A super looking Homescreen called Thumbwheel now out for Nokia 5800 – Creator waspbloke.
The concept is simple just drag to rotate (rotary phone dialer type), tap icons to launch apps. Note this might work only on a hacked phone.

Note from the guy :

v1.0.1 – Tested and working on i8910HD


– A few of you seemed to be having problems with the vibrate getting stuck. This should be fixed but if you still have problems try increasing the nHoldTime interval to 2 seconds in ‘config.xml’ and see if it cures it.

– Display shows on start-up now.
– Switch off display toggle feature in ‘config.xml’.
– Switch off vibrate in ‘config.xml’.
– Minor improvement to date display.
– Battery charge animation slowed down.

Extract folder ‘ThumbWheel_HS’ to ‘E:\’
