Introduction: Make a Custom Homescreen on Android

I'm a huge fan of the Android phone, but sometimes i get bored and want to tinker. I decided to make myself an ultra minimal homescreen. The tools i used to make the following were:

- Launcher Pro
- Simple Text
- Simi Clock
- Simple Calendar

I also rooted my phone to get you these sweet screen shots, but that's not necessary for these mods. It essentially was a result of poking around with the settings until i found something i liked.

What kind of hacks have you done with your Android themes? post the photos in the comments below.

Look in the market for clockwork mod recovery and you will have to pay to d/l but it will give you the option to install Cyanogenmod 7.1 or 7.2 i believe you can get 7 for free, it will do a full d/l and install for you just have to have a rooted phone I also have an LG Optimus and first thing i did after getting it was root that baby for the SU goodness lol

Here are some of mine!
They are all, except for the one on my nook, on my LG Optimus V on Virgin Mobile. If you would like to know anything I used, feel free to ask!
I'm working on a new one as we speak! For details, visit my deviantART and my MyColorscreen!
