    So many people may be reading this, wondering just what its all about, well, here goes.

    As of probably August/September i was new in here, with no idea what to do with the X10 - through the X10 community - nay FAMILY - on this forum, i have developed from someone using basic stock icons, to well, a fully custom layout

    HUGE HUGE thanks go out to X10iUser for the guidance in getting my phone here and the late night tutorial tonight lol

    and to everyone else in this forum with their thoughts and ideas - whether its on what widget looks nice, or what background - keep them going, cos they bring us to the end results we dream of (well it has done mine lol)

    So thats where i came to - i've modded the HTC Keyboard - which CuBz does an awesome job on explaining how to install here http://androidforums.com/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10/195479-how-install-htc-keyboard-step-step.html

    and then modded with the guide from GIMPSTA at XDA here http://www.gimpsta.com/themer/main.php

    the homescreens were taken from advice on widgets and apps in here http://androidforums.com/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10/149788-show-us-your-x10-homescreen.html

    and the fonts from here http://androidforums.com/android-themes/196814-android-fonts.html

    I have imaged a few different screens from my setup here http://androidforums.com/1774631-post41.html

    So to close it off - if you feel stupid (trust me, i did), confused or just curious about something, ask the question - after asking the question you have some idea's then share them - after you've shared them and you want to progress further - then i'm sure someone can help

    Look where i took mine to from its simple beginnings in a few weeks

    Huge thankyou to all of you

    And if i haven't laid credit where credit is due then please, let me know and i will reference and update it.

    Now sod it, its 4am - i'm off to bed
