Share your menu layouts...

Well since everybody is busy updating to v20 and having to reinstall/configure most of their software, thought it would be interesting to compare how people setup their menus...

Attached are a few screenies showing my standby and root menu layout.
Really just curious to see how people setup/live with their phones

Interesting, I generally do this:

New SMS and Contacts on the left and right selection keys
6 most used apps on the active standby
9 next most used in the menu
Everything else spread among 9 folders.

Also, I've noticed that if the root or subfolder has more than 5 icons, it jumps to the 'middle' position first, number 5 if you think of the grid view like:
123
456
789
I therefore put the one I use most in that position. If there are less than 5 it goes to the first one (top left) so in that instance I put it there.

God I sound so anal.

How do you get That Meny icon?
Had it yesterday and then installed some crap and it dissapeard, redownloaded the firmware again today and made a factory reset of the phone so everything is normal now i think, but still same boring menu.
Is it the" New_structure_menu.sis " file you installed for this?
Tryed it too but looked the same..

that icon appears to me after using rotate me for a while in landscape mode and returning to portrait. It kinda sucks because the icons in the menu itself become smaller and signal/battery metters are as large as in the standby

I have made a folder with my name on it, and then move it up, so the that the first press on the menu takes me straight to that folder. Then whenever i install an app i'm gonna use i lot, the next thing i do is move that app to my shortcut folders
