for Light and Dark/Inverted Sense 6 ROMs
This app mod is a layout redesign of the Large Dial Pad included in the Sense 6 dialer. The larger dialer is kind of hideous IMO and with a screen as big as ours, really not necessary, however, it DOES have its benefits. Namely the scrollable recent dialed/contact list. So, with this in mind, I have redesigned the layout for the large dialer to match the standard dialer but still allow for the scrollable contact list.
What's the point:
The standard sense 6 dial pad provides only one call back option in the "recently called" field above the dialer. This, of course, is the last dialed number.
In earlier versions of sense (eg sense 4) the contact field allowed for a selection from a list of multiple contacts as well as recently dialed numbers, as opposed to being limited to simply the last dialed number.
So what have you done:
I have redone the layout for the large dialer so that it now matches the standard dialer, while leaving the scrollable contact list in the recently dialed field. This list combines not only recently dialed numbers but your full contact list into one dynamic scrollable list directly in the dialer.
Will I lose anything:
Yes, you will no longer have the "Large dial pad" as an option as that layout has been completely replaced within the apk.
How can I use this:
Copy the apk to /system/priv-app/HtcContactsDialer/ and make sure permissions are set correctly, reboot and enjoy.
So how do I apply the Classic dialer:
I have replaced the large dial pad option entirely within the apk.
To apply the classic dialer simply open the settings menu within the app and select "Classic dial pad." To switch back, simply open the settings menu again and select a "Standard dial pad."

All language translations show "Classic dial pad" for the layout option. If anyone wants to help with other translations that's more than welcome. I only speak English.
