I have found a slight bug. If you are using Spb Phone Suite (another good piece of their software) you get the big current profile icon stuck at the top of the screen instead of the little green/blue one. If you disable the 'profiles' feature of Phone Suite then it appears properly but that is the most useful feature of it! It is annoying cos it ruins the otherwise slick look


The author is posting to another forum and regularly reading and making updates. This is now up to 1.4.1. He gives a fix for this, but the instructions aren't clear and have been asked to take another look.

I don't know the rules about posting another forum's links, but here is the "official" thread on XDA-Developers: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=424933

And - this is 100% FREE! It does, however, require SPB Mobile Shell to work, so please stop bashing the author with "this isn't free then"... or "too bad it's not free". As with anything, it would be GREAT to throw the author a couple of bucks for this FANTASTIC add on... my HTC Touch has never looked better! ;)

And no... I am NOT the author... LOL

In spb shell, goto settings, customise menu, there will be a long list of sub menus. If you can see them tab the cross to the left of spb menu to expand. The menu options are

Organiser, Internet, Multimedia, Tools, Programs, Settings, Messaging, Games, Navigation, Wireless, My Menu - make sure all of these are ticked.

In the first clock screen in portrait mode, try tapping around the wireless carrier name. You will bring up the wireless dialogue options and ticking all the menus will activate the heart icon. To add shortcuts, go back to the settings as above and add them in the sub menu "my menu"


I find the problem:

....make sure all of these are ticked

I activated not all ! Now, it works !

Thank you ;)

newbie here,
just managed to install(more by chance than anything thank god) just wondering do the skins only work in spb menu screen onwards (where it says programs at the top) because if i press the end call/home screen button i get the regular spb shell menu and theme or should the new theme also be on the 'home screen'?

I get the 'heart' to work ok by activating all items, but then I get a 10th icon sitting up at the top left and the 'my menu' is still blank but has a space allocated for it and when you push the blank space 'my menu' is activated ok??

Any ideas?

Hi Gavin

Thanks for your help... appreciate it!

Actually this morning I d'loaded v1.5 of the skins and everything seems to be easier to modify and customise. There's some nice added features in v1.5 - well worth getting.

It does not matter, since once you actually run the skin installation script, it will copy chosen skin to SPB mobile shell dir.
And SPB mobile shell installed only to main memory unless you mod cab.

OK, I solved a couple of issues here. Firstly, the heart icon only seems to work with the latest version of SBP Mobile Shell. I was on 2.1.0 so downloaded and installed 2.1.2 and it now works. You can install the cab over the top, it will upgrade your old version and you don't need to re-register it. Then re-run the WQVGA_Installer and any skins you want.

To get upcoming appointments on your home screen, go into the SPB Mobile Shell settings, switch to the 'Classic' layout and then tap 'configure'. Tick the box for showing appointments and tap OK. Now go out and back into the settings and change back to professional (if you want the digital clock back), the appointments will stay!
