Hi there,

I made a new skin for WM5 wait cursor. I was very bored of WM5 waiting cursor which is very ugly and "old fashioned".
After I tried a WM6 OS and noticed that it's really cool, I decided that also our WM5 world must have that wait cursor.

Take a look...

No, it isn't. The normal wait cursor for WM5 devices is this:

Nope, I took the original WM6 cursor from a WM6 ROM and replaced the resources to the file used by WM5 OS.

Although I have no use for this it is very nice that you took the time for those who are still on WM5.

hahah ouch, you say that as if we're lesser beings. well the only reason i haven't upgraded to wm6 is because, i don't really need it. i do like how its presentation is a bit slicker, but the other additional features of wm6 are just things that i don't often use. as i read somewhere on these forums, there's no need to upgrade unless i'm having problems with wm5. i'll wait 'til the kaiser for my fix of wm6

anyway, thanks, marshall, for this modification. one of those nice little things that you don't think about having, until you actually get it, and you realize how much nicer it is. thanks again, works perfectly for me.

If you point me to a WM 2003 ROM, I can try giving a look.

That was kinda of harsh! That is not what I meant.
Hey, I would not mind seeing some better WM6 cursors, actually.
Guess that just like anything once you have tried it for a while I would not mind trying something new.
