Q9m Apps and Hacks

Here is a list of Apps and Hacks I have done for my Motorola Q9m running on VZW.

These apps and hacks should work with any Q.

So someone pm-ed me and asked what I use for hacks and what I recommend for software...I was thinking that we do have a thread for hacks but it might be interesting to see what some of us use and which we recommend...RUDEBOY/N99HOCKEY feel free to edit this if needed but I am just going to copy/paste the response I sent back to the person.

LOL so who said check with me thats funny...o well I got lots.

First you will need to get RESCO explorer and registry editor. Then the apps depend greatly on what you want. As for hacks here is what I have done...some customization and some for improvements...

Pocket IE speed boost...

Increase CPU speed (will drain battery more I used 2 go 2-3 days now I go one long day)...


Now the others are from the Q Hack sticky I just picked ones I like but they are not all on a forum so I will copy & paste some...

Speed Hack______________________________________________ _
1) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\GDI\GLYPHCACHE
-> change limit from 16384 to 32768

2) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\STORAGEMANAGER\FATFS
-> change cachesize to 4096

Disabling beep when hitting send to dial a number (djcampis)________
Go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Sounds\Dialing
-> Change the value for the Sound string to *none*


No Camera Click Sound______________________________________
Go to:
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Pictures\Camera\OEM\Sou ndFile

Change the string/value:
\windows\shuttersound_02_secs.wav

to say:
\windows\*none*


No Startup Sound___________________________________________
Go to:
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Sounds\SystemStart \Sound
Change:
\Windows\Piano.wav to \Windows\*none*


Disable SMS sent...

This is for if you want to browse the device for file transfer great for sending/receiving everything and it allows you to view all folders not just My Documents...

Customization for phone name...

Maxing Headset and earpiece volumes...

................
Software:
Sprite backup
TCPMP
AgileMessenger
Bankarama
Contact Fix

Sniper(though it isn't functional yet...I just have it and am waiting)
