WM5 – add IE browsing shortcut keys

Posted by onlydarksets on October 18, 2007

Source: Lars Dennert

Page Up and Page Down in IE

Key mapping for “Page Up” and “Page Down” in Internet Explorer

1. Open your favorite registry editor then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

2. Create a new key ‘KeyMaps’ (without the quotes)

3. Under KeyMaps, create 2 new DWORD values:

50 with a value data 1 (this will make key “2” Page Up)

56 with a value data 2 (this will make key “8” Page Down)

I created 2 more DWORD values:

52 with a value date 5 (this will make key “4” Page Left)

54 with a value date 6 (this will make key “6” Page Right)

The key name is the keycode you want. 50 = Key 2, 56 = Key 8, 52 = Key4, and 54 = Key 6.

Other DWORD values available are:

1 – Page Up
2 – Page Down
3 – Top
4 – Bottom
5 – Left
6 – Page Rignt
7 – Horizontal Top
8 – Horizontal Down
9 – Default Layout
10 – Desktop Layout
11 – One Column Layout
12 – Full Screen Toggle
13 – Show Pictures Toggle

Keycodes Values for 0-9: 48=’0′, 49=’1′, 50=’2′, 51=’3′, 52=’4′, 53=’5′, 54=’6′, 55=’7′, 56=’8′, 57=’9′.

4. Exit registry editor once you have mapped it to your favorite keys.
I use:
49 3, 50 1, 52 5, 54 6, 55 4, 56 2, 69 1, 70 6, 83 5, 87 3, 88 2, 90 4

CREDIT: Gadget & the fine people at modaco.com forums

69 with a value data 1 (this will make key “E or 2” Page Up)

70 with a value data 6 (this will make key “F or 6” Page Right)

83 with a value date 5 (this will make key “S or 4” Page Left)

88 with a value date 2 (this will make key “X or 8” Page Down)

Posted by onlydarksets on October 18, 2007

Source: Lars Dennert

\MAPI
\MAPI\ATTACHMENTS
(You can actually name them whatever you want, “Inbox” for example.)

Step 2. Now browse to \Windows\Messaging (SmartPhone) or \Windows\MAPI (PocketPC)
If you want to save all of your existing mail, move everything in this directory to the new ones on your Storage Card.

Step 3. Now fire up your registry editor and navigate to the following.

[ HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MAPI ]
Then create the following keys.
“AttachPath” (Value)= \Storage Card\MAPI\Attachments
“PropertyPath” (Value)= \Storage Card\MAPI
Step 4. Reboot your phone and then goto your inbox. If you can see all of your mail then mission accomplished. Double check your attachments as well.

Change background image for Q phone dialer

Posted by onlydarksets on December 11, 2006

You can change the background image at the top of the screen, which allows you to put, for example, a reference image that tells you which keypad number corresponds to which letters.

Just modify the following registry key:

  • HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Shell/Rai/:MSCdial/BannerImage

Increase web browsing speed on Q

Posted by onlydarksets on September 12, 2006

This hack changes the DNS servers (which the web browser contacts before each web request to figure out the IP address of the web server) from Verizon’s slooooowww DNS servers to OpenDNS.com’s FAST servers.

  1. Download and install PHM Registry Editor.
  2. Navigate to registry key:
    HKEY\Comm\Cellular Line\Parms\TcpIp\DNS
  3. Change default values to:
    1. 208.67.222.222
    2. 208.67.220.220

Note: Should you need them again, the default values are 66.174.95.44 and 69.78.96.14.

Application unlock the Q

Posted by onlydarksets on September 11, 2006

http://www.sems.org/entry.asp?ENTRY_ID=157

Special thanks goes to
spddemn at qusers.com.
Here is the easy steps:

  1. Download and install Device Security Manager Powertoy for Windows Mobile 5.0 from Microsoft. This is a nifty utility to show what security policy is in effect. If you connect your Q to your PC, you’ll see two tier security policy is in effect. (Edit by ODS: You need .NET 2.0 on your PC for this app to work).
  2. Download and copy secpolicies.cab to your Q (using ActiveSync, Total Commander, or just browse this site via Pocket Internet Explorer). I got this from Telus support, after following a post on qusers.com.
  3. Run and install it. This allows you to install third party SSL Root Certs.
  4. If you run Device Security Manager Powertoy for Windows Mobile 5.0 now (it is listed in Start – Programs as “Security Configuration Manager”, you’ll see now you are using One Tier Prompt. Select Security Off and click Provision. It will install tool.cab to your device and then provision the settings.

If you want to do it the hard way, you can also change registry keys:

[hkey_local_machine\security\policies\policies]

“0000101b”=dword:00000001
“00001017”=dword:00000090
“00001007”=dword:00000040
“00001005”=dword:00000028
“00001001”=dword:00000001

to the same effect. Interestingly, on many forums, value for 1017 is set as 090 (hex, originally 080), where as the above tool sets it to 10. Also 1005 is set to DE, where many articles I read sets it to 28. The rest is the same. But right after step 3, I was able to manually edit these keys via Resco Regedit or PHM Regedit (HTC Signed copy)
