Hey.

Here is the way to change the homekeys IN TFLO 3D.

In a registry editor, go to:

HKLM/Software/HTC/manila/
Here is:

HomeLSKPath, which is the left softkey (Standard = Phonepad)
And
HomeRSKPath, which is the right softkey.
If you change these with the location of the programs you want to link to, and simultaneous change the names:

HomeLSKText = Left softkey text
And
HomeRSKText = Right softkey text.

Changing the boot picture/sound:
HKLM/Software/HTC/HTCAnimation (startup animation)
and
HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Splash Screen (The green WM 6.1 logo)

Hi
Have tried it but can't get the labels or items opened to change. Can you post an example of the string you're using?

Nice tip - thanks.
Changed Phone to Camera as I find it a pain in the ass to get the camera up and running quickly! Who needs Phone - as pressing the Call key does the same thing.

Nice thought! I was thinking the same as well, or the other alternative is to activate/deactivate Bluetooth but does anybody know the string to Enable Bluetooth?
Thanks in advance!

Just wondering - why use registry when you have that option in Preferences?

So i tried it i just changed the path to another image (jpg) in the internal storage. I got a blank screen.
So does the image you choose have to been in the device?
Does it have to be .png?

If so whats the file path to the device.
Thanks very much or maybe im doing it all wrong you tell me please.
Cheers! thanks!

\Windows\CommManager.exe brings up the Comm Manager, IMO even more useful.


I would love to see configuration of long press of other keys than End Call, though.

Hi.

I have changed the text on the right button. I want the right button to "link" to my contacts, but I cannot find out what the contacts are called on the Diamond?

I did nothing there. I`ve searched everywhere

Ignore this. I take it Sry means "sorry" not wrongly typed "Try". If you know what I`m going on about.

Yo dude. I just checked it out.

Try: Start>settings>buttons

However, there is only 1 button that you can set (or maybe that what i know),
from the drop down menu, choose "camera". Viola!

Thru trial and error, i found out that the Button 1 is actually the call button.
Which means: press it once to go into phone mode, long press (hold) to activate camera. Hope that helps.

:)

Yeah sussed that out thanks. I was really looking to be able to just have a quick button press that turns bluetooth on and off just like my Nokia N80 does. I found it very handy

Yes, you are quite right. I guess I was confused :D
