For all that are unfamiliar with BUUF, it is a set of icons made for the desktops. Hopefully i recreated this experience to our beloved Android. All icons are courtesy of its creator Mattahan, the battery was supplied by Mr. Stylo and the clock was made by Rontz. Everything else by me 8) I really hope you guys enjoy this as I have put in quite a lot of time. Up to date we have 550+ icons changed in this theme and these pics really dont reflect the extensive amount of makeover it has gone through. I want to thank Stericson for giving the community and myself a great new hobby. Necromancer for his ubuntu theme which inspired me and everyone should go d/l it 8) Last but not least, Dave the illest for originally supplying the update.zip and the tools necessary to create my first release. Latest build is built from the ground up. If you use any of my icons go right ahead as long as you give me credit 8)
2/25 Well here is the final. I must say it's been quite the journey. past couple of weeks I haven't been able to work on it due to partying, but now it's finally upon us. I took the time to go over all the icons from previous builds and reedit them in Photoshop for better quality. On top of that there are maybe over an extra 100 icons that were changed in maps and various other places. There are just too many to name. There will be the usual color variations and pull up bars to come with it since there has been a request to bring back the lil green guy. From here on out, i will only make small changes if there is a huge request to change certain things. My concentration now will go towards updating popular app icons from market. I'm looking at maybe 10 or so at the moment as it's just too time consuming to make everyone's requests happen. I also suggest that users use BetterCut if you're so inclined to change your own icons. This theme will now go slowly towards adp1 hopefully and any future updates that Jesusfreak releases. As usual please read the rest of the post to learn how to install. Now.....onto my new theme....It's a secret 8)
2/8 make sure you update to Jf rc33 LITE before applying my theme. This will take out all the stock ring tones and notification tones to allow my theme to install. go to market and d/l ringdroid & ringextended to use new or old tones. the link included is provided by jdwme. all credit goes to him for editing and supplying it. go go happy testing
edit: seems like some people still have issues with install, make sure your installing a fresh rc33 light update - that means no apps to sd card or whatever modification you have done. I noticed before that i removed amazon from the phone via terminal before another theme update and it did cause my phone to loop. so it is very important that you install the rc33 lite without any modifications. Keep it stock prior to the update. then proceed with the regular theme install routine.
also for people wondering what the diff. is with all these colors. these were done via requests from users through out the beta. the status bar is changed as well as certain pull down and menu screens are changed as well. currently blue has the most significant change amongst them while the others are subltle. the creme update is the original status bar that i created back in 1.0.
The reduced versions had all the png's in our phone reduced in size so that this theme may fit onto our phone. The quality of the icons are not lost, just bloated data is removed. This doesnt cause any problems to the phone and might actually make the phone run a lil snappier 8) I released Stericson's update file with all these icons reduced for theme makers to use. I also think Stericson maybe adding it in his stickied thread so check there as well.
edit: the new blue has ever single icon in our phone reduced in size, with it i was able to include more wallpapers. Brown, dark brown and creme to follow
reduced updates will have the new terminal, voice dialer and search icon.
