Remapping Contact Icon (next to Launcher)
Hi all, I have what I think is a simple task but can't seem to figure this out. I want to remap the existing Contact button (lower right, next to Launcher) from the Spb contacts to Iconsoft's PhoneEX contacts. I've downloaded Mskip's WidgetsProPlus Ultimate cab 070809 (cool widgets) following the threads that this can help me control the task bar icon, but now the Spb corner icons are missing in Lifestyle (left - Spb Carousel, right Edit Layout). I'd like these, and now I cannot launch the change lifestyle layout to add the Contact icon with the PhoneEx one (or any widgets).

Either I am missing something or cannot tie the parts together correctly. Can someone help?!

I promise to do a follow up post tommorow to explain it.
If you are interested, have Mortscript installed and put a copy of my Spb Themes folder(the sub folder SPB Themes) in the root directory of your storage card.

Easy method for changing themes
ALL resolutions
Required: Mortscript and some themes

I made a set of themes to use as an example for qvga users.
I will post mortscripts here to allow you to switch from one theme to another.

Instructions:
1. Download and unzip my Spb Themes and Mortscripts .
2. Place the Spb Themes folder in the root directory of your phones storage card.
3. Place the Mortscipts folder anywhere you want on your phone or storage card.
4. Use file explorer and open the Mortscripts folder.
5. Select a theme script and press/enter.

THAT'S ALL.
Wait for the theme to change. Be patient. On my Tilt it takes 20-25 seconds.

To avoid using file explorer in selecting a theme, MAKE SHORTCUTS.
I suggest putting shortcuts either in your "My Shortcuts" folder of your launcher page.
Or on page 7 of your Lifestyle layout. Or both.
================================================== ========
For non-qvga users. The method is the same. If you have themes that you are already
switching between, put them all in a folder labeled Spb Themes and follow step #2.

To explain how to create a theme changing mortscript, here is a script for me to demonstrate on.

Code:
XCopy ("\Storage Card\SPB Themes\FolderName\*.dat","\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell", TRUE )
run  ("\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell\MenuLauncher.exe","-stop")
Sleep (5000)
run  ("\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell\MenuLauncher.exe")
That's the entire script, all 4 lines of it.
It's basically the Spb resetter script. I believe I posted the script before toniolo.
You can check my posts from about a year ago.
Anyway, I added a line above the 3 lines of the resetter script. It's just a copy and paste command.
It's the only one that you'll need to edit.

To make you own Mortscripts:

1. Open notepad
2. Copy the script above and paste into notepad.
3. Replace FolderName with the folder name of your theme.
4. Save as, Folder name of your theme.
5. Now that you have a FolderName.txt, Change the file extension from .txt to .mscr
6. Now you have FolderName.mscr.

You have just written your mortscript. Put it on your phone and execute it. Wait for the theme to change.
Write a script for each theme.

You don't have to put entire themes into your folders.
You can put any .dat files into your folders. for example you can just use it to just change fondotela files
if you want to change only the backrounds. Or Fondecran.dats to have multiple backrounds etc...
================================================== ========
As a side note. Since this is just a simple copy, paste, and reset script this method can be used for any program. For example, I had a script that changed S2u2, Icontact, psShutxp,
windows media player, spbms. The entire phones theme changed with one press of a script.
If anyone knows how to get windows today screen to refresh/reset, please post it. I was able to copy and paste the .tsk
file, but never figured out how to have it refresh without having to go into the today screen settings.


See ya next time I get a chance to visit.

This upload includes the themes and mortscripts for my theme pack. QVGA only. You can add, delete, or alter it however you'd like. It was created as a starter or example pack.

I was able to install everything and everything worked perfectly. However, sounds and notifications were gone. I tried uninstall/re-installing the software. It still does not work. Should I do a hard reset or is there a workaround to this? Thank you..

Changed popup menus
Hallo everybody,
Till now, I used my Blackstone with shipped ROM (WM6.1). But now I tried cooked one, based on WM6.5. Everything seems to be alright except popup menus. I like original menus from WM6.5 themes, but after installing MS3 these menus changed for more finger-friendly, but not fine for me. For example:

WM6.5 theme HTC Black:
Without MS3 .................................................. .................................................. and with MS3


WM6.5 Theme Classic Blue:
Without MS3 .................................................. .................................................. and with MS3


Menus are changed only with active Mobile Shell 3. If I exit MS3 (but not uninstall) original menus are back. Is it possible to cause MS3 not to change original menus?

Sorry for my bad English...

Did you have those "with MS3" menus on your phone before installing the 6.5 ROM? I am wondering if MS3 is using those menus because it's supposed to be the default for your phone, but we need a little more info.

mskip.
Thank you very much. I have two questions though. When I go to add widget, if I go down to Internet and then fav's- the same generic widget pops up for all fav web sites. Is there a way to get the sites widget on there. Plus, I'm sure this has come up- but is there any way to add our own widgets to link up with apps like on some of those iphone for WM apps?
