Registry Tweaks for Titan

I am looking to fix a few items in my prov file, but they seem to elude me. I know how to do this normally, but would like to be able to set them in the registry.

I took a snapshot of the registry before and after I made these changes and did a comparison. I didn't find any differences between them that would go into a provisioning file.

Hopefully someone here can help:

1) I would like to have the date NOT shown on the today screen

2) I would like for my device password to be set in the prov file and set to 15 minutes

3) Is there a way in the cab manager to auto select "English" in weather panel. This way I could avoid having any user intervention during install.

4) When opening pictures & video, is there a way to default to the storage card for viewing instead of the device?

5) Set the camera to superfine

Thanks

Do not need to edit registry for this,, simply go to "Start/settings/today/items/ uncheck date....."

Dont have to edit registry for this either,,, just "Open camera, click the monkey wrench on the bottom left, then click the icon that looks like a person in a picture frame with a wand, click quality, change to superfine... click ok, and your done..."

On this I did find a few things in the registry that may be for this,,, Not sure though,, but as it is late at night, I decided not to try them yet,,,
but a little tip is,, since it is opening "my pictutres" folder,,, then just doing a registry search for "pictures" and sifting through them would maybe get you close to what your looking for...

Dont quite know what you are talking about here....

3) Is there a way in the cab manager to auto select "English" in weather panel. This way I could avoid having any user intervention during install.
And again,, Im opting out of answering this one due to too much vagueness,, if you might clarify a little what you are looking to do then Ill try to help...

1) You'll need this:
<characteristic type="HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Today">
<parm name="AutoSingleLineDatePlugin" value="1" datatype="integer" />
<parm name="Date" value="0" datatype="integer" />
<parm name="Enabled" value="0" datatype="integer" />
</characteristic>

2-5) Yes, but I don't have these handy. If no one posts them by 6PM eastern when I get off work, I'll look them up.

1) The state of all your today items can be found at..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Today\Items
Except for date, that's the Date=0/1 that's one key up.

2) Dunno where that's stored.

3) WeatherPanel settings are stored at..
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MarsWare\WeatherPanel
Set it up how you like it and then export that key.

4) Don't know.


5)Preferences get stored in a blob for some camera options..
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\Camera\<insert camera version>\Values

So yes, changing the values in the registry is important.

Seriously, would someone really come on here and ask how to remove something from their today screen? or how to change a setting on their camera? Any moron could do that. What i need to do is find the registry setting for those changes so that wheen i flash to new roms, my provisioning xml file can slip these entries into the registry. I took a snapshot of my reg before and after i made these changes and i can not find a difference. my provisioning files are 6 pages long with different tweaks and setup for multiple accounts and applications. it all works perfectly with the exception of the items listed above.

Ah nice.

Funny enough, I just grabbed my today folder from the reg and those values were not in there. Guess that is why I couldn't find them.

Thanks!

This actually does not have anything to do with the registry. i should have been more clear, especially since I titled this thread Registry tweaks... hehe

What i would like to do is edit the installation cab itself so that i could auto select English. Then when i run my UC script, WeatherPanel won't require any user input to complete the installation. As it sits right now, when I install weatherpanel, it halts instalation and asks which language package to install. For some reason, this halts my sdconfig file and crashes my device. i was looking for a workaround but there might not be one.

It was a shot in the dark.

I believe he is looking for a different registry key, which I'm not sure where it is just yet.


I bumped this because I too am looking to change this.

Bascially when you create an email and choose insert -> picture it defaults to the pictures folder on the device. I'm looking to change that to the picture folder on the storage card.

This is the same folder that I have my camera set to store pictures in by default; but it is a different setting altogether.


Anyone know where this is off the top of their head?
