nevermind my earlier question, I decided to drop the mru and go with layout C instead. I would like to note, however, that after installing SPB MS and this theme, my phone no longer drains its battery as fast as it used to. I'm not sure exactly what was changed, but I'm by no means complaining.

I cant seem to understand how to understand this, can anyone give me a little more detailed guide? Im not dumb with either computer or my mobile, I just didnt do anything like this before - so just a little more detailed please :)


I tried to install into the Layout-folder first, didnt work.
Then I pasted to the root of the Spd Mobile Shell folder and overwrote existing files. This changed the theme in some way, but it was all fck'd up. Things were laying on each other, sizes wasnt right and stuff like that. Also it was only the Spd Mobile Shell menu which was changed, as I see to this theme it seems that the original TouchFlo3D should change theme?
And yes, in all these cases I remembered to soft reset.

Also I couldnt see the themes if I went to "settings -> spd mobile shell" to change theme. I was only able to sellect 'professional' and 'classical'.


Thank you


EDIT: I only tried with files from the 'Layout A' if that should do any difference?
I want it to look like this with analog clock :)

First of all, many thanks to the amazing work of greatbal. This theme is all his work, I only take credit for converting his wonderful work to VGA.

This was pretty challenging for me, especially since I don't have a VGA phone. I have tested this on my computer using an emulator, I hope it works on your phone.

This version is Layout C with 3 contacts pages. It was made to work on VGA(480x640) screens.



Download Diamond for SPB Mobile Shell Layout C-3 Contacts-VGA here.
Sorry, would not upload here.

Could some brave soul try out this cab file? It's my first cab and I'd like to know if it installs correctly.


I tried this, and it works brilliant. Just there is one problem, I find the quality of it quite damaged. It seems like lower bit or something like it.

Could any more professional work on a cab file for this theme (look a few posts above this for how I want it to look) for a novice please?

Using HTC Touch Diamond with SPB 2.1

I hope it isnt too great a job to do.


Thanks in advance

I'm using pocket windows mobile classic. Is there a way I can combine the programs and MRU shortcut to the home screen. I have no need for email, text message, and call icon.

Thanks

I have tried installing many different theme files, one at a time on new installations because of what happens. Basically I copy the files into the root Spb Mobile Shell directory, soft reset and then once it boots back I cant open the spb menu. Every time I try to click on the soft key on the bottom right it does nothing. I try to go into the settings for different parts of spb mobile shell and it just gives me a black screen. I can see the screen is on because I can see the backlight. I then have to restart the device, omnia 910, because I cant do anything else. Driving me crazy because I really like the mobile shell but I dont like the default look of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have version 2.1.5.

GreatBal, love your Mobile Shell themes. I used to use the GSmart themes you made, back when I had the regular HTC Touch. Now that I have a Treo Pro, is there any plans for you to make 320x320 sized for the Treo Pro? PM me is so please...thanks.

Hi.
I did not read all the thread, bur it seems to me that the "X" close button on the right bottom of the original mobile shell screen disappeared, on the modded skins. Is that so? How can we close spb mobile shell when we need a little more memory?
My P535 has only 31Mb available and, most of the times, I need at least 28/29Mb free.
Thanks

VGA

Hi all

Does somebody work on a VGA version of greatbal's GSmart themes? This is the best skin for Spb MS (for me) I like it so much coz it is easy and have all what we need and not more! Can I hope for this skin for my Touch Diamond?

Maybe somebody knows more about it.. I hope!

Is there any way to replace the 2 Contacts pages out of 3 and place a page with something like 'Favourites Program' and in the other page, a tab to open 'Media Player' or something like that?

Thanks

    I just downloaded v2.1 and it's doing the same thing v2.0 was doing to me. The aligning is off when I click on something. Can anyone tell me how to fix?

    And can I get the fire background from v1.2 on this?

    Get back to me ASAP please. I'm getting muy frustrated.

    Thanks!!

    Oh, and just an FYI... on v2.1 when you're changing the color scheme.. you can't go BACK.. you can only to MORE (colors)

    If you are using Mobile Shell ver 2.1.1 (the newest version) that is probably what is wrong. A lot of people are having problems with this skin and the newest version of Mobile Shell. We are trying to work with SPB to find out what is wrong. In the mean time, I would suggest installing Mobile Shell version 2.1.0 which can be found as a link in this thread or I am told you can find it on the SPB website under previous versions.

    As far as other backgrounds, some new ones have been posted in this thread that offer landscape support for Diamond v2.1, although I don't know if the one you are requesting is included or not.

    I see that these are your first 2 post to XDA so I'll be gentle. When you find something on XDA that you like and want to use, please take the time to read the entire thread where you found it. This problem has been reported several times in this thread already. I know it can take a lot of time to read some of these posts, but you might be surprised at what you can learn and your questions may already be answered.

    I hope this helps and you get it working properly, it's a great skin for a great program., and WELCOME to XDA!
