You mean the 3 sided one where you can flip through?

You can't really have it as a today screen. You can however set it to display on wakeup so every time you turn on your phone it's there. And when you lock your phone it is also there.

This can be happen and after soft reset. Just edit the mobile shell's shortcut in the windows\startup folder with a file manager(I use total commander) and remove the "-noshow" option. If there is not exist an spb mobile shell shortcut, just create one from the executable.
The problem is that starts in launcher screen and not in Now, and I didn't find until now how to change this. Maybe there is a command line parameter but I don't know which is.

you cant. search through the millions of mobile shell 2.0 threads. the closest thing you can do is that reg hack, or go to mobile shell settings and set the now screen to appear on device wake up. it cant be set as your today screen.

There is a shortcut to the Now screen. If you look where you can assign buttons it allows you to choose the Now screen. I am not sure where it is as an exucatable.

You can go to the Now screen with the "\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell\Menulauncher.exe -now" command. You can assign it to a button, or a FTouchFlo gesture.

1.) Copy the "MobileShell.exe" application from \Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell, and
2.) create a shortcut "Shortcut to MobileShell.lnk" in \windows\StartUp, then
3.) Perform a Soft reset.
Now the Mobile Shell Spb Menu (Application) screen auto loads after the soft reset. No Reg edit required for this...

I have not seen or heard of a Now Screen edit as of yet but I'm sure one of these great Programmer / Chefs has one in the works... Have you seen what they are doing so far?

The above mention instructions does not replace the Today Screen but only bypasses it after a reset. If you close MS2.0 at any time, it will take you back to the Today Screen. As far as I know, you can not totally replace your Today Screen.

Good luck and keep on reading... The XDA Google search function can do wonders....

Thanks for this! With this I achieve to make the device starts in now screen after soft reset with the help of mortscript.
I made a shortcut with above command, and after I write this script:

Code:
run ("\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell\MobileShell.exe")
Sleep( 10000 )
Run ("\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell\MenuLauncher.lnk")
I put a shortcut of the script file in windows\startup folder and reset the device.

Now I have the now screen after every soft reset.

I modified the memwatcher sdk sample to launch spb now screen whenever user gets to today screen. Install the CAB file and every time when you return to today screen it'll quickly put you back at spb now screen.
