UPDATE: Sept 7, 2008

========================================

See post #2 and #3 for Ultimate WM7 v2

Post #2 - QVGA(240x320), WQVGA(240x400), and Square Screens

Post #3 - VGA(480x640) and WVGA(480x800)

========================================





There are four versions available for download below. They include:

1) WM7 Standard Analog - Analog clock on the Now screen, single Contact page and no MRU page.

2) WM7 Standard Digital - Same as above except has a digital clock on the Now screen.

3) WM7 Professional Analog - Analog clock on the Now screen cycles with a Calendar page, 3 Contacts pages, and MRU page that cycles with the Launcher page.

4) WM7 Professional Digital - I think you get the idea.



For those that may be new to SPB Mobile Shell, please follow these instructions after installing SPB Mobile Shell:

1) Download and unzip the layout below of your choice.

2) Install the font file in the "Fonts" folder to your device in Windows\Fonts

3) Install all files in the "SPB Mobile Shell" to your device in Program Files\SPB Mobile Shell

4) Soft reset your device and enjoy your new phone!


Note: When using with MS v2.1.1 or higher, the status icon hot spots are slightly up and to the right of the icon. I have not found a fix for this yet with these icons.



This version is for QVGA(240x320) screens and is optimized for portrait mode but also supports landscape mode. See posts #2 and #3 for v2 with other screen resolutions.

Ultimate WM7 v2
Ultimate WM7 v2 for QVGA(240x320), WQVGA(240x400), 240x240 and 320x320 Square Screens.

The screenshot below shows darker than it looks on my screen. The backlighting really brings it out.

Screen resolutions other than QVGA I am not able to fully test because I only have a QVGA phone so please report any bugs and I will try to fix them.

I have worked really hard on this. I hope you enjoy.

Ultimate WM7 VGA and WVGA
Ultimate WM7 v2 for VGA(480x640) and WVGA(480x800)

I have worked really hard on this. I hope you enjoy.

These skins are memory hogs due to the amount of graphics involved. I don't have a phone to try them out on so try them out and use them if you can. If they cause problems, look for future skins that won't be so memory hungry.

I owe many thanks to Heefy for providing me with the initial graphic design. Great work Heefy!

I would also like to thank greatbal and Luiggi whose previous layouts have provided me with a great template to learn how to create themes and to get this theme up and running.

Please feel free to do whatever you want with this theme and if you can improve on some of the graphics, such as the status and weather icons, please share your work.

I hope you enjoy using it as much as I have enjoyed making it.

More to come........

guys can you try not to quote everything including the screenshots? it eats a lot of huge space and pages of the thread

or at least edit the quoted message by deleting some parts of it, especially the screenshots.

Well done and thank you and bravo to you for sharing.

Thumbs up
nice theme! Thanks!

Font size of operator name in Today is little bit bigger than in Launcher and Contacts. Could be adjusted?

first opinions of the theme...

The contacts pages are labeled backward, if you sweep right to left, like turning pages in a book, they come out as page 1, 3, 2, and back to 1

I understand the appearance of the "title bar", but if the header and title bar were a bit thinner, you could get the 4th row of icons back on the launcher and dialer.

The icon on the the launcher panel for PROGRAMS... I like the icon itself, but I think something similar to the start button graphic would be more appropriate

I love the blueness... Diamond was getting mundane, but it just seems that things are there just for the sake of being there.

Of course, I am a much better critic than artist. This looks awesome and with a few refinements, I'm sure this will be up with the greats both functionally and visually
