    HOT UPDATE!!!
    go here for info, screens and downloads:
    DxTend Theme for SPB Mobile Shell
    first Beta release by DrunphO



    from the beginning:

    SPB Mobile Shell Simple Theme
    Alpha Version by DrunphO




    Brief description:
    A long time ago... ehehe, but yes... a long time ago i start modding my own theme, first i use a mix of bladehu2's Glass Box and Seyd's Vivaz Edition (for me the best and more complete themes) but time to time i changed something here and there, and now i have something completely different.
    Don't expect a new and fresh design, this theme isn't about design, it's more about simplicity and functionality. I did this for me so maybe you will notice a lack of widget design options, in fact, for example i didn't edit the media widget because i don't use it.
    But i've edited almost everything on qa_layouts and almost all bars and buttons so letís see what's different.


    HOT:
    Real Thin Bottom Bar
    Yeah! real bar with 60px height and with full support for portrait and landscape, semitransparent and with more functions than ever:
    - integrated slide bar, even in landscape (something that doesn't exist even in the original theme)
    - slidebar works also like 5th button. if you press the slidebar on homescreen you go to professional and in professional screen you go to home.
    - Added a center button in sub-menus in order to go back to homescreen directly
    - new icons inspired on belle bar
    - replaced the "ugly" icons from the various menus with simple dots but maintaining all the functionality
    - the bar on homescreen it's prepared to 5 pages and for 3 on professional

    New and Smaller Calendar
    With full support also for landscape, now u have a nicer and smaller calendar, resulting on a large area for the list

    New and Smaller Dialer
    Also like the calendar, you will get a simple, smaller and cooler dial

    AND...
    7 Extra Screens
    7 extra screens with 1 page with vertical scroll for categories, if you scroll to right or left u will go to the next or previous screen


    MORE:
    - New top status bar with common but "better" icons;
    - New and Simple style for some widgets like the analog clock or battery;
    - Some other simple options for some widgets like Picture Frame or Contact;
    - Boxes, some color inspired belle backgrounds, invisible and others sizes for shortcuts;
    - Some widgets with different sizes in portrait and landscape in order to better fit the screen size;
    - Belle inspired icons for menus and some other like task manager;
    - Edited and moved the close icon in task manager;
    - Removed the ugly and useless vertical scrollbar in some pages like favorite contacts;
    - Bigger images and nicer picture's file name localization on slideshow;
    - Added 2 folders in Menu\Tool for Original and Custom Panels;
    - Added some programs to default menus;
    - etc, etc, etc. Well... too much things to enunciate all, but like i said before... i've edited almost all files in qa_layouts, so you must try it to see with your own eyes, but i must said that i tried to clean and align everything in all pages, removed all the excessive glow forms, items adapted to the new screen area, etc, etc, etc.

    See CHANGELOG for news and more info...



    NOTES:
    Like i said before i started this mod a long time ago, but only now (i think) i have something really different here that is worthy to share it. i suggest you to try it, even if you prefer the WOW widgets style, u can use this one like the base theme and add your own favorites widgets styles.

    I released this as an Alpha version because there are still some things to be modded, so it isn't even a Beta Version, but...

    ... it's STABLE and FULL FUNCTIONAL

    I hope that i can reach a Final version soon.

    I've attached some random screenshots, a pack with almost all pages at 50% of original size and, of course, all the files you need it.


    TO DO:
    Well, it depends on you... if there is feedback and people like it i will improve the theme in a general way, but the things i want to change next are:
    - Edit Big Box for shortcuts in order to better fit 3 rows on landscape;
    - Add Simple style to all widgets, including the Media Widget;
    - Restore the possibility to use all the original widgets;
    - Some buttons and some bars styles aren't exactly equal because some are very old and others i made this month. i plan to correct this;
    - Add translations for custom panels and styles to all languages (here i will need some help from you);
    - Modify the shortcut format and probably the images too that i use to the Extra Panels and re-create the entire layout with those;
    - Release a lite version without the extra layouts, i don't test it but i presume that consumes less ram;
    - Add more apps to default menus: Internet, Multimedia, Tools, Messaging, Organizer and Settings

    if someone could provide me with a list with the respective UIDs and by categories i'll appreciate very much
    for example:
    Internet - Opera Mini - #00000000
    Multimedia - TTPod - #11111111
    Tools - PhoneTorsh - #22222222
    Messaging - iSMS - #33333333
    Organizer - NiceAlarm - #44444444
    Settings - Swype - #55555555


    for Moderators:
    Please don't merge this thread with the general one for now... this one is a little different and i share it only here, it's a kind of Daily Mobile exclusive SPB MobileShell theme


