Okay, per my previous post, I did some research and found out you have to use program aliases for the soft key links, not the actual links to the application. So how do I find out what the application alias is for WeatherBug Mobile?

Yeah, the default Windows Home screen doesn't like modification of Soft Key 1. If I modify just the HKLM keys, the home screen is hidden. If I change the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\112 keys, the home screen will display, but shows :MSCONTACTS which is the default. If I change both, the home screen is hidden.

I wouldn't spend too much time on this, I was just hoping there was a way to easily get some type of weather functionality directly on the default Windows Home screen.

Well using Resco Registry editor worked, but didn't work. Maybe I edited the wrong key. I changed the following, but all it did was change the left soft key to Weatherbug, but the rest of the today screen is blank (all you can see is my wallpaper, the taskbar at the top, and the two soft keys at the bottom.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CHome\SK1TEXT = Weather
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CHome\SK1URL = \My Storage\Program Files\WeatherBug Mobile\WeatherBug.lnk

EDIT: When I change the SoftKey settings back to their default, Contacts & :MSCONTACTS, everything is back to normal.

I'll make a note to try it out tonight. I am going to be very busy in the next couple hours at a family function.

But from what you have mentioned. Those keys should not be locked in any way. The only thing that is locked is the Call Button and that is in the CSC which we don't touch. But for the soft keys. I want to say that I set both values (in Registry and PROVXML) so if you change them, they probably should change fine, but if you reboot, they probably go back to the way they were :P

I'll have to (more than likely) remove the PROVXML file that controls that from the ROM, and add whatever relevant/required info to a regular RGU file after conversion. That way users will be able to customize my ROMs more without having their efforts denied on reboot.

I am not sure why the Home Screen does not show up at all after these changes.

I'm sticking a post it note on my laptop now, so I will work on this issue tonight. Please keep them coming.

Ok, apparently creating CAB files for all the changes you do to your device definately leaves a paper trail of registry keys left to put in place. Start Menu X-Menu Icon has been changed to the one I have been using the whole time. Smaller and neater. WiFi Link and Icon have been added to the registry settings of the X-Menu. I left a long graphically detailed post on the XDA Forum for BattClock about the current problem with the location settings. Those settings still remain "loose-laid" and hopefully someone will be able to send the proper keys over for an easy fix.

Again, here is the latest SP1 Update [02/04/11]
Here is the Video for the "intended" BattClock look until we can get it solved.

There is a problem with BattClock 3.4.3 that import settings does not clear already available settings. This problem is caused by the fact that now only the overruled values are stored in the registry. So if there are already settings available...... You can fix this, by removing the registry tree before importing the wanted registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZuinigeRijder\BattClock3

In the next version of BattClock I will fix this issue. Please let me know if this does not solve the problem.

I'll field this one...

This is not for the feint of heart. Don't expect this to be like putting on a brand new seat cover in your car, and if you don't like it you just take it off and your car will be just like it was. What we do is provide the user with a better "more complete" experience for the users who want more from their phone, or who just want less crap ON their phone.

The process is quite simple, but it is involved. First, just like a computer bios, once you flash your rom chip, you can't just un-flash it. You have to re-flash it with another rom image. So installing the software isn't really software, its more like firmware. But don't worry too much, you can always go back to the garbage that vzw+sammy has provided for your phone in the first place. Just flash an older rom image, and then use the official vzw update software to flash the official rom image back to your phone.

After you flash your phone, you will lose everything. No really everything. Treat this like you would a loaded gun. Don't go waiving it around in people's faces, treat ALL guns as loaded guns. By this I mean treat every flash like this will be the last time you see ANYthing on your phone. Make sure you back up your phone BEFORE you flash, especially the official vzw update software, which also overwrites your "My Storage" card.

Okay so the process is simple, like I said. But the setup can be confusing. I will give you one last warning though, after you realize what a custom rom can do for your phone, you may get bitten by the FLASHBUG. I'm a confessed flash-a-holic myself, but thats not necessarily a bad thing.

see this for a good rundown:http://www.modaco.com/content/verizon-samsung-sch-i920-omnia-ii-cdma-rom-discussion/304107/how-i-flashed-my-omnia-vzw-i920/

I'll keep this short ( like all my posts :D )...

1. download and install the drivers for your OS (windows 32-bit or 64-bit)
2. download a flasher program (octans or mine, i920 Flasher)
3. download a rom image (there are dozens available in the i920 thread, did you heard that I said i920 thread)
4. use your flasher program to load the .nb0 file (in PDA if you use octans) and then press detect
5. connect your phone while off, or connect your phone and press the reset button with the stylus)

If you see the yield sign on your phone, you are good to go, just be patient and you will soon be enjoying a custom made experience.
If you see the battery charge icon, disconnect and do step 5. again.

We are hear to help those who want a better phone, so feel free to ask questions, but please, PLEASE use the search button located at the bottom left corner of all forums/threads to find the answer first.

Happy flashing!

I tried this rom out today. I loved the amount of memory available and Sense overall worked well. The biggest issues I noticed is that Cookies Home Tab and Cookies Home Tab Editor do not work. Any settings you change are ignored and go back to the defaults after you leave CHT Editor program.

Any ideas?

Before exiting out of Cookies Home Tab Editor did you make sure to do Menu>Apply changes?

did you happen to see the forum you posted in? This is the US Verizon i920 Omnia II, not to be confused with the i8000. You need to re-flash your phone with a compatible rom ie i8000 rom.

I've been using the Sense rom for a while now. It's great. The only issue, and this is not that big of an issue, is that I can't link my contacts with my facebook. When i try my phone just freezes. Also anyone know how to add music files to the home screen tab player?

