Hi...

For those who wants to run RealVGA with Spb Mobile Shell on their I780, attached please find the modified files.

Please note that the files are only meant for Spb Mobile Shell + RealVGA, and the screen will be messed up if you don't.

This is the 9 icon launcher menu (no 12 pinning icons). For the 9th icon, please do a search as to how to amend your registry in this forum.

Though this is my first attempt at changing the xml files, it has been tested on my I780 and it will work with RealVGA.

Enjoy, and please feedback if you have any problems.

How are we supposed to use these files? I tried to put them to my SPB shell install directory but still nothing happens when I tap SPB shell icon. Do I need to do some regedit or something?

1. Install RealVGA (with both 128dpi and 96 dpi).
2. Select RealVGA at 128dpi.
3. Install SPB MS 2.1.
4. Run SPB MS 2.1.
5. SPB MS 2.1 should run fine as it supports 320x320 at 128dpi.
6. Unzip the attached files to replace those stock dat files.
7. Go back to RealVGA.
8. Select 96dpi.
9. Automatically it will soft reset your I780.
10. Run SPB MS 2.1
11. SPB MS 2.1 will run under 320x320 at 96dpi mode.

Hope this helps.

To get the 9th icon, unzip and store the reg in your document folder. Click on the reg and you will be prompted whether to add the file to the registry. Click yes and the option for the 9th icon is generated.

Go to the Spb MS 2.1 option. You will be able to select the Games as an option to your SpbMenu.

Themes? Themes only select the colour that you want. However, I still have problems using the SPB MS2.1 them settings. I can only use the stock settings to change the theme.

Note that in order to run properly, you need to install both sets of dpi (96dpi and 128dpi) for the RealVGA. To get the SPB MS 2.1 running, you need to set it at 128dpi first, otherwise MS 2.1 will not run at all.

As to your working battery meter, you can try Resco.

Please do report if you are successful. With this in place, my next project will be to change the format. There are a lot of useful information in the Skins and Theme thread. Referencing will be from there.

Of course, this is subject to the time that I have.

I was able to properly install it and use it. It's very nice! I only installed 96 without 128. What i did was install trial version of ms coz the registered version had missing files...(no MA_.. files) trial version worked properly. Reg version showed nothing.

Here's what I did

1. install trial version of ms
2. copy all the files in the folder
3. install reg version of ms
4. paste all the copied folder files onto spb ms folder
5. Select no on all overwrite
6. Paste gOOndu's files. This time overwrite.

Reset and all is good

Goond,
Yeah i couldnt read the hex either or I need more time. I need to look more into it. I've seen so many nice themes for 2.1 in this forum. They change it up real nice. I could not figure out the 9th button but I'm happy you posted it. It makes my job easier. Thanks I love your release btw im so happy to uninstall my HTC Home, gives me so much space on my today now. Thanks again.

games.reg did not work for me but ill look into it more.

Installed and clicked it a couple of times and did soft reset variations. maybe it was because we did two different installation methods although it shouldnt affect anything.

My bad. It works now. After clicking the reg, I can check the games menu on settings/customize menu. After that games folder is now accessible!
