Default [SOLUTION] WM 6.5.x Start Menu Replacement WVGA/VGA/WQVGA/SQVGA/QVGA/HVGA

Well I didn't coded nothing new, just tweaked and adjusted some programs to get a free working Start Menu Replacement solution. It gives you about 15 - 20 MB of more free RAM.

Many of us use the great xTask Manager. As you already now, this tool can replace the Start Menu. I cabed the newest xTask Manager 2.3b4 allong with the settings for Start Menu replacement and with files that disable the starndard WiMo Start Menu.


It works on WM 6.5.x (didn't tested it on WM 6.5) and on WVGA/VGA/WQVGA/SQVGA/QVGA/HVGA resolutions.


If you are already using xTask - please BEFORE you install my cab file, DELETE the file xt.reb from your Storage Card or MOVE it to another folder because this file is a backup file for xTask Manager settings.

In the xTask settings you can enable the Alpha Blending for Transparent Start Menu.


CAUTION: PLEASE BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE INSTALLING!

Quote:
This is All-in-One Package.

1. Backup your system in the case that you don't like it. Normally you can also uninstall it, but you never knows.

2. Install my cab.

3. Reboot.

Changelog

1. Added Support for SQVGA
2. Added Version where ActiveSync is not automatically closing. (Some problems with syncing are now fixed)

First version was downloaded 118 times.
This is how the new Start Menu look like:

This looks great!
From all I read I did not succeed to figure it out -
How do you uninstall / make inactive the normal WM start menu?

When you empty the start menu files (files with nothing inside) the start menu cannot read them and does not start.
(HTC Elfin) sold it
(Samsung Omnia i900L) sold it
SGS I9000T stolen
SGY S5360L sold it
LG P970 (OB) sold it
LG L9 P768g, TELCEL, Stock ROM 4.1.2 V20a (still looking to unlock bootloader without success)

I added the empty Start Menu files for all resolutions, including registry entries for showing Start Menu button. I set the xTask Manager for replacing the Start Menu, exported xTask reg entries and bundled everything, incl. the last xTask Manager version into a cab file.

xTask also have additional German and Russian MUI files.

I am sorry for you - but this has nothing to do with a Bluetooth sync, because there are no alteration of the Bluetooth function.
