    Additional Highest connection speed drop-down menu entries:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cellular\MVSettings\IMSISpecific\Default\CellUX\

    HideHighestSpeed3GOnly = 0, enable "3G Only" mode
    HideHighestSpeed4GOnly = 0, enable "4G Only" mode
    HideHighestSpeed4G3GOnly = 0, enable "Only 4G or 3G" mode

    Also, you can rename modes to LTE or something else:

    HighestSpeed4G = "LTE"
    HighestSpeed4GOnly = "LTE Only"
    HighestSpeed4G3GOnly = "LTE or 3G only"

    If anyone finds the regedit to disable in app vibration for the Microsoft Messaging friend please share it. I have yet to find that one and need it since the HP Elite X3's vibrate motor is so obnoxious.

    Here are some I use every time I reset my phone. I use AT&T...and so certain SMS/MMS options are not enabled by default.

    This allows sms to smtp (Send emails via text AT&T), and other possibly useful sms/mms settings...*Note the SIM card ID in bold. Make sure you edit that before importing.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Messaging\PerSimSettings\REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_SIM_CARD_ID]
    "AllowSMStoSMTPAddress"=dword:00000001
    "AutomaticallyDownload"=dword:00000001
    "AutoRetryDownload"=dword:0000001
    "ConvertLongSMStoMMS"=dword:00000001
    "ErrorCodeEnabled"=dword:00000001
    "MaxRetryCount"=dword:00000003
    "MMSLimitAttachments"=dword:00000005
    "MS"=dword:00000400

    "ShowAutomaticallyDownloadMMSToggle"=dword:00000000
    "ShowRequiredMonthlyTest"=dword:00000000

    Show status of while sending message...

    "ShowSendingStatus"=dword:00000001

    Enable Capture Living Images on non-Lumia phones for the Camera app.
    RAW capture still does not work though even though it is an option I have not figured that one out on the other OEM phones...
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OEM\MMO]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OEM\MMO\Camera]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OEM\MMO\Camera\Barc]
    "DNGDisabled"=dword:00000000
    "IsEnabled"=dword:00000001

    Nokia Barc/DNG/Living image edits:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OEM\NOKIA\Camera]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OEM\NOKIA\Camera\Barc]
    "BarcVersion"="100.10"
    "IsEnabled"=dword:00000001

    Navigation Bar burn-in protection...Useful for AMOLED screens, and looks cool too..
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\NavigationBar]
    "IsBurnInProtectionEnabled"=dword:000000001

    Shutter sound option...On the HP Elite X3 this is not enabled by default...
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Photos\OEM]
    "ShutterSoundUnlocked"=dword:00000001

    I have many others but these I use after every hard reset when needed. Maybe might be useful to someone.
    going to try a few of these. god knows the phone cant get any more buggy, so why not!

    If a key is missing then you need to add it first then the value.

    Or put them all into a compliant reg file and import it.

    I really mean any phone without having Capture Living Images by default. Most lumias have that feature and all other OEMs do not.

    So to be clear, the Living Images feature is NOT able to be added to an Elite x3? Sorry, Ive done registry edits before but it sounds like I need to ADD to the registry. Would it be possible to get a list going of the reg edit/add features by phone? If there are some that aren't possible on some phones, might help others too.

    Ok Gotcha. I have tested the living images on the Idol 4s for North America and the Elite X3 and it works. If you cannot add those entries at all then you might be able to try the store version of interop tools and side load the provider file packages to edit/add more than what you are currently capable of.

    I tried to only add what I felt folks might want to try, and whether it is phone specific or not I cannot tell. If it is not there by default then that phone/device would need to be tested to see if it works. Some reg edits are global in that they map to global os settings and do not require Hardware, drivers, or services. Like the icon remap for H+ or H. That can be changed on any phone. The living images may or may not work on every phone but I have no idea which ones it won't work on yet.

    Well I got the option on the camera settings for living images!!! However, no living images are being taken with it toggled on. The files are tagged with LI at the end, which is nice to see. Is the Nokia edit part required? Perhaps my "BarcVersion"="100.10" was wrong? I have it as a String(REG_SZ)

    Yes. It's a string. Make sure hdr is on. Also hit the three dots on the photo to see if there is an option to "Show as living image". Could swipe and reopen the camera and photos app to or doe a reboot/soft reset...

    Just took a couple more after a forced restart. The ... menu doesn't have an option for living images but Edit has save photos from living image but when I tap it it errors and says something went wrong. I did a couple other edits in the list and they work fine, so at least I know I was able to do those right haha.

    What are the registry edits you have added so far? Actually, send me a PM I'll try to help you.

    EDIT:
    Did you add just these for the camera?

    TLDR: Do someone know how to enable Quiet Hours via the registry? Is it also possible to turn off animations, to make the phone more snappy?

