I thought creating a thread that shows the various registry hacks might be helpful/useful/contructive/destructive.
I am still pretty new to all of this and would love to know what others have discovered to get 'more' from our PPCs.

Thanks in advance for the contributions!

I am using PHM Registry for my editor.

That is why I thought it might be nice to have one location for them.

Registry Hacks - List 1
You can download and install PHM Registry Editor on your phone to modify the registry.
http://www.phm.lu/Products/PocketPC/RegEdit/



Unlocking/Unhidding the extended_rom

\HKLM\System\StorageManager\Profiles\EXT_FLASHDRV \
then change the value (default at 1) to 0

Wait at least a minute before doing a soft reset.

----
Get rid of the voicemal icon on the '1' key (3.16+)

The 3.16 rom has added an voicemail icon to '1' key which also caused my skin to look messed up. You can disable it:

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\PhoneExtendFunctio n\CDMA\

set the DWORD value
"EnableVoicemailIcon" = "0"

by default it is set to 1.

went over to geeks and got a PANT laod of them by doing a "search" in the Titan forum


You can download and install PHM Registry Editor on your phone to modify the registry.

http://www.phm.lu/Products/PocketPC/RegEdit/

1-Unlock Phone (certificate security disabled) rev.1

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\0000 1001 = 2
-> Change the value data from 2 to 1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\0000 1005 = 16
-> Change the value data from 16 to 40
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\0000 1017 = 128
-> Change the value data from 128 to 144
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Security\Policies\Policies
-> Add new value "0000101b": Dword = 1
Close registry editor and soft reboot.

------------------------------------------------

2-Change Bluetooth headphones from mono (default) to stereo:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Bluetooth\A2 DP\Settings
UseJointStereo: change the DWORD from “1” TO “0” no quotes.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Bluetooth\A2DP\Settings\Bi tPool to 50
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Bluetooth\A2DP\Settings\Ma xSupportedBitPool to 50,

------------------------------------------------

3-Today screen, Single line date

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\TODAY
"Date"=dword:1
"AutoSingleLineDatePlugin"=dword:1

------------------------------------------------

4-Change Operator name

HKLM\System\State\Phone\Current Operator Name

------------------------------------------------

5-Disable the pop-up notification that says Message Sent rev.1

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Inbox
create a new key "Settings"
create a new string value "SMSNoSentMsg" and set the value to 1
Hit ok and select "Ok" to save and you are in business.

------------------------------------------------

6-Speed up

Using a registry editor such as PHM RegEdit lookup and change the following three values:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\FATFS\Cac heSize=0x1000(4096)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\FATFS\Ena bleCache=0x1(1)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\Filters\f sreplxfilt\ReplStoreCacheSize=0x1000(4096)

------------------------------------------------

7-Enable GPS icon in the Setting/System menu

HKLM\ControlPanel\GPS Settings
Change "Hide" to 0

------------------------------------------------

8-Enable Bluetooth and IrDA in Wmodem

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OEM\WModem
"Hide IrDA"=dword:00000000
"Hide Bluetooth"=dword:00000000
"Hide USB"=dword:00000000

-------------------------------------------------

9-Registry Hack Improvement of using bluetooth listen music

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\BtA2dpSnd
Add "Priority256 "= dword:60 (Use Dword Value)

HKLM/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Bluetooth/AudioGateway/Capability

change TYPE from 5 to 4

4=unlock

-------------------------------------------------

11-Camera Flip Pictures Fix

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\Camera\Image

When you take a picture it is saved in the wrong configuration and you then have to rotate
it with a picture editor so its not sideways and save it again. This is the fix for it.

"SSDte"="M/d/yy "

***** 2 spaces needed aafter the yy ****

fyi no quotes on the sting values if using a reg edit.

--------------------------------------------------

14-battery, screen rotate, and CommManager icons down in your tray

see cab in this post

http://ppcgeeks.com/reg-tweaks-06-19...,60.html#57690

--------------------------------------------------

15-Change Vibrate Strength

HKLM\SOFTWARE\OEM\VIB

STRENGTH_LOW set to 1.

