There are several tweaks and mods for the powerhouse also known as the HTC HD2. However, one of the most popular ones (aside from CHT) is Touch Tools, which just happened to receive a much deserved update. XDA member lyriquidperfection has just released a new set of tools that will allow the user to apply, in a rather simple manner, many tweaks and mods to the Windows Mobile platform, most of which are only accessible via registry. Some of the tools included are Pinch to Zoom Manager, Boot Manager, System Viewer, HotKey Utility, and several others. each one of these will allow you to fully customize any part of the OS that you feel is lacking some of your personal touches, all that without having to touch the registry yourself!

Please try it out and let the dev know if you find any bugs.

Touch Tools for HTC 2.0 Suite is a powerful set of applications that lets you modify different settings on your device that would not otherwise be available to you.

There are currently 9 applications that make up the full Touch Tools 2.0 Suite

Dear friends,
After investigating several phonecanvas for HD2 like Huashan, Oboe, Rhodium, Topaz on wm6.5.x I’ve managed to find that latest phonecanvas is capable to autorotate.

I’ve tried and read about all the fixes that exist for wm6.5.x and managed to patch
phonecanvas so it rotates fine.

Replacing dlls doesn’t always work and I taught lets try to do the patches myself so it matches the current phonecanvas.

SimClock Widget For CHT2

March 21, 2011   By:

SimClock

With the introduction of the Android platform, Windows Mobile seems to be fading away. If you have an HD2 running Android, you probably remember the days of using Cookies Home Tab to spice up your Windows Mobile experience. XDA members NordpolcamperDunc001 have not forgotten the WinMo community and have continued the development of CHT Widgets, bringing users SimClock.

Originally posted by Nordpolcamper
The SimClock Widget comes in 4 Layouts. These Layouts define the appearance of the Date text. That alone of course isn’t it.
With SimClock, you can choose to resize the background of the widget, extending it up to the entire height of your screen, but without changing the size of the clock. This will allow you to really personalize the look of your home screen. That however, is not the “really cool stuff.” When pressing the time or date on your widget, a QuickPanel will open up letting you choose an action out of five options:
  • Alarm
  • World Clock
  • Calendar Tab
  • Tasks
  • Contacts

Choosing one of the actions listed will bring you to the corresponding tab. Through this menu and by following the instructions in the OP, you can even change the color of all components in your widget.

If you are still running Windows Mobile CHT2, this widget is a must to add a personal touch to your phone. Visit the original thread for more details.
