I redid the middle screen, made the statue of liberty into my icons, think it turned out great, and the blue in the picture matches pretty well with the WinMo7 themed tiles.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

So far I only have the blue widgets finished, but red and green ones will follow. These widgets may also only line up perfectly on phones with a resolution of 480x800 (Incredible, etc.).

Here's the link to download the APKs:

Android7 Widgets - Blue - 480x800

Copy them onto your phone and install them using a file manager (I use Astro).

All of the widgets work (at least on my device) with notification badges on the "Phone", "Message" and "Gmail" widgets (sorry, I can't change the badge shape or color and I can't change this app from linking to the newest email instead of just going to the Inbox) as well as changing icons on the switches.

NOTE: I did not write the apps for these widgets.
The notification widgets are skinned SMS Unread Count widgets by "kanokgems".
The hotspot switch widget is Hotspot Toggle by Mehdy Bohlool.
The other switches are all CurveFish toggles.
And the battery widget is BatStat Battery Widget by Martin Eder.

If you have any other ideas for skinning 1x1, 2x1, or 1x2 widgets available for free on the Market, let me know. CurveFish toggles are pretty accomodating for reskinning, but I don't have a personal need for all of them. Also, if anyone knows of another good notifier widget for SMS, Gmail, etc., let me know.

I only reskinned the widgets. If you have any problems with these widgets, please try to download the original version for troubleshooting or contact the developer of that app.

Also, special thanks to mykela25 for turning me on to APK Manager, which made it possible to "take apart" the apps and change the images for the backgrounds, icons, etc.

Finally... this theme has been a lot of hard work...
If you like what I have done and feel compelled to show your gratitude I accept donations through PayPal:

Thank you, everyone, for following and contributing to this theme.

NOTE: Soon I will post new widget images with an updated font that matches the new Android7 Widgets.

Where did you get the blue phone icon and gmail icon? I didnt see them in the link u uploaded

The phone and Gmail are all part of the SMS Unread Count widget. When you add the widget, change the "Widget Type" selection to "Messaging", "Dialer", or "Gmail".

Hope this helps!

I personally just use the USB cable and set the phone to "Disk Drive". Then I just drag and drop the files over. Right now, I have the image files on the phone memory (possible under the misconception that they load faster) in the "emmc" folder. There, I just made a folder called "Widget Icon Images" and put everything in there.

Works like gangbusters. Hope this helps!

First- this doesn't look exactly like a Windows phone. This has become much more customizable than anything Microsoft can put into a mobile device.

Second- I can only speak for myself, but I personally got (and continue to get) seriously bored by everyone else's layout I see posted in the forums. They are all just the same icons and widgets rearranged with different wallpapers. And those rooting their devices who have their fonts or colors changed... whatever. (Most of them use ugly, display fonts that are not meant to be easily legible as a system-wide font.)

This is the first... and still one of the only layouts I have seen that is so dramatically different than any other that it drew me to really make it my own. With the creation of each and every icon, I made my phone personal to me. (Niteowl's layouts also fall into the "dramatically different" category that really set his work apart from everyone else's.)

It all comes down to this: Do whatever you want... stock, root, flash roms, download icon packs... but no matter what miniscule changes you do - the basic Android UI is still static and dull. Think outside the box and see what you come up with.

What's next? I'm almost done with a fairly functional Star Trek LCARS theme. Just working on a live wallpaper and widgets. Trying to keep pushing the envelope. (Imagine if I knew Java coding? There would be crazy apps galore!)

Anyway... down off my soapbox... thanks for following and admiring our work... even if you don't approve.

Well for some reason they are different on my phone and I just added 11 pixels to the bottom of your icons to get them to 110x136. Did you have multiple versions of the reskinned app?

Curt941:

You are correct that the icons need to be resized... for your device. Don't forget- the apk's that I made use icons specifically sized for a resolution of 480x800. Your DroidX has a resolution of 480x854. So my original icons shouldn't line up perfectly on any device that is not 480x800.

In answer to your question: no, I do not have multiple versions of the reskinned apps. I only did the one version to fit my phone. There were too many tricks and inconsistencies to getting each of the apps' widget images to line up with the Android7 Theme that I limited myself to only reskinning the apps for the 480x800 resolution.

Hey, I just want to make sure that you didn't update the app through the market. The new version is way different and doesn't size the icons the same way.

Sorry... this is the last thing I can think of. That screenshot doesn't make any sense. It would be fine if the icons were just smaller, but they're also 1-pixel lower than the adjacent ones.

I just don't get it.

Sorry, again.

Yeah, I don't know where the icons i was using came from, but i had reskinned them and they lined up.

I just redid all the applications for 480x854 screens, here's a screen cap. And if anyone wants them i'll put them on dropbox later tonight for people to download.



But notice the text message, gmail and phone icons i have on this screen are different, i got rid of them and now have the icons above with wording.

Um... your "droid" what? Different resolutions produce different dimensions for the icons.

I believe Curt has a DroidX with a resolution of 480x854. If your phone has this resolution, then something else is amiss.

Please read thoroughly Post 1 of this thread.

Off the top of my head, I would guess that you do not have the "Auto-Fit Items" option selected in LauncherPro.

That's a droid screen? That should be 480x854 like the droid x...not sure why it's not working.

Good call, Curt. I just assumed that this was not the answer because the actual label was not visible.

hi paul.

would it be possible to skin a gps on/off widget to match the others? curvefish has one I assume is skinnable...I have no idea how to do such a thing though. I have an evo so the res would be the same etc etc.

man, this is by far the most unique theme I've seen yet. great job everybody.

If paul skins it for 480x800 i'll redo it for 480x854 haha.

The one thing I can't figure out is how to get apps off of my phone to play around with.

I want to mess around with switch pro, but don't know how to get it off of my phone since i downloaded it through the market and it is on internal phone storage.

I've been using AppControl by CurveFish to make a backup of the apk. It saves them in a folder called "backups".

Hope this helps!

I believe Curt has a DroidX with a resolution of 480x854. If your phone has this resolution, then something else is amiss.

Please read thoroughly Post 1 of this thread.

Off the top of my head, I would guess that you do not have the "Auto-Fit Items" option selected in LauncherPro.
Sorry its just the regular moto droid 1. I do have "Auto-Fit-Items" checked. I think I found the problem. A few pages back someone posted photoshop templates for adding the text that I used. I didnt realize they where for the droid incredible. Which I believe has a different screen size.

You are correct that they are different resolutions. There are Photoshop templates for the resolution you need in the very first post of this thread: Android Phone 7 Theme - Page 1 - Post 1.

Scroll down to: Desktop Visualizer Widget Image Photoshop/GIMP Templates

Hope this helps!

man, this is by far the most unique theme I've seen yet. great job everybody.

Here you go: paulmz_Blue_480x800_Android7_GPS_OnOff_v2.1.0.apk

Seems to work okay... I think.

I will also be adding the GPS widget to the entire package link for DropBox:

I tried to do my own tiles for everything, but some of these were already perfect, so I'm biting style:






My favorite part about this whole thing is that it got me to buy widget locker, and I found out that I can still have the htc animated weather on my screen without having to mount the stock clock widget. I've been looking for some way to do this forever


and now that I've seen those great 50's inspired widgets, I want to start scouring the interwebs for cool retro ads and start this whole process over again. wheee
