Having problems with your HP OmniBook XE3 Notebook ?

What is a better software for omnia? spb...s2U2...or touch flo 2d OR CAN YOU INSTALL THEM ALL TOGETHER?

\015 CAN you install them all together but use them one at a time?....or if you have any good skins for omnia can you please suggest them?...THANKS\015

Answers :

2 of the things you mention SPB and TouchFlo 2d are user interfaces.
i have used both in the past and each has its positive and negative points.
SPB mobile shell gives the benefit of making your Omnia much more finger friendly. when i had this installed i really didnt have a use for the stylus any more.
where it falls down a bit is in the way different things work inside the shell itself.the basic omnia screen still runs in the background, then you have to touch the soft button in order to launch the mobile shell each time you reboot the phone. also if you hit the bottom right hardware button the screen reverts back to the basic samsung screen and you have to hit the soft button again to relaunch the SPB shell. if it had a bit more of a flowing feel to it i would have stayed with it but it almost felt clumsy compared to other user interfaces i have tried.
i am currently running the TouchFlo2d user interface and have to say i am quite happy with it. it is also known as Manilla2D. i followed the basic instructions here http://www.modaco.com/content/i900-omnia-rom-discussion/274737/update-24-nov-08-custom-rom-manilla2d-with-alternate-landscape-dxhk1-m2d04/ and have not had a single problem with it as of yet....been installed for 2 weeks now.
full install instructions are on that forum thread as well as a ton of different Omnia only themes you can install to change the look of TouchFlo to better suit your personality.
i dont reccomend installing both user interfaces at the same time unless you just basically want run out of internal software memory ( this is different then storage memory)
the 3rd app you mentioned is simply a screen locker.
S2U2 can be used with either of the above UI's but i found it, for lack of a better word, useless.
holding down the right lower hardware button for 3 seconds locks the screen anyhow. then it takes 2 taps to unlock it again.
if you are simply trying to emulate the slide to unlock on the iPhone then maybe you bought the wrong phone to start with.
other uset interfaces you might want to take a look at are winterface and pointui.
i have already found my fav but maybe your tastes are different.
good luck
