Default {ForeLayer} TroutMob and Mr Kurt Willems Present. A lil Bit-o-Fore Skin ;) Please Add

So CoOkie developed this amazing new layer at my request and hid it in the registry settings of the new and EFFING AMAZING CHT2.0 setup.. .

Now you have seen some of the neat stuff we have been trying to do with CHTS (scheduler) but this is something different.. and well.. simple..

But can have unlimited potential.. and can do all the crazy **** your mother warned you about...

Ok .. maybe not .. but it CAN do some really cool stuff.

Its Called "ForeLayer" and its exactly what it sounds like.. its a layer placed almost as high up onto the layers of the phone as possible.. skinning over the top of everything BUT the taskbar and CHT2 slider.

But the cool part? It has ZERO click interruption!! So you could lets say .. put some fish floating in the middle of your screen.. that will stay there on top of your icons , clock, ect.. but NOT interfere with click or swypability.


__________________________________________________ ______
So here is a thread for all of us playing with this to post your own

Please include 2 files.. one on top of a wallpaper.. and the .png file itself.

Remember.. you can save them as anything you want.. but for them to load into the phone it must be placed into the appropriate folder and named ForeLayer.png then the phone has to be soft reset...

Here is the RegEdit Cab thanks to Kurt (since i am an absolute moron when it comes to cabbing registry files apparently, and i was making people use regedit and assign values..)

Well... he made it a super simple .cab and after its installed.. all you have to do is drop your new files into the folder.. rename is appropriately and reset.

We included 3 of the first ones i built. The Fish , Broken Screen (*looks REALLY effin real) and Water.. lol... Have Fun.


Ps Only supports 480x800 for now.. it will sit on top of 960 and 1440 but the file itself must be 480.

using the cab file the forelayers are now in the phone root in a folder called "ForeLayer"

Reason, I would create something that let you easily changed the ForeLayer between your collection.
After two day's of thinking and 8H to fining out way it would work in the first place finally I have found it!

Like Albert Einstein; I didn't fail 100 times, I just found 100 ways how it didn't work

Just download the cab file and you can begin

Instruction guide; Image gives more information than text:

After selection this application will do automatic a manila reset so nothing to do fore you!

PS: I have think about it, if you will you can translate this aplication to your language.

Instructions: Download the "StringsFL.zip" File. Extract it you will discover the "StringsFL.ini" file; and translate the text!
Only the text I mention here below in blue!!!
Save your "StringsFL.ini" File and set it in the \Windows folder in your device.




Pleas let me know your opinion; Okay it is my first time I make this so there is always place fore improvement.

go to the forelayer folder on your storage card and rename forelayer.png to forelayerglass
then rename forelayerfish or tank to forelayer and softreset
