ok people good news!
just got the myFaves menu in the settings!!!!
for those of you who dont know what this means. let me just say its huge! normally whenever you wanted to add a contact, you would have to do it through a registry editor (in HKLM/Software/Microsoft/CHome/CMyFaves/0-4 and HKLM/Software/HTC/My5/My5App/Contact_0-Contact_4)
but ever since the update, it looks like Microsoft left the encryption data for the Pim Provider open!
That means we can access to the full UI and settings of myFaves without the actual Data plan (just like our old method of unlocking myFaves but this made it alot easier and actually gave us full access to the UI and much more in its registry)
many thanks to shllim for finding this for me. im scrapping the old tutorial for a new one (seeing as though i updated my phone to try this out. the only downfall to updating my phone is that i noticed the ROM has become alot more secure. and the tutorial i was about to release only left access to myFaves until the phone was either A)turned off, B)disconnected from the computer, or C)the phone was on over 2 minutes)
now there are problems when doing this. CHome is no longer on the Neo UI (meaning no more little house icon, no more date, etc. the time is still available on the upper right hand corner like it would be on any other myFaves view)
for those sceptics, i will be releasing a video of this in a week (in high def ^__^ i got a new camera lol $400 but well worth it!) and then a week later will be followed up with video tutorial on how to do it and perhaps a week later, a CAB file will be made for easy use and no registry editing needed. hopefully the XML inside the CAB can do this. im pretty sure it can seeing as though ive seen CAB files do so much more.
well thats pretty much it for now. for those lazy people (or those who dont like/suck at reading) here is a list of upcomming events:
2/18/08) News released (myFaves data 99% unlocked on new update. thanks Microsoft for leaving the Pim provider open lol)
2/22/08) Proof-Of-Concept video released
2/25/08) Video tutorial on how to do it
