Panels on Touch HD - installer!

120 posts in this topic

I've been having a play getting Panels running on the Touch HD, and thought i'd put a CAB up of my efforts so far... i'm working to make the experience even better... consider this EARLY BETA! B)

What's hot...

- It works
- No 'Panels' button the HD of course, so you get a Panels icon on the start menu
- Performance of the actual panels is great
- It works
- AppToDate support for future updates

What's not so hot (yet)...

- It takes a few seconds for the panel select app to open
- The FM Radio and Media Xperience panels don't work properly on the HD (is the FM Radio panel outputting via extUSB?)
- The TouchFlo 3D plugin has to be disabled or pressing the home key returns you to TF3D (working on fix)

What's coming up

- Speed boost!
- Option to map to hardware button
- Requests?

What you need to do to install

- Disable TF3D from Start -> Settings -> Today -> Items
- Install main CAB from below
- REBOOT
- Run Panels from the start menu to choose panel
- Optionally install additional panels from the links below

Downloads

- Main install: http://www.apptodate.org/panels-blackstone.cab
- Media Xperience Panel (not working on HD correctly): panel_media.cab- FM Radio Panel (not working on HD correctly): panel_radio.cab
- SPB Mobile Shell, Facebook, Dashwire, WMLive and more Panels at SonyEricsson.com: direct link

Enjoy! B)

The weird thing is the radio panel appears to work. I wonder if it's just outputting sound via extUSB rather than the 3.5mm port?

Paul,

I trust you know you're duplicating the efforts of someone over at XDA devs (not to say this is a bad thing)

Yeah, I did see that... had a look this morning and there was nothing to download, so figured i'd have a play. No harm IMHO as you say... since I had an already package-split dump of the X1 and a real X1 it wasn't too much bother to have a snoop around... B)

At which point?

P

Each time when I select a panel B)

The panel zooms and then the panels stays on the screen (fe with wrong time or place - the clock panel) and nothing happens. options and update softkeys do not respond...

It works for me, apart from the facebook panel (which is also known not to work on the xda-devs version). I haven't tried the ones Paul says don't work.

I doubt I'll continue to use it in it's current form, but it's a good proof of concept!

Doesn't work for me. I've got an error when REBOOT: cannot open file PanelManager. Digital sign error.

Edit: if I go in Program\PanelManager\panelmanager.exe

it works...

How do I go out from a panel and go in another one??

OK, so this first version seems to take issue on non english ROMs?

To choose another panel just run the panels icon again...

MMM... ok but if select the panel with the clock, I cannot select, after, another panel... each time I go in Start-Panel it open's the clock one... I had to kill the process with SKtools

It didn't happen with the "fish" panel...

Other problem: I installed google.cab and facebook.cab but I don't see them when I open the panel loader... ok... found out!! You have to select theme in the manager

Ok my report for you:

First at all: ITALY TIM ROM.

I downloaded all the panel you linked here and facebook from SE:

- If I select a panel and then i close it, then I select a second panel... it doesn't work no more, or at least it turn back to the last panel loaded;

- facebook panel doesn't work. I launch it, he connect his self... but then nothing happens;

- google panel work but loads internet explorer instead of opera.

...and for now it's all
