Info:
SystemForce is based on the artwork by Homeryulo. I love the iconset and wallpapers so I had originally created this to customize my own G1. I started adding more and more and this is the latest instance of my work. This is a HIGHLY customized theme which was in the Theme competition here at XDA once upon a time. Since then it has gone through endless revisions and updated to SystemForce2 and now SystemForce3 with over 1000+ images edited. There are ports to other rom's linked in the second post if you want to risk it.


Download - Only flash version compatible for your rom.
(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)

-SystemForce3-(v1.0.2)-cm-4.2.15.1.zip


MetaMorph Version
-Prash-MetaMorphTheme-SystemForce3.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)

Frequently Asked Questions

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

How do I read the funky new battery meter?
-Green = Good
-Light Green = Meh
-Yellow = Where's my charger?
-Orange = GET OUTA MY WAY I NEED TO CHARGE THIS
-Red = End of the world as we know it.

or like so:

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.

What if I want this theme for other roms?
-Some great people in this thread have helped porting over some of the theme for other roms: (older versions-only try at your own risk!!)

--JACxROM-1.3r3: SystemForce3.0.2
--JACxROM-1.3r3: SystemForce3.0.2.1
--JACxROM-1.4r3: SystemForce3.0.4.6

--JACxROM-1.5r4: SystemForce3(v1.0)

SystemForce3.0.4 for:
--JFv1.5CRB43-US.zip
--TheOfficialCRC1-US..zip
--TheOfficialCRC37-EU.zip
--TheOfficialCRC1-ADP.zip

What if I want this theme for Cyanogen's Experimental roms?

Since the whole google/cyanogen fiasco I realized this may be the last experimental rom for a while so I went ahead and ported the theme for it.
-SystemForce3-(v1.0e) (runs on CM 4.0.4 - uploaded September 26, 2009)

I don't like the GOLD color scheme, do you have it in other colors?
-Simple answer: No. Long answer: The original artwork is mostly in the gold color you see most of the images based on. If someone wants to go through all the images and change them to different colors, by all means feel free to do so and I will link them here. Flash these only at your own risk, I can't take responsibility for things others have made

Current available colors:

SystemForce3.0.4.4 in BLUE: Download from snyper2k2
-Works in CM 4.0.4
-Haven't personally tested it, just signed and uploaded.

Just not for me, but I've always thought your Theme was BADASS! It's still looking more professional than 90% of the themes that our out.

i was wondering if any has tried this???

I tested this on CM 4.0.1 extensively. Its perfectly safe if you have the proper rom. After the initial install, it may stay on G1 screen for a minute or two, just give it time and it should get to the animated boot screen after that.

Just not for me, but I've always thought your Theme was BADASS! It's still looking more professional than 90% of the themes that our out.

Thanks! Going to continue making newer themes too hopefully once this thing is out of the way. I'm itching to make more now that I got the hang of themes again. No offense to anyone out there, but you can only have so many hero based themes. Rosie was pretty, but now she's just a common hooker it seems :[

Finished flashing it

AWESOME!!!!!

Here's a themed adv launcher for who wants it

Please theme Music widget for those of us who dont use the HTC Music app :D

Suggestion: on the lock screen, maybe have the font a little darker to make a bigger contrast? :)

Can't wait for future versions seriously this is kick ass :)

EDIT: oh yeah also can you pleaseee theme calendar widget as well (not gunna mention settings widget since you already put it on your to-do list ;))

Next on the list of to do's are of course the widgets. Since those are .9.png files and I've been off my main computer for a while, I'll have to work on them when I can. I don't use htc music either, so everything themed will probably be the stock stuff.

Thanks for providing the advance launcher for others as well, I stopped using it when Cyan dropped it. I had cut down to 3 screens anyway and I didn't use folders.

Great looking theme. Runs smooth and haven't notice any slowdowns that I have noticed with some other themes.
I flashed the theme no problem but I cant flash the extra pack. any suggestions?

Excellent theme. You and MOONSPOON are changing the game (at least when gchrome is released).

It's also the first theme I flashed on 4.0.1 with no force closes (probably just my luck).

I think any personal request were previously addressed, so I'll just say can more of the icons be built in?

As far as the install question, you need WinRAR to open the file to changes the drawables and such, then you can replace the icons with the ones in the extras folder.

Going to try Advanced Launcher now. Thank you for posting that, I was just about to theme it as I read this.

There should be not a single force close issues as long as you're loading it on proper CM Rom. Believe me I made sure I tested it way too many times before I release any of my themes.

As far as other icons: yes more of them will be built in as they were in the rc33 version of this theme.

To use the extras: Do not flash it as an update.zip, its simply a zip file with an icons folder and a wallpapers folder.

The icons you can use if you have bettercut/anycut to manually change your system icons to match.

The wallpapers you can drop them in your sdcard and use it with the theme as any wallpaper. I suggest you download 'wallpaper set & save' from market, put them in /wallpapers/ folder and use the app to set it to get a non pixelated wallpaper.

I've added the frequent questions to post #2, people who have trouble with the extras zip file, check that.
