    i just update my 5800 to firmware 4
    how can i get the home screen like that???

    i mean like 5530 that mention above.
    because nothing change for my home screen still same interface like before..

    the only change is:
    1. "kinetic scroll" which ONLY works on LIST type, not for grip. expecially the app folder
    2. auto change key board that works well

    • TALHA

      first of all go to settings > personal > Themes > home screen theme > AND CHECK CONTACT BAR, now u will get the 5530 effect
