Here it is! Inspired by Dark Ninja's Android Taskbar, in cooperation with dandnj, we give you the

----------------------------------------------------------------


FURTHER DEVELOPMENT DISCONTINUED.

This taskbar thread will no longer be maintained as I've moved up to HTC Desire. I'm really sorry that you guys hoping for more editions won't have your dreams come true. But anyone who'd like to continue the maintenance are free to do so as long as you PM me first and get permission to do so.



----------------------------------------------------------------


Read about this taskbar in the article by [ElCondor] right HERE! :D

Supports VGA, QVGA and WVGA!
Supports WM 6.1, 6.5 and 6.5.x!


Along with this great taskbar theme follows this awesome wait cursor by Dark Ninja:

NEW BLUcursor wait cursor released for some versions:

Installation process:

1. SDKCerts must be installed first or this will not work! Download HERE
2. Find you Windows version (6.1, 6.5 or 6.5.X).
3. Find your resolution (QVGA or (W)VGA).
4. Download your preferred version of the taskbar and install.
5. Soft reset.
6. Install Volume Control hotfix (if needed).
7. Soft reset.




Volume Control issues?

If you're having trouble with Volume Control icon or buttons doing funny things, download THIS and install the correct fix for your version (19XX or 20XX).

If that doesn't work, you can try download and install THIS cab.



Different battery versions:

There are three different versions of the taskbar:
- Plain battery: This is like in the screenshots above: Just a plain battery with an icon that is updated every 5 %. It looks like this:

- Internal battery percentagee: This displays your current battery percentage status inside the battery. It looks like this:
picture.php

- Black battery percentage: This displays your current battery percentage status above the battery in black text. It looks like this:

Themes:
- For the grey background theme in the screenshots, download THIS THEME (mirror), copy it to your device, run it and select it in Today settings.
- You can download Dark Ninja White WM 6.5 theme for white taskbar background. Also recommended is the colour patch which will change taskbar text colour to black.
- The white Sense theme is the beautiful work of Kamill and ElCondor. You'll find Sense GTX theme HERE.
- This does not skin your Sense highlights (the number of unread e-mails etc.). Blue highlights are thanks to henk2484.



Thanks to:
Dark Ninja for a great Android Taskbar!
dandnj for alot of help with the graphics!



If you are experiencing issues, please provide information about your WM version, Sense version, what cab(s) you tried installing and what ROM you are using.

thats truly wonderful and congrats for this artistic look..whata bout a matching theme with it? that will b Ur USP/ what do u say?

Thanks! :D

Do you mean a Sense theme or a WM theme? There is a WM theme attached to the first post which IMO looks great with the taskbar. And as for Sense, I think nothing beats GTX!

issue

hello,

I followed all the steps for a proper installation but the new taskbar will simply not show. Instead i have the default one. My ROM details are in the signature.

Thanks.

It seems that someone are having trouble with the cab. We will look into it. Until we find a solution, here's a temporary fix:

1. Download the cab and THIS FILE. Extract it.
2. Drag the cab over the Cab2OEM.exe. This will create a folder with some files.
3. Using Total Commander, Resco Explorer etc, manually copy the files to the windows folder. You might have to rename the original files to .bak first.
4. Soft reset.

Sorry for this, guys. We will try to fix it ASAP...
