    So let's see what you did with your new snazzy Droid Incredible 2. To do this though, you will need to be able to take screenshots of your phone. To do this, you will have to do a couple of things first.

    First, download the usb drivers from here (if you don't already have them):Vista_x86.zip - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

    Second, follow this simple guide: How to take screenshots on the HTC DROID Incredible 2 - Know Your Cell

    Now you should be all set!

    Make sure to add whatever widgets/apps/roms(if you're rooted) to help those who want to make their phone look as snazzy as yours.

    I'll start:
    I'm using LauncherPro+ and homeswitcher for froyo, no root

    Lock Screen

    Widget Locker
    Battstatt
    [​IMG]

    Home Screen
    Battstatt
    Simi Clock
    Beautiful Weather 1x1
    [​IMG]

    Right Screen
    Jorte 3x3
    Facebook
    SMS Unread Count for the caller and SMS
    SwitchPro Widget
    [​IMG]

    Left Screen
    Basic Music Widget
    Assorted apps
    [​IMG]

    It's an option in Launcherpro ... The same thing can be done with Desktop Visualizer, search for it in the market (I can't post a link, I am on my phone)

    I'm in a simplified mood these days so...

    Homescreen:

    SiMi widget
    Phone
    Dock (Handcent, Gmail, Drawer,Web,Maps)
    [​IMG]

    Left Screen:

    PowerAmp
    Pandora
    Couple rows of apps
    Widgitsoid Switcher
    [​IMG]

    Right Screen:

    Pure Grid Calendar Widget
    [​IMG]

    I'm sure I will have a new setup in a week or so, but I have lost the desire for the moment to spend much time on it. Hence the simple look.

    BTW if you do have root, you can just DL "shootme" from the market to get super easy screenies.

    What are you using to change the Dock buttons/colors? I went with the all red layout you have but can't figure out how to change the dock buttons. I also haven't figured out how to hide the notification bar.

    If You're using LauncherPro all you have to do is long press the items on the dock and you will be able to change them. As far as hiding the notification bar (for LauncherPro again) hit menu, tap preferences, go to appearance settings, and then check hide notification bar.

    I used a combination of icon packs and the above mentioned method to get the different icons on the dock.

    If anyone knows how to change colors on the drawer buttton or Pandora's widget, please share!

    You can always create a custom button using photoshop. I did that on my old Incredible 1.

    Looks good! I like the lockscreen.
    What are you running for theme/ROM/Launcher?
    What is that clock widget?

    It's part of the rom I'm running, currently running MIUI, heavily themed lol...

    I cant access them via the app either and I attached the damn things :thinking:

    ROM (includes launcher) & Lockscreen: Running the latest and greatest of MIUI.us, the lockscreen is a themed lockscreen put out by Nuwan32 I believe.

    Theme: bits and pieces pulled from various themes utilizing the MIUI theme manager: got parts of Hive, Neon BT, Naked simplicity, and the dialer is from EliteProHD.

    The clock is just Minimalistic Text, with a text hour, static text semicolon, numbers for the minute digits, and text for am/pm. I also have minimalistic text pulling across weather and for my battery bar as well. great free app with tons of customization features if you take the time to play with it.

    yeah, i dunno, it may be an app bug, I cant pull them either and I attached them.

    open the folder by clicking on it and in the upper left hand corner of the box you'll see an icon that looks like a window with a pen, click that icon, Modify folder title to change the name of the folder and then also are various sort functions for the folders as well.

    is they are slightly less complex screen shot app (paid would be fine) that does not require root permission? I think i have a nice design, but am not going to go through the previously posted instructions.

    just wondering, thanks.
