Lets Begin: GTX Icons

July 14, 2010   By:

googletest

GTX seems to be one of many hit mods that have been developed in our forums this year. In a very recent post by XDA member fjompa , the dev asks to begin development on GTX Icons. Now, while some people not familiar with the whole concept of GTX this might seem weird, but this famous theme has extensions in just about everything from lock screens to sms packages. The original poster only has one icon, but I am sure with our big community we can get many more icons by the end of the week.

If you want to help him out, head over to the thread and contribute to the development.

Interesting new icons are present on this theme as well as new slider and program icons.
An absolute must have for all art and theme lovers out there.

For those of you who prefer to use Windows Mobile Titanium in your home screen, XDA member kenchan2009 created a very well designed theme in two color combinations: Grey/Green and Black/Blue.
Both themes work on resolutions WVGA, VGA, WQVGA, and QVGA for WM6.5 by simply installing the cab provided by developer. The developer has also revealed the source of the idea for these themes for anybody with the skills to add new color combinations to this collection.

To complement the current king of all projects, XDANDROID (the Android-for-Windows Mobile porting project that spans over many devices, including the Touch Pro[2], Diamond[2], X1 and HD), XDA member babijoee is asking for the community’s help in designing a boot animation and a selection of wallpapers to give the project more recognition.

There have already been several interesting entries to the contest, including several .gifs from XDA member lugiber. However, the project still needs new ideas for wallpapers in order to make it truly unique.

Requirements

  • Wallpaper
  • Must contain the text “XDANDROID” (lowercase accepted)
  • 640×480 dimensions
  • 800×480 dimensions
  • png, jpeg format
  • Boot Animation
  • 512×256 dimensions
  • Contain text “XDANDROID” (lowercase accepted)
  • 100 frames total
  • png format

It’s quite likely that you’ve heard of the project if you have a recent Windows Mobile device. If babijoee likes your design, you will see it included in the next XDANDROID build along with four other contest winners’ entries.

If you think you have a good idea, why not drop in to the contest thread and see what everyone thinks.

Alecs Windows-Phone-7 Taskbar

XDA member optyqus launched his first release, which is a taskbar with WP7 style and icons on the typical light blue colored background.You´ll also find some nice icons to add your personal style on your device.
The taskbar currently works for WVGA & VGA devices running WM6.5 and up, but the developer will work on other resolutions as well.

QVGA & WQVGA – in progress

Built for HTC devices! Chances for this to work on other devices
(Toshiba, Samsung, Asus etc) are small. A Samsung Omnia version
is scheduled.

After almost 4 weeks of work on this project I managed today to finally take out the first cabs. I’m pretty sure this is gonna look good on your phones, it does on mine. Though I don’t particularly like WP7 themes, I must agree that their light blue tone really looks good on a pitch black background, so I decided to set this blue-square look on the taskbar.

INFO (read carefully)

This is a work in progress! Some icons (not many) are not skinned yet; further skinning is scheduled, but for now my work focuses on adapting the icons for W/QVGA. CDMA users will have to wait a few days for an updated cab, as I did not had the time (and patience) to draw the cdma icons for this release. Some of the icons were created by modifying images available on the web, thus credit goes to their authors. Please, do not post questions like “Will this work on my X device?”, just try at your own risk and find out if it does; it’s hard for me to know the effects of these cabs on different roms and devices. Due to the current rom abundance it’s impossible to create an universal taskbar cab file and to make all users happy. I cannot be held responsible for any eventual damage or disfunctionalities following the installation of my cabs.
Don’t share this on other hosts/websites without my permission. You are free to use and modify this project for private use, but don’t modify it and post it here or anywhere else without asking me first. If you are a rom chef and want to include this taskbar into your rom, drop me a PM first (notorious chefs can use this without asking me, but please send me a post-notification)

You can activate the app by simply touching a button in the device. Still in beta, but the update brings a quite a few improvements and promises from the dev.

Hi guys,

I was watching a Youtube video showing up the new HTC Wildfire with an awesome feature, pressing an hardware key you have access to an homescreen from where you can run the widget you desire.

So I´ve decided to create a small app for our Rhodium:

Name: HomeScreenJump for
Version: 1.2 beta
Author: dotcompt

Description: HomeScreen from where you can jump to the Manila Tab you want.
Tabs available: Home, People, Messages, Mail, Weather, Twitter, Music, Photos&Videos, Call History, eReader, Documents, GPS Tracker, Settings, Calendar, Internet, Manila TV, Stocks, Footprints, Facebook and Programs Tabs.

XDA member tin2404 shows us this great GTX SENSE theme, which is a tribute to master of paint Salvador Dalí. Tin2404 modified Co0kieMonster’s Home Tab and CHT Editor graphics to make this theme. Also, you can choose amongst several Dali´s different clocks to have your home screen with an art touch.
You´ll need to have Co0kieMonster’s Home Tab Mod version 1.7.1 and Windows Mobile 6.5 and up in order to make it work.

modified graphic files including modified some of Co0kieMonster’s Home Tab and CHT Editor graphics….NO NEED FOR ANY EXTRA ADD OR CABS ! Pure as it is suppose to be !
I made extra white minimalistic stylish theme based on faboluos and popular GTX SENSE.For the marvelous icon set thanks to Younxta and they can be found HERE.
I also made a new liquid clock inspired with Salvadore Dali’s painting ” The Persistence of Memory ” and I make slider based on Younxta icon set.Transparency added inside theme.

screenshot2as

Many of you have probably heard about MaxSense, another UI that completely redesigns the way you see your home screen. XDA member maxycy presents us with this nice looking UI, which has been unleashed for Chefs to cook it into their ROMs.
XDA chef NRGZ28, who is famous for his Energy ROM series, has launched ROMs with MaxSense cooked in them for many HTC devices such as Rhodium, Leo, and Blackstone, among others.
Are you tired of your home screen? Then, have a look at this fresh UI, which will unleash all the power of configuring and tweaking your Windows Mobile device home screen. On top of everything else, the UI can be changed to a wide selection of languages.

