This is an updated version of my first Full Blue Ginger theme and uses NeatROM Lite base files.

Unlike the previous version, most of this one is built as a VRTheme (enabling me to reduce it's size from 47MB to 19MB) and, as I've re-signed the modded SystemUI.apk and disabled signature checking in services.jar, VRThemes can be flashed over the top so that things like the battery icons etc. can be changed easily.

It theme should be flashed in CWM Recovery over a clean install of NeatROM Lite (i.e. no mods flashed before this) or, if you've flashed mods, flash one of the NeatROM Lite Restorer zips first and then flash the theme.

Always take a Nandroid backup before you flashing these zips - even if you're running NeatROM Lite! (and make sure that the \preload partition is included in the backup)

As this is a personal theme, I won't be modifying it for anyone, but feel free to use it as a base for your own theme and modify it yourselves ;)

Full 23 Toggles Blue Ginger Plus theme for NeatROM 5.6 (XWMS2)


Minimal blue theme for NeatROM 6.4 (XWMS3)
Having got my S2 back as a second phone, I've updated it to NeatROM 6.4 and put together a cut down version of this theme for it as there's still far too much Samsung green...

It's just for the 10 toggles version as this is the one I use - there probably won't be one for the S5 toggles version.

v1_Blue_NeatROM_6.4_10t_XFormAPK.zip
Blue theme to remove most Samsung green from NeatROM 6.4 10t version

v2_Blue_NeatROM_6.4_10t_XFormAPK.zip
As above but includes blue material style animated checkboxes & radio buttons
If anyone wants green stock material style animated checkboxes & radio buttons but not the blue theme, they can download this version of the blue theme, open it with 7-Zip, delete the theme folder and then flash it via recovery. This will work for both the 10t AND the s5t versions as it simply replaces framework-res.apk

Revert_Blue_NeatROM_6.4_10t_XFormAPK.zip
Removes the blue theme and revert back to NeatROM 6.4 10t version.

I'll make "revert" zips for each mod when I get the chance, meanwhile, just re-flash the theme over the top.

[EDIT] Revert zips added [/EDIT]

Hey Spanna first of all I want to thank you for this great masterpiece of yours! I love blue as it is my favorite color. I just want to know, is it possible to restore the stock recent apps theme? I like the 3D style you made to this theme, but I'm used to the old-fashion one. :cool:

Cheers :)

The best place to find icons is here on XDA - especially the Android Themes forum

Find the ones you want, re-size/re-name them if necessary, put them in an empty VRTheme.zip and flash it.

Don't forget to ask permission from the original poster if you want to publish your vrtheme ;)

To change back to the old recent apps layout would take a while as it'd involve editing xml and smali and, TBH, I like the new layout much better than the old one - it just takes a while to get used to.

Okay then it was just a wishful thinking. :) I'm pretty sure I'll get used to it, sooner than later. :thumbup:
