Heres a theme of the HTC Desire.
It changes the Statusbar and the Drawer and makes the Buttons green. So as the Real HTC Desire it has.

Everybody knows it, everybody likes it

Look here:



Installation and Downloads
At first I have to say something new!
The new Metamorph seems to be a bit unstable by applying themes with coloured text in the statusbars. Some of you have reported problems while applying it. So I have decided to make the theme applying in a few little steps.

This is a Metamorph Theme. You have to install Metamorph (or better: Metamorph Pro) from the market. Copy the following files to your SD Card in the folder "AndroidThemes"

If you have problems
Check following
Quote:

1. Have you downloaded the correct files for your ROM?
2. Have you debugging enabled in the Android Menu?
3. Install "Titanium Backup" start it and hit the "Problems?" Button, then it installs a correct busybox version. This is required!!!
4. In Metamorph, press Menu, play with the applying speed. Choose a speed above 4200!
5. Never check the "Disable startup checks" in Metamorphs settings
5.2. If the notification text isn't white, reapply the second zip file. Metamorph is a bit buggy with it. I must apply it four times, but it still works
6. Never, never, never rename the zipfile. If you do this, you become error messages like "Theme Control File Missing"



Step 1:
Download and apply this
Main Theme File for Cyanogen and Enomthers
Main Theme File for MCR

Step 2:
CMUI file for Cyanogen ROM Copy this to the root of your SD Card, delete the ".desire" extension. Go to Cyanogen Settings and Load this file
Text Colour File for Enomther ROM 2.11. Install via Metamorph.
Text Colour File for Enomther Rom2.21preAlpha+Copy this to the root of your SD Card, delete the ".desire" extension. Go to Spare Parts and Load this file
Text Colour File for Modaco ROMs Install via Metamorph




Thanks to all, who have made it possible!!

Use c:/... / SDK/tools/ddms.bat
Choose Device/ Screen capture.
Should be ok with Modaco's ROM to?

I really like it but was wondering if you could make the notification slide down tray less transparent? Especially when you're on a screen with a white background it is difficult to distinguish between the tray and what is in your notifications...other than that it looks great
