AlienAqua
(aka yet another NON hero based theme)
(aka a theme that doesn't 'borrow' from other themes)
by Prash

(flash only the version compatible with your rom - Check second post for links to other roms)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Screenshots (some of these are from 4.0.4 version of the theme, check latest posts for newer screenshots in thread)





----------------------------------------------------------------------
Info:
AlienAqua is a theme based on the Alien Aqua icon set. I had started this theme back on RC33 but always had put it off since I was trying to find the right wallpapers and images to go with it. Finally after finishing SystemForce I decided to take up this project again. There is apparently a AlienAqua based skin for aHome already but this is in no way connected to that. I haven't really even seen what it looks like.

KNOWN ISSUES
-Note: If you flash from a theme with the new lockscreen, you may get force closes randomly on various apps and crashes. To fix this you must flash the CM ROM over again to replace all the files the lockscreen themes change and then flash my theme on top of the rom. This is just how the theme templates are set up, it does not replace all the leftover files.

Download
(Flash the default CM Rom theme template FIRST to get a fresh install if you are coming from a different theme, flashing on top of other themes could cause issues unrelated to my theme)

CyanogenMod Stable Rom 4.2.15.1
-AlienAqua-1.0.1-cm-4.2.15.1.zip


AlienAqua Metamorph
-Prash-MetaMorphTheme-AlienAqua.zip


CM 4.2.15.1 default template (in case anything goes wrong, flash this to get you back to 4.2.15.1 as it was before)

(Note: This version does not include any of the google apps [legal], you may have to use the icon set from the extras to match everything.)

-AlienAqua-Extras.zip (57 Icons and 11 wallpapers, use them as you'd like.)

Frequently Asked Questions

----------------------------------------------------------------------

How do I install the extra icons?
-Simply unzip the extras zip file somewhere on your sdcard, use an app such as 'bettercut' to set your icons manually. I will be changing some of the system icons to ones I like, so you can use this to change it as well.

How do I use the extra wallpapers?
-I do include the default main wallpaper in the wallpapers gallery but also offer 3 extras in the extra .zip file I included above. To use this put them in /wallpapers/ folder of your sdcard and use an app like 'wallpaper set & save' to set as wallpaper. Or just use android gallery and install from anywhere on your sdcard.

Thanks everyone! Glad this theme's getting good reception. It's been just sitting on the side for too long now and I figured it was time.

I've noticed the blue is really fuzzy in the market with like the stars and things in there. but i love this theme!!!!
That's easily fixed, I'll be sure to remember that in next update.

Oh man this is amazing!!! Somebody please port this to Cyans 4.1.11.1
If someone ports it I'll link it, but otherwise stable should be coming soon anyway so I'll just wait.


andddddd i finally get to switch themes ;)

will theme the better browser and adv launcher in a bit :D

Loccy's BetterBrowser v1.4.3 - AAThemed
Advanced Launcher u17 - AAThemed

:D looks beautiful man .. prash ftw :)
Thanks as always, I'll add these links to the first posts. As always your work is appreciated, I can't say thanks enough.

I can do that, here you go. But chances are that if the site is blocked, then you wont be able to download the zip as well :[ Sorry dude. Not sure why some firewalls/blocks list my site under 'porn', it has nothing of sort on it. Must be the server its hosted on.

I've attached a giant jpg mockup of all the screenshot for the 0.1 version of the theme. (I clerify this because I'm sure minor things will change in upcoming versions)

(apparently there is a 640x640 size limit on the forums for jpg's..heh but you get the idea I guess)
