Just been tampering with the PHM Registry Editor. Found a little registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERControlPanelExternalLCDLogoPath

This was: windowsOrangeLogo.bmp

So, I loaded up Paint Shop Pro, bastardised the old logo accordingly, and saved it back to the phone in IPSMWindows - then modified the registry to point to the new file, IPSMWindowsOrangeLogo.bmp ...

One reboot later, and my external LCD no longer says "Orange" :lol:

Apologies if this has already been posted - couldn't find it or I'd have done it already ;)

We are very sorry, but the number you have dialed is imaginary. Please rotate your phone 90 degrees and try again! ;)

Indeed it is ... When I first got the phone, I took a quick look through the Windows folder on the ROM. The first thing that went through my head is "this is asking to be bastardised" although it's obviously not that simple to get at certain stuff. Lots of fun though :lol:

Still, I'm more than impressed with what you *can* get at (well, now it's app unlocked, like) and I'm sure the rest will come. I wouldn't mind something to keep the external LCD backlight on all the time when it's charging, for instance.

As for girlfriend pics, I'll let you know when I get a decent 80x48 black and white rendition of her in the buff ... eheheh ;)

Where can i get a registry editor? and is it too dodgy to muck around if you dont know exactly what you are doing? I've read lots of posts which let you do cool stuff by adjusting properties in the registry. Should i leave it well alone?!

cheers

Strange... the phone from AT&T Wireless doesn't have this key there...
Anyone in the US found the key?

For anyone who fancies doing some clever logos, the original is attached to give you something to work from.

It's 2 colour 80 x 48 pixels.

For AT&T phones (ie. ones that don't have the registry key and display only the clock) try this:

"1. Added the registry value that "Guest" mentioned and pointed it to a 80x48 pixel 2 color bitmap that I placed in my "IPSMWindows" directory.
2: I changed the existing registry value of "FlipLogo" from "0" to "1". "

This quoted courtesy of Sarc on the MPx200.org forums. Cheers mate ;)

In a nutshell, if the registry key ain't there - just create it. (type: REG_SZ in case you're wondering)

FlipLogo is 1 on my phone by default, but FlipLogo 0 I assume would save you having to flip and mirror it in Paint Shop Pro or whatever you use.

HTH. Bring on the bastardised logos you Photochoppers :(

Also, goinnuts, would next Tuesday be OK for my girlfriend to come round to your house and pose nude?

Ta :lol:

Just to clarify, the "FlipLogo" reg value is actually more of a on/off kinda' thing.

So, a value of "0" the external LCD will not show the logo, and a value of "1" the LCD will show the logo.

Coming from a natural point of view, all the images made for use on the phone will need to be inverted to be oriented correctly when someone is using the phone.

Hmmm this only seems to change the logo when its open.... it still has my operator logo on when its closed.

Anyone got any idea how to modify this as well?

Cheers

You can select between 3 styles for the LCD display when it's closed. Setting > phone settings > Ext LCD Style.
