Right guys,
As you know it, Themer doesn't display Themes on 1280x800, 800x1280, 1920x1200, 1200x1920, 600x1024 and 1024x600 resolutions !
I found a working way to display Themer Themes on these displays.
Maybe the tips have been posted ago, sorry for double posting then.

Don't Blame if your tablet become unusable, It's your fault NOT mine

What you need :
- Adb or Terminal Emulator
- 3rd Party Softkeys (I used well known PIE Controls)
- A third party launcher since stock launcher cause SystemUI FC (I used Nova Launcher)
- 2 Minutes of your LIFE

Let's get started.

Before you start, add these line to your build.prop

Code:
qemu.hw.mainkeys=0


For Android 4.1.x and Android 4.2.x :

Via Adb :


Code:
cd c:/
cd adb (or wherever you have adb)
adb shell
su
am display-density 240
am display-size 720x1280 (example Nexus 7)
or

Code:
 wm display-density 240
wm display-size 720x1280
exit (to exit shell)
adb reboot


Via Terminal Emulator :

Code:
su
am display-density 240
am display-size 720x1280
or

Code:
 wm display-density 240
wm display-size 720x1280
reboot


For Android 4.3 and Above:

Via Adb:

Code:
cd c:/
cd adb
adb shell
su
wm density 240
wm size 720x1280
or

Code:
 am density 240
am size 720x1280
exit
adb reboot


Via Terminal Emulator :

Code:
su
wm density 240
wm size 720x1280
or

Code:
 am density 240
am size 720x1280
reboot


Softkeys/Navbars still here ?

use
Code:
qemu.hw.mainkeys=1
in build.prop instead. (just change 0 with 1 )

Don't want to hide Softkeys/Nav bars ?

Try this, However SystemUI may FC whatever you use a 3rd Party Launcher or NO !
To keep navbars, use "1184x768" resolution (aka Nexus 4 resolution with Softkeys) instead.

Screenshots :

Nothing here so far

I no longer have the Nexus 7, so please do post screenshots in replies if it's working for you !


That's it,
Hope you like it

Regards,
Nonta

Yeah I discovered that am and wm are to be used alone (without display) so that it can work on Android 4.3 and above.
