Hey tacchan, do u use any software for changing automatically today wallpaper of titanium ? I've found the software named "AntWorks Auto Wallpaper Changer" , but it seems not working on my omnia2


Sorry no idea, I don't really like Titanium look/feel... so I never really tried it after seeing some screens

I'm sorry upfront if my questions have been already unanswered, but I couldn't find the answers so far. Could anybody please advice me how to disable tapping sounds on Today screen.
Also is there a way to add at list one more Today screen?
Thank you all in advance.

What you mean for tapping sounds on "Today screen"?
if you mean any sounds tapping on any screen (not just Today) then go to Settings - Sound Settings - Touch Alert - Touch Event set to None

Also I don't understand what you mean with "add at list one more Today screen"

Windows Mobile 6.5 ROMs: Tweaks tested and working on newer wm 6.5 firmware


SMS/Email

  • Disable the Threading SMS in Samsung SMS skinned application

Go to HKLM/Software/Samsung/JINBOX and set "ThreadedViewDisabled" from 0 to 1.
After changing you need to softreset your device.



How do you get to HKLM/Software/...?

I have installed resco explorer and done soft reset but cant seem to locate the program in the installed location "my device" on my Omnia2.

Wad step am i missing or resco is irrelevant to get to HKLM registry?

Please bear wif me cos i'm noobs in WM.

:D

Thank you for your replay.
I was talking about Samsung TouchWiz UI Today Screen with widgets.
I managed to remove warnings and other unnecessary for me sounds from my Omnia II, but tapping sound of widgets on Samsung TouchWiz UI Today Screen I couldn't find the way to disable it.
Regarding the 4th screen. Samsung TouchWiz UI Today Screen by default has 3 screens where we can put widgets. Is there a reg hack (or another way) to add more screens?
Thank you in advance.

The Samsung Widgets is called WidgetPlus, just for info^^
The issue/bug about sounds when tapping on widgets (even with touch sound notification disabled) was reported on older ROM, but I don't know if it has been fixed on newer ROMs (which ROM you using? if it is a WM6.5 rom, it means Samsung didn't fix it yet)
About adding a 4th page to WidgetPlus I really don't know, never looked into it becouse IMHO it is a very crappy UI and disabling it is the first thing to do in my list after flashing a new ROM^^

Small guide/memo on what to do after Flashing a new ROM
...
10) S2U2 (edit/import preferences, customize looks)
...
13) Backup software
...
18) Garmin


couple of questions, if i may...

10) how do you get this thing to work so that you don't have to unlock twice? i keep having the same problem - when unlocking the s2u2 i have to unlock "original" wm6.5 screen. did not find proper settings yet...

13) which one do you use? i tried resco backup, but it seems not to get everything in place...

18) Garmin Mobile XT 5.00.20w asked me to get explicitly garmin gps module. I did not see GpsGate or similar in your installation... how do you get it to work? does your gps catch the signat quickly? mine always complaing to have poor gps reception... or yre you using external gps receiver?

thanks in advance for your answers!

cheers,
egor

10) you have to disable the wm 6.5 lock screen: Samsung settings - Display and light - Lock screen (you are not the fist to ask, I'll add it to the FAQ)

13) I mean I install Backup Software (SPB backup in my case), I don't mean you can restore your backup after flashing.

18) Garmin should ask for external gps module only if it's not registered yet (at least it was like this for me before registering).

- Notepad/Memo (what I looking for: finger friendly, allow both typing and writing in the same sheet, alarm reminders, voice memo)

PhatNotes + PhatPad: installing both programs (from the same producer) you can get alarm reminders, voice memo, typing and hand writing but still the integration is not really good.

AgileNotes v2.0 (note that the new version v3.0 is really crap and doesn’t support handwriting anymore): too bad it’s a very old release so it’s not finger friendly; also no alarm reminders.

VsNotepad: very very nice interface but doesn’t support typing and can’t save to Storage/Memory Card

Evernote: Type a text note. Clip a web page. Snap a photo. Grab a screenshot. Evernote will keep it organized. (NOT TESTED MYSELF YET, but it sounds interesting)

Dear gurus

you know that omnia I8000 has a intrinsic  call recorder, but it is often difficult to press note to record call during conversation, is it possible by a registry tweak to have all the call being recorded without pressing anywhere

thank you

I honestly don't know... but I guess it's not very likely.
Maybe you can try this freeware (I didn't test it yet): auto call recorder: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=536472

- PIM

ThumbCal v1.3.5: very efficient and finger friendly calendar and tasks application. The other 2 suggested PIM below offer very powerful features to create links between, tasks, appointments, contacts, etc… but that comes at the price of needing a lot of time for learning how to use them. So if you are looking for a real user friendly solution, efficient, immediate to use and don’t need any “strange” features for you appointment/tasks managment, ThumbCal is the best choice.

Agenda One: I didn’t test the latest version, should be more finger friendly than the past (could be a good choice for people who need a more “powerful” PIM than ThumbCal)

Pocket Informant: I didn’t test the latest version, should be more finger friendly than the past (could be a good choice for people who need a more “powerful” PIM than ThumbCal)

SPB Diary: it’s a Today plugin, so it may be useful for people who don’t know how to fill their Today screen (couse using some other UI)

TodayAgenda (freware): as above, but it’s freeware^^

Is Garmins still asking you to get garmin gps module?
If so, I think it's not installed properly.
If not, did you try the GPS settings I posted in the Tweak/FAQ? maybe they will increase the fix time.

Enabling NetCompactFramework 3.5

  • Open any registry editor, go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETCompactFramework
    change 2.0.7045.00 from 1 to 0
    then change 3.5.7283.00 from 0 to 1
    wait 30 secs then soft reset


I don't have the 3.5.7283.00 key in my registry (I just have the 2.0 one described above). I have PDA XXIJ6 , CSC EURIJ6, PHONE XXIJ2 ROM. I tried to install Mobile Shell Extension which needs v3.5 netcompactframework and it wont install. I tried downloading .netcompactframework v3.5 but when it went to install it said it was already in my ROM. If it is already there, how can I enable it if the registry key above doesnt exist? It seems to be half there only!
