Default How-To : disable/remove HTC customizations

Hi everyone

Well, I decided to create this thread because I really don't like HTC customizations and wanted to regroup all the way to disable or remove them.

So, if you're like me, or if you just want a true "Microsoft Windows Phone" then...

Let's go !

- Disable HTC Notification Manager :
HKLM\Services\NotificationManager\Flags = 4

- Disable HTC Notifications Enhancer :
HKLM\System\Shell\Notification\OEM\UseDefaultUI = 1
or
Remove HKLM\System\Shell\Notification\OEM

- Disable HTC Menu :
HKLM\System\GWE\Menu\CUIHandler = 0

- Disable HTC Date Picker :
Remove the key : HKLM\System\GWE\Commctrl\CustomDateTimeCtrl

- Disable HTC Task Icons (battery, signal level...) & Pin Dialer :
Remove the key : HKLM\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps

- Disable HTC Volume :
HKLM\Services\HTCVOLUME\Flags = 4

- Disable HTC CommManager (from Notification bar) :
HKLM\ControlPanel\WrlsMgr\Redirect = ":MSWRLSMGR"

- Enable MS SmartDial :
Remove HKLM\Security\Phone\SmartDial\UI

- Disable HTC Dialer :
HKLM\Security\Phone\Skin\Enabled = 0

TRICK : when you disable HTC Dialer, you lose the auto screen off function using the proximity sensor. But if you want to have the WM Dialer + auto screen off, you can edit this registry key :
HKML\System\State\Phone\PSensorStatus = 1

WARNING : this registry key goes to default (0) after a soft reset. I've made a little mortscript ("Psensor.mscr") that put the PSensorStatus value to "1" when a call is made for the first time after a soft reset. Install Mortscript first, then put Psensor.mscr in your "\Windows\Startup" folder.

- Disable HTC Messaging App :
Use "Zenyee Disable HTC Messaging 1.2.cab"

- Disable HTC Contact Chooser :
Remove keys "HKLM\Security\Contacts\Chooser" & "HKLM\Security\Contacts\PropertyPicker"

- Disable HTC Font in Start Menu :
Remove key "HKLM\Security\Shell\StartMenu"

- Remove HTC Battery & Backlight :
Copy the content of "HTCBB.zip" in your Windows directory and overwrite the files.

- Remove HTC Device Info :
Copy the content of "HTCDI.zip" in your Windows directory and overwrite the files.

- Get MS Keyboard (or others MS SIP) back (thanks to mnet - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=604023) :
HKLM\Software\HTC\ezsip\SIPMenuEnableMSSIP = 1
then

Keyboard -> HKCR\CLSID\{42429667-ae04-11d0-a4f8-00aa00a749b9}\IsSIPInputMethod\Default = 1
Block Recognizer -> HKCR\CLSID\{42429691-ae04-11d0-a4f8-00aa00a749b9}\IsSIPInputMethod\Default = 1
Letter Recognizer -> HKCR\CLSID\{42429667-ae04-11d0-a4f8-00aa00a749b9}\IsSIPInputMethod\Default = 1
Transcriber -> HKCR\CLSID\{F0034DD0-2AD4-11d1-9CB0-E84BE8000000}\IsSIPInputMethod\Default = 1
Phone Pad -> HKCR\CLSID\{51A2CB38-154E-4C92-A625-A83871C99EC2}\IsSIPInputMethod\Default = 1

To be continued...

Dear LPaso

Thanks a lot for this thread...I am too very willing to destroy any residual presence of HTC!

Still I am unable to restore the full MS Outlook Contact (as I PM to you earlier)...please can you look into this issue?

Thanks a lot

Added a script to have the proximity sensor working with the default WM dialer.
