Thanks to some very knowledgeable people on this site, I finally managed to complete the inverted Sense mod that I started on ICS!
I also decided to address the blue/green imbalance and convert the leftover green stuff to HTC JB blue, again for a more unified feel.
In particular, I owe thanks to
Il Duce and steal25 for giving us a compilable com.htc.resources.apk
joeyfettucine for invaluable advice
mwilky for advice and assistance
fichl for helping me to keep the theme up to date with later versions of ViperX
Rooted XHDPI device running Sense 4+
Custom recovery (works with TWRP and CWM)
ROM based on 3.14.401.31 - should work with any rom, stock or custom, as long as it's rooted
So far only tested on One X, but in theory should work on any Sense 4.5 device.
If you try it on any other device, please let me know if it worked.
Main bug is that this will only work with the default HTC skin. There are certain UI elements that get overwritten by custom skins, so they will need adapting for inverted Sense -- more on that in post 2
You may get odd glitches when using 3rd party apps. Unfortunately this is unavoidable since I can't control where they draw their images/resources from
Any others, please let me know!

Okay, as stated above, this mod will not work properly with custom skins, due to the changed text colours. They will need to be adapted to work properly. Sorry, I know that's a pain, but we can blame HTC for that.
To try and minimise the pain, I have documented which images / xmls in the skin apk need to edited to fit with this mod. Attached to this post is a mod pack, which contains the required xml and png edits to make any skin compatible with the inverted com.htc.resources. Let me know if I missed anything, I will add it in.
EDIT: Have uploaded a revised version of the inversion mod pack. The original one had a few unnecessary images - thanks to my teammate AJ for tidying that up for me
I will try and keep a list here of compatible custom skins, so please let me know in the thread or by PM if you have adapted your skin, and I will add it to this post.
