    No. I actually used UCCW widgets. 3 of them. Top, middle and bottom. they are overlapping. Took me friggen forever.

    Metro UI HD seems very easy. I will give that a shot but I am going to leave my set up for a while considering how long it took me lol.

    Do you have to root the device to do all sorts of snazzy stuff like some of you guys have done with your backgrounds/menus etc?

    The easiest start point I would suggest is the following:

    Launcher -

    Nova or similar gives you more home screen options, let's you customise icons and folders etc

    Desktop visualizer -

    Create widgets / icons with any image

    Icon packs -

    Search for icon packs in Google play to find icons that match a theme. Most can be used with a launcher to replace standard icons.

    Widgets -

    There are many widgets out there for instance, clocks, weather, text widgets, battery, and so on which can normally be customised to your theme colour etc. Search Google Play and see what you like.

    Obviously rooting does a whole lot more, but most of the stuff you see in this thread can be achieved with Launchers, Icons, Widgets, Desktop Visualizer and so on.

    Its Make Your Clock Widget (4x2). I got that from an already made design called PurplePower http://gallery.makeyourclock.com/Xa0/ ...and changed it around to what I have now. This can all be accessed through the widget itself on your phone!
