Host V1.5

Host-V1.5-ScreenShots.png


Like i said before, i'm only learning wm programming.. so nothing big..

This is a standalone app. You can customize it to make it look like WP7.

Should work on all screen types (QVGA/WQVGA/VGA/WVGA), other than the square/HVGA ones.

REQUIRES:
1. WM6.5
2. .net compact framework 3.5 (usually built into WM6.5 cutom ROMs. if not, u'll need to install it)

still beta...i'll assume no responsibilities...

things to do..
just install the cab (on device) and run from the start menu.


REMEMBER to uninstall before a new install

i'd recommend all today items to be disabled first (not needed, but saves battery and memory)

New video of Host v1.5:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eO2_AaPe74

Tested on HTC HD2 (ROM: Duttys), HTC Touch 3G (ROM: Megade) and Samsung OMNIA II (i8000) (ROM: Stock 6.5).. dont know how it'll go on other devices..should work on all devices with WM6.5

Condition for use: Leave a comment :)

Remember when downloading: HostV1.5.CAB is the new version. HostV1 and WP7V2.0.CAB are the old ones. if you find V1.5 too heavy for u'r device, u may opt for WP7V2.0.
(keeping all of them for download)

ChangeLog for Host V1.5:
1. No confirmation for lockscreen (10 Dec, 2010)
2. Screen stretched to fit screen if all buttons at the bottom bar are hidden (10 Dec, 2010)
3. SharePoint and OneNote added in officepage (10 Dec, 2010)
4. Shortcuts background has been removed (10 Dec, 2010)


Found it useful? Want to support this project? You can

Hi, ashiqiqbal.

I´ve installed your app and I have to say that it´s really promising. On my Elfin the animation is very, very fast. Obviously, it´s on a first stage, so I wish you go ahead with your work and update it in a near future.

The best point here is that it is a standalone app, much better than a theme, IMO.

Best regards.

i am having this error after installing. host 1.5

ashiqiqbal,
Coolest interface I've tried since Cookie's Home Tab. I was avoiding WP7 like the plague but since installing, I've grown to love it or at least, your look alike. This program was designed well and runs very smoothly on my Sprint TP2... it's rejuvinated an experience with my device. If I could wish for anything in future releases / updates it would be more configurability. Background changes, maybe a folder housing one's own images for tiles, icons, etc. I also thought the process to select programs for the tiles / shortcuts was somewhat cumbersome and could use some updating. All that aside though, slam dunk!... I love it. Hope I didn't ramble too much in my attempt to simply say... THANK YOU!!

WOW, that thing works superbly smooth! Going to make a fresh flash for this set-up for sure :). During quick testing I saw the appointments item (or just wide tiles) don't have the darkblue hued tile background, would you be willing to provide that image?

Thanks for this awesome work :)

EDIT:
I don't know if this is still under development, but it would be great if the program would make itself the 'Home' tab in Sense and to give you the possibility to swap the "start menu" icon for a tab slider one, like CHT2.0 :)
Also, the program keeps saying 'Program can not be launched' when a program is already running. For an app like Activesync this isn't very convenient, because that damn thing always opens itself in the background ;).
Got 2 more ideas, a tasks tile and a taskmanager tile-like page.

OK, screw Sense/Manila Tabs, but instead I'd like to know where I can find some mod to make the Sense/Manila softkeys (and lists and all) work without Sense enabled?

I found that SDK once made by eboelzner and the result by francarl, but I can't seem to get it to work. Does anybody know where to find this feature (for a Touch Pro2, WVGA)?

It isn't really just a theme. It's a program you run instead of enabling your Sense home item. I use a TP2 too and I'm running it at this very moment. I'm still trying to figure out how to re-enable the Sense buttons/menus, but I'm not regretting ditching the tabs (for a while at least).

I'd like to know where the BG's for the wide tiles are stored, because I can't seem to find them? Or do they have to be named like the 'pictures' shown in the Program Files folder? (in other words, you need to overwrite them with new ones?)

    I installed a really bare 6.5 rom, it only had media player, and when i tap pictures, it says : program could not be launched.

    assign it to anything of u'r choice..
