Install instructions
  1. Make sure you have JFv1.4x ADP1.1, RC30, RC33, ADP1.1h, RC8 or RC9 installed before you try to use this theme.
  2. Download file from one of the above links.
  3. Rename file to update.zip
  4. Transfer file to the root catalog of your SD card.
  5. Disconnect ExtUSB cable and shut phone down.
  6. Press Home + Power to start the phone up in Recovery Mode/JFv1.4x.
  7. Once booted into JFv1.4x press Alt + S to install.
  8. When install is complete press Home + Back to reboot.
  9. Cross your fingers and wait. If all goes well Android ought to be up and running my theme within a minute.

Notes: This theme has been tested on two JFv1.41/ADP1.1 phones, at least one RC30 and one RC33 G1 without any major issues, but I am NOT to be held responsible if your phone for some reason gets bricked in the process. ADP1.1h version also tested and confirmed working on one ADP1. RC8 and RC9 confirmed working.

Icons. Some of them are missing/"unskinned", I know. I left some of them out on purpose because I could not find any good icons for them and I was too sick of this theme to make my own. ;)

If you want to improve/change this theme then by all means go ahead. There are lots of things that can be improved and if you want to have a go at it I won't mind, quite the opposite actually. Sharing is caring, right? :)

Special thanks goes out to doooshty and dom2684 who both helped me with beta testing and feedback and found a few bugs/errors prior to release.

Idea for the tab:

If you've seen or played Silent Hill I'm sure you're well aware of the creature know as Pyramid Head. I think it would be awesome to take his head and make it the tab. Just a thought. Hell, it would be awesome if you could go from a cleaner theme and at a certain time have the whole thing fall apart into some nightmarish alternate theme. Long ways from that but fun to imagine, right?

I second that opinion. those icons are great! maybe add multiple wallpapers for the theme also? really sick of the retro-ish android's logo, bah! looks like a fat trash can with a face. getting REALLY OLD....
I'll include a wallpaper without the trashcan in my release :D It's a 30 second job to remove it, gotta love using layers in photoshop.
