Download Avaiable Here!



v2.0:
- [Swype + Skin:]
WQVGA - WVGA - VGA - QVGA
- [Skin Only:]
WQVGA - WVGA - VGA - QVGA





v1.0:
- [Skin Only:]
WQVGA - WVGA - VGA - QVGA

- [Swype Original Cab Only:]
WQVGA - WVGA - VGA - QVGA



v2.0 (28 February 2010)
Released. Woring on the new build (multilanguage).
Based on 3.9.10.10 Cab.
Working only on WVGA/HTC devices.

v1.0 (25 December 2009)
Now it works in every language Rom, i fix a thing in the extrator cab.
Every Resolution, every device, from QVGA to WVGA, and the widescreen versions.
Fixed the .ini file that in QVGA makes the skin ugly. Now it has the correct aspect ratio.
You have to install first the cab and then the skin. If you have the Swype keyboard cooked in, you have to install only the skin.
On NON-WWE ROMs you have to move the swype folder from your locale program files folder to /Program Files/.

I'm working on it totally free!
Donations are allowed =)



ATTENTION! Remove the password from your phone before installing the cabs, or it will lock your phone and you should hard reset =(


Here the images at full resolution.
If you could adapt it to VGA/QVGA/WQVGA and for non-htc device, it will be fantastic!
I've no more time to spend with this skin... the school is really holding me to the chair XD

PORTRAIT MODE COMPLETED!

Honestly i could also post a cab of the portrait skin, but I don't like post something that is incomplete...
If at least one person want it, i could pack and upload to this post, else I continue with the Landscape skin and you'll wait for the final release ;)


EDIT:
DOOWNNLOOAADDD IN FIIIRSSTTT POOOSSSTTT!
(only the portrait mode, it's Christmas!)

But... why did you posted it here?! XD
mmm i could try to install the VGA and the QVGA version on my older devices and if the landscape is just resized from the wide version, i could make every cab ;)

Woo~ YAY!! thanks!

But a small request.. Is there any chance to improve the quality of the keys? :D

no, i'm sorry, the QVGA/WQVGA is too smaller (4 times) and with a different height (77% of the ratio).
Last week i had a QVGA Device and i hate the ugly resize of the themes and application, now i'm on WVGA and i'm skinning for that resolution.
QVGA is too older for spend times to support it, i'm betting all on VGA/WVGA ;)

I'm Sorry =(

I know that creating these skins are very time consuming so if my quality is up to standards with that of your own, you are welcome to use the .bmp that I created for the Numeric and Editing LS.

good work! but mines are better :D
If you have some spare time, you could try to make the qvga resizing... not just make shorter the image, but deleting some pixel lines between keys... did you understand me? :D

The quality may not be up to par with the original which should be expected but it doesn't look half bad on my device. I just hate waiting. Greak work though!!!
