HOW TO SET UP YOUR OWN BACKGROUND SCREEN! Real or Fake?
From a reader:
I have figured out a way to create custom backgrounds and even remove the 2 people from the home screen. Ive included a screenshot of my sk3 with a custom background. Pretty cool huh?
Here is Directions (Thanks to Enjoi and others for clarifying): Plug in your USB cord from your Sidekick to your Computer Go to the drive where your Sidekick folders are Make a new folder called "Themes" (without the quoutes) Then inside that folder make a new folder with the theme name you want to appear on the sidekick Add the picture you want. make sure its a .pgn or .jpg file. also size 240X138 Add the 2nd pic you want for the sub catagory Open Windows "Notepad" or any other Text Editing Program and create a new file to include the following: # ThemeName # string Name(en_US) ThemeName bitmap ring-background FileNumberOne.png bitmap ring-folder-background FileNumberTwo.png Save the file as "theme.txt" into the folder you created above inside the theme folder Example file:
Code:# CrazyPic # string Name(en_US) CrazyPic bitmap ring-background CrazyPic1.png bitmap ring-folder-background AnotherPic.png
Save the file as "theme.txt" in folder Themes/CrazyPic Unplug the usb cable from the sk3 after you upload them so the changes take effect ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ UPDATE: to Make the Phone App "People" Graphic disappear . . . You will need to put this image into your theme folder. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/kisha/images/chooser-phone-splash-screen.png So now there should be THREE images and ONE text file in your theme folder. AFTER you have done that you should add an additional line to your text file & it would look something like this: # CrazyPic # string Name(en_US) CrazyPic bitmap ring-background CrazyPic1.png bitmap ring-folder-background AnotherPic.png bitmap chooser-phone-splash-screen chooser-phone-splash-screen.png
