I´m sure more than one had at least one time to disable your Sense/Manila for any reason, if so you´ll remember that too many steps are needed to get there. Well, thanks to XDA member AndiCP, this action has been reduced to it´s minimum, now needing only one step to switch on/off Sense UI.
The developer also has provided the source code and a registry hack so you can do more with the application.

[APP] SenseControl – Control your Sense

Hi All,

today I have something new for you: SenseControl.
With this very small app you can enable/disable SenseUI with one tap.

You will get two shortcuts (which you can use with SmartBoot my free boot manager for WM) in your start menu to easily enable and disable SenseUI.

Additionally I provide the source code of this app on my homepage.

Please download this app from here.

You can find more information in the application thread.

XDA member OndraSter presents another 100% working hack for your Windows Mobile device. LockScreenPatcher was developed as per members request as it was enabled only for LG Fathom device, now working on Rhodium and for sure in any other device with same resolution running WM6.5 and up.
This control is for Windows Media Player, not HTC player. A video of the hack working can be found in the original thread.

[APP] Patch your lockscreen to enable MEDIA CONTROL and GESTURES (gest. are on TODO)

Hello
another of my (working) hacks, this time it is, everybody’s wanted, LOCKSCREEN MEDIA CONTROL! We know that it was enabled on LG Fathom device, but I just made it working even on my TP2. Video of proof
How to use:

  1. Download latest version of LockScreenPatcher (currently: test)
  2. Download lockscreen.dll from your phone (Resco Explorer, RAPI tools, this will be automated maybe in later versions)
  3. Run the LockScreenPatcher against the lockscreen.dll you just copied over
  4. If everything goes fine, there should be message “File patched blabla”
  5. Now take newly generated file (lockscreen.dll_), rename to lockscreen.dll and put back to your phone
  6. Insert into registry that value, as the application tells you
  7. Reboot your phone
  8. Voila

Those of you who own a non-Snapdragon powered device will be overly popular with one of Windows Mobile’s most-seen animations: the wait cursor. When you’re running your favourite applications or simply trying to send a text message, you know it’s not good news if you see the rotating coloured orbs.

Interestingly, the wait cursor seems to be one of the least-frequently customised aspects of the default Windows Mobile interface. XDA member davej is hoping to change that with the release of an addition package to the popular Marshall WaitCursor 3.0 animation-changing application.

davej’s designs include a rotating, colour-changing globe and the radioactivity label and are sure to bring some originality to your device. Check them out in the modification thread.

Without letting it slip to the general public, Co0kieMonster slyly added another layer to the HTC Sense homescreen in the latest release of Co0kie’s Home Tab. This was requested by XDA developer m0bmentality, and its purpose has only recently been revealed.

This week, m0bmentality introduced the ForeLayer modification. This small yet entertaining addition to the list of ways in which CHT enhances your phone’s interface allows you to add overlays to your homescreen without them affecting its responsiveness. For example, designs such as windows, animals, splashes of water and smashing effects can be positioned on top of your device’s widgets, staying stationary when you swipe to a different screen.

m0bmentality’s new modification grants Co0kie’s Home Tab users more freedom when it comes to customising Manila. To pick it up, visit the project thread.

Shake’n’Wake Mod for HD2

October 10, 2010   By:

HTC_HD21

Although it was created some time ago, XDA member zzattack has created an interesting modification for the HTC HD2, which is worth bringing to the surface.

The Shake’n’Wake application does exactly what it says on the tin. Rather than relying on pressing the power button to wake your HD2 from standby, the app instead lets you do so with a quick shake, making full use of the phone’s accelerometer.

While being an interesting tool, Shake’n’Wake has some practical uses too. The app was originally conceived as a fellow member was looking for a way to wake the device in some way other than by pressing the power button, which had been somehow broken. In addition, some users have expressed fear of breaking the buttons by obsessively hammering them to check for new texts – thankfully, by using this app, only your wrist is in danger of being broken.

Proceed to the application thread for more information and the .cab.

sms

XDA member mcluvn presents this widget theme for Manila SMS and e-mail tabs on your Windows Mobile device. Over six different themes can be found in black, blue, red, GTX and other styles.
The developer also includes the colour numbers combination to change the font colors on the email and messaging widgets. Working on WM6.5 and up running Manila 2.5 with CHT2.0, just install the cab and soft reset.

You dont need cht 2.0 installed. It will work without it.
It will also work with any version of cht but the sms widget is only on the cht 2.0.

To change the font colors on the email and messeging widgets us the chteditor. The color numbers are 255,255,255 for pure white and 0,0,0for pure black.

