File Name: WM5 for Smartphone Default Color Schemes

File Submitter: Ingvarr

File Submitted: 23 Apr 2006

File Updated: 6 Mar 2009

File Category: QVGA Computer

Different colour variation of standard WM5 for Smartphone background & color scheme.

Courtesy of Microsoft site presentations & fake device screenshots ;) Hovewer, these ones use higher-quality default WM5S wallpaper as source image.

These are color schemes, not home screens - so they are can be used with any other home screen you prefer (provided it have proper color scheming support in it).

Version 1.1 - Added Dark Grey, Violet and Pink

Version 1.0 - Available in Yellow, Green and Orange.

* take note that "wash-outs" on the animated screenshot is just after-effects of animated GIF - actual themes on smartphone have no these defects *

If you like these themes, feel free to show your gratitude by donating to author :P x-click-but21.gif

How do I install/activate the different color schemes, using the basic 'Windows Default' home screen?

Install this distro, then go to Settings | Home Screen

Here in "Color Scheme" choose "Default Orange", "Default Yellow" or "Default Green".

Great!

Any chance you could add grey and black color schemes as well? They are easier visible in bright conditions!

Thanks

You mean make TSK, for PDAs?

Themes for PDAs are made entirely differently...

This is great, thanks!

Do you think you could add Blue to the schemes? I understand that it's supposed to be the default colour scheme anyway but my Orange C600 doesn't have it.

These themse are great; I use the green one constantly. Would it be possible for someone to create a bluish-grey theme, or possibly navy blue? Maybe another color or two?

When I first got my SDA (music) I tried all the custom themes out there, but as I started using it more and more as a productivity tool, I don't think I could use anything other than the base home screen anymore, so new colors would be sweet.

Thanks.

Copy the file to your phone (I chose the windows directory), then navigate to it with your phone's file explorer and open (or install) it.

These are AWESOME. How about a blue/green/silver combo with stars and sequens? J/K, but how about Jet Black :rolleyes:

Apparently file base was changed sometime so it changed extension.

I've reuploaded it now - now it as it should be, of .HME extension (home screen package).

Just download it, copy it to the phone, and "run" via smartphone file manager - it will be installed.

This is a really cool theme set, but why doesn't it change the start menu background? That's still set as the cingular default blue, even when I set the background from Default to WM5S_Green. Thanks

Most likely Cingular have overriden the theme settings with their custom background. To make theme work, this registry setting (that specifies custom menu background) must be removed, unfortunately I dont remember its name :rolleyes:

Nice work Ingvarr, thank you very much...

Using the green background I can almost fool myself that I've a Mteor, not a lowly C600... Only mine is an app & sim-unlocked one that works correctly! :rolleyes:

Sp00k...

Since I know absolutely nothing about this, I would really appreciate if you could find out how to change that. I'm great with computer but just got this phone a week ago. How do you look at the phone's registry in the first place? Thanks for all your help,

-Peter
