Here's my theme for ArkSwitch. I wanted it to look much like HTC's notification enhancement since I use them side-by-side.

Click image to view full resolution



Instructions:

1. Make sure you have ArkSwitch v1.14 installed.
2. [Update 07/02/2010: QVGA tested and working, I will assume it works in VGA and WQVGA as well]Make sure your resolution is WVGA; I am not supporting other resolutions. But others may feel free to port it.
3. Download attached ZIP file.
4. Quit ArkSwitch if it is running.
5. Extract ZIP contents to ArkSwitch "Theme" folder.
6. Start up ArkSwitch. Done!

:D

Updates:

07/17/10 - crash bug fixed on HD2 (final?)

*Special thanks to toadlife for the original X-button PNG's*

Absolutely Great Mate!!! That was exactly what i was looking for. ArkSwitch optically never really fitted into Sense but now... Im happy :D

EDIT: Hmm damn ArkSwitch constantly Crashes when using your theme. Im running it with RTTs ROM on HD2 (Win 6.5.3 Manila 2013) Any suggestions...?

Error see pics

After crash, the Device runs extremely slow and needs to be Softreseted.

I am aware of this... But I didn't think it was related to my theme. I had to remove ArkSwitch due to the crashing... If you are certain that it's only after my theme is applied that it crashes, then I will look into my XML and see if I made an error.

NRGZ, please don't cook this yet until we figure this out! At least not in 6.5 HD2 roms.

Unfortunately I am not a developer so if it's not related to my theme it's not something I can fix. I didn't do much but edit the colors and images in the XML file.

Finally a simple solid theme for arkswitch. I've been using it on:

Energy.RHODCDMA.23569.Sense2.5.Cookie.Jun.22

... since you released it with no crashes or any issues other than minor scrolling lag in the process list - but that happens with the other sub par arkswitch themes I've used in the past. I'm chalking that up to the display API used in the app.

Kudos for working on this. Bonus if NRZ bakes it in future ROMs.

I am thinking of changing everything to GIF and maybe this will boost performance... Will need to change the one with transparency though since only PNG can offer transparency. Hopefully the app accepts GIF format images.
