NOTE: If you want to port/use this theme in your own rom/mod I don't have anything against it, but please, before you do that, inform to me first. Second give proper credits for my work in your thread/mod/rom . These type of projects are invested months and hours of hard work & my life , so please respect my decision !





Introduction,


Quote:

This theme is made for anyone who is looking for a more elegant user interface in their Samsung Galaxy S3's & for those who simply don't like Samsung's plastic looking touchwiz ui Theme is inspired by Sony Xperia NXT design & UI !
For now only support Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 stock deodexed firmwares and any rom based on these firmwares.Maybe in future I will make a theme for cm theme chooser but this is a big maybe since cm is not that stable in S3 yet.

Over 1000 icons from stock Samsung apps are changed lot more is theme'd than what is shown in sshots And this theme @ version 1.00 is still a work in progress,there are more things needs to be theme'd

What's theme'd in v7 beta


  • Boot Animation from S5
  • Chrome Browser
  • Clock app - Half done atm
  • Framework 100%
  • Job Manager
  • SecGallery2014 - move the apk to system\app from pri-pp folder
  • Google Play
  • Camera App - Half
  • Calculator...


Screenshots





Instructions



  1. Install the latest Archiport version.
  2. Install a S5 app mod pack.
  3. Move SecGallery2014.apk to system\app from priv-app folder.
  4. Take a cwm backup.
  5. Install the theme & reboot.


If you don't follow the * steps then it will probably boot loop or the apps won't be themed !


Downloads & change-logs are in second post



In the recent months I had lot of exams and my part time job was taking all the time I had so sorry it took long time to update the theme to support latest fw's.I am juggling studies on cima,8 exams before September and job with the university degree.So if you enjoy my work and think I deserve something please consider and add a small donation through paypal This will help me with my degree as expenses are very high when u are a student living alone with a odd job :/



Also I will update the theme and theme each other sammy system apk's left in coming months, but due to exams it will take some time but I will do it


Thanks !

Well I am Thilina Abeykoon & from small island Sri Lanka currently studying for university entrance exams in commerce stream of subjects.
I first started modding mobiles way back in 2006 with my old Sony Ericsson W810i.Came a long way with non smart phone modding from W810i to W995i from Sony Ericcson.Then brought my first smartphone Xperia Neo V.Guys from Xperia 2011/2012 forums should know me well I guess then after few months decided to change the sony brand after 7 years for a change and here I am with Galaxy S3 =) Now you might be wondering why the hell I wrote this well the v1.0 theme zip is still in upload and I finished writing the op of the thread and had nothing to do Hope you guys enjoy my first theme to Galaxy SIII

I do this work for free & for my enjoyment, and I don't expect any money for this. So if you like my work, feel free to .This encourage me to do more work

And as always Please No mirrors,respect my decision !
