This theme will not work with the mpx200, causes the system to crash and freeze.

Description ::
FEATURES
Just a bit of a collage of Mac OsX backgrounds & icons etc gleaned from the web, and resized for smartphones, with a bit of mac style shadowing on some of the text!!  8)
2 xml versions will install with the CAB file, both use the same layout, but version B has the default calendar plugin, while the main version uses the scrolling appointments plugin by sullivanpt (available HERE).  Also uses RJshortcuts plugin (available HERE), DrFonz's smartmonitor plugin (available HERE), Oxios tasks plugin (available HERE), and the media player plugin (available HERE).

This version is currently for C500/e200 only, as it uses the e200 Orange plugin quite extensively for the side scrolling shortcut tabs in the middle, and the weblinks.

I have attatched an Xbar skin to match the theme, and I'm currently working on an SMS-Notify skin too, which I'll add once I get it sorted!

I think thats it really - as usual just install all the necessary <a href=http://www.modaco.com/viewtopic.php?t=714><a href=http://www.modaco.com/viewtopic.php?t=714>plugins</a></a>, then install the CAB file, and it should be fine.

Enjoy!  ;)

** EDIT: I have released a version of this theme for non-orange phones/2002 devices.  The CAB file is in the 1st post of the discussion thread!  ;)

Hello IridiumX, and welcome to modaco! :D

It certainly would be possible to move the time display, however, it would probably involve quite alot of reorganising of the rest of the screen, which would also mean moving the graphics around. That could become a big job.

I use notepad to edit xml. Have a search through some of the posts on the forum about xml editing & homescreens. If it interests you then the best way to start is to simply begin rearranging another homescreen, and you're welcome to do whatever you like to any of mine! ;)

thanks dude! i did some minor adjustment. :D i got a very long carrarier name. therefore the top looks way to weird with everything up there. But i did alot of try and error. i.e. editted in notepad, transfer to phone, then change to another theme before switching back. else i cant see the new changes. My question is, is there a simplier way to see the changes?

tried installing the home screen designer. but it did not respond half way through the installation.

Nope. There's no other way of refreshing the homescreen except to change it to somehting else, then back again. Someone a long time ago made a RAPI config app which refreshed the homescreen, but I never used it myself. If you dig around the forums you might find it, but I just stick with changing screens.
What operator are you on? I can't think of any settings to change the operator name, but there is a tweak in the tweak of the week section.

Take a look at the xml, it's just text fields repeated a pixel or two apart! ;)

Just wanted to throw some feedback your way ;)
My first homescreen on my first smartphone..what a doozie to try and install blindly!

Using MPX220, seemed to get everything working, re set up the shortcut links to what I wanted, got everything working although the apps kept saying couldn't locate papyus...even though I downloaded and installed all the needed plug ins.
not to worry, I used Home screen B and have the regular app page.

LOVE the windows media player part.

a few questions -

Is it possible to change E Mail note to MMs as I am more likely to get MMS's?
and...If I miss a call I get no notification of this, is there any way I can install a missed calls screen? like I said, first timer so sorry if these are retarded questions.

Other than that no probs, actually registered just for this set up, but it was orange only back then. thanks so much for the newer version!!!

EXCELLENT JOB.

Glad you like it! ;)

I don't know if there is an MMS counter plugin available? If there is I'm sure it could be implemented. For missed calls you could take a full screen missed calls plugin, but you would have to create an image to go with it, and then copy the code into your xml. But if you want to have a go then just take the code from a theme that has a missed calls screen & add it to this one. If you need any help let me know.
