Sorry, was on the bus and it was particularly bouncy this morning.

I dont think you can directly upload, only link image URLs from Phandroid app. Yet another reason that app is poor. [img] tags are only for urls by the way. You need to have a photobucket account if you want to link images, or tapatalk if you want to upload them.

It's just a wallpaper with a hidden dock.

The wallpaper was from a themes thread in XDA (the desire themes forum screenshots thread IIRC), with the colours changed and then edited to move the boundary down a bit (was a little too high for my tastes). I'll send you a couple of links.

Damn you hadron....damn you Dan!!....

go launcher is back on my phone and new screenies are abound!

I used Hadrons wallpaper...then through it into "Camera Zoom FX" and then just played with the colours and some things a lil...even stuck the Android on as its in the 'buddy' package in there...so all in all...not bad..



lockscreen is just the same wallpaper but through a different filter and cropped a little.

hopefully these appear. now only really use 2 screens apart from lockscreen.

Lockscreen (go locker four key theme)



Main screen



Mildwild Oxygen 3.5, go launcher with bar hidden with a swipe up. The icons on the screen are folders using Folder Organiser so apps stay in folders after flashing new roms. Calwidget for calender, SiMi clock (linked to Dock Clock for night mode)



Screen left 1. Widgetsoid to the bottom. MediaPlus for music widget. More FO folders up the right hand side for easy thumb access.

And that's it. Not the most exciting, but works for me!

Anyone know a way of extracting icons from themes for Go launcher, or ADW. So you can use them for as normal image files, and other apps like desktop visualizer?

Thanks for the reply Rasta, but I just found the perfect app that does just this.

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.redphx.themex&feature=search_result #?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5yZWRwaHgudGhlbWV4Il0.

ThemeX lets you extract ALL parts of a theme. Icons, Dock,s and wallpaper, and save them to your DS Card.

Works like a dream.

Andy.

Anyone still tampering with their Desire almost 2 years in?

I upgraded to ICS and must admit I'm really impressed. It feels a little sluggish when compared to Gingerbread roms but the available google widgets (reader, browser) and launcher are much improved.

As can possibly be seen from elements of the above screenshots I really liked the look of sense 4.0 but stock Android really is much improved in the looks department (I'd read that a fair bit but was skeptical to be honest). Think it might influence me towards a more stock phone next...

I upgraded to ICS and must admit I'm really impressed. It feels a little sluggish when compared to Gingerbread roms but the available google widgets (reader, browser) and launcher are much improved.

As can possibly be seen from elements of the above screenshots I really liked the look of sense 4.0 but stock Android really is much improved in the looks department (I'd read that a fair bit but was skeptical to be honest). Think it might influence me towards a more stock phone next...
Although quite standard, I quite like the look of this.
Firstly, what ICS ROM is that? Not seen one with those notification controls before.
Secondly, what is the clock / weather widget?
Thirdly, how on earth can you use Chrome Beta on the Desire. Unless its improved significantly, I found it tediously slow, unusably so on the Desire / ICS.

I ran ICS for a good few months, so here are my findings.

By this point, I'd like to make clear that it has had a huge amount of development into these ROMS, from lots of different developers. And for that, I am very grateful.

As such, in terms of bugs there really are none. Maybe the odd one here and there, but its a fully functional ROM that can be used everyday with ease. Everything now, like the camera issues (inc video), video playback and so on has all been fixed.

The problem I have with ICS on the Desire however is simple. It's slow. So so slow. If you are patient, and you have a deep deep desire to run ICS (see what I did there ? ), then its great. ICS is markedly improved over Gingerbread in almost every way. It's a much more pleasant interface, it looks much slicker and cooler and it just works better. And you really can use it every day. As I say I made myself for months. But eventually, I threw the towel in. It just isn't snappy, and that's what I like my phone to be. I was constantly having to wait. 1 second for messaging to open up and delays after clicking things. It's just not sharp to use like gingerbread.

So in the end, I resorted back. It pained me to do so, but I did it. I found that if I took a very stock GB ROM (I'd recommend dGB), and customise it heavily then you can get a similar ICS experience, or way better than stock GB and keep the same slick performance. See my screenshot a few posts up ^.

So all in all, ICS works perfectly. It's just slow. Whether you can put up with that I don't know. Personally, I feel its just one step too many for my old Desire.

Hope this helps.

Yup, and still loving it.

Though I'll be saying goodbye to it soon, I've no doubt I'll be changing my new phone, whatever it may be, as much as my Desire. And much to the wifes annoyance....

This maybe a long shot but does anyone have the old ibox icon packs. I previously had them on my desire and when I got my new phone I thought I would just download them again however I now discover that the developer has been removed from the market.

Failing that does anyone know where I would get them. My old phone used to be rooted and I had taken back ups etc would I be able to extract the files from any of my back ups ??

And failing that can someone point me in the direction of icons that are pretty similar. I have been googling for hours with no joy.

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to reply.

Sorry, I don't check here too often. Belated reply if you're still wondering.

I'm using Sandvolds Rom, the notification bar is from an app called Widgetsoid though.

The weather widget is just a Sense 4 clone I found on XDA, there are a number on there. Think I found it in the Galaxy Nexus forum. (I'll have the .apk on my phone still that I can upload later if you want it.

And I gave up on Chrome not long after I posted that screenshot. A shame as I love it on my Advent Vega tablet and it along with the new Cyanogen music app and Apex launcher were the reasons I wanted to give ICS a shot.

Hi guys,

Can smeone tell me the name of the app that lets you make your own text based icons?

I had it on my SGS2 before I went for a swim with it and now want it on my Desire!

Thanks...

*edit*

Nevermind, found it!

I'd guess either Minimalistic Text or Simple Text (depending on whether want a widget or just an icon).

But just my guesses.
