Mebbe you need to appunlock your device? Have you done this? If you don't know what I mean, head over to Paul's post here about changing the Neo home screen and such where he also includes the app that can appunlock your Shadow.

I've already app unlocked it as well. I think it just won't let me modify the files that are in use.. but I don't know how to disable them.. ;)

Green. I've already copied and Photoshopped all the files, I just can't paste them back into my Windows folder for some reason..

Same here -- have tried renaming or deleting them via my desktop, not possible -- unchecking the 'read only' box doesn't work either. Also tried the same using Resco Explorer on the device, same issue. My Shadow is also app-unlocked.

The easiest way would be to install a CAB, other than that, you could try renaming the files in the Windows dir, and then copying the new versions.

Chances are it'll throw up some errors during the rename etc. using that method, but it SHOULD work ;)

This is just a note, focused on the web/links on the left. (the default options are 4 fold: MS portable IE, T-zones ringers, T-zones background, My Account).
The registry entries for these are in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\CHome\CLinks.

  • the Iconpaths key includes the path to the active image (highlighted, 1st), the inactive image (unhighlighted, 3rd, and something else).
  • the Pages key includes which pages, and in what order, the pages are displayed.

in each page subkey, e.g. Page5 or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\CHome\CLinks\Page5

  • ACTIONURL is what happens when you press enter, in the following format: "program; [website]". ex. ":MSPIE; google.com" = MS portable IE, opening google.com
  • the GUID is the same across all the Page keys- just copy and paste
  • PICTURES is the image link- i used .png s and dropped them in the \windows\ directory. theoretically, you could change the repository and/or size, I haven't tried. nor have I tried other formats.
  • SK2TEXT is the right soft button text (e.g. "gmail")
  • SK2URL is the right softbutton action, following the ACTIONURL format: e.g. ":MSPIE;gmail.com" to open gmail.
  • TEXT1 is the bold, main text (I'm pretty sure, double check it) (ex. "Google")
  • TEXT2 is something else, don't ask me, i don't know
  • TITLETEXT is the small text above the big- format "text [a/b]", where text is the value of TITLETEXT, and a is the index of
    the Page, b is the number of total Pages ."Internet [3/4]" or "Mail [2/4]". 

That all I know, though if anyone has a working faded of the MS IE icon to use instead of the faded T-Mob hotspot one, I would love it.
Cheers

Why would you have PCMIA entries in a WM6 smartphone registry??

Here's something I made as I got sick of the default theme. :( Feel free to download the zip if you like what you see. I'm only zipped up the background images and color scheme to keep the zip small. If you like the icons, you can download the iCandy iconsets from iconaholic.com. Just unzip the PNGs to the \Windows folder and the XML to \Application Data\Home folder. :D

I created the XML myself. If you are looking for black/gray, just open the XML in notepad and edit with the appropriate color, something like #000000. Hope that helps. :(

Thanks Paul and MetalSlug! Glad you enjoy it. :( Still messing around with the neo theme so the files I posted may not be as clean as I want it to be. If I do clean it up some more, I'll post them. :D

Does anyone know how to change the Comm Manager background? I think this is the only part that I can seem to change. TIA!
