For those members using QVGA devices with non touch screen, this great theme presented by XDA member gtg465x will be of your liking. Based on the Hero Sense, this new UI will completely change your WM home screen and will make your WM look like Android. Everything is working on it, including weather panel as the developer wrote it from scratch.
Working for Windows Mobile Standard 6.1 or 6.5.
Please leave feedback so developer can fix any bugs found.

[THEME] [Status Upd 6/9/2010] [QVGA Lnd] [Std 6.1|6.5] SenseHero for Smartphone Theme
Well, I’ve had a lot of free time on my hands lately and this is the result. I’ll probably be ditching my Blackjack II in about a month when I’m eligible for an upgrade, but I had to make one last theme for it.
As far as I’m aware, there are no other sliding panel themes like this for Windows Mobile Standard, and yes, the weather works! I had to write my own application for the weather (edit: and for the clock… I tried just using the HTC font for the clock but it didn’t look that great). Since it’s a sliding panel theme, there are of course pretty sliding animations when navigating around the home screen.

NOW CREATE YOUR OWN TASKBARS EASILY
As this section is specific for Windows Mobile 6.5 Taskbar Customisation, I’ll Start it with my set of icons. I tried to make full use of the ShellRess.dll and if more is needed then i’ll make sure more icons are covered.
Just have a look at the screenshots and you will understand how much capable WM6.5 taskbars are with more scope of customisation including the OK and X buttons.
Just click on the screenshot to download the cabs from my personal thread for Taskbar Customisation. You surely wont be disappointed.
There is alot more to come.
- Install Sdkcert.cab
- The Taskbar version you want.
- If you using WM standard dialer and Bluetooth icon doesnt shows up, Install wmdialerBluetooth.cab(Davey101).

This simply changes the color of HTC Sense Weather clouds (default white), by Light blue, Yellow or Red one.
Not useful but nice to see, especially on dark backgrounds.

For Manila 2.1 ROMs, take a look HERE.

Are you nostalgic and want to add a retro style to your Windows Mobile device?, XDA member knots created a slider for Manila/Sense 2.5 based on touchflo3D 2.0 black and white one.
All icons are present on this “classic style” slider that will give your UI a different look for your device.
Please report any bugs to the developer, so they can be fixed.

It is a well known fact that this forum has members from many countries around the globe. For those members using Arabian/Urdu as your main language, XDA member fehaan posted a tutorial on how to enable it on Windows Mobile devices.

You can easily turn ur wm6.5 to read & write in Urdu/Arabic while at the same time send/ receive text in the same.
P.S. This method may work on early Windows Mobile versions but I have tested on my WM6.5 K-JAM.
Download the attached zip file Urdu-Arabic Language Support for WM6.5.zip) and extract all its contents to desktop.
install the cabs in their numeric order (e.g. first file is numbered as “1.Language Support WM6.5.cab” so install it first and then the cab numbered “2.***”).
install other keyboards with urdu/Arabic support and copy the fonts-pack to Windows directory of your Pocket PC in case if u don’t see the urdu/arabic letters on Keyboard.
Please reply me for any confusions/guidance futher. and if it works, send me your wishes and regards here…

It’s that time of the year again, when you are home alone for your birthday. Well, do not worry because your Windows Phone has prepared a cake for you to blow out the candles when the time comes, because that is just how much it loves you and how much you should love it. To make it work, you simply need to blow into your device’s microphone and the candles go out when you apply enough air.
Inspired by the Wuvuzela app (and possibly by the announcement of Portal 2 at E3), I’ve developed a simple little application that allows you to blow into your phone’s microphone to blow out candles on a cake.
It’s very simple, and I’m no artist, but hopefully this can inspire some other ideas for this kind of application. Also, if anyone wants to make me an animated cake, let me know
Tested and working on my HTC HD2, but should work on other devices as well.
Let me know what you think/if you have any problems.
If you want something for your next birthday, try this new cake.

Black n White variation is in post three below……………………………..
This is a thread for variations of the excellent work of Bluemetalaxe’s iReflect icons. Right now there is three variations, each will have at least 500 plus icons so you can use them for just about all of your programs and applications. Blue worked very hard on the original icon set so if you want to donate to Blue here is his link to his original iReflect thread and his donation button:
I do not accept any donations and am only creating these variations for all to use as Blue was so kind to post this in his original thread:

Many people are currently searching for a new way to calm their WP7 envy, and here is a theme that will do it fr you. Created by XDA member Fireslave, the theme tries to pick up the upcoming OS’s experience on old technology. The update was not a major one, with very few changes, but these seem like a good reason for a update.
- New bing page
- Added wifi, bluetooth indicator and operator name on taskbar
- Improved notifications(Now they are centered)
- Fixed some problems with qvga and wqvga devices.
- Improved code (Great speed performance)
If you are itching for a new experience, then try out this theme.
Modifications such as Co0kie’s Home Tab provide you with a choice of lockscreens for your phone to use, but all can begin to feel a little over-familiar over time. XDA member spikegotti‘s SGXU Big Clock Lockscreen application replaces these tired layouts with something more stylistically appealing.
As the name suggests, the new lockscreen features a large and striking clock so you can easily check the time by peeking at your phone. The interface is completed by smooth translucent background effects and a simplistic slide-to-unlock key which is located at the bottom of the screen.
If you have a WVGA device you can test the lockscreen by downloading the .cab from the application thread.
