Gingerbread is out, although some of our devices can't run it yet
So the next best thing... A Gingerbread theme

(Also btw, the status bar icons are not the official Gingerbread one's because I made this theme before Gingerbread was out, and on the leaked pictures the Status bar icons were green, unlike the grey ones, and honestly i prefer green, although I may change this

This is for MDPI Devices Only

Installation - Framework
1.Download the attached zip, named GBThings
2.Extract that, and place it on your phone.
3.Now download an application called Metamorph from the market (You must have root btw).
4.Open Metamorph and let it do it's checks...
5.Now click on Unzip/Extract theme and find the folder you put on your phone.
6.Now in that folder open the one named 'Framework' and select the Zip file inside that,
Metamorph should now extact the theme, and you should click on Apply all.
Let it do it's thing, it may freeze but leave it.
Then reboot your phone
You should notice the status bar and icons on it have changed.


ADW Users
1. Do the same as above up to step 6, instead of opening the folder 'Framework' open the one named 'ADW' then continue using the steps above.

Also you will need to create a Custom shortcut to the corresponding actions with the Gingerbread Icons included in the Zip then place them in your dock.


Launcher Pro Users
(I apologise for no tut, but I assume you know how to do this, the dock is under the Launcher pro directoy of the given folder and the icons are under the Icons directory)


Keyboard
Also in the zip is the gingerbread keyboard, flash the GBKeyboard using recovery

I worked on this same sort of thing last night, if you want I can PM you all the images I did. I ripped and re-colored mine from CMH :P
Though I think the color on mine may be off. I used Colorify in the GIMP to put them all to Android Green (#A4C639). And my battery is crap, hah.

I mean like, the dock portion is great, but the status bar looks different, the wifi is curved not just lines, the signal lines are more higher up, and the battery looks like its upright in gingerbread

Heres a little mod I did
[basically I made a new phone icon, and resized the browser icon to 40x40
I think it looks closer to the pictures, except they may be too small]

Okay, Thank you

It was only a quick job, so it's similar but not exact Although I might try and change that later on
