TCPDF: How to have different headers/footers on different pages?

I'm using TCPDF to generate PDF documents on the fly from a database.

I need to use custom headers:

http://www.tcpdf.org/examples/example_003.phps

(from http://www.tcpdf.org/examples.php)

BUT, have hit two problems:

1. I need to suppress the footer on page one, so as not to have the page number on the title page

2. I need to vary the text in the header on each page.

I've tried calling a new Footer before each new Addpage:

class MYPDF extends TCPDF {

    // Page footer
    public function Footer() {

      if (!isset($i)) $i = 1;
      else {
        // Position at 15 mm from bottom
        $this->SetY(-15);
        // Set font
  $this->Cell(0, 0, '', T, 1, 'L', 0, '');
       $this->SetFont('helvetica', 'B', 12);
        // Title
        $this->Cell(30, 0, 'Design Out Crime ', 0, 0, 'L', 0, '');
       $this->SetFont('helvetica', 12);
        // Title
        $this->Cell(100, 0, 'Your Personalised Advice', 0, 0, 'L', 0, '');
       $this->SetFont('helvetica', 'B', 12);
       // Page number
        $this->Cell(0, 0, ''.$this->getAliasNumPage().'', 0, 0, 'R', 0, '');
      }
    }
}

But it only seems to take the first footer defined.

Can anybody help?

I already did someting as it.
You can extend the TCPDF class
use $this->page propertie to controls header and footer,
and override header and footer methods

class MYPDF extends TCPDF 
{
	function Header() 
	{			
		switch($this->page)
		{
				case 1: 
					$this->Cell(0, 0 "Header 1", 0, 1, 'C'); 
					break;
				case 2: 
					$this->Cell(0, 0 "Header 2", 0, 1, 'C'); 
					break;
		}
        }

		public function Footer() {
			if ($this->print_footer && $this->page>1) {
				
				if (!isset($this->original_lMargin)) {
					$this->original_lMargin = $this->lMargin;
				}
				if (!isset($this->original_rMargin)) {
					$this->original_rMargin = $this->rMargin;
				}
				
				// reset original header margins
				$this->rMargin = $this->original_rMargin;
				$this->lMargin = $this->original_lMargin;
				
				// save current font values
				$font_family =  $this->FontFamily;
				$font_style = $this->FontStyle;
				$font_size = $this->FontSizePt;
				
				$this->SetTextColor(0, 0, 0, false);
				
				//set font
				$this->SetFont($this->footer_font[0], $this->footer_font[1] , $this->footer_font[2]);
				//set style for cell border
				$prevlinewidth = $this->GetLineWidth();
				$line_width = 0.3;
				$this->SetLineWidth($line_width);
				$this->SetDrawColor(0, 0, 0);
				
				$footer_height = round((K_CELL_HEIGHT_RATIO * $this->footer_font[2]) / $this->k, 2); //footer height
				//get footer y position
				$footer_y = $this->h - $this->footer_margin - $footer_height;
				//set current position
				if ($this->rtl) {
					$this->SetXY($this->original_rMargin, $footer_y);
				} else {
					$this->SetXY($this->original_lMargin, $footer_y);
				}
				
				//print document barcode
				if ($this->barcode) {
					$this->Ln();
					$barcode_width = round(($this->w - $this->original_lMargin - $this->original_rMargin)/3); //max width
					$this->writeBarcode($this->GetX(), $footer_y + $line_width, $barcode_width, $footer_height - $line_width, "C128B", false, false, 2, $this->barcode);
				}
				
				$pagenumtxt = $this->l['w_page']." ".$this->PageNo().' / {nb}';
				
				$this->SetY($footer_y); 
				
				//Print page number
				if ($this->rtl) {
					$this->SetX($this->original_rMargin);
					$this->Cell(0, $footer_height, $pagenumtxt, 'T', 0, 'L');
				} else {
					$this->SetX($this->original_lMargin);
					$this->Cell(0, $footer_height, $pagenumtxt, 'T', 0, 'R');
				}
				// restore line width
				$this->SetLineWidth($prevlinewidth);
				
				// restore font values
				$this->SetFont($font_family, $font_style, $font_size);
			}
		}


}
