With the advent of Darks awesome new Rom's, both the Expo and IQ rom's have been tested and work without issues. The one thing to point out is that Dark has added some of the tweaks into those rom's so some of the check box's will already be checked off (this is normal for those rom's).Current version:
2.00 .Net3.5 (Mar. 12, 2010)
(see install instructions if you were using version 1.00 - 1.01 .Net2.0)
In this release the following registry edits can be enabled and disabled (toggle mode):* New Section for Autorotation:
- Auto rotation (all)
- Create application dependent reg. keys for autorotation (on/off) Reg. tweak list continues to grow:
- Enable call recording feature
- Enable extended ringtones
- Replace redundant alarm feature to comm. manager on today screen (New: selectable comm. between LG and X2)
- Increase screen sensitivity
- Improved touch response
- Set .Net 3.7 as default (if installed)
- Set .Net 3.5 as default
- Enable Cleartype in landscape
- Increase IE performance
- Enable IE smooth scrolling
- Adjustable Keypad backlight delay (5-60 sec)
- Disable proximity sensor
- Disable A-GPS
- Disable LG dialer (Defaults to WM)
- Disable Startup animation (frees up mem. But takes longer to boot)
- Disable LG Taskbar override (Thanks to Jug6ernaut)
- Editing of MediaNet settings
- Enable tethering (Expo only, grayed out on IQ)
- Enable threaded SMS/MMS (IQ)
Also Oneshot or one time registry edits (disable redundant features not available on the device/enable disabled features). I've also added a re-do button for those that suspect these reg. tweaks were not successfully created (they can be reapplied). This feature will also be handy if any of these tweaks need to be modified in the future (previous version - once tripped, you could no longer re-do tweak).
- WM 6.5 Performance boost - (thanks to Dark and WMX)
- Free mem. (Replication) - (thanks to Dark and WMX)
- Disable infrared scanner
- Disable smartcard
- Disable software disable
- Enable missing sound notification options - (thanks to Dark)
More to be added as we find them. Install instruction:
Requires .Net 3.5 framework installed, I've simplified the instructions, download the NETCFv35.wm.armv4i.cab
file and install it.
* The Expo and IQ by default (OEM Rom's) only come with version 2.0 so you will need to install this update. Newer Rom's almost all come with .Net 3.5 or .Net 3.7 so you can skip this step.
* The .pdf instructions don't reflect the simplified instructions yet.InstallEITweakerN35.CAB
at the bottom of this post.
* for those running the older Expo\IQ Tweaker in .Net 2.0, please remove it unless you like the idea of running both an old and current version of the same thing (nothing is removed from older versions, I just add to the list of tweaks). In 'Remove Programs' it will be labeled "OGTech InstallEITweakerN20"Instructions are simple:
As Tweaker continues to grow so do the instructions and this area is consuming to much space. For those that need it, please download the instructions file called TweakerV2.pdf
. A new section has been added for the newly developed autorotation section.
* I did discover an issue with creating the "Enable missing sound notification options". For those that have already enabled this feature you may want to use the new feature in the "Oneshot" section ( X - button) and re-trip this tweak.
I need to thank the LG-Expo community for their input into this project along with my beta testers.
Dark, WarRaven, glownlow, Jug6ernaut, my own phone... not sure it will ever be the same (refused to do a hard reset throughout this project) and last but not least the guy how's phone I keep borrowing cause it has no registry edits... YET... Dude, guess you want your phone back again huh?
Please keep those newly found registry tricks coming and I'll keep updating the application when I've got time.
This application was written specifically for the LG Expo (USA) and IQ (CAN). I don't recommend installing it on any other device as this affects registry settings tailored for these LG devices. I highly recommend you do a full system backup prior to changing any settings in the registry just in case something goes wrong.
I've been toying with this idea since I got my IQ. Would anyone be interested in a tweaking program specific to our devices?
We keep finding registry tweaks and I'm wondering if we should combine them as they are found and make a single program with all registry edits imbedded into this app. Instead of running them as cab files or editing the registry manually we'd toggled them on and off by check box's within the app. It would not get any easier than that. This way you could enable or disable any setting without ever having to get down and dirty in the registry or by running multiple cabs. I'd be willing to program it but would need everyone's input as new tweaks are found to keep it up to date.
Just a thought...