Got some updates for everyone. So far, after a couple of weeks using this ROM (base 1.0 ROM, not SP1 2.0) I've had almost no issues that make me want to look for a different ROM.

I wanted to use the WinMo default home screen, but customize it. No problem. Just download the free customization tool from Marketplace and you've got apps, contacts, weather, etc on the home screen. I wanted a different taskbar than BattConfig. No problem. I just installed tachan23's taskbar icons and it works like a charm. Etc, etc, ...

There are a few minor irratations I wanted everyone to be aware of and hope for a possible easy fix (or update to newer version).
1) I'm fairly certain the the font colors in messaging are the defaults that were cooked into the phone and not some theme I've experimented with. No matter what theme I use, the background in messaging is always black, my text is always bright green, and other replies are dark blue. My green text in the messages is easy to read, but replies in the dark blue color are almost impossible to read in any light, especially bright light - and I've had LASIK surgery, so I know it isn't my eyes.
2) The text notification icon of the built in Samsung Large Indicator application doesn't seem to work. If I get a Reminder icon, email icon, voicemail icon, etc I can tap the icon and it will take me to the application. If I click on a text notification on the Large Indicator bar, nothing happens.
3) Bluetooth, at least with my old Motorola BT500 headset, is somewhat flaky. If the headset is off and bluetooth on the phone is off, and I turn them on, the phone says they are connected, but I can't answer calls or activate Voice Commander from the headset. All I have to do is go into the Bluetooth settings on the phone, tap my headset, disconnect, reconnect, and then everything works. But considering I have to do this twice a day when I get in my car to and from work, it's a pain. Is there a trick to this? Is there a registry tweak I can make? Or do I just need to invest in a newer Bluetooth headset since mine is like 5 years old.

Once again, I'm still really enjoying the ROM. Keep up the good work my friend.

I can help with the text colors for your email. I had the same issue and found this easy fix. Just change the "Theme" you are using. I know you said that did not work for you but it solved my issue. I use SPB Mobile Shell as my UI. I chose a black theme and it fixed all my dark text on black background issues. See pics. My bluetooth headset is working fine as is the "Sync" bluetooth connection in my Ford vehicle. So I haven't had any issues with it. I am running the X-920 V1.0 SP1 without Sence.

I don't think that's it. The emails that I'm having trouble viewing are HTML emails, but from corporate email accounts with specified font colors in them. Example:
- When I get an email from anyone whose default fonts are a white background with black text, it shows as black background with white text on my phone.
- When I get an email from anyone whose default fonts are a white background with colored text, it shows as black background with that colored text (these are the ones that are hard to read). Also, my "reply" font in Outlook is a light green color. On my phone, it shows up as light green and I can read it. My boss' reply color is a dark green. It shows up as dark green on my phone and is one that is hard to read.
- When I get HTML newsletters from various sources, it shows as the HTML graphics similar to the way I see it on my laptop and I can view it fine.

There is a common theme here (no pun intended). In emails that are just regular emails (Activesync is setup for HTML, so if that is how they are composed, that is how they show on my phone), the background color is ALWAYS black with the color of the font that the email was composed as. Regardless of what theme I change too, the background color on all emails that don't have embedded graphics is black. It doesn't change when I change my theme and I know no other way of changing it (there is no "fonts" options inside of pocket Outlook).

The one thing I'm going to try is to change my Exchange sync settings on from HTML to Plain text. I'm wondering if custom fonts will go away all backgrounds will be black and all text will be white, regardless of how the sender sends it. Unfortunately, I don't want Plain Text emails...

Using your favorite File Manager with ROM Access rename this file: mxipcold_zzzgreenACRE_100.provxml to mxipcold_zzzgreenACRE_100.provxml.bak

Reboot, change your theme, and try that.

.provxml files are run one time, at first boot. They are executed by a program called coldinit.exe

So unless they are changed in the cooking process, I doubt renaming them will have any effect. You can use a program like DotFred's taskmanager to manually run a provxml file. Although it needs to be named .xml

Actually, I believe if you rename it and remove the battery and then restart the phone, the PROVXML will not take effect after the hard reset like it took on the initial flash. I know if you renamed the PROVXML, and then hard reset, the phone will boot without the GreenAcre forced theme. So then if you change to a theme that doesn't change everything that my PROVXML set, you wont have any remnant registry entries from my forced theme that get rolled over onto the NEW theme, like a constant black background.

Note, this theme was compiled from the SAMSUNG Black Theme that came with stock. If I remember correctly, a lot of people had this similar issue with the STOCK Black Theme.

This could very well be the case, as I've not tested it. but I'm a bit confused on your verbiage. When I hear Hard Reset, I think of the old hold down lock+send+end keys while powering on the phone, then saying yes to formatting. This would erase the contents of the phone system area, and re-copy the files from ROM and perform an initial boot. This would have the same effect as flashing your phone. What you are suggesting is more like a cold boot, verses a warm boot. Where you remove the battery and power on manually, verses pressing the reset switch on the side of the phone (or using a program to reset). Either way, I'm not convinced a cold boot and a warm boot are different from each other.

If the provxmls don't take effect like you say I'm baffled. because I can set the theme to my own custom theme, and after a restart the provxmls don't change it back.

I seem to be rambling on and on, so DON'T MIND ME if your procedure works. I'm not trying to be argumentative, just trying to get the boot process straightened out. If I'm wrong I'd like to find the answer, so I don't relay false information.

I was told that removing the battery was equivalent to a hard reset... but nothing to do with formatting. So it is I that may be wrong :D
