Updated all links with signed APKs, also added new version of smooth calendar

UPDATE 27/09

Thanks to Wheezy_be, I was able to mod the SMS Unread count much faster since half the work was done already

If you would like to see his work, go to

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=787446


so anyways here is a link to the apk

also modded the music widget

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

Alright after viewing newone757's thread: [Layout] Android Phone 7 (HDPI), I decided to mod some of the widgets that I use to WM7-style

So far I've modded genie widget, smooth calendar, and switchpro


so here is a link for smooth calendar and genie widget

genie widget:
http://www.mediafire.com/?yyypq8d9zdum629

smooth calendar:
http://www.mediafire.com/?cc07w6czp1cr8cq

switchpro:
please PM your proof of purchase





Installation:

smooth calendar and switchpro

- Uninstall if you already have these apps.
- Reinstall modded apk as normal apps
- I have signed the apk so there shouldn't be any issue

with switchpro, you need to make sure you choose no background


Genie widget
With RootExplorer

- copy modded apk
- paste in system/app
- change permission of apk to rw-r--r--
- reboot phone

Using adb

Type - adb devices (See your device)
Type - adb remount
Type - adb push GenieWidget.apk /system/app/GenieWidget.apk

It's nice to see a thread covering something other than just the .psd, hehe.
Very nice work, my man. Keep it up

It's in the first post.
Try reading it.

If you don't know how to push the widgets to your phone, this is how:
- - -


Download the Android SDK
Extract the .zip to C:\
Rename it Android
Enter the folder and setup the SDK
Download everything it asks about
"Force https..." if you can't download.

Download the widgets
Put all the .apk is one folder
Rename the folder newapp and put it in C:\Android\tools

Start CMD - type cd C:\android\tools
Type - adb devices (See your device)
Type - adb remount
Type - adb push newapp system/app

It would be interesting to make a whole new launcher "windows phone 7" style so we can replicate the various functions of the real win phone 7 "widgets".
Sadly i'm not able to code a single line, maybe someone else can make this huge work

Thanks for nice mods.
Could You tell me how to edit switchpro height? I would like to hide notification/status bar so I need to increase widgets height a little to remove such big gaps between icons.
Thanks

Update: I have edited appwidget_bg_null.9.png and appwidget_bg.9.png - added 2 lines of blue pixels to top and button, but have opposite effect - widget became smaller.
Update2: Here are the sizes of icons.

Update3: Ok, it seems that I should use some special editor, not PS.
