Very much of a newbie to the Samsung Blackbird - bought it 3 days ago.

I'm have customized 2 home screens - renamed the files (as per the pinned instructions somewhere on here!, great by the way)
When I go to my Home Screen choices, my new screens are not there.

Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong?

1) It's called a Blackjack...not a blackbird
2) You have an error in your xml...that's why it's not showing up. Post the xml here and we'll look at it. Also note what you are trying to do.

Thanks for the correction. :rolleyes: - Blackjack, I meant!

Anyway, there isn't an error that I'm receiving.

I'm tyring to customize my Home Screen Page to include various plugins.

I have copied a xml file from my phone to my pc and made all my edits using Notepad (from a previous post here on how to make a customized home screen).

I copy it back to my phone in the \Windows directory.

Hot Sync

And the new Home Screen that I made is not available in the Home Screen Menu on my phone.

But, i know the file is there because if I look in File Explorere, the Customized home screens I made are there - and as xml files.

Thank you
