You have to go into your Windows folder with Total Commander or Resco Explorer then look for the LargeTitleBar.dll file and rename it to LargeTitleBar.dll.bak, then you can copy the new file into the Windows folder, soft reset and Bob's your uncle. You can then go and either delete the "largetitlebar.dll.bak" or you can copy it somewhere else for safe keeping as a backup. I would recommend keeping it safe, though :-D

This doesn't seem to work for me. As soon as I rename the old file to the .BAK extension another file without the .BAK extension appears. So I am unable to copy the new file to the window folder. Does anyone have a suggestion?

edit: never mind, I figured it out. It turns out that the sequence is important. You can't leave the windows folder when you have renamed the original DLL. So first copy the new DLL on your device in a folder other than Windows (e.g. My documents). Second, copy that file onto the clipboard. Third, navigate to the windows folder and rename the old file. Finally, paste the new file and remove the old file. Then reboot.

@sixian above me: the file is in your Windows folder. You might have to select 'display all files' in the menu. Some seem to able to copy it directly. For me, however, that is not the case. Good luck, anyway!

I don't have have the LargeTitleBar.dll file in the Windows folder. I selected the option for system and hidden files.

How to configure for Photos, Music and Documents.

I am really impressed with this product. Thanks so much. But I am finding hard to configure rotation on the Photos, music and documents tabs which by default already include rotation both vertically in Portrait and horizontally in Landscape. I want to make the screen for these applications rotate in the opposite directions too while retaining the same vertical and horizontal scrolling of the stock Manila sense. Can anybody help me please?

So, I am running NRGZ custom ROM running 2.5.2012 Manilla with 5.2.23548 OS and WM6.5 for my Imagio. It also has Cookies 1.7 home tab. I love this program except for one thing, and I hope some one can help. When I lock the phone using cookies, if I rotate, it unlocks. I tried to run the exception, but it only shows Manilla when I am in the lock screen. I really want to run Cookies lock screen, not the stock lock. Any ideas?

Hi I am using changescren with my HTC touch HD with WM 6.5.x on it (build 24001).

Changescreen works superbly except one thing. When the phone rings on incoming call, no matter what I try the screen rotates on all directions...

Since it is impossible to pick up the phone and not move it into any direction, the screen rotates constantly so I cannot even see who is calling...

I have tried everything in exceptions (cprog, gwes etc.) and still cannot find why changescreen rotates the dialer ONLY when the phone is ringing!!!

Could anyone help me?

I Think I solved the problem on my own with some googling...

It seems that the autorotation feature of manila was enabled, overriding change screen settings...


I've set HKCU\Software\HTC\HTCSENSOR\GSensor autorotation key to 0 and now it works beautifully... Change Screen has control!

I cooked a rom that mounts htcalbum version 3.02. When I open the album and watch the pictures if you turn the phone pictures do not rotate. With this program I can rotate my photos.

Dimitris.

I am the same problem, I think it is related to manilla rotating (not phone/cprog) while the phone ringning and loading the phone UI, so to many thing for a TP2.

Maybe you could disable the app when a call is received?

Rotation while Idle ?

Hi,

Your app is great!

Just 2 small issues:

Should the Rotation still occur while Idle/Suspend (if I put it to sleep while Portrait, then flip Landscape, then wake it back to Portrait I see it rotating from Landscape to Portrait)? This slow down thing, because you have to wait a 1-2sec to finish rotating before you can use it.

The detection for sleep when "put in the pocket" does not work most of the time, not sure why (I try to figure it out), it should be a full proof logic : if upside down and dark... I would be nice, to add wake when upside up and light only after put to sleep by th above.

Thanks,

Where are the settings stored? I'd like to cook-in this program with my settings, but I have no idea where to find them (I've searched registry and program folder, but with no result)..

I've found it by myself: \windows\changescreen.config
;)
