MANILA v2.0 QVGA for WM6.5


I'm not able to provide any support anymore to this thread since I don't have any Windows mobile device left. My old HTC Polaris is running on Android now. So if you have any questions just post it here or use search, don't PM me because I probably won't answer.

Good luck,


Manila v2.0 have been leaked from HTC. The great thing with this version is that it comes from HTC Mega, a.k.a Touch2 which have native QVGA screen resolution so there is no need for porting or resizing of applications.
Big thanks goes to Da_G who made available to all of us build 19171723 and conflipper for latest build 19191432. Raw HTC Mega build 19171723 packages are here and build 19191432 packages are here.

Originally Da_G posted Mega packages for cookers so they can cook into Roms. I just made a quick cab so anyone can benefit and try out before your favorite cookers will release new Roms. Making cabs still takes some time so I'll add other Mega cabs later.
It is released as is, so it may or may not work on your device.

  • new home tab with flipping clock and weather widget [only in build 19191432 from 23-09-09]
  • it has new folderview (bugless finally), works flawlesly, also All settings soft key now is working properly with WM6.5.
  • footprints widget is working with latest build 19191432, but its not included. You have to install apart.
  • there is new Sound Control canvas in settings tab
  • there is new Mail Setup canvas in settings tab (needs Email Setup Wizard and New Mail Account cabs to work, link below)

In my opinion the biggest change in this Manila version is HTC new approach to finger friendly menus, settings and applications in tight integration with Manila. The rest you can see in screenshoots.

  • original version works only on WM6.5. I included patched version which should work with other phones and WM6.1 (thanks to mbarvian and silymore)
  • this is only WWE version, its not translated yet to other languages.
  • if you had any previous version of Manila, don't forget to uninstall it and do soft reset before installing this version. Also keep in mind that it will keep your personal settings, like people tab photos, weather cities or launcher number of rows/clomuns.
  • Manila customizer theme manager won't work properly since home tab is totally revamped by HTC
  • to set Opera as default browser in Manila you need to change the following registry settings:
    "OperaEXEFile"=<Path to Opera>
  • Apparently leaked Manila files are beta version and for that reason debbug logger is enabled in some applications by default. So you will have to disable it by deleting this registry key as soon as you have finished installing all programs.They key will reappear, but don't worry, it will not log anything.
  • If original Notification Enhancements or some other system cabs does not work for you try SDK signed cabs from link below.
  • For Weather patched Manila version look in this post. Currently only for WM6.5. (thx to S.V.I)
  • If you have Sprint or other non HTC device and SMS button does not work for you then look for fix HERE (thx to Vancer)

As I already told this version of Manila is very tightly integrated into HTC Mega package and it is almost impossible to have clean standalone version. Nevertheless it is possible to run it with minimum requirements without problems, so don't expect to work every single function and module. Also this version is designed for WM6.5 and it may not work flawlessly with WM6.1.

To run Manila with base functionality you will need to install these cabs:
(you will have running Manila with basic tabs working. Obviously Album, Audio Manager and Settings tabs won't work or work partly, but it gives aproximate idea ans feeling about this Manila version)
  1. [WM6.5] HTC 2DManila - it have now flipping clock and animated weather in home tab!
    Important! For weather update to work you must install geo localisation files. Also its known issue that weather in home tab does not work on CDMA phones.
  2. HTC Scroll
  3. HTC Shared Modules
  4. HTC Framework
  5. HTC DRM Middleware
  6. HTC HTCAnimation

... and for a little more functionality a little more cabs:
(if all cabs are installed successfully you will have fully functional Manila. In case something does not work for you try SDK signed cabs in link below)

Donate to Me
Skins and other Manila enhancements
Here is Manila with optimized graphics and skinned to black theme. Graphics size was reduced down from 11Mb to 3.2Mb (Gain of7Mb!!!). Big thanks to S.V.I who did this titanium job of editing over 700 files. Launcher tab is disabled by default as WM6.5 have its own good launcher.
I also resized Phones Canvas and reduced size down from 1.7Mb to 466Kb (Gain of 1.3Mb). Just so you know to gain more performance some of the graphics is stored in \Windows\ManilaGFX folder.
P.S. PM me if I forgot somebody or something

edit: installed some fixes that were added in previous versions of herg and now everything works great

Do you mind sharing exactly what you did to get this version of Manila to run? I cant seem to get this to working on Farah's WM6.5.
