I tried beta 295 a couple of weeks ago but found that the memory usage was too high (causing maps to crash). I sent feedback to SPB and uninstalled it.

I tried 316 last week and memory usage was better but performance was compromised slightly. I sent feedback to SPB and uninstalled it.

I tried 332 last night and received the message "Your 15-day trial has ended".

I don't feel as though I've had a trial of the software at all, more like tested it for the developers.

Apart from contacting SPB is there another way to reset the 15-day trial start date?

I also noticed that the settings/customisations were preserved between the uninstall of 295 and the install of 316, is there a way to restore the original configuration because I made a mess of all the screens.

Cheers!
Matt.

On the home screen, select the bottom right settings button and choose "Reset to default".

lol. so funny.

if this had come with the n97 it would be a different device - albeit with a scratchy lens and dodgy gps - but it is super smooth and shiny with it.

won't stop me defecting, but the 2 week trial will make the 2 weeks of iWait more bearable...

I couldn't agree with you more on that point Dave.

This is something that all new Nokia's should come with.

SPB Mobile Shell 3.5.5 beta Build 341 is now out.

Seems to be faster and more fluid than 332. Lots of bugs fixed (operator name for instance plus naming of widgets amongst others).

Download unsigned 15 day trial version here:-

So...does N97 run the new version well or still sluggish? Slower than default UI?

It runs it very well indeed.

I find it a lot faster and smoother and does not "hog" RAM.

Also it is soooo configurable and "mod-able".

As angiepea mentioned, I have deleted all my built-in screen widgets, which gave me back about 10MB of RAM.

It has a 15 day trial so why not give it a whirl.

The release version of SPB Mobile Shell v3.5.5 Build 295 is available for download here:-

I don't think anything can run slower than the default UI

Do try it, it's pretty amazing

Thanks! I saw a YouTube video a month back or so with SPB Shell and it ran pretty slow... slower than default UI.

I'm gonna give the beta a go now, thanks.

Not sure it will work though. I had changed the time on my phone to install an app I had signed with an expired certificate. When I changed the time back, my SPB shell trial said it had expired... even though I was only three days into it.

[EDIT] Installed ok, and the trial has restarted at 15 days again which is good. What isn't good though, is that the Media Player doesn't seem to work. It just displays a square box. RAM-wise, according to my DeviceInfo widget, is between 33-34Mb free on bootup which is 3-4Mb better than with the release build.

[EDIT #2] Removed my little tweaks and the Media Player shows up ok now.

Hey TP

first of all you need to get a key and cert - i've been through the chinese website linked to here

http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?topic=11701.0

these guys explain it really well, so the instructions are easy to follow.

You then need to download an app called "freesigner" http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?topic=818.0

When you get your key and cert, open up your mass memory via pc suite, make a new folder "keycert" and put them in there.

make another new folder "myinstalls" and put spb shell in there

load "freesigner" as you would usually load apps.

come out of pc suite

open up freesigner on your phone
go to options - settings - scroll down to sign cert (then follow the instructions to take you to the cert you have loaded to your mass)
go to options - settings - scroll down to sign key (as above)

go to Add Task, look for your new spb shell that you have loaded in "myinstalls" and highlight it, then click options - add - sign sis (not self sign)

This will then take you to another screen, you will see it loaded, go to options and then "Go !"

All you have to do now is to go to "my installs" on your e drive where you loaded the first spbshell, you should then see that you have 2 sis files, click on the one that you signed and it should load to the phone.

That's it

Hmmm, how did you get another 15-day trial?

I have not tried to install the latest version yet, but 332 knows that my trial has expired regardless of my phone's date.

I emailed SPB requesting another trial period and they replied with this:

If you already installed SPB Mobile Shell before, it should ask you to register the
program after 15 days. Unfortunately, it is impossible to extend the 15-days trial
period, but to solve this problem you can perform a hard-reset.
