    Default How to customise the look and sound of your TT

    Although TT claims this feature is only available for the new models and the X40 series I noticed that you can change the Home icon for basically any V9 Navcore.
    Here is the how to:
    Create a BMP file of 32x32 pixels with a red background (the red will be transparent in the map view) and 24bit color depth.
    Save the file as "althome.bmp" in the folder "skins" - if the folder does not exist you have to create it.
    After the next start you enjoy your own custom Home icon.

    Other icons that can be used to modify the look:
    suspendtw.bmp - no idea what the diffenerence to the standard suspend.bmp / suspendw.bmp is, root of the device
    suspendntw.bmp - no idea what the diffenerence to the standard suspend.bmp / suspendw.bmp is, root of the device
    crowd.bmp - so far I can not find this icon for anything on my device
    altfav.bmp - as above, gives you a different icon for the home address, folder "skins"
    altbuddy.bmp - icon for your buddies, only works if you actually use the service "skins"
    ClassCar.bmp - is accepted but can't see it anywhere LOL
    antitheft.bmp - shutdown image, root of the device
    antitheftw.bmp - shutdown image for widescreen devices, root of the device
    slpash.bmp - start image (comes after the boot), root of the device
    slpashw.bmp - start image for widescreen devices, root of the device
    SafetyCam.bmp - should give a different icon for the TT cams but I don't use the TT cams anymore, folder "skins" or maybe in the map folder
    horizon.bmp - this is claimed to change the view of the sky in the 3D map view but it seems not to be working, test if you like

    Other stuff:
    ringtone.ogg - costum ringtone for your calls - copy into the root of your device
    cr.ogg - not sure yet...
    smsreceived.ogg - custom sound for receiving a SMS

    suspend.ogg - shutdown sound
    splash.ogg - startup sound
    noautosuspend.dat - changes how the TT enters the suspend mode, just an emty textfile in the root
    noautosuicide.dat - same as above but for total shut down, device should stay in stand by until battery flat
    suicide.dat - textfile with a value inside, the value (in seconds) regulates after what time the TT goes from standby to fully off
    All the files from other stuff go into the root of your device.

    Have fun modifing the look of your TT!
    As mentionened by tendriver some of the things won't work in other emulations than X40 or X50, that is due to the stupid limitations TT still includes in their Navcores...
