Terminal Theme | KitKat and JB Compatible[/SIZE]

Terminal Themed LG Widgets
Terminal Themed Google Search Widget
Theme best when used with an oldschool terminal style font. For myself, I'm using clacon.ttf but the font size may be too small for some of you. The theme is selects roboto as the baseline font so whether you manually replace roboto in /system/fonts or you use a font installer app (I used Font Installer from the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrummy.font.installer).

Dev-Host Link: http://d-h.st/Ewm Root Required!!!
Clacon font Dev-Host Link: http://d-h.st/TIf Root Required

To install Search Widget, you must replace your stock LGSearchWidgetProvider.apk - MAKE A BACKUP FIRST!!! (copy the original file from /system/app to the root of your SD card, your download directory, anywhere you want but please, make a backup). RENAME LGSearchWidgetProviderTerminal.apk to LGSearchWidgetProvider.apk and follow the procedure below.
I use ES File Explorer and simply copy the file from my download directory, navigate to /system/app and then paste the new LGSearchWidgetProvider.apk and overwrite what's there. Next you MUST change permissions to rw-, r--, r-- and reboot. If you don't reboot, you'll find you're missing the search widget altogether. If you don't see the widget, you forgot reboot or you forgot to set the permissions.

Font Install Procedure:
Root Required, make a backup of /system/fonts directory to be safe (Font Installer allows you to do this through the app)
Install Font Installer (or similar) from Play Store (link above) and replace Roboto with Clacon or similar terminal-style font.
Reboot

Alternate technique to install font, replace Roboto.ttf in /system/fonts through ES File Explorer, Root Explorer, etc, or ADB push
Reboot

How much can you actually do with the theme? Just icons and wallpaper for app drawer and homescreen?

Sent from my VS980 4G using Tapatalk

Icons, wallpaper, and homescreen menus. I'm looking into if I can do more with the sdk, the theming app is pretty limited.





Nice themes, only one thing, the icons could have been sharper on now theme:cowboy:

But looking foreward to more themes from you!

Thanks for the input! They looked fine to me but I'm not too picky, lol.

You can also theme the LG widgets and the status bar background and set the font. See @RocketSauce83's thread here for examples. It would be cool if they allow for more. I have not tried making one yet but I wonder how hard it would be to add to the list of apps that the theme applies icons to automatically on the homescreen and app drawer... It would be great to have a theme template that we could just add icons from icon packs to and have more or most icons themed without the user having to set each one.

I'll check out the thread, thanks! As for adding more icons, I decompiled the apk and it looks doable, I'm not a developer though so I have some trial and error testing ahead of me.

Just an fyi, I don't have much free time but I definitely will be pursuing this. Keep the input coming, it's much appreciated! !

@OP
Do u think u can make a theme that can theme all icons?! like icon mask for unicon and icon packs?!
Good work and thx!

That is partly what I'm looking into this weekend. No theme will be able the theme everything, but I definitely want to try to theme more on install.


1st draft of a new wallpaper is done. Hoping to make some new icons today. :)

    Drum roll please..... OP Updated!! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=51010939#post51010939

    These new themes were a PITA but I finally got them posted! Thanks for your patience, I didn't mean for so much time to pass after I posted the teaser pic :) . Please note, the only way to get the themed Google Search widget, you must be rooted. Please, please, please make a backup and follow the instructions. I use ES File Explorer but you can do the same procedure with any root explorer or with ADB. Either way, 1100 freakin icons, 2 themes to support dark or light wallpapers... I hope you think they're as epic as I do!
