Want a different look to your homescreen?

.. Then check out the thread in the N97 forum. App works just on the X6 too.

Thread is here... if you want to talk relative to the X6, just add comment in this thread instead of the N97 one.

I've been using it for the last month, without any major issues bar one. Memory usage is abysmal, I try and load Opera with the shell running and it locks up, this is with every thing else shut down as well, but the strange thing is that I can things like Garmin with the shell running without a problem gps and bluetooth running and no warning flags. the only other niggle I have is trying to shut the shell down fully as it can try to restart itself for some reason.

yeah, memory usage is heavy but its supposed to be improving..

If I load Opera it alerts but still runs once passed the alert.

The shell always tries to restart I guess as it thinks it should ...

Im having a few more problems with this now... anyone else?

Basically, if Im running shell and Nokia Messaging for example then open Gravity thats the lot.

Cant open anything else without losing a running app. Multi tasking is a bit harder now.

Ive been looking over HandyTask man use and its SPB is using about 20MB.

I have 199MB free on C:, 21.7G free on E: on boot and running.

Looking at HandyTask man on a reboot I have 16.0M RAM with Nokia Email, Messaging, Contacts Bar, SPB Mobile Shell & Home Screen running.

If I run Internet, that drops to 12.2M
Add Gravity and its 6.1M
Add Emoze and its down to 3.6 - 4.6M and unstable.

I have 120M of RAM available on the handset but clearly a lot of that is used as resource.

If I close Shell and have just my home screen running I have around 33M free.

re start SPB - drops down to 17MB so its picking up 16MB.

re start Emoze - 14M
re start Gravity - 9M

and I reached an all time low last night of 256k. lol

Still, despite these problems Shell really does offer some great usefulness on the 'desktop' as long as you aren't using a load of other apps at the same time.
