This is my first theme chooser theme, so
please be kind. It is inspired by Google's Chrome OS. Its a work in progress, but I'm confident that the theme base is pretty solid. Future releases will include theming of app icons & fixing any stray WOW & BOB text that may occur.

This theme is xhdpi only at this stage, but hdpi support may be added in future releases.

Any and all input is welcome. This theme may take a while before I consider it complete, but with constructive criticism, we can work towards something really slick & clean & characteristic of Chrome's beautiful UI.

Working on cm10/10.1AOKP JB, bamf, xenonHD, etc.
NOTE: PA per app color settings will mess up this theme A LOT. Its not a problem with the theme, but pa's settings overlaying over the theme resources. Please, no complaints about this as there is nothing I can do, but pa needs to sort out what takes priority.

*NOTE: I have decided not to try & incorporate ics theming into this theme as it becomes too much work to test & lays up my phone in an unusable state while doing so. Sorry.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1.Download & install Chromium from the link below.
2.Go to settings/themes.
3.Apply Chromium theme.
-If you get an error about 'missing assets for your screen size', click 'apply anyway'
- If you get an error saying 'this theme was incorrectly compiled', apply the system theme, reboot then apply Chromium theme.
4.Reboot.


*FOR THE WALLPAPERS*

Download Theme chooser wallpapers from play store:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.upwardspiral.wallpapers

To apply wallpapers, just use your device's stock wallpaper picker & select Chromium wallpapers. :) There are 10 wallpapers included, but a full wallpaper pack can be downloaded from the link below.

*DOWNLOADS*

Please consider buying the paid version as a thankyou. There really is a lot of time & headaches that go into this. Thankyou for your support.

Paid play store version is HERE



You can download Chromium-free-v2.4.apk free version here



Extra Chrome wallpapers are here
(This is not a flashable zip. Extract the images and apply them manually)

Hope you like it.

If you like my work, please hit the thanks button. It goes a long way toward inspiring me to spend more time on this theme. Thanks.

If you would like to donate so that I can buy a better computer, you can do so HERE

Thanks to arzbhatia for the ics concept nav keys.

Big thanks to vicino for helping me out with a few things regardless of having a similar theme himself and for the original nav keys.

Thanks also to the xda community & especially the gnex community for the (mostly) positive feedback.

Hey Stumpy I been silently stalking your progress in the other thread and i must say your doing a Good Job. I really believe that you will pull this off, you have motivation and enthusiasm. Keep up the great work, one question though is this for CM9 or CM10 theme chooser?

Should work on both. Although I haven't got around yo theming rom specific thngs like cm& aokp toggles, rom control etc. Also you may not get the grey navbar on cm9. Not sure. Try & see. ;)

Tried it, it looks good actually ! There are still few problems but not much in my opinion =) (on CM10)
For example :
uploadfromtaptalk1346572647002.jpg
The Cyanogen icons aren't themed ;) (but you are a BAMF user if I remember correctly =) )

uploadfromtaptalk1346572789794.jpg
Here the power widget isn't themed and hard to see =) (by the way, too bad you didn't keep the blue color on notifications, but that's just my opinion =) )

uploadfromtaptalk1346572959387.jpg
(Nova Launcher) The text on the top is hard to see ;) (the colors are themed by me)

52e58d2c-131e-00e6.jpg

The IME notification isn't themed ;)

uploadfromtaptalk1346573161761.jpg
The last one I promise ! ^^ The text on the popup is hard to see ;)

You really did a good job, thanks a lot ! =)

Edit : just seen your message above mine, so don't consider the CM10 specific problems =)

I ask what base are you working for first CM9/CM10 so i can add to the appropriate thread. I maintain the Official MEGA CM9 & CM10 Theme Chooser threads.

EDIT: I'll just add to both.

I used a base for cm10, but i'd love to here how it works for cm9 users before you go adding it. Just in case. ;)

More screenshots to see what has been themed. All I can tell are white pop ups.

    Alright guys, so I got sick of theming an endless number of incompatible apps, so I'm rewriting the theme from scratch. It'll take some time, but was necessary due to the holo light invert breaking everything. Will be worth the wait though. ;)

    Well guys & gals, my old laptop finally crapped itself this morning, before I had a chance to copy over all my theme files. Lost all my progress with the new version. So I'll have to start over. Just as well I had a backup of the resources for the original version on my phone. Shouldn't take more than a few days to get the current version updated. I'll get some work done for launcher settings icons and change a few things that have been bugging you guys, like the glow effect & nav buttons. If I get time, I'll look into the cm9 notification background, but no promises at this stage. Once I've got everything back up & running on my new laptop, I'll start looking at hdpi resources. Sorry its taken so long, but I've had real computer issues & I've been swamped at work. Thanks for your patience.

    Will add support for theme chooser wallpapers in the following update also. So that you don't have to dl the wallpaper pack & go crawling through your gallery just to set wallpaper. ;)

    Then I think it will be almost ready for play store & a $2 price tag. What you guys think. The goal afterall for me was to get my first app published on play store. And I think it's almost ready.
    There will always be a free version for you guys & gals right here though. :cool:
