The reason why I added this new tweak and application is because I keep getting missed calls on my HTC Touch Pro. ­čÖé

Do you ever notice you keep getting missed calls too ? It’s either the tight fitting case decided to touch Ignore on the screen while you are pulling out your phone or you just can’t pick up the phone on time.

I have no idea what Gyrator means but it’s a program to customise what actions to execute based on the events that your Touch Pro’s accelerometer generates.

For e.g, I can configure in such a way that when I turn my Touch Pro facing down, it will turn the screen off.

Recently, my friend, Dave, participated in Aviva Ironman 70.3 and met with a nasty accident. As you can see on the left, he broke his right clavicle when he crashed his bike trying to avoid water bottles on the road.

Yet he finished his race ! Salute !

As a result, he will need 2 separate surgeries, first to insert that metal piece, second to remove. He will require 4-6 months of rest and will probably miss Ironman next year. His dream for an Ironman.. he got it literally.

By default, HTC Touch Pro comes with .Net Compact Framework 2, I have to install 3.5 to get certain applications working. Here’s a tweak to enable 3.5 by default instead of 2.

What you need to do:

1. Install NetCF3.5 on your ppc.
2. Open a registry editor, I use Reso Regsitry Editor
3. Goto HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETCompactFramework (this is usually the first entry
4. When you open this you’ll see all the .NET installed version change the DWORD value of 2.0.7045.00 from 1 to 0
5. Chang ethe DWORD value of 3.5.7283.00 from 0 to 1.
6. Reboot
7.Viola! you have a faster PPC

Adding another tweak which helps in increasing the overall volume for HTC Touch Pro

Make a copy of the /Windows/AudioPara3.csv to your folder for backup

Unzipá the AudioPara3_lighter_boost.zip or AudioPara3_full_boost.zip and move the extracted AudioPara3.csv to /Windows/.

As it’s a system folder, you may need to use Total Commander or Resco Explorer to execute that action.

Reset your phone for it to take effect.

After I found the hack to extend or remove the auto phone lock which is enforced by the Microsoft Exchange Security Policy. The changed settings don’t really last, even after disabling the “Enable Device Policy Update” !

So as long as that 15min time out lock came back, I have to apply the hack settings again. Oh bummer..

Added a new hack to my tweaks and tips for HTC Touch Pro.

You can change the Battery Icons, this hack will present your battery level in percentage rather than bars in the default.

The .cab installation didn’t work for me, I downloaded and replaced thephcanOverbmp.dll and import the FInix VGA Battery and Network Icons.reg manually.

My story on why I decided to change the phone lock timeout.

When I first power on my HTC Touch Pro, I went through the start up wizard, it prompt me to set a phone lock pin and a timeout for activating the lock. I decided to go with 15mins, since I can change it later.

I decided to configure an Exchange profile on my Touch Pro for my office emails, since I have a Mobile Broadband plan with a 50GB data limit.
