    Post Rwatch USB Drivers

    The default "Com Port" option uses these drivers by the looks of things: http://www.x-drivers.com/catalog/drivers/mobile_phones/companies/mediatek/models/mtk_usb_drivers/26566.html I also spotted that it installs as a generic mass storage sort of driver if the watch is turned off when you plug...

    Post [Q] Terrible Battery Life - Hardware Fault?

    had already tried a diff battery (did you know you can chew a corner off a touch pro 2 battery and make it fit??) Which i know worked fine in the old nicked dz and imo as i was getting same issue ruled out battery problem. anyway... phone has now been returned and i'm waiting 2-3 weeks to get...

    Thread [Q] Terrible Battery Life - Hardware Fault?

    I've had my new desire z about 2 weeks now, and am utterly dissapointed by a frankly dreadful battery life. It's my second DZ, given the original was nicked, but (kicks self) wasn't insured, so was purchased from a supplier that shipped my phone from Hong Kong (I live in UK, and the new phone...

    Thread [Q] MMS Messaging - O2 uk

    Cutting a long story short, I lost my last phone, and replaced it, via EBay, with a touch-pro 2 I was hoping for a uk unbranded, but alas, my money saving skills meant I wound up with a US Cellular TP2 I've had the phone a few weeks now, but am totally unable to get MMS working in a...

    Okay, i'm gonna unlurk... There a few nice suggestions out there, and certainly a few i'd like to get my teeth into - never worked with command line params in WinMo before! However, i refuse to make any promises regarding timescales... a few things in my life (mostly positive :)) flew off...

    Post [APP]BGSwitchPPC - Change Today Screen Background Image Automatically

    well, I'm speccing it at the moment, probably take me a week or so to write the actual code (My evenings tend to get tied up doing other stuff). But fingers crossed, should have something by next weekend.

    Post [APP]BGSwitchPPC - Change Today Screen Background Image Automatically

    cool, i should be able to do that. As a word of warning, I can't garauntee that changing the original file will make these progs auto update. it might be they cache the bg somehow (an issue that caused me a few probs with the tday bg) But changing additional BGs should be doable. Will take me...

    deio: What phone / version of WinMo are you using? I've only got my X1 for testing and the Windows Mobile SDK Emulators. Therefore only tested on WinMo 6.1 and 6.5. I'll have the timer based update wrote today I reckon, just need to get some coding done between watching old lost eps :)...

    Post [APP]BGSwitchPPC - Change Today Screen Background Image Automatically

    how long are we talking about the OS hanging here? it takes a few seconds, maybe 5 to 10 on my phone to do the file copies when you're setting an image. I get the spinning timer, and don't believe i've tried to access the start menu, although I doubt it'd work. I imagine it would lock for...

    Post [APP]BGSwitchPPC - Change Today Screen Background Image Automatically

    The program doesn't remain in memory. It sets itself to run as a notified program at the appropriate time. Much the same as a windows scheduled task. I should be able to make it run every xx minutes as opposed to at a set scheduled time though. So watch this space!

    Post [UTIL] BGSwitchPPC

    currently I'd imagine not, and I'm not aware of a program that is, although it's more than likely there is one. I do have a copy of spb shell 3.5 (at least i think it's 3.5) from my winmo 6.1 days however, so it may be a feature i work in sooner rather than later, so watch this space (or more...

    This is my first ever smartphone app, but it's based on a full-fledged windows app of mine that I've been using for a few years now. Basically, I like to change my desktop background alot, each time I log on in fact. So I wanted something similar for my phone. Also, I wanted a way of having an...

    Wow, that's quite an error! I'll code in a catch to stop that happening, plus fix the other error above

    Post [UTIL] BGSwitchPPC

    honestly, I don't know. It works by changing the image files used by the today screen, so unless these apps pick up and use the today screen bg, I'd doubt it. It might be in future I modify the app to do this, but as I use neither program, especially since the win 6.5 today screen, it won't be...

    Post [UTIL] BGSwitchPPC

    interesting... I think it's because you don't have any stwater images in your windows directory, maybe. don't have the source code to hand right now, but I'll try and sort it out tomorrow if I get a chance. This will be sorted! :D

    tabs? Like the xperia button thing I never use? Thought you couldn't change the BG on most of those? afaik, becuase of the way it works, it'll only change the wallpaper for the today screen. but it'll do it for both screen orientations. (Different if wanted) good to see some people getting use...

    Post Programatically update today screen image

    Okay, I've managed to do this. Via a hacky work-around. Basically, I realised after a bit of playing, that if you set a "normal" wallpaper, all it does is create a registry key. But, rather handily, the start menu and lock screens (lock was also affected by this bug) would see this change, and...

    been using this a few days now, and i have to say i'm mightily impressed. good work :) I must admit i'm slightly confused on one part. The new flashy interface is TouchFLO, yes? I thought this was a HTC-only app? i.e. not part of WinMo 6.5? I'm only asking, because this is suposed to be a rom...
