Default Platform.alx Editing

Please Login to Remove!

I mentioned once before how you can remove the Push To Talk option by editing the Platform.alx file and changing the pttApp="True" and making it pttApp="False".

I noticed that the same line has entries Theme="Normal" and ThemeSupport="Enhanced". Does anyone know if there are other options allowed for Theme, and if so what they might do? I'm guessing Theme="Enhanced" might be an option, but I'm not quite daring enough to try changing it without some clue what might happen.

Is anyone out there daring enough to try changing it?

I know you can remove PTT by deleting the files. I am more intrigued by the way you can remove it with the Platform.alx file. It has other options listed and I wondered if anyone had tried editing them to see what they do.

Personally I change the VendID from 102 to 999. It doesn't even try to install PTT, and if you run Application Loader, it removes it for you.

We're getting away from where I was going with this thread.

I want to know if anyone has tried editing the "Theme=Normal" setting and if so what it does. It seems odd that they would have a "Theme=Normal" setting without there being the possibility of other options. Does anyone have any idea what they might be?
