Premature ramblings about WP7

So, yesterday was Microsoft's press conference about Windows Phone 7 Series. I'm sure we all saw it and many have written up their responses to it. I thought to let it sink it in for a day before writing about it, and that day has now passed. There a ...

About: Taskbar Customizer

Taskbar Customizer is an effort to give you a proper good-looking many colored taskbar in WM, that your friend will drool over. At the time of writing it is in design stage.

Higher ratio on CFC compression

Seems I overlooked something when building the CFC compressor. After revisiting it in my head today over my morning coffee and ciggarette, a very obvious optimization struck me.

WMLongLife for CDMA

Thanks to some heavy use of IDA, and hack-testing by Dan-<device>, Conflipper and AstainHellbring, it seems we have figured out 2G/3G band switching for MSM7K CDMA (MSM75xx). In this case, 2G is 1xRTT only, 3G is Hybrid, and 3G 'Force' is EV-DO ...

GfxBoost extra background info

I just wanted to explain some stuff some of you may and/or may not be aware of. Please consider that I am not a Qualcomm engineer and how I see things are probably not always 100% correct, and my own research on these things is still in progress / ev ...

About: GfxBoost

For HTC-built MSM7K-based devices only! All MSM7K are technically capable, but only HTC's may have the correct drivers. Will probably not work on stock ROMs. I suspect the CDMA versions of the older MSM7K devices - pre-diamond - do not have the neces ...

About: WMRegOptimizer

WMRegOptimizer is a small tool that tries to optimize registry access - "defrag" it, if you will. It doesn't perfectly defrag it, but it goes a long way. This results in somewhat faster registry access for applications where this is the bot ...

FireROM was a prestege thing: the first custom ROM available for the GSM Touch Pro (Raphael). It was basically a stock ROM, cleaned up, tweaked, and adding a couple of very handy programs I personally like to use.

Many carriers remove the ICS component needed by several Internet Sharing applications. It took some research, cooking and a lot of trial and error, but eventually I was able to create a CAB file that installs this component. Google will help you fin ...
