[THEME] PhatPhinger II WQVGA (240x400) (Omnia)

PhatPhinger II WQVGA (240x400) - modified to fit WQVGA devices, such as the Samsung Omnia

-

Background
The WeatherPanel application, which is getting on in years, doesn't properly handle WQVGA devices - it gets confused and thinks they are VGA. This messes up the layouts and displays them jumbled and too large.

This redesigned PhatPhinger layout compensates for that by displaying everything at half it's normal size. So basically, WeatherPanel is still messed up. But, if you use this layout on your WQVGA device, it will work.
Notes:
  • This layout requires standard sized QVGA icons. Icons can be found HERE.
  • This theme doesn't fix WeatherPanel - the built-in themes will still not work on the Omnia.
  • Installation instructions can be found in the PhatPhinger II WQVGA Readme file (found inside the zip file).

Enjoy!

  • Installation instructions can be found in the PhatPhinger II WQVGA Readme file (found inside the zip file).
Enjoy!

Not this one. Your Mogul is QVGA (320x240). Check the download index for the WeatherPanel install, themes and icons...

Works great until you look at the regular forcast and radar when you pres on the middle. They are huge and unreadable.

I didn't convert the internal layouts, but I did try to make this version of PhatPhinger so that you wouldn't see them. You say you're pressing in the middle - maybe I need to adjust something for full coverage...

There's no need to use them, as the skin itself covers everything (except compare)...

Thanks for the RANT Darren ... brought me out of lurker mode to say THANKS STORYR!

I just got an omnia ... loaded some of your prior work on it ...had issues with the display and figured ... "Damn... oh well, it was great while it lasted ..." only to find STORYR again is out there and taking care of us ... I have yet to run across what mckeph found ... but I'm out here if you need to run any mods under some ones nose and get feedback ...
