Springboard additional buttons

Is there anyway to get the springboard to accept more than 5 buttons? Creating an application where I would like to have approx 9 possible buttons. If this is not possible, can the springboard call another screen which accepts more than 5 buttons.
Thanks

Re: Springboard additional buttons

No way (that I'm aware of) to allow 9 buttons on the springboard, but there are a few options...

  • Show the four most important options and make the fifth option a "More..." button that opens an roMessageDialog with the additional options

  • If metadata display beyond a short title and subtitle isn't important, you could use an roListScreen

  • You could create your own custom screen using roImageCanvas or roScreen
