Before getting started I need to thank some people who have hlped me with this project or offered help to me. These people can be seen as contributors to this project, and I am grateful for their help.

Contributors:
JesusFreke
Manup465
Necromancer


Major thanks to Manup465 as he provided the status bar, the bottom notification bar, and the app bar used in one of the backgrounds. Thanks alot for your help Manup465!

Major thanks to Necromancer as he came up with the idea of replacing the fonts on the phone, between the two of use we were able to do it! Thanks alot man!

Also, before we get started, you will need root, and Jesusfreke's Mod rc30 installed(1.3), Mod ADP1(Actually, I would think that this would work on the default ADP), or Mod RC8(1.3) MAKE SURE IT'S V1.3!!!.

THIS COULD BRICK YOUR PHONE!

While I highly doubt it will, it still could!
If you are going to do this, I very highly URGE you to install the G1 engineering bootloader. With this installed, if something does go wrong, your phone is salvageable!

JesusFreke's Mod RC30 update V1.3:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=466174
G1 Engineering bootloader: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=455860

With all that said an done I can get rid of that bold font.

This is a very simple process thanks to Jesusfreke helping me understand how to make an update.zip file which will work with his mod rc30 update.

Simply download the file, place it on your sdcard, boot your phone into the recovery mode(power+home), and hit alt+S.

Once it says its done, reboot the phone and enjoy!

Let me know if you run into any problems at all!
Let me know what you want to see in the next release, be reasonable I'm not a master image maker, and android does some strange things to some images.
Let me know if something seems out of place, or wrong.

I will try to resolve all issues as quick as I can.



Take a look at the pictures!
This theme comes with both the standard wallpaper shown and the wallpaper with the app bar provided by Manup465. These wallpapers are in the wallpaper gallery.

Besides the obvious visual differences, what else has changed or been modified/fixed/etc? I think i like your other theme better, and if there is little or nothing changed behind the scenes i think ill stick with it. Great work though guys, another original looking theme!

For anyone having ANY issues flashing the phone (or if you freeze up).


Take the card out and use an adaptor (or at least this is how I did it) to install JF's new 1.3 version for the phone...

Once you do that, just reboot and then install the theme as shown above. Just did it and it looks AWESOME

Anyones device who froze at the g1 screen I believe the problem was that you run out of space on the device, causing some programs from getting flashed over, which would cause your phone not to boot. Installing JF's rc30 V1.3 fixes this by drastically increasing /systems free space.
