GTX Inspired Showcase Skin

May 8, 2010   By:

GTXShowcasePreview

One of the most annoying things about WM devices is that by default you can only close an app by clicking on the start menu, settings, system, memory, and then running programs tabs. Most of the cooked ROM´s have included a better option for task managing, like e-Natives:

e-Natives Showcase is a free Finger Friendly and Resource Friendly Task Manager with professional skinning and a easy to use interface. It helps you control the running processes on your device, you have the ability to review all running processes, the memory usage and many other options.

Member ebbinger_413 has created a nice skin for the E-Natives task manager, Give it a try if you are bored with your actual look of your task manager app.

CapScr0002

This small tool created by XDA member copenhagen will let you know how much time your Windows Mobile device has been turned on, great to do some battery tests with different ROM´s, different batteries or to do some benchmarking.
This application can be used on all Windows Mobile versions such as 6.1, 6.5 and 6.5.x and should work in any resolution.

I wrote a script to show you the device uptime.
I know there is software out there to do this already, but this is simple small and you dont need to install anything new.

What it does

  1. 1. when you boot your device it writes the current timestamp to a file \UpTime.log
  2. 2. Anytime after that when you run the DisplayUptime.mscr it calculates the difference between the BootTime and CurrentTime and then displays the results in the form of x Days, x Hours, x Minutes, x Seconds

!NEW! – I added LastBoot date/time & Current date/time to message window and reformatted how the info is displayed

And that’s it. It runs for a brief moment at boot up, and then again when you run the script. light, fast and effective.

For those of you that are not familiar with the work of NRGZ28, he is one of the most active chefs at XDA and lately (over a year or so) has increased the quantity and quality of his ROMs, which are of the Energy Series. His ROMs cover many devices including: Leo, Rhodium, Topaz, Raphael, and more.

Through this interview, we shall learn more about NRGZ28, that recently also has become a Moderator.

orb3000: Hi NRGZ28, I know I am taking your precious time so I appreciate a lot for agreeing to this interview. First, how did you get started in the gadgets/mobile/devices world?

NRGZ28: I’ve loved gadgets every since I was a little kid. Phones… a few years ago. Windows Mobile phones ? Around 2007 or so.

orb3000: XDA has played a very important role in all our lives. How would you describe your personal experience at XDA?

NRGZ28: XDA-Developers is THE site to go for anything related to Windows Mobile [and now Android]. It’s a invaluable resource that HTC and Microsoft should use more to their advantage. Although nobody can say they aren’t already doing that.

For me personally, XDA has been like a drug. Once you have a little, you can’t stop.

orb3000: What is what moves you to cook ROMs?

NRGZ28: The excitement to play with new apps, mods, builds. Everytime a new build comes down the pipe with new software in it, I’m like a kid in a candy store. And of course… I have to share that with everyone else that uses my ROMs :)

orb3000: You cook for so many different devices, what are the most important challenges you face?

NRGZ28: The most important challenge is, of course, keeping up with all the threads and the sheer amount of posts they all get daily. I most rely on the automated reply emails XDA sends me.

orb3000: Your Energy ROM thread in Rhodium section has almost 2 million views and is (I dare to say) the most visited thread at XDA. Talking a little bit about numbers, which are impressive for sure, tell us about the number of downloads you have per month, what is the most downloaded ROM?

NRGZ28: The most downloaded ROM has be the Blackstone series of ROMs. The HD2 comes in as a close second and third would be the Rhodium. The Touch Pro ROMs used to be most downloaded, but I would guess most people now moved to the newer, faster WVGA devices.

orb3000: You are used to receive tons of PMs, e-mails, Twitter messages, etc. asking you to include something on your next ROM, fixing this and that, but what would NRGZ28 ask of your fans?

NRGZ28: Enjoy the ROMs as delivered and customize them as you see fit. After all, that’s why there’s Salt, Pepper and sauces on every restaurant table, right ? For you to personalize your food to your taste after the chefs cooks it for you.

orb3000: What are your plans on short term? We can see you cook a ROM at least once per week (I know I´m too short on the estimate). What is what you are working into this days? Any preview you want to share with us?

NRGZ28: I’m working on also providing stock-looking, lean ROMs, such as the ROMs provided by other chefs like Dutty and Miri. That will be a while though as it requires a major restructuring of my kitchen :)

orb3000: Continuing into the future, what are the plans for NRGZ28 on a mid/long term? Are you planning to work with WP7? If so, what are the challenges you see coming?

NRGZ28: We’ll see what happens with WP7 when it comes out or at least when we’ll have hardware for it to play with. The biggest challenge would be “unlocking” the customizing potential of WP7 through custom ROMs of course. We’ll see… :)

Well NRGZ28, thank you very much for giving this interview, I know people will think, let him go back to Cook!, so congratulations for your fantastic contribution to mobile world, I am sure you will have a special place among those who opened new possibilities and challenges.

If you’d like to ask NRGZ28 a question, feel free to leave it in a comment below, and we’ll include it in part two of this interview, coming soon!

If you’re a developer/chef that wants to be interviewed, please send me a PM.

Opera is a great browser but the inability to use Flash was something that bothered a lot of users. While the guys from Opera fix this, xda-dev member aDEO created this very useful app to enable flash when using Opera.

The updated version 1.5.4 is now available, so have a read and grab it! This is the first beta supporting Opera 10. If your device is not included in the “UAProf Device” list, this tool probably will not work (though this might depend on your ROM).

