Hi, I search xda forum and found nothing about how to change People tab layout. So I make a little modification, that change the layout of People tab to 4 x 4 shortcuts, but there is still 15 shortcuts. I try to increase the number of shortcuts, but I was not successful. The result, that I achieved was, that I increase the number of shortcuts, but when I want to add new contact number 16 and more nothing happen (still blank field).


I use WM 6.5.5 (23554) and HTC Sense 2.5.2012.1412




If you have problem, that describe ca3sar (see his screenshot), try corrected cab (People tab 4x4 WVGA sprint.cab):





22.4.2010 - test cab for VGA devices.
22.4.2010 - I have confirmed that, VGA version is working.
User AdamiX provide me his screenshots. Here they are.


22.4.2010 - I updated cabs with version, where facebook icon position is fixed.

23.4.2010 - If you get small icons, but in 3x3 layout try People tab 4x4 WVGA v2.cab

Hi, can you take a screenshot of your problem?
To change the people layout I edited 2 files: 6a6c19f5_manila (people.mode9) and 7ddd3eff_manila (PeopleLayout.lua). Eventually You can send me this 2 files and I take a look on them.
I use Topaz OS 5.2.23554 and Sense 2.5.2012, but Sprint Manila can have some differences.

Hi ca3sar and millski,
I take a look on the manila files, that You sent me. Yours 6a6c19f5_manila file has 15 kb and my 6a6c19f5_manila file has 20 kb. I try to flash 2 latest ROMS in my TOPAZ, but the 6a6c19f5_manila file in both ROMs has 20 kb size.
So I edit 6a6c19f5_manila file, that you sent me. Try it and let me know the result.

Copy file in zip in Windows folder.

I created a cab for it and it looks smaller but still only 3 in a row. They are the similar size though. I also only installed the file you modified. So right now its 3 in a row like stock rom but your size, the smaller ones. Let me know if you want another pic.

It would be great if one can find how to have more than 15 contacts ... perhaps 24. Thanks.
