But other than that I won't be posting here that much anymore. Take care guys and I'll update the OP."

Hello GUIse :D

Original thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=11309203#post11309203

SIDE NOTICE
I have gotten permission from pele (Original theme maker) to port this theme.

As I have now completed porting the "Gingerbread Theme" over from the SGS I decided to port another theme (Due to popular demand) This theme in my opinion is one of the best themes you can get for the SGS, but obviously we have SGS II's so I will be porting this theme as my next project. As you can see in the title bar, this is a work in progress so please bare with me as I start to port this theme, below is a list of things you need.

Before you start, you need:
- A fully deodexed ROM (I am porting this onto Cognition but it MIGHT work on others)
- A ROM that already has the extended power menu
- A ROM with CWM (Clockwork Recovery Mod)
- Patience.

Nice one mate! You're doing the Mighty North! Proud :D

Changed battery to the circle one ...that was my only issue ...

Really nice to have this back ....











Look forward to updates :) ..

Again thank you ..

Your homescreen is awesome :D I've looked at your sticky and saw a step by step guide on how to make it, P.S. Where did you find the battery mod? I might change it to that in update 1.1? It looks better, a link would be appreciated.

Thanks for the feedback mate and linking me the battery mod :D On the to do list is to change the dialer on the phone to "black" but I'm unsure how to do that :/

Heres the framwork with the battery circle.....thought Id save you some work mate :) ..

http://www.multiupload.com/JV376H8LG2...

For people that want this....

Unzip the file.....open the theme with something like winrar and move this file to the framework folder .....replace .....close and then flash with CWM .....

Done ..
