Beautiful Mods! Is there anyway i could get a cab file of the clock background in the third portrait and first landscape screenshot? The background with the floral/paisley type print. It is very beautiful and I would love to use it in conjuction to your mods..Thanks in advance.

Is this still alive?

Are you developing this anymore?
Or any other software can do this?
CHT 2.0.0 for WM6.1 will not do this as it posted in the CHT thread. So we need you volDeus.

Regards,
Cina.

21680 shell

Thanks for the nice tool. This worked for me on Energy 21680. I am not sure about nk.exe patching. Some files did not work for me and had hung up at splash screen but then the one I got from the wm6.5.x repository worked. I hope I did TB right. I would appreciate if somebody tells how to verify the timebomb done right. Here are the files.

is it worth something?

Excellent post!! I'm very grateful, to people like yourself, who share their work and take the time to explain it, to lesser minds like myself!!
With that said, I do my small contribution and upload the "Shell32.exe" and "aygshell.dll" files that I extracted from my device's ROM, using the ROMextractor.
The device is a Samsung GT-I8000L with the original ROM as I purchased it form my local service provider (Personal, Argentina). I included a text file with the device and windows versions inside the RAR file.

if you already edited shell32.exe and aygshell.dll, you can got transparent taskbar and softkey bar for CHT 2.0.0.

Yes, but you're using WM6.5 according to your (nice !) screenshots and Sense 2012 according to your signature.

It's not quite as simple using WM6.5.x and Sense 2018+.

The bars are often distorted when rotating, or switch from WM to Sense, etc.

BTW, could you please explain HOW you did that for CHT 2.0 ?

I used WM 6.1.
1. I edit my shell.exe and aygshell.dll http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=320295&d=1272915476 (try with your own risk)
2. Install CHT 2 and soft reset
3. Install volDeus BG Tweak v0.6b4.CAB and soft reset
4. Run volDeus BG Tweak v0.6b4.CAB, select the wallpaper portrait then landscape. Soft reset
5. Start, picture & video, set as today background, set transparency = 0
6. Find stwater_640x480.png (for VGA) at windows folder and copy this wallpaper to other folder
7. CHT 2, set wallpaper, all tabs select portrait wallpaper, select landscape wallpaper stwater_640x480.png

Have fun :)

After softreset my phone shows just black screen. What should I do?

EDIT: I managed to restore the factory settings. No need for help anymore.

Hi, Andy, and thanks for your help !

No risk if you're working out of a XIP archive from the latest MS builds topic. ;)

Copying the files from the \Windows folder to modify them never works (I'm just warning people about that :p) : it just crashes Windows Mobile, forcing to a hard reset.

2. Install CHT 2 and soft reset
3. Install volDeus BG Tweak v0.6b4.CAB and soft reset
4. Run volDeus BG Tweak v0.6b4.CAB, select the wallpaper portrait then landscape. Soft reset
5. Start, picture & video, set as today background, set transparency = 0
Wait, wait, wait !!! "Set transparency = 0" ? :eek:

Ok... Just got it... I never ever saw that before ! I actually never, ever used "Picture & video" before ! :D

Is that the ultimate trick, then ?

But... It sets up a portrait wallpaper, not landscape (it sets up both, actually)... Will it be vertically cut in the middle and horizontally enlarged (fattened :D) as shown on your screenshots ?

Do you think I can "cheat" and put the part I want to display in landscape mode in a reduced (horizontally shrunk) 480 pixels wide picture, with a dummy 320 pixels high part at the bottom, and it will build the stwater_800x480.png picture exactly how I want it to look like ?

That would be really great !

And can I then cheat again, and replace the stwater_480x800.png picture by a more suitable one, without compromizing the bars' appearances in landscape ? :D

6. Find stwater_640x480.png (for VGA) at windows folder and copy this wallpaper to other folder
7. CHT 2, set wallpaper, all tabs select portrait wallpaper, select landscape wallpaper stwater_640x480.png
Of course ! Got it !

I will ! Thanks for the hints ! I'll try all that ! :D

    Here you go. I've placed it as a link because it might just be on the edge of being NSFW (the weather/clock hide most of it, but just to be on the safe side). I'm currently on 23566 and as you can see the top and bottom bar on the lockscreen are completely black, with the right square in the corner. just let me know if you'd like to have another picture with a darker background or something to compare. It doesn't really bother me at all, I don't see my lockscreen for more than a second or two at a time, lol.

    +1 - also the only "bugs" experienced by me. volDeus this work is amazing, patiently waiting for the Album browser/thumbnail view to see the wallpapers I want to select ;)

    I think this is all related to the same thing that mwalt2 has been talking about. He already posted a code snippet for patching the offending _manila file but I have not had time to play with it myself since I've been focusing on some other stability issues and bugs to get v0.6 out of beta. I will tackle it as soon as I get back from my trip and get v0.6 final posted... Unless someone beats me to it ;)

    I too have the white box on all 6.5.x versions with the tweak applied, but only in "fullscreen" mode. Meaning the lockscreen in CHT and the animated rotated coverflow style music and photo tabs of Sense.
    Hopefully a fix can be found for that, as it's the most notable bug for me at this point.
    However it's not a big deal, would still be nice to get that patched up.
    I have been doing a little digging myself to see if I can track down the exact cause.
    Thanks for all efforts so far on a great solution for our devices wallpaper. ;)

    I'm sure it is caused by something in the 3a8e04af_manila file, but I haven't pinpointed it just yet.


    mwalt2 mentioned 285d005a_manila when he posted the code snippet ... Maybe you could take a look at his post (here) and check if it is the same issue. The _manila files in my MOD are a bit of a mess and include alot of variables to accomodate both VGA and WVGA devices with one file. If you have any questions about how they are working, or would like a copy of the source files so the variable names are easier to understand, shoot me a PM and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
