JL_Cmdr Screenshots of Your Home Screen

JL_Cmder

For those of you that have not tried this great little utility, check it out and post a screen shot of your Home Screen so we can see what theme and other look and feel people are using. It's just for fun.

Note when you do the screenshot it will open in your default viewer for bitmap files (bmp). The file size will be about 300kb which is too big to post here. Try saving as jpg. My file size was reduced to 20kb.

Have fun everyone.

How the heck do you do this? I ran the file, but I don't know what to do to get it up on my PC? Run > CMD, then what?

Default Try this

When you installed it there should be a desktop icon. Run that when attached via USB. Then hit any key on the PC. The choose Screenshot from the menu. That's all there is to it.

You rock, thanks...

Here is my current one, the standard Vodafone with the included optional White BBTiles background. (Sabesh, you've got mail...)

Default I see a theme in the theme

People seem to like a clean background. I think it's the only way to identify the icons. I like the fade out look of my pic under the blue at the top of the my theme.

Hey Doc,

Cool looking home screen. I saw yours on the Millinium site where I downloaded mine. You did a fantastic job creating it.

I'd like to get one geared for the mortgage industry.

Default just Curious

No Offense meant, but wouldn't the Ringtones, Themes and Wallpapers Forum be more appropriate for this thread? I mean that is why that forum was started.

I personally would rather see it here. I don't want to go to three different forum threads to find info for just the 8700. Just my .02

Well, by skipping that forum you're missing out on some decent themes and artwork for your 8700c.

Just my $0.02

Default Yes and No

My purpose was to get people to use Javaloader with the Jl cmdr interface so it really wasn't a theme exercise, and heck I have more loyalty here.

Sweet, KonTiki. I love that background. That's what I have on mine at the moment. I also have that one on my desktop. It's called Kentucky Morning or something like that. Very nice.
