This theme has been revamped and is now available on the market for use with the T-Mobile Theme Chooser. Click here for info
There are some shortcomings with the theme engine so eventually I will be releasing the themes for Oxygen etc, but I am focusing my efforts on porting the theme to CM7 first

...presenting
JAMT
with
Smooth Animations
and
Customisable Lockscreen Backgrounds
for OpenDesire 4.0.35-.37, DeFrost 6.1 and Oxygen


I started off wanting a minimal theme for my desire and really liked some of the flat minimal widgets available, but all the status bars had gradients and reflective icons.

So I thought I'd make my own! I packaged them so you can have the flat icons with a gradient bar or not, there is a white and black set.

All icons are original, although obviously inspired by other icon sets.

This has taken a lot of work by me, please consider a small donation in consideration of my time.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oxygen
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Metamorphs aren't working for my theme in Oxygen, I continuously get bootloops. I've made 12 flashable zips which should cover most options.



Oxygen information here

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Granular Theming
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Want black lockscreen with a white bar? Want grey bar with stock lockscreen?

Check out this post for how to customise the theme even more with metamorph.

Many of the metamorphs are now incompatible with this these themes do to differences in framework. If there are any serious issues let me know.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Change Lockscreen Background
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The file /framework-res.apk/res/drawable-hdpi/lockscreen_bg.png is now the lockscreen background. The default should just be transparent black, however it is possible to change it using methods outlined here and here.

Please keep discussions about the lockscreen wallpapers here. This thread should be about the theme.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Smooth animations
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Battery discharging, battery charging and syncing as below. I will not as a percentage mod as you can turn this on within the settings of OD (Settings > CyanogenMod Settings > User interface > Status Bar > Battery percentage).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Instructions
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Download your desired theme (white/black, lock/no-lock)
* Download the XMLs.zip and extract it to your SD card. The folder "CMTheme" should now be created and contain 4 xml files.
* Flash the theme zip (not the XMLs.zip) as you would a rom through clockwork mod
*Zips are not signed - ensure signature check is disabled​

Choose your desired variant (flat or gradient)
Settings > CyanogenMod Settings > User interface > Tweaks extras > Select a theme.

Just remember you can only swap between gradient and flat, to change colour you need to flash the update.zip.

Lock-screens
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the graphite lock-screen. The only issue with this is the bars get drawn when there is an incoming call. As per this post To fix this you will need to flash this file in recovery. Took a lot of playing around with this to get it working but I think it's worth it.

These have only been tested on OpenDesire 4, and DeFrost - I can't guarantee anything,and my technical knowledge is limited - I just make pictures :).

Any feedback/suggestions are appreciated. If anyone would like to port this theme feel free to. I can try and help, but like I said. I make pictures.

Modded Google Search and Genie are attached here until I start A thread with other modded widgets, these are no longer updated as I don't use them.

Thanks to adamG and the team for Open Desire, some icons in screenshot (not status bar) by chrfb

Thanks to jercik for the Smooth Sense framework. It directed me on animating the icons.

Any donations are greatly appreciated and will help me continue modding (instead of studying for exams!!!), so if you like my work please consider it.

If you have time, would appreciate if you mod it to make the weather icon just sprightly bigger (like 2% bigger in size) when it shows next to the news flash. I mean when I put a widget and opt "News & Weather".

Thanks.

love the google search mod..thanks!!

Thanks!

Does it look b+w on the screen?
i mean if the widget on the screen is not activated?

It looks as is does in the image on the screen. No widget has been selected - I'm not entirely sure what you are asking though

If you have time, would appreciate if you mod it to make the weather icon just sprightly bigger (like 2% bigger in size) when it shows next to the news flash. I mean when I put a widget and opt "News & Weather".

Thanks.

I will look into it, it could definitely use a larger weather icon.

I've nearly finished my first attempt at black and white status bar icons - still not 100% happy but here is a flashable flat black(no gradient) status bar and simple B&W icons for Open Desire 4.0.15.

There seems to be some issues with the Google Search Mod on my phone - I will need to tweak it a bit and post an update.

Thanks for feedback and comments!!

I really like it, and can't wait to install it !!!

EDIT:
Installed the bar mod on my OpenDesire 4.0.23 ... but the bar background stays somewhat white. Shouldn't be black ? Icons on bar are fine, white and exactly as in your screenshoot. Only bar and notifications background are missing.

Make sure you haven't got the STOCK_Black theme selected. It needs to STOCK or the modified xml file as STOCK_Black reverts back to the original stock bar.

maybe we need an .xml file for the correct colors?

XML file is attached to first post in a zip which needs to be manual unzipped and placed in /CMTheme/ folder of SDcard.
