(aka yet another NON hero based theme)
(aka a theme that doesn't 'borrow' from other themes)
by Prash

(flash only the version compatible with your rom - Check second post for links to other roms)
Screenshots (some of these are from 4.0.4 version of the theme, check latest posts for newer screenshots in thread)

AlienAqua is a theme based on the Alien Aqua icon set. I had started this theme back on RC33 but always had put it off since I was trying to find the right wallpapers and images to go with it. Finally after finishing SystemForce I decided to take up this project again. There is apparently a AlienAqua based skin for aHome already but this is in no way connected to that. I haven't really even seen what it looks like.

-Note: If you flash from a theme with the new lockscreen, you may get force closes randomly on various apps and crashes. To fix this you must flash the CM ROM over again to replace all the files the lockscreen themes change and then flash my theme on top of the rom. This is just how the theme templates are set up, it does not replace all the leftover files.

(Flash the default CM Rom theme template FIRST to get a fresh install if you are coming from a different theme, flashing on top of other themes could cause issues unrelated to my theme)

CyanogenMod Stable Rom

AlienAqua Metamorph

CM default template (in case anything goes wrong, flash this to get you back to as it was before)

(Note: This version does not include any of the google apps [legal], you may have to use the icon set from the extras to match everything.) (57 Icons and 11 wallpapers, use them as you'd like.)



-AquaAlien v0.5 ++ - 0.5 version of the theme + AdvancedLauncher u17 + BetterBrowser v1.4.3 -ONLY FOR CM 4.0.4(thanks JDuverge)


THEMED EXTRA APPS - (May not work with latest!)

-Advanced Launcher v2.1 - AAThemed by JDuverge (DONUT ONLY - check Advanced Launcher thread on installation info)
-Advanced Launcher u17 - AAThemed by JDuverge (check Advanced Launcher thread on installation info)
-Loccy's BetterBrowser v1.4.3 - AAThemed by JDuverge (check BetterBrowser thread for install info)
-HTC Music - AAThemed by JDuverge (check HTC Music thread for install info)

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I install the extra icons?
-Simply unzip the extras zip file somewhere on your sdcard, use an app such as 'bettercut' to set your icons manually. I will be changing some of the system icons to ones I like, so you can use this to change it as well.

How do I use the extra wallpapers?
-I do include the default main wallpaper in the wallpapers gallery but also offer 3 extras in the extra .zip file I included above. To use this put them in /wallpapers/ folder of your sdcard and use an app like 'wallpaper set & save' to set as wallpaper. Or just use android gallery and install from anywhere on your sdcard.
