7MP Panorama Tweak
See here

Manilla StartMenu (Provided by LRC):

HKLM\Software\HTC\EnlargeMenu
EnableManilaStartMenu = 1

(orginal TF3D startmenu) / 0(old WM startmenu)

is not needed…..
HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila
Manila://programs.page.hidden = 0
is not needed…..

GPS
(Tested & provided by DGH)
A. With Advanced config nel menu GPS
disable A-GPS
disable GPS logging
logfile name must be empty
old logfile name must be empty
maximum size of logfile must be 0
delete the files :
\windows\GPSLogFile.txt and \windows\GPSLogFileBack.txt

With those changes car usage will be quite perfect

B. Then edit registry
Under: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\
Drivers\GpsOneDevice\PollInterval -> 100 (default is 1000)
Drivers\InputBufferSize -> 512 (default is 4096)
Drivers\OutputBufferSize -> 512 (default is 4096)
Drivers\SleepOnNoData -> 100 (default is 1000)
Multiplexer\MaxBufferSize -> 512 (by default not present, you have to create it)
With those tweaks pedestrian usage will be much better but not perfect.

Remove Locked Start Menu / Programs tab Items

Free up the start menu / Programs Tab icons that are there by default and not removable you need to change (Thanks Mallman):

HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/0/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/1/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/2/IsReadOnly
HKLM/Software/HTC/Manila/ProgramLauncher/3/IsReadOnly

Change this value from 1 to a 0 and you can then edit their shortcuts.

Bluetooth settings

Can be found here HKLM\Software\WIDCOMM\

A2DP Tweak Provided by R_phAn (Please note this will not work with all devices)
As we know from the past, each device has it’s own preferences and capabilities (So you’ll have to play around)
Managed to improve soundquality by adding DWORD ‘LineSpeed’ to HKLM\Software\WIDCOMM\Plugin\AV\ with a value of 320.

Remove BT Notification on Connect/Disconnect of headset / car kit thanks to Wensing

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel]
@=””
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications\{607CDEA2-E44A-4528-A2C3-A7DC6B6D824D}]
“AvailableOptions”=dword:00000009
“Default”=”Bluetooth warning”
“Options”=dword:00000000

Now go to Settings – Sounds & Notifications and change the options of the “Bluetooth warning” notification.

Bluetooth: Receive files without entering passkey(Thanks Jzhyok)

By default Bluetooth settings, when a device which is not on your paired devices list is going to send you a file by BT OBEX Push, the BT manager requires a passkey that is annoying and useless. Yet, you can’t disable this in the normal control panel.

So, here is the solution:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WIDCOMM\BTConfig\Servi ces\0002]
“Encryption”=dword:00000000
“Authorization”=dword:00000000

“Encryption”
0: No passkey is needed.
1(def): Requires passkey if the file is sending by devices NOT in the paired list.

“Authorization”:
0: Receive all files automatically without asking.
1(def): Ask for each file if you wanna receive(you have to choose whether to receive or not).

Wifi allways on thanks Jzhyok

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\BCMSDDHD1\Parms]
“HTCKeepWifiOnWhenUnattended”=dword:00000001

To enable 2 way recording just change:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\WaveDev]”VocRecPath”=dword:00000002

and you’ll be able to record with any software.

If you want to use WM6 native recording (WAW only, on \my documents\notes, manual activation: during a call hit “record” on call menu) create:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\AudioRecording]”Enabled”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Voice]”EnableCallRecordMenuItem”=dword:00000001″AllowInCallRecording”=dword:00000001

Don’t forget to turn off (and on again ) the device after you modify/create the keys.

Opera in Task Manager (Thanks to Quarintus)

* Go to: HKCU\Software\HTC\TaskManager\ExclusiveList\System
* There delete Opera9.exe (now it will show in the task manager)

To close opera by pressing the X-button instead of minimizing it follow these steps:(Thanks to Quarintus)
Code:

* Go to: HKCU\Software\HTC\TaskManager\TerminateProcess
* There, create a DWORD with the name Opera9.exe value “1”
