This is the old thread and so it is outdated.
Move on to the new thread for Co0kie's Home tab 1.7 and more!

This thread is abandoned because Kamill and me decided to stop the theme.
Fortunately there are some members willing to help continue the theme. A big thanks to them!

In collaboration with Kamill, we present you a Sense 2.5 Theme...[/size]

HTC has gone wrong. The nice clean look on the first versions of Manila has been abandoned.
The clean icons have been replaced by disorderly icons, in every color of the rainbow. Grey turned into color.
The evolvement of the interface itself was good, but the designers began to imitate Samsung.

GTX Sense is – what I think – the way HTC should design. I am not saying they should make a white theme, but that fancy flashing stuff is everything except eyecandy.
The design of this theme is mainly inspired by and the ZuneHD. The clean look of those interfaces is just excellent.

It’s been a hard job to get everything working. It was not only graphics work, but also a lot of scripts needed to be enhanced.
That’s where I want to thank Kamill for his help in this project. He has been a good friend, and it was a pleasure to work with him.

I also want to thank the beta testers, and Chainfire for making the best Manila editor app out there: CFCGui.

Co0kieMonster's Home Tab Mod is included by default, and I'd like to thank him for the great mod!

I'd like to thank the GTX Sense Beta Team for all the support and patience!
Finally, I’d like to thank Longice, bl4ckb1rd, and everyone who has supported us!

Go to post #2 for download!

If you have a question to another user, please use the PM system.

Give something back! You must understand how much we appreciate any donation, it shows us that we aren't making this theme for nothing.

A big thanks to those who have donated!

[PRJ][PREV][THE] Manila 2.5 Theme [W|VGA]

These are the following add-ons, some of them will be available later:

You can find the downloads in the attachments below.

The recommended Sense version is 2.5.2012. You'll need to flash a ROM with Manila 2.5.2012 to get this latest version.
Version 2.5.1921 and 1922 are also supported, but they have some minor bugs.
You might be a bit dissapointed by the combination of your own taskbar and the theme. The taskbar shown in the screenshots will be finished soon.

Looks nice. I will see it when it's finished. But the background is a little bit boring. I'm curious!

I think a bit of colour would be good,

O2 Blue
T-Mobile Pink
Yodaphone Red
Orange Orange

not bonkers, just a splash

Well it's meant to be professional, not childish. The design needs to be very simple but still beautiful. Thank you guys for the feedback!

very great design, i really like it

i think you need to make it adaptive to different wallpapers without being ugly or childish

the clock need some change since i belive once we switch to another background, the clock wont be seen clearly

at least make it adaptive to both black and white backgrounds
