really... bit short sighted that isnt it?? So if they brought the best phone out EVER... you'd still not have it as it was a Nokia?

Absolutely loving this spb shell, a big thanks for the heads up

and also thanks for the pdf+, its so much better than adobe. I like the way it loads up one page at a time instead of trying to handle the whole document, its way more responsive than quick office/adobe.

can this phone get any better ?

I have even fine tuned video conversion and this phone is a beast at video playback.

The only downside to this phone is the lack of games....

Thanks, just bought it (179 NOK), same as UK price.

So, I wanted to try some of the mods I found here:
http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.ph...c,23448.0.html

but I must be a bit thick, since I can't figure out how to do it.
I see they kep talking about modifying some files (e.g x:/system/apps/SpbShell_20028b16.reg) and C:\Private\20028b16 ir E:\Private\20028b16 but there are no such folders or files on my phone (it's installed to E).

I tried to make the E:\Private\20028b16 folder, and put modified files there, but no luck.

Help pretty please....??

hey flek, if you want to modify the private folder you need to hack your phone
if it's not hacked you can do only the cosmetic stuff, changing skins, etc which can be put in the (install drive)/spbshell

that's not necessarily true .... you can change the clock/weather/icons without hacking your phone.

only, i've forgotten how to do it ...... Ian will tell you .... where's Ian, Ian, Iaaaannnnnn

Yes, I finally found out how to change/add the widgets.
Just make a folder on x:\Others\SPBShell and put the .dat-files there...

I guess I have to find out how to hack it now...


btw: I tried to make a folder on e: like E:\Private\20028b16\ and then put all the modified files there (9 mb in total), and then rebooted the phone.
After reboot, the folder on e: was gone, and the memory on my c-drive had shrinked with 9 mb, making the phone unresponsive. I had to hard reset it :(


edit:

Here's how it look now:

Looks good Fleksnes!

Just a couple of things...

I think the Weather widget on your HTC clock would look better if it were centred and balanced with a date widget (see screenshot).

The HTC Menu bar looks nice but only worked in Portrait mode when I tested it. Is it working in Landscape now with Launcher as well?

well, it's back to the default homescreen of the n97 to me for now,

hard to work with 20MB+ ram missing. i can only have one major app opening at one time

right now at least i can have msn (testing nokia chat beta, May 10 update) and gravity open at the same time without other apps closing

i think version .349 of mobile shell does not do very good memory optimisation...

.....coupled with the fact that from v21 onwards, the memory management on the n97 has gone tits up.

here's hoping the rumored v30 is able to do something about......anything!

@ironass: No, the menu bar doesn't lay out correctly when in portrait mode, but I can live with it for now (he's working on a portrait mode for it).
I need to find that date widget....

@jerm: I have no problems with to little ram (well, all is relative), but I have 40mb free with it running, which is more than enough to do some multi tasking

Hi. I tried it and had the same problem. I could not even open the pictures application on the phone as it said that I do not have enough memory free. It is a pity because I liked the multiple home screens, speed and customization options of SPBShell.

yup, relative to each other's experience. i have much-needed background apps working, and all the blablabla stuff to keep my phone behaving the way i want it to be, so...for now spbMS is back on the shelf..

Is that any way I could exit Shell? I really like those home screen and wizgets.... But it left me so little ram that I couldn't open photo browser(around 120 photos in 'captured' tab) while my music player is running... (well most of the time)...
I am somewhat wondering if I could exit the shell while do some serious work and leave the eyecandy items for rest of time....

If it would help someone
Shell version 3.5.0 - 295 build
N97 mini (unbranded Unlocked)
V 12.0.110
