Default [MOD][(W)VGA][28-12-09][Sense Manila] Manila Hacks\Edits

I started this thread out in the Leo forum but since these hacks are not really device (or resolution, not entirely sure though) dependent might as well post them for all to see.

Alarm Hack Home tab

Description:

Changes the alarm shortcut on the Home tab to another application than the default windows\HTC one.

The app prompts you a couple of questions which determine where your alarm application is installed, and adjust the shortcut accordingly. Make sure you type the names in correctly because typo's (case or errors) will produce an incorrect shortcut. It will create either a manila files or a cab.

Supported Applications:
- CradleAlarm
- G-Alarm
- Klaxon
- SPB Time

Supported manila versions:
- 2.1 Sense
- 2.5 Sense
- Others? (not actively supported)

How it works:

It's done via a batch script. This does not work if the application folder is placed somewhere that has a space in the filename (e.g. C:\Wrong File Path\Alarm_Hack_Home_Tab -> C:\Right_File_Path\Alarm_Hack_Home_Tab). It's not just a matter of shortcut creation, this hack is done in lua.

Changelog:

v1.1

- Made it foolproof by adding various checks
- Combined the 2.1 and 2.5 version to a single script
- Added choice.exe to the Tools folder since older versions of windows do not have this

v1.2

- Added support for CradleAlarm

v1.3

- Added simple logging

v1.4

- Supports manila 1922 (manila from dec 2009) but not the lower versions.

Calendar Hack Home tab

Description:

Changes the calendar shortcut on the Home tab to another application than the default windows\HTC one.

The app prompts you a couple of questions which determine where your alarm application is installed, and adjust the shortcut accordingly. Make sure you type the names in correctly because typo's (case or errors) will produce an incorrect shortcut. It will create either a manila files or a cab.
