Which registry editor are you using?
oh its alright, i found a solution thank you for your help though!
I agree the media home screen is totally useless. I remapped the "toggle home screen" button to just pull up windows media player. I used the reg edit above except you need to change the Application to WMPlayer.exe (if anyone is interested)
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!! BEST HACK EVER!!!
Hi everyone... I am a new q9m owner, and needless to say, I am very happy to see these hacks made available so I can do some customizing on the phone.
Having never done any of these before, I am just wondering, does anyone know if any of the instructions from early in the history of this thread (since 9/07) are outdated, or are no longer applicable since applying any updates from Motorola or Microsoft?
Just want to make sure I don't brick my device... lol.
But, the IE homescreen, scroll bars, Verizon Media screen, and other stuff just gotta be changed!!
Thanks in advance.
they should still work
Awesome... everything I wanted to do worked like a charm. Thank you to everyone for posting these here.
On a side note... does anyone know how to change the VZW Classic Layout on the Q9M to say anything BUT "Verizon Wireless" on the home screen?
edit the xml file
if its on the image you need to use a photo editor to get rid of it
or you could just head to the homescreen collection thread and download one from there
I can handle both of those.... any ideas on where the XML files are located? If you can point me in the right direction, I can probably take care of the rest.
disable number dialing sound
I don't know if anyone had posted this hack some where else, but as I was disabling the call sound, I also wanted to disable the number keys sounds when I dial. Here it goes:
change BeepMode from 0 to 1.
no need to hack registry for this, simply go to:
start/settings/sounds/keypad control - and select "none"
I reaaaaaalllly want to have the media screen key bring up the camera. I tried this (using the rescoe registry editor), and followed everything very closely. But when I press the button, I get a message that says:
Can't find "Camera" (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all the required libraries are available.
So, what did I do wrong - or can anyone tell me how to fix this?
Nevermind.... I figured it out
for those looking for hard mods and key mapping for quick launch i've found one very easy thing to do is set application to speed dial for example if i wann use camera i pres and hold 9(also the letter c) for about 3 secs and camera start and then for pictures/ to view thumbnails i press and hold 3 for 3 secs for palringo press and hold 7 for task manager i use 2 skyfire is 4(the letter s) hope this helps =)
How did you get this to work? I followed the same steps and get the following error "Can't find "Camera" (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all the required libraries are available."
Can anyone help me with this? Thanks!
I made the same mistake and after 25 minutes figured out what I did. It is not .ink, it is actually .LNK
The .lnk is not a capital I, it is a lower case l that looks like a capital I.
Thanks! I got it to work
ok so I'm wondering why my vzw homepage on the phone now allows me to download and install vz navigator to my q9m? i did and ran it...says cant find gps...but didnt activate it either like it says you need too.......is this some sick tease?
Did you do the Q9c 6.1 update? The Q9c has access to VZ Navigator.
