based on the emulator and Sense SDK but will add more as time progresses.

If anyone wants to join me I’ll be more than happy!

ver 0.1 – Emulator

Prevent your Screen from Timing Out While Using TomTom

tomtom

Have you ever used TomTom ono a Windows Mobile device? If so, then you are probably familiar with its inability on certain devices to keep the screen on (device’s power settings turning the screen off). To fix this dilemma, XDA member zapras has released a small script, which forces the device’s screen to stay on while TomTom is running. The app is very small and has been tested on the HTC Maple. It may be possible to make it work for other devices, so please post your feedback in the dev’s thread.

It’s a basic program which makes sure the display doesn’t timeout while TomTom is running.

I have only tested it on my HTC Maple and it works fine. The default path to TomTom is \Storage Card\P

HSPL3 Released for HD2

htc-hd2

We are all familiar with the work of XDA developer Cotulla, who is part of the DFT (Dark Forces Team) and responsible for allowing us to flash custom roms on many of the newer devices thanks to the HSPL unlocker. Due to a recent original firmware update for the HD2, the HSPL was overwritten to 2.10, which was no longer recognized by the unlocker. There were ways to go around this though, like flashing back to an older official rom that contained the 2.08 HSPL required by the unlocker, but even that was a bit cumbersome.

Cotulla released HSPL3 to solve this issue. This unlocker should replace the 2.10 version found in the rom release 2.13 and enable flashing of custom roms. Of course, this unlocker works with all versi. . . READ ON »
