does anyone have a working file they can upload?
just copy this
into the xml file replacing the 'carrier' plugin already there :smile:
thank you very much.. BUT, I have no idea where to copu it or how to open it.. I'm REALLY a noob... thanks..
copy the xml file from your Q and move it to the PC...then open the file to edit it in 'notepad' then at the top look for <!--carrier plugin--> and just replace what i posted with what is there....
then move the file back to the Q...reload the homescreen and your done :laugh2:
One More Step
Not quite. You have to replace the text saying "insert text here" with the text you want. That may be obvious, but never underestimate people's ability to miss things. :wink:
Technically, you also got the replacement instructions backward. You have to replace the existing carrier plug-in with what you posted, not the other way around. Again, that should be obvious, but some people may get confused.
thanks to all who are trying to help... BUT, in \App Data\Home i do not have a Carrier xml file... a few others, Edgy, Advanded Scheme, Hellomoto, etc...
what is the name of the screen you are using??
go to homescreen settings and check the name of it...and then go to the \application data\home folder and look for the file name and the copy it to your PC...
the <!--carrier--> info will be inside the xml file
Fo example... I copied the Evaporate xml and it only has the below:
<background bgimage="evaporate.jpg" valign="bottom" />
<color name="COLOR_TRAYGRADLEFT" value="#D8453B" />
<color name="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT" value="#A4A400" />
<color name="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHTTEXT" value="#435932" />
<color name="COLOR_HOMETEXT" value="#A4A400" />
Don't see the Carrier..
i have not worked with any of the standard screens...
have you just tried putting the code in and see what happens?
try putting it after </colorscheme> ...not sure that will work though...
try another one of the screens to test it out..
That's because you're using the wrong file. It sounds like you used Evaporate.scheme.xml (there is no Evaporate.xml that I see), which, as the name implies, is a color scheme file.
Plug-ins are defined in layout files and have names like something.home.xml. If you edit the correct layout file, you should see the Carrier plug-in there.
You're right it was the scheme file.. will check for the other.. thanks.
I think this is the golden post right here. I previously changed my file so that when I check my email (from Comcast) the number of new emails would actually appear on the homescreen.
So, when I tried to change my name on the phone I edited that file and put it back on my Q and it was nowhere to be found! I was freakin' out!
Then I took that file, opened it, copied and pasted the code into a new file, saved it (with the same name), put it back on my Q and bingo bango it was there.
It has something to do with that read-only crap. I assume what is happening is when you copy the file to your desktop it is somehow making it a read-only file therefore you can't "see" it on your phone when you put it back on after you make your edits... at least that is how I experienced it.
Props to scottjb for the knowledge.
I searched and searched - and I cant seem to find the registry on my Q
you realize you need to use a registry editor such as PHM Registry Rditor..
