//edit: I edited the Topic name so that all people using TouchFlo2D rather than only people using udKsyrius come and check this out. Most of the skins that are released/going to be released are actually more TF2D related than syrius.//

First off, I want to thank udK for the great rom. It has its flaws but Im sure you will fix this. Anyway, I wanted to contribute to this beautiful design so I made an image and an animation for the boot sequence that match the syrius look, the last "WM61" image is vista inspired. Hopefully udK will use the "udKsyrius.bmp" in ROMUpdateUtility in his future syrius roms, no offence. The .zip is attached at the bottom of this post.



Note: The preview is here to give an idea of the sequence and is not like the real thing which is a bit faster and better.

I do not take responsibility for anything that might go wrong during the following steps. I had no problems trying this out and neither should you.

1. Extract the all files.

2. Connect your Polaris to the PC.

3. copy files "WM61.png" and "syrAnimated.gif" to "\windows\" directory

4. Use a registry editor (like PHM registry editor) and modify the following keys:

(a) "\HKLM\Software\HTC\HTCAnimation\StartupGif\" to "\Windows\syrAnimated.gif"
(b) "\HKLM\Software\HTC\StartupAnimation\GIFFile\" to "\Windows\syrAnimated.gif"

(not sure what the difference between (a) and (b) is but when I only changed one of them, can't remember which one, the animation was not updated)

(c) "\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Splash Screen\MSBitmap\ to "\Windows\WM61.png"
(d) "\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Splash Screen\CarrierBitmap\ keep? "\Windows\welcomehead96.png"

(not sure what this last one (d) does, doesnt seem to do anything in the syrius r0 rls. I did not change this key)

5. Last but not least you open the "ROMUpdateUtility" folder and flash your Polaris with the "ROMUpdateUtility.exe".
(note: even though this is a very simple step you should not do it if you are not familiar with flashing ROMs.)

Also, I have an iContact and a S2U2 design in the same look as Touchflo2D and then an, in my opinion, visual improvement to the TF2D digital clock. All this will be given to you in the next couple of days. Dont hesitate to suggest other apps where the TF2D look can be applied. If this is a program that is popular or I could find usefull then I would be happy to make a skin.

Touchflo2D digital clock improved looks with whiter digits.
(note: zip is attached to first post)

Default (L) vs ice-digits (R)

In the default version of the digital clock all the images are transparent but in the ice-digits the numbers and the colon is non-transparent making them whiter. Since I dont use the AM/PM image I left it as it is, also it can be a nice look to have it a bit transparent while the numbers are white. I used the same font so there should be no other difference in looks other than the ice-digits being whiter and because its in a zip file you can combine it to your own liking having the colon transparent if you want.

1. Extract the files.

2. Connect your Polaris to the PC.

3. Copy file "hh_hm_colon.png" and files "hh_hm_digit_X.png" (note X=every number) from "ice-digits" to "\windows\"

(If you want to go back to the default look do step 2. and 3. but use the files from the default folder)

Nice initiative!
I am trying to get t9 in other languages with a cab specifically for syrius. My first goal is Dutch, but other languages should be easy once I got one working. But I have some difficulties, for instance the shareware version of wince cab manager doesn't support importing of reg files. Are there programs better capable of handling cab files? I don't find it worth 100 bucks...
The cab I'm working on is based on the Modaco multilanguage pack. It got all the kdb files needed, I just need to get the registry changed correctly...

Ok man, but I dont know very much about that kind of stuff. I have designs and skinning as a hobby and in that field ask me anything, but other than that I dont know very much. Al I can say about your issue is that I tried a swedish t9 and now none of the t9s work but I dont think that is any help at all...
