Theme Images


Well since I got a nexus one, I am not really going to work on any more image edits for this theme unless something major comes along that I feel I need to change. In short, here are the images that I use for this theme, organized by .apk. They are pretty much ready to made into a metamorph for anyone that wants to take 10 minutes or so to do it. I have them organized this way so that it is an easy drag and drop to port to new cyanogen ROMs.
http://android-theme-minus.googlecod...nus_images.zip

How to Use MetaMoprh

Step 1
Download MetaMorph and AndExplorer from the Market.

Step 2
Download the MetaMorph file of your choice and place it on your sdcard. I have a folder on my sdcard called "morphs" where I place all of my metamorph files.

Step 3
Open the MetaMorph app, select always allow, then press allow. Select Pick theme. Go to the folder where you put your metamorph files and select the one you want to apply.

Step 4
If you want to apply the full theme, select apply all. MetaMorph will then begin to run through the process of applying the images to your .apk's. This will take a while since there are a lot of .apk's skinned with MetaMorph.

Step 5
Once MetaMorph has gone through the process of applying the theme, You are done. Unless you applied a morph which has framework-res.apk in it, then you will have to reboot your phone, then you are done.

NOTES
If you have the 1660 or above market (see below to determine if you have it or not), then you will need to push/cp the com.android.vending.apk to /data/app/ to get the market back once it is themed by MetaMorph.

Also, if you have the 1660 or above market, then you do not need to use metamorph for framework-res.apk (unless this has been changed).

If you do want one of the color morphs from the bottom and you have the previously mentioned market version or higher, the leave a reply telling me the following:

ROM: ex. CM 4.2.9.1
Version of Theme: ex. iminus
Extras: ex. Advanced Launcher, Stericson's Lockscreen. Put none if you don't have any.
Color: ex. teal.

I will handle these request as they appear in the thread and when I am able to.

Other Content

Extras
I made a splash image to go along with this theme (you can figure out to flash a splash image here -http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ht=boot+images-)
here are just some random wallpapers I found (and that a few that someone shared with me) that I liked and figured I would share. I take no credit for any of these. I am just sharing them.
http://www.4shared.com/file/17138093...ollection.html

MetaMorph file for wallpapers. For people like me who hate how long it takes to set a wallpaper from the gallery, or wherever you set your wallpapers from. I didn't make these wallpapers either, there are a few in here that I edited or resized, but I still did not make them and do not try and take any credit for making them.
Do not use without 1.33.2005 a.k.a. Danger SPL.
http://android-theme-minus.googlecod...Wallpapers.zip

Also there is a modified version of manup456's redRUM clock skin for Weather Widget - Donate (honestly it is a buck fifty)
you can grab the skin here (http://www.4shared.com/file/13352018...BW-RedRUM.html)
Instructions on how to install the skin (thanks again manup456)
Quote:

Connect USB and copy any of these .zip folders into the folder on the root of your S.D called prettyweather-googlecode-com then use the app and install the skin from your S.D and it will re-fresh and the new skin is set.

What is new?


01-17

Lockscreen for CM 4.2.12.2.
Wysie's 2.5 Contacts.apk for both (default in CM 4.2.12.2) with new dialer buttons (not in screen shots).
Maybe a few more framework edits not sure, merge a lot of things I have been tinkering with today.

12-30
Framework changes.
Search Widget Changes.
Other stuff I don't recall.

12-28
Updated to 4.2.11.1
Framework Changes.

12-22
White version of theme created.
New widget layout for white and black version of theme.
Some new framework images.
Fixed global search button visibility.
Theme is now divided up into flashable frameworks for different ROMs and metamorphs for those ROMs.
Probably a lot more stuff that I can't remember right now.

Market Problems


If you have the 1660 or above shown in the image above (found in settings- applications- market) then you will need to either
Code:
adb push com.android.vending.apk /data/app/com.android.vending.apk
or place on the root of your sdcard and in terminal emulator
Code:
su
cp /sdcard/com.android.vending.apk /data/app/com.android.vending.apk
Here is the file.
http://android-theme-minus.googlecod...id.vending.apk

If pushing/cp-ing the .apk to /data/app/ does not fix your problem, or if you do not want to push/cp the .apk, then press uninstall update, and go back to MetaMorph and re-apply the Vending.apk.

Enhancements

All of these are flashed in the recovery console.

Caviar Dreams Font (in the screen shots, not included in the theme by default).
http://www.mediafire.com/?gzyyoee4te2

Stock Font
http://www.mediafire.com/?4vdemmj1ewz

Meta Morphs for Colors


http://android-theme-minus.googlecod...orphs_1218.zip

unzip this and place the .zips inside on your sdcard (preferably in a folder so they will not be picked up in the recovery flash any .zip)

the colors are for colors.

If you already know how to use metamorph then you know what else to do, but if you don't then read this. Metamorph is amazingly simple to use. If you can't get it working, either reply here or pm me.


Special Requests

If you have anything you would like me to try and do, then ask, and if I have the time and the skill, then I will try and do it. Also, for special requests, PM's work best.


I received a request from bleedtheskyjd to make a modification of the older stock launcher tab, and I made it for him, and well I like it too, so here it is for anybody else that wants it.

Advanced Launcher that replaces the current Launcher.apk. Flash package.

Old Versions
Send me a pm if you need an older version of this theme.

thanks for the feedback guys.

ummmm... i really suck at photoshop, so ummm i don't know how much i can do for the gloss. it doesn't look as flat on the phone, ddms doesn't take the greatest screenshots. its really obvious in the music one.

i will try to add htc music in the next one. really will just need a tester or 2 for it. (since i don't use it)

crap i did forget about the browser... will def throw that in
I'll try and figure out stericson's lockscreen.
yeah i know about the draw wallpaper. i need to look at it some more. (brandenk has a sick one i will probably throw in there.)


I will try to make a few versions with extras (lockscreen, adv launcher, htc music) or maybe just separate updates for each thing so the end user can pick and choose which things he/she wants (will also save on uploading time)

thank you for your comments. i will try to figure out some gloss for the status bar (or point me in the direction of a theme that has a status bar you like and i will incorporate it or at least make an update for it)

Dude, this is a freakin nice theme! I am about to download it now. Beagz made a keyboard for me called green glo, which is almost the same as blue glo on his HTC_IME page, which I think will look sweet on this if anybody is willing to try it out. But again..great work!