Just install the cab and soft reset.
PLEASE IF YOU TRY ANY OF THESE OUT LEAVE SOME FEED BACK FOR ME. THANK YOU

Manila Slider 3D for WM

October 7, 2010   By:

screen18

What about having some sliders in 3D for your Windows Mobile device? XDA member tantin75 has made it possible. The original Manila icons have been re worked to give the simulation of a multidimensional look, working on patched Manila 2.5 and should also work on 2.1.
When you select the tab you want to use, the rest of the icons will remain lay down like giving the selected tab a nice effect. Working on WM6.5 and up.

[SLIDER][25 SEP] Slider 3D

I present to you my new slider.

The idea came when I saw that some had put, on their wallpaper, docks to give the impression that the quicklinks above were posed.
Having failed to find anyone who has a slider that way, I’m running.

Recommendations :
- you must have manila 2.5 (but may work also on 2.1: test at your own risk :mrgreen: ),
- your manila must be patched to accept compressed files.
The cab includes only the original icons reworked presented below (no programs and no ereader for now), the slide bar and the slide tab.

opera face 3

XDA member imbunned presents this powered version of Opera mini 5.1 for Windows Mobile devices. Opera Mini’s interface does a decent job of balancing simplicity and functionality. When not in full-screen mode, the basic interface includes a title bar at the top, an address bar and multi-search field below, and a toolbar at the bottom.
The enhanced version presented by the developer includes: Gsensor disabled-enabled option, on-line MP4 playback, large files download, latest address open automatically, youtube mp4 download & playback, and more.

Aside from making quite a few announcements and updates regarding the upcoming final version of CHT 2.0.0, XDA member Co0kieMonster just provided the community with everything that is needed to have more development for CHT. The dev provided a widget kitchen and a very detailed manual for experienced devs. This will allow people to develop new things for Sense (CHT) and maybe even improve on already existing ones. Keep in mind that some previous knowledge on Manila and lua are required as they are not covered at all in the guide.

Moreover, a dev group has been made available for devs to join. However, this is by invitation only. Do you have anything new to bring to the table? Feel like you can make the next best widget to hit a WM device? Then, hop over to the tutorial and start coding.

Addon widget kitchen and dev guide:
I uploaded the addon kitchen to post 6 on the first page:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta…2&d=1286152965

Along with the kitchen tools you’ll find:
1) A CHT addon dev guide – it’s a draft right now, I’ll expand it based on feedback.
2) Source files for all addon widgets.

The dev guide should help you get started, but basic manila and lua knowledge it needed and not explained in the guide. Hopefully the guide will expanded in the future to include that too.
A few devs have already managed to create their own addons, so I’m hoping this will not be too difficult for others either. You can get more information or post your feedback on widget development either here or in the dedicated dev group:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/group.php?groupid=278. Contact me over PM for an invite to the dev group – please, only people who are serious about development.

You can find more information in the development thread.

By changing your device’s font, you can quickly give it a fresh look without trawling through menus or un- and re-installing themes. XDA member kliptik‘s popular KD-Font application allows you to modify the system fonts on any Windows Mobile phone and also provides a finger-friendly and appealing interface with which to do so.
KD-Font is a lightweight app, which only downloads the font files when you select one to apply. Once a font style is chosen, you are given the decision of whether to apply it to the whole phone or just either the Windows Mobile shell or HTC Sense. Since its initial release this July, the app has matured to version 1.2.2, with the addition of new fonts, a new library updating method, the ability to sort fonts in the library by category and fixes to allow KD-Font to be cooked into custom ROMs.
To give your device’s menus a new look, try KD Font by downloading it from the application thread.
rguclean3435

XDA member OndraSter, creator of the Pinch to Zoom package for resistive screens, has recently updated REG/RGU cleaner: a small yet highly useful tool, which trims the excess off any .reg or .rgu file you might have dumped from your Windows Mobile phone’s registry.

The utility goes through the selected files, collecting registry nodes and overwriting duplicate keys to make the whole file smaller. The file is then saved separately for later use. In addition, REG/RGU cleaner will remove the unnecessary zeros from the start of dword values in the registry to make the key more readable.

As an example, OndraSter says that the tool cut the size of a recent registry dump by 14%. Numerous updated to the application have seen bugs squashed and features refined, and you can access it from the project thread.

We have not seen too much stuff for non touch screen devices recently. XDA member Thekn presents Thekn Apps , a series of mortscript tweaks to completely customize your Windows Mobile Standard device.
With the developer’s tweaks you´ll be able to modify fonts, icons, and splash screens running WM6.1 and 6.5.
It was tested on Samsung GT-C6625, but I can confirm it´s working on Excalibur and Maple.

Hee guys, sorry for the delay. There were more bugs than I expected,
now it must be bug free! Also the Tweaks by Thekn v1.0 has some delay
because I wanted to add the Font Changer in it but I finished the Font
Changer about a minute ago! So the Tweaks by Thekn App will be
released in a couple of days!

This Program let you change the System Font. The downloaded .rar file
contains the .cab Installation File and a .rar Archive with the most
popular Windows Unicode Fonts.
