Hi all, :cool:

Special thanks to Faria for helping keep this up to date and correctly formatted.

Since the forum is becoming more and more active with new (Rhodium) users joining us on a daily basis, I thought it would benefit all if I started a thread to collect all the current and future tweaks and enhancements for our Rhodiums.

I'll update the Wiki weekly with any that are posted in this thread.

Review videos and Info Here (Thanks to Quarintus)


Thanks to all contributors

Please keep the thread clean and pure for this purpose, I don't want to be digging through comments to find the enhancements.

Word of warning the HDTweak app does work for a lot of settings on the Rhodium, however there are reports that some functions can cause your device to not boot or loose sounds............. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will not provide a link to it here, as it won't be long before we have our own Rhodium Tweak app.


7MP Panorama Tweak
See here

Manilla StartMenu (Provided by LRC)

Code:
HKLM\Software\HTC\EnlargeMenu
EnableManilaStartMenu = 1
(orginal TF3D startmenu) / 0(old WM startmenu)

is not needed.....
HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila
Manila://programs.page.hidden = 0
is not needed.....
*********************************************************
GPS
(Tested & provided by DGH)
A. With Advanced config nel menu GPS
disable A-GPS
disable GPS logging
logfile name must be empty
old logfile name must be empty
maximum size of logfile must be 0
delete the files :
\windows\GPSLogFile.txt and \windows\GPSLogFileBack.txt

With those changes car usage will be quite perfect

B. Then edit registry
Under: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\
Drivers\GpsOneDevice\PollInterval -> 100 (default is 1000)
Drivers\InputBufferSize -> 512 (default is 4096)
Drivers\OutputBufferSize -> 512 (default is 4096)
Drivers\SleepOnNoData -> 100 (default is 1000)
Multiplexer\MaxBufferSize -> 512 (by default not present, you have to create it)
With those tweaks pedestrian usage will be much better but not perfect.

More specific Info on GPS specific settings for various NAV Software can be found here
*********************************************************

Remove Locked Start Menu / Programs tab Items

Free up the start menu / Programs Tab icons that are there by default and not removable you need to change (Thanks Mallman)

HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/1/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/2/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/3/IsReadOnly

A2DP Tweak Provided by R_phAn (Please note this will not work with all devices)
As we know from the past, each device has it's own preferences and capabilities (So you'll have to play around)
Managed to improve soundquality by adding DWORD 'LineSpeed' to HKLM\Software\WIDCOMM\Plugin\AV\ with a value of 320.

Remove BT Notification on Connect/Disconnect of headset / car kit thanks to Wensing
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel]
@=""
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\{607CDEA2-E44A-4528-A2C3-A7DC6B6D824D}]
"AvailableOptions"=dword:00000009
"Default"="Bluetooth warning"
"Options"=dword:00000000
Now go to Settings - Sounds & Notifications and change the options of the "Bluetooth warning" notification.

*********************************************************

Bluetooth: Receive files without entering passkey(Thanks Jzhyok)

By default Bluetooth settings, when a device which is not on your paired devices list is going to send you a file by BT OBEX Push, the BT manager requires a passkey that is annoying and useless. Yet, you can't disable this in the normal control panel.

So, here is the solution:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WIDCOMM\BTConfig\Servi ces\0002]
"Encryption"=dword:00000000
"Authorization"=dword:00000000
"Encryption"
0: No passkey is needed.
1(def): Requires passkey if the file is sending by devices NOT in the paired list.

"Authorization":
0: Receive all files automatically without asking.
1(def): Ask for each file if you wanna receive(you have to choose whether to receive or not).

Download the Reg Frag Here
*********************************************************

Wifi allways on thanks Jzhyok
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\BCMSDDHD1\Parms]
"HTCKeepWifiOnWhenUnattended"=dword:00000001
*********************************************************
To enable 2 way recording just change:


Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\WaveDev]"VocRecPath"=dword:00000002
and you'll be able to record with any software.

If you want to use WM6 native recording (WAW only, on \my documents\notes, manual activation: during a call hit "record" on call menu) create:


Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\AudioRecording]"Enabled"=dword:00000001
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Voice]"EnableCallRecordMenuItem"=dword:00000001"AllowInCallRecording"=dword:00000001
Don't forget to turn off (and on again :p) the device after you modify/create the keys.

Thanks to LinoX


Opera in Task Manager (Thanks to Quarintus)
Code:
[LIST]
[*]Go to: HKCU\Software\HTC\TaskManager\ExclusiveList\System
[*]There delete Opera9.exe (now it will show in the task manager)
[/LIST]
To close opera by pressing the X-button instead of minimizing it follow these steps:(Thanks to Quarintus)
Code:
[LIST]
[*]Go to: HKCU\Software\HTC\TaskManager\TerminateProcess
[*]There, create a DWORD with the name Opera9.exe value "1"
[/LIST]

Any way to edit the stereo bluetooth settings? I used to use Advanced Config for that, but it doesn't seem to work for the Touch Pro 2. Probably because of the new bluetooth stack.

Sound will come through my Sony DS980 headphones, but the quality isn't really good. How to raise the bitpool?

[edit]
Managed to improve soundquality by adding DWORD 'LineSpeed' to HKLM\Software\WIDCOMM\Plugin\AV\ with a value of 320. My audio experience is now much better.

"HD Tweak 0.5.4_English.cab" (use search function to find it) is for the Toch HD but works well on TP2 to tweak dozens of more or less 'hidden' settings.

Just as a warning, I'm not sure what I did but after messing around with some settings, everytime I made or received a call and it connected, I could not hear the other party and vice versa. Fixed this by setting all the phone volume settings in HDtweak back to default and uninstalling HD tweak - I later reinstalled it but didn't touch the volume settings and it works fine now.

Don't know what I messed with but becareful as something caused my call functions to stop working properly.

Change Program Launcher Read Only Shortcuts

to free up the start menu icons that are there by default and not removable you need to change

HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/0/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/1/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/2/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/3/IsReadOnly

Change this value from 1 to a 0 and you can then edit their shortcuts.

Cab attached for you guys that dont like tinkering :)

Did the same myself, I turned the Volume up from 100db to High - stopped it from working.

In relation to this, does anyone know how to decrease the time limit for when the new sms icon dissapears?

IE: I noticed if I get a new message it shows a (1) next to the message icon. I flip to it, read it quick and flip out. the (1) remains there unless I leave the message screen on for a few seconds before moving on, problem is I'm used to reading messages alot quicker than that.

or at least I believe that's what causing it.

Does anyone know which is the latest version of Advanced Config and where can I find it.


Searching the forum, gave me some results, but I don't know if the versions I found are compatible with Rhodium or not...


Any help would be much appreciated.



Thanks

    How do you install Enabling Screen Rotation via Gyrator?

    Jason,

    Go to settings/g-sensor and make sure Auto Screen Rotation is "on"
    Do the calibration on a flat surface.
    Then go to the first page of this thread and search for "G-Sensor program list in cab file" (we're on page 57 right now) to download the cab file for the G-sensor list of programs to rotate in a reg file.
    Copy this file to your device.
    With File manager, Resco file manager or Total commander (whichever one you have) click on the G-sensor list.reg file and it will import the info into the registry. I can't remember if you have to to a reset but I don't think so.
    Now, open almost any program and it will automatically rotate!
    I hope this helps.
