18mar - Black Theme: multicolor selectors added


1- DUSK Taskbar ~ tacchan23 edition
Info:
- credits and special thanks to grzegorz10 for one of the most beautifull taskbar ever made and for giving me the permission to modify it
- WM 6.5.x and 6.5
- (W)VGA - also (W)QVGA for few versions only
- Best used along with one of my Themes below (becouse some of the dll files of the taskbar also contains the images of the Wm6.5.x Softkeybar buttons, and I skinned them with the same style as in my Theme)
- Before installing anything remember to install SDKCERTS.cab from Here Without this the taskbar may not work! (usually not needed for cooked roms)
Bluetooth:
- Not needed anymore to use the BTIconNotifier.exe on Omnia2. I found the OEM .dll file (from Samsung) which contains the BT icons for Omnia2 and, after replacing the icons there, I added it to my taskbar cabs.
- The BtIconNotifierDusk is needed only for some phones which can't display the Bluetooth icon correctly and istead display the standard WM icon (before using it, try if it works without the fix)
HTCvolumecontrol:
- If you have problem with HTC volume control, you may TRY in order the solution belows (if the first doesn't work, try the next):
a) Install this HTCvolume icon fix.cab (uninstall it if it doesn't work or display wrong icons)
b) Go to your registry: HKLM/Software/HTC/VolumeOverlay and delete these regkeys: LoadIconFromResDLL & SoundIconLink
c) Delete the htcvolumecontrol.dll from Windows folder.
d) Send me the original (means u have to uninstall any custom taskbar first) htcvolumecontrol.dll from your ROM and I'll try to fix it.
WindowsLiveMobile:
If the icon while reciving a message doesn't display properly (stock WinMo icon), it means you are using a different version of WLM than the one skinned in my taskbar. Download here the WLMMessengerResources.dll for the version you are using (or try them both if you not sure which version of WLM you have) (WLMMessengerResources.192.dll is for VGA; WLMMessengerResources.96.dll is for QVGA)

I decided to modify my favorite taskbar, the Dusk Taskbar by grzegorz10 for my personal use (mostly I wanted to change the battery to show percent number and to add custom PopUp icons but I also modified few taskbar icons here and there) and to also complete my Themes for WM 6.5.x (some of the bottom bar icons can be modified only in the same .dll files as the ones used in custom taskbars, so the need to integrate my themes with a taskbar)
You can also use this taskbar without any of my themes, but you'll have some "different" bottom bar icons which may not fit your current theme.
Link to my themes:
