TX Status bars, the problem of getting home...

Well, you went and bought a TX, charged it up, turned it on, and opened a program. You want to leave the program, so naturally, you hit the bottom left corner of the screen. But what is this? The "Find" dialogue pops up. You look down, and see that in fact that is a find icon down there. You look closer, and see that the first hard button is configured as home. This isnt good!

Dont worry, because we have a solution. Tyler Faux (Sharky on the 1src boards) has developed a program that makes the find button act like the home button when you tap it, but acts like find if you swipe up from the button. Better yet, with a little skinning help from yours truly, we were able to get the home icon onto it also, so now it looks just like the LifeDrive status bar. The app is called SharkTXFix, and it comes in two pieces. There is the main program, which changes what the button does, and the status bar resource file, which reskins the button to look like the home button. It is optional, and is a little large (though it is compressed) because it replaces the entire skin file, and not just that bitmap (which is somewhat unavoidable).


You can download this program at Sharkys homepage LudusTech.com

Ya, I couldn't figure out why Palm did that. They got everything to fit on the LifeDrive. Why did they have to change it for the TX?

Anyway, the utility isn't working 100% yet. Tyler is working on it. Some of us get errors when trying to install it.

Some info on that. The application itself has to be activated. It has a UI, so click on the program and activate it. As for the StatusBarResource, you need to move it to an expansion card, and then copy it over to the handheld. You cannot sync it, and you may need to do a soft reset after installing that part.

Hi,
I beleive that the LD had a dedicated key for screen rotation!
