This is very first version of program many of HTC Diamond owners wanted very much...

This program displays today plug-ins in one of the manila pages.

Build v0.4.1.0 has been removed. There were some problems related to lua scripts compatibility.

Starting from v0.3 MTP has it's own page! Many Thanks to Showaco!

Requirements:
.Net CF 3.5. You do not need to worry about .net memory usage because only MTP Configurator is written on .Net :)

Setup Instructions:
1) Setup MTPInstall.CAB to Main memory
2) Go to programs menu, run MTP Configurator.
3) Choose page to host plug-ins,
choose plug-ins you want to enable. Uncheck "TouchFLO 3D".
4) Click apply button. Close configurator.
5) Go Settings-> Today Disable TouchFlo3D. Click OK. Enable TouchFlo3D. Click OK.
5) Run MTPLoader
6) Selected plug-ins should appear on selected tab.

This is not ready-to-use version. For testing purposes only.

Warning! This program is provided as is. It should not harm you device, but I recommend you to create a backup, before you start. Anyway, I'm not responsible for anything you do to your device :)

FAQ:
  1. Q: How to rename softkey buttons on today page.
    A: Edit HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila\RSKText and HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila\LSKText to change Right and Left softkeys text.
  2. Q: How to remove installed tab:
    A: You can remove tab by calling MTPConfigurator with parameter /uninstall.
    You can register this tab back calling MTPConfigurator with parameter /install.
    Ok. You can do this manually:
    Edit file \Windows\26948339_manila Remove\Add section:
    Code:
    <Page Order="12" Name="today.page" PackageName="HTC" Title="Today Screen">
            <ComponentReference Name="page"                Mode9Path="HTC\today.mode9" Component="GizmoRoot" SmartComponent="true"  />
            <ComponentReference Name="icon_normal"   Mode9Path="HTC\todayicon.mode9" Component="today_Off" />
            <ComponentReference Name="icon_selected" Mode9Path="HTC\todayicon.mode9" Component="today_On" />
            <ComponentReference Name="icon_preview"  Mode9Path="HTC\todayicon.mode9" Component="today_Preview" />
          </Page>
  3. Q: Program says "Load Complete", nothing happened, log file exists.
    A: Most likely incorrect "Target Page" is selected in configurator. Select "Today" as target page.
  4. Q: Doest it support Manila 2D?
    A: No, it does not. I plan to port this program on Manila 2D. Porting requires a lot of work, by now I do not know when you can expect M2D support.


If something goes wrong (How to write a bug report):
  1. Ensure you are using latest MTP version.
  2. Specify any error message you got from MTP
  3. If you receive message that your version is not supported - attach your manila.exe
  4. Specify what device you are using and ROM version
  5. Describe symptoms :), Anything you think might be helpful to resolve your problem. e.g. Did prev. version work; what is happening (does not load, no page, page is empty, page shows up and disappear afther something.. ), etc..
  6. Attach log file \Program Files\ManilaTodayPage\log.txt

Before asking for help, please READ THIS post!!! I'm not going to repeat the same all the time. I will NOT answer your help request if you do not provide me with required info. All malformed requsts will be ignored.

I'm not a Wizard; I can not tell you what you are doing wrong, before you tell me what you actually doing. I'm not going to spend my time helping you if you do not want to spent few minutes and read the thread (or at least first post). No offence, let’s respect each other’s time.


If you are upgrading to a new version, to keep tab order please backup file \Windows\26948339_manila(file is hidden) BEFORE upgrading MTP and restore this file when upgrade is done.

Please send me your manila.exe, I'll add support for this version.

I have the same problem, it says today loaded, then cuts out and launches TF3D back on home page

Please find my manila.exe file at attached. (official ROM:1.35, TF3D 1.0.1630.15)

Thanks for this great application, waiting too long :)

Wow!
I was just thinking about how great it would be if we had something like this...
I think a lot of diamond users use the xbmod port of the Rhodium Manila bugsykoosh referred to. In that port he used a work-around to have it load so there are actually 2 manila exe files as far as I know. Do you think you can manage to make that one work?

It would be great to have this fully working...

I did not dive deeply into Rhodium Manila, but from first look:
1) First manila.exe - simple loader, written on .net - I have nothing to do with this file.
2) manila2.exe is original (or ported version of manila), it looks like this exe contains all functions i need, so I think MTP will work on Rhodium after a little adjustment.

Thank you all for help, I reviewed Rhodium, and I think (95% sure), it will work on Rhodium.

Most likely, today evening (GMT+2) or tomorrow I'll give you updated version.

I hope this updated version will also cover my manila.exe (POST-7: manila_MK.zip,at below coming from (official ROM:1.35, TF3D 1.0.1630.15)) :)

Waiting the update :) Many thanks again

Will this work also for german languages roms?

It does not depend on localization, but does depend on manila.exe version.

By today I had only one version of Manila.exe, soon I'll add support for other versions (Rhodium and other from (mkucuksari's attachment). I plan to create an algorithm which could calculate offsets automatically.

You can provide me with your manila.exe and I'll include it's support to MTP.

I hope, there will be no more than 10 different versions of manila.exe :)

    It looks like your manila.exe is not supported. You can send it to me for analysis but I'm not sure I have to do this in near future. As workaround you can try to upgrade your Rom (just user another version).

    I had already submitted my manila.exe way back on this post:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3705098&postcount=119

    :)


    Thanks so much!

    Just wanted to add that this phone just hit the US market in August of 2008, which makes it less than 9 months old... so this version of manila would be considered to be one of the newest versions out there and there isn't a suitable Rom to upgrade to (CDMA) for this phone (as it is so new). The phone is a HTC Touch Pro. :)

    Same problem for me (on my HD2) ...
    Flashed 3 recents roms from Duttys (CDLC v15, CDLC v17 & Duttys HD2 Fam V1), and all got same problem.
    ROM are based on 2.13/manila 2018 (CDLC v15) and 3.14/manila 2019 (2 last one).
    Stock rom installation, then tried all available mtp version (even the one for nrgz http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=778851), sometime with manila editing. mtp installs fine, is visible, but always message "unable to calculate patch", and no home plugin works.

    If anybody got an idea, it would be great, as I love duttys rom and I want to update my 6 months old rom (by duttys :) ).

    I hope I can run mtp on m2.1 19212117.2.
    thanks a lot.
    I have did my best to do it,but i failed at last!!!!

    You both have tested this one? Look also for step 1 to 7 !!!

    Because it is working on 2.5.1921 and 2.5.2018 on the HD2.
    If not please upload your 26948339_manila file and i will check it.

    Interesting.

    I wonder what is different that allows it to work on 2019 when it is cooked in vs. installed. Did you make your own EXT package? Which version did you use?

    Also, on those missing Today plugins... where they also missing on your Settings>Today> Items tab or just on the MTP Settings page?

    I made my own EXT from v0.5.0.2. Items in Settings>Today>Items do not appear in MTP Settings page. They are: Date, Owner Info, Messaging, Tasks, Calendar, and some other apps that I cab installed.

    What problems are you facing?

    Maybe you want to try my EXT.
