5.3 is for rhodium manila only
For other manila versions, check out 4.0 or 3.1 below.

Home Tab: Removed call history and no appointments. Voicemail and valid appointments still show. Moved appointment list higher so you can see maximum of 4 now. Moved date and alarm above time, and moved carrier name to center. Clock press now takes you to a 6 tab screen(call history, all people, web search, world clock, alarm, and profiles) instead of the standard world clock view.
Album Tab: Enlarged pictures/videos preview size for easier viewing
Music Tab: Enlarged album view and changed perspective
Internet Tab: Removed the logo/Launch Browser for better viewing since new search bar cut into screen area. Added "launch browser" link that launches whatever your default browser is.
Programs Tab: Changed to 3 icon view and changed All Programs to 4 icon view
Manila Start Menu compatible
updated files for xbmod v1D
Background for all tabs
Removed Title on all tab pages after Home, but left it showing on the subpages.
theme backgrounds for preview when sliding tabs
new theme background for level1 menus
layout for internet tab
programs tab bug where start menu launched
notifications on tab cut off
MORE TO COME, and there will likely be updates and fixes as the manila port advances

Download CAB HERE:

Old Builds for standard Manila TF3D:
BBExtreme 4.0 Remix CAB
BBExtreme 3.1 CAB

If you don't want entire theme, here's a few cabs for parts of it:
If you only want the glass or smoked glass clock image files, cabs are located at end of this post. They only include the images, so you will need to have a working flip clock first. Two cabs are transparent glass, one with white numbers, and the other with black numbers. The other is smoked glass with black numbers.
For HD people tab only, cab located at end of post. May not work with all devices.
Program Launcher icon backgrounds are in two cabs below, one for the clear glass, other is smoked glass.
Wallpaper zip for versions 1 through 3.1 Download HERE

Thanks go out to Chainfire, 6Fg8, Dman666 for the great tools they've made for editing manila files. Thanks to xboxmod and team for the manila package. Thanks to NRGz28 and At0mAng for the roms using it. The icons are from Aqwoah theme I used from Iphone. I just added them to the black buttons I made. The 8 included wallpapers are collected ones from here and there, thanks to whoever made them.

************************************************** ******
Introducing XWeather

XWeather works with any tf3d theme as an addon using mortscript, secondtoday, and homescreen ++UI. It gives weather details not available with standard tf3d weather and lets you add 4 radar url images. Auto or manual updates with on/off time periods. Option to turn off radar updates.
Its also QVGA compatible if you have a qvga device you want to add it to.
Check post #5 for downloads and install instructions.

Thanks go out to Beyond Invisible for weather graphics.

If you can't download from mediafire, please contact me for alternate link.

looks great showaco. thanks a lot for hooking us all up and just curious to know how u got the call history and calendar off the home screen? also, can just calendar be left on or vice versa? main reason being is call history being a tab negates the need for it on home screen. however, the calendar tab DOESNT replace the one click calendar view we were all getting so used to only bugs and not sure the first one is, but, the date doesnt show up on the calendar tab icon and i dont get the popup menu on the sms tab (new, reply, etc.). other than that, liking the new enhancements, even the new envelope animation
edit** noticed the calendar date isnt bug, its like that in screenshot

XWeather needs mortscipt, HomeScreen PlusPlus UI, and SecondToday if you want to use it with tf3d. It will work with any theme, not only this one. It could also be added to another homescreen plusplus theme or other UI's as well.
Tabs in screenshots:
1st* Current Weather condiitions
2nd* 5 day forecast conditions
3rd* 4 radar images
4th* weather setup/options
5th* run manual update

Installation for XWeather:
1* below has cab files for Mortscript, HS++UI, and SecondToday. Download it and install the cab files.
2* Download xweather cab below and install it, soft reset after installation.
3* After reboot, your left soft key will be set to launch SecondToday/Xweather, press it now.
4* When SecondToday starts, choose Homescreen PlusPlus as today plugin.
5* When HS++ loads, it will have battery monitor in top left of screen. Tap and Hold on it to bring up HS++ options. Go to the Advanced menu and choose XWeather as the theme and click OK.
6* You should now have xweather loaded, fourth button is for xweather setup options. Run it now and set all the options, when finished, run update and exit. It uses accuweather, so city code is same as for tf3d, if you don't know your code then use this link:, just change location name to your city instead of London.
7* Left soft key will take you back to tf3d.

Download ---->> XWeather.CAB

What can I say. Simply awesome work and I'm still digging the Blue Theme.

Could you also do BBExtreme in Blue?

I'm really kinda over the HTC blackness.

Unhappy deleted Stock Tab
Looks awesome, but it removed my stock tab from Lantis RC2 Beta.

So i have to uninstall it.
