there is the new 2.0.5 version of ShellExtension
. Version 2.0 adds support for extra Now-screens (hubs as you like)..
modifies the SPB mobile shell and extents it with extra features. It does its modification on the fly. There are no files that are overwritten. It changes the files inside.
So, in most cases it can change your modified SPB shell.

In detail; ShellExtension has the following options:
A lot of SPB Shell users who want to mod there shell has problems with extracting en compacting the qa_layouts.dat file.
it’s possible to extract all the files from the qa_layouts.dat Zip file to the Qa_layout folder in the SPB Shell programs folder.
And Compact files into the qa_layouts.dat from the ZipToDat folder.
(the folders are automatically generated by ShellExtension
it’s possible to make 6 extra Lifestyle ”lookalike” screens.
You can give each screen the name, shortcut icon, page count and menu bar you want.
also makes the new screen visible on the carousel and makes a shortcut to that screen in the tools section of the SPB menu.
And with ShellExtension
you can change the ‘contacts’ tab into a now-screen (more than one page).
you can change the menu bar of the now-screens.
You can make one menu bar for all the now-screens or you can change the menu bar for each now-screen separately.
You can put from 0 to 4 buttons on a menu bar.
The button can start functions made by SPB Shell like: -ToDay -Lifestyle Home, -Professional Home, the Now-screens you made, -Favorites Programs, -SPB Menu, -Launcher, -Task manager, -Wireless manager (not
in SPB version 3.5), -Weather, -Weather conditions (not in SPB version 3.0.1), -Agenda, -Time,
-Telephone Profile,-Profile, -Backlight,-Call logs, -Fav Contacts, -SPB Contacts and
You can Change the icon and name for each button. It’s also possible to remove the text per button.
Without the text, the button is correctly placed (lower) on the menu bar.
If 0 buttons is selected, ShellExtension
automatically removes the recycle bin and makes the screen larger (in landscape wider) So you can put widgets on that space.
Change the now-screens and tabs in the carousel.
You can add, remove or arrange the tiles. Or change the texts of the specified carousel screen.
supports the language supported by SPB Shell. It uses for 75% the translation of SPB Shell.
The extra text specific to ShellExtension
is placed in a separate zip file without password. It’s possible to change all the text of ShellExtension
to your choice.
ShellExtension is freeware, i.e., you don't need to pay for it. I strongly recommend that you only download from this site.
Except for the language module are modifications, in any way, not allowed.
Use ShellExtension on your own risk. I don't offer any warranty and I’m not responsible for damages caused by ShellExtension (I’m not perfect...). But in the worst case you have to reinstall SPB Mobile Shell…
First digit: major release (extra functionality is added, behavior of program is changed)
Second digit: Bug release (extra functionality can be added and if there are any bugs are fixed. In most cases the user manual will be updated, for the extra functionality)

How to Install:
Just copy the tree files from the downloaded zip file to a map on you device.
After that select ShellExtension...
