TP2 Tweaks

Here's a list of the tweaks and programs i've acquired since getting a wm phone, i'm using an at&t Tilt 2 running the stock ROM. If you have any good ones please post em up, can never tweak to much

Tilt 2 Tweaks:


Changing TF3D Search Provider:
HKCU/Software/HTC/Manila
dword=InternetSearchUrl
Change to=http://www.google.com/m/search/?q=%s=Google Mobile search page
Or=http://www.

Camera Tweaks:
going in to each one and making sure that the key "Enable" is set to "1"
Burst
Mobile Device\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\Camera\P6
Sports
Mobile Device\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\Camera\P8
Video Share
Mobile Device\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\Camera\P9

Change what it says on slider in lockscreen:
Under lockscreen in windows folder
In Ls_LockScene_480x800.cpr (adapt to your resolution) :
<Text ID="SlideToUnlock" Top="90" Width="480" Height="34" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="9" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Middle" InnerTextType="Resource" Text="shellresapps.dll,18149">
Replace "Resource" by "Literal" and Text="shellresapps.dll,18150" by Text="Slide me if you dare !" (or whatever you want to be displayed here) !
Same for the "TapOrSlide" section

Changing color of clocks in TF3D:
If you use the manila editor you can open and export the manila images as .png graphic files.
Export using save as, then open the .png in an image editor (eg photoshop) and make your changes. (or edit the red .png number files I posted above)
Adjusting hue/saturation is a quick way for novices to swap colours.
Save as .png, then replace the image in the manila editor.
Copy the _manila files that you changed to /windows [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Owner/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image001.gif[/IMG]

Title Bar Clock:
[HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\]
"ShowTitleBarClock"=1
"TBOpt"=1
you may need to create a new DWORD value for "TBOpt"

Opera in Task Manager:
Go to: HKCU\Software\HTC\TaskManager\ExclusiveList\System
There delete Opera9.exe (now it will show in the task manager)

To close opera by pressing the X-button instead of minimizing it follow these steps:
Go to: HKCU\Software\HTC\TaskManager\TerminateProcess
There, create a DWORD with the name Opera9.exe value "1"


To enable/disable web page optimization for mobile browsers in Google and Bing go to mobile site while in browser and click settings, then select/deselect option.

Disabling Push Internet:
"HKLM\Software\HTC\Manila\InternetPush\EnablePushI nternet" value="0"
"HKLM\Software\HTC\PushInternetEngine\Enable" value="0"
"HKLM\Services\PushInternetEngine\Flags" value="4"-----This Last D-word must be created

Best Mobile Web Sites:
m.mobile9.com

HD2 Tweaks that work for Rhodium:

Improve Suggested T9 Dictionary With Custom Words
The Leo has a very useful hidden application in the Windows directory. You need to unhide hidden system and Rom files in order to find it. Find the file "eT9MyWords.exe" in the Windows directory and add a shortcut to this file in your Windows/Start Menu folder.
When in the application, add the most common words you use when using the keypad such as names, locations, user names, email addresses and other words not common in the standard T9 dictionary. For example if you are based in London, UK you could add the following locations:

Enable LED Notification Setting in Sound and Notifications
If you want your LED to flash when you have a new message, missed call or voicemail.. well you can't as it is grayed out. However the following registry entries can be modified to enable them or use the cab at end of post. Reset after changes. Notification for Email sadly does not work
New Message:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\{A877 D65B-239C-47a7-9304-0D347F580408}]
"AvailableOptions"=dword: change to 15
Missed Call:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\{A877 D660-239C-47a7-9304-0D347F580408}]
"AvailableOptions"=dword: change to 15
Voice Mail:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\{A877 D661-239C-47a7-9304-0D347F580408}]
"AvailableOptions"=dword: change to 15

Real Exit for HTC Album

By default, when you click on the ok/X button in HTC Album, the app minimizes and does not exit. Make the following change to really exit the app and thus save some program memory: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\HTCAlbumv"ok_minim ize" = dword:0