    MORE ABOUT:
    1. You should have only Lifestyle layout enabled in settings, but you can access the Professional one by pressing the slidebar on the center of menubar in Homescreen (Lifestyle). When in Professional layout you can go back to Homescreen by pressing again on the bar or scrolling up or down. I use the professional layout to access the extra layouts but i think that it's also excellent to use it to something like the Belle status panel.
    2. On the Extra Layouts for Categories u should have only 1 page for each one. You will see also a working scroll bar for the 7 pages and you can scroll up and down to see all the page (i didn't include the vertical scroll on this pages, it's useless, i don't like it and i didn't figured out how to mod it) and right and left to navigate between the 7 layouts. Pressing the slidebar you will go back directly to Homescreen.


    HOW TO:
    Change Slidebar for 3 or 5 pages:
    [1] open the qa_layouts.dat provided in the pack with winrar or a similar program;
    [2] extract* the file:
    - LockScreen.xml - if u want to change it in professional
    - LockScreen2.xml - if u want to change it in lifestyle
    [3] open the extracted file with notepad;
    [4] find and edit the line:

    <Layer Name="Slider" Dialog="MenuBarSlider3"/> <!-- for a 3 dots slider -->
    or
    <Layer Name="Slider" Dialog="MenuBarSlider"/> <!-- for a 5 dots slider -->

    [5] save the file and update* qa_layouts.dat (ex. drag the file to the qa_layouts.dat's winrar window)
    [6] copy the updated qa_layouts.dat to e:\Others\SpbShell\
    [7] restart SPB Mobile Shell
    * IMPORTANT: for extraction and also for compression (when updating qa_layouts.dat) you must use the password: b0fm18zq

    Translate the theme for your own language
    1. Open the file Strings_**.txt corresponding to your language;
    2. In the end of the file you will find the non-translated strings that you need to edit - translate them;
    3. Save your file and copy to e:\Private\20028B16\
    (...) read more about

    Personalize the Extra Screens names
    1. Open the file Strings_**.txt corresponding to your language;
    2. In the end of the file you will find the strings "ExtraScreen1", "ExtraScreen2", "ExtraScreen3", etc.
    3. Rename the second part of those lines (after the "|" character) to whatever you want.
    4. Save the file and copy it to e:\Private\20028B16\ overwriting the existing



    TRANSLATIONS:
    It's possible to translate everything on SPB Mobile Shell - shortcuts, menus, widgets styles, etc. - even the extra panels on this theme (...) Translations are in progress, know more about here:

    thanks i hope u like it

    it's my intention to release a lite version without the 7 extra screens but i don't have time for now and for the next weeks, that's why i released this Alpha version.

    about the icons... i can do that but like i said not for now...

    my icon files are a little messy (that's one more thing to do before the final version) because i'm modding this theme for so long when i have some free time. I want to remove all the non used icons, bars, buttons, etc. even the original ones in order to have a lighter theme.

    but for now...

    meanwhile u can upload your files and i will see what i can do. but please do not upload a bunch of icon files pack, just the ones you want and where you want.

    thanks again for your reply

    thanks.
    those pages aren't a new thing, they are just more 7 Lifestyle layouts and the headers are just a battery widgets with text shortcuts to the other categories the thing new here is that u can change between those layouts by scrolling left or right

    and you don't need to load the settings, if you install the sis file provided on the second post or even do it manually step by step u will have all those setting when u load it for the first time

    if u really want it just because... i can upload it too but i must warn you that loading setting from the MSettings.set file it will not work perfectly. i don't know why but anytime i do it, some shortcuts lose the link.

    and thanks for your feedback
