How to make a statusbar theme

1. Use the Omega StatusBar Theme Studio (Easiest)
This is a mode of StudioAndroid.
To go to this mode, run StudioAndroid > Options > Toggle Omega.
The purpose of the Omega Mode is to create themes for Omega Themes on the fly.

1. Download StudioAndroid here.
-Windows-
Download one of the stable updates
Extract in a path without spaces (e.g. NOT in "Documents and Settings")
Double-click StudioWindows.exe
-Lubuntu-
Download the latest update OR one of the stable updates
Extract in your home directory
double-click StudioUnix
-Mac-
install python2.7: 64-bit/32-bit x86-64/i386 / 32-bit i386/PPC
Install this (GTK+ and PyGTK)
Download THIS
Run StudioUnix

2. Run the studio to begin making themes.
3. Click Options > Toggle Omega to get to the omega theme creator.
4. Begin making your own Omega StatusBar Theme.

Link to full studio thread.


2. Manually create your own theme from our template
Step 1 - Download the theme template here --> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/36068089/Omega%20StatusBar%20Theme%20Template.zip
Step 2 - Open the Theme Template. You can use eclipse if you have that all set up or you can simply just edit it with any text editor and sign it. There are many ways to do it. Search it or contact for help!
Step 3 - Open the Res folder. Choose values, then open the Strings.xml file.
Step 4 - Edit the info about your theme. Such as your website, version info, and most importantly, your theme name!
Step 5 - Go back to the values folder and open the config_values.xml file.
Step 6 - Follow the simple directions and edit the file. This file includes layout info and important settings to make your statusbar unique!
Step 7 - Go back to the values folder again and open the colors.xml file.
Step 8 - Edit the color codes. Awesome site for basic colors --> http://html-color-codes.info/
Step 9 - Simply replace all the images in the drawable folders with yours. Make sure to rename your images properly. And don't forget to properly scale them! If you don't, your theme will look like Sh!t on many devices!
Step 10 - The drawable folder contains a bunch of xml files. These are basic animation files for battery charging. But there is one important file you should edit. The Background Animation. Open statusbar_background_animation.xml. This file contains the sequence of images in an animation and the timing each on takes. Swap out the names for what your background animation images are in order. Then alter the timing each one takes. The higher the value, the longer it takes. Notice how we didn't really do much in this file or add any background animation? Well, the default theme doesn't have one. So just add your own images. Pretty simple, right? ;)
Step 11 - Test, test, test. Make sure everything is working and looks good!
Step 12 - Sign and publish your new theme. Want to make some extra money? Publish to the market. But please make a few free themes per paid theme. Just to help Omega StatusBar grow.


If you get any errors in the res folder, check your images and delete the ds.store file if it shows up. I use Mac :p


Need help or get confused, just contact us!

Have an update or awesome add-on to the template? Contact us!

Please help keep the thread clear of random questions about creating a theme.

Hi, i tried your links and the both give servor errors. So i went to the play store and searched. Am installing it now and will update later. Looks really good. Are there any other themes yet?

We just published a few themes tonight so they should be available. We are very busy and both full time students so we are relying on you guys to help out making themes! Please.

Try this link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.calsto.omega.statusbar

Remember, its still a beta. Open to suggestions. Get battery drain? Disable the battery percentage text.

Very nice work guys! Thank you. I am going to suggest it to those using my ROM. It is running great for me - sgs2 t989. Looking forward to the additional themes. This app has lots of potential!

Which themes?
Also ICS or Jelly Bean? :eek:

At the moment there are 10 colors of ICS and JB themes (for a total of 20) being released throughout the weekend :) We're just making a few last minute adjustments but the images are all done so they will be ready very soon. We are also planning on some colored versions of the iPhone theme along with other stock android versions (hc, gb, sense, etc) plus some custom themes. If you have any other ideas let us know but the template is really easy to work with if you want to try creating or porting some themes yourself!

I don't know if it's just me but while scrolling down it frequently goes left or right... Perhaps it's set to be a little too sensitive?

Oh, you mean in the menu? I can add a setting in the about page to adjust the sensitivity. It is a vertical/horizontal scrollview so you can swipe like through pages and scroll up and down for more content. Pretty self explanatory lol.

But, i will fix it.

    Requires badware installation.

    It doesn't require the installation of anything and you don't even have to accept the ads so I'm really not sure what you're complaining about. The popup just asks if you want to use Startapp's search tools or not, and like I just said on the last page, if you don't feel like supporting development and decline it will only show the first two times you open the settings menu. Is pressing a decline button twice really that big of an inconvenience? I don't see anybody complaining about xda putting ads in the 1st 2nd and last post of every single page plus one in the header and footer, not to mention the interstitials every few pages that are almost impossible to clear from a phone browser.

    Lets put it this way: Without startapp we wouldnt be able to afford spending as much time developing as we do, and believe me just because we don't post everything to xda doesn't mean we aren't working 60+ hours a week on things that haven't even been announced yet. This is exactly the reason we stopped posting our progress here, and while luckily most ppl don't share your sense of entitlement, this will be the last public response about our ad preferences unless we want your opinion. All of the required permissions are fully documented on our partner company's sites as well as our own, so if anyone has a valid concern you can send me a pm or email and I would be happy to clarify things for you.

    Seems like it is dead. Such a shame as it had the potential to be a superb app once the bugs were fixed and improvements brought.

    The project definitely isn't dead guys don't worry, our lead dev was in a life-threatening accident last month but we have been working on Omega every day since he got out of the hospital and the next update will be ready soon