How to Enable More Than 1 Hotmail Account in Email Tab
By default you can only check one hotmail account at a time. Here is how to enable more hotmail accounts.
1. Create a new email account.
2. In the email field write your email but replace the "@hotmail.com" with "@hotmail.con", this way the OS is not going to load Windows live messenger to sync your email.
3. Disable the option "Try to get e-mail settings..."
4. Select the email provider, in this case, Internet e-mail.
5. Complete the name and account display name
6. Incoming server: "pop3.live.com:995". Account type: POP3
7. Complete the form with your username and password. Note: the username is your full email address: "yourusername@hotmail.com" and not "yourusername".
8. Outgoing mail server: "smtp.live.com:25". Check the "outgoing server requires au...". Click on Advanced settings and check the "Require SSL..." for incoming ant outgoing e-mail.
9. Complete the rest of the setup.
10. Now, go to your email account and go to Tools > Options, once there, click on the email account you just created and click on "Edit account setup." NOTE: It might make you wait until it syncs 1 time.
11. Replace the "@hotmail.con" with the right one "@hotmail.com" and hit next 'till the end of the setup, and done.

Speed Up Music Album Loading on Reboot
After a reboot and you scroll to Music Tab, you have to wait quite a while for all the music files to be loaded. Now you can speed this up by making it load as soon as the phone starts and before reaching the tab. Go to your Windows folder and find the file "AudioManager_Eng.exe" Create a shortcut (.lnk file) of this file and put it in your Windows\StartUp folder.

Getting TF3D Music Player to Refresh:
Delete "AudioManager_Eng.vol" from Application Data/HTC/AudioManager_Eng, also delete any playlists as well (it might not let you delete the file but try, and then reboot afterwards)
Soft Reset

To select multiple files in File Explorer, simply use the small stylus keyboard and use the Ctrl or Shift button to select multiple files. In Total Commander, you can also use the "CTL" button on the bottom right of the screen.

Problems with Dusk Taskbar:
HTC Volume Control:
- If you have problem with HTC volume control, you may TRY in order the solution below (if the first doesn't work, try the next):
a) Install this HTCvolume icon fix.cab (uninstall it if it doesn't work or display wrong icons)
b) Go to your registry: HKLM/Software/HTC/VolumeOverlay and delete these regkeys: LoadIconFromResDLL & SoundIconLink (could not find this file)
c) Delete the htcvolumecontrol.dll from Windows folder.

Screen Lock Reg Edits:
HKEY_CurrentUser\ControlPanel\Backlight\[AutoDeviceLockEnable set to 1]
HKEY_CurrentUser\ControlPanel\Backlight\LockLevel\[LockLevel set to 1]

Start Menu Folders:
App Store
Applications
App Config
Documents
Extra Shit
File Managers
Games
GPS-Wifi
Internet Browsers
Multimedia
Music ID
Office Mobile
Phone Shit
Productivity
Search
Settings
Social Net
Task Managers
Tools
Tweaks
Utilities

Programs Installed:
Windows Mobile:
Marketplace


Android:
(All Android apps are free apps/versions)
3banana (notes application)
ACV
Apps Organizer (organize the today screen)
Auto Memory Manager
Bookmark Importer (imports from desktop browsers)
eWallpapers
Facebook (pretty good, not as nice as the iPhone app unfortunately)
Facebook Sync (sync contacts with facebook profile pics)
FMyLife Official (makes my day seem better…usually)
Girl Wallpaper (guilty pleasure)
Handcent SMS (much more pretty then the standard SMS app)
i Music
Maps (as in Google Maps)
Meridian (Noble Version its fancier)
Meebo IM (AIM, Facebook Chat, etc)
Movies
Music Search
Pkt Auctions eBay (better than the official eBay app)
Quickpedia (Wikipedia android style)
Ringdroid (make custom ringtones)
Shazam (always handy, and this one is free)
Toggle Settings (bluetooth, wifi, airplane, etc)
Zedge (really nice to get ringtones and wallpapers from)
Documents to Go (free addition only, if I need to edit something I can just go boot windows)

Renaming Android Start Screen Folders:
I wanted on my desktop. menu >> add >> folders. To rename them just open them and do a long press on the folder name. After that just drag and drop, I have found it is quicker to just open a folder instead of trying to navigate to different pages.

Cheers,
i actually am in the same mess u are, i got it working once, but had to HR and lost it, now i can't remember what i did to get it to work. whenever i get some time i'll see if i can fiddle with it again and figure it out, i'll let ya know the results. i might just ask one of the gurus here, they could probably figure it out faster and with less collateral damage than i
