On a side note, I started checking out the beautiful homes thread under applications section HERE and I am very impressed. But from my understanding, beautiful homes will not be accessible by us until we get the 2.1 upgrade. Is that correct?
Ok, here is mines. Im currently using Sweeter Home Beta 2, and I plan to use all of the other ones to see which one I like more, (besides SH 2 expires 2.10.10, lol)
My setup is like in a (plus) "+" sign. So this is the top part of the screen.
Left, Center, Right
Left side expanded:
As you see, I GOT ALOT OF WORK CUT OUT FOR MYSELF!!
Oh, the fellow in the background is, yours truly, PSYB0RG!!!! Any body have some spare VISINE??
@PSYB0RG: Cool setup! Sweeter Home looks very nice! Once you get everthing set up, I would definitely find a way to back it all up.
What is a kumpta?
I'm afraid that may actually mean computer, man that hurts to read. Thanks for the screens though, I've been playing around with home replacements and it helps to see stuff like that.
Lol, yea, that kumpta means computer, lol. She is very smart, intelligent, and she is FINE AS HELL!! She almost got Alicia Keys beat, I'd have to struggle with making a choice, lol.
But she doesnt take txt msgs serious and spell anything however she wants
Back on topic now. Actually, I now have a few home replacements running at once. Im trying to figure out which one Im going to end up sticking with PERMANENTLY.
Im using an app called Home Switcher to switch back and forth between Homes. Im currently running, DxTop, GDE, Open home, and Sweeter Home.
So far, I've noticed there isnt really any lag on DxTop or GDE. Due to Sweeterhome 2 being beta, it still do lags after u launch a single app. hopefully they have this worked out.
when I have time to get everything situated, I will take some vids with my camcorder and load them here as well. Stay tuned!
PS. I take it nobody has any spare visine!!
I've got a small bottle of it, but I think you are going to need more than just that
So why do you use a home switcher app to swith back and forth between homes? I thought that you could just not accept the home replacement app as default, and when you press the home button it will ask you which one to use.
As with everything... subject to change at a "Moment"s notice
You are correct. But I use the home switcher because I havent decided upon which will be my home yet. Thats why I have all of them running, not because I want 20+ screens, but because Im trying to figure out which one I like most, so that I can eliminate the others.
At first, I did think about running all of them, and having a certain home for a certain day, but thinking of the resources that would drain, I changed my mind, besides, the moment (even with custom kernels) have enough problems already, So, I decided its best to keep things really simple
no applications, no home switchers.. this is just android running
All it is is a deoxed frame and a modified launcher.apk
Very nice. If I weren't addicted to the app drawer Id be all over that.
Please post what you're using...helps everyone else out.
open home with a weather flip clock and S2 calendar widget. the wallpaper is a pic of a piece of perforated leather i found on google image. nothing fancy
lookin good there numus, lookin good!!!!!
Well its a work in progress. I'm modifiying it from the frameworkres i picked up at samsungmomentforum.com.
(This is a custom bootscreen im working on for zefie =D)
Heres another boot screen image
Another UPDATE: Lol... Any ideas people?
(Gave the sword a more metallic look & Adjusted lightning blend!)
Ok last update for now:
Gave blood a more stained looked than looney tunes!
I love your set up! Could you tell me what apps are you running for this set up if you don't mind telling me? I've had my phone for 3 weeks and I've been hesitant because people have said about their phones slowing down, blacking out...etc. Is there any special way or format downloading your set up that even I can do it?
Update: Correct size 320x 480 so you can wallpaper it if you like.
IOWA, are you using the Sprint CL14 update or Zefie's with root capabilities?
No problem, glad you like it
Here's what I have as far as the looks
From the market:
-Beautiful Widgets (for the weather clock, choose "beautiful home" from the widget menu)
-BetterCut (for changing the names and icons of the apps on the home screens)
-Open Home Skin MyX5 (for the launcher)
-Open Home Full (go ahead and mess around in the options. Persist mode seems to work well to keep the home screen working well but it will cause other apps, especially games, to slow down. I'm using 5 screens but you can enable however many screen you like)
As for the background, use google image search for "flame-jpg"
I think that's about everything... OH, get screebl if you don't have it already.
just started editing things - manual launcher file edits (rooted).
Awesome! Love the R2D2 launcher Why does he have a red light on in one pic, but not the other?
Thanks. One pic is when its normal, one when highlighted/clicked, and one when trashing things.
thanks, I will let you know how i did? If when I do this? Are any of these apps free? Also would i need to invalidate any apps from the phone or that won't matter? And another will I lose this set up when 2.1 update comes out? And what is screebl? Thanks for all your support!!!
Yeah, keep us updated on how it goes.
-Open Home has/had a free version (not sure if they still do, and I'm not sure what the limitations are on the free version)
-I'm not sure what you mean by "invalidate any apps." You should be good with whatever you are running.
-When 2.1 comes out your phone will be reset back to blank slate. However the background will be saved to your SD card, so you will still have it to apply. Also, Beautiful Widgets and the X5 launcher will be saved in your market and you will just be able to easily download them again (as well as open home if you get the paid version).
-Screebl also has a free version. It is an app that controls the screen timeout by determining the position of your phone. So if you have the phone in your hands, the screen will not blank out.
No problem, hope you get it just how you like it.
Hey critical, you've been an awesome support! thanks!!! I will try it sometime today when the wife is out and about? I think i will purchase them to get most benifit? My phone is stock that shouldn't be a problem right? Meaning is not rooted? Also i seem to get some really bad internet lag. So wasn't sure is this will make it worse? Thanks!
