I'just changed Internet Explorer shorcut to Opera

touchopera.bmp


You just need to do some changes in register

HKLM\Software\HTC\Biotouch\ApLouncher\App1_2

touchregister.bmp


Change the "Name" value to "Opera"
Change the "path" value to your opera shorcut path "\Windows\Menu Démarrer\Programmes\Opera Browser.url"

If you want to change the icon too, there is two way:

1. Change the "IconPath" value with the path to a new icon

or
2. Replace the .png file AL_02.png in \Windows with a new one (don't forget to save the original one.

I used the first choice : "\Windows\AL_opera.png"
You can download this icon here :

AL_opera.png

www.cyrilp.com/AL_opera.png

Then you should change the IconPressPath too with a specific icon.

You can download this icon here :

Hope this will help you :)

Cyril

Edit: i just made some new icons that you can download here:

www.cyrilp.com/iconetouch.rar

Edit:

Here is the PSD file with all the layers so that you can do your owns:

www.cyrilp.com/touch.psd

Take care, each row of icon is more or less bright: light gray on first row , dark gray on last one.
They are 3 different groups of layers to use depending where you wanna put the icon.

The Highlighted version is the same for all.

yours,
Cyril

Excellent hack...good work. I download the beta mini 4 version yesterday but it's poor on the Touch, the damn keyboard is permanently on the screen!!! I love Opera but it has one massive flaw....you can only use it through WAP (per second charge) and not through any data bundle you may have on your phone line. I had the same shorcoming when running on my BlackBerry.

Hmm... Do you think if we add another 'ApLouncher' key to the reg, a second App launcher page can be created? Any brave soul out there want to give it a go and report back? hahaha Would be nice if you can just add pages and put all apps there :p

For me it's ok for Resco.

In fact it launches Image and Video ... then Resco :)

Don't know why ...

New shortcuts

Anyone figure out how to add more boxes so we can have say 8 or more shorcuts on that face of the cube?

Do not forget to soft reset once after you change the registry.
