LPMCustomizer – Customize your Nokia N9 Lockscreen

5 Feb , 2012  

Nick Leppänen Larsson has been kind enough to develop an app that adds beauty to your Nokia N9’s Lockscreen. Just like you have in the image above, the app allows you add any simple image (may be an icon / squircle) to add beauty to your N9. Here’s what he has to say:

So how does it work?

Basically, there is room on the lock screen allocated for operator customization (which some of you might have noticed). What my small application does is allow you to set your own image there instead. From a technical point of view it’s as simple as changing a gconf value (/desktop/meego/screen_lock/low_power_mode/operator_logo) to point to your own PNG-file (120×120, preferably black and white only)

Here is the Download link: http://go.nokiatips.in/AxbEXA

Additionally, you can make the image a little bit bigger but in order to achieve this, you have to be knowledgible with css files. If you’re not familiar with css, please do not attempt this so that you do not mess up the N9.

Here’s the path:

/usr/share/themes/base/meegotouch/libsysuid-screenlock-nokia/style.css

There is a header regarding the operator logo along the lines of MImage LowPowerMode Operator Logo. It is the one only with maximum-size, the one with 3 sizes is hidden logo. Alter that to 40mm 40mm and you should be right 🙂

Unlock Landscape Orientation in Nokia N9 HomeScreens

29 Dec , 2011  

Nokia N9 does not allow Homescreens to be used in Landscape mode by default. That doesn’t mean Nokia N9 doesn’t support it. An app called N9Tweak allows you to enable landscape mode and lets you customize other things like behaviors of keys etc. You are suppose to write some commands to do this. Well, that’s geeky and probably you want something that let you do this with just simple interface, right?

 

 

All you need to do is download Home screen settings by: Vesuri and follow these simple steps:

  1. Download the app from http://go.nokiatips.in/vqDMNU (Store link) and install on Nokia N9. Don’t worry, it will not be shown as an app in menu homescreen.
  2. Now goto Settings > Applications > Homescreen and unlock the orientation or use the setting as per your choice. 🙂
  3. Enjoy your landscape menu homescreen!!!
