    I noticed other device specific threads for posting your desktop and was wondering if we should start one here. I don't have a mytouch yet, but would love to see how people have customized theirs already.

    how about Launcher Pro?
  5. I like things really tidy. But I love your picture! I'm not using the task thingie right now...have about 5 different ones downloaded just can't decide what I like best. I like how yours is right there on the screen.

    Anyway, here's my home page.


    And one page to the left are all my apps in folders:


    And one page to the right is my task bar, camcorder, and gallery. Nothing else yet. I like all the apps being in folders. I just got my phone last week so still seeing what I use the most. So far it's the items on the front page.

    Rather than take actual pictures of your phone, there is a way to just take screen shots off your phone. The instructions can be found here.

    Also, I know on other threads people list the launcher (if you're not running stock) and the widgets/apps they're using. Just a thought...

    I used shootme.apk (have to be rooted to use)

    Here we roll.



    This is exactly how it looks. I did block a few things for privacy. :p

    Not too excited about the home screen im still working on that one. BTW its a live wallpaper and the lock screen is the tree thing.

    Kinda sad that the only way to get a screen shot on a non-rooted phone is to take a pic of the whole phone with another camera.

    brinky: see my comment a few replies above. You don't have to be rooted to take screen shots. Just takes few extra steps.

    I stand by my post. Why do i need to hook my phone up to a computer just to get a screen capture? Why in the world would google make it so hard to get a screen shot?

    But thanks for providing a non-root solution.

    Ok, I just wanted to clarify your comment. I agree about Google making things more difficult then they need to be.
  13. When I read the instructions it sounded like the whole process would take longer than just shooting a couple pictures with my camera.

    ANd I agree. A screenshot should be easy!

    I followed a link here on the forum to root it in less than 3 min, it can't be easier than that :) it's called something like Temp Root, but after that, I can enjoy rooted features Here are my screenshots captured using ShootMe App:


    Actually the process of posting the pix on the forum takes a lot longer :)

    Which one did you follow? My guide?

    Yea the process of adding the image to the forums takes longer then actually doing the root/shootme process.

    @wuzzy: what theme are you using to get that? Looks sweet. How does the rest look? (inside)

    I agree that it looks sweet... I found a utility that makes mine looks as sweet as that... called WidgetLocker:


    if Tinypic was blocked from your work (like mine) here's from twitpic, click on the link below :)

    Actually you DON'T need root to take a snap shot of your home screen just download an app that doesn;t require it I know there are some as when I had my bh2 months ago before I lost it I was able to do it without root using an app I think it was called shootme.

    Shootme does require root

    not entirely true, yes it STATES root is required but a few devices work without it. when i had my slide it worked until tmobile sent out a update to patch it up
