This is a taskbar for Windows Mobile 6.5 to match the new Chome theme and icons! After a couple of weeks of smashing my head into a wall i believe (cross your fingers) that i have eliminated the bugs with compatibility on other phones for V3! Enjoy!

NOTE:The HTC Dialer must be enabled for this taskbar to work!
Taken from FInixNOver's thread about taskbar customization
This is not an application; it’s just aesthetics, so no extra memory will be consumed.

Whether your device is running an official ROM or a cooked ROM, it may not work until you install the sdkcerts.cab. This cab will only set your device to accept the digital signature used to sign phcanOverbmp.dll and the other modified dll’s, so the device can be able to display the icons.

Do this at your own risk! I cannot be held responsible if you brick your device. I'm just supplying information from my own and others experience.

FOR WM6.1 USERS:
This is made to match up with the 6.5 home screen, and only fully works on a 6.5 ROM. It will install on 6.1 ROMs, but you will be missing a few things skinned not allowed by 6.1. The stock white icons will be there instead and the "x" icons will be very big.

The screen shot is a bit blurry from the program i get them from, but i assure you the icons are not.

download here: This cab is uninstallable.

I was not going to include a donation button, but I was encouraged to add this by a friend. I do not require, or expect donations.
If you are still feeling compelled, as i have been in the past, then donations are a great way to show appreciation for someone else hard work.
Thank You!

OK! This one is for all those new fans of SPB Mobile Shell 3. I am still trying to find a good missed call, and voice mail icon. In the mean time they are the same icons as in my WM6.5 Chome Taskbar, in above post. Over time i will be changing small things to complete this taskbar!

WM6.5 "Titanium" Taskbar (5/28)

After a long wait i finally have my new taskbar close enough to finished that I am going to release it for you guys. :) Sorry for the delay to any of those that have been waiting, but i really had to figure out the compatibility issues with my previous taskbars before i released yet another taskbar that crashed some Diamonds and some HDs. I believe i have all the kinks ironed out.

Very good work, especially battery meter! But the radio strength icon is to dark grey and bad seems with the earth on the background. Also, this icons is slightly small. To be good if it will be a bigger ;)

Looks awesome, any timeframe for release?:D

Quite possibly today, but no promises. I seem to have tracked down the bug, and that it was more only on a certain build of 6.5. All the new ones seem to be working as it should.

I really like the CHome icon theme. Does it include the CDMA Ev and 1x icons? Thx.

Yes the Ev and 1x icons for Chome are skinned as in Tsowens taskbar, follow the link in my main posts to see what they will look like. :)

Ok guys here is my first release of my WM 6.5 Chome Taskbar. I have used the base of tsowen so if the network icons look familiar that may be why. Thanks to him, and to the guys who made this possible and answered stupid questions for me. :D

wow:eek:
i want this taskbar on my i780 with 128dpi, can i rename all files *.192* in *.128* ?! or also must i resize all images?! :(

thank you!

Colored icons

I know the gray signal strength icons are hard to see on some backgrounds, so i made some revisions and make colored icon bars. I will post screenshots soon. In the mean time i will explain. They are the same grey icons, i just colorized them, and made them bigger, so that you can tell signal strength at just a glance. 1 red bar, 2 orange bars, 3 yellow bars, 4 green, 5 bright green.


Im tired so thats all you get for now, if you want to see what it looks like download the cab and install it and im sure you will be please.

Very nice coloured signal bars, I love them :)

Would it be possible to not make the signal bars turn grey during a call?

It would be great if they remained in colour?

Good idea my friend!
