Introduction,


This theme is made for anyone who is looking for a more elegant user interface in their Samsung Galaxy S3's & for those who simply don't like Samsung's plastic looking touchwiz ui ;) Theme is inspired by Sony Xperia NXT design & UI !
For now only support Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 stock deodexed firmwares and any rom based on these firmwares.Maybe in future I will make a theme for cm theme chooser but this is a big maybe since cm is not that stable in S3 yet.

Over 1000 icons from stock Samsung apps are changed :D lot more is theme'd than what is shown in sshots And this theme @ version 1.00 is still a work in progress,there are more things needs to be theme'd ;)
What's theme'd in v7 beta



  • Boot Animation from S5
  • Chrome Browser
  • Clock app - Half done atm
  • Framework 100%
  • Job Manager
  • SecGallery2014 - move the apk to system\app from pri-pp folder
  • Google Play
  • Camera App - Half
  • Calculator...

Instructions



  1. Install the latest Archiport version.
  2. Install a S5 app mod pack.
  3. Move SecGallery2014.apk to system\app from priv-app folder.
  4. Take a cwm backup.
  5. Install the theme & reboot.

If you don't follow the * steps then it will probably boot loop or the apps won't be themed !


Downloads & change-logs are in second post



In the recent months I had lot of exams and my part time job was taking all the time I had so sorry it took long time to update the theme to support latest fw's.I am juggling studies on cima,8 exams before September and job with the university degree.So if you enjoy my work and think I deserve something please consider and add a small donation through paypal :) This will help me with my degree as expenses are very high when u are a student living alone with a odd job :/



Also I will update the theme and theme each other sammy system apk's left in coming months, but due to exams it will take some time but I will do it :)


Thanks !

MaxXa theme machan. I like it...great work...... Thank you! :good::good: [dileeshakr]

එල මචන් තෑන්ක්යු කිව්ව :D

Gonna try it in a while, will report back for sure.

Been expecting this for quite a while, it looks beautiful! Thanks! :highfive::D

Edit: Works on XELLA, no FCs but I need to test more.

if it should fc then probably systemui should fc,so if systemui works then theme should be working fine =)
so can I update the op and add support for LA fw now?

Does this theme automatically decrease the dpi?

nope,use bala's dpi mods if you want 240dpi enabled
but theme supports both 240dpi & 320dpi

Yes SystemUI FCs :( tried with a deodex and it did FC, with odexed it did not.

Also some apps that are listed in the OP appear unthemed (Clock, Camera).

I'd rather wait for the supported version.:highfive: Theme is excellent.

A humble request :

Any chance of a flashable mod or addon to have gray statusbar, I prefer it that way to avoid uneven pixels in amoled.

Or some instructions on how to accomplish this please, I'd do it myself . :eek:

Thank you very much!
