here you go.

Alright, this is the first package i've ever made so feel free to throw granades at me for having bugs and.. bugs.

if you do EXACTLY what this says you will get the EXACT setup i have (considering our devices are not running differently for some reason).

MUST install ALL of these on DEVICE (NOT storage card)
1. Install UltimateLaunch -
2. Install rlToday -
3. Install Connstate -
4. Install WeatherPanel -
5. Install Calendar+ -
6. Install NueNobar 1.3 -
!. if you want the hardware keys shortcuts using HButton -
you can install it and run it...
and use the config file i put for you in \Program Files\Hbutton to import my settings to your Hbutton.
check the config files to see what you need to click to run different apps.
for me, Hbutton runs CommManager, iGO8, QUIT, iContact, Enable/Disable WIFI, Enable/Disable BT.
if you need help with that, contact me.
(after installing rlToday,Connstate,Weatherpanel and Calendar+ please go to start/settings/today/items/ and make sure
ONLY UltimateLaunch is marked otherwise you'll get a "DLL Is already active" message).

7. Download Rumball's WeatherPanel Theme and Icons -
You can download ANY version you like BUT:
a. put ALL the ICON files in \Storage Card\Program Files\Manila WP Icons\
b. put the THEME files in \Program Files\MarsWare\WeatherPanel\Themes\Manila
c. a quick note: if you want the 5 day forcast setup i have, rename the Manila.wpl to something else
and then change the file name: Manila-TL-5day.wpl to Manila.wpl
d. i also included a reg file in your \storage card\my documents folder.
incase your weatherpanel setup gets screwed and you start seeing small icons just run the reg file.


9. you will see the WRONG rlToday skin so click and hold on the rlToday skin and choose the Diamond skin

10. In the contacts page you will see 12 contact pictures. you need to switch them with 54x72 icons of your contacts
you should use Any2Icon ( to convert pictures to .ico files to put in
\Storage Card\My Documents\Icons\ContactIcons. Make SURE these icons are named exactly as the icons in this dir.

11. now i need feedback on this.
i put some strings in the registry which are supposed to set Cal+ to show only 1 appointment for the Home Page.
if it works, you won't have to touch it. if and hold the Calendar+ today item in the Home page and choose
to view 1 APPOINTMENT. please let me know if the reg file works automatically so i can delete this section.

Install these on your device if you want the shortcuts i made fit them
HTC YouTube -
RescoExplorer -
RescoKeyboard -
S2V 0.42 -
S2P 0.50 -
moBlue v2.1 -
Thumbcal 1.1.2 -
Batti -
iContact -
Diamond CommManager -
BTRemote -
Now a few more things.

1. If you want the same dialer i have you can install the 2G HTC dialer -
and then install poorlyduck's diamond skin -

2. Gestures:
Home Page --> Up=RescoExplorer Down=SoftReset
ContactsPage --> Up=iContact
AppsPage --> Up=S2P Down=SPBWallet

3. Links
if you click the left side of the clock in the homepage you will get the clock settings
if you click the right side of the clock you will get ThumbCal.
if you click the date in the homepage you will create a new task in thumbcal
if you click the globe in the connectionspage you will get Opera

4. now LAST AND NOT LEAST, go to Start/Settings/Today and choose ClassicBlackDiamond.tsk as your today theme.

5. REMEMBER that you will have to modify the icons and the applications according to your preference. let me know if you need help.

(After everything's done, you will have to edit (either through the UltimateLaunch.ini file or straight through
ultimatelaunch's setup) the phone numbers for the Contacts' Page to fit the numbers you desire).

vjtoggletoday lets you hide your softkeys.. your systray and your taskbar.
you HAVE to use it for this skin.. otherwise you won't have enough room for everything.
(you can obviously not use it and change my ini file as well).

to use the registry file you need:

extract TaskMgr 2.exe and Regedit.lnk to your windows directory and from start/programs run Regedit. after it loads, search for an option to Register Registry files to Regedit so you can run them independently... and run the Vj...reg file. that will do for that.

this regards everyone!!!
in TaskMan2.9 rar file i'm posing here i included Softreset.exe and it's shortcut. both should be put in the /windows directory.

if anyone's interested, i've added a different HomePage look:

I'm posting the rar file needed for this:

what you need to do is:
- install
- put the ini file in your UL directory
- extract the Diamond-NoSMSorMC.rar file into your rlToday directory and in the rlToday options choose the "daemon" skin. (there is a font ttf file included in this rar file, you're invited to put it in your /windows/fonts dir).


EDIT: in the original version of the Diamond Clock for rlToday (which is included with the rar in this post), nothing happens when you click the clock. i edited the XML file which is supposed to go to the /program files/rltoday/daemon folder so that when you click it you can change clock settings. this is important for any of you who uses the alarms. (i use it on a daily basis).

what you need to do is switch the skin.xml file in the /program files/rltoday/daemon folder with the xml provided.

A few changes

- Moved HomePage o2plus and SMS/MMS today plugins to the middle of the screen.
- Changed the rlToday XML to open Clock when left side of clock is clicked and to open Tasks (for those of you who use it a lot like me), when the right side of the clock is clicked.
- Changed the WeatherPanel WPD WPX WPL files to show the fonts in a nicer more centered way and not to be thrown out of the screen.
- Changed one of the icons in the programs section to the calculator instead of thumbcal (which is run by an upwards gesture on the calendar screen).
- Added a margin to the Internet screen so that the icons are detached from the upper part of the screen (easily clicked).

This is what you need:

copy everything from there to the right directories (as they are set inside the rar file).

2 more things.
1. I use HButton to QUIT applications, run iGO8, Comm Manager, iContact, Disable/Enable Bluetooth. this is why they don't appear in the skin.. they're all button controlled. if you need help with HButton let me know.

2. I'm gonna keep all previous posts with the previous files set as they are so that if anyone prefers previous settings he/she can enjoy them.

i took James Kuang's (thank you james) rlToday skin (found at and altered it a bit.. to look.. different (changed the XML to show different fonts, edited the clock background in photoshop to be white... yada yada)
a little lighter and fitting with my UltimateLaunch settings.

What you need to do to get that is download the rar file given here, install VJphoneshortcuts from the rar file, and put the Diamond folder in your rlToday folder in program files. then, choose Diamond as the skin in rlToday instead of the old one. (install VJphoneshortcuts on your DEVICE).

whoever took my last advice and installed o2plus - uninstall it now. i included the same setup within the rlToday skin.

also, when clicking the date on the upper right side, it brings up Thumbcal.. and the other settings are still on. clicking the left side of the clock brings up the clock setting and the right side brings up Tasks.

when clicking the number of sms's or the pic next to it, it loads "Messaging"
when clicking the number of missed calls or the pic next to it, it loads "Call History" (you must install VJphoneshortcuts for the missed calls shortcut to work).
