    Home screen on XM5800?

    Hello Guys,
    I have just started to wonder if it is possible to extend or replace the home screen on the XM5800 anbd other devices somehow.

    Searching the Wiki revealed but this:
    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...es:Home_Screen

    Is there really no way?

    All the best

    Re: Home screen on XM5800?

    N97's home screen is nothing but a customization of the Active Idle application. There should be a lot of info on these threads about the Active Idle and its plug-in support but in brief the situation is like this: no public APIs available, on S60 3.0 and 3.1 the plug-in must be enabled in ROM but since S60 3.2 that limitation was removed.

    As usual, if you have a business reason you can apply for API Partnering.
