__________________________________________________ __________________________________________

Update 13-Apr-2010:
Version 1.7.0 released. Uninstall the old version and soft reset before upgrading.
To prevent losing your settings and Quick Link assignments, use CHTEditor to back up before uninstalling, and restore everything when you install the new version.

Posts about v1.7.0 start from number 1915. Change log:
-[new] moveable and customizable home items
-[new] 6 clock layouts (including analog)
-[new] 2 or 3 quick links rows in main view
-[new] notification icons
-[new] customizable lockscreen with 3 unlock modes
-[new] more than 3 quick links pages
-[new] retractable slider
-[new] parameter support for button program links
-[new] automatic VGA mode detection
-[new] added voicemail notification
-[changed] position of more appointments indicator arrow
-[changed] adjusted 3x3 quick links layout
-[fixed] exchange policies related issue
-[fixed] bug with appointment range set to 1
-[fixed] miscellaneous smaller bugs

Notes on some of the new features:
-In the edit layout view the home items are movable. If you tap and hold in place you will get a pop up menu. Two different menus are available: one over a selected item and another one when nothing is selected.
-The max amount of pages depends on the quick links layout: 3x3 gets a maximum of 6 pages, 4x4 gets 5, 4x5 4 and 5x5 is limited to 3.

Requirements and Compatibility:
Manila 2.5 is required. The mod is not compatible with other larger Manila mods (like MaxManila). Smaller home tab mods (like transparency) and mods that don't affect the home tab are fine.
Manila subversion compatibility is as follows:

Compatible:
2.5.1920, 2.5.1921, 2.5.1922, 2.5.2011, 2.5.2012

NOT compatible:
Nothing for now.

To check your Manila version: go to the settings tab in Sense, select "About phone", and then "Software Information".
If you have any problems with this mod please report your full Manila version (e.g. 2.5.xxxxxxxx), the device and ROM you are using.
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________

Instructions:
Download the cab and run it on your device.
If you have a problem installing it, try turning off Sense (All Settings -> Today), installing the cab and then turning Sense back on.
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________

Performance:
For HD2 users: It was made for the HD2 and it should run nice and slick on it. But I do recommend installing Chainfire's HD2/Leo 3D Driver Patch - it's great.
For non-HD2 users: Keep in mind that this was primarily made for the HD2 and it will be slower on other devices. To improve performance you have options to: reduce the animation level and reduce the number of quick links pages.
General tip for more speed (both for HD2 and non-HD2): Disable full screen Weather animations: Tap to add a new Quick Link and add the "Weather Animation On/Off Switch".
It will then appear as a shortcut in your quick links, and can be used to quickly enable/disable weather animations.
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________

Frequently asked questions/problems:
Q: CHTEditor gives a version mismatch error.
A: Download and import this reg file. Then soft reset.
Q: HTC shortcuts have white icons
A: This can happen on some older manila versions. To resolve this, go to reg key HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila\ and set IsShortcutEnabled to 0.
Next, with file explorer, go to \windows\start menu\programs and delete the white HTC icons. Then, download this zip and extract the shourtcuts to \windows\start menu\programs.
Q: Date and Alarm are not transparent
A: Use this transparency mod.
Q: Will you mod the people tab?
A:No.

Known issues (will be fixed in a later version):
- on some devices/roms the advanced menu might not work
- some devices might not have all hardware keys disabled while locked
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________

Settings:
All setting can be changed using johncmolyneux's CHTEditor.

Background for all tabs compatible with this mod:
If you want the standard BG4all, see this post.
If you want high quality wallpapers, take a look at HDWall and HQ Wallpaper Patch.
Don't use both at the same time. It's BG4all OR HDWall.

It's not really recommended to do this, as it may be that Co0kie's Home Tab did not upgrade correctly, so there could be genuine conflicts between the editor and the home tab mod, but this is what the editor checks...

HKCU\Software\Manila\HTC:Co0kie.HomeVersion

Set that to 1.7.1 (the first 3 numbers of the version).

The editor will then run, but you need to remember that there could be conflicts. Make sure you export your settings regularly, just in case.

Have fun mate
