This is my setup. I've been getting tons of PM's asking for icons, and how I made it
'look' like that. So I'm going to teach you. Everytime I make something new and
exciting, I'll post it, and see if you guys want that as well. >_>

View some of my concepts here.


[decadence](pictured above)
_____________________

Step One: Download this file, and place the contents on your sd card.
edit: bonus rainbow wallpaper: clicky

Step Two: Install modded LauncherPro.apk [v0.8.1.0](Uninstall previous version)
ONLY IF YOU HAVE PLUS, OTHERWISE REGULAR LAUNCHERPRO WILL WORK.
(You may substitute a different modded apk if you desire.

Step Three: Set LauncherPro as default homescreen, and add the preferred
wallpaper from the 'wallpaper' folder to be your wallpaper.

Step Four: Go to Preferences in LauncherPro, and disable wallpaper scrolling
(under appearance settings) and set both Columns and Rows to max [10] (under
homescreen settings).

Step Five: If you have the plus versions, use one of your homescreens to add a
widget, and resize it to where it fits in the frame.

Step Six: Install battstat from market and place it wherever suits you (I
chose right corner)

Step Seven: Install Desktop Visualizer (For Icons)
--------OPTIONAL: Install FolderOrganizer, and set up folders. Then have the
desktop visualizer link to folders rather than apps, that makes it easier and
is what I do.)

Step Eight: Place icons using desktop visualizer (icons conveniently located
in the 'icons' folder in both black and white)
-note: only six icons are included, for more visit this link. For white, invert
them using image editing software

Step Nine: Set up your dock, I use all five slots, but use a transparent icon
(blank.png in icons) and the App icon for the drawer. You can set it up
however you like.



Second Theme:

[elegance]


Step One: Download this file, and place the contents on your sd card.

Step Two: Install modded LauncherPro.apk [v0.8.1.0](Uninstall previous version)
this is located in the 'apps' folder. The Calendar requires plus, and I highly recommend you buy it.

Step Three: Set LauncherPro as default home, and add the preferred
wallpaper from the 'wallpaper' folder to be your wallpaper. (blackwall is shown)

Step Four: Go to Preferences in LauncherPro, and disable wallpaper scrolling (optional)
(under appearance settings) and set both Columns and Rows to max [10] (under homescreen settings).

Step Five: Install "Analog Clock Collection" and "Desktop Visualizer" from market.

Step Six: Add the Calendar Widget to your homescreen, resize to fill half of the bar on top

Step Seven: Add a clock of your choice from "Analog Clock Collection" and resize it to fit other half
#23 is the one I used.

Step Seven: Install Desktop Visualizer (For Icons)
--------OPTIONAL: Install FolderOrganizer, and set up folders. Then have the
desktop visualizer link to folders rather than apps, that makes it easier and
is what I do.)

Step Eight: Place icons using desktop visualizer (icons conveniently located
in the 'icons' folder in both black and white)
-note: only six icons are included, for more visit this link. For white, invert them using image editing software

Step Nine: Set up your dock, I use all five slots, but use a transparent icon s
(blank.png in icons). You can set it up however you like. There is a dock background
included, but it is entirely optional.

This is theme is highly inspired by Signal23's Neue theme for the Hero.




Third Theme:

[eloquence]


Step One: Download this file, and place the contents on your sd card.

Step Two: Have LauncherPro. If no have, then get.

Step Three: Set LauncherPro as default home, and add the preferred
wallpaper from the 'wallpaper' folder to be your wallpaper. (autumnhead is shown)
BONUS WALLPAPER: WatermelonGirl

Step Four: Go to Preferences in LauncherPro, and disable wallpaper scrolling (optional)
(under appearance settings) and set both Columns and Rows to max [10] (under homescreen settings).

Step Five: Install "Analog Clock Collection" and "Desktop Visualizer" from market.

Step Six: Add a clock of your choice from "Analog Clock Collection" and resize it to fit the corner
#23 is the one I used.

Step Seven: Install Desktop Visualizer (For Icons)
--------OPTIONAL: Install FolderOrganizer, and set up folders. Then have the
desktop visualizer link to folders rather than apps, that makes it easier and

(blank.png in icons). You can set it up however you like. There is a dock background

Fourth Theme:

[eminence]

Step One: Download this file, and place the contents on your sd card.

Step Two: Have LauncherPro. If no have, then get.

Step Three: Set LauncherPro as default home, and add the preferred
wallpaper from the 'wallpaper' folder to be your wallpaper. (plant is shown)

Step Four: Go to Preferences in LauncherPro, and disable wallpaper scrolling (optional)
(under appearance settings) and set both Columns and Rows to max [10] (under homescreen settings).

Step Five: Install "One More Clock" (by xaffron) UPDATE: new version of clock on market - from sdcard and "Desktop Visualizer" from market.

Step Six: Add a clock of your choice from "one more clock" and place it to fit the box
I used Bokeh. Tap clock to change theme.

Step Seven: Install Desktop Visualizer (For Icons)
--------OPTIONAL: Install FolderOrganizer, and set up folders. Then have the
desktop visualizer link to folders rather than apps, that makes it easier and
is what I do.)

Step Eight: Place icons using desktop visualizer
(icons are copyright to iDroid)

Step Nine: Set up your dock, I use all five slots, but use a transparent icon
(search for blank.png on google). You can set it up however you like. There is a dock background
included, but it is entirely optional.




Any questions, feel free to ask.
Also, included in some of the wallpaper folders,
you'll find a psd with a few layers so you can
maker your own background, but still have the
customizations I made. =D

How do you fit the icons into the black bar? I use your icons and use the DV widget (super small) and still doesnt fit in between the bars. Am I missing something?

Adjust your screen size to 10 x 10, and if that doesn't work,
slowly bring it down until they fit. It works at 10x10 on my n1

Also, try resizing the widgets until they fit
if you size it like this

the icon will set in the middle.

Hi,
I chose the Theme2 and it's really amazing : thank you for your job !

Just one problem : the "Friend" widget (but also the FB one) are written in black...and it's really difficule to read :(
Is there a way to change any setting to have all in white ?
I don't want any background, it's really cool like that, but I would like to have only all the text in white...

Thanks !

Lol, well, for future reference, resize it by, on the home page, go Menu - Preferences - Homescreen settings. Set number of rows and columns to 10.

Oh ok I did that as per instructions to change the rows and columns 10x10. That is when all the icons shove to the upper left side of the screen?

But I have theme2 going right now and works for me thanks!
