Terminal Themed LG Widgets
Terminal Themed Google Search Widget
Theme best when used with an oldschool terminal style font. For myself, I'm using clacon.ttf but the font size may be too small for some of you. The theme is selects roboto as the baseline font so whether you manually replace roboto in /system/fonts or you use a font installer app (I used Font Installer from the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...font.installer).

To install Search Widget, you must replace your stock LGSearchWidgetProvider.apk - MAKE A BACKUP FIRST!!! (copy the original file from /system/app to the root of your SD card, your download directory, anywhere you want but please, make a backup). RENAME LGSearchWidgetProviderTerminal.apk to LGSearchWidgetProvider.apk and follow the procedure below.
I use ES File Explorer and simply copy the file from my download directory, navigate to /system/app and then paste the new LGSearchWidgetProvider.apk and overwrite what's there. Next you MUST change permissions to rw-, r--, r-- and reboot. If you don't reboot, you'll find you're missing the search widget altogether. If you don't see the widget, you forgot reboot or you forgot to set the permissions.

Font Install Procedure:
Root Required, make a backup of /system/fonts directory to be safe (Font Installer allows you to do this through the app)
Install Font Installer (or similar) from Play Store (link above) and replace Roboto with Clacon or similar terminal-style font.
Reboot

Alternate technique to install font, replace Roboto.ttf in /system/fonts through ES File Explorer, Root Explorer, etc, or ADB push
Reboot

Install Instructions:

Download APK file to your phone
Open downloads folder through file manager of your choice
Install the APK (do not bother "opening" as there is nothing to open)
Once installed, exit out of your file manager and go back to your homescreen
Push the menu button and select "theme"
Select the theme
If there is interest, I might create more themes and get them into the Play Store. Please provide feedback (go easy on me) but make sure to include phone model as these should work on any LG Home3 launcher:

Thanks guys! These do take a little time to put together so I was thinking of doing some paid and some free. Perhaps the free version would offer a handful of icons and the paid version having a bunch.

What do you think? Would you be down for, say, $1 a piece?

Any suggestions on theme concepts?

How much can you actually do with the theme? Just icons and wallpaper for app drawer and homescreen?

Icons, wallpaper, and homescreen menus. I'm looking into if I can do more with the sdk, the theming app is pretty limited.

You can also theme the LG widgets and the status bar background and set the font. See @RocketSauce83's thread here for examples. It would be cool if they allow for more. I have not tried making one yet but I wonder how hard it would be to add to the list of apps that the theme applies icons to automatically on the homescreen and app drawer... It would be great to have a theme template that we could just add icons from icon packs to and have more or most icons themed without the user having to set each one.
