Co0kie's Home Tab v2.0.0 - Final Released
Overview: Co0kie's Home Tab (CHT) is a Sense 2.5 Home Tab modification which bring a lot of new features and customization options to Sense.
Requirements and Compatibility:
Manila (Sense) 2.5 on a WVGA or VGA device is required - HVGA is not supported.
While the mod will run on any OS version, the CHT lockscreen that comes with the base cab requires Windows Mobile 6.5 or higher to work. For WM6.1 see the CHT lockscreen alternative addon cab below.
Starting with v1.8.5 .Net 3.5 is also required. You can download it here.
The mod is not compatible with other larger Manila mods (like MaxManila or MaxSense). Smaller home tab mods (like transparency) and mods that don't affect the home tab are fine.
CHT has built in wallpaper controls so bg4all mods or the hq wallpaper patch are no longer compatible (they are built in).
Manila 2.5 subversion compatibility is as follows:
2.5.1920, 2.5.1921, 2.5.1922, 2.5.2011, 2.5.2012, 2.5.2013, 2.5.2014, 2.5.2015, 2.5.2016, 2.5.2017, 2.5.2018, 2.5.2019
Nothing for now.
To check your Manila version: go to the settings tab in Sense, scroll down, select "About phone", and then "Software Information".
(If those options aren't available on your settings tab that means you have a Sense version that is older than 2.5.)
If you have any problems with this mod please report your full Manila version (e.g. 2.5.xxxxxxxx), the device and ROM you are using.
About v2.0.0 Final:
CHT version v2.0.0 bring major changes. Most of the mod has been rewritten from the ground up, every line of code has been looked over and optimized for speed. Lots of new features have also been added along with an addon widget framework. Generally the mod is more configurable than ever.
You must uninstall any previous version of CHT and soft reset before installing this one.
If CHT was cooked into your custom ROM, install over the cooked version.
A new version of CHTEditor is also available: CHTEditor v126.96.36.199 final - you must use the final version of CHTEditor with CHT 2.0 final.
There is no backward compatiblity with versions 1.x.x, so you can't import old CHTE 1.x settings files.
But you can import saved files from 2.0 beta into 2.0 final. Similarly, future versions will be compatile going forward, so you will be able to import your 2.0.0 settings into any 2.x.x version.
If you're upgrading from v2.0 beta, read this post.
