Now, you can jump between home screens using LPP Shortcuts creating a different way to manage your device. The developer included a full how to guide including: Tutorial Files, Launcher Pro shortcuts, simple template, scrolling wallpapers, .psd files and SMS unread mod for mention some features.
Working for 800*480 resolution devices.

Scrolling Wallpaper Dock

This is a repost from here as it is not HTC Desire specific. Everything should work on any phone with 800*480 resolution.

I have been experimenting with what I believe to be a unique use for the scrolling wallpaper. If using LP with 6 homescreens your wallpaper scrolls exactly one dock icon (1/5th of the screen).

I started playing around with using this as a screen indicator and dock icons to jump between homescreens using LPP Shortcuts. Shortcuts to all 6 screens are attached. I found you could effectively use the scrolling effect of the wallpaper in place of a screen indicator (although it goes the wrong way).

It takes a bit of playing around with the wallpaper to get it 100%. I’ve included a .PSD of one of my files, however the others aren’t really in an up-loadable state. I’ve included all the scrollable wallpapers I’ve made as well.

I hope you get some fun out of this – If you do make something interesting and unique please post here to share it with everyone else!

You can find more information in the application thread.

Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
