I used this before and the theme is awesome, but I had to give it up due to the lack of a working Facebook and Twitter widget. Does anyone have these working yet? I would like to give MSkip's theme a go again....thanks

Default WARNING: May need hard reset after uninstalling WP7 V2 Theme for Spb Mob

I have just hard reset my HD2 after uninstalling WP7 V2 Theme for Spb Mob.

After using WP7 V2 Theme for Spb Mob for 1 month, I decided to quit and be back to spb Mob 3.5.5 due to battery drain significantly when using wp7 theme. However, users of WP7 V2 Theme for Spb Mob know that this theme cannot be totally uninstalled. There are residues that cannot be removed and they keep stay in your machine. For example, you can still see some options of WP7 theme after uninstallation but of course those options are just phantom without any function and respond.

So, I decided to restore to spb mob that I backup before installing WP7 V2 theme. You know what? Yes, I could be back to spb mob but the machine turned to brick as well! The machine could not be switched off. I had to take out the battery so that I could perform hard reset.

So, please think carefully before testing this theme. You should backup all your information before installing this theme AND before uninstalling it. I did not do so and now I lost all information and I cannot restore anymore.

I would also like to suggest the author of this theme that:

1. Warning should be mentioned, esp statement that this theme cannot be totally uninstalled;
2. Try to make this software uninstall-able. At the moment, this software is overbearing.

I am surprised you requested for a warning before doing so! These themes and add-ons, are not being charged, they are free to try and they are made so that we can all use it! It says almost on every thread of this forum, that use it at your own risk. If I was to use anything I din't create, I will always assume that it's at my own risk - with a warning or without a warning. I have faced similar problem of themes not being removed completely and it's not just MSkip's theme but also the sense theme and espresso theme -- they stay in there harmless (at least virtually!). HD2 I thought had a better interface and was 'the phone'. I am surprised you wanted to add new stuffs on to make it's looks better Good luck mate, and hope your phone doesn't stay brick for long!

Question FB and Bing widgets

I second this MSkip. I loved the Facebook and Bing widgets before WM7 theme was installed. They worked absolutely fine with me. However, after installing WM7 , in my lifestyle hub, I found these links. I tried, but cannot input anything at all. When I try to press 'Update status' or 'Search' in FB or Bing respectively, I cannot do anything and the screen automatically goes to either 'People hub' or 'Shortcuts hub'. I ended up removing the widgets

Is there a fix for it? I have the latest version of SPB which had FB and Bing widgets fixed already. So without WM7 they work a charm, but with WM7, they don't work at all!

Any help will be cherry on top of the WM7 cake!

I have gone to every possible extreme to make sure that this theme IS totally uninstallable. Before the theme is uninstalled all relative registry entries are manually deleted and the original qa_layouts.dat file which holds all the information about screen layouts is copied back to the spb mobile shell folder. These are the things that prevented my older themes (but not this one) along with nearly every other mobile shell theme from being uninstalled properly. I have personally installed and uninstalled ProPlus WP7 on 3 different devices with 3 different resolutions hundreds of times to make sure everything is as safe as it can be. This theme has also been downloaded around 10,000 times so I can pretty confidently state that this theme is safe to use and uninstall.

Mark.

I have exhausted every avenue to try and work out why the twitter and facebook widgets dont work properly. Part of the cause is spb themselves as those widgets have never worked well on any release of mobile shell as far back as 3.0. Another possible cause is the creation of extra panels or hubs that are used for shortcuts, lifestyle, pictures, business and games hubs. The facebook and twitter widgets do seem to work ok on the Home Hub and therefore I am going to make wide skins for the home hub so they can at least be used on there.

Another possible solution as stated before is a fix by mtstmp. This is basically a driver from an older version of Mobile Shell. It has mixed results and may or may not work on your device but you can try it if you want.

Mark.
