    Hi!

    I've ported the new theme from Android 2.3 gingerbread to GAOSP. It works great and looks very nice in my opinion, and I thought some of you might also be interested in this look. This does only include modifications to framework-res.apk, no application icon or interface is changed.

    Most credit goes to krispijn_s @ XDA, whose resized image-files I've used.

    Installation instructions

    1. Download the latest version of the theme (GingerbreadGAOSP_*.*.zip) to the Galaxy internal SDcard
    2. Reboot in recovery:
      • Make a nandroid backup (makes life so much easier if something goes wrong ;))
      • Fix packages permissions
      • Apply any zip from sd -> point to GingerbreadGAOSP_*.*.zip
      • Reboot
    3. Navigate to "Settings->CyanogenMod settings->User interface->Tweaks extras->Select a theme" and choose "gingerbread"
    4. Optionally change your notification power widget indicator color to something like #ffaaff00
    5. Enjoy a sleek dark UI, perfect for the Galaxy's AMOLED screen :D

    Installed, but why can't I see much difference?Just the notification bar is changed a bit. Wallpaper is the same grey armor thing as before.

    Edit; Icons are new, too.

    Also install gingerbread keyboard, you will like it. :p

    P.S: don't forget to apply Obi's fix (it's worth it) - now we have 0.71 WIP build ;)

    If you didn't do a full wipe it should work, but it's always recommended to do a full wipe 'cause each build brings something new in system data - in this case new Wi-Fi drivers. Wipe which keeps system data doesn't always works like it should. So if you get some weird behavior don't blame it on Drakaz & co.

    Edit: is seems like the new market really slowed things alot does it not?

    This one should work with the Beta 3. It seems like Frojd didn't update the first post. ;)

    Already forgot about this theme.
    Reason - some guy named DaS********** made his themes for Galaxy running on GAOSP Beta 3. ;)
