[APP][VGA][01.DEC.09]Manila 2.5.192X VGA Port (only for cooks)
After many different approaches, many different Threads and many hundreds of Posts, here is the definitive rollup thread with:
VGA Manila aka. HTC Sense 2.5 Current ported Manila Version: 2.5.19202525 Working in progress Version: 2.5.19211619
This topic is only for chef's who want to cook Manila 2.5 in their roms!!!
To make cab's is impossible (at the moment), because there are too many different packages which are necessary for Manila 2.5 to work properly!!! (nearly the complete EXT part of the LEO ROM)
Main differences between Manila 2.1 and HTC Sense 2.5:
new Home tab with
> weather forcast, location under the clock and animated weather background
> quick-links (custom links to programs, contacts or other Manila features)
> Animated Backgrounds
New People tab
> All People now improved with better search, Facebook connection, Event view and Groups
Internet Tab now with Preview of the favorite sites
Pictures & Videos and Music Landscape view in fullscreen
Weather with "My Locations" using integrated GPS and Google Maps
much more powerful Footprints tab
integrated Date and Time pickers
All settings integrated in Manila (incl. Programs, Accounts, Sounds, SIP, Location, Memory, Date, Language/Locale)
> never see native Windows Settings again!
Manila 2.5 VGA Porting Progress & Downloads
You can found all the newest update of ported Manila 2.5 files/packages.
All the porting progress (changelogs) can be found here >>
All the work files can be found here >>
- Album added
- Dshow moved to "required"
The packages are WWE only. For language files (muis) you have to dump an original rom in your language.
NORES = Package does not depend on screen resolution
WVGA = FULL Package optimized for WVGA devices
VGA-FULL = FULL Package optimized for VGA devices
VGA-ADD = ADDON Package optimized for VGA devices <- INCLUDES ONLY PORTED FILES
You can choose which ORIGINAL packages you want to cook (CFC or Non CFC)
Important: ORIGINAL WVGA version must match the PORTED VGA package version (i.e. both WVGA & VGA packages need to be either 1920 or 1921, do not mix the two)
File Placement in Kitchen
After you download and extract all 3 packages, you will have folders similar to this:
Why Numbered Directories (010_XX, 011_XX, 020_XX) ???
Ervius Visual Kitchen will read and process the EXT directories in alphabetical order, i.e. the '010' files will overwritten by identically named files in '011',
and '011' files will be overwritten identically named files in the '012' directory, and so on.
ORIGINAL WVGA packages contain all manila files, the PORTED VGA only contained ported files. By placing the ported packages later in the Kitchen directory structure, we will overwrite the WVGA files with the necessary VGA versions, while other files that are required will remain in tact for the build.
And For Tweaks Files?
You can create new package(s) group(s) with higher numbers than the PORTED VGA Package, for example: 030_Tweaks_Manila
Execute Erviuskitchen.exe, and smell the success... ( other users with more competance can explain how to cook the ROM )

Need some answers, please look at here, It will help you to troubleshooting your problems.
Manila 2.5 VGA Updating Info
Update Your Manila without cooking
If you already cook and flash Manila 2.5 into your device, but want to test or update your Manila 2.5 with the latest files (without re-cooking and re-flashing your ROM), make sure you know about it:
Update package which contain XML File(s)
Make sure you delete \Windows\ManilaFull.xml in your device before you restarting the manila
Copy XML files into both \Windows and \Windows\ManilaXml
Update package which contain DLL File(s)
Make sure you disable the manila before you copy the files: Start->Settings->Today->Items->Uncheck HTC Sense
After it copyed, you can reenable the manila by Checking the HTC Sense
Natives File Manager or Default ActiveSync/WMDC Explorer may not replaced the file correctly. Instead use Total Commander or Resco Explorer or other 3rd party mobile file manager, or use tools like Pocket Controller for desktop.
More GUI Modifications
Manila Locker MOD by Kisja & amarullz
Modded Manila: This mod DOES NOT WORK with Max Manila, or other mods which change the home screen!
Version: RC 2.1
Changes RC 2.1:
better battery scaling (0>10>25>50>90)
helper app doesn't touch backlight settings if backlight changing is disabled
helper app code optimized
another force fullscreen fix
Changes RC 2:
Autolock on suspend
- monitors system power state
- locks if power button pressed
- locks if system enters standby on timeout (power setting)
auto power off after timeout if locked (fixes idle timer reset by touch events)
unlock on incoming call (optional setting)
-> if enabled: will full unlock on incoming call
-> if disabled: dialer will be on top
-->> dialer buttons can be used (eg. slide2answer or normal answer button)!
-->> Only HW keys will be locked!
-->> Backlight will be turned on, and after call it will be turned off again.
lock after call finished, if locked before the call started (optional setting)
allow appointments and alarms on top
turn on backlight on incoming call
force fullscreen if locked (bugfix)
optional setting to enable/disable vibration
optional setting to enable/disable background animation
Cab deletes ManilaFull.xml automatically (setup.dll by amarullz)
New language files (but missing 3 new options): 040c, 0410, 0419, 0804
simply copy the files from the PACK folder to \Windows on your device.
UPDATE: and copy Settings_Pages.xml to "\Windows\ManilaXml" AND "\Windows"!
If you are using 12Quicklinks or BG4ALL, copy the files from the according folders aswell.
Delete \Windows\ManilaFull.xml and restart Manila, or the configuration screen won't work!
Do not forget to import the configuration reg.
If you are not using any mods for the home tab, you can use the cab instead of copying the files manually.
If you don't see the configuration menu item ("Settings" -> "Personalize" -> "Manila Locker"), then the setup failed to delete \Windows\ManilaFull.xml, delete it by hand and restart.
All settings can be changed under "Settings" -> "Personalize" -> "Manila Locker". Check out the app.reg to cook settings in.
NOTE FOR RC2: Susped timeout has to be configured with Home.lock.SuspendTimeout manually in reg! Default is 30 seconds after lock.
WM 280XX: this does not work on 280XX builds correctly, because the Manila window never gets fullscreen. So the windows top and buttom bars are even visible if locked. It has something to do with the repositioning of the manila windows to fit the 280XX layout.
no autolock on AC (optional)
SuspendTimeout setting in settings page (dropdown box)
slide gesture for lock (instead of the lock in upper right corner)
WVGA version (work in progress)
Thanks go to: Nik3r for help with backlight jmckeejr for locker gfx
And again! Modded Manila: This mod DOES NOT WORK with Max Manila, or other mods which change the home screen!
Well, now we only have Core and Calendar of version 1921, others remains 1920 and some even unchanged in the 1921 package btxakita posts(as he stated, only Calendar, Core, Home, Music and Twitter has been updated). So I suggest you should release packages in full version, like Manila_Calendar_VGA_1_0_19211621_0.
