UPDATE #5 ONLY WORKS FOR WORLD WIDE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ROMS

UPDATE #4 FULLY WORKING
Apologies to all! Never use a rubbish W2K machine to build a ZIP file. Every file seemed to be damaged somehow. I have now hard reset my phone and tested build by downloading file and following my own instructions and it all works.

UPDATE #1

I have been going through what programs are needed, not needed and programs that can be relocated and Manila 2D still work with improved memory.

NOT NEEDED
04.Album_Video_fix.cab (YouTube Video Fix - YouTube App doesn't work)
11.YouTubeQVGA 1_5_1819_1531.cab (Doesn't Work)
05.Task_Manager_2.1_34837.5.cab
08.Audio_Booster.cab (Don't Work)
09.Fullscreen_Player_1_05_080828_0.cab (Makes No Difference)

CAN BE INSTALLED ON LARGE INTERNAL MEMORY
12.GoogleMaps_compressed.CAB (Still needed to use Maps widget)

After doing this I was left with much improved memory running M2D :

STORAGE MEMORY : 20.46mb FREE
PROGRAM MEMORY : 46.73mb FREE
________________________________________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________

This is one of the best UI's for the Omnia to date and it runs extremely well. This is the latest M2D from herg62123 on xda-developers.

Here is my guide to getting Manila 2D working on a Samsung Omnia i900.
Landscape does not work and neither does the YouTube App.

Sorry forgot to add I have only tested this on i900DXHI3

You might want to rationalize the programs afterwards as when your done you will only have about 5mb storage memory left. I got rid of the YouTube Stuff.

I did not have any involvement in the development of the programs I have attached. Thank all the guys at XDA-Developers for their hard work.

1. Hard reset your device if you can (not compulsory but advisable)

2. Move the DiamondQVGA.tsk and Hh_fw_background.png in the "Files" folder to "My Documents" on your device

3. Go to "Settings" then "Today" and select "DiamondQVGA" theme

4. Open "Hh_fw_background.png" located in my documents on your device and set as "Today Background"

5. Disable any Items in the Today Settings

6. In the Manila folder install file "1". All CAB files should be installed on device main memory and not My storage.

7. After file is installed go back to "Today Items" in "Settings" and disable "TouchFlo"

8. I would soft reset at this point but probably not necessary

9. In the Manila folder install file "2" M2D Patch

10. I would soft reset at this point but probably not nessecary

11. Install the rest of the files 3 to 12 in the manila folder soft resetting the device if told to by the installations. Yes you do need to install Gmaps as it wont work in the M2D maps widget.

12. You now have a choice you can skip this and go to step 13 which is easier and better or you can - Leave the installation here and you will have a dark blue skin which will not fill your screen. You will have to edit HTCHomeSettings.xml located in the windows directory of your device, once edited to suit Omnia resolution you will need to put HTCHomeSettings.xml in the windows/manilaGFX directory of your device. You will also have to put hh_fw_background.png into the same directory. Jump to step 15.

13. The best way is to ignore step 12 and install file "13" in manila folder this will give the HTC Standard Theme which is nice.

14. For the MBarvian Touchflo 3d Skin I have already edited the HTCHomeSttings.xml to suit the omnia resolution. Move ._HTCHomeSttings.xml, HTCHomeSttings.xml and hh_fw_background.png from the manila/files folder to the windows folder of your device.

15. I would soft reset at this point but probably not necessary

16. When the device starts go to "settings" then "today" then "items" and enable "TouchFlo"

17. You will need to edit the registry to be able to use the CommManager to enable/disable WiFi. Go to HKLM/software/drivers/WLAN and check that AdapterName is JAGUARGSP1. Go to HKLM/software/HTC/CommManager/WLAN and replace the name after the \TNETW12511 with \JAGUARGSP1. DO NOT edit the contents in the brackets only the name after the \.

18. That should be it!

Here are the files.

Paul you might want to mediafire the file as some people have trouble with rapidshare

Wow! That's a good guide, I really like it but as you mentioned, the only thing holding me back to the unbelievable amount of space it takes. Just out of curiosity, *cough* *cough* if someone cooks this in a ROM, will it still take up the program memory or will it be in the ROM memory ;)

Like the work I've done for you?

Then I would really appreciate it if you could help me out.

It will encourage me further and of course produce better work.

A dollar or any amount you could spare will be greatly appreciated.

Made a mistake in the first post I meant there was only 5mb STORAGE memory not PROGRAM memory.

I made a mistake. I am left with 5mb STORAGE memory not PROGRAM memory. Working on Update to free up more Storage Memory.

Just tried installing no 01 cab which I downloaded from my rapidshare upload (To test that your file is ok) and it works fine. Do you get certificate warning? It is a large file to install 12mb. What ROM have you got as I have only tested on i900DXHI3?

Silly question but have you tried soft reset then try install again?

maybe it's due to file size too big? already clicked yes in cert prompt and it stays at 0% for 5-10 munites until i got fade up and reset ;)

well i was wondering, if 1 file is 12mb, how much space it would take up in main storage if it can't work on MyStorage...

I forgot to see what my memory was like before I started. I can tell you I have 20.40mb Storage memory free now with everything installed that is needed to run M2D.
What ROM you got?

I installed all, from the "old" upload. Downloaded the No1 from xda-dev.
step 13 didn't install -> downloaded from xda-dev ok!
Then steps 14 to 16:
copied files to \windows\
soft reset
activated TouchFlo3D

Now it's written: Touch here to start touchFlo. When I click, its working a second an returning to this message.
I think, the xml has a problem too

could you post just the xml from your device to verfy?
