Transparent Background When Switching Tabs in Sense

Transparent Background When Switching Tabs in Sense

Since the evolution of HTC’s TouchFLO interface into ‘Sense’ with the introduction of the Android and Windows Mobile 6.5 platforms, this site has gained even more support for tweaks and modifications to how the home-screen replacement looks and behaves.

Although posted a few months ago, XDA user antoniomistretta (with help from degake) has found a way to remove the dark background that is shown when you swipe your finger to change tabs in Sense for Windows Mobile. As many users appreciate a transparent look in various aspects of their phone’s operating system, this tweak is sure to appeal to some of the XDA community.

To install the modification, simply download the .cab from the modification 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.
