Ultimate Launch/HT Home problems with new ROM??

I had Ultimate Launch working absolutely perfectly in my Verizon XV6800 setup when it was running the stock radio & ROM.

Now, I flashed to 3.42.5 & dcd 3.2.6 which worked super in most ways (I get a 7 satellite GPS lock in about 4 seconds with all the GPS mods) but UL is giving me all kinds of problems.

I originally had my home screen in UL as the HTC Home plug-in & a bunch of program icons below that. With WM 6.1 etc, I installed the HTC 6 tab Home cab & soft reset, & the phone froze so hard I had to do a hard reset. I tried four times & the same thing happened every time.

At that point, I decided the hell with HTC Home, I will use Battery Status with the HTC Home skin instead. I thought that was working fine. I had BS at the top of the opening screen with program shortcuts under it, a 2nd tab with weather panel full screen & a 3rd tab with more program shortcuts. It looked & worked great until I did a soft reset. As soon as I did that, Battery Status refused to load (it gave an error about BT unable to initialize) & I never got it to work again inside UL.

I messed with UL for hours today & at one point, my system got so messed up from it that I had to hard reset again & then restore a BU I made early today with SPB BU.

I absolutely HATE to give up using UL, I paid for it & spent three weeks learning all the ins & outs of it.

If I could get either some version of HTC Home or Battery Status to work from within UL I would be all set. Does anybody have any advice for me?????

Re: Ultimate Launch/HT Home problems with new ROM??

Well, I have done a bunch more testing on this stuff. It didn't help me out much, but I figured I would post the results here as they may help someone else.

No matter what I did, I could not get the HTC Home 6 tab plug-in to work in the new WM 6.1 setup. I did a hard reset & immediately installed the plug-in as the very next step from a .cab file. As soon as I did that, the phone froze solid & has to be hard reset. I tried it more than once with the same result (does anybody know of a different version of HTC Home that might work better??).

I then installed Ultimate Launch which works, but will not load the battery status plug-in that I would like to use instead of HTC Home. Battery Status works fine by itself or with BS & weather panel together as the home screen, but simply will not load from within UL (that same setup worked perfectly with the stock Verizon radio & ROM).

My Home screen now looks like this:



& I think I'm going to leave it that way. I am really getting used to being able to see WP at a glance without switching anything & I have more available program memory than I would with UL running.

The system is running very clean & fast & the GPS works better than my standalone Garmin units (The phone can acquire a lock & start tracking in CoPilot Live 7 while the Garmin is still booting up).

~John

PS: I have two extra XV6800's sitting here & I can produce the exact same results on either one with the new radio & dcd ROM (which I LOVE by the way)

Re: Ultimate Launch/HT Home problems with new ROM??

Thanks Bro, I'll try it today.

I can do a hard reset & BU restore with my eyes closed at this point, so even if it doesn't work it's no big deal.

It pisses me off that Battery Status won't work as it looks just like HT Home if you use the correct skin & uses a LOT less memory to run..............

Re: Ultimate Launch/HT Home problems with new ROM??

caddieguy,

you're my hero..........

not only did that version of HTC Home work perfectly, but (& I can't explain this) it also fixed battery status to work right also.

now, I can use either one from within UL if I decide to. I need to run a bunch of testing now & see how bad these plug-ins kill the available memory in my Titan because I kinda like both of them.............
