Default [SKN] Black n Blue Grill Sense/CHT2/Resco/S2U2/Swype - Dialer cab fixed(Dec 22)

I thought I would share my current theme/skin in case anyone wants at least a part of it. I'm currently using an NRG Rom for my Tilt2 so the sense icons started with that general theme. It bugs me when all my icons do not match, so I skinned several programs that I use all the time so that everything flows well together. I should mention that some of these skins (power radio and thumbcal for example) may be WVGA only.

Update: Dialer cabs now available in post #3 - not sure if Leo cab is answer for HD2 dialer canvas problems - let me know(Dec 22)
Update: CHT2 Icons cab file in post #3 (Dec 3)
Update: New wallpapers for WVGA CHT2 in post #3 (Nov 15)
Update: Added blue highlight selection bar to phone skin zipped file in second post (Nov 9)
Update: Phone skin zipped file added to second post (Nov 7)
Update: Sense Icons, Comm Manager, Notification Icons, and Phone skin download link added to second post (Nov 6)
Update: Taskbar and Swype added to second post (Nov 4)

Look at the bottom of the first 4 posts for the attached cab/zipped files. Also the Earth and sun and moon wallpaper you see on the S2U2 screen shot is in the wallpaper.zip file.

My taskbar is a modified version of the m6silver color taskbar so most of the credit goes to him for that. I've changed the notification icons to match the sense theme I'm using. You will also notice that I use a couple of dusk images (like several graphics in the S2U2 theme and the Clock Background for Sense) and I don't want to take credit for that. If I have used someone elses icons, I don't want to take credit for them so let me know. I have worked a lot to make most of my own icons. I haven't really made most of the graphics, I have just pulled them from the web and converted them for the program images. I'm not a graphic artist.

The action screen is configured for some of the apps I use so it may not work for you. You can always visit the thread learn how to update the registry yourself.

I'm always open to suggestions and comments. I'm not really satisfied with the contact sense icon. I don't really like the orange background on the picture in the contact card. I'm looking for a better solution on that one. Also if anyone know how to skin the system icons on the notification screen, I'd like to know.

I've attached some screen shots and I will start putting together the cab files for the installs. It seems that I keep changing and updating the theme until I get it completely right.

psShutXP(also replaces the long press power button) / Thumbcal / Resco File Explorer / S2U2


CHT Forelayer / CHT Icons / Action Screen / Power Radio



I have made a lot of realize type icons that are rounded iphone looking. If anyone is interested, I will post those as well. Here's a couple of screen shots:




Also, standard disclaimer - don't hold me responsible if something goes wrong with your phone.

Here's the forelayer skins I use. See this thread for more information on the new CHT feature.

Also, I had to split the Swype skin into portrait and landscape because the file was to big too add. Plus not everybody needs landscape.

The Finger Keyboard skin is for this keyboard program.

The cab for the phone skin is too big so here's a download link. If the cab file isn't working (it doesn't seem to work for me either for some reason - anyone know why), I was able to copy the files in the attached zipped folder and use total commander or resco explorer to copy from my SD card to my windows folder. Give that a try. I should mention that I haven't fixed the graphics for the Landscape skin. I don't ever use the phone in landscape, but I might work on after I get everything else fixed. If you do copy over the files, I would make a backup of those files - especially the phcanimages.dll. Also, I don't even know which dialer is technically in the NRG ROM and for right now I don't have the VGA version done yet. I want to get the WVGA landscape done first.

The Sense Icons are all the icons that I updated from the standard Energy ROM theme. So some of them I haven't changed. If you need all the slider icons I can provide those as well. Just let me know.

Let me know if any of the cabs aren't working. I'm having trouble getting the phone dialer skin to work with cab install.


Sense icons and tabs

I've attached a cab for the Co0kie Home Tab 2.0 icon set. It also changes the icons in the CHT Editor as well. I'll be skinning the CHT scheduler here soon as well.

SUCCESS!! I've fixed a cab for the dialer. I think I have one for those having problems on the HD2. Try the cab and let me know.

Here's some new WVGA wallpapers I put together. Mostly Sci-Fi ones including the Wide (for CHT2), Portrait, and Landscape versions. The zipped file is very large so I uploaded it to 4shared. Some of these I pulled from XDA but I forget where. Others I pulled from the web and resized for my WVGA device.

Smile Excellent Work

Your theme for CHT2 is very good.
By the way, can you provide a link to the taskbar in you snapshots.

Here's the link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=653881

I have modified some of the icons and will post my version a little later. I've changed things like wifi, the phone icon, voicemail, and even the default folder icons to the black ones pictured in the resco explorer snap shot. I'm still putting together all the cab files.

I see people are downloading the Resco skin. I realized that I didn't skin all the buttons for the bottom. I just did the ones I use. I might look into skinning the other buttons as well, but there are a lot of buttons. I first will put together all the cab files for the other skins.

Nice choice of songs! I so want to get this thing up and running! Had to replace my Imagio, wife thinks it was the custom ROM with 1.8.5 on it that caused it to die. Soon I hope, soon!

Very nice job as well, this really looks great!
