As a fan of Deus Ex Human Revolution game I was trying to theme my Nexus 10 for some time. Using combination of UCCW, live wallpaper (by Makomako) and android theme by Ramazor I’ve almost reached my goal – last thing that wasn’t themed was recovery. Lucky for me TWRP comes with fantastic theming system.
I’ve made theme based on Deus Ex HR game interface for TWPR 2.6.3.0.
It probably won’t work with older versions! I do not recommend using it with any older version than 2.6.3.0!

Features of landscape version (2560x1600):

Menu:
This theme has live main menu on left, which means it is slightly different from stock “page by page” display. In my theme it is possible to jump between different active pages – it will cancel all selected actions and reset variables, though. So, basically it is equal to pressing “Home” and “page” button in stock theme.

Keyboard layout:
Added numeric keyboard

Terminal Command – keyboard shortcuts:
e2fsck - As I’ve had few times problems with restoring backups and my tablet basically froze in recovery mode, I thought it will save me connecting to PC and doing it via ADB. After performing e2fsck on all partitions (usually DATA was most affected) I could restore backups or flash new roms.

It is important to unmount partitions first, otherwise e2fsck will report mounted partition and exit. It could be done either from \Mount menu or another “shortcut” in \Advanced\Terminal command\e2fsck. These “shortcuts” require pressing “ENTER” button on keyboard.

This theme was designed to use on Google Nexus 10 and as such I’ve added only mmcblk0p7, mmcblk0p8, mmcblk0p9 to umount and e2fsck “shortcuts”.
If any one will ever use this theme on any other device, those commands might not work!

CLS button:
If anyone do not like “swipe left to clean” feature, I’ve added CLS button, which cleans typed characters in command line. (CLS is available only in Terminal command window!)

Remove theme:
If one will have any problems with this theme or will get bored with it, it could be removed and recovery will reload stock theme without rebooting recovery. (File will be renamed to “ui_DeusEx.zip” but TWRP won’t load it anyway – to restore it simply rename it back to “ui.zip” and reload theme).

Portrait version (768x1280, 720x1280, 1200x1920):

Remove theme option (as above).


It was tested by me on Google Nexus 4 phone and Google Nexus 10 tablet. It should work on any device with the same screen resolution.

Theme comes in 2 color variants: orange (Deus Ex) and holo (I rather should say: “holo-ish”).
As files are quite big, please verify checksum after download.

Installation:
Download selected version, verify checksum, rename file to ui.zip, copy via file manager or adb push to /sdcard/TWRP/theme/

Disclaimer
Theme was tested only by me as far as I could and I didn't have any problems with it but I do not take any responsibility for any data loss or other damage. Use it on your own risk!

I will appreciate feedback. I can respond to questions\queries on evenings as I’m working and do not have too much spare time.


UPDATE 1:
Theme now supports TWRP 2.6.0.0.

UPDATE 2:
Removed confirmation windows from Power Menu actions (restored stock function: "No OS installed!" warning message in case of no data on /system partition) - thanks to Nezorflame for pointing it out
Added "(sort of) Holo colors" variant - thanks to halrulez for suggestion

Holo colors: basically only orange color has been replaced with light blue plus new background image to match it.

UPDATE 3:
It's actually a small correction on both themes. I left mount USB storage with disabled condition and it was shown even on devices without that function (i.e. Nexus 10), I'm sorry!

UPDATE 4:
Another detail that I missed previously was corrected (one of consoles windows was slightly adjusted) , added "Inject TWRP" and "Re-inject TWRP" options (it will be visible on supported devices, I can't see it on my both Nexuses). Added phone (portrait) versions.

UPDATE 5:
- Added 1200x1980 pix version (portrait), file has upscaled bitmaps and that bloated it up to 10MB. I do not want to re-make any of the images because it would take a lot of time (which I do not have right now), sorry.
- 1200x1980 version has different keyboard (removed keyboard background, highlighted buttons)
- All portrait themes were updated to TWRP 2.6.3.0. Landscape is still for TWRP 2.6.0.0, I was too focused on fixing portrait versions and completely forgot to update it, sorry! I'll do it ASAP.
- All portrait files can be found on my dropbox folder, link below.

UPDATE 6:
- All themes (lanscape and portrait) are now compatible with TWRP 2.3.6.0.
- In landscape theme Settings menu items were slightly rearranged.

