Photos

It was the only time i got the message "not enough memory" and i got it quite often when i first loaded the shell.

Ignore it, just keep trying to open your photos and it should do after two or three times - i found that after a few weeks of persistance the error message came less and less often.

Also, every time i rebooted my phone i would always close down unwanted running apps via task manager and they would stay closed until either I opened them or the next time i rebooted, anything you can do to take back some ram will help shell and the apps that you do want to run.

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
Update to 3.5.5 and it will fix the ram issue

To exit SPB Shell...

Launcher > Settings > Bottom right button > Exit Shell

Hope that helps.

I would guess that you have a few other app's running in the background (or have not emptied your built-in home screen) as I can access Photo's and Music Player together with no problem.

I do also notice that you are using the old edition of SPB Shell (build 295) which is RAM heavy and uses about 10MB more than the latest v3.5.5.

Therefore a simple update may solve your problems.

Any ideas where on the C drive it stores the fact you've installed a trial? I don't want to do a hard reset, but I'd like to try the newer build, except it won't let me install it.

Just back-up your settings using Shell's Settings Back-up and then uninstall your old Shell using the phones application Manager and then install the latest version.

If you likes the old version (build 295) you'll love the new one!

If you're trying to get another 15 day trial then, without hacking your phone, you'll have to do a hard reset.

I use Handy Taskman (see screen shot) for viewing and closing tasks as well as monitoring RAM and disk usage.

It is an absolute "must have" for my N-series phones.

Costs $14.95 from here:-

http://nokia-n97-software.epocware.c...y_Taskman.html

There are also a number of FREE Task applications such as JBTaskman. See here:-

http://jbak.ru/jbaktaskman_en.php

Hope this helps.

Thanks ironass... I would explore JBTaskman first... then go for paid one.....
Just a quick qs... Do I have any option to pay by Indian Rupee... as my credit card company would put a premium over the actual price if I pay in foriegn currency... :(
(for history I pay SPB shell in $ which actually make it costier of roughly 1$... But I happily accept that...)

The honest answer sukanta is that I don't remember as it's been over a year since I purchased Handy Taskman for the N97.

JBTaskman should more than do the job though.

Email widget for SPB Mobile Shell

It looks cool - I've been watching a couple of video reviews of this on the N97 and N97 Mini on YouTube from reputable sources like Symbian Guru etc and it does look tempting.

I know people have mentioned that there's no way to integrate the Nokia Messaging widget from the default homescreen onto this but the user guide that you can read on the SPB website talks of an email widget.

Any know any more about this? It's clearly not simply a shortcut to the email program so I wondered if there is a widget that can display when you have a new email on a homescreen - even if there's no info about the subject and sender etc etc.

Cheers

I use SPB Mobile Shell and I think it's a brilliant piece of software. I'm really happy with it.

Yeah, there is an option... A widget sits on a screen as an envelope icon BUT that is tied into the messaging mail boxes, so you can still have it showing new and number of mails, just not if they are coming thru Nokia Messaging client. Looks like this. (X6 tho)
