Following on from the runaway success of my SPV E650 de-Brand, I am now preparing the same for the MDA Vario III ;)

I'll be updating versions as I de-Brand various bits, but since you're an impatient lot, I figured i'd get SOMETHING out as quick as I could... so here is version 0.1 :wub:

Edit: Version 0.3 already online!

Included in version 0.3

- HTC Home plugin 'Launcher' pinkness replaced with the standard blue
- HTC Home plugin 'Profile' pinkness replaced with the standard blue
- Comm Manager pinkness replaced with the standard blue
- 'wnw' button reverted to standard Pocket IE, regular Pocket IE icon displayed in Settings -> Buttons applet
- Regular Camera icon displayed in Settings -> Camera applet
- Removed custom Start Menu ordering

To follow in future revisions

- Revert Start Menu layout and icons to standard

If you find any more branding that needs sorting, reply here :D

To install, run attached CAB on device. Version 0.1/0.2 users, just install this new version over the top.

It's not working for me...(installation was unsucessful)

would it be because I have already done the start menu ordering and W n W button myself??

Oh any chance of adding the GPS Camera regedit?

That's not a de-Brand, that's a tweak, so is in the tweak pack ;)

Ah cool, Ive got the debrand now, emailed it to myself from my work pc. ;)

Thing is, in the tweak pack, some of that has already been coverd by the T-Mobile customisation.

Does it cause any conflicts installing over the top of the Vario III?

Downloaded as a index.php for me too using PIE on my Vario III, a quick trip into total commander (the first thing I installed on the phone when I got it) and that was fixed and the cab installed. The HTC Home plugin looks so much better in the original colours. ;)

And the Web n Walk button now comes up with the error "Error starting \windows\start menu\messages\messaging.lnk" ;) :wub:
WnW doesn't appear in the buttons config page any more but the IE button does and changing that has no effect.

Guys, just ordered my Vario via T-Mobile so doing some prep work in advance ;)

Paul, can I do these tweaks on my Mac G5? Or do I need access to a PC?

Also, being totally IT illiterate, are these tweaks also know as a "de-brand"? Or is the de-brand totally different?

OK, this was actually to do with AEButton and not this, but the ringer icon is still pink!

Pinned! Getting somewhat lost amongst the other posts here. Don't forget to update this thread with the latest versions of your de-brander rather than starting a new one... mmmkay!

The only time I find the ringer icon is pink is when it is set to off. It is blue when it is on and when set to vibrate on my Vario III after installing the tweak pack.
