Screen Shots **screens from IOLITE v2 shown!** (home screen features the background and the clock/plugin item backgrounds included in the "glossier home tab bgs.zip" attached):
things to know... READ! (for v2)
.....added support for multiple calendar items (moved clock up, moved date to where the operator text is (when you enable custom name, disable operator name -by m2dc or registry)
.....changed map search graphic (added a little google icon)
.....skinned settings page
.....moved the email values/changed email graphic slightly
.....moved unread icons so they arent covering SMS and MAIL text
.....skinned commmanager (see first post - not included in m2d zip) (iolite version should work with older m2d versions too.. but i havent tested.. so if you have problems, just use v1 for older versions)
..IF YOU ARE USING GLOSSY BACKGROUND, ALSO USE THE GLOSSY FOCUS.png included in the glossier home tabs zip (copy it to your \windows) this is the background that shows up (or disables the bg from changing) when you hold down too long on sms view etc)
things to know... READ! (v1)
..you do NOT have to have a different background for the home tab.. if you DO want it, it is included in the "glossier home tab bgs.zip" as "hh_fw_backgroundhome.png" (you can move it wherever, or delete the "home" portion and copy it to your windows directory to use it throughout m2d!) ..the page icons (big icons when running your finger across the bottom) are glossy, just like the earth icon and opera icon you see.. all custom by me! ..this can be and should be used with m2dc
..i recommend changing the font sizes of calendar and missed call buttons to about 20 for missed call and 14/16 for calendar in m2dc
..the weather icons are stardock icons (GREAT! icons), I manually switched out HTC's for stardock's (that took a while..)
.....if you would prefer glossier home tab clock background and plugin background.. copy the files attached in "glossier home tab bgs.zip" to your windows or into the "htctoucher gloss m2d.zip" windows folder if you are using it with m2dc!.. **the clock and plugin background are included by default in v2 iolite version!** (i suggest you all do so! -its shown in the preview-) ALSO
.....if you would prefer to have little icons instead of the text in the slider on the bottom, download the .zip attached "tabicons.zip" and copy all icons to your windows folder on device (overwrite) or to the windows folder in the gloss m2d skin zip if you are using my skin with m2dc (thank fwaits for requesting this as part of his 1request for being a member of my Golden List!) .....in my opinion i think it looks good to have text as the inactive tabs, and icons as the active tabs.. if you would like this.. only use the icons in the tabicons.zip that have the words "tabicon" in them!
attached also is the tsk you see in the previews (should be anyway)
......just unzip the tsk file into your storage card or wherever, and load it in the home settings on your device!
......i also suggest installing uitweaker and then going into systweak and import the "final color.sys" file also included blends well with this theme
due to lack of space on the first post, thumbcal, taskfacade and fingermenu skins are also attached! (my taskfacade skin is included as default in the new version of taskfacade! (see here)) - so i guess you wont have to download the theme here anymore
Thumbcal: (skin.htctoucher gloss v2.zip) - place it in your thumbcal folder and select it in settings
FingerMenu: (htctoucher fingermenu gloss skin.cab) - install to device.. you can delete the _vga files if you are using qvga device, or vice versa... just reinstall my cab if you want them back (dont know why you would but just in case)
**removed** (my skins are now included default in taskfacade as "Gloss")!
uploaded three more skins for taskfacade, will remove if they also become default
