Cool New Bootscreen/GDE Launcher/Screenshots

Hi everyone!
I'm new here and this is a first...
I've been using GDE as a home replacement for some time now and i've decided to post some screenies to show off just how awesome this phone is!


My Main Screen (Screen 2)


Screen 3 (my shortcuts)


Screen 4 (calendar and player)


Screen 1 (toggles, photo gallery and search)


Screen previews (the last screen has my msgs so i didn't post that)


GDE Application Menu


My Games (open folder)


The awesome GDE Cube animation

(i'm using GDE Froyo Theme by goldenarmZ)

Post your screenies too and let's show off how cool this phone can be!

*edit
just cause you asked for it

Home Screen
feel free to ask!
i'll do the other screens soon!

*edit
and here they are...

Next Screens

*the icons used for the Desktop Visualizer widgets were inspired by this guy here...
iconpack is Minimum Icons and you can get it from here...
(I AM NOT THE MAKER OF THIS ICONPACK. IF YOU KNOW THE CREATOR OF THESE ICONS, LET ME KNOW, SO I CAN GIVE DUE CREDIT...)
Enjoy!

Hope to see X10 Mini Pro screenshots soon!

Just tried editing some bootscreens and i came up with this one...
tell me if you like and i'll upload it here with a tutorial.
(i know the ideas aren't original but it's worth it to adapt for our phone )

This thread over on the big X10 forum has been great and introduced me to some great apps so join in and share peeps.

I have included this link on how to do screen shots... a trick I only learnt myself last week (see you can teach an old dog new tricks!!)

Maybe they are a little nervous of the whole replacement launcher thing, if anyone is lurking and wondering... its really easy, you don't have to root your phone, its literally just downloading another app from the market! Honestly if this old broad can do it then anyone can!

I run ADW launcher and also use Home Switcher to give me easy access to switch between ADW and the two stock SE home apps you have on the big one. It was the addition of this last app that sealed the deal for me because I was worried about changing it, not liking it and not being able to get back to my SE screens.

If anyone is interested there is a similar thread on the X10 big forum to give you some ideas of what you could do.

The replacement doesnt need a rooted Android.
It binds your menu-button to the app and as far as i know, it closes the original homescreen on startup.

Its harmless

You don't have to be rooted to take screen shots cos I'm not but I did only find this out two weeks ago. The link provided above gives the details and is pretty straightforward.

Thank god for this!

My Mrs just got the Mini Pro today and the Sony Software is a nitemare and not exactly customisable compared to others.

This looks like a great Home replacement :-D

One thing I've noticed is Handcent doesnt have all the options on the Mini Pro as it does on my desire?

Is your Desire running 2.1 or 2.2 cos it maybe that the added functionality comes with the upgrade? We will be getting 2.1 soon (supposedly, fingers crossed, with a fair following wind and the stars being in the right alignment!) so maybe we will catch up with you.

2.2, but the options were there on 1.5 Hero before.

Gonna spend Saturday going through the Mini pro and adding ADW most likely and going from there.

T-Mobile UK say End of November for 2.1 update on Mini Pro. So slow!

My screens at the moment...
icons are custom-made and all were applied w Desktop Visualizer
on an ADW Mod...







@niteshneela
yup GDE's a paid app but i think you can google it...
for the previous screens, i used SMS Unread Count Widgets and a Post it Desk...both of which are available on the market...
cheers!
