OK I think I have most of it figured out now. But is it possible to open folders? Like if I want a link to the games folder?

:( nevermind I figured it out. You can just use file explorer to open the folder for you. like this

\windows\fexplore.exe; \windows\start menu\games

That opens directly to my games folder. SWEET!

That all I know, though if anyone has a working faded of the MS IE icon to use instead of the faded T-Mob hotspot one, I would love it.


Here's what I'm using... It's the same globe that's posted earlier but I removed the reflection since i'm using it on the left menu. I'm using the star for a second favorites menu for my favorite contacts... and I have the contacts photos trimed like the last image.

I created a cab file for people who don't want to mess with the registry. You can download it from here: http://freddyreyes.c...o...info&id=156

Just created a cab file with the basic "Template". You need to update the registry with your own values: phone numbers, pictures, etc.

You can download it from here: http://freddyreyes.c...o...info&id=164

Each contact will have a default photo and the numbers +555-555-1234 for cellphone and home.

After installation you need to go to HKLM\Security\cHome\CLinks3\Page"n" (1-5) and edit each value with your own data: links to your own pictures, numbers, etc.


loving the idea!!!
got it working no problem, thanks so much!!! one question tho, when i press the middle button, it doesnt directly call the number...
it sends me to a page that says "verify the number is correct" below is the number, it does give me the option to press the left soft key to call, but it wud be nice if it called directly when u press the middle button from the home screen
...is it supposed to work like this, or did i mess up somewhere??

Mine does the same. I tried to put '15#tel:17735551212' as that post said it was for shortcuts, but I would get an error. It would be nice to not have to confirm the number

The limitations of this method is the confirmation screen and that certain characters such as * and maybe # are not allowed, which prevents you from using some gsm commands. You just need to find an alternative dialer program that takes a phone number as a parameter. I did a quick search and found VJDialer (http://www.vijay555....es:VJPhoneTools), but I don't know if it works on smartphones. Give it a try. :)

gave it a try, it doesnt seem to work, as it seems to be a ppc only, doesnt even allow me to install it...
unfortunate, i liked the idea...

Using VJDialer I was able to make it work. Now you can just press "Select" to call any of your contacts. I put together a new cab file that installs VJDialer, Copy "Shortcut" files for your contacts and create the required registry entries.

You can download it from here: http://freddyreyes.c...o...info&id=164

After installation you need to go to HKLM\Security\cHome\CLinks3\Page(1-5) and edit each value with your own Pictures.

E.g. Under HKLM\Security\cHome\CLinks3\Page1, change "PICTURES" value from "\windows\CHome_Contact.png" to "\Storage Card\My Documents\Contacts\Lisa.jpg". Repeat the same procedure for Page2 and so on.

Go to \Storage Card\Program Files\Shadow Photo Dialer on your phone.
You will see 10 files with the name Dial_Contact(1-5)m.lnk (Mobile) and Dial_Contact(1-5)h.lnk (Home)

Using Total Comander you will need to modify the contact information for each of your contacts.

E.g. Dial_Contact1m.lnk should have something like 34#"\Storage Card\Program Files\Shadow Photo Dialer\VJDialer.exe" +555-555-1234. Just replace +555-555-1234 with the contact mobile number

Soft reset your phone and the new menu should appear.

Worth noting--- I could only get mine to work by changing the format of the phone number.

Example-

instead of the default +555-555-1234

mine would only dial the right number with 5555551234

No + or dashes

Bloody limey wanker!

Actually I don't like the generic app icon either but it was a quickie. Coming up with a generic globe was the better of the two projects. The hard part with the idea of a generic app is that most people just do a command window and that looks boring. I tried spicing it up but there's only so much you can do with a crap idea.

I'll work on it some more - and if you want some specific app icons for Neo, please ask.

I am looking for a file explorer icon, but I would also like to know how to create icons myself using photoshop.

Thanks!
