1- DUSK Taskbar ~ tacchan23 edition

Info:

- credits and special thanks to grzegorz10 for one of the most beautifull taskbar ever made and for giving me the permission to modify it

- WM 6.5.x and 6.5

- (W)VGA - also (W)QVGA for few versions only

- Best used along with one of my Themes below

- Before installing anything remember to install SDKCERTS.cab from Here Without this the taskbar may not work! (usually not needed for cooked roms)

Bluetooth:

- Not needed anymore to use the BTIconNotifier.exe on Omnia2. I found the OEM .dll file (from Samsung) which contains the BT icons for Omnia2 and, after replacing the icons there, I added it to my taskbar cabs.

- The BtIconNotifierDusk is needed only for some phones which can't display the Bluetooth icon correctly and istead display the standard WM icon (before using it, try if it works without the fix)

HTCvolumecontrol:

- If you have problem with HTC volume control, you may TRY in order the solution belows (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)

:) Go to your registry: HKLM/Software/HTC/VolumeOverlay and delete these regkeys: LoadIconFromResDLL & SoundIconLink

c) Delete the htcvolumecontrol.dll from Windows folder.

d) Send me the original (means u have to uninstall any custom taskbar first) htcvolumecontrol.dll from your ROM and I'll try to fix it.

WindowsLiveMobile:

If the icon while reciving a message doesn't display properly (stock WinMo icon), it means you are using a different version of WLM than the one skinned in my taskbar. Download here the WLMMessengerResources.dll for the version you are using (or try them both if you not sure which version of WLM you have) (WLMMessengerResources.192.dll is for VGA; WLMMessengerResources.96.dll is for QVGA)

DuskBlue Taskbar

yes, but it would overwrite an existing .dll file anyway. So you couldn't use it along with any other custom taskbar (only with the default WinMo taskbar)

Hmmm. Some incompatibility with the 3G/1x and signal strength icon on my i920. Any idea how to resolve it? I still have the stock icons showing. Probably a GSM/CDMA issue? Thanks for the post. Looks nice.

I made the taskbar to complete my theme (v7) with more bottom bar icons, so I hope everything is working well togheter.

But any feedback is appreciated as I could have missed something! (as well as any help in making some icons I made to look better and on par with the original Dusk taskbar^^)

About CDMA, honestly I have no idea how that works... I'll try to have a look at it but any pointer would be nice such as which icons aren't working exactly and if there are any more/different icons in CDMA than GSM (also a link to a custom 6.5.x taskbar working well on CDMA)

Link to a working modified dusk taskbar for CDMA. I like your icons better though, especially the battery icon. If it's too much trouble to fix, no problem.

Link to the page with signal fix cab. Might help narrow down what exactly is fixed. About to install it to see if it works for this as is.

Note the network status (1x/3G) icon and signal strength/data connection icons are still stock. Thanks.

I'll have a look at it during the weekend and try to fix my taskbar.

Glad you liked the battery, it was a lot of work :)

I just installed the taskbar fix from that thread. Locked my phone up on boot. Whoops. I'll look through some of the dll's and let you know if i come across the right one.

You sure it's not working at all? I found another CDMA taskbar and it looks exactly the same as the fix you linked me above

It apparently works for someone. Looks like primarily TP2 CDMA. And to correct, the fix didn't hang my device, just prevented the today from loading the today for a couple of boots, and the icons weren't fixed. I didn't try installing the entire taskbar cab, just the fix cab. That may have something to do with it. I'll try the entire install file later today.

I can't copy out my .dll files to look through them. I'll see if I can find someone who has them, unless you know a way to copy protected files out of ROM?

I tried to recab the fix myself (changing some icons too) but I guess the result will be the same if it's device related. Anyway I attach it if someone wants to try it at his own risk.

Also I attach a small app to extract protected files from ROM (u need to uninstall any cabs which modified the protected file first, in this case the CDMA fix itself)

K. I'll give it a try. Let you know in a minute.

Didn't work. Booted fine so no issues there, but the icons are still stock. I'll give the file extractor a go and see if I can't track them down. Thanks.

It does uninstall fine.

Hey tacchan, I've been through a bunch of the .dll files (the most common ones plus a bunch of others) and I can't find them. I'll keep slowly going through the rest over the next couple of days (there's quite a few). You have any recommendations on what to look for? I'm using Resource Tuner to view. Once I've been through all of them (takes a while to extract one at a time) I'll post a copy somewhere if you want to have at em.

After you installed the cab there was no change at all in the icons? it should change just the signal icon, not the 1x icon

Anyway if you can try to extract the CDMA_RSSI_PPC.dll from your ROM I can have a look at it

Right, no change to either icon. And I don't have a CDMA_RSSI_PPC.dll. There isn't anything that's screaming "signal icons here", unfortunately. That surely would have been one of the first ones to check. I'm on 23518 build if that matters/helps.

If you have any idea about what size the dll should be i can send a few right around that size too...

Also, what files hold the current dusk icons and I'll make sure I check those. I still haven't run across any taskbar icons.

Those all the .dll files used for custom taskbar

- phcanOverbmp.dll

- outres.192.dll

- shellres.192.dll

- tapres.192.dll

- tshres.192.dll

- CDMA_RSSI_PPC.dll

the 1X icon is in the tapres.192.dll but all other signal icons are in the CDMA_RSSI_PPC.dll (at least for other phones...)

Did you look for the CDMA dll file with the ROMextractor app? or with file manager? If it's really not there, no more idea what to do...

Could u try to add this to your registry? (and install the cdma fix again)

And check if you have the following dll file: OverrideRssi.dll

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]

"FuncDll"="CDMA_RSSI_PPC.dll"
