Latest compatible ROMs: CyanogenMod 9 nightly 2012-07-08, AOKP build 40, SlimICS 3.6
-------

This is a modified version of ICS's standard theme to use Gingerbread colours in various places.

Specifically, adjustments have been made to:
  • Status bar icons and text
  • Notification pull-down title and icons
  • Recent Apps list
  • Dialogue titles
  • Checkboxes
  • Radio buttons
  • Scrubbers
  • Toggle buttons
  • Text fields
  • Selected text
  • Translucent menus and volume pop-up
  • Dialpad

Anything that wasn't mentioned in the above list is probably still blue. Applications that embed their own themes, such as the Browser, Camera, Contacts or Phone, are still blue.


Why?

Earlier this month, I finally made the leap from Gingerbread to ICS, and found the blue-on-everything-everywhere aesthetic very difficult to get used to. I like the variation in colour and contrast of the standard Gingerbread theme.

There are other, much more complete makeovers for ICS out there, but I also wanted as much of the standard ICS look and feel as possible; just with a touch of Gingerbread where I felt it was appropriate.

This is the result. I don't know if anyone would want to use this, but I'm throwing it out here so you get to decide for yourself.


Download

There are historical packages for CM9, AOKP, and SlimICS, but the recommended version is the T-Mobile Theme Engine variant. Strangely, the same APK can't be installed on both CM9 and AOKP; atempting to do so results in a crash. I think this has to do with a layout XML file modified by this theme, and the way XML files depend on the compiled framework. Anyway, that being the case, I've built separate versions for each.

T-Mobile Theme EngineCyanogenMod 9AOKP
  • Build 35 (md5sum: 9d1462e615c3d1c75a6515c3717a4505)

A number of scripts I use to simplify the theme extraction and build process are also available:

Known Issues

CyanogenMod 9
  • Notification power widget indicators are blue. It doesn't look like I'll be able to change this without editing source code. If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know.
AOKP
  • Alternate power widget toggles are blue again. The image from before is no longer used.
SlimICS
  • Clock font is blue. Nothing I can do about this; SlimICS sets clock font colour the same way as AOKP, but doesn't include the control panel for it.

Haha, AOKP sure is popular.

I'm working on porting the changes now, though it may take a little while since I haven't tried AOKP before. Hang tight and I'll hope to have good news soon!

Could you please confirm that the file you downloaded has an md5sum of 6d7836434cc085b28f4fda6503417a85?
Have you flashed other modifications onto your install of AOKP?
