If @PaintballerAlex wants - he could add more from the market app called 'MetroStation' - it's icon pack. I am not sure how the author might be contacted, but if everyone is happy, you could probably acknowledge the original author and use A LOT of icons in theme.

For now, icons are semi-themed on my phone. I'm unable to change any icons using various icon-swapping apps. They fail on Launcher 7.

Also,

You mentioned that you might have a separate metamorph for replacing all the 'Orange highlights' - would it be replaced by blue or white? With current theme only tile colour that matches is blue, but if all orange were replaced by white, I guess all other tile colours might suit too.

The text boxes in email and messaging seems about right!

However some grey boxes don't respond very well to touch. I mean touching it's edges or few other areas might not work straightaway, but touching right in the centre of any greybox, generally works. If touched in corners then it just needs another tap. It could be my dying touchscreen, but since everythin else works ok, it could be that the images are smaller, bigger or something that I don't understand. But no biggie though.

I will try and get in touch with the theme author, see what he says...but I wouldn't be surprised if he says no!


I made the text boxes the exact same size as the original, except I think I might have got rid of some shadow around the edge and left it blank, so it might not work there if you touch now, where you might have used to have been.

That said I am just in the habit of touching the centre and it works fine, And I don't know what I could do about this...



I have the highlights half working in Theme Chooser. That being, they are still yellow to the touch, but turn the darker blue (focus) on long press.

I can't see a problem in my xml:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector
  xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:state_window_focused="false" android:drawable="@color/transparent" />
    <item android:state_focused="true" android:state_enabled="false" android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@drawable/frameworks_res_list_selector_background_disabled" />
    <item android:state_focused="true" android:state_enabled="false" android:drawable="@drawable/frameworks_res_list_selector_background_disabled" />
    <item android:state_focused="true" android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@drawable/frameworks_res_list_selector_background_focus" />
    <item android:state_focused="false" android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@drawable/frameworks_res_list_selector_background_pressed" />
    <item android:state_focused="true" android:drawable="@drawable/frameworks_res_list_selector_background_focus" />
</selector>
The "frameworks_res_list_selector_background_press ed" is obviously the light blue .9.png - but its still occurring yellow. So I think it *may* be a limit of Theme Chooser. Or someone else might be able to prove me wrong :P

I will have to put them in the next metamorph for the time being...

I have messaged the creator of said MetroStation icons, and will await his response to see if I have permission to re-distribute!

Since it's a free app, I hope he will be liberal!

Also another good contact might be guys from Minimal bread and Minimal magic - seems most of the 'orange' odd bits have been overcome in those themes. Even on long press options where we get Orange and in keyboard suggestions - they have managed to make themechooser theme with everything coloured in same flow. May be they might be able to share the trick?

Yup, I have IHO CM7 on the Optimus V.
I tried multiple times (making sure I flashed the right one). No errors. But when I reboot, nothing changes.

okay, what am I missing - tried using metamorph and got an error so installed busybox and got that working. Flashed the metamorph but still not new lockscreen.

On CM7/Nexus S 4g.

Has the power menu changed the icons black? - if it has the metamorph should have worked
Are you using the stock lockscreen, not widget locker or anything?
If its stock which style lockscreen are you using?

Then I'm sorry to say I honestly have no idea what the problem is...

Long press, I have got working, just the normal press is yellow. I will look at their themes and that will tell me how to fix it, I hope.

Sorry it may be a bit of a wait for that metamorph version of the latest beta, I have a load f homework to catch up on...
