Originally I was posting this it 3 threads. But it belongs in it's own thread so the other threads don't get polluted.
Co0kieMonster monster has a thread that accomplishes this for Manila 2.1. Unfortunately that did not work for VGA Manila 2.1.
For WVGA Devices go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=539107
I took that work and used the tools by stzupy to decompile and make slight changes to allow it to work with VGA. Credit goes to both Co0kieMonster and stzupy.
I only claim credit for making the changes to let this be used with VGA.
I did spend a reasonable amount of time on this, so if you appreciate what I've done and want to buy me a beer by donating, it is appreciated. If not, of course it's free to use. On a side note, I plan to donate to Co0kieMonster and sztupzy based on any donations I recieve for porting this to VGA, since their work made it possible for me to do this work.
Method 1, the cab.
copy the cab to phone.
Launch the Cab
Install to device.
Method 2, Manual
use the reg file to make the needed registry entries ( either use a program or manually create all of them. The reg file can be opened with notepad.
Copy the 3 Manila files to your phone.
Use total commander on your phone to move these to the windows folder.
Please post in this thread links to ROMs that appear to be using without mentioning that this came from JVH3.
I appreciate donations and being asked. And as I noted portions of donations recieved for this will go to Co0kieMonster and sztupzy. It was sztupzy's tools and Co0kieMonster's work on the WVGA device that I started with.
There is a decent amount of work in learning to decompile and compile manila lua scripts and learning what changes affect what, so it was not a trivial task, but nothing in comparison to the total port of Manila 2.1 to VGA that Yozgatg has done.
As of this edit (February 17th, 2010) I have revieved no donations for it. As donations are recieved, I will post the 5 highest donators in this post, along with the 5 most recent.
