Since NRGZ28 is a busy man (what with all the custom ROM's he's cooking on an almost daily basis), and he's recently implemented Noonski's XDA_UC within his works (that many of us are somewhat/unfamiliar with), I decided to create this thread. It will combine, I hope, the knowledgebase of both NRGZ28's ROM users, as well as those more knowledgable with XDA_UC.

There has recently been discussion within his threads (occasionally spurned by me, mostly by other enthusiasts) as to what registry keys save what information, how to create custom .xml's for programs in his ROM's and how to save programs to specific paths within the Start Menu (which NRG is working on himself now), among many other varied questions, ideas, hacks, etc.

This particular thread will follow specifically the ROM in question: 6.5.5|ROM|WWE| ★ Energy Series 23***/21*** |*** **| ★ Sense 2.5 / 2.1 / Titanium ★, within the subforum of: Touch Pro2, Tilt 2 Windows Mobile ROM Development. Those with questions concerning other variants of his ROMs, or on other devices, should either a) Find the original thread for your particular ROM, or b) Start a new thread like this, much as I'm doing right now!

I will try to keep the first few posts here updated, with proven (meaning: it works for at least MOST users) tips and tricks for TP2 users using the NRG ROMs.

PLEASE: anyone with helpful info, your expertise is more than invited! Please do post here!!!

Forum Rules: Well, first and foremost, follow all forum rules! PLEASE either have your signature up to date, or at least tell us what your specific ROM, phone, network, etc. is! If you came upon a certain tweak here in the XDA forums, please give credit where credit is due!

This post will be reserved for Registry entries (I will eventually clean these up and order them by entry):

Let's start with a few registry examples I've dug up:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Clock] - Alarm clock settings. This is one of my favorite personal finds, as half the time I'm flashing, it's late at night (and according to the night, I might just have a few beers in me and forget to set my alarm for the next day!).
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\FacebookSDK] - Facebook Tab login settings.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\TwitterApp] - Twitter Tab login settings.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\HTCAccountManager] - HTC Settings for YouTube, Facebook and Twitter logins (Note on this one, as was posted here by some unknown-to-me poster: You may have to go to Settings Tab -> Data Services, and Turn the Facebook account OFF, and then back ON again to get profile pic's to show properly thoughout Sense).
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\YouTube] - Fixes the YouTube landscape problem.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live] - Windows Live login settings (until I learn UC and XML a little better, I still have to manually run the app, but these keys save my login, so I don't have to retype it at least).
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\pMSN\SavedUse rs] - Also used by Windows Live app's. [NO space in: ..."\SavedUsers"; not sure why it's showing up there...]

Hope these might help at least a couple of people out. I know the alarm clock setting should come in useful for business/power users (and the occasional lush! )...


From Cranbone:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\BackLight] Backlight Settings
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Sounds] Ringtones
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Soundcategories] Notifications

Thank you: Do you know if these particular setting remain in effect if you use, say, Lumos (for backlight)?

Also, do you know how to IMPORT a new ringtone?

(Not that your input isn't appreciated, it TRULY is here!) I just want More than the... 'cliche' is all.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Not sure what lumos is....is that an app you use? I dont install anything on my phone usually and run it stock

I set up my phone with the settings that I wanted (backlight, ringtones and notifications) and then exported these registry setting and converted them to xml and drop them in the XD_UC folder on my SD card. I also made a cab to add all my ringtones to the rings folder in the windows directory and they all work great for me

Again, thank you for your submission (and a little clarification)

Yes, Lumos is an app that I use; I guess I should check my own registry to see what is added after install/config!

WOW! Thank you!!! With a really quick scan, I can see some wonderful additions!

Whoah? I use Microsoft's MYPhone, and didn't even realize the ringtone association...? Nice find!

Now I'd like to see how to directly import off of SD card during XDA_UC...
