It works fine on OMNIA2 !

It is not working, after I install, it still same. How you able to made the 3D sms and email working on OMNIA II?

Updates:

Sorry it is working, I need to add new shortcut on it as 3D sms view. But how to make it auto use the 3D sms view at SMS and MMS view lei rather than standalone.

Its not delected as default e-mail/sms app.

Goto Launcher -> Messaging -> 3D Message Viewer. The design is unique but it is slightly sluggish and aliased. I guess its due to software rendering.

In the end I installed SPB ms 3.5 very very late last night :P

For sure they added many usefull functions and improved many aspects to make usage easier/quicker.

BUT still it looks like 2 of the really important features I was hoping for are not there... a calendar widget with some kind of marks for appointments and the possibility to change/use bigger icons for widgets. :)

So I still hope in PointSense further development soon :D

The 3D sms/mms is work fine on Omnia II.

But for carousel, omnia II seen don't have 3D accelerator.

Verified that It work on HTC diamond II.

notice that some of the app for spb also not work well with Omnia II.

Thinking should be the same problem with this.

Maybe with some registry modified can work.......

Anyone advise?

Do you have the folding effect on sms/mms? Look at the picture @ my previous post!

Not this:

This is not 3D acceleration!!!

It is working but without the effect, no blending and semi reflection as well because the hardware acceleration cannot be on at OMNIA II.

I can't seem to use the twitter anda facebook widgets while using my GPRS connection, it only connects when wifi connection available, does anyone know how can I solve this, since I have GPRS always on and would like to have those services always available.

Thank you

It won't work yet, because MS3 uses GL v1 (and, should I say, in a very, very non-optimal way), and Omnia II only supports GL v2, which is a whole different thing. Also, MS3 uses some Qualcomm-specific functions, so it's not that easy to do even with a GL v1 emulation.

Though, wait for a sneak peek of what it would look like on Omnia II later this week, I'll try to do something. :)

I've logged a Tech Fault with SPB regarding their support of the Omnia 2 hardware (G Sensor and 3D acceleration). So far had a nonsense reply but I'll keep nagging them. If they update their software then that's probably the best way to go with it!

TheBishop, well, I already wrote just one post above yours, why, whatever their reply was, it probably wasn't nonsense at all.

For a casual user, like you, all you need to know is that your phone has some "magic" piece, a 3D accelerator, which is probably activated by a snap of fingers and some magic words.

Well, it's nothing like that, in fact. Making any existing OpenGL ES 1.0 application work on Omnia 2 (which supports only OpenGL ES 2.0) requires total revision (or even almost full rewriting) of that app. But, yeah, probably that's nonsense for you, because you are not a developer...

For the rest of you people, a promised teaser to keep you interested. Some special, street magic:
