MiniCM7 themes

MiniCM7 Theme

Inspired by MiniCM6's theme colours

Designed according to official 2.3.3 Gingerbread design guidelines

Build on t-mobile's theme engine (whole theme is an .apk, does not affect system theme)


MiniCM7 theme is an exclusive part of MiniCM7 rom.
MiniCM7 rom supports only X10 mini(E10) and X8(E15) for now so every other rom that is "based", or using parts of MiniCM7,
should NOT use this theme.
The creation/design of this theme is my personal tribute to this rom (and also its trademark), so it would be a great sign
of respect if it wasn't distributed with any other rom.




OrangeHaze Theme


Each theme's wallpaper can be found under the launcher's "Wallpaper" selection. Search there in case you've changed it and want to rollback.

MiniCM7 theme and OrangeHaze are based in a common template i made so from this version, their changelog is common.
