Hi all
Im Brobot175 (Rob) from over on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 forum.
A very friendly member of your comunity who goes by the name of mrevankyle sent me a PM a few days ago wanting a port of my new theme, MetroUI.
mrevankyle kindly ported most of the theme for me as i have no experience in Villain Theme installer so all credit in porting this theme goes to him!
I shall be watching over this thread and answering any questions about the theme itself but mrevankyle is going to cover this thread and answer any questions you have.
Well heres the theme!




^^^not what it really looks like but a good representation^^^

Metro UI - Brobot175.co.uk - Click Me




Check out website for screenshots and full change log

What is it?

This theme allows you to make your homescreen look like the windows 8 metro. It also themes your notifications pannel and taskbar to fit with the MetroUI.

What is it compatable with?

Android Revolution ROM but Evan may help me port it to a few more roms on the eee pad
To anyone else looking on this Forum is is also compatible with the
Galaxy tab 10.1
TouchPad
Kindle Fire
Acer a500
and Asus Eee Pad Transformer


Whats to come?


My website is brand new and still in beta so i shall be working on it to clear out any bugs.

I shall add tutorials on how to customize more of the theme like the widgets.

More Widgets.

Any other Bug fixes




If your tab for any reason goes into a bootloop just flash your ROM again without wipeing anything and it will go back to how you had it

Where is this "MetroUIFlashTheme.zip" file for the Asus Transformer? Or am I just not seeing it because the link is in the same color as the other fonts?

Sorry for all the confusion the theme system is the villaintheme system to get the file you have to go to the website scroll down to the asus transformer (do not flash the samsung galaxy tab ones they will cause boot loops) then click where it says Vanilla theme (it should say Villain theme but there was some miscommunication) then you can download the package and flash with cwm

Its called vanillathemeB4.zip (should be called Villain theme B4)
It is the same colour but its the first thing in big font

There isn't a separate download for the transformer. Just click on the Metro UI image(browser only:doesn't work in the xda app) then go to downloads

Nope dont flash that just unzip it on your sdcard. It contains all the files you need to set up the tiles. And you get desktop visualizer from the market (play store now i guess)

So last night I took a shot at doing up this MetroUI theme. So I managed to do up the first page which looks really nice. I wanted to continue but I realized that the ROM that I'm using (AOKP) has an update from v1.6 to v1.7. It's a full rom update and not an updater, though it's without wipe. So I carried on with the update and boom, when my homescreen loaded, all I saw was "problem loading widget".

So the thing is.. I've been trying all sorts of ways to restore widgets on homescreen after an update. I don't wanna do this everytime after an update. Is there any workaround for this? And FYI, I tried Titanium's restore application widget option and it doesn't work at all.

edit: FOUND THE WORKAROUND! Convert adwlauncherEX to system app and backup using titanium. after flashing a new rom, simply restore the app!
