SBP Mobile Shell can be quite fugly, especially because of the lack of custom icons and full customization of the menu screen. Also, the completely “windows” themed icons can be quite annoying.
Customizing the SBP Mobile Shell Icons:
all dat files – zip it closed password (applies to SPB Plus) Password b0fm18zq
If even simpler: open file in PhotoShop, make a copy on a copy! — draw with layers and so forth – with copies in the copy buffer – impose on the original – link sectors – remain with “SAVE” – SHELL and PLUS – very sensitive palette to change – if the file is simply to preserve the “SAVE AS ….” and the changing palette of color and depth.
not difficult.. not impossible.
1. copy all of the graphics (png’s)
2. make new ones and name them the same way (using Photoshop)
3. Stop the processes associated with SPB all of them and more. basicaly put it into “safemode for a ppc” kill all but the essential processes.
4. replace the old files with the new ones and reboot.
Note: the new files have to be identical in format (ex: PNG 24bit 96pxlX96pxl) not that it is the actual format.
Customizing for SQ320 (320×320) resolution: Some downloadable files are available, there’s also a theme from imarche.net.
SBP Now Screen as Today Screen:
This can be happen and after soft reset. Just edit the mobile shell’s shortcut in the windows\startup folder with a file manager(I use total commander) and remove the “-noshow” option. If there is not exist an spb mobile shell shortcut, just create one from the executable.
You can go to the Now screen with the “\Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell\Menulauncher.exe -now” command. You can assign it to a button, or a FTouchFlo gesture.
1.) Copy the “MobileShell.exe” application from \Program Files\Spb Mobile Shell, and
2.) create a shortcut “Shortcut to MobileShell.lnk” in \windows\StartUp, then
3.) Perform a Soft reset.
Now the Mobile Shell Spb Menu (Application) screen auto loads after the soft reset. No Reg edit required for this…
TheDumbKid posted a file called “sbpwatcher.cab” that will automatically return you to the new screen whenever you hit the today screen.
