Touch Tools for HTC 2.0 Suite is a powerful set of applications that lets you modify different settings on your device that would not otherwise be available to you.


There are currently 9 applications that make up the full Touch Tools 2.0 Suite:

Touch Tools - This is the main interface for tweaking various system related settings.

Boot Manager - This give various options like Soft Reset, Hard Reset, Bootloader Mode, Suspend, Power Off and Disconnect Data. Can also integrate to Long Press End Key as an Action Screen.

Snatch Screen - Allows for taking screen shots on the phone by shaking the device which stores them to the specified save location. Includes various options.

Rotation Manager - Allows you to add Auto Rotation for applications you choose. Includes automatic Window Info detection: ClassName, EXE Path etc. Has List Import/Export support.

Slim Volume - Allows you to add support for the Slimline Volume display to applications you choose. Includes automatic Window Info detection and List Import/Export support.

Network Folders - Allows you to make use of your Pocket PC's networking capabilities by mapping shared folders on your PC to your device. Also supports Samba/Linux Shares.

PinchZoom Manager - Lets you add Pinch to Zoom support to your applications easily. Includes automatic Window Info detection and List Import/Export support.

HotKey Utility - Extends the End Key Long Press functionality so you can launch a custom application or a specific command: Soft Reset, Hard Reset, Power Off, Enter Bootloader Mode or Disconnect Data.

System Viewer - Allows you to terminate / view running programs and processes and see a list of Device Services. Includes Export option and Compact Mode.

6. Changed: Touch Tools now loads more or less instantly as it no longer reads all the settings all in one go.

(Please note, .Net Compact Framework 3.5 is required to use the Network Folders application.)
 
2. Minor bug fixes and improvements.
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Touch Tools for HTC - Public Release - PR1.3
This Version is for Windows Mobile 6.5 ONLY!
 
1. Fixed: Now when you select a background in Boot Manager it actually remembers the chosen image on next launch.

2. Fixed: WLAN On Demand function is now enabled and working for HD2 ROMS and the newer Touch Diamond 2 ROMS.
 
3. Fixed: Enabling the Extra Video Recording formats interfered with the Extra Camera Modes option. This has now been rectified.

This Version is for Windows Mobile 6.5 ONLY!
 
1. TD2 Tools is now Touch Tools for HTC. I felt the name needed changing as it now supports multiple devices.
 
2. Added: Full HD2 support. If you are not running Touch Tools on an HD2, the HD2 Options menu will automatically be disabled.

5. Rotation Manager and Slim Volume have been modified to be fully compatible with HD2. No more using the stylus to capture window information. Instead, just simply shake the device to capture the information.
 
6. Added: A neat little utility called Snatch Screen. This has a nice interface and allows you to take device screenshots in multiple formats. Allows you to preview the captured image and then discard or save.
 
7. HD2 options added include: Data Options: Enabling Wireless-N Mode, Show 3G in Comm. Manager which adds the 3G button to Comm. Manager. SMS/E-Mail Options: Show 'Send' button in HTC Messaging and Disable 'Reply All' in E-mail.

8. Added Confirmation On Exit to Program Options so you can choose whether or not to display a confirmation when exiting Touch Tools to eliminate accidental screen taps.
 
9. Changed: Startup Animation settings have now been moved to the Boot Options menu.
 
10. More features coming soon! :)
 
11. Please feel free to buy me a beer! :)

Please consider a donation and/or contribute to the forum to show your support! If you have done one or both of these then PM me with your UIC code and E-Mail address and ill generate an AuthKey for you to remove the Nag Screens!

If you have already donated then PM me with your PayPal Transaction Number, UIC code and E-Mail address and ill send you the AuthKey.

If you have less then 100 posts then you really havent contributed much in which case you will have to put up with the Nag Screens until you contribute to the forum.

If you already have an AuthKey, copy the file into the Touch Tools installation folder, usually located in Program Files. The AuthKey will automatically be installed next time you launch Touch Tools.

Hopefully this new system means that everyone will be able to fully use Touch Tools 2.0 Suite with the only difference being non-contributors and leeches will get the Nag Screens! Good Day!

Okay, after working really hard to add HD2 compatibility to Touch Tools, you may be asking yourself, "Why do we need another tweaking app?"

Well thats a good question, This app offers more or less everything that the other tweaking apps do, but in addition, you can do the following:

- HARD reset capability
- Enable / Disable Manila Clock flips at the click of a button
- Easy to use White List manager for rotating apps with import and export functions.
- Easy to use volume control utility to decide which apps you want to use the slim volume control while using the volume buttons.
- GPS management so you can tweak your settings.
- Phone related settings
- AUTO DATA DISCONNECTION that works
- DATA CONNECTION manager, allows you to turn on/off connections and enable/disable 'Always On' status.
- Show or hide the default games: 'Bubble Breaker' and 'Solitare' from the click of a menu option.

Plus there will be lots more coming! Alot of this development is already complete and working however, there are still some HD2 specific features to implement.

Please post your views and ideas of what you would like me to include.

Remember, its YOUR device, so why not make it YOURS?!

Hi I have considered using the SDK already and decided to make my own controls in the end to get the functionality exactly how I want them.

I also wanted to steer away slightly from the official HTC look and make something with a clear, concise and easy to use GUI.

I stuck with .NET CF 2.0 due to past issues with custom ROMS on the TD2.
