Most of us advanced Windows Mobile users are tweaking the registries of our devices to get more out of it. Sometimes because the ODMs and OEMs either have disabled some of the features or because you want something different than Microsoft or the ODM has predefined. However, tweaking the registry always causes the risk to damage the device which can result in having a hard-resetting to get it back alive again. Easier and more convenient is the way to use an application which does the changes for you - like fit4cat Hermes Tweaker which was recently released for the HTC Hermes (aka O2 Xda trion, T-Mobile MDA Vario II, Orange SPV M3100 or HTC TyTN).
Basically it's a compilation of known registry hacks as you can find it over at Xda-developers.com but as I said, it's all together in one handy application and you don't have to fire up your Registry Editor.
- Enable GPS Settings
- Enable and show the Wireless plugin in Today screen
- Disable the OEM/Carrier Phone Skin
- Remove Battery and Wireless Manager from Tray Icon
- Disable SMS Sent Notification
- Show Cap/Shift State
- Enable and Mount Extended ROM
- Improve Bluetooth Stereo A2DP Sound Quality
- Enable/Disable HSDPA
fit4cat Hermes Tweaker is available for free from the developer page but requires a forum registration. However, at the moment the site is available in German only, including the registration. But you only have to fill out the first 4 forms: "Benutzername" (User Name), "eMail Adresse" (E-Mail), "Passwort" (Password), "Passwort wiederholen" (Repeat Password). After you get a confirmation E-Mail with a link you have to follow to activate your registration. After you've followed the link you can login and download fit4cat Hermes Tweaker.
