Default [INFO] Xperia theme engine - new possibilities

I just got information that confirms thing I asked Sony months ago...

"The question was - why don't you add navigation bar settings to your firmwares?
Just the basic ones - size and number of buttons/icons."

I received a answer - we are working on something similar.
(That's not exact words but it was something like that)

Now we have this (in latest firmware)


If we get changeable navigation bar in stock ROMs I won't (maybe) even need to root my device.

We have enough space for apps so I just hide those I don't need or don't want them in app drawer.

Maybe they add options to hide app icons in drawer...
Obviously, they are listening community (I don't think they listened me only of course) and working on great and important things and features in firmwares...

If we find a way to root LBL devices it'll be really interesting to build new themes which could be changed and adapted by end user simply going to settings....

Awesome...

Sorry because I opened new thread but I'm so excited they add this and can't wait to build new theme with few nav bar icons set you'll be able to choose from.

Disregard the colors (thats gravitybox which requires root but fairly sure you can do this directly anyway. This is the Nightcity theme which has different navbar icons

Obviously, you didn't get what I wanna say.
All those option could be, and most likely will be, changed by user.
Just like we could make a theme that will "aks you " which wallpaper would you like yo use (I built many themes that way) we'll be able to choose nav bar, colors and other elements.

We themers could add five different navigation bar icons in theme so end user will pick one of those icon set.

Now you can build theme to ask for a wallpaper


You'll (probably) have similar window to choose navigation bar icons.
