How to customize S60v3 FP2 (N85) home screen? Anyone knows?

Hi,
Is it possible to customize the mobile home screen without any apps?
I used to see my mails in the desktop, but now I can't, after a firmware update. Also, I want to remove "Ovi Share" from the desktop menu, as I don't use this service.

Even if it is not possible to customize everything, is there anything that we can alter?


Thanks.

Hi arly. im also an N85 user,well when u mean homescreen do u mean that mainscreen bars on the bottom for wlan,email,ect? if so i may have a small solution,try this.

menu>tools>settings>personalization>standby,you can either choose horizontal or vertical icon bar to show it,and Basic to hide it away.

if your talking about customizing the startup,

settings>personalization>display>welcome note/logo

as for customizing those bars on the bottom with your own things i can't tell you how.

try searching out there for a third party program to do so,your best bet is probably 1 of the following sites:

dotsis.com,ipmart-forum.com

mobilecastle.biz

(note all requires free registration as they are forums)

and mobile9.com

I hope this helped and hope your problem gets sorted.

as ive explained. u got those options there,just click on basic(in the options i gave u) and it should completely remove everything from your home screen,except for your apps bar,which u can easily customize which app u want in watever order u feel,u can do this by going to settings>personalization>standby mode>shortcuts,and to remove that bar u go settings>personalization>themes>standby and choose basic,hope u get it right:smileywink:

I wanted to customize the home screen bars without a 3rd party app... But it's not tat important anyway.

 

There is an app that can do this (but it actually replaces the homescreen by annother customizable screen): vHome Desktop.

 

If you google it., you'll find more info/download links (it's freeware).
