Steel Blue v3.1

by Team Carbon
(markyyyy, edint3000, 00.ante)

For JPU,JPX,JPY, JP3 or JP5 BASED ROMS

LATEST INFO (updated 03/03/11)

> 3.1 changes have been released
  • Darky 9.3 phone.apk themed
  • Browser with UA settings
  • Latest Gmail 2.4.3.1 themed
  • Update scripts have been changed to make installation more robust for issues we have had installing on darky rom. (deleting some files, pre install to help with space)
> Some apps/boot animations changed to install in data/app and data/local respectively, again helping with space in /system
> Steel Blue v3.0 reaches 2000 downloads (over 10,000 for the combined versions) :) thanks for the support guys, and thanks for the donations we have received.... you know who you are... and we appreciate it :)
> Recently Updated....
  • Darky 9.3b3 phone.apk (now themed)
  • Latest Gmail 2.4.3.1 (themed)
  • Browser with UA settings (from 9.3b3) themed.

These files have been made available in a zip with just the apk's
Please replaced the correct file on your phone with these versions.
They will be included in a new update file 3.1 due shortly, but if you want them now, download the zip, copy them to the correct directory to replace your current files.
For Phone and Browser.apk these are to replace the files in system/app
For the new version of gmail, the file is called com.google.android.gm-2.apk
You need to search in data/app for the correct name of your updated version file, rename the new.apk with the correct name, and copy it to the data/app directory to overwrite your existing one. Phone will likely require a reboot for the changes to the icon to be seen.

> ***** IMPORTANT *****
We have found a few issues on darkyy 9.2/9.3 which we have almost cracked, basically darky rom with certain options selected, leaves about 18.2mb available in system, i think if you don't install swype and samsung and 3rd party then there is much more available, installing our theme then uses the rest of the available space, once it gets to 0mb free, nothing else in the theme is flashed which is why we have the problem.
  • here are some things which you can try to fix.
1. ensure that you flash zip from CWM (not darky config or anything like that). You will need to go in and mount /data before you flash zip from sdcard.
2. ensure you have circa 40mb of space available in system if not delete some apps first
3. make sure you delete the following from system before flashing theme
app/darkyy_gingerbread_keyboard.apk
media/bootanimation.zip​
Hope some of these help, if you do the above, the full theme should flash ok.
  • v3.1 on the way... following fixes being put in place
  • phone.apk from darky 9.3 with recordng (themed and included in our 3.1)
  • latest gmail, themed
  • removing launcher pro, and providing it as a separate zip.
  • change purple buttons to dark blue in phone.apk
  • plus lighter install (where possible apps/animations being installed to local)
  • If you like what we do, please consider a donation via paypal, either to myself, edin or ante.
  • If you can put a note saying SteelBlue on it, so that we know, and then funds will be distributed evenly across the team. Thanks in advance.

Info

Welcome the the 3rd instalment of Steel Blue.

We have taken some of the feedback from v2, and made some more changes, and being joined by a new team member (00.ante) has enabled the collaboration to make more changes and have more input than ever before.

This is the most comprehensive theme out there… the level of apps modded is unsurpassed (34 to date)…. We have tried to make the experience something that we all like, and hope that you all feel the same as we do.

We have all used this theme, during creation and are happy that it works on the JP5 platform. If you do have any issues, please let us know and we'll do what we can to help.

*** Known issues ***

We have been having some issues on odd occasions using Darky 9.2
(please note that the theme installs perfectly on doc’s 9.6)

As far as we know the theme and apps are working fine,
However please post any issues, and we will let you know if we can help
Issues seen:-
o Bootanimation does not flash

o Shutdown sound does not work (known issue with Darky 9.2)

    I've downloaded the full zip twice now and still am having trouble with being unable to get the themed Gmail. Any ideas?

    Try download apps only zip and if it doesn't work try this:

    Go to /data/app folder and delete com.android.gm-1.apk (or something like that; look in zip file) and also in /system/app delete file Gmail.apk. After that from zip file extract file com.android.gm-1.apk (think it's that name) and rename to Gmail.apk and with root explorer or similar program copy it to /system/app folder. Now reboot and wipe dalvik-cache.

    Question...now I'm in 3.1 flashed with no problem from 3.0.
    I noticed before flashing that I had around 20 mb free in system and not about 40 mb you mentioned in your post..
    Everything was installed ok..
    So my question is, in an upcoming update this about 40mb free in system is for people that install this theme from another theme or it also concerns also people who are just doing an update of this theme from another version of it?
    I'm asking this because I had only 20mb free and everything went fine...

    ///Darky's 9.3+DamianGTO+SteelBlue theme///

    40mb is just in case but for 3.1 should be 20mb fine like you wrote. Edin must forgot to add in 1st post

    It themes almost every application including those. even camera, gallery and video player are themed. I will try it tonight with darkys rom, it would be great to have it working. Darkys rom + most featured theme = perfection
