This thred is to post the best mods and tweaks for new Sense 2.5.
I will post the mods that i use all the time, and i hope you guys/girls will follow and post your own mods.

PS. The visual tweaks are made for manila without landscape mosde so some wont work while some will in landscape.
The tweaks, memory tweaks and other apps cab's will work on every manila.
the BG all tabs and quicklinks are bounded to the right manila version.
But most of the cabs are FULLY uninstalleble, so just try and see....

I like the Wifi Toggle. Thanks!

Can you explain what the turbo optimizer does? How will I experience the effects of the optimizer on my HD2? With the *huge* intern program memory do I really need this?

Thanks Smaberg. Good job.
Did you find the way to turn off screen lock after you switch your screen off?
Its so anoing for me when i turning screen on and have to slide button left or right which is not respond at all time. Sometimes i have to wait 2 sec. to unlock.

Thank you!!!

Finally, a fix that gives me the quick menu on the home page. I've tried a few other suggestions, but this is the only one that actually works for me.

Cheers big ears!

Has anyone seen a tweak that would remove the quick launch icons altogether from the Home screen (and increase the number of appointments instead)?

Has anyone a tweak for the Programm Icons transparent?

and an Tweak for People - 3 Icons in a Row?

in original style the background on the.startmenu is more dim then the background right!

this patch makes the dim go away! so the background is shown correctly!

so does that work?

for me this made it almost black, not sure how that is working but if it is that is not what i want
