The Honeycomb 3D Project

Description:
A fully colored, "eye candy" style Honeycomb theme for all Android/cm7 devices with the new Theme Chooser application. This theme is based off bypass's aosp 3.0 ROM port and hax's "templatebread" with every stock gingerbread menu/settings/widget/app/status bar icon replaced with high-resolution 3D images from Honeycomb, Sense, MIUI, UOT, XDA and Google.

3 versions now on the market:
-Blue 3D icons: https://market.android.com/details?i...e.theme.hc3d3d
-3D icons w/ mock soft buttons: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.mike.hc3dsb
-Tablet version: market link

I have spent hundreds of hours throughout the last few months perfecting this theme and its still far from being finished, but I've recently started working with zexcrazy (the creator of "Animated Eye Candy") who has done a ton of work helping me recompile the theme, fix the xml/.9 pngs, and optimize the files for mdpi; bkmo who has been compiling everything on linux and creating the new dialer, lockscreen, thin blue volume sliders, call screen and zipthemer addons; jjhiza who is creating the mock Honeycomb widgets, dock icons and homescreen layout; and nbeebe24 who got the xml files working for 1% battery increments. Without the incredible amount of free time these guys have dedicated to help me out, this theme wouldnt be anywhere near the level its currently at. I would also like to thank the entire Yoshi team who has been helping out by testing beta releases and giving advice when I get stuck, and haxzamatic for providing the template and guides for the new theme engine

If you like our work all I ask is you hit the "thanks" button after downloading and don't forget zexcrazy, bkmo, jjhiza, nbeebe, haxzamatic, shiwantha, yoshi, and bypass/nforce/google for the honeycomb port (where I got most of the images from). Send me a pm if you want to be added to the list or join the project on github, I'm welcome to anybody who wants to help the team make new additions or improvements And feedback is definitely appreciated because I know not everyone has the time (or desire) to figure out the theme engine. But even one icon or suggestion could make a huge difference so feel free to send ideas my way

[B]Screenshots:

Tablet version:

Installation:
*Read carefully*

1.download latest theme apk from the market:
-Blue 3D icons: https://market.android.com/details?i...e.theme.hc3d3d
-3D icons w/ mock soft buttons: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.mike.hc3dsb
-Tablet version: market link
(Will install as separate versions)
-More colors coming soon

2. Open theme Chooser app and apply honeycomb 3D. The theme engine might say there's assets missing for your device but its lying. Hit that "apply anyways" button with your middle finger

*If the theme isn't showing up at all, your rom most likely came with the latest version of the theme Chooser app preinstalled and its has been having issues, so try scrolling between the themes slowly with your trackball and if that doesnt work, or if your rom didnt include the theme chooser app, here is a link for the apk that can be installed using any app installer: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22147062/ThemeChooser.apk ***

4. Reboot and start looking through your new mini-tablet

5. Don't forget the hc3D extras zip and bkmo's new zipthemer/metamorph lockscreen, volume sliders, and themed reboot popups for mdpi! (see links below)

Instructions for addons:
Here's the zip file that includes all latest bkmods, jjhiza's widgets+dock icons, several new honeycomb wallpapers, all stock HC/3.0 app icons (for ppl who like those better than the blue tinted ones in the theme), the 3.0 music player port, maxthon (which is very similar to 3.0's browser), a honeycomb bootanimation, bootanimationutility.apk (for easily switching to new bootanimations), and a battery calibration app that I strongly suggest you install if experiencing any battery drain issues (completely unrelated to the theme but its a small apk so it doesn't really hurt)

1. Download the following file and extract its contents to your SD card or computer:http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22147062/hc3D%20Extras2.zip (5/18 update: latest zipthemer morphs; added more wallpapers, widgets, and icons)

*The current hc3D addons zip is about 13mb whereas bk's zip is only .5mb, so if space is an issue you can download bk's latest zipthemer/metamorph zip separately here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22147062/hc3d-mdpi-morph-26.zip
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22147062/HC3...i-morph-21.zip
and you can find the rest separately on xda or send me a pm *

2.For bk's themed lockscreen, reboot popup, and volume sliders download one of the two above links, and apply only the files in HC3D-lckmorph-mdpi-26/hdpi-21.zip to your rom framework by using zipthemer or metamorph. If you have never done this before or need instructions, see this post by Dont Panic: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...64&postcount=3

3. (ADW, LP, GO launcher): Long-press each of your dock icons and press edit, then select your desired app shortcut/action and icon from the gallery.

4. For jjhiza's widgets/icons you will need to use the "desktop visualizer" app temporarily while we are working on incorporating them into the theme. Separate DL zip: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22147062/JJH%20HC%20Layout.zip
For detailed instructions and original files see this thread by jjhiza: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6#post13248666

5. Honeycomb wallpapers can be applied from homescreen *located in gallery (wallpapers folder) after unzipping hc3Dextras2 file*

6. Install the Google 3.0 music player apk with any app installer

7.BootAnimation.apk and BatteryCalibration.apk can also be installed using app installer if you want or need them Do not unzip the bootanimation, just use that app tool or swap using root explorer.

8. Some nice transparent and blue market, gmail, facebook apks thread can be found here:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=877510

To do List:
-Optimize for HDPI
-Add remaining menu popup icons
-improve 3.0 UI
-add rest of themed apps/widgets
-Touch-up images
-add honeycomb keyboard layout
-

Its still a work in progress but more is being added on a daily basis, and again, please feel free to make suggestions (especially now while we're still adding icons). V3 will be done in a few weeks with full colored menu icons as well as a blue version (and maybe other colors when the theme is complete) for those who like the current blue icons like I do And if you want to make modifications, send me a pm and Ill see about adding them to the theme or OP! I am also currently looking for more devs with experience in xml or the theme engine to incorporate some bigger changes, so if you have time and are interested in joining the team let me know!

this theme would be incredible if it didnt have all those huge icons in the settings screen and the add to home screen window. also the icons in the status bar are a bit strange too, nothing seems to fit properly. running on a htc hero [MDPI]

Thanks for the feedback, I've been thinking about downsizing the settings icons from 48x48 to 32x32 so that should hopefully solve the first problem. As for the status bar I'm still selecting new icons and matching up colors, so if u see any that look out of place let me know now while I'm changing them, or if u see any icons online that look better send them my way

This is actually a common issue with the most recent version of the Theme Chooser. You can replace it with a working version by installing the theme chooser apk i provided in the op, but some people have been able to get it working by using the trackball to slowly scroll between themes and the name will show up. We didn't add a preview picture yet tho because it needs to be done on Linux for them to work on all devices. Just try scrolling between between the themes first and if that doesn't work install the previous version of theme chooser
