The thing is, I'm not really too concerned with the appearance part of things, so the look of a theme doesn't matter that much to me. What I am mainly trying to accomplish is getting the old smaller, compacted system/context menus that we used to have on 6.1.
For example when you're in email (Pocket Outlook) viewing your list of messages, and you want to check for new mail, you hit the "menu" button and then select "Send/Receive". It's that menu I'm talking about. On the old OS version you could see all items on the screen at once, but with the new finger friendly 6.5, you have to scroll up and down to get to various items, such as Send/Receive.
That's the only thing I'm trying to change: getting those old menus back. And currently applying a 6.1 theme is the only way I know of doing so, but it also messes up the bottom menu bar under 6.5.3. So I'm hoping to either find another, easier way of restoring those old menus, or finding a fixed/tweaked 6.1 theme that doesn't mess up the menu bar on 6.5.3.
