Hmm ... I have had that happen before with skins on my c500, but only with the old e200 ones like silvertabs, or crafty's icandy.  I ended up figuring that the c500 homescreen engine is just a bit unreliable.

Sometimes if you leave the phone alone for long enough it will get past the startup screens, but if not it's hard reset time I'm afraid!  :D

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I think the problem arises when I edit the xml homepage, I dont really know the first thing about xml coding, I have just replaced the existing locations with my own, but if you have the time would you look at my ammended one.

Regards Stretchy

ps are there any issues with plugins being installed in different locations, ie phone storage and sd card?

Your xml looks fine. There shouldn't be any problems arise from editing & replacing xml, I do it about 50 times every day! :D
I always install plugins to the phone, never the storage card. I have never read/heard any problems arising from the location of them, but if you are installing them to the card, you could try uninstalling them & putting them all on the phone. Plugin are generally very small files anyway.

When I first got my c500, I was very disappointed to find that my themes for e200 caused the problem you described. But since changing the way I use the e200 plugin, I haven't had any more problems, and certainly none with the alpha theme.

Sorry I can't be of any more help - but as a last resort, you could try removing one of the plugins (if there's something you don't really use). I figured in the end that the problem comes from homescreens just having too much going on.

Thanks for all your help doctor, I've unfortunately had to settle for a modded default home screen. I feel the problem may have been associated with the shortcut plugin being directed to an app on the sd card but I can't say for certain.

If you had read the thread, you would see that there is only one cab file.

Am I doing something wrong, the home page doesn't fit my E200, it's all overlapped? Any suggestions? I tried the different styles within settings.

Are you sure you have installed all the necessary plugins?

Hi,

I love your homescreen however I can not configure it to work properly for me. I have US version of C500 with windows 2003. I downloaded and installed all the plugins, what I get is pink lines over the scrolling appt plugin and other plugins are misaligned. Unfortunately I don't know how to capture a screen shot. Any ideas?

OK - the pink lines is the limitation of the demo version of the scrolling appts plugin. To get rid of them you need to purchase the plugin. The other misaligned plugins will probably be due to not installing the necssary extra plugins, or using one of the xml files configured for Orange only phones (coz of the Oraneg specific plugin), so you're phone will probably only work with the 2002 version. Make sure you read the first post about what plugins to install, and check you are using the right xml. If none of that works then get back to me. ;)

Hope that helps, and glad you like it! :D

Somethings not right on my SPV C500, the Network/Battery meters and Network/Storage information are all in the center of the screen, and not in the lower part where the empty box is, plus the Calendar plug-in has pink bars running through it.

Looks promising though.

Hi, great skin BTW...been on my C500 for ages :-)
One little problem though; when the phone is restarted (or I manually close tmail.exe) then I use the sms shortcut on the homescreen, I get the error message 'Can't find "inbox" or one of it's components etc etc'

If tmail.exe is running, then the shortcut works fine...any ideas? I've checked the xml and can't see any refernces to the old 'messaging' reference which used to cause problems.

Cheers!
