Installed .cab and soft reseted but no icon.

AutoDeviceLockEnable no exists.

What should I do ?

Lock Your device automatically with screen off.


Putting a configurator in your settings:

The registry key to enable it manually:

HKCU\ControlPanel\BackLight\AutoDeviceLockEnable-----------> set to 1.



Here is the original thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=499382&page=1






Found a Program that lets you control the lock settings more easilly, just hit the EASY BUTTON.

always takes me to today screen

Problem solved:
Talking about that autolockscreen

Everytime my phone goes to stand by and I turn the screen back on and unlock it, it shows today screen, and i want it to show the last window or program I was using.

For example using G-remote, I'm using the app and I leave it for a while.. the phone locks automatically and goes to stand by after a programmed time, so when I unlock it I have to open G-remote again from the taskbar.

But, if I lock the screen manually (start menu->lock) this doesn't happen even if I make it go to stand by (by pressing the power button) after I lock it manually.

It only happens if I let it or make it go to stand by without locking it before.

Is this a WM 6.5 lockscreen bug or what? because even if i set the today timeout for a really long time, or just disable it, it keeps happening.

Please help me...


I fixed the problem by installing the smart lock 2.0F
then disabling the autodevicelockenable (0)

Change double spaced menus/windows back to single spaced?

I just switched from using 6.1 for years to 6.5.3. ;)

One of the things that changed, that I would like to change back, is the double spacing in menus and windows. For example, in File Explorer, there is now a large gap now between each file name listed. I assume to allow "fat finger room" when selecting a filename by hand instead of by stylus. However, having more file names listed per screen is more important to me than "fat finger room".

Does anyone know the registry hack to go back to single spacing?

BTW, I know it can be done. I was playing around with themes, loaded a 6.1 theme, and I had single spacing. However, I ended up having to remove that theme because it caused unrelated problems (the icons in the lower taskbar turned into garbage :eek: ).

Can anyone in here help me find a more recent Windows Mobile 6.5.x-ROM for my 'HTC Tytn II' / 'Kaiser'? I've tried Bhar's ROM, but the unlock-slider doesn't allways work.

    Moving the Chromium Lock Slider

    Most of the Hacks for Titanium will come from the ".cpr" files found in the windows directory. Cpr files are simply xml files (and to edit them you will simply need to rename them to .xml, use an .xml editor, and then rename them back to .cpr) ....or you can of course just use the "right-click open as" and open them with word pad, microsoft xml editor, ect.


    In Quote from drkfngthdragnlrd,

    All .cpr's are the skin layout controllers for the respective parts of WinMo 6.5. The Start Manu, Titanium, Lockscreen, Incoming Calls, anything that has a CPR is all part of CHome. All all this stuff is is just a basic shell. WinMo 6.5 otherwise isn't anything new. It's safe to say if you find all the files and regiy it can be ported into 6.1 or even 6.0 as CHome first appeared in 6.0 on the T-Mobile Shadow as Neo.


    If you want to make things simple You can grab the attachment to this post and copy paste it into your Windows Directory on your ppc.





    .....but if you prefer to get down and dirty, everything is explained below:

    If you want a more full synopsis on cpr files before we start you can find it here.

    In this specific Tweak you will want to find the CPR file named LS_LockScene[your resolution here].cpr Once you have it in your XML Editor you will want to find these Keys:

    Code:
    <Slider ID="LockSlider" Top="3" Left="24" Width="192" Height="40" Orientation="Middle" OnPress="ShowNotifications" OnSlideLeftFinal="Unlock" OnSlideRightFinal="Unlock" >
    
        <Text ID="TapOrSlide" Top="45" Left="90" Width="60" Height="12" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="9" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Middle" InnerTextType="Resource" Text="shellresapps.dll,18150">
    
        <Text ID="SlideToUnlock" Top="45" Left="90" Width="60" Height="12" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="9" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Middle" InnerTextType="Resource" Text="shellresapps.dll,18149">
    
        <LockScreenListView ID="Notifications List" Top="51" Left="9" Width="222" Height="235" Columns="1" Rows="4" ItemWidth="222" ItemHeight="46" OnInitComplete="Binding:LockScreen,LS_Notifications">

    These are not the slider itself but will be in the way of where you are trying to move the slider and will need to also be moved:

    Code:
    <LockScreenListView ID="Notifications List" Top="51" Left="9" Width="222" Height="235" Columns="1" Rows="4" ItemWidth="222" ItemHeight="46" OnInitComplete="Binding:LockScreen,LS_Notifications">
    
            <Text ID="DateText" Left="150" Top="17" Width="90" Height="19" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="11" FontStyle="Regular" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Opacity="1.0" >
    
