    I found this....


    Hide/Show battery indicator in Task bar

    If you wish to hide the battery indicator in the task bar on some devices, you can set:

    HKLM\Services\Power\ShowIcon = 0 (DWORD decimal)

    And to show:

    HKLM\Services\Power\ShowIcon = 1 (DWORD decimal)

    Note that this icon and its feature may not be available on your device at all. For example, the HTC Wizard regularly ships with a battery indicator in the Tray instead, governed by "Windows\Startup\Init_Tray.exe"._
    _Note also that this reportedly does not work on AKU2 ROMs to remove the new battery indicator


    That reg entry is not on my 700w.

    Does anyone know a hack that will allow you to increase the number of "My Text" quick messages on the 700w. Currently the maximum number of My Text messages is 10.

In short, if you reset using the reset button you will keep seeing your changes being undone.

    I think Surur's post is pretty straight forward. Let me explain it to you like you're 5 years old (because maybe you are, who knows):

    1. You make a registry change
    2. You take the battery cover off and reset the device immediately after making the change.
    3. Your change will be lost once the phone reboots.

    You have to wait about 5 minutes before resetting the device in the above manner in order for WM5 to commit the registry change you made to memory. That's just how it is...it's windows.

    How to avoid this:

    1. Download a program like XCPUSCALAR or SPB that has a built-in reset utility within the program (a software button that you can click on or select in the program that resets the phone).
    2. Make your registry change
    3. Use the software you downloaded to reset your phone immediately after making the registry change INSTEAD of taking off the battery cover ...etc.
    3. Your change will be saved upon reboot

    You know what, nevermind. If you can't understand Surur's post you probably shouldn't be messing with the registry anyway. Sorry to waste another 5 minutes of your precious time.

    trieio, thanks for clarifying that for me. I just made the switch to wm5. I guess surur's post assumes some basic knowledge of wm5, which I'm trying to get a handle on. Hobbes should cut and paste your explanation to the first post. It's much better for the yet uninitiated such as myself. Thanks again for the lucid explanation.

    To the best of my understanding the reason behind this is due to the way WM05 manages it's memory. In WM05 there are TWO copies of the registry.....one in the storage memory (like a harddrive on a desktop) and a copy of that in the RAM (which the live one being used and modified when you make changes). When you make changes to the Registry in WM05, you are actually making changes to the Registry in the RAM only. The OS then needs time or the opportunity to copy the modified reg in RAM to the permanent copy in Storage. It will do this at some point on it's own. But if you want it take effect immediately and you need to reset the phone to do that, you will need to use a Soft Reset software utility to do that as it will copy the RAM copy of the Registry back to the Storage and save it before it resets. If you manually reset right after you modify the Reg, the copy of the Reg in RAM never had a chance to update the permanent copy in Storage......so you loose your changes.

    I made a Wiki Article based on this thread. Please feel free to add some of hacks I have not included.

Fortunately there is a tweak to display both the date and time instead of time only in the Pocket PC title bar :


    Browse to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\
    Create a binary value named "TBOpt" and set its value to "13 00 00 00".
    Save any unsaved document and reset your Pocket PC.

    This works for my 700W more or less. The date is displayed 9/14/0 however. How can I get the date to correctly display 9/14/06? Thanks!

    I do not have 700w/wx to test with, but my guess is one or combination of two factors:

    1) 240x240 screen tight real estate....just not enough room to display the whole date.

    2) Too many items in the top bar. If you are using a utility like Wisbar, unselect some of the items displayed along the top to make a little more room.

    SIP: Suggest More Words
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Sip] DWORD Name: SuggWords Value: (Choose your preferred number of suggested words - See below) Default value is 4. You may choose 0 to 6.
    First Hobbes, I just want to say thanks for all your contributions to all of us here at Treocentral. Your information has proven to be invaluable and I have already implemented many of the reg hacks.

    I have a question though on this "SIP". Basically , what is it? I see you use it your self all the time. Can you please elaborate. Thx.

    SIP is the feature that suggests words to help complete the intended word you typing. This hack lets you increase the amount words it will suggest. For example if you started to type the word CONTROL a little drop down list might offer the following words for you after you typed c-o-n-t

    contain
    container
    control

    Then you just use your 5 way nav to select the word you want instead of typing the whole thing out. I like to have 4 suggestions to choose from, instead of the default one or two.

    Hope this helps.

    great help, and it sounds like a great feature to hack. thx again.

    I just got my new 700WX, and for the life of me I can't turn off this message. Something pops up saying: "Connecting to Vision using a secured line, #777"

    It shows something like that. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You can turn that off in Sounds and Notifications. No need to mess with the registry for this one.

    Is there any registry setting that will INCREASE the time the "pop up sms notification" will "stay up" before it hides and then changes the left soft key from "messaging" to "notification"? I know a lot of people think the "pop up notifications" are annoying, but I like them (for SMS) and want them to stay permanently (or until I take action) or stay up longer than what they are staying up right now.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Since I (and millions of other folks) live in an area without EVDO and without any plan to ever have it, I have to manually sync email and then manually turn off the data connection since it blocks incoming phone calls. If there was a hack out there to turn of the data connection after a sync, we could at least set it up to check email on some sort of schedule. Can a hack be built to do this? Any chance I'm just an ***** and theres already a checkbox or something that does this?
