Looking for profile switcher that is not a Today Plugin

I have tried all of the solutions out there to run TF3D and Phone Alarm at the same time and they each have their own issues.

SecondToday is buggy as hell and PA's integration does not automatically load TF3D at startup (small issue but it bugs me). I have been using a custom mortscript to simply run the manila.exe file on startup. It works great but TF3D will occasionally just unload itself automatically.

All I really need PA for is the automatic volume control switching. Anyone know of a utility that will do this that doesn't need to be loaded as a Today Plugin?

Thanks

Richard

PhoneWeaver is pretty good. Not free, though.

spb phone suite HAS a today plug-in, but you don't have to use it for it to work

Ah, ok. I was under the impression that both of those were only active when they were loaded as a Today Plugin. I will start playing with them. Free or not doesn't matter. I am happy to support good software.

Phoneweaver doesn't require a today plugin. It's a TSR type app and works very well. Just be sure to setup and test your profiles well and remember if you soft reset, the profile will "re enable" back to what it's set to.

I have to remember to "re-turn on my WiFi" since none of my preferred ones enable it when I want to use it.

Re: Looking for profile switcher that is not a Today Plugin

I used PhoneWeaver on my Touch. I just hit the camera button to bring up the on-screen menu. Worked great.

Now I don't have an easy button for that, but I'm looking into making the long-press power button open it up.

Re: Looking for profile switcher that is not a Today Plugin

There's a tool called manila switcher that switches between TF3d and the regular home screen so you can have the best of both. works quite quickly, but does have a few quirks.

Touch pro CDMA upgrades area, the thread with link is there.

+1 for SPB Phone Suite

Been using it for years - great app and does not have to be active on the today screen.

I have SPB Phone Suite..but haven't found out how to use the profiles from TF3D, e.g. from a shortcut on the TF3D Applications panel.

According to posts in the SPB Phone Suite forums, it can only be used from a Today plugin.

How do you guys get the profile list without the plugin? Thx!

Re: Looking for profile switcher that is not a Today Plugin

Wow I should get paid for advertising for these guys...Photo Contacts Pro from pocketx.net appears to be integrated into TF3d now, although I haven't been able to download the updated registered version due to some issue with handago.

I don't use TF3d much myself, but supposedly the new version fully supports VGA as well.
