"OMG, yet another registry editor!" you'll say and of course you are right - yes, it is!

However (I hope so!) it will be a final WP tweaker, not because of the latest rumors about MS is going to drop WP platform but 'cause of the app's architecture.

It's a first XML-template based registry tweaker for WP8.1; instead of waiting for the existing tweakers modification, you may easily add your own hack (and contribute it for community of course!).

This app should work on the interop-unlocked Lumias and Samsung handsets ONLY.

The WPTweaker's user interface is pretty simple and doesn't require explanation.

The XML data file format is kinda more complicated (but nothing close to the "rocket science" of course )

So, here an example of the Tweaks.xml file:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<tweaks>

Let me explain for a little this XML data.
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
<contributors> element is a tweak contributors list, I'll be glad to add you to this list.

Element <tweak> must have some attributes and may have some...
required attributes
- category="User interface": it's a tweak category, all tweaks will be grouped by categories, and these categories become a pivot pages headers
- name="Touch buttons intensity": short tweak description
- type="enum": tweak type. There are 3 types of tweaks currently serving: toggle, input and enum
optional attributes
- description="Increase or decrease intensity of touch buttons": detailed tweak description
- reboot="true": reboot is required for this tweak?
- min="100", max="1000": minimal and maximal value limits (for numeric input, currently not implemented)

Element <entry> represents registry entry.
required attributes
- path="HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftDeviceRegInstall" : registry key path
- name="MaxUnsignedApp": registry key name
- type="dword": registry data type, can be "dword", "qword", "string", "strings" and "binary"
- default="0000000A" : default registry value. Can be omitted but definitely good to have one...
optional attributes
- comparer=">": determines how to check tweak state. Logical operation for the value comparer (with default value). By default it's "!=" (not equal), also can be ">" or "<"

Element <value> it's a registry entry value.
This element may have an optional attribute "name", to specify how this value should appear in the combo box.
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Since version 1.2.0 I've added ability to customize application's look. It can be done by adding a few element to the XML data file (Tweaks.xml). For example, adding these lines of xml code:
Code:
<theme name="Blue Waves">
    <AppHeaderBackgroundBrush>#0F1F2E</AppHeaderBackgroundBrush>
    <AppHeaderForegroundBrush>#C2D1E0</AppHeaderForegroundBrush>"
    <AppHeaderFontSize>32</AppHeaderFontSize>"
    <PageHeaderBackgroundBrush>#0F1F2E</PageHeaderBackgroundBrush>
    <PageHeaderForegroundBrush>#C2D1E0</PageHeaderForegroundBrush>
    <PageHeaderFontSize>32</PageHeaderFontSize>
    <TweakHeaderBackgroundBrush>#24476B</TweakHeaderBackgroundBrush>
    <TweakHeaderForegroundBrush>#C2EBFF</TweakHeaderForegroundBrush>
    <TweakHeaderFontSize>22</TweakHeaderFontSize>
    <TweakDescriptionForegroundBrush>#C2EBFF</TweakDescriptionForegroundBrush>
    <TweakDescriptionFontSize>14</TweakDescriptionFontSize>
    <TweakEvenBackgroundBrush>#0F1F2E</TweakEvenBackgroundBrush>
    <TweakOddBackgroundBrush>#14293D</TweakOddBackgroundBrush>
  </theme>
will change application's look like this:

You may use standard WP theme resources (see below) or custom color values in #argb format (a - transparency - can be omitted). Here is the default color theme:
Code:
  <theme name="Default">
    <AppHeaderBackgroundBrush>PhoneAccentColor</AppHeaderBackgroundBrush>
    <AppHeaderForegroundBrush>PhoneForegroundColor</AppHeaderForegroundBrush>"
    <AppHeaderFontSize>24</AppHeaderFontSize>"
    <PageHeaderBackgroundBrush>PhoneBackgroundColor</PageHeaderBackgroundBrush>
    <PageHeaderForegroundBrush>PhoneForegroundColor</PageHeaderForegroundBrush>
    <PageHeaderFontSize>36</PageHeaderFontSize>
    <TweakHeaderBackgroundBrush>PhoneChromeColor</TweakHeaderBackgroundBrush>
    <TweakHeaderForegroundBrush>PhoneForegroundColor</TweakHeaderForegroundBrush>
    <TweakHeaderFontSize>24</TweakHeaderFontSize>
    <TweakDescriptionForegroundBrush>PhoneForegroundColor</TweakDescriptionForegroundBrush>
    <TweakDescriptionFontSize>18</TweakDescriptionFontSize>
    <TweakEvenBackgroundBrush>PhoneBackgroundColor</TweakEvenBackgroundBrush>
    <TweakOddBackgroundBrush>PhoneBackgroundColor</TweakOddBackgroundBrush>
  </theme>
To apply color theme settings, do the following:
  • add theme elements to your Tweaks.xml (copy it from the github or from phone first) right under the <tweaks> tag;
  • load changed file to WPTweaker
  • exit application - it's important!
  • start it again and enjoy!

After applying new theme, you can update Tweaks.xml file via http, custom colors will remain. To reset theme, just add empty element <theme /> to your xml and load file.
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

"WPTweaker" is an open source project; download solution from the GitHub
Source code isn't elegant or well commented but at least you may use it without any license restrictions.

Application currently is under intensive development, so don't expect bugless work If you have any suggestion for the new features, or about data structure or functionality - please go ahead, I'm really open minded and any reasonable feature request will be welcome.

A few words about XML structure: there are two conceptual ways for the XML, elements vs attributes. For this project I prefer attributes: in that case tweaks looks more readable and file is smaller...

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

If you want to contribute tweaks and hacks to the project, I'll be glad to list your name/nick/email in the app's "about box"! But please check your hacks first, and ask me (here, in this thread) if you have any questions.

If you like this project, you may buy me a couple bottles of beer by donating, or by installing and rating "5 stars" my apps from the store

This app should work on the interop-unlocked Lumias and Samsung handsets ONLY.

Credits: I wanna say big "thanks" to @vcfan and @-W_O_L_F- for their work (I used their RPC libraries), and to all whitehats from xda-dev!

Thank you, @djamol, hope, you'll add tweak or two to the list (you can attach xml to your reply here) and I'll be glad to add you to the contributors list (actually, you can do it in xml )

As for UI, I'm planning to add some UI customization (colors and font sizes) via xml file (by using themes). Probably, will do tomorrow.

@irshad2809, if you see this message, it means the RPC component is failed to initialize. BTW, how you unlock your L-630? By using @vcfan procedure?
I don't have any L-630 but already tried on L-635 & L-822 (unlocked by @vcfan method).

I've modified slightly RPC initialization procedure and added message boxes to display possible errors.

Could you try attached version (don't pay attention to the tweak list, I'm working on it now)?
