Wassup guys?!?

As you may know, the Wildfire has a low-res screen - with a relatively small number of pixels/inch (pixel density) - this is called low density or LDPI. However, CM7 currently uses MDPI resources - which are higher-res and are made for screens with higher pixel density.

So why should this bother you? Because these images are scaled down by the system to fit our screen - and they lose their sharpness and goodness as intended by Google, and the result is... yucky. Gradients get choppy and weird unintended colours pop up. And, the icons are small enough that due to our low pixel density, they use very few pixels and are washed out and ugly.

That's where this theme comes in. It turns out, AOSP has complete LDPI support for the main framework, so I ported those resources and resized/cropped/edited SystemUI resources to better fit our screen. Also, the icons are larger and easier/more pleasant to see on our low-res screen. Gradients are now how they were always meant to be - a smooth transition from one colour to another.

Download here.

Enjoy LDPI goodness. I doubt you won't like this if you're a fan of stock gingerbread.

What's themed
-Entire framework (dialogs, spinners, buttons, backgrounds, etc)
-Status bar icons and notification dropdown
-Settings icons
-Smooth indeterminate progress bars (stock is so choppy)
-Battery percentage / supercircle mod (separate versions)

To Install
Install apk file like normal from a file manager.
Open theme manager. Choose the one with the screenshot below for the preview, and hit Apply and then Apply anyway.
REBOOT REBOOT REBOOT to see all changes.

Not only icons, I ported the ldpi framework from AOSP and I'm in the process of ldpi-izing SystemUI.

That means pretty much anything with a gradient looks waaaay better now.

Your themes actually look fine without resizing except in a couple places. Stock, on the other hand....

Sigh..... Melvin, could you at least wait until I release it to make requests?

FYI, I already made the clock larger. Just not in the screenshot.
