to fix the Start menu background either go to Settings > TouchFLO and untick 'enable large Start menu'
or try this to replace the image with your own
hth


Thanks - that sorted it!!

Hey guys,
just tried doing the same thing with my mda compact 4, ie install the manila cab. Anyone else having problems with free space? After a huge cleanout all I can free up is 12mb!!!!! There is a 4gb storage which is barely in use, and i'm struggling to get a couple, lol.

Run the manila.cab file, (be patient..) it will restart the device,

Ok susd it...its quite simple....thanks to Killabie, for the manila.cab file. All u need to do to get rid of the pink and white of the MDA C4, is untick the TouchFlo 3D in settings\Today\items....Don't panic it will say u will loose Fav, etc. yes i guess so but so far so good for me i havn't lost anything that i sdon't know of....Run the manila.cab file, (be patient..) it will restart the device, go back to settings\Today\items and check the TouchFlo 3D, and hey presto....wicked HTC black...no more pink and white.. :D , u might want to restart after..... works for me...love the device :D

This is because TouchFlow 3D (aka Manilla) also didn't install, this is installed with the T-Mobile customization.See attachments for default Diamond TouchFlow 3D with HTC skin for WM6.1.

Install the CAB and theme and your done.

i tired installin the manila.cab on my mda compact 4 but i keep gettin error message " system doesnt have permission to install this file"

help i need to get rid of dis pink theme..... its horrible

The links still seem good to me. Can you retry?

You shouldn't need to open the cab, simply copy to your Compact IV and install as usual directly from there.

I just wanted to thank lillabie for posting the CAB and theme - I'd been banging my head against a wall trying to get rid of the damn t-mobile pinkness on my phone. It now looks and works so much better - so Thank You :)

I assume you are trying to remove the pinkness rather than install YouTube (as mentioned a little above)?

If you refer back to items #8 through to #13 in this thread you won't go far wrong!

The manila.cab file needs to be copied over onto your device and run from the device directly (double-click via File Explorer). It's possible that yor PC shows either TSK or CAB files as being iTunes related. Don't worry about that.

I think I also backed up my "HTC Black.tsk" (found in the Windows directory) before copying over the new version.
