Talking [SKIN][TASKBAR][W|Q|VGA][WM6.1|6.5|6.5.x] BLUdroid TASKBAR [5May2010]: WHITEdroid!!!

Here it is! Inspired by Dark Ninja's Android Taskbar, in cooperation with dandnj, we give you the





----------------------------------------------------------------


FURTHER DEVELOPMENT DISCONTINUED.

This taskbar thread will no longer be maintained as I've moved up to HTC Desire. I'm really sorry that you guys hoping for more editions won't have your dreams come true. But anyone who'd like to continue the maintenance are free to do so as long as you PM me first and get permission to do so.



----------------------------------------------------------------


Read about this taskbar in the article by [ElCondor] right HERE!






Supports VGA, QVGA and WVGA!
Supports WM 6.1, 6.5 and 6.5.x!


Along with this great taskbar theme follows this awesome wait cursor by Dark Ninja:




NEW BLUcursor wait cursor released for some versions:





Installation process:

1. SDKCerts must be installed first or this will not work! Download HERE
2. Find you Windows version (6.1, 6.5 or 6.5.X).
3. Find your resolution (QVGA or (W)VGA).
4. Download your preferred version of the taskbar and install.
5. Soft reset.
6. Install Volume Control hotfix (if needed).
7. Soft reset.




Volume Control issues?

If you're having trouble with Volume Control icon or buttons doing funny things, download THIS and install the correct fix for your version (19XX or 20XX).

If that doesn't work, you can try download and install THIS cab.



Different battery versions:

There are three different versions of the taskbar:
- Plain battery: This is like in the screenshots above: Just a plain battery with an icon that is updated every 5 %. It looks like this:
- Internal battery percentagee: This displays your current battery percentage status inside the battery. It looks like this:
- Black battery percentage: This displays your current battery percentage status above the battery in black text. It looks like this:



Themes:
- For the grey background theme in the screenshots, download THIS THEME (mirror), copy it to your device, run it and select it in Today settings.
- You can download Dark Ninja White WM 6.5 theme for white taskbar background. Also recommended is the colour patch which will change taskbar text colour to black.
- The white Sense theme is the beautiful work of Kamill and ElCondor. You'll find Sense GTX theme HERE.
- This does not skin your Sense highlights (the number of unread e-mails etc.). Blue highlights are thanks to henk2484.



Thanks to:
Dark Ninja for a great Android Taskbar!
dandnj for alot of help with the graphics!



If you are experiencing issues, please provide information about your WM version, Sense version, what cab(s) you tried installing and what ROM you are using.



Disclaimer: Although the installation of this mod should be completely safe, I take no responsibility in any harm that it might do to your device!

Thanks!

Do you mean a Sense theme or a WM theme? There is a WM theme attached to the first post which IMO looks great with the taskbar. And as for Sense, I think nothing beats GTX!

Hmm, strange. Try again now. I've resigned all files and updated the cab.
