NOTE: If you are looking for skins for 2.1 GB ROMS, I have started a new thread for them.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=14044618#post14044618

I have a few skins that I made when I had my Incredible running the Desire Z based ROMs...

I'm happy to report they all work on the TB.

There are a lot of skins available but not a lot have landscape support, all of the skins I will create will support Landscape.

Keep in mind that the Thunderbolt will only use landscape mode in Sense when plugged into a docking station. Now that the TB has been rooted hopefully that will probably change soon :)

If I missed anyone please PM me.

As always... I highly recommend doing a nand backup before installing any sense mods. I can not be held responsible if you have any problems.
If your ROM supports skins, download the apk file of your choice to your SD card and just install it. The skins will show up in your "Personalize - Skin" menu

IMPORTANT DOWNLOAD INFORMATION:
It has been brought to my attention that certain Windows operating systems will save the download as a zip file. If this happens simply change the extension from .zip to .apk after you have downloaded it.

Does the dusk have a working flip clock or is it non-flipping..? BTW, Theses look GREAT! Also, I guess we need to change the .zip to .apk..?

UPDATE: Figured it out... WOW! Would love to see this work continued... GREAT JOB!! What a difference and so damn easy... Would love a stock flip with your transparent stuff...

do you have to be rooted for these to work? I'm assuming so?
no root needed for skins.
Well the TB supports sense in landscape in the car dock :) Thanks again bro!!
I noticed that, now we have root I'm sure it will be a matter of time before someone adds landscape support.

Dusk theme is not a flip clock, the problem is that the flip clock in the skins used the flip images from the original framework so if you enable flip with the dusk skin it turns white as soon as it flips.

And yes, if your browser saves the file as a zip file just change it from .zip to .apk.

The work will be continued as time permits.

Check out the original post, I think you will find what you are looking for :)

    Is there anyway I can request this same skin with an internet button where the personalize button is at on the dock????

    Im running a custom ROM and I remapped the personalize to be a browser. I would gladly pay or donate for this mod. Its my favorite skin out of all and every time I change it I go right back to this one.

    Here you go.

    Make sure you don't have the Simple skin applied then install this and it will over-write the Simple skin you have installed now.

    Then go to skins and apply Simple and you're good to go.

    so just download and install? then they'll be in the skins menu?

    That's it, just install them and they will be in the skins menu.

    Awesome skins. I'm seeing one minor issue though with the new Simple and Inc S skins for the TB.

    The "Profile" widget (under settings) is offset - the inner icon, and text are not centered. Any way to fix this?

    It shows correctly in the Gears skin... But only the original with the gray framework.

    OK, I have been working on this all morning, there are over 1100 images in one skin alone and several xml files.

    I had to track down which one was causing the issue. I finally figured it out, it was a badly compiled .9.png file!

    Re-download the skins you were having issues with and re-install them and you should be good to go.

    could you make an HTSee with the browser button?

    If it's not too much work, may I jump on the request bandwagon and ask for a browser button for the dusk skin pretty please :)

    They are both attached.
