    Hi Guys,

    I have been trawling around these forums for a long time, and firstly wanted to say thanks to all of those veterans around here passing on their knowledge - its guys like you that make this place work.

    I wanted to start an official screenshot thread - in part to compare, show off, and get ideas, but also in order to allow newer members to ask questions about certain home screen widgets, what does what, and how things can be made so pretty! It took me a long time and lots of research to get mine how it is, and it would be great if we can help others achieve this a little more easily.

    In particular, i want to thank Drakaz for his amazing work on Galaxo 1.6.3 - anyone who is using his firmware and has the means should seriously consider a small show of gratitude; he saved me oodles of cash by improving the galaxy to the point that when i was about to give up on it and buy a new phone i didnt have to as he make it usable.

    So without further ado, here is my overclocked Galaxo Samsung i7500; any q's at all, feel free to shoot :)

    Btw, one last thing - i just thought it would be interesting to note that uploading these screenshots has mate me realise how truly awesome the Galaxy OLED screen is. My PC has an excellent high resolution LED backlit screen, but has no where near the contrast or vibrancy of my galaxy screen. On my PC the background and general theme does not look anywhere near as good as it does on my phone.

    Im not 100% sure, but id suggest Frojd is using an app called 'better cut'. This app is available on the market allows you to create shortcuts on the homescreen with your own icons/icon packs from the market.

    All my icons are stock -widgets are;

    Beautiful Widgets - homscreen clock
    Pure Calender (adgenda) - Calender
    Pure Messenger - sms/twitter/facebook widgets
    Pure Music - music widget
    TFLN official/FML Official

    Hope that helps :)

    That's strange! To be honest, i havent tried it, i was just guessing at what he had been using. He did mention he had been doing some theming, so perhaps he is changing the stock icons?

    Do you by any change know what that volume control bar he is using is Rasta?

    Here is my background. I really like a clean screen and my main is just as you see it. My two other screens have my Touchdown and kids photos.

    I know this is an old thread, but I figured why not bring it back to life?

    Here are screenshots of my new GAOSP setup, from left to right:


    I'm using Launcher pro: the calendar widget and the SMS widget both came with it (although they are themed). The Weather/clock widget is from FancyWidgets pro. Here is the background:

    My version: [Hide][​IMG][/Hide]
    The original: [Hide][​IMG][/Hide]

    I had already posted that in the thread about Nightly builds, but I'm curious to see what your screens look like, so share if you feel like showing-off!

    Looks good D !! Really wish I had your theme talent. I'd love to replicate that for ADW.

    Here is mine. I plan on adding a supercircle battery later today.

    This is how my homescreen looks now, its the final setup.
    The notification bar is actually hidden, but it seems that the screenshot app caught a bit of it on picture. Btw, what screen capture apps do you use?

    I am using one from the market called screenshot.

    PS: If anyone wants the supercircle battery, you go here UOT Kitchen. Pickup. The file you want is It should be there until ~3:00am est. I haven't tried it yet ( am doing it now ). For reference, it is for the latest nightly only.

    Edit: It works just fine !
