Tweak Your Lumia WP8 Device with Lumia Registry Modifier

Back when Windows Mobile ruled the roost in the pre-iPhone days of yesteryear, registry modification was quite a common means of device tweaking. This should come as no surprise, as such modifications have been commonplace for quite some time on the Windows platform on traditional computers. This process then continued onto Windows Phone 7.

Thanks to efforts by XDA Recognized Developer snickler, this is now possible for Nokia devices running Windows Phone 8. A couple of important notes to keep in mind, however, are that in the current release only HKLM (HKey_Local_Machine) is accessible. The other limitation is that currently, users cannot change dword values. Because of the dword limitation, changes to MaxUnsignedApp will not be saved. That said, progress towards that end can be made through Recognized Developer GoodDayToDie‘s WP8 Native Access project.

Using the registry editor is extremely simple, as described by the developer:

To Read Values:

1) Put the Registry key in the first box (ex. SOFTWARE\Classes\MIME\Database\Codepage\1254
2) Put the Registry Value in the second box (ex. 1254)
3) Press Get Value.

To Set Values:

1) Put the Registry key in the first box (ex. SOFTWARE\Classes\MIME\Database\Codepage\1254
2) Put the Registry Value in the second box (ex. 1254)
3) Put the new registry value result in the Set Value box.
4) Press Set Value.

Head over to the original thread to get started with the registry tweaking.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
