Cabs for easy and fast Registry Tweaking

In this thread you can find Cabs (made by Tylwith) that will make applying some of the Registry Tweaks posted above a lot more easy and fast.

Below a short description:

DisableCameraSound.cab Disable autofocus sound, recording sound and SHUTTER3
Enable_Settings_rotation.cab Enables the settings menu in 6.5 rom and also allow to map the rotation to a hard key
EnableDialerSkin.cab Enable Samsung Dialer
DisableDialerSkin.cab Disable Samsung Dialer
EnchancedTouch.cab Encrese the screen responsiveness
RingIncrease.cab Fix the 3 second ring delay (it only works up to firmware H3, after that it just mutes the phone)
DisableSkinSmsEmail.cab Disable Samsung Skinned Email and Sms application
EnableThreadedSms.cab It only works after using disableSkinSmSEmail.cab
4RowsMenuWithHoneyComb.cab Make 4 rows for windows 6.5 start up menu with honeycomb
SettingMenu.cab Add 6.1 menusettings for people who want to enable/disable touchwizUI on wm6.5


the enhanced touch.cab file is missing. can you upload it again?

enjoy


Got back home earlier... luckly becouse it was some really sh***y kind of trip^^

The gps today was working not so good... it's really random.
Also with BaudRate: 38400 wasn't working at all for me... maybe it depends on which BaudRate is used on the first fix after a soft reset? no idea really^^

Is there a reg setting for disabling the AGPS and just use the good old GPS for geotagging photos?
Don't really want to use any data up just to tag and pictures I take.

Sorry I'm not very expert about GPS... not even sure if AGPS and XTRA is the same thing or not^^
You can disable the XTRA download or make it manually or only on Active Sync at Samsung Settings - General Settings - GPS - XTRA

Sorry if it's not what you were looking for^^

Comments suggestions (updated):

* The hard reset - everywhere i see it, everyone says just that "do a hard reset". Maybe link to your instructions or something so people don't think it means only turning the phone off...
* I noticed in your previous thread you said you combine spb mobile shell with iPhoneToday but it is not listed. You installing that or you just leave it with spb mobile shell now? If not any reason why before i go and install iPhoneToday?
* The startup time for spb mobile shell is shocking. I timed it and from when i see the windows mobile today screen (and can use the phone), it takes another 20 to 30 seconds to load spb mobile shell - any way to speed this up at all?

P.S. You should setup a donation link like those other forums if possible coz this is good work man, I am sure people wouldn't mind slipping some money your way for your efforts :D


I'll put tha Hard Reset in the FAQ list

At the moment I'm not using iPhoneToday anymore becouse I'm still waiting for many UI to test^^ SPB mobile shell 3.5 now allows to use custom icons too and I hope the new PointSense version will be availble too. Also with the many ROMs available lately I flash too often^^
Anyway I'll make a section where to talk about my favorite UI and screens.

About faster startup for SPB I don't know sorry... I soft reset my phone just once every many days so I never paid much attention to it

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately they are not the same thing as far as I am aware, XTRA is an application you can run from time to time to update the system on where it should expect to find the satalites when the GPS is used. AGPS uses network to assist in triangulation of your position.

this is the setting i've been using ever since i900 and it's been working flawlesly, no matter what area im in, i always get GSP locked on within no more than 30 sec. might wanna try to hardreset then set it this way right after.

You have to install some programs which stops your data connection such as "NoData" or "ConnManager" or "NoData in Roamining"

I started my list of suggested programs, I'll try to complete it in some days and keep it updated with new releases.


Suggested programs review by category

Here I'll try to list some, in my opinion, usefull programs (both shareware and freeware).
For every category, in Bold text are my preferred choices; in non-bold text are some more programs which it may be worth considering in a future updated version or are in need of further testing.
Please suggest me any more usefull programs to add to the list.

