    We had a similar thread like this in the EVO forum, so I figured I'd start one for the Photon people to share your screens with screenshots.

    - For those of you that don't know how to get screenshots, here's a great post by Bandage that has an app that allows you to get screenshots of your phone without rooting:
    Screen Grab
    - In order to install the apk from XDA on your phone, you MUST allow apps from "Unknown sources" to install. In order to do that, follow the steps in my post below:
    Step-by-step to allow for apk's to be installed that aren't from the market.
    - When posting screenshots, be sure to indicate apps/wallpapers/etc. that you're using on the screen that people are looking at (this will avoid people having to ask in the thread and keep it clean to just sharing screenshots and apps)
    - For those familiar with being able to edit pictures to use as wallpapers, the exact size for a wallpaper to fit perfectly is 1080 X 960.

    Apps being used
    - Lakers Live Wallpaper
    - Weather Forecast (no longer available)
    - Simi Clock Widget
    - Circle Battery Widget
    - Launcher Pro
    - Launcher Pro Plus Unlocker
    - Gmail App Label (OEM Android App)
    - Android Icons (I have to find the thread on XDA where I got those, but when I do, I'll edit this post)
    Main Homescreen

    Apps Being Used (not already linked above)
    - Launcher Pro Plus Clear Widget Pack
    Bookmarks Widget in Launcher Pro Plus w/ Clear Widget Icon pack for transparent widget backgrounds

    Apps Being Used (links provided for apps not already linked above)
    - PowerAmp Trial
    - PowerAmp Full Version Unlocker
    - Widgetsoid2.X
    - Motorola 4G scan and on/of widget toggles (trying to replace or wait until Widgetsoid supports all 4G phones, not just EVO).
    Toggle Screen for Wifi/Screen Brightness/GPS/Bluetooth, along with Music Screen for commute using PowerAmp

    Apps Being Used (not already mentioned above)
    - Widget Locker Lockscreen
    - Motorola Text Messaging widget (trying to find a transparent replacement for this, where it'll just display recent text messages on the lockscreen)
    - Pacman Unlocker from XDA XDA with Widgetlocker Themes
    - Circle Battery Widget
    - Widgetsoid2.X Clock Widget

    So you can use the moto widgets with launcher pro?

    I'm not sure if they're moto widgets or android widgets, but yes...the 4G toggles show up and work fine on my Launcher Pro Plus. I just think they're visually not very nice looking...LOL.

    I actually like their minimalistic appearance. I don't have a way of directly uploading my screen shots directly from my phone since I'm posting from it but I'll share them when I get a chance.

    I cannot get the app to install on my phone. I get an error message. Any suggestions??
    I've heard people say download to your computer & install from there but I don't have the USB cord with me. :(

    Doh...You reminded me of a step that I needed to add. In order to install the app from XDA, you have to allow for apps from "Unknown Sources" to be installed on your phone. To get there, very simple:

    On the Phone:
    Menu>Settings>Applications>Click Toggle Button for "Unknown Sources" and you'll get a warning prompt. Once you've installed, you can untoggle the selection. I usually keep mine open because I'm always paying attention to what I install on the phone.

    I would post mine but it's beyond boring...just the stock motoblur with a android themed wallpaper.

    My phone is already set to allow apps from Unknown Sources. I'm able to download the file but I get an error message when I try to open it.

    Are you opening directly after the download or from a file manager (either stock or secondary app)?
  11. Whiskeypawz

    Whiskeypawz Well-Known Member

    Directly from the download. Should I open from a file manager?

    **CORRECTION** I can't download the file. It tells me "Cannot download. The content is not supported on the phone."

    Man I completely forgot about this thread. Heres mine

    Heres the Home Screen

    Ive got the stock weather app. Wigetsoid 3G on off, a row of Moto toggles, FB, stock cam, HDR, G+, Youtube, Voicemail, Amazon app and then market Place. The Dock is Dialer, Dolphin Browser, Handcent, apps


    Google search, Calendar app for the day to day, Titanium system back up, 3 Email accounts, Digitally Imported- a god send when Im bored at work and its all electronic music. Gmail, Another Camera App, Camcorder, Words with friends, and the stock messaging app which makes it easy to respond to Facebook and other non important messaging.


    Now its Winamp, the world clock, Sprint Zone for checking on my account, accounts for checking the rest of the ones not on there, Maps, which should be changed to telenav, and lastly my gallery app.


    Lock Menu for a lock screen and all of my important/most used apps in one place.

    In the Status bar its batteryminder which is kinda useless since it jumps by tens when I need one that goes by single numbers in my bar, screen grabber, visidon app lock-an app that uses your front facing camera to recognize its you in front of the camera-great for letting friends use your phone but keeping sensitive apps still locked. Lookout, Extreme Alarm clock and lock menu-its status bar icon is invisible though

    This is a picture I took with this phone on my way back from visiting my grandparents home while my dad was racing down the road at 50+ mph. Im not religious at all but thought this was a really beautiful picture for this camera to take.

    With someone having posted the "exact" wallpaper size, I made a custom wallpaper and decided to take a horizontal screen shot this time:

    Using Fancy widgets and Elixer for the buttons and shortcuts. I used the Moto phone portal to get them to my computer. The screen catcher is cool. I had one like it on my last phone but it was rooted to use it. Phone portal is cool too.

    Try this again. See if I got the pics this time.
