[APP] SGS Screen Changer
I've created an app that does what "socket84" was talking here on the forum ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=734151
), which basically is a way to change the default home screen when the user presses the Home button. This works with a hidden setting from TouchWiz. I posted it on Market with the name "SGS Screen Changer".
NOTE: You'll ROOT and BusyBox for the app to be able to do it's work.
I've only tested it with the European, Samsung Galaxy S so far.
I've tested with various different firmwares ( JM2, JG5, JM6, JM7 and JM8 ) and it's working ok. Also I've coded a backup mechanism in case things don't work as expected, and later you can restore the file to it's initial state, from the the restore button within the app, or manually by issuing the command "cp /system/default.propBackup /system/default.prop", but verify first that you have the backup file.
> Doesn't work on Froyo yet!
The configuration files have changed in those releases, and I've not fixed it yet.
Also, it would be great if people could post the contents of their "/system/default.prop" file in here, along with their firmware number, so I can fix it for different non functioning firmwares. Thanks
Let me know if you've any questions, and all feedback it's appreciated. Also remember this is the first public version, so don't expect it to look pretty, I've focused on functionality and correctness first.

* Fixed screen numbering as reported by Limality ( thanks
( 18-8-2010 ) : First release
Everyone who had installed the first beta should
update it from the Market and set the screen to whichever they want, even if the app did work to them before
. People who said it wasn't working, and the ones who said it didn't leave the 4th screen should update and select the screen they want and reboot. All those problems should be fixed in this release. I'll be waiting for further feedback on those ones to confirm if this solved their problems