--------------------------------------------------

16-Disable Ambient Light Sensor

KEY_CURRENT_USER\CONTROL PANEL\BACKLIGHT set auto sensor from 1 to 0

--------------------------------------------------

17-how to get rid of some of thoes annoying sounds while on calls or making calls (or attempting), such as adjusting the volume,

go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Sounds

Loudestincallvolume = the sound it makes when you turn the volume all the way up (that annoying little useless sound) delete this key to remove that

Quietestincallvolume = the same but for when you turn it all the way down

Networkdrop = the dropped call /w lost signal sound

Calldrop = caller hangs up before you do sound

---------------------------------------------------

18-Change ringtone/vibrate/LED flash characteristics

If you would like more control over how your device rings/vibrates/flashes its LEDs on events, you can can change the Script values of these events. For example, for an incoming call performing 'activate device, play ringtone, wait 3 seconds, repeat':

HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\RingTone0\Script = "apw3r" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

For performing 'active device, set volume to 33%, play ringtone, set volume to 67%, play ringtone, set volume to 100%, play ringtone (no repeat)':

HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\RingTone0\Script = "ac33pc67pc100p" (REG_SZ string, no quotes)

The following are the full codes available to you. Please note that all the codes are executed simultaneously except after a ringtone play / wait code. E.g. 'v1p' will vibrate and play at the same time, while vibrating for 1 second. But 'pv1' will play the ringtone through all the way first, then start vibrating for 1 second.

a = activate device
cN = set volume to N in percentage max volume
fN = flash notification LED for N seconds
p = play ringtone. Note that this will play the ringtone all the way through before continuing with the next code.
r = repeat. Note that this should be the last code in your Script string, if used at all.
vN = vibrate for N seconds
wN = wait for N seconds. Note that the device will wait this long before continuing with the next code.

NOTE: I tried this on my 6800 and changed the v0 to v1 and now it doesn't have just one long vibrate. v0 sets it to vibrate always.

-----------------------------------------------------

19-FIX THE SLOW RINGER

To do this, you will need your MSL, which only Sprint (or your provider) can provide you. Open up the phone app and dial ##778# (PST). You will be asked to enter your MSL. Enter it, and you will be brought into the provisioning of your phone. From the top left, select Modem Settings. On this page, your Slot Cycle Index (SCI) is how often your phone polls the tower for incoming calls, etc. This value is 1.28 seconds multiplied by 2^value (i.e 0=1.28 secs, 1=2.56secs) with 0 fastest, 7 slowest. The default is 2, but lowering it to 1 hasn't noticeably affected my battery life, and roughly 2.5 second (SCI 1) response time is far more reasonable than roughly 5 seconds (SCI 2)

-----------------------------------------------------

20-Change scroll bar size

Navigate to HKey_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\GWE\ and tweak the following values.
cyHScr : Horizontal Scrollbars Height in pixels (default is 13)
cxVScr : Vertical Scrollbars Width in pixels (default is 13)

-----------------------------------------------------

21-Save Attachments or the Whole Email on your SD Card

The Key in WM6 changed from WM5. In WM6 it is:

HKLM\System\Inbox\Settings

For Attachments add "AttachPath" value="\Storage Card\Inbox\Attachments" datatype="string"

For the rest of the email add "PropertyPath" value="\Storage Card\Inbox" datatype="string"

For the paths above to work, you need to have the Inbox folder and Attachments subfolder created already. You must reboot for them to take effect.

-------------------------------------------------------

22-add the AM/PM to your time in the title bar
To Add AM or PM
1) Open your registry editor (either PHM Registry Editor or Resco Explorer 2003).
2) Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\nls\overrides
3) Create 1st String Value: Name = S1159 & String = Am
4) Create 2nd String Value: Name = S2359 & String = Pm
5) Create 3rd String Value: Name = STFmt & String = hh:mm t'M'
6) Soft-reset

There has to be a space after the am or pm otherwise it will not display
Also
am=aM pm=pM
Am=AM Pm=PM

--------------------------------------------------------

23-Changing SoftKeys
Create the following keys and Strings in the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\11 2
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\11 3
112 is the left key and 113 is the right.
Set Default to what you want the key to read (ie. SMS)
Now for each key create a new string named Open and set the target path.

--------------------------------------------------------

24-This edit allows you to see the duration of your Vision connection along with a button to disconnect it.
You see it in the bubble that is displayed when you tap the Vision icon.

Click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Click ControlPanel
Click Phone
[at this point, the buttom grey status bar should read \HKLM\ControlPanel\Phone'
Click the bottom menu 'edit'
Select new dword value

Change the value name to "Flags2" (no quotes).
Select the 'hexidecimal' button.
Type 10
Click ok.
You should now see in the 'name/data' section:

Flags2 16 (0x00010)

When done, reset the device.
