Default Post your homescreen(s) thread!

Anyone interested in posting their homescreens? Okay, I know I should go first but I can't actually upload mine at the moment! I'll try and do it tomorrow.

We could also put links to widgets and live wallpapers that work well on our phones.

This site has a few great ideas http://mycolorscreen.com/?os=android

Main homescreen first, then a scrollable RSS news widget and the third screen is a calendar and some toggle widgets. The black box on the first screen is my location.

This is the live wallpaper https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.maxelus.colorslivewallpaper I usually have blue/green colours but went a bit mad and went red/pink/orange.

What's going on here then? I've added my homescreen and also edited the thread title, but when I look at it when I'm not logged in it's got the old title and my homescreen post is missing. Strange...

Just block out the unmentionables and post away! It can't be that bad can it?

On a sidenote I love how I'm the only screenshot on Jelly Bean so far.

Trying out the Turkish MH1 firmware and so far it's the best I've used.

Smokey is that X-Tools you've used for the status bar? I might give Xposed a go this week. Sounds easy to use. Do you backup with Nandroid? Or just reflash a ROM if something goes wrong?

@thorahird,
Xposed framework is easy and fun to use.
I use Xblast tools for the status bar and Battery themer v1 for loads of battery options.

When and if things go wrong,
I prefer to reflash the firmware again instead of backing It up.
Is clean and healthier.
Google backs up all the contacts and apps anyway.

Whoops, I meant X-Blast not X-Tools! Thanks, I'll probably give it a go and then post my homescreen up.

Also, does it affect performance? There's a couple of comments on XDA saying it gets a bit laggy, but that might be from having too many modules installed. Just wondered what with you having the same device.

I think it only affects performance if there are some conflicting settings in different modules. But I never noticed any problems with the modules I use.

Forgot about this. Running stock 4.1.2 and Xposed Framework (made the status bar solid black to blend in with the background and changed battery icon).

I only have one homescreen these days and Zooper widget is my only widget, showing weather, time, calendar etc. Clicking the time goes to clock/alarm app, clicking weather opens weather app and clicking calendar/agenda opens calendar. Blanked out bits are location and upcoming events. Icons are Tiny White Icon pack available on Play Store or XDA.



Strange, that banding of the gradient isn't visible on the phone, it's just asmooth gradient.

What's the calendar widget you're using there j800r?

ALso, is that Ad BLock Plus you're running? Have you tried AdAway? I tried ABP but I think an app runs in the background all the time, with AdAway it just alters your hosts file. It works great - blocks ads on the internet and in apps without running in the background (although I ususally buy ad-free versions anyway).

Pure Grid Calendar. Comes at a price but def worth it. I'm also using a custom theme now which changes things up a little.

I was using ABP but removed it cause it occasionally interfered with network connection. Not really fussed about an alternative for now.

Activating rotation on the home screen makes the phone more pleasant to use.


I strongly advise anyone that uses the (voice talk svoice) to disable it and install this app instead.
