Due to the popularity of my similar threads for other devices, I thought i'd rustle up a list of my favourite free software installed on my X1. All IMHO, YMMV etc. ;)

Enjoy!

in no particular order...

HTC Diamond keyboards - decent SIPs for your X1 - htc_ezinputxt9.cab

HTC Enlarge Start Menu - actually enlarges both the start menu and the normal menus for finger friendliness.

I have a swedish Xperia and the enlarged startmenu installs the english shortcuts to programs and settings, how do I remove them? The swedish shortcuts are still there, but they are at the top of the menu and the english shortcuts are at the bottom.

The english shortcuts don't work.

Thanks for a great list!

:lol:

How i can extract the Enlarged Start menu from the Diamond/Touch Pro Rom. My Touch Pro have a german Enlarged Menu, but on my XPERIA work the Enlarged Start Menu, but with Programme an Einstellungen and Programs and Settings. And in German i must replace the Programs with Programme and the Setings with Einstellungen. In the Registry i don't found the Settings. Only the Touch Commander works in German. You can the other Programs by the Installation make disable and you install only the Touch Menu. in the Settings from the Pocket PC is a Icon, there you can change the options. The Touch Menu from Touch Commander shows the icon in 2 lines. The Icons are very big to touch with Fingers.

But i prefer the HTC Enlarged Menu, but don't works. Sorry for my bad english i am german

after looking again the german "programme" and "einstellungen" (our versions of programs and settings :lol: ) are in the list but they are on top and settings and programs do nothing, probably because they want to open paths that don't exist in non-english versions.

But i don't understand, my HTC Touch Pro with German, has a german Enlarged Menu with german Programme and Einstellung.

Can another people extract this german Enlarged Menu from Manila???

The enlarged Start Menu in english, that i have froh the top downloaded, is also a part of Manila 2D/3D, but the old enlarged menu, that works on my HTC Touch, works only on QVGA Devices oder not on WM6.1. i have try to install this on my XPERIA but don't work, i have changed the Enlargedmenu.dll.409.mui or enlargedstartmenu.dll.0409.mui to 407 and after restart i can go in Einstellungen/Perönlich/Enlarge Start Menu and can activate deactivate the big Start Menu, but nothing is happen ...???

I installed Remote Desktop, but whenever I click 'Connect', I get an error saying 'An internal error has occurred' with the heading 'Connection status'.

Any help? B)

EDIT: I should also point out that I can RDP via my desktop PC to the same server with no problems.

Hi Paul,

just thought you want to update the SIP software from Diamond to Touch-HD/Blackstone one. The landscape support will be better since both X1 and HD are both WVGA.

Copy to anywhere on your device and run them from file explorer on the device itself...

whenever I click 'Connect', I get an error saying 'An internal error has occurred' with the heading 'Connection status'.

I have the same thing... Vodafone UK ROM, not flashed yet as I've just spent 2 full days setting everything up!

So, does anybody else have the same problem? Know of a solution? Is there a later version of Remote Desktop available?

UPDATE: This only happens when connected over Wi-Fi, when connected over HSDPA, you get the usual 'can't connect / network error' message - so I assume that

1. Vodafone is blocking RDP connections over their data connection (really annoying!) and

2. The Vodafone ROM restricted access connections that apply to Windows Live also apply to remote desktop (i.e. you can only connect over the Vodafone data connection rather than over Wi-Fi, etc)

Many thanks for your patience.

Cheers,

Scooter

You should see a file with .cab extension inside the RAR archive. Extract that file out and then copy it over to your device via Activesync. Then using File Explorer on the device, navigate to the folder where you put the CAB file in. Tap on it and the installation process will start.

Ok guys i'm completely new to both WinMo and this forum. I just got rid of my Nokia E71 for an Xperia and have trouble installing flash on the device. Can someone point me in the right direcetion on learning how to install cab files period? The only experiance i have is using Handango, and that was autonatic once i synced my Xperia with the computer. Also how does this copying to phone thing works? I read a couple threads back about downloading file, extracting it, and copying it to phone. A thread containing step by step procedures on installing software manually (unlike automatic Handango) would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Yoshin,

Briefly, you extract the .CAB file if necessary, copy it to your phone using Activesync, then find and run the .CAB file on you phone using File Explorer or some other file manager of your choice. That will install whatever app/game the .CAB file is for.

If you need more help than that, just ask.
