[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\OEM\SystemTray\DataConnectionStrings]

with what app do I navigate to this location?

I can't install customPFD...I dont know why..

Any help plz?

---------- Post added at 09:35 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:27 AM ----------

To enable on screen buttons:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\NavigationBar\SoftwareModeEnabled
dword:1
CustomPFD also has this setting in the Tweaks section.

To disable capacitive buttons go to HKLM\SYSTEM\Input\WEH\Buttons\DisablePhoneButtons
Set to 1 "Back", "Search" and "Start"

Report back if disabling capacitive buttons work, I don't have one to test and I recently found these keys.


I am trying to do this but dont know how?

I have the RootTool2 installed and I am going to both Windows Reg and Lumia Reg hack but what do i mention in the 'Key' and 'Value' and 'Path' ??

[1]
Go to:
HKLM-> SYSTEM -> TOUCH -> Settings

Add those dword keys:
WakeUpGestureSupported = 1
EnableWakeUpGesture = 1
WakeUpGesture = 1

[2]
Go to:
HKLM-> SYSTEM -> TOUCH -> Settings -> FF

Add those dword keys:
WakeUpGestureSupported = 1
EnableWakeUpGesture = 1
WakeUpGesture = 1

[3]
Go to:
HKLM-> SOFTWARE -> OEM -> Nokia -> Touch -> WakeupGesture

Add those dword keys:
Enabled = 1
ProxyDetected = 1

I know some of the keys are not needed but I added them just in case and I got dt2w working on my 630 :D

I also have Lumia 630 DS, and this trick also work for me...
1. Just create block 1 & 2 registry keys.
2. After that, go to Settings->Personalization->Lock screen, there you'll see feature named "Double-tap to wake up phone".
3. Enable it (after turning on it, block 3 registry will be create automatically).
4. Restart your phone.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Theme
Key = UserPreferenceWidth
1. Value - 0(Default) 
2. Value - 68(medium text)
3. Value - 75(small text, 5 toggles)

force 3G toggle (for Nokia only) :
HKLM\Software\OEM\NoKIA\Networksettings\HideForce3G -> value = 0
Default value = 1
Windows Phone 8.1 :
Settings -> Network+
Windows 10 :
Settings -> Extras -> Network+
you can see a force 3G toggle with restart required like screenshot below .
surely it not useful for windows 10 but Windows 8.1 user need it .

How to do it for wp 8.1? Help me please

It's related to screen resolution so there is no way. You can change resolution but touch won't work properly and silverlight apps will be broken.

Thanks for reply,
If I changed the resolution will it be able to get more titles at start and quick actions?

And how to do that ?

Nope, you can only set it to 480x800 instead of 480x854.
But if you change your model name to Lumia 1520's RM code, you can set dpi to lower and that gives you 5 quick actions. + 4th tile.

    Custom Alert Tones for WP8 Registry Tweak!

    Registry Tweak to enable custom alert tones for your Interop-Unlocked device!

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\EventSounds\Sounds\{Intended Alert Tone}]

    Step 3: Key should be set to "Sound".

    Step 4: Change the value of the files location to C:\Data\Users\Public\Ringtones\YourRingtoneName.mp3

    Example:
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\EventSounds\Sounds\SMS]
    "Sound"="C:\Data\Users\Public\Ringtones\AppleSucks.mp3


    That would set a ringtone named "AppleSucks" in your Ringtone folder as your SMS tone.
