Default Convert any QVGA M2D theme to VGA -- Themes are here--

[/B]As M2D has now been successfuly ported on VGA devices, many VGA device users are willing to have VGA themes. We already have a huge collection of beautiful M2D themes for QVGA, but nothing for VGA.
Luckily I managed to convert these to VGA with few simle steps, which I want to share with the community as a little contribution from my side.

What you need to have:

1. M2D VGA pre-istalled in your device
2. QVGA theme "zip" file (Any M2D theme you want to convert in VGA)
3. Throttle Theme Rescale Tool (Attached)
(Please note that this useful tool is developed by APBilbo for throttle launcher & it works perfect for any theme as it accurately resizes the PNG files from QVGA to VGA. So all credit for this goes to him)
4. HTCHomesettings.xml for VGA (attached)

What you need to do :

1. Unzip the QVGA theme content in a new folder
2. Use theme rescaling tool on this new folder. This will resize all PNG file in this folder to fit your VGA screen.
3. Replace the HTCHome settings.xml file in the folder with the one attached.
4. Zip the folder & copy in your device
5. Add and install the theme with M2DC

------------You are done ! Enjoy the theme of your choice -----------------

Note : The 3rd attachment is a beautiful theme converted from QVGA to VGA which you can directly install & check before you start converting other themes. All credit for this theme goes to the designer of the original QVGA theme.

nlohani you are the best!

I like the Manila2D UIR a lot. I use it now for 2 months and it's very good even aon a device with only 128MB RAM.

I'm going to check your posted method after I reflashed my device. Thanks for clarifying how to do it. I will post my Q here if I have any

Glad that you find it useful. M2D is definetly the coolest UI I have come across. Was missing it badly when I switched to DX900 from ZINC (QVGA to VGA device).

If you want (and if this is OK with the original designers), we can post our converted themes here in this thread to share with all.

I had installed on MS820 but it takes lots of ROM memory and i m left with 10Mb only. This starts freezing my phone. Is there any thing i need to take care, as i m installing in device memory.

Can you list down what all programs you have installed from M2D package?
Try installing programs like 'google maps', 'youtube' etc in storage card instead of main memory.
