Lightbulb CHome Configurator for WM6.1: Version 1.1.0.5 FINAL (UPDATED - 2008/07/11)

If you are using a smartphone running on Windows Mobile 6.1, this small utility might be useful for you. It allows you to switch on/off and change the display order of the sliding panels on any CHome homescreens. It could also be used to customize all custom panels based on CWelcomeCenter and Settings plugin.

This is the final version which has all the features that I have planned to do since the beginning. Please try it out and report you find any bugs. Have fun.

PS: Thank rickwyatt for the dialer extracted from his ROM and everyone else who contributed the icons.

Download the ZIP version if you have trouble installing .CAB on your device.
If you are using Ricky ROM v24 with CHome Configurator preinstalled, unzip CHomeConfig_Ricky_ROM_v24.zip to \Windows folder of your device.

Thumbs up I Must Say:

This is really nice, I do have a reg editor, which is really all this is. But it has a great GUI, and unlike the OldSAPFavorites, it actually works like it's supposed to work.

I am really impressed by the author, and heck I might even try to improve on this. Although I don't really see how.

Props to the author, and to everyone who hasn't checked this out, it's definitely worth the time. It takes you to exactly what you want to edit. Updates it perfectly.

Rock on!!!

Aww man... This GREATLY eliminates the headache of having to do this through the registry! It's pretty much the same process--just a more user friendly interface!
In my future, there are no errors. Only...Syntaxx.

This is already available in the current version. When the focus is on Pictures box, press the right softkey and select one of the 2 options available.

Ops! Stupid me. Should try the apps first before commenting.
Anyway how about a module to modify the layout - changing the cpr file's fontsize, text placement and slide size. Make a visual presentation of changes being made.
Currently in order to see changes made to the cpr file, require changes in the settings>homescreen.

Thanks and thanks for such a useful apps.

And how do you propose he accomplish that ? You STILL have to reload the CHome plugin to see your changes. Besides, making a GUI editor for the CPR files could prove to a huge pain in the ass, probably not worth his time