Originally posted by aDEO

Intro
After I saw few open threads about how to enable Flash into Opera browser, I decide to create this tool, which will automatically install and configure everything you need to run your Opera with Flash support.
With other words: No need to install Flash Lite… Yes, just Plug&Flash!

Background
Find some time and read hilaireg’s post from here, who explains the exact “Flash situation”.
This flash plugin announce itself as Flash 9 compatible to play back any ActionScript 2.0 SWF content. However, it is based on Flash 8 technology and that why this plugin doesn’t support ActionScript 3.0… This is the reason why most of the sites still want to upgrade it, but some of them will work.

Works with
Every Opera 9.50/9.70 build, which support plugins and works with v2.1 initialization files. Also support latest 9.70 builds, which using registry instead of ini files.
You can try and share your experience with your version/build here, but for me Opera 9.70 #35443 is the best flash-wise build so far (my personal preference).
This tool work also on your PC, if you start it from Opera’s root folder, but this is another story…

GVEasySMS_Horiz

This great app, created by msullivan, gives you the option to send messages via your 3G data connection, this way your outgoing SMS messages cost you nothing! This application for Windows Mobile devices allows easy text messaging via your Google Voice account (only working for USA for now). The app tries to open a few URL connections via OS networking components using your data connection.

Originally posted by msullivan
I’ve not been able to find a free application for Windows Mobile that allows easy text messaging (SMS) via your Google Voice account. I wanted something easy to use that also pulls from the phone’s contacts list. So since I couldn’t locate an app that suites these needs, I created one.

New In Version 1.1
NOTE: This version and all future versions requires the .NET Compact Framework 3.5, see below.

  • Smart contact selection. Start typing a name or number, and Easy SMS will start narrowing your choices for you.
  • Update checking and notification. A very low-bandwidth way of keeping your software up to date.
  • Debug mode. Having issues? Enable Debug Mode in your settings and let me know of the error details, maybe I can help you out with it
  • Some small bugs have been fixed.
  • Support for most special characters in message text.
  • Public source code (click through to my website).

– When you submit a report about the problem a copy of it is saved to ‘My Documents’ folder
– Added option to bring the app to the foreground, when transmitting a message (useful when using a global hotkey)

Do you think your GPS takes ages to get it´s location?, after installing the GpsModDriver you can get at fix in about 30 seconds. Member Mach2003 presents this updated fix that works in older devices as well.

Originally posted by Mach2003
This Driver installs between your gps application and the GPSID driver that reads the hardware gps data.
Lag is compensated, by guessing your position ‘some number’ of milliseconds in the future, current course and speed changes are included in the guess.
It corrects for invalid data in the gps strings, Out of range DOP values, and Heading values of ‘NaN’ (Not A Number). Position, Speed, and course are reported, even though the distance traveled is less than 30 meters.

Hardware Compass Support information is in Post Number two.
NEW DRIVER version 2.4

  • Enabled Sat display when unfixed GPS is being read
  • Changed when and why I send Cell Tower, Last Known or Live GPS data
  • Added support for installation to external storage
  • Fixed “logFile.txt” creation bug
  • Enabled MSAPI by default on Cab install when save settings is not used (or on new installations)

External Card Storage

  • If the card is removable, installing a device driver to it is just a BAD idea, don’t do it!
  • My attached shortcuts don’t work, make your own or edit mine.
  • Your card may not be avalable during boot, so driver may not autoload.
  • Driver will take londer to load, so phone will take longer to boot.
  • ModSettings will take longer to load
  • Uninstall is not as perfect, but still works fine, except it is possible that the dll on the card may not be removed if it is in use at the time.
  • Did I say don’t install to a card unless you have to?

Member trueg brings you 2 sets of registry settings that will enhance the way you view web pages on Internet Explorer 6.

Originally posted by trueg
There are two sets of registry settings that I think greatly impact the usability of IE in WM 6.5.3 (and possibly newer builds).

Enable Auto Font Resize

With the introduction of WM 6.5.3, Microsoft made several changes to Internet Explorer.
Viewport Settings

Notice in the above screenshots that in WM 6.5 the text is clearly readable, though not all of the page fits on the screen.

The changes in 6.5.3 now allow the entire page to fit, but the text is smaller and less readable. Perhaps you would assume that this is unavoidable if you want to fit the entire page, but that is not the problem.

IE is actually very good at page rendering if it knows what size of screen you have.

Microsoft sets the default viewport size to 800×600. This means that IE will render the page for an 800×600 screen and then zoom out to fit the entire page. Note that the default for WM 6.5 is 1024×768.

Continue on to the application thread for more information and the screenshots.

people4x4

Did you ever want to change the layout of your people tab on Sense/Manila? Rado_K created a cab that allows to change it to a 4×4 layout. He’s still working on this tool but it´s usable and stable for those of you who want to test it.

Originally posted by Rado_K
Hi, I search xda forum and found nothing about how to change People tab layout. So I make a little modification, that change the layout of People tab to 4 x 4 shortcuts, but there is still 15 shortcuts. I try to increase the number of shortcuts, but I was not successful. The result, that I achieved was, that I increase the number of shortcuts, but when I want to add new contact number 16 and more nothing happen (still blank field).

I use WM 6.5.5 (23554) and HTC Sense 2.5.2012.1412
