App: WPH Tweaks (Updated Mar 6th)
Posted on 03-06-13 02:58 pm

Here it is, folks. The initial release of my WPH Tweaks application, which allows simple, elegant tweaking of various options in the WP7 operating system.

This application will serve as a place for me to stuff various tweaks I find in the operating system, and is my attempt at making something a little more elegant than usual. Hopefully other eyes will see it this way; still trying to get some of this Silverlight/Metro design ethos down ;)

Here's the important information:


  • Simple and elegant
  • Toggle Dehydration
  • Toggle clock visibility
  • Toggle 32bit color
  • Enable 'never' screen timeout
  • Enable soft shutter button in camera
  • New: Disable start list jump letters
  • New: Change the amount of apps listed in the task switcher
  • New: Tango only: Static IP, export contacts to SIM
  • New: Rearrange the settings menu
  • Allow media access while the phone is syncing
  • Spoof Xbox "Gold" status and send messages without subscription
  • Change phone's voice
  • Charge your phone wirelessly (not really, but it'll make the OS think that)
  • Change your OEM Marketplace
  • Change volume control ratio, allowing for finer or quicker control
  • Add Google as an IE search provider
  • Custom alert sounds (see below)
  • Remove/restore update targeting
  • Remove/restore carrier splash screen
  • Restart your phone quickly after tweaking
  • Enable SmartDJ outside of the US
  • New: Splash changer
  • New: Keyboard Customizer
