Hey all,

was tired of the CAB madness, so I made a little tool (KaiserTweak) that can enable and disable a number of registry tweaks.

Download at http://www.jongma.org/KaiserTweak/

Current version is v0.41, dated December 9, 2007. The latest tweaks XML is also from December 9.

If you need assistance with installing it, look at this post.

I'll see about that tweak, it wasn't there yet last time I looked :) More is always welcome.

I will get a screenshot of UI later, but it really isn't that exciting. It's a real program yes, but it all comes down to some labels and comboboxes that turn things off and on.

Furthermore, I don't know what's going on, but my site is not down :S Several people have downloaded it without trouble and it's on a dedicated 100mibt line.

Chainfire,

What would be a good value for:
# Performance - File System Cache
# Performance - File System Filter Cache
# Performance - Font Cache
# Performance - TCP Window Size
?

And please add this:
HKCU >Control Panel>Backlight>QKeyLedTimeout
Tap on this entry and in the "value data" box enter the time you want the keyboard to stay on in seconds. Mine is set to 360 or 6 minutes. (default is 10 seconds)

\HKCU\ControlPanel\BackLight\LockLevel\
Change LockLevel to what ever value you want the backlight set to when your device is locked.

:)

I took the values from Paul's registry tweak pack over at MoDaCo, he seems like a guru, so I just used his values. It'll be configurable later on. I'll also look at your other tweaks :)

Yeah it's a registry tweak... these are the relevant keys:

HKLM\Comm\CommMgr\Planner\Settings\SuspendResume
HKLM\Comm\CommMgr\Planner\Settings\CacheTime

Thanks for sharing, I take you just need to close the app for the settings to register or is a reset needed?

Touchflo has really been getting on my nerves using npop with unwanted scrolling when selecting, but setting it to off does not seem to do anything so far, I'll see if a reset helps. There seems to be a delay when selecting too, maybe that's Touchflo kicking in too, seems like setting it to high wouldn't help.

Yeah some tweaks require soft-reset, others dont. I'll be damned if I keep track of which ones need what. Changes are applied when you select the value, not on app shutdown though. I'd always say it's wise to soft-reset the device after any changes, just to be sure.

Thank you very much.

I've set

CacheTime=180 (3 minutes)
SuspendResume=GPRS_bye_if_device_off

and it works fine... :)

Is there a tweak to have the keyboard turn on each time a key is pressed ? I find that sometimes it doesn't turn on when I'd need it too.
Yah, usually that's the auto sensor causing problems. Go to settings>buttons then the "backlight" tab and uncheck the keyboard backlight sensor.

Then add the reg tweak from a few posts back to increase the keyboard timeout for greater that the 10 sec default if you like. BTW good to see you here outside your forum, hope you like your Kaiser as much as I do mine!

Chainfire, do you have a donate button? This tweak app may grow into a must have for Kaiser owners if you get all the tweaks in one place. That's a great help, thanks for your effort and sharing!

Can you explain how this is supposed to work? My settings were;

CacheTime=600 (I changed to 300)
SuspendResume=~GPRS! (changed to GPRS_bye_if_device_off)

I figured that the GPRS connection would close in 5 minutes of no use, or close if I turned the phone off (standby). But it seems to remian connected once it's established.

I'd appreciate any pointers!

Update KaiserTweak to v0.2 to add a few more tweaks. Webpage should also work good now. Webpage is a 'quickie' though, dont look at it, but read it ;) Added short description of the various tweaks to the webpage and also added a screenshot from the VS2K5 debugger (it almost resembles the Kaiser ;)).
