Beaverton, OR
Here is a theme I have been working on for a while. I was inspired by Konikub's Aloysius theme with all the colors he started bringing us to the EVO.
I started with the Aloysius theme, Sapphire Theme, and also some of his Clear items like the lockscreen and rosie. I did a bit of a mix of the 2 different themes (changed a thousand icons or so) and then spent a lot of time trying to get every single bit of the grey stock icons replaced with color icons

Thanks and Credit should go to the following:

Konikub, GODZSON, JsChiSurf, Fightspit, TJDuckett, Wazzy, apristel, nebenezer, rujelus22, simplyphp, Calkulin, XxXViRuSXxX, BRIGHT SILENCE, Dinink, zone23, MicrosoftBug, slayer69, EVOme, Anderdroid , Myn, ricsim78, banksmi09, Stoney 666, fernando sor, jeffsanace

Special Request will be filled as I have time... Donations certainly do motivate me though! :D :p

AS ALWAYS PLEASE NAND BACKUP FIRST. I can't be held responsible if you brick your phone. I have loaded each and every one of these files and have made sure that what I changed is there.

Do to the over whelming responses and number of downloads of my custom color clock mods I decided that it might be fun to have a dialer and a call button that matched the clocks....So here they are....Matching dialers and Call Buttons. All these mods use the Glass Rosie theme at the moment but they look real good and I wanted to get them out here for people to use.....I might release the clear rosie versions depending on the demand....so PM me if you are interested in one without the glass rosie, make sure to specify what color you would like.

I just want to add a word of thanks to Mich2Ga for giving me inspiration to create these mods........Thanks man!!!!

Theme is perfect. I love blue but I couldn't part from the orginal Aloysius theme. I've edited the png on the Rosie Launcher, added the Kaws Starman icons to the App Drawer, and made the notification tray 100% transparent. Props Riptide9 and shout out to Koni for the inspiration.

I still need the all white taskbar with the colored icons, and this theme would be complete for me.

Fixed... Thanks

But I love the wallpaper, great work on that!

The only problem with the stock icons is that they are very montone and the point of this theme was to bring some color into it. I am still looking for solutions/options so if you come across a set that you think would look good, let me know. Thanks

Nice work. Whats the main differeance verse Kons color theme? I see a couple different icons? I like keep it up

It all started with his color theme but I wasn't a fan of the sms, contacts, and voicemail icons he was using so I changed them. Then I started taking bits that I liked from his sapphire theme that I liked and kind of merged the two (also the clear lockscreen and rosie mix). Now I have just been going through all the apps (facebook, twitter, gmail, phone, market, etc) and replacing all the icons that konikub hadn't done yet to nice color ones. I still have a bit more to do. I just keep finding more of the plain grey stock icons everywhere. :cool:
