Please do not use my images.

Read me.

The theme was made from scratch, for use with the XTheme engine. You can read all about XTheme >>HERE<<.
Originally the theme was created for the Xperia T and posted in my Themes/guides/and mods thread, but after some testing and PM's it appears to work well on other devices also.

The theme is multi-dpi and works on many devices and firmware including Sony and Samsung running Stock and custom ROM's

Confirmed working on:
  • LT30p Xperia T -XHDPI (Stock).
  • ST25i Xperia U -HDPI (Stock/Aosp/CM10)
  • nexus 4 -xhdpi (USE ONE OF THE VARIANTS FROM POST 3!!)
  • Ouya console - not sure what *dpi it uses.
If you try this theme and it works on a device other than the list, please leave feedback. Thank you.

The theme buttons and switches are mainly transparent in an attempt to be compatible with most backgrounds (I advise against full black).

Please note: The theme was built upon Jelly Bean 4.1.2. for the Xperia T. Using ICS or devices other than Sony will give varied results.
If the theme doesn't look complete on you device read this:

Q. Why does the theme not look like the screenshots?

A. The reason is down to different devices, firmware and redirections. At this moment i haven't added any redirections to support HTC devices. If enough people show an interest then i might add in support.


If you find certain apk's are partly themed, please post a screen shot and the apk in question for me to look into. Thank you.

I am open to feedback good or bad... this doesn't mean I will listen.

Simplicity drawable-xhdpi resources ONLY
These are 2 versions in this post.
  1. A stripped version of Simplicity containing just the drawable-xhdpi resources for new devices like the Nexus 4 and Xperia Z that have problems with blurred images with the original Simplicity apk.
  2. And an apk containing xhdpi + xxhdpi resources.

Screenshots:

Simplicity beta



Simplicity xhdpi



Download and install following the instructions from the first post.

I will update this apk in tandem with the original theme.
When i get more time i will upload it to the Play store to enable auto updates.

Click the icon to download.
xhdpi ONLY.


Click the icon to download.
xhdpi+xxhdpi.


This apk will not replace the Simplicity beta apk as it uses a different package name.

So v2.2 caused your settings to force close?
It's probably to do with the settings headers.xml, i need to implement it into the XTheme to enable or disable depending on the device and firmware.

Follow this guide:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=317

But instead of changing anything(unless you want to) navigate to res>xml and delete "settings_headers" then continue as described.

As described this theme is Xperia devices. the problem is caused by settings_headers.xml.

Did you try the v2.4.1 that i linked?
