Give Your WM Device A Taste Of ICS

November 10, 2011   By:

lesscroics40preview

There are several devices blessed with Windows Mobile out there that have the capability to run ports of Android with ease. These devices have severe hardware limitations when it comes to trying to simulate the user experience (no G-sensor, non-functional gps drivers, etc). Well, for those of you who have not made the jump over to a newer generation Android device and would like to have a similar experience to those who will get ICS, then check out the package that XDA member lesscro put together for you. ICS 4.0 combines not only visuals but also some functionality that will make you believe that you are no longer using a Windows Mobile device, but something that really closely resembles Android 4.0. This skin comes loaded with several features such as a 3D task switcher, a very nicely laid out launcher, and much more.

You need to keep in mind that this will only work on devices that are equipped with WVGA devices only (Touch Pro2, HD2, etc). You also need to understand that the new UI is still a work in progress and because of it, you may experience a bug or two. In any case, this is coming out nicely and if you still have a WM device, we strongly recommend you to try it.

AndroidEvent

Are you a fan of Android? Good. Are you a fan of the hit NBC series The Event? Even better. Now, thanks to XDA forum member zul8er,  you can combine your two passions in one glorious boot animation for your WVGA Android device that is sure to make your reboots a little less burdensome!

Making matters even sweeter, the developer has even provided two methods of installation–either as a flashable zip to be used through ClockworkMod recovery or a bootanimation.zip file that can be placed inside your /system/media folder.

This is a boot animation based on the TV show, The Event. Seemed like fun to make it have a Android theme.

This is a landscape boot animation, and has the dimensions of 480×800. If your screen size is different, you can change the desc.txt to reflect your screen size, or just ask me and I will do it.

Feeling like giving your boot time a little more flair? If so, please continue on to the original thread!

Super Meat boy windows mobile

If you are tired with so many Google-Android news, heres a breather. Our friend, XDA member zarpy presents another option on his series of simple graphic games for Windows Mobile. Just think of SuperMeatBoy:Saws of Death as a crossover between any classic Nintendo/Sega 2D platforming game. This is not your typical new video game, where everything is based on how well a polygon or a pixel looks. This game goes back to basics and brings you back to a 2D cartoonish world that makes you feel like you are playing a retro-based video game. You need to save SuperMeatBoy´s girlfriend from various dangers across 5 regular levels and a final boss stage. The game only works for devices with WVGA resolutions.
If you liked it, please leave some comments.

tiny wings windows mobile game

Although many of the site’s games developers have now turned to Android when planning their latest releases, there are still some going strong on the Windows Mobile front.

One such developer, XDA member zarpy, has recently released a brand new game for the platform – Tiny Wings Bounce. The addictive adventure sees you in control of a bird who’s too fat to fly properly, and instead relies on its ability to bounce in order to get around.

Tiny Wings Bounce was developed for Windows Mobile devices with a WVGA resolution screen. It features background music and sound effects, along with the option to save your high score so that you always have a challenge.

You can pick the game up for yourself by downloading the .cab from the game thread.

quietly-rooted

How many members have their Android devices rooted?, half? more?. For those who have it rooted and even if not, you must know about the boot screen most newer HTC devices have by default with the slogan “quietly brilliant.” XDA member Roland_D decided to play a bit with the gif file leaving instead “Quietly Rooted,” so every time you turn on your beloved device you´ll remember the day you made your warranty void :)
Designed for 480 x 800 resolutions.
Have a look and leave a comment.

home_gesture

Ahh… the HD2. Such a versatile phone, capable of such a wide array of possibilities. If you thought that things for this device couldn’t get any better, you may want to check out what XDA member windroidHD made for us. The dev was tired of using the hardware buttons on the HD2 to go back, home and such, so he decided to create an app to get rid of the need of using them. zMooth allows you to use gestures in order to perform the same functions as these 4 buttons. The app basically becomes a small square in the bottom of the screen. In there, you simply swipe your finger in a certain way, and it will perform the action assigned to that particular hardware button.

If this looks interesting, please head over to the thread and install the app. Please leave any feedback regarding bugs and suggestions.

Just finished publishing zMooth gesture app in android market, it will allow you to use gestures to mimic back, home and menu hardware keys.

I wrote this app to be unobtrusive by using minimum amount of screen space but at the same time be very easy and intuitive to use. If you use for couple of days you will understand how easy it is to use.

touch tools

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

tp2

If you have a Rhodium, you must be aware of the lack of HD quality on Youtube. Well, now thanks to XDA member Wild Child that problem is fixed. We normally do not cover ROMs on our articles but this time due to the importance of the fix included on the developer´s work, we thought it would be worth pointing it out. Four different ROM´s can be found on the original thread and all of them having HD Youtube fixed. This is one of the first cooks including it and sure other developers will follow suit, so no more complaining about the bad video quality on your device!.
As always, please leave your feedback.
