Intro:
This Manila (TouchFlo3D/Sense) modification is made to complement maranell0's excellent HDWall.
It does the following:
- fixes the WM6.5 skinned taskbar wallpaper misalignment (seen as small black line below the taskbar)
- fixes other general misalignments depending on Manila version
- allows you to select a different High Quality Home Tab wallpaper
- [Manila 2.0 & 2.1 only] allows you to set a wallpaper on the Manila Start Menu (this is not the WM6.5 Start Menu!)

UPDATE 23/05/2010:
New version with landscape support. Universal version for any Manila 2.5.xxxx version.
Use it with the new HDWall v0.29b.

UPDATE 22/02/2010:
New version for Manila 2.5.2011 and 2012.

UPDATE 28/11/2009:
I remade the patch for Manila 2.5. Now it replaces less manila files so it's more compatible with other Manila mods (such as the 16/20 quick links or Max Manila Ultimate).

UPDATE 24/11/2009:
Support for Manila 2.5 (HTC Sense).
The patch fixes the line below the taskbar (visible when using WM6.5 skinned taskbar) and the bug in landscape on Photo and Music tabs.
It also allows you to set a different HQ Home Tab Wallpaper.
You have to use HDWall v0.28b or newer with this patch.

Known issues:
- Max Manila: In Max Manila Setting you must set the wallpaper to default (D). Also make sure you use the Sense - All Tabs profile in HDWall.

Requirements:
This patch will only work on Manila (TouchFlo3D/Sense) versions 2.0, 2.1 and 2.5.
To check the version go to the settings tab in TouchFlo, at the bottom there should be "About" and "TouchFLO 3D" followed by the version number.
Update: With recent Manilas the version info is no longer there. If that is the case for you try to find the Manila version info here: on the Settings Tab hit All Settings then System, Device Information, Software Information.

Will this work on Orange stock rom?

Depends on which version of TF3D you have. This patch only works on versions 2.0 and 2.1. To check the version go to the settings tab in TouchFlo, at the bottom there should be "About" and "TouchFLO 3D" followed by version number.

Beautiful, thanks very much for this.

Working in Onkolog 25/6 build (WM 6.5).

However, there is a slight but noticeable more lag for a tab to come up after it is tapped. ie. after I press the 'Programs' tab it will take half a second more for the programs to be displayed on screen.

It is small enough for me to live with for now, but time will tell how I will think of it when I use the phone on the go.

Anyways, thanks very much!

Did you make you wallpaper with or without UltraHQ compression?
While I was testing I noticed some issues with UltraHQ - tab switch lag and choppy animations for tab slider and hide/show clock.
Without UltraHQ everything runs smoothly.

Duuuude!!! Do you know that you rock? :D

Now for the question. As I understand, the file names are different for the home tab, and for the "all tabs".. Can I create a home page image with "your" profile, than make a "rest of the tabs" image with the default profile, and run the "create cab" process that adds all of these images into 1 cab.. Will this make an installer that changes both the home tab and the rest of the tabs? I mean.. I hope so :D

Update: YES, it DOES work! Now, there's still the weird difference in padding (or at least I think so.. The bottom of the image seems ok, but I think the top it seems to move a couple of pixels higher.. but nonetheless, now it looks EPIC! Thanks a lot for the awesome update! :)

I guess I noticed a small... bug.. ?
The home tab doesn't have a "hashed" area on the top.. The operator name now is printed directly on the background..
And of course the non-transparent slider, but I suppose that's not an issue with your cab :p

I didn't notice this before because I was using completely different home and non-home wallpapers. I'll try to fix it so they align correctly.

Do you have Manila 2.0 or 2.1? I might have done something wrong with v2.0.

And of course the non-transparent slider, but I suppose that's not an issue with your cab :p

You can find a transparent slider and bottom curtain here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=493011

Very weird. I flashed a Manila 2.0 ROM on my Blackstone and everything seems to be OK: Home,Non-Home

You must have a slightly different version of Manila. I'm not going to be able to fix that. Sorry :(

Hehe, weird indeed..
Oh well, it's not like it's a big problem.. Besides, I'll flash a custom rom at some point anyway :p
Thanks a LOT for your cab again ^^

Good Job!!! Now i can spend even longer looking at the millions of HD pics available for different tabs:D

The only thing i want to know is how to change default grey colour on tabs text (ie sms messages, calender items on home tab etc etc. Its often difficult to read when using a lighter colour picture, making it useless.

Any clues to simplify this task?

New version up - see first post.
I added support for Manila Start Menu Wallpapers:


Also, maranell0 said he would include these profiles and cabs in the next version of HDWall, so watch out for that. It will make creating these wallpapers easier :)

co0kiemonster.... GREAT WORK. I have 1 small question though. I realise this app was probably designed with the devices which have tf installed as stock, but I'm using a SE XPERIA with Smaberg's TouchX 10.1 Rom. I've installed your cab (i've tried manila 2.0 & 2.1 cabs) and there is one small side effect. I can no longer tap on the clock and go into time settings. I can tap on the alarm and set those so it's not a big problem, more a "would like to have". I thought I'd bring it to your attention for any further releases.

Besides that... NICE, I can have matching wallpaper through all tabs including the start menu... SWEET!! Ta very much!
