View Full Version : Registry Editor for i600 (and other smartphones)

11-27-2003, 03:07 PM
I cant find the discussion where we were talking about a registry editor for the i600.

We all know PHMRegEdit doesnt work on the i600.

But I have a funky version of RescoExplorer that has a registry editor in it that no one could find.

Here is Resco's response to my question:

1. The number "2003" in the name "Explorer 2003" does not mean that it is only for SmartPhone 2003 (WM 2003). It means that the product was introduced to the market in the year

2. There are two versions for SmartPhone:
"Explorer 2003 for SmartPhone 2002"
"Explorer 2003 for SmartPhone 2003" (what is equal to Windows
Mobile 2003-based SmartPhone but shorter)

Both versions are available on our web page
The version for 2002 is available also "over-the-air" at

3. Up to version 4.30 the Explorer 2003 package contained the Registry
Editor. Starting with version 4.40 we decided
to lower its price (by $5) and exclude the registry editor into
separate installation called "Resco Registry Add-in".
The users who bought the original version (for $19.95) with
registry will obtain the registration codes for free.
The users who bought the cheaper version (for $14.95) have to
purchase the Registry Add-in separatelly.

Anyway to use this to get rid of the multiple start up screens? Having to wait for all those advertisments makes the PDA functions pretty poor if you just want to turn on the phone and access some info quickly.

I sure want to keep this phone if I can get it replace my PDA/Phone collection.

No way to get rid of them but you can change them. Oh wait. Not really dure about the i600...but you can change them on other models using reg tweaks. I'll check.

But why do you keep turning your phone on and off? Keep it on. It lasts for days with the large battery. Plus, how will people call you?

Everytime you turn it off then back on, you're booting up just like a PC. You dont expect your PC to just pop on do you?

Well I use it like a PDA sometimes. And if it is off and I want to check a fact stored in say e-wallet it takes 33 seconds to get to the home screen as opposed to almost instantly on my PDA that I'm trying to replace.

The lonly reason to turn it off is battery life conservation.

Any help would be appreciated.

While playing with the registry, I accidently deleted a few keys and I was hoping that someone with an i600 and a registry viewer can post what these 3-4 lost values are:

The location of the values are at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Volume

I remember there was like 3-4 values, with the value names being something like "Screen", "Keys", etc.

So, if anyone with an i600 who also has a registry editor could let me know the names of those key values, their type (STRING, DOUBLEWORD, etc) and their value, it would be greatly appreciated :)

All DWORDS (and my current values in hex):
- Key (2)
- Mute (7)
- Screen (2)
- Volume (FFFFFFFF)
