[APP][May21.v0.29b] High Resolution Wallpaper & Slider Editor [all tabs] Cab Creator

This is a small program that will allow you to create high resolution wallpapers for the TouchFlo 3D interface from any image.

Tested on HTC Touch HD, HTC Touch HD 2, HTC Touch Diamond 2, HTC Touch Pro 2, Dutty's Extreme ROMs, Manila v2.0, v2.1, v2.5, HTC Sense
Portrait & Landscape Mode
.NET Framework v3.5 required
.NET Compact Framework v3.5 required for HDWallS

Creating a high resolution wallpaper in 3 steps:

1. Load Image - Press "Load" or drag&drop the image, select crop & resize options or "Auto Crop & Resize"
- optional: Press "Landscape" & repeat step 1
2. Create CAB File - Press "Create CAB", select "Include Landscape / Portrait Wallpapers", press "Convert", then "Create CAB".
3. Copy and install the CAB on your device


- Please select the Profile for your device under "Config". You can press the "Set default" button on the right to make it your default profile.
If you get a white background, select a "... - No Compression" Profile

HDWallS - CAB Wallpaper Browser

- Copy cab wallpapers created by HDWall > v0.24b in a folder on your device, e.g. "\Storage Card\Wallpapers CAB". Copy cab files & the thumbnails created by HDWall Cab Creator, e.g. "MyWallpaper.cab" & "MyWallpaper-P.jpg". If no thumbnail is found, a standard icon will be displayed.
- Install HDWallS_v0.24b.cab (from the HDWall folder), start the application from the Start Menu.
- On the first run, select the cab wallpaper folder (can be changed later from "Options").
- Select the wallpaper and press "Set Wallpaper"

- Install only cab files created with HDWall > 0.24b, cab files created with previous versions & "Restart TouchFLO" enabled may freeze during installation.

Slider Icon Editor

1. Press "Slider" in the Main Window
2. Select the icon by using the slider

The fine print:
- Install HDWall on your PC, not on the device
- Install HDWallS on your device, not on the PC
- Select an appropriate name in "Application Title" in the "Create CAB" Window to avoid uninstallation of other cabs with the same name.
- Select "default wallpaper" / "weather wallpaper" in TouchFlo 3D (for some versions)
- There is no need to restart the device after CAB installation, except for applying the taskbar / softkeybar images.
- Disable any "background for all tabs" addons, except for the official Co0kieMonster HQWallpaper patch.
- Disable the default wallpaper for the Home Tab in Manila v2.1 & HTC Sense by removing the data found at HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila\HomeBackgroundPath (don't delete the key, just the valuedata)
- If you get the error "-2147024891" when installing a cab with HDWallS, you can install the cab files manually from File Explorer or try lowering the security policy on your device by changing HKLM\Security\Policies\Polices --> change "0000101a" to "1"
- Change the start menu background in WM 6.5 from Settings - All Settings - Today, or "right click" on an image in File Explorer & select "Set as background".
- If your computer screen has a lower resolution than your phone use the "Zoom out" button on the main window
- On Co0kie's Home Tab v.1.8.5 don't install the wallpaper patch, select "HDWall" in CHT Editor - Miscellaneous - Wallpaper mode, then apply the changes.

Didn't work for me, but then I'm on Dutty 2.6 and I'm assuming the manila files are different.

I also had trouble getting the app to generate the manila files. I resized a pic, loaded it into the app and clicked create png. Then clicked compress. Although I had several CMD windows open/close and the app stated that it had created the manilas in the same directory as the source image, no manila files were actually created.

What I did to get output files was before clicking create png and compress, I changed the output directory from where the source file was located. Then, when I clicked compress, the CMD window froze open and I had to close it manually. Twice I did this, but the output files appeared in the directory I had specified. Odd, huh?

The file compression can take several minutes so please wait for the command windows to close. I have not done this asynchronously yet, so the main app freezes until the cfc app in the cmd window ends.

I'm having an odd issue with this app. When I click Compress, the CMD windows
comes up and disappears but the 2 manilla file's can't be seen.

Here's what it say's in the app:

Code:
Converting PNG -> QTC... Please wait...
Compressing QTC -> CFC... Please wait...
Padding file... Please wait...
Created C:\Documents and Settings\Dally\My Documents\HTC Touch HD Stuff\Wallpapers\70083a29_manila
Converting PNG -> QTC... Please wait...
Compressing QTC -> CFC... Please wait...
Padding file... Please wait...
Created C:\Documents and Settings\Dally\My Documents\HTC Touch HD Stuff\Wallpapers\77feee1d_manila

Weirdly enough, when I downloaded Rozenthal's example wallpapayer "BlackEarth" from the Tutorial thread, I could see the manilla file's in the .RAR archieve
but couldn't see them whe I extracted the files.

Hope someone can help :)

do not put yr original jpg file too deep into the directories tree (like hd\highres\test). the program can not handle it.
build a directory close to the root (like c:\test).

I'm having exactly the same problem. I'm using the an Original ROM and when I
copy over the 2 Manilla file's into the Windows DIR, nothing get's overwritten.

Also v0.2b solved my earlier problem :)

Thank you

I guess the files in original ROMs have different names.
If you want to find them, you have to copy *_manila files from the windows folder on your device, then use CFC GUI to find the ones that look like the default wallpaper (512 x 512 for the top slice and the bottom slice 512 x 256 which is black)

I can do what your sayin Maranell0, but how do I access the windows folder
of my device using ActiveSync?

It doesn't seem to let me do this.

Edit:

I can see the folder now, had to set show all folders in XP to access it

Now for some odd reason I can't seem to copy the neccessary manila file's to the
windows directory of my device.

Gives me a permission error everytime :mad:

I've tried doing this with XP as well but still no luck.

Total Commander isn't helping either.

EDIT:

I managed to copy both manila file's over but the wallpaper is still the stock one.

Here are the manila file's I think I had to replace

1ae0036d_manila - The bottom bit
7def6761_manila - The top bit

Here are the 2 file's in CFG GUI. I may have got the wrong file's but just wanted a confirmation. I couldn't find any other file's that could've
been the stock wallpaper.

Did you disable / enable TouchFLO in Today Settings?
The manila files in your ROM are not CFC compressed, try decompressing the files after creating them, so that you will have "AP" instead of "APC" to the right of each file.

Yeh mate I did disable and then enable TouchFLO.

I tried decompressing but all I can still see is the Stock Wallpaper :confused:

0.2 corrected my problem, thanks man.

I assume from the additional buttons that have appeared that some additional features are forthcoming? I await with keen interest.

One thing I did note; the resulting image is much darker than the source... intentional?

The image is slightly darker, it's the way it's being displayed by Manila.
I'm working on additional features, but I'm still learning c#... :)

I've tried everything now but just can't get these wallpapers to work :(

I think I may have got the top part of the manila wallpaper file wrong
but just can't figure out which one it could be.

    This does only work with newer ROMs with a newer TouchFLO 3D version (v2 or v3), it doesn't work if you're using a stock ROM.

    Boooooooooooo!
