Guys and gals, I see this is by far the most frequently read thread. This is why I ask you here to click http://www.petitiononline.com/xdadevs/petition.html and sign the petition.

Here follows the original article:

XDA-Developers (the most active Pocket PC Phone Edition forum) forum member hanmin has just made available a way to skin your Pocket PC to, Today screen-wise, look exactly like an Apple iPhone.

You may also want to read the subsequent posts in the thread (starting with the 8th page; I especially recommend this).

Note that you MUST have a forum account in there to be able to access the attached files! Registering is very easy - just click this link and create a forum account.

Go get it as soon as possible (before Apple chimes in) :)

Way cool idea, though!:cool:

iPhone skins

This is probably a very dumb question, but how do you install claunch skins after you unzip them? After unzipping iPhone for example, there are 12 bitmap icons; iPhoneAlarm has a folder with some more bitmap icons, and a .skn file?! How does one proceed from there? I tried to drag these files to my pocketpc (under ActiveSync) but that did not worK?!

Also in a similar context, can I install theme files (.tsk) in the MY DOCUMENTS folder in the SD card? and not in RAM? I just did this, but when I look at my x50v under Settings>Today I only see what came with the axim (Dell Default, Guava Bubbles and Windows Default)! I cannot see my other .tsk files that are in My Documents BUT in the SD card! Did I do something wrong? Isn't it better to have the .tsk files not in RAM to save space? and is there anything that would automatically rotate through the .tsk files, like a screensaver?

Thanks for any advice/suggestions,

CP

Delete (I think this is right) the init.ink from StartUp in the Windows folder.

I also have the problem with the PhoneAlarm background.

My current iphone skin, only about 50% done (XV6700) Using Wisbar Advance and Desktop


Software Attached
SMS Screen:
Picture Dialer from Treo attached to Palm Threaded SMS
MAPS:
Microsoft Streets Pocket Edition
Weather:
SBSH Pocket Weather, taking up whole screen with Time fade at the top

Stocks: Opera opening to NASDAQ

Camera:
Built in camera software

Calc:
Skinned black stock calc

iPod: pPod

I'm going to redo and upload the Calendar and Clock icons so they can be used for %Date% and clock face within the clock icon, and that leads to a plain screen with just the clock bar... As I get to see more of the iphone gui, I can make changes as needed

iPhone without the Phone Alarm Plugin

I made my iPhone screen without the Phone Alarm plugin, since it looked to be a duplication of icons already on the screen.

However, I did change one thing -- instead of 32x32 icons, I resized them to 48x48 in order to take up more of the screen's real estate.

Then, to complete the skinning, I added Wisbar's Windows Vista Portable Edition Skin from the Lakeridge forums.

This is what I ended up with:

Two questions:
1) i've installed cLaunch, icons and iphone.skn
All runs ok except iphone.skn that even if i select it through cLaunch it isn't shown in the background skin, why ?
I've to change the extension or what ?
2) the 4 icons on the bottom side are only pics without shortcuts to the programs, isn't it ? othrwise how to make them runnable ?
Thanks
