Finally, after about 15 to 20 days of hardwork in my spare time (edit: and further 8 days of typing the guide), I have something really beautiful thing to give to my most loved community.

So this (Project) is called MaeMeeMo i.e. Its a mixture of Maemo5, Meego (Harmattan) and Nemo. As you all can see in the screenshots and the Intro Image (below), it has the goodness of Maemo5 (Homescreens), Meego (Harmattan) standby screen as lockscreen, and Nemo look and feel.

THIS is NOT an APP, its a transformation pack which requires some resources like themes, transitions, icons, depending apps and plugins. etc.

So here we go!, the look and the intro Image as a sneak peek.

Intro Image:

Main Homescreen View:
(Portrait Mode with Nemo Wallpaper)

(Landscape Mode with Nemo Wallpaper)

MaeMeeMo Lockscreen: (just swipe from left to right) [Bottom Left]
Nemo-MaeMeeMo Lockscreen: [Tap to Unlock] [Bottom Right]

To get this modification, please follow the step by step Guide attached (linked) below (the guide format is .pdf).

This is a BETA Release so, If you have any major problem, then please report me, I will try to solve it for you in my spare time.

A BIG Thank you, to everybody here, who waited, helped, thanked and congratuated me during the coming soon period and after.

Now this is freaking awesome! I've been hoping for someone to come up with a new UI.

Though, I'm not too sure on the project name. I would suggest one of these:
* Japanese spinach salad

I'll be following this to see how it progresses.
