thanks for the battery replacement cab.

After install of the cab, is there another step?

Please don't move or remove this thread :)

It's likely to be a while until I get the 3100 and if I d/l all the apps now they'll be updated or simply bettered by the time I need 'em (sods law!)

;) :D

Only if the battery has not been sitting on a shelf for too long :)

Still good to give it a top up charge of around four hours, and it should show a full charge before that time though.

Great hermes review Paul. Cheers.

I tried to copy HTC Green Theme onto my Wizard (I have not made the great leap forward, just waiting for the TMobile Vario II) but no way. I got an error message ;) No problem with the MoDaCo tweaked VistaBliss theme though.

Any idea why? Surely the HTC Green Theme tsk file should install on any win mobile 2005 device :)

I'll try it on my Prophet and see if it works.

I had the same problem, but got round it by copying the whole .zip file onto the phone and then used the phone's ZIP utility to extract the .tsk into My Documents. Worked a treat and I've now got a nice gaudy green theme on my phone!

Thanks a lot for this post. The Battery stuff is awesome, and the Wireless Today plug-in is really useful. One thing that was annoying me with the M3100 default setup was how fiddly it was to turn wireless on and off.

Surely it was (and still is) "push comm mgr button, click on wireless" ? (especially as clicking on the netui/wireless plug in doesnt open com mgr anyway)

Cheers! :)

You can simply load your own suitable pic on to the device and then click the USE THIS PICTURE AS BACKGROUND Option.

thanks, still not working thou...

Is that because you have a K-Jam and not a hermes?? (doesn't work on my K-Jam either)

Other than just going into the Today settings and turning it off?

You could hard reset then break out before it installs the EXTROM, but then you'd be missing other stuff too.
