Default CHT Christmas Theme - Including new Days2Xmas Widget

Well, here at last it is! The Christmas theme is finished

What does the theme cab include?

CHT Comm Toggles - Airplane, Wifi, Bluetooth, Phone, Silent, Vibrate
CHT Notification Icons incl Voicemail now
CHT HD Mini Lockscreen - Snowman lock slider, slider notification icons
Email and SMS widget skins (see instructions)
CHT softkeys and dock - Apps (start menu), CHT (CHT menu), Web, Phone, Tabs, Lock

Add-on widgets for theme:

dSign Clock v1.2 LE including Christmas layout
Days2Xmas widget - a massive thanks to Rat for this one. My idea was for a simple countdown widget using 25-CurrentDayDate as the calculation, however Rat has as usual come up with a genius script which will now work right up until Christmas 2019, right throughout the year!!!!

edit - Santod has now corrected the element in the days2xmas cab which was causing the 'white square' issue on some devices. Fixed cab is now attached to this post. Santods original post is HERE

7/12 - Added days2xmaseve cab - basically the same widget but with the countdown to the 24th for those countries who count that as the official start of Christmas (also includes fix for Weihnachten not showing correctly and Kerst instead of Kerstmis for Mike ) - FIX FOR WHITE SQUARE DONE (Thanks Santod)

IMPORTANT - you can only have one of the countdown widgets installed so make sure if you are going to use the days2xmaseve cab that you uninstall days2xmas first

Wallpaper pack includes 5 1440x800 wallpapers plus a 480x800 for skinning the taskbar to match the WP in the screenshots (this obviously won't work with any of the other walls!)

The screenshots also include a snow forelayer which I made. I have posted it here as well, but for instructions on how to use it you'll need to refer to the Forelayer thread here in the HD2 Themes subforum.


Download and install the cab then soft reset. Do the same with the 2 CHT widget cabs.
Download and unzip the wallpaper folder and copy them to wherever you keep your wallpapers.
Set the Very wide WP to Christmas WP2 and skin the taskbar with the Christmas Taskbar WP.
Add the email, SMS, dSign clock (Christmas Layout) and Days2Xmas widgets (select your language in layout options)
Change the main and sub text colours for the email and SMS widgets in CHTE to 252,202,38
Add the toggles and notification icons as freelinks - toggles need to be down the right side or the candy canes will look a little daft!).
Select your softkeys in CHTE.

I have also posted a zip file with the photoshop template for the softkeys if you want to add your own.

There was a problem with the CHT_voicemail png in the original theme cab so I have fixed it and posted an updated cab. If you have already installed the theme then just download the from this post, unzip and copy the image to \Windows. Restart sense and the icon will now appear correctly

If you are having problems with CHT not allowing you to install more than 9 widgets LOOK HERE for the fix - thanks Mike/Poyensa/Santod

If you are having problems with the Days2Xmas widget showing a white square where the numbers should be then CLICK HERE and provide us with the info requested. FIXED
