T-mobile TP2 TF3D defaults to IE

The T-Mobile TP2's TF3D defaults to IE as a browser well IE sucks and I was wondering if someone could explain what needs to be done so that the T-Mobile TF3D works just like the unbranded TF3D does using Opera as the default browser.

As a side note I am wondering if anyone knows how to make Flexmail the default email client for TF3D and if its possible for TF3D to pull the email account info from Flexmail

thank you

Talking Re: T-mobile TP2 TF3D defaults to IE

Okay after messing around with this myself for a little bit I figured it out it is not only a registry entry but you also have to configure another file so i am going to go over what i did for others out there looking to do the same thing

First I started messing with the registry on my device I figured out that if you go to
"HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila" you will find a reg key that says "DefaultBrowserIsIE" with a value of 1. If you delete that and add a new key that says "DefaultBrowserIsOpera" with a value of 1 any time TF3D would open a browser window for additional information it will use Opera (example on the weather tab if you hit the link at the bottom that says "More Detail Online" before it would open IE now it will open Opera) however if you use the search in the Internet Tab (side note in that same registry folder you can edit the "InternetSearchUrl" key to reflect your favorite search engine when using the search bar on the Internet Tab) or click on the bookmarks there it will still Open IE. To fix this you got to "\Application Data\Manila" in that folder you will find a file named "InternetPortal-en-us.xml" what I did was pull that back to my desktop unchecking the read only file attribute and opening it in notepad. When you open the file it will look something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>
<InternetPortal>
<BrowserExe>\Windows\iexplore.exe</BrowserExe>
<IncludeUserFavorites>False</IncludeUserFavorites>
<Banner
DefaultImagePath="\Windows\HTC\Assets\Images\Inter netPortal\banner.qtc"
SelectedImagePath="\Windows\HTC\Assets\Images\Inte rnetPortal\banner_selected.qtc"
Text="Launch Browser"
NavigateUrl="http://web2go.com"
UrlText="web2go"
Width="480"
Height="215" />
<OperatorLinks>
<Link
Text="YouTube"
Executable="\windows\youtube.exe"
ImagePath="\Windows\HTC\Assets\Images\InternetPort al\youtube.qtc" />
<Link
Text="CNN"
NavigateUrl="http://tmobile.cnn.mlogic.mobi"
ImagePath="\Windows\_Bookmark_icon.qtc" />
<Link

NavigateUrl="http://m.espn.go.com/wireless/index?z=TM"
ImagePath="\Windows\_Bookmark_icon.qtc" />
<Link
Text="Facebook"
NavigateUrl="http://m.facebook.com"
ImagePath="\Windows\_Bookmark_icon.qtc" />
</OperatorLinks>
</InternetPortal>

The thing you want to change here is "<BrowserExe>\Windows\iexplore.exe</BrowserExe>" instead you want it to be "<BrowserExe>\Windows\OperaL.exe</BrowserExe>" (side note you can also change what web page opens up when you tap on the large globe by editing the " NavigateUrl="http://web2go.com" " line and the " UrlText="web2go" " line mine point to google). Once you edit the file save it and recheck the read only file attribute and move it back onto your device over writing the existing file. Restart the device and everything is Opera.

Hope this helps out other people feel free to rewrite it to make more sense lol.

Re: T-mobile TP2 TF3D defaults to IE

its been working on mine since i figured it out yesterday with no issues if your concerned about what it might do to the phone just back up the InternetPortal-en-us.xml and if something doesnt work you can just throw the old one back in and add the old registry entry back in

let me know if it does work i am interest in finding out if this also works for other people
