WPH Tweaks was originally developed by @Jaxbot for Windows Phone 7.

WPH Tweaks allows you to change various settings in your phone's registry that you would usually change with a registry editor. Some of these settings never meant to be changed so they may not have the desired effect. We take no responsibility of the possible damage caused to your device.

WPH Tweaks for Windows Phone 8 is currently very limited, but the main features are adding Google to search providers, and adding a 'Never'-timeout option in lock screen settings. There are currently some other tweaks that do not work well so do not expect everything to work.

The project is open source and located in GitHub. The experimental code can be found here and the stable code can be found here.

Special thanks to @GoodDayToDie ! This project uses his native access libraries and full capability unlock.

If you really want to try out this still experimental project you can find links below.

Well I listed them already :p As I said, this is still very experimental. I think the only unique feature is adding Google to search providers at the moment.






Yeah I missed that, I read it again and re-worded the post (guess you didn't see the edited version :p ). Anyways I'm assuming the app is device independent (if we had a interop unlock on other devices) it would technically work on other devices right?

Is there a tweak to set the search key to open a google page instead of Bing?

Can this be re-uploaded? I can't seem to be able to download it. It keeps telling me Jenkins is restarting. Maybe attach it here or Dropbox, mediafire or support ms with skydrive :D Or someone could PM me the file?

Sorry, forgot to actually restart it. Should work now. When I get some stable builds I will upload the releases here at XDA, but until then I'll keep them in the CI.

Maybe you could implement a method to change the date format?

The registry key is
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International
"sShortDate"="dd-MMM-yy"

dd-MMM-yy = 17-Oct-13

Is it possible to edit that key?

I think it is possible, but that is what "Settings>language+region>Regional setting" changes

yeah but what I want to change is the short date. dd-MMM-yy was available in WP7 but removed in WP8. Using a registry editor, I'm unable to edit that key. It claims it is successful but when I use GoodDayToDie's native access webserver, I find that it isn't changed.

You can add this:

Increase or decrease duration of vibration of touch buttons:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Touch\Buttons]
"Duration"="{value in miliseconds in dword}"

Increase or decrease intensity of touch buttons:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Touch\Buttons]
"Intensity"="{value of intended intensity in dword}"

Enable or Disable haptic feedback
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Touch\Buttons]
"Vibrate"="{1 to enable, 0 to disable}"

Fantastic tool ;)

Thank you :D

Can we have in next release ability to change PhoneManufacturer? Thanks

Changing PhoneManufacturer is unstable. In WP7, if you change it 3-4 times it breaks the app DRM, you cannot run any apps anymore without a hard reset. This has not been tested yet in WP8 but we assume it is the same

    I'm working on a registry editor, still work in progress but here's a test build.

    Limitations: Only HKLM access, can only access browseable registry values. Only allows browsing and editing, no deleting or creating new keys.

    VERY EARLY IMPLEMENTATION! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