- System
NET_FrameWork_v3.5.cab
HTCSensorSDK.zip (by GinKage): Emulates HTC's G-Sensor API on i8000, that is used in a number of applications, and in many games.
Auto-Rotate screen applications: applications to auto-rotate screen in any application of your choice

- System Utilities
SKtools: Simply too many features to list for system maintenance and system tweaking. Registry Editor included.

Just some interesting system&phone tweaks:
disable/enable Samsung Dialer - TuneUp/Phone Edition/OEM Dialer skin
problem with caller id - TuneUp/Phone Edition/Call ID match
sms sent notification (only work after disabling Samsung SMS application) - TuneUp/Phone Edition/Do not show "Message sent" bubble
TuneUp/Security/Disable warning when installing non-certified applications
TuneUp/Other/PowerOff-PowerOn sound

Other usefull functions:
Cleaning cache and free RAM memory
Uninstaller
Registry Explorer
Move Installed programs changing the shortcuts to the new values
Manage startup programs
Manage Contacts and PIM

MemMaid: Better user-friendly interface then SKtools but less features.
SASHIMI (Freeware): a must have for ONLY people who like to Flash their ROM very very often, make reinstalling every programs much faster! (you must register to download it from the link). You can find a guide here
SK Shortcut Manager: it helps manage/edit/create your shortcut and change icons (useful but not essential, here and here 2 guides to creating shortcuts manually or you can use Resco Explorer too). Mostly useful if you want to change icons (which may not really be needed anymore on WM 6.5)
Tweaks2k2: collection of many registry hacks (not really recommended, the freeware Advanced Configuration Tools listed below can do about the same)
Pocket Mechanic Professional: maintenance utility (not really recommended, less powerfull than SKtools and many users reported data loss)
Custom Colors: you can change the colors on your Pocket PC (not much that SKtools can’t do too)
SpeedBooster: it allows you to focus the CPU power to various programs running on your device (NOT TESTED MYSELF YET)
PPC Configurator (Freeware): This tool will configure your Phone not to see some of the SIP Programs you dont often use (NOT TESTED MYSELF YET)

The following is a list of freeware programs which may be useful to replace some shareware utilities (mostly SKtools):
Advanced Configuration Tools Allows you to easily modify more than 200 settings for Windows Mobile system and applications.
Settings+ v0.2 : sms threaded option, WM colors and fonts settings
Tonality: tweak the various hidden sound events deep within the registry
PHM Registry Editor A registry editor if you don't have Sktools or Resco Explorer (never tested myself but I read it's good)

- System Data Utilities
SPB Backup: Many features to make and restore backup of datas and installed programs.
Sprite Backup: should be on par with SPB Backup, but simply never tried it.
Raise Data Recovery: data recovery of lost information (NOT TESTED MYSELF YET
CardRecovery: data recovery of lost information (NOT TESTED MYSELF YET)
RAR 3.90 for Pocket PC (freeware) (no need if you use Resco Explorer or Total Commander)
7-Zip_9.05_alpha.CAB (freeware)

- Encyclopaedia/Wikipedia

Wikipedia in Mdict (mdx) format update on May 2009 (Freeware): The entire English wikipedia in your Omnia2. The file itself is 2.7 GB. Dumped on May 28 2009. Also there are Wikipedia version of other languages. No data connection needed, all the file in your storage card. Personally I find it very useful.

Upvise Wikipedia (Freeware): download instantly the entire Wikipedia article specially formatted for mobile device. It’s obviously more up to date but need a data connection. (personally not tested it because I prefer to have everything on my storage card but for people with data plan I guess it’s better)

The Wikipedia Encyclopedia for TomeRaider3 updated on May 2008: it’s older and not free… but it may be worth checking for future updates.

AbsoluteWord RoadLingua Geographical Atlas: Geographical Atlas with information about country location, population, economy, and military, map and flag. Didn’t try it and it’s a bit expensive^^ but still I decided to put it in my list of “maybe useful in the future” programs

Hello,
it is a hidden system rom file. So you need to use a more powerfull file explorer program such as Resco file esplorer or Total commander (and enable to show hidden and system files)
Maybe the defoult file explorers have such an option too... not really sure I never used them.