          <Layer ID="Appointment" Left="5" Top="50"  OnInitComplete="Binding:LockScreen,LS_Appointment">
            <Image Width="37" Height="32" Visible="True" Opacity="1.0" ScalingAlgorithm = "TriLinear" Source="\windows\icn_cal_up.png"/>
            <Text ID="Subject" Left="40" Width="180" Height="17" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="10" FontStyle="Bold"  Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" Opacity="1.0" >
              <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetDropBottomRight" Color="#00000000" TextOffset="1" BlurFactor="3" Alpha="1.0"/>
              <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetNone" Color="#FFFFFFFF"/>
            </Text>
            <Text ID="Time" Left="40" Top="18" Width="180" Height="15" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="8" FontStyle="Regular"  Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Opacity="1.0" >
              <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetDropBottomRight" Color="#00000000" TextOffset="1" BlurFactor="3" Alpha="1.0"/>
              <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetNone" Color="#FFFFFFFF"/>
            </Text>
            <Text ID="Location" Left="40" Top="34" Width="180" Height="15" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="8" FontStyle="Regular"  Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" Opacity="1.0" >
              <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetDropBottomRight" Color="#00000000" TextOffset="1" BlurFactor="3" Alpha="1.0"/>
              <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetNone" Color="#FFFFFFFF"/>
            </Text>

    For a QVGA Device you will want to change them to this (to have my set-up):

    Code:
    <Slider ID="LockSlider" Top="250" Left="24" Width="192" Height="40" Orientation="Middle" OnPress="ShowNotifications" OnSlideLeftFinal="Unlock" OnSlideRightFinal="Unlock" >
    
        <Text ID="TapOrSlide" Top="234" Left="90" Width="60" Height="16" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="9" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Middle" InnerTextType="Resource" Text="shellresapps.dll,18150">
    
            <Text ID="SlideToUnlock" Top="234" Left="90" Width="60" Height="16" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="9" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Middle" InnerTextType="Resource" Text="shellresapps.dll,18149">
    
        <LockScreenListView ID="Notifications List" Top="188" Left="9" Width="222" Height="235" Columns="1" Rows="4" ItemWidth="222" ItemHeight="46" OnInitComplete="Binding:LockScreen,LS_Notifications">
    
    <Layer ID="TimeX" Top="3">
          <Image ID="TimeBG" Width="240" Height="52" Visible="True" Opacity="1.0" ScalingAlgorithm = "TriLinear" Source="\windows\LS_TimeBG.png"/>
        
           <Text ID="DateText" Left="150" Top="17" Width="90" Height="19" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="10" FontStyle="Regular" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Opacity="1.0" >
     
    <Layer ID="AppointmentX" Left="29" Top="57">
          <Layer ID="Appointment">
            <ActiveIcon ID="Display Appointment" OnInitComplete="Binding:LockScreen,LS_Appointment">
              <Image Width="32" Height="32" Visible="True" Opacity="1.0" ScalingAlgorithm = "TriLinear" Source="\windows\icn_cal_up.png"/>
              <Text ID="Subject" Left="34" Top="2" Width="150" Height="17" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="10" FontStyle="Regular"  Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" Opacity="1.0" >
                <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetDropBottomRight" Color="#00000000" TextOffset="1" BlurFactor="3" Alpha="1.0"/>
                <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetNone" Color="#FFFFFFFF"/>
              </Text>
              <Text ID="Time" Left="34" Top="34" Width="150" Height="15" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="8" FontStyle="Regular"  Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" Opacity="1.0" >
                <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetDropBottomRight" Color="#00000000" TextOffset="1" BlurFactor="3" Alpha="1.0"/>
                <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetNone" Color="#FFFFFFFF"/>
              </Text>
              <Text ID="Location" Left="34" Top="20" Width="150" Height="15" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="8" FontStyle="Regular"  Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Middle" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" Opacity="1.0" >
                <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetDropBottomRight" Color="#00000000" TextOffset="1" BlurFactor="3" Alpha="1.0"/>
                <TextStage TextOffsetType="TextOffsetNone" Color="#FFFFFFFF"/>
              </Text>
            </ActiveIcon>


    If you would like to change the slider to be located to the left (like s2u) you can change the orentaion of it like this:

    Code:
    <Slider ID="LockSlider" Top="3" Left="5" Width="192" Height="40" Orientation="Left" OnPress="ShowNotifications" OnSlideRightFinal="Unlock" >





    For info on editing the lock slider text go here.




    If you would like to take a look at mine (or just use it and copy it to your device) you can get it from the attachment to this post. A great tool for comparing or merging with you existing changes is WinMerge, see post one for a link.



    WARNING: My file is for QVGA Devices.
    For VGA, try johnrb's VGA version here.

    Only if it's installed I guess. This is how to disable it. Anryl's ROM has it install and turned on by default.

    That's good news. I've been looking for a way to enable it in the first place on 6.5. It doesn't work at all on 21500.
