Well, after some work and learning, I give to you a theme that is loaded with blue. Blue is EVERYWHERE!!

I really didn't change icons or two many images. I mainly just made all orange / yellow hints blue, and added blue hints to everything. My aim is to make a completely unified blue theme on the base cyanogenmod rom. The theme also has glossy blue bars on the launcher. Screenshots below....

INFORMATION:
TheDude came up with an overlay to theme components of cyanogenmod at build time. After working with him on the overlay, this theme has been built with it. That means this theme is a complete rom, with my theme all happily integrated.

I have themed only what comes default in the rom. I have not added any extra apps or tweaked anything. It really is the stock rom turned really blue.

Proprietary Notes:
I have themed only what comes default in source. I have not themed any proprietary applications. If there is an app that you would like themed, please point me to the source repo, and I will see what I can do about making an addon containing it.

32A / EBI1 Notes:
bcrook maintains 32A / EBI1 kernels.
Download the correct kernel from here
The kernels are bs-version-ebi1-signed.zip

Downloads:
You can download the themes here.

**More coming soon**

Testing Downloads:
Currently None

Source Code:
The github for my original kitchen is here
The github for my overlay is here
The github for Theme Defaults is here
CyanogenMod's github is here
bcrook's github is here
koush's github is here

Install process:
This theme is the standard cyanogenmod rom with my theme added in. Install it like you would cyanogenmod rom. For more details on installing the cyanogenmod roms, please refer to the versions thread on either XDA or CyanogenMod.

Download, boot into recovery, MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP, install theme, reboot. Remember. MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP.

After the phone is booted, and you have a working desktop, be sure to run the "Theme Defaults" program in your launcher. This will set all of the default colors and reboot your phone.

My theme is tested several times before I upload. It is stable on all counts as far as I can tell. Any problems, let me know. That being said

**DISCLAIMER - I'm not responsible if something horribly freaking bad goes wrong. Remember, you chose to install this theme - END DISCLAIMER**


Thanks to:
cyanogen - kicken rom and reason to create a theme
prash - answering my questions and pointing out my mistakes in thought and process
TheDude - amazing idea and work with the overlay that is now being used
mytharak - answering a couple questions and pointing me to some good tutorials
brandenk - for making themes I liked and could use as a comparison on this journey. I also used his pull down image on the launcher (it just looks cool)
Manigma77 - used his battery icons from the droidinator theme
bytesniper - test subject and critic
moby - test subject and critic
carguin - test subject and critic
WootRoot - helping me think of even more things to theme

if I have forgot anyone, it is only because my memory.......

Just curious if you are optimizing the images and zipaligning the apk's? I really like the looks of the theme. I have been theming every update with a blue theme of my own. I am downloading it now to give it a test drive. Looks like a keeper though. Really nice work.

Edit: Took a look at your kitchen git....I see that you have a pngcrush script.

All apk's are zipaligned.

All of the png files are run through pngcrush before compiling the rom. I use pngcrush since it results in the smallest filesize while keeping high quality.

Remember, this is the full cyanogenmod rom. My theme is added as an overlay and compiled from source.

I really love this setup, and the theme looks awesome. My only change would be to get the green out of the dialer.
