I'm proud to present the Evangelion SH06D-NERV Theme. Made especially to run smooth on our ace.
This will of course work on other devices but some widgets are scaled to match our screen specifically.
See their promo commercial here: http://youtu.be/Ouf4LfIxuo8

If you saw my previous thread about discontinuing this project, that was just an excuse to get some peace
and to work on my own pace!:cool: (http://goo.gl/lYiYu)

There are a lot of steps so I'm gonna try to keep this tutorial short and simple.
One of the solution was by making a video tutorial on how to setup the widgets,
you will still have to keep on reading since the video tutorial doesn't cover all the areas.

Keep in mind that one of the apps (ADW Launcher Ex) used here is a paid app.
(Which is why I didnt made this into a rom instead)
*note* this works just as well on holo launcher (if you have overlap enabled, don't remember if it's only available on the pro verions).

Lockscreen and Widgets:
The lockscreen is animated and interactive, the same goes for most of the widgets as well.
You're able to customize what app the widget should load up by adding a "hotspot" in UCCW.
Right now the widgets are set to:

Clock: Tapping the digits will start "Alarm Clock Xtreme Free"
Calendar: the same goes for the upper part of the calendar (UNIT ALERT!). If you activated a alarm time it will be shown under "UNIT ALERT!". Tapping the date area will bring you to the native calendar app.
SD CARD: Brings you to Samsungs "Task Manager"
Battery: none set
User phone no: none set
Weather: tapping the lower part of the widget brings you to the native CM7 "News and Weather" app.
CPU: The CPU widget actually shows the current battery, temperature and week of the year. Tapping it will open up the SetCPU app.
Volume bars: Send you to the app where you're able to change the volume. Try putting the volume down using the volume rockers and see the bars move.
Tutorial:
1. Download all the zip files down below and install the APKs from
the "APK_Modified_NBT". The Wifi Toggle widget is optional.

2. Import all the widgets themes from "UCCW_THEMES" folder to UCCW,
press the setting buttons for more options.
Open up Minimalistic Text and import the respective theme, "SD.STORAGE".

2.5. I added the Google Search Bar as a UCCW theme, download it from the second post and import it as well.

(skip this step)
3. And the reason why we're going to apply the CM7 Theme "MIUI4_NBT" afterwards
is because of the bug that it brings us. You're unable to read the folder names in UCCW after applying
the MIUI4 Theme. Apply the CM7 theme by opening the theme app and chose "Apply" -> "Apply anyway".
(CM9 Users: Link)

4.ADW Launcher Ex settings:
Use 4x4 grid on your launcher. UI settings -> Screen preference -> Desktop Columns/Rows (set to 4 on both).
On the same page, disable "Show desktop indicator", enable "overlap widgets"

Change your dock, Themes Preference -> Main dock (choose).
Reflections, UI settings-> Main dock -> Enable Dock (it should be on), on the same page, Reflections (on)

Transistion, General Behavior -> Animation effect -> Screen transition effect -> Zoom.
On the same page Desktop scrolling speed 200<450, desktop bounce 0
Wallpaper scrollning should be on (disable if you experience lagg when swiping through pages).

5. Follow the video instructions that put I together:
http://youtu.be/EvuBHD49qw4

6. Open up MiLocker and apply the theme "NERV_ONLY_NBT"
I put another alternative if you have Widgetlocker, it's more lightweight and smoother.

7. Show your appreciation by giving feed back! :)

Tips/review:
If you for some reason find it slow, try disable the wallpaper scrolling, using governors (smartassv2 in general).
If that doesn't work try using a RAM script, eg. v6 Supercharger.
Galaxy Ace users can also read this.

You should be able to use this theme without any lagg, post in this thread to seek solutions.

can you please make a flashable zip or something for stock? I love the theme but I hate CM7 battery life

Please read the full information, most questions are answered there :)

Great!
It is better than Glaeja, Thanks for sharing!
But it seems not suitable for resolution 480*800

I'm doing all of this as we speak on my OV :D One question though, what font are you using in the screenshots?

EDIT: AudioManager was causing MAJOR lag on my phone, is that normal? If so, is there another way to use a similar volume app/skin for the volume widget?

The widget is pretty light itself, so i wonder why the lagg? Does it at least look good when scaled on your screen? I could make a widget using tokaplot instead, but you're gonna get this kind of graphic, i will remove the text and make it look cleaner than the screenshots found on the play store.
The font your probably refering to is "bebas_neue". You will easily find it with a google search.
There is like 3 other font used as well x)

amazing work!
any chance to fit it to hdpi (galaxy nexus) as well?

The only android device I own in my household is a MDPI phone so I havent been able to try. You could try it out and tell me the outcome, and ill try to fix it.

    I managed to get a hold of the miui theme after hours of searching and registering for forums in chinese. I've added it below for anyone who is interested.

    Me being a themer myself I may possibly update this theme in the future. As for the themed apps QNBT; they are in fact included in the miui theme but don't seem to be showing up after selecting it. The themed dialer and messaging however do show up. I will play with it some more and hopefully we can get a full theme to use :)

    We're actually discussing this right now :D
    I'm gonna start working on a HD version soon!

    Yes; 1280x720 is supported via the Glaeja method, not the featured UCCW method on the mainpage.

    Btw, applying the 720px Glaeja widgets will end up something like this (I just added them quickly for the screenshots sake as I removed them due to uglyness);

    http://i.imgur.com/i81Ov.jpg

    Glaeja is just like UCCW completely customizable, so it is possible to adapt the skins to fit nicer.

    Here's the 1280x720 Glaeja skins, reuploaded to my dropbox;
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/3ltvcy102dycln4/720x1280 (Galaxy Nexus).zip

    Add them by installing Glaeja, open the app and click "import skins" and select the above folder. Now go to the homescreen, apply finger for a few seconds and put a Glaeja widget on your screen. Depending on your grid choice you need to select 1x1, 2x1, 3x1, 4x1 or maybe even 5x1 for the google bar. You will see a vague grey text. Click on it to adapt it, menubutton and load a skin from your imported folder.
    However keep in mind that QNBT stated that Glaeja might force closes or put heavy lag on your system, and as I have had a huawei phone once, I'm pretty sure it won't be the nicest experience.

    QNBT, you also asked what phone he uses on the Glaeja skin; he has made 3 packs. 480x854 (Practically all Motorola phones), 540x960 (Sony Xperia P) and 1280x720 (build for the Galaxy Nexus, but ye,resolution is resolution so it should work on that guys Huaewei as well).

    BTW; the guy I sent a PM to has responded :) yay for him not being inactive or dead or something, maybe we will have complete access to the sh06d system files in the near future :) with the real launcher and MAGI widgets.

    Damn :( I already thought I did wrong buying the Samsung Galaxy S and should have got the Motorola Defy back then.

    *update*
    See the 2nd post for the UCCW themed google search bar. No need to apply the CM7 theme to get the themed google search. Make sure google search is installed when applying it, since it's a UCCW theme and not a actual themed apk.
