Continuing with the search of new task bars and icons, a hole new set designed by XDA member tacchan23 has arrived.
Blue, red, green and black are some of the color combinations you can find on these new sets to personalize your Windows Mobile device. The dev recommended for these themes to be use along with DUSK themes.
Available for GSM and CDMA devices running WM6.5 and up for all resolutions VGA/WVGA/QVGA/WQVGA.
Also you can find a new WM dialer for all resolutions as well.

- WM 6.5.x and 6.5
- (W)VGA – also (W)QVGA for few versions only
- Best used along with one of my Themes below (becouse some of the dll files of the taskbar also contains the images of the Wm6.5.x Softkeybar buttons, and I skinned them with the same style as in my Theme)

For those who have Opera Mobile as your preferred browser, you will agree that flash issues are very annoying. Last month, we presented the work of XDA member aDEO. who had just updated this magnificent fix to enable flash in Opera. He is back with another update, which improves the partial flash functionality in Opera 10.
The developer wanted to make an easy and simple installer, so there is no need to install any third party application.
Working on Windows Mobile 5 and up, the device must have NET Compact Framework v2.0 or later.
Even though Opera Mobile 10 is not 100% supported, update v188.8.131.52 has some improved Opera 10 support.
Make sure to give it a go and leave feedback.

With other words: No need to install Flash Lite… Yes, just Plug&Flash!
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.
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…
You can find more information in the mod thread.
Both XDA members degake and hazzahex have separately developed modifications for the popular Volume Control app found on recent HTC ROMs, which allow you to change the colour of the volume bars and buttons to something more interesting.
Degake’s modifications (as seen on the right) include metallic shading and lighting and also feature an interesting ‘dot’ effect for the volume bars, which brings a very different look to the control. These modifications are available in any colour you like.
Meanwhile, hazzahex has also included skins for the Comm Manager switches to match the Volume Control themes, along with a different colour for its title bar too.
For some of us it´s very important to keep track of our batteries more accurately, or simply in a different style from the stock WM battery meter. With this in mind, XDA member ZuinigeRijder updated his application BattClock to version 2.1.2. This application is highly customizable as all of its options are configurable via registry. Also, visual feedback can be acceded easily touching a button. It can be used in almost any device as it supports all Windows Mobile versions and most of their different resolutions.

TrashKalmar‘s very popular anti-theft app, CrimsonLock, has very recently been updated. Along with critical bug and error fixes, the most important addition to the already mature application is support for the HTC HD2 – a much begged-for addition since the phone became one of the most popular Windows Mobile devices on the market.
If you haven’t already heard of it, CrimsonLock is designed to maximize the chances of your phone being returned to you in the case of theft. Through sending a specific code to the phone via SMS, it is possible to regain control of the device. If this doesn’t happen, it will at least make using the phone a nightmare for whoever was stupid enough to steal it.
The application tracks phone calls, SMS messages, soft resets and switching off GSM phone bands, and will detect when a different SIM card is inserted into the device (multi-SIM users needn’t worry as support for several cards has been integrated).
Once control is regained, the original owner can choose to block texts and calls to and from the phone or to switch the phone module off completely. Additionally, you can have fun messing with the alarm, SD card formatting and keypad lock settings to make the thief’s life a living hell. After the app recognizes the original user’s number as a trusted number as set during setup, it is possible to force-call the thief and even to switch the speakerphone on. The owner can also request for GPS co-ordinates to be sent to their replacement phone if the original device supports it.
These are only a few of the features available through the app – the rest can be found along with the download link in the application thread. All resolutions except square QVGA are supported, and any device running WM5+ should work fine with the app.

First released back in September 2008 by XDA member supbro, iDialer v0.53 provides the functionality to call from your Google Voice account direct from the dialpad on your Windows Mobile device. The dialpad is a clone of the much loved iPhone dialer and is fully skinnable.
Compatible with QVGA, VGA, HVGA and WVGA (upscaled) on touchscreen and non touchscreen devices (pocketpc and smartphones), iDialer is compatible with WM6 ,6.1 and 6.5. At the time of writing, compatibility with WM6.5.3. is still to be confirmed.
When placing an outgoing call, iDialer will ask which service you wish to use – however I suspect that most would use their Google Voice account if they have one.
iDialer relies on the built-in default dialer or Google Voice to place the call using a callback method. Once the call is made, iDialer closes down and an incoming call is received from your Google Voice number, which when answered connects to the recipient. Your actual phone call occurs over your phone network and the data network (so not VoIP).
Other features include copy & paste, dialling ‘p’ and ‘w’ in phone numbers from iContact (supbro’s affiliated contact manager app), long press ‘1’ for voicemail, other speed-dials 2-9. 911 calls are always forced to use the built-in dialer.
iDialer is best used with iContact and GreenButton (both applications were developed by supbro and integrate superbly with iDialer). Without iContact, you will need to either remember the numbers that you wish to dial or copy and paste from the default contacts application. GreenButton maps your hardkey call button to call up iDialer, rather than the default dialpad. Unfortunately if you are a fan of Mobile Shell, then GreenButton will not work for you – in which case AEButton (Plus) is a good alternative to map the hardkey yourself. In order for iContact to communicate with iDialer, both applications must be installed to the same memory – either Storage Card or device memory.
Number format display can be updated via the registry or via supbro’s CabGen app which will update the registry for you. Dialpad tone volume too has it’s own registry key and can be modified to ‘0’ if you like a silent dialpad or you can install supbro’s mute keypad.cab.
For those of you looking for a fully integrated dialer, then iDialer unfortunately is not for you – ultimately it is a dialpad (it has no TAPI functionality built in) with no additional in-call features (the default dialer takes over), or built in SMS capability for Google Voice. Supbro has planned for in-call features to be developed in version 1.0 although the last update was way back in September 2009. In addition smartdialling is not supported, neither is video calling, nor USSD messages.

Hi there, i just want to have feedback on my TaskOS app.
This application show to the users all the apps he opened and never closed. ( leave applications with HOME key and it will appear. Leave with back key and won’t appear.)
The user can scroll between all these apps and launch one by clicking on it or kill it by dragging to the top ( like Palm PRE)
That’s a beta, but all the mains features are there.
