a dial pad that looks black, and not so glossy. like the minimal matte one:

tried to metamorph contacts.apk for dialer, but the defy has no contacts.apk

I have the Gingerstock theme from JB3 installed. Something in yellow would be cool so that matches the theme.

Is your phone rooted? If so, can you pull a copy of your dialer for me so I can edit?

Use root explorer, go to /system/app. Grab blurdialer.apk, long hold and copy. move copy yo sd card and attach here

sounds great, here it is. It's from my system. I'm using the orange rom

3.4.2_131-003_Deblur_Sign if that is helpful

Hey sorry, got busy at work... I'll grab it now and work on it, stay tuned for post. I'll try to get it as best as possible, but I ddi find while themeing mine, you cannot change the actual numbers only the back grounds. Stupid blur!

Cool
I'm going in blind, so not sure exactly how this looks or what managed to change. So do as I say and check it out, whatever you want fixed I'll redo it... Try it out though.

-Grab the apk from the attachment
-Put BlurDialer.apk on your SD card
-Using Root Explorer, Move this apk to /system
-Once in /System, long hold the apk, and hit permissions. Check boxes should look like this:

Read Write Execute
X X X
X
X

So essentially an upside down L.

- Once permissions have been changed, long hold the apk and paste in /System/app , hit yes to overwrite.

- Backout to home screen and reboot.

Let phone completely load up, then go into your dialer and see the changes.

Please report back with what needs to be fixed or what color arrangement you'd like different.

Otherwise enjoy!

Yeah ! thank you ! looks great ! Now it much better integrates in the theme.
I took screenshots with an app. The SDK for 2.2 won't install. It says that i have to install Java SDK, what i already did

So how you did it ? Is there a way to get inside the apk ? As you can see in screenshot 5 there is already red when i pressed the button. Can this changed also to yellow ? I ask because this "red" goes to the whole system. It is in the browser when he loads a site, it's there when i changed the volume and so on. I would like to edit more so that the system has one theme

When there is no way to theme the dialer buttons, is it possible to install the original contacts.apk ? I asked this in another thread too.

Don't forget the Thanks button!

Try this one, I made some more edits, need to see if it is the correct one for the button push. I don't believe there is a way to install the contacts.apk.

To theme the file you need to get into the apk, remove the res folder, theme in the drawable-hdpi and ten put the pieces back together. You can google for files to do so. I dont 't mind helping you..

I wonder how the yellpw in the status bar would look


Anyways, try this and see what differences there is.
