Have a cool wallpaper? also post it, or a link, to save multiple requests.
How do I take screenshots? (Thanks Lekky)

You need to be rooted to take screenshots, using an app called shootme. If you don't want to root you can still do it, but its rather drawn out, guide here How To Capture Screenshots With Your Android Mobile Phone

LOL, I felt silly after reading that! But looked on my phone and couldn't find it. But I realised that I was being lazy and searched 'toggle' on the market.

Hold down on a homescreen, click widget, click settings. You then get a list of toggles (Airplane Mode, Bluetooth, GPS, Mobile Network and Wi-Fi).

The 'Power Control' widget is a good alternative, it has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync and Brightness controls.

Thanks for the link Lekky. I've followed all the steps and have got to running the DDMS.BAT file and the Dalvik Debug Monitor launcing. However, it's not showing my device, or any device, on the Debug Monitor. Do you happen to know what I've done wrong off the top of your head? I don't want to be a hassle.

The phone is connected via USB. I've tried it mounted as a disk drive and charge only but it doesn't show up under either condition.

The icons on screen main + 2 are these http://lab.iirojappinen.com/idroid/icons.zip

The others can be found in the market called:

-icon pack - ibox
-icon pack - ibox2
-icon pack - ibox3

They are applied using the File Organizer app.

Instead of sense i'm also using helixlauncher (on the market), lets you add those 4 tray icons along the bottom. But its not terribly stable, crashes quite a bit :/

Sorry for slight offtopicness here Lekky, but I too have considered these icons and icon packs. I didnt realise you need an app called File Organizer in order to apply them [I didnt really know how they were applied!].

However, do you need File Organizer ALWAYS running in the background in order for the icons to be maintained? i.e. if it was uninstalled after applying the icons, will the icons disappear too?

Also does anything at all need to run as an extra resource in the background in order to have these icons displaying other than default? i.e. I'd like changed icons but not by compromising memory utilisation.

Thanks!

p.s. I think its inevitable that a thread of this nature [e.g. post your PC/Mac desktop, HTC Homescreens] will bring questions about who's using what ....so its not compleeeetely offtopic.

p.p.s Really silly question here, I couldn't find a specific app called 'File Organizer' - did you mean just any file organiser? i.e. ASTRO? *EDIT* found it: http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.google.code.appsorganizer

Nope and nope, you can safely kill it.

Off topic again but I agree, I know I for one am only utilising Android by the smallest percentage of it's ability.

It's almost like some dark force withholding all it's secrets. Lekky's set up, while not to my tastes, really shows off what Android and the Desire is truly capable of.

There are guides here to some things but a website giving detailed info on how to produce results like that above would be really useful to lots of Android Noobs, myself included.

My homepages aren't anything special so just a quick post of them. Also, one of them has nothing on at the moment as I've been fiddling with them a bit so I haven't included it.

Love your wallpaper (can i have it pls ), but I've never been a big fan of the sense widgets.

Can i make some suggestions, i don't know if you prefer an agenda view of your appointments but 'android agenda widget' kinda has a sense theme going on:



and smooth calendar for the 1 line calendar widget as it allows multiple lines



Just in case you wanted to try them

The wallpaper is by a Japanese artist, Aya Kato: cheval noir
Ridiculously amazing artist!

They don't say on/off and they don't show red when turned off?

Any idea why they are different? ( And not as good looking)

Lekky, it prob would have saved a lot of thread space if you'd just given a breakdown of every app/widget on there in the first place.

New thread rule there?

@Lekky I have been trying to change icons the way you have them. Using the App manager program that was posted further up the thread I can set a custom icon that links to a category so it opens a window with some apps I can launch rather than just launching the app I want straight away.
Is that the way it works on yours?

*edit*

I can achieve what I want by changing the Shortcut settings within Helix.

Can I use ASTRO for the icons? or should it be Apps Organizer?

Actually app organizer only allows you to set folders, its twin app called folderorganizer adds on this by adding shortcuts, changing app icons etc.

Sorry its not called file organzer my mistake.

Ther are 2, appsorganizer and folderorganizer. The first just lets u create folders and is free, the second basically lets you do anything and is paid, but very cheap.

Haha ok, I guess the way I did it was the long way.

I created a category using Apps Organizer with my own icon. Added it to the shortcuts in Helix. Then configured helix and changed the shortcut manually to launch what I wanted rather than the Apps Organizer category. It kept the icon but launched a different app.

heh...

Very quick guide on how to customise app icons with folderorganiser:

open folder organizer >
shortcuts tab >
press menu >
new shortcut >
folder organizer item >
apps >
select an app >
now long press on the new shortcut >

If you are using an icon pack from the market select icon packs.
If you are using an image from your sdcard pick andexplorer


Now on your desktop:

long press >
select shortcut >
folderorganizer item >
shortcuts>
select the shortcut you created.
