Hey people heres my personal theme. I thought id share it and see if anyones intrested.
Its basically stuff from different themes, all mixed together with a few of my own touches.
I take minimal credit.

I loved the blue glow in the carbon themes by trinityEon and BrightSilence so i wanted to have that throughout.
I also used trinityEon's icons and black glass widgets from Bugless beast rom (thanks to everyone).
The sense launcher, lock screen, notification bar and other black bars were edited by me to be darker.
Special thanks to Leedroid, without him this wouldn't be possible.

Im using it on LeeDrOiD V2.3 but its said to work with most LeeDrOiD(Desire) roms.
Its also reported to work with :
-AuraxTSense 8.3
-Starburst
-LeeDrOiD 2.3d
-LeeDrOiD 2.4
-Alex-V 2.3
Its based on 2.29 framework. If your rom is too, its likely to work.
If youre rom is not mentioned then it has not been tested.
Please do not ask if it will work on your rom/phone because I do not know.

Enjoy!

Oh and one last thing... NANDROID

If you redistribute or use my work in your own theme give credit. Other than that feel free to do what you want with it.

Installation :

If not installing on a full wipe, jump to step 3.

1) Install ROM
2) Boot into android (at least once to build caches etc...)
3) Reboot into recovery (clockwork mod)
*OPTIONAL*4) Wipe Dalvik cache (Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache) ROMs with Data2SD script should NOT wipe the dalvik cache, because it will break the script itself and damage the ROM.
(I flash this over leedroid 2.3d without wiping the cache but with other roms you may have to)
5) Install zip from sdcard (choose zip from sdcard > *theme name*)
6) Reboot system now
7) Wait.....

Enjoy the eye candy!

updating (Dont wipe dalvik cache) :

1) Reboot into recovery (clockwork mod)
2) Install zip from sdcard (choose zip from sdcard > *theme name*)
3) Reboot system now
Done.

Problem installing? Turn off signature verification first.
Theme wont flash with clockwork mod 3.0 onwards because
of new update script.

Thanks for the info, im looking into it. Does it start to install or just give you an error straight away?
the problem could be with the flashable zip. Should have it fixed soon. Anyone else had any luck?

search_plate_global.9.png
status_bar_close_on.9.png
status_bar_header_background.9.png

or should I do it for you?

Edit: already fixed. will be fine if u replace this file inyour theme.

about your flashing script:

in your zip there is no /data folder, but in update-script u have line:
copy_dir PACKAGE:data DATA:

this can cause problems.

This looks really good, but just slightly worried..will look back later when its a bit more stable...will it work on pays rom??

Thats cool. I updated the download link with the fixed script file as mendozinas said to avoid any problems.

Yea sure. So you Would prefer the original sense clock?
I'll put it in the next version and upload it today.
The dock buttons are meant to stick out like that though.
Ill happily make a dock how you want it.

There is another issue that I'm aware of and finding some new icons
to fix, its because the notification bar is darker so some
of the notifications appear to be in a black box.

Time to go rom shopping.

Ive heard that it works with 2.2a so it should work with your version. If your gonna try do a nandroid backup just in case.

Yeah that would be awesome! I like the original dock.
Love the blue smoked glass theme. There's the carbon one but I don't think anyone's done the smoke glass blue yet, good job!

    Ok people update time.

    This includes :
    -power control mod v2(no bugs. It now updates with widgets. Thanks Mendozinaz)
    -blue volume bar
    -blue droids have been scattered around in place of default contact icon

    Thats it for the moment, im just writing a readme for how to change
    widgets in the power control. it will be in next post.

    Enjoy!
    http://files.c0urier.net/esk02k/esk0dr0id_black_and_blue_sense_v1.6a(power_control_mod).zip
    (direct link Thanks to c0urier)

    Rememer to hit Thanks. Keep me happy :)

    Changing the power control :

    Im going to keep this pretty simple.

    If you open up my theme (with your favorite archiver) and navigate to /system/customize/
    you will find a file called widget.txt
    This is where you choose what you would like in your status bar, what you will see once you open the text file is my personal preference and it should look like this :

    toggleWifi|toggleBluetooth|toggleMobileData|toggleAutoRotate|toggleFlashlight|toggleSound

    As you can see they are seperated by | and they must have this in between.

    Now these are the options that you can put between the | :

    toggleGPS
    toggleWifi
    toggleBluetooth
    toggleMobileData
    toggleFlashlight
    toggleSound
    toggleAirplane
    toggleAutoRotate
    toggleBrightness
    toggleScreenTimeout
    toggleSleepMode
    toggleSync
    toggleLockScreen

    So once you have made your changes, put the edited widget.txt file back in the zip
    and your ready to flash. Good luck

    Note: there CANNOT be any spaces between each widget defined, and the pipe delimiter (|) is only placed between each instance, but not at the beginning or end.
    The syntax has to be EXACT, and case must match EXACTLY. If you have an error in your list, the slot / position where the error exists will result in an empty slot
    on your power control bar. If you fubar it bad enough, you'll probably bootloop your phone, so please use caution and check your work.

    Why is the files name on mediafire diwnload link v1.5? Did you uploaded old file or is the name wrong?

    Oh crap it was a long night and I shared the wrong
    Link. Here is the correct one.
    http://www.mediafire.com/?y76zc6ebp6826uv
    If you flashed the last one flash this over it and it
    should fix problems.
    Sorry again.
    (hit thanks, that's all I ask :))