    Great thread, it is exactly what I was looking for! I'm coming from a Nexus 6P and just bought a X3 and there is a lot of stuff I'm missing (which I knew I would before I bought the X3).

    I thought I wouldn't need to interop unlock my phone but it feels like I need to do that now to enable some of the features I'm missing. Some are listed in this thread. I read that interop tools would make the X3 unstable and hot, but I don't really see how this could happen unless you do any registery changes, but I just want to doublecheck before I proceed with the installation. Is this true?

    There are three features I missed tonight:
    1. A night mode which removed the blue light to make the screen more pleasent to read at night. I understand that this does exist in Windows 10 but not in W10M, so I guess I'm out of luck here until Microsoft inplement this in W10M.
    2. Quiet Hours. Since I don't live in one of the regions that have Cortana I can't use quiet hours, which imo is a stupid inplementation, and since this feature exist in code I hope it's possible to enable this via the registery. So do someone know how to enable this? I don't really care about Cortana, but if that's needed to enable Quiet Hours I will of corse enable it as well. I don't want to change to my language and region, so that's why I'm asking here.
    3. Is it possible to turn off animations, to make the phone more snappy?

    3. Is it possible to turn off animations, to make the phone more snappy?
    I am not sure how to enable Quiet Hours without Cortana...It is integrated with cortana though. I think there is a way to enable Cortana if your region does not support it. I saw someone suggest this in the forums somewhere...

    I am not certain on the heat issue after unlocking. I never noticed anything abnormal on my end. But each persons phone is unique to how they use it...

    Night light/Mode is not possible on Windows 10 mobile, unless maybe you consider Lumias that have Color Profile installed and are able to dial the Cool/Warm color setting all the way over to furthest Warm setting.

    Animations I believe can be adjused in interop tools from the tweaks section. But do not quote me on that. They are some where near the bottom, but I have no clue how they are defined. What numbers you could set there or what they would mean. For example Hover TileFlyout Idle Timer Interval or Hover TileFlyout End Timer Interval, but I think those for when tapping an app and probably not transitioning. You will need to just dig and play around there if you so desire. If you find out something though do share it here.

    Best place for help for that is on the interop tools thread on the xda forums. There are more than several versions of the app and the store version is more or less in beta. But it's a bit complicated if your not familiar with how the app works. . .You're better off sideloading a prerelease version and dependencies from the xda version using the guide already provided there.

    Thanks for this! I hate the AT&T logo every time the phone boots.

    Just installed Interop Tools on my 950 and can't believe I haven't done it sooner. Here's my new boot screen I just whipped up in Photoshop for anyone interested. Looks great because of the black background and OLED screen.

    Attachment 135654

    Nice!
    Can you share your pic specs?
    I've got a new image too, but it looks a bit crappy, as in a lot.
    I don't know how many pix and px/inch I need for this start up pic.

    I edited the registry on a Lumia 640 to enable Static IP and it worked perfectly. I was so happy (this was on windows 10 mobile).

    I tried doing the same in a Lumia 950... and the key isn't even there D: ! Also I couldn't add it, I hope someone manages to fix this.

    I have seen a lot of people defending this saying stuff like editing dhcp settings on router is way better, but not everybody can do that, has access to that, or even is in that case use. There are different uses for static IPs, like testing, specific applications, etc. It should be an option, some people will use it, some people won't, and everybody will be happy.



    Anyways, here's the key to change the boot screen (the image that appears briefly during booting) so you can get rid of your carrier's annoying images if you don't want to change the firmware:
    Key path: HKLM\SYSTEM\Shell\OEM\BootScreens
    Registry value name: WPBootScreenOverride
    Registry type is string.

    In the value data you have to input the location of the image you want to display when booting, for example for an image inside the "documents" folder that is called "boot.jpg" the value would be:

    \Data\Users\Public\Documents\boot.jpg

    ( The public folders are in the route \Data\Users\Public , so if your image is in any of the public top level directories (Pictures, Downloads, Documents etc) you have to append that in there, like I did for documents folder.

    The image resolution has to be small enough to fit your phone's screen resolution. Also it has to be 24 bits per pixel jpg.

    Good luck.
    Thnx for the sublime info to change the logo/picture.
    Just struggling with the height & width and pix/inch.
    Any suggestions?

    I have a Lumia 950 but ran into a problem. I'd like to scoot some fiddles under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\SHELL\OEM\] but that's as far as I can go. Under \OEM\ there's only Go Back. There are so many fun tweaks I'd like to make. What can I do?
    I thought it was a Region and/or Language issue. But I changed Region on the phone to USA and Language to English, but I still can't go further.

    So you see no other keys or values there?
    It looks like you need to use the vcreg method on XDA to further unlock your 950. Did you unlock the 950 with this method yet? You won't be able to edit much of the registry until you do.
