If you are a lucky owner of the last Windows Mobile device, the powerful HD2, this will be of your liking. XDA member Laurentius26, who is well know for his ROMs on several devices, has managed to add landscape and auto rotate support for phone canvas. Currently in beta version, the dialer still has some minor bugs to be fixed but it´s fully usable. The developer credits to Ultrashot and Cracing as this was a team work.
Step in and leave your feedback as it´s very important in order to fix the bugs.

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.

Can’t get enough HTC when your phone is turned on and want to add some HTC flair (no, not Flar) in the form of a boot animation as well? No problem! Thanks to XDA forum member cypis, we now have two wonderful sets of boot animations meant to fill your Desire for HTC (pun intended). Hit the break for more details!

Remember the Android vs Apple boot animation we presented a couple of weeks ago? Perhaps you’re a CyanogenMod 7 user who likes the idea of having a new boot animation, but wants to stick with something a little closer to home. Thanks to XDA forum member Six6Sicks, we now have two new options to spice up our otherwise-boring boot sequence.
Installation is relatively painless and basically consists of replacing the bootanimation.zip from your /system/media folder. This should work on all WVGA Android devices.
Be sure to continue to the original thread if you’re feeling adventurous and want to appease your sense of style.

We love our hobbies, whether it be sports, electronics, or both. What better way to show the combined loved than by merging one into the other? XDA member lnando84 shares his creations for all NFL fans out there. The dialer skins feature your favorite NFL team logo in the background as well as re-designed number buttons to match the style. These are only good for WVGA devices like the HD2 and Touch pro 2, running Windows Mobile 6.5 and up. Please do not try to install them in devices with lower resolutions as they will mess up your device, likely forcing you to reflash your current rom or performing a hard reset. He has also included some extra dialpads for those of you who live with the Christmas spirit, as well as a few miscellaneous ones for those with a need to simply change the look into something less fan-ish.
Please leave some feedback and maybe some requests if you have any.
I want to start off by saying I’m a HUGE Philadelphia Eagles Football Fan!! I have a thread in the TP2 themes and apps section for NFL dialpads skins I’ve made for all 32 teams over the past few months. I’ve been asked/told I should start a thread here for all my dialpad skins because they also work on the HD2. I’ll be adding preview’s as well as download links to them below. Let me know if anyone runs into any problems when running these. I’ll also try taking on a few requests so let me know what you guys are thinking..
You can find more information in the skins thread.

If you’re a fan of the Android look on the HD2, but you’re not really sure you want to take the leap and put Android on your device, why not try out XDA member MrBeOTP2 Android look on your beloved phone first?
The XDA member has taken the refined look from Android’s latest sweet, Gingerbread, and applied it to the Windows Mobile taskbar, keyboard and dialer forming part of the Windroid series of themes.
The cab files are compatible with WVGA devices running Windows Mobile 6.5.x (WM 6.5 is not currently supported).
For more screenshots including the keyboard and dialer, and to download the cab files, take a look at the theme thread.

Still using the wonderful Windows Mobile? Then, you may remember ActionScreen. XDA member Skrobel was tired of the lack of support for landscape, so he decided to develop a 12-icon ActionScreen that supported that orientation. The latest version has a fixed SW_MINIMIZE, so that the app minimizes instead of going to the background. Moreover, it now supports non-Sense interfaces (Today Screen and Titanium tested). Working on WVGA resolutions only.
Please leave feedback for the developer.

[APP][13.02.2011]ActionScreen w. Landscape support v0.3 WVGA[Developers please help]
I liked the idea of an ActionScreen ever since I met with this program for a first time (it was on a Sense 2.1 stock ROM so it was really handy).
But as I am a Rhodium owner, I always had problem with Landscape orientation. The Smaberg’s ActionScreen was showing only 2 rows of icons in Landscape or wasn’t showing at all. So with the encouragement by Jackos I started to develop my own application based very much on the original idea of the 12-icon ActionScreen from Smaberg. As I am definitely not a programmer I started to learn Basic4PPC for a starter. Then, after I discovered how many environment restrictions it gives I switched to C#.
What I present here is a preliminary version which has full Landscape support (the app will run without problems in Landscape and will change it’s layout properly even if there will be an orientation change while program is shown).
* NEW * – The whole app has been rewritten from scratch. Also changed to the C# + NetCF as I thought it will solve most of my memory problems…

My theme for windows mobile releasing it on DeviantArt.
The theme is based on a bunch of things i’ve seen on the internet. It’s basically a cleaner, more vibrant version of sense. Though it’s colors are very limiting I was somehow able to manage it to stay high quality w/o reducing it’s form.
Enjoy the preview releasing it today for Sense. =)

XDA member zarpy presents another simple game for your WVGA resolution Windows Mobile device. In Kirby’s Run, you need to collect the coins to make your weapon fire, you have two choices: Gray Kirby who will gets fireball power and pink Kirby who will get sword power when he collects the coins. The developer gives some tips for the game:
1) For beginners the pink kirby might be better because the sword weapon stays with you until it collides with enemy.
2) For the most part dont aim for king dede becuase he will probaly jump over your sword and fireball attacks.
3) Each coin you collect is worth 1,000 points plus reloads your attack. After you use attack you need to collect another coin before you can attac again.

Images now fill the whole space.
And the potential for the initial contact crash is fixed.
And the skinning can use pngs with transparency.
And it should be installable to the storage card now.
I developed an app to add the facebook pic to outlook contacts.
Sense 2.5 automatically adds images to your device to be used for your contacts in Sense.
But, the image is not added to your outlook contacts.
I went through the threads that it suggested before creating this thread.

XDA member zarpy presents this simple funny game for your Windows Mobile device. Free Dead Space is a classic game in where you need to maintain yourself alive when trapped on a space station until help comes to get you. Get ranks and advance on the levels gaining points but beware, enemies will come to you faster and faster every level. These are some tips recommended by the developer:
1) When the enemies land on the ground they move towards you. So if you haven’t fired a shot move quickly out the way.
2) When your rookie status changes to killer the enemies move faster. Sometimes fire shots in between moving back and forth.
3) Try to look for patterns in the enemy movements , it helps later on when they are coming faster.
This game is working only on WVGA devices. If you liked it, please leave some feedback.