UPDATE 7:
- Fixed "Copy" button position in 768x1280 themes (both variants)
- Fixed "File" icon not showing up in 768x1280 themes (both variants)

UPDATE 8:
- Added MultiROM support for 768p themes (Nexus 4)
- Added "restoreDeusEx.zip" file for restoring theme after use /ADVANCED/Theme tools/Rename theme file option: file can be flashed from stock theme (or any other) but will overwrite any existing ui.zip in Theme folder.
- Added batch "ADB_DE_push.bat" file for simpler theme install: just copy whole selected folder on your PC and run ADB_DE_push.bat file. Along with "ui.zip", "restoreDeusEx.zip" will be copied to /sdcard/TWRP/theme (folder will be created if there isn't one already).

UPDATE 9:
Themes for 768p, 720p, 1080p (portrait) devices as well as Nexus 10 (landscape) are now updated to TWRP 2.7.0.0 (that includes small changes to Settings page). MultiROM version will follow soon.
(I do not have Nexus 7 (flo) on me at the moment, so I wasn't able to test it properly)

Important!

Sorry guys, look's like it will gonna take some more time to fix phone themes - I'm removing them for time being.
I hope I'll be able to make it work.
Please stop use it for your devices safety!

Files were fixed as far as I could - no one reported any problems, neither I had any, so I can assume, that everything is fine.
If anyone will have any problems with theme, please post details and I'll try to fix it.

There are some issues with TWRP 2.6.3.1 on Nexus 10 at least with ROMs based on CM (partition problems, freezes).
These are not theme related and I can't fix it. I recommend not to upgrade TWRP now, please wait for at least 2.3.6.2 version.


I do not intend to produce any other versions for different devices.
But feel free to do it yourself, just keep my nick in xml.file

Information:
There is no chance I'll be able to make updates to MultiROM version or any other version of theme. I simply do not have time and I need to focus on other things right now Sorry!

I'd like to thank all of you for support and all help that you've given me!

If anyone wants to take over please let me know - I can share source files in PSD format.

Below you can find link to all the PSD files, feel free to use them. Please read info.txt. Good luck!

Even though I don't follow the Deus Ex franchise, I can say that this looks absolutely cracking!

Will try this on the first thing when I get some free time with my N10 tomorrow.

Thanks! I forgot to mention that there are two sliders - one you can see on lockscreen preview in first post, other is bigger and thing that should be touched/swiped is that light blue cube on the left. It sounds a bit cryptic but you'll get it when you'll see it.

I removed a prior theme I had from the TWRP theme folder and replaced with this theme. Upon reboot recovery all I get is reboots to the TWRP loading screen. The loading screen is the prior theme though so it seems like its still trying to load the older theme that I removed and replaced with this theme.Any help or do I need to reflash. Not a big deal since I want to try the new 4.3 Factory anyway. Since I cant get into TWRP Recovery it seems I'll have to go back to stock and start over.

NICE! I love the Deus Ex HR interface style. Makes me dream of a world where you are just as technological as your computer... :eek:
You did a marvellous job there, the theme makes perfect use of the screen!

Could you give me a hint on how I can also get an android framework with solid xhdpi theming?

Sorry to hear that but I'm afraid I can't really help you - it didn't happen to me. You can try to push ui.zip via adb again as adb should be working even with TWRP curtain image stuck on screen. Maybe file was corrupted or something...

Thanks :D
I'm using these:
theme - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ramazor.theme.freedeax
icons - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.badwolf.grey.deus.ex
live wallpaper - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mako.goldlite
plus few widgets that I've made for UCCW and it's almost perfect :laugh:

Still, I'd like to see a proper skin for android that would use similar interface...

Not really :( I was able to make TWRP theme as it was quite easy (xml there is simple and hardest thing was creating images). Things you're looking for are way out of my league.

Sorry to hear that, I can't really help you with that. I do not have any problems with it and nobody else reported any problems. :(
Does it boot normally without it? Does it work with any other theme for 2.5.0.0? Can you run e2fsck on your sdcard via adb (make backup of your data on other storage before that!)? I've added shortcuts for e2fsck because I had problems with restoring backups but other people reported similar problems with their data or partitions on TWRP 2.5.0.0 (some of them went back to older versions). Can you repack ui.zip and try with it? Last one is a long shot... Otherwise, I do not know what else could be done, sorry.

Neva mind for some reason it didn't download the whole theme. I re downloaded and it worked. Looks really nice but seems slower...best theme i'm seen so far though. Thanks.

Thanks, good to know. I've updated TWRP on my tablet and I'll check for any changes in stock theme later.
Would this be awesome if it had the holo colors instead on the orange. I love it the way it is don't get me wrong. Any chance for different colors?
