    I'll start.

    I only use 5 of the 7 screens. The far left and far right are empty.

    Unfortunately it's not a simple process.

    - Download the Android SDK here: Android SDK | Android Developers
    - Run 'SDK Setup.exe' and install the Android 1.5 package and USB driver package
    - In Windows Device Manager use the USB driver that was downloaded to install the USB driver in Windows
    - Make sure you have Java installed, and Java /bin/ directory is in your Windows PATH variable (In a command prompt type "java" and if it says unrecognized command you need to do this: Find your Java /bin directory, should be something like C:\Program Files\Java\jre.ver.number\bin\ and go to a cmd prompt and type: path C:\thatdirectoryhere)
    - Enable USB Debugging on your phone: Settings > Applications > Development
    - Run ddms.bat in the /tools/ directory of the Android SDK with your phone plugged in
    - Select your phone from the list on the top left of the window
    - Go to Device > Screen Capture to capture and save screen shots

    Most of those seem to be on the Droid. I'd like to see what Eris users have done with Sense UI.

    Looks like all the apps in the market either cost $$$ or require root. Too bad... I'm pretty proud of my layout, too. I'm not about to mess with that SDK crap. I'm sure it'd be even more of a pain in the ass to adapt that to Mac.

    screen #1: Bookmarks Widget
    screen #2: messages widget
    screen #3: Small fav people widget on left side, on upper right side photo frame widget and 4 program shortcuts.

    screen #4 (home): 4x1 Calendar widget at top, clock widget, and weather widget with shortcuts and toggle for mobile/wi-fi

    screen #5: 8 program shortcuts and 4x2 facebook widget on bottom.
    screen #6: a little photo frame widget with a pic of 2 very cute dogs.
    screen #7: Photo albums widget

    all with the smoking blue wallpaper that came with the Eris.
    Sorry, I couldn't upload the pictures..

    With all this open source shit, how hard can it be to code a simple program that let's you take screenshots?

    AFAIK something about the way Android works, you need root access to the phone to capture the screen. Screenshot apps exist, they just require root access.

    So that's just an assumption, but if it were possible without root, I'm sure apps would already exist.

    Great layout, if I might ask a question on screen two, the Bluetooth, GPS, WiFI. Mobile toggles - what is this.

    This is my wifes phone (shes not a forum person, me - love this stuff) but my playtime with her phone is fairly limited.

    Stock HTC widgets:

    Long press, or the right arrow key -> HTC Widgets -> Settings then they will be there.

    In some of the other layout threads I have seen this widget:


    Anyone know what widget it is? Or does it come with one of the home replacements?

    ^ Yeah, I like that widget as well. I usually see it on Droid phones though. I wonder if there's a download for it for Eris devices?

    How did you get the 4th screen to show up people? Is that a widget? Application? I would like to have something like that for my favorite people or common callers, etc.