Introduction
If you are from outer space and wonders what MaxSense is all about, then please take some time to read through this.

This has taken a while longer than planned as I lack the free time that I used to have. Due to this, MaxSense will only be released in ROMs and there is no cab for it. This is to avoid answering questions all the time and give myself time to make further improvements. If you are a cook and intend to flash this to your ROM. Future updates will be posted here. The current version have some basic widgets but depending on the reception of this project, more things will be added.

What is MaxSense?
MaxSense is based on Manila/Sense 2.5. Unlike the original setup, MaxSense offers you total freedom to re-design your Home layout. All objects are now widget based and there are many customization options available to make your phone truly looks the way you want it. With full screen features and multiple screens, these allow you real estates to put things on the screen which were never possible. The UI design in such a way that it gives you access to the things you use frequently within a touch or scroll. I can go on forever but below summary of the features will bring to light what is there to offer.

Features of MaxSense

  • Full Screen ( Wallpapers 960×800 )
  • 3 Home Widget Screens ( Scroll left/right )
  • 75 Quicklink accessible on all tabs
  • Tab launcher screen accessible on all tabs
  • Full Taskbar with dropdown features accessible on all tabs
  • Widgets ( a lot of customization options and more to come )
  • Clocks ( Analog, Digital, Slide )
  • Alerts ( Calendar, Call History, Mail, SMS, Alert Display Panel )
  • Quicklinks ( 3 additional program shortcut widgets )
  • Communication ( Wifi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode )
  • Others ( Weather, Music Player, Favorite Contacts, Internet Search, Blank Panel )
  • General Settings
  • Weather Animation
  • Rotation
  • Autolock
  • AutoMute
  • Taskbar ( Hidden/Maximized/Minimized )
  • Text Color ( includes bottom arrow but exclude all widgets text which you can set individually )

sixaxis-gets-rumble

This is a very cool new application made by XDA developer Cobaltikus. It lets you control your Windows Phone games by using your Playstation 3 controller.
Many games, mainly emulators, are capable of working with this new application, which connects your Sixaxis/Dual Shock 3 controller with your Windows Phone using Bluetooth HID.
Although it is still in beta stage, the developer even plans to add WiiMote support to the application, which would be even more awesome!

Originally posted  by Cobaltikus

Use your Sony Playstation 3 Controller (Sixaxis/Dual Shock 3) as a Bluetooth HID device on your Windows Phone. It’s great for games, mainly emulators.
Tomorrow a friend is going to let me borrow his Wiimote for a while so I can add support for that controller as well.

Version 0.1 Available NOW!!!
I’m not done. but I’m done enough to use it. It’s stable and runs fine, but just limited in functionality relative to it’s capabilities. Nothing is configurable at the moment and there is no user interface.

So as we hear from the developer, it’s still in very early developing stage. No user interface, not very user friendly. But I think it’s already great to see what the developer has already managed to do!
Unfortunately, your phone needs to have a WidComm stack in order to get it running. This means that devices older than the Diamond2 probably will not work with it (Touch Pro confirmed to not be working). Luckily, the developer is working on getting the Microsoft stack to work too (will be released in v. 0.2).

The installation instructions are not straight forward, so I suggest that you read the first post very carefully before you proceed.
Please go to the application thread for download and more information!

catchme

Although, this is not new, it is a very useful application that allows you to communicate with other Windows Mobile devices using your internal or external GPS unit with no Internet connection.
Developed by xda member_LEM_, CatchMe will let you find other devices to know their location.
This app can be automated to send an SMS to another device and retrieve the information of location. That information will be updated to your GPS program, if no signal is available, the app will continue trying until get´s signal to send the SMS.

Originally posted by _LEM_
Devices running Windows Mobile 5 or 6 for Pocket PC or Smartphones

Microsoft Compact Framework 3.5 Download from here

DESCRIPTION

This tool allows you to communicate mobile devices using your GPS and SMS messsages with no internet connection. You will be able to know how far is another phone/target and what direction you need to follow to reach it

Imagine the scenario… you are hiking with some friends in 2 different groups and later during that day you guys want to meet. How do you do that if you got a poor reception and you don’t have an internet connection?

This is what happened to me a few days ago. I got signal only for a few seconds and when I tried to make a phone call it was dropped after a while because the quality was very bad.

This program allows you to add targets. You can request the position of these targets by sending a sms message.
If your PDA cannot send the message it will keep retrying every minute.

Once the other end gets the message, CatchMe will start the GPS automatically, get a fix and send a message back to the person who made the request. Again, if there are problems sending the message CatchMe will keep trying until success.

After getting the position of the target, you can start tracking and CatchMe will tell you how far your target is and what direction you need to follow.

OTHER FEATURES

- You can only receive requests from phones that have been added to your list. If you get a request from an unknown phone, the message will be discarded.
- You can also associate your current position to a target. This is useful if you want to mark a checkpoint to come back later. No SMS messages are sent at this point.
- In order to use this with another person, both persons need to run this program!
- You don’t need to be tracking when using the program. You only need to do that when you are following a target.
- Auto Start and Stealth modes available

Notes

If you plan to test the program using only one phone, don’t click on ‘dismiss’ when getting your own SMS message until CatchMe has processed the message, otherwise the message will be deleted before the program can access to it.
