Change your Sense Weather’s Sun and Moon to Other Planets

Change your Sense Weather’s Sun and Moon to Other Planets

XDA member Jaguaralani has recently released a neat modification  for HTC Sense that should make any undercover, Windows Mobile-toting alien feel a little less homesick. As you may have guessed from the title, the ‘Jaguaralani PLANETS’ mod allows you to alter the stock Sun and Moon images for the Home and Weather tabs in the more recent versions of Manila.

Available in the provided selection of well rendered Sun replacements are all of the planets in our solar system, along with Pluto, and even a new take on the conventional Sun image that you’d normally find on your device.

Using the modification, you can also change the Moon image, which is displayed if you update your device’s weather information during the night time. Alternative designs for the Moon animation are also provided by Jaguaralani, which include glossy and cartoon variants.

Each planet is available as a separate .CAB and they should work on any Windows Mobile device with HTC Sense 2.5 installed.

You can find more information in the mod thread.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
