About This File
Here is a theme based on the boot splash screen for Windows Mobile 6.1 and a matching HTC Home-like plug-in for Windows Mobile Pocket PC 2003 Second Edition devices only! Note that this looks like the HTC Home plugin for WM6 devices, but it is not - clicking on the lower tabs merely changes the launcher and does not give you favourites, weather etc. Furthermore, screen rotation, while supported, is not stretched across the full width for these plugins. Please click on the screenshot above to see what I mean.
It is made up of the following freeware plug-ins which you will need to install first. They may be downloaded elsewhere:
1) Nakka tdClock
2) rlToday (for optional missed call alert plug-in)
3) cai systems cLaunch
To skin the task bars you will also need
4) WisBar Advance v2.x
The rar file contains:
1) Blue 6.1 tsk file
2) Wisbar Advance v2.x Windows Mobile 6 Blue skin
3) tdClock HTC Home skin (for clock)
4) rlToday skin (for missed call alert)
5) cLaunch skin (for launcher)
Unrar the archive, then:
