Theme Elements That Get miss by the theme Engine, Ie Lock Screen, volume rock and more:

this is a bit tricky sense every device use different framework so 1 zip thing wouldnt work, we found the best way to do it is make a Meta Morph so everyone can get the same experience.

so what this MM includes:

Theme your lockscreen, your slinding tab lock will now be transparent. your rotary will be transparent for the most part minus some Linear images. and there is a new image for the minimal Lense lockscreen. volume bar now will match the rest.

Now Meta Morph is either Hit or Miss. What I did to make this work the best was purchased MetaMorph Pro, from within the app I slowed down the install speed to just about 1000 and it worked perfectly.

Another option is to use Zipthemer From the Market, I think this is the best Option as it make a flasable zip and a Undo zip when you want to return to Stock. More Info here.


Screen Shot: Upload in a bit.

Download Xtra Linear Framework Files as a MM:

Linear Xtra add on(not a flashable zip)

We also have done some addition 3rd party apps which I will put in the second Post of this thread.

Linear - Keyboard Skin (HD) by

Are you sick of blurry keyboard skins claiming to be "HD"? Look no further!
Designed ***specifically*** for users of Linear theme (by @bgill55 and BSTHEMES).

To get the Linear theme for Android search the Market for "Linear theme" or visit the thread on XDA for all theme variants:
This is a "Real HD" keyboard skin- no blurry edges, no artifacts.
Suitable for Better Keyboard, Smart Keyboard, Ultra Keyboard.

CAN'T GET IT TO WORK?: -- please read it
*** This is a theme only - please rate the design of the theme - keyboard function is not part of this app ***
I got annoyed at all the "so called" HD skins for Better Keyboard on the Market so I'm starting to make my own with attention to pixel-level detail. Dare to compare.
