    Please backup your phone before flashing this!
    Flash at YOUR own risk!!!


    Metropolitan is a Theme for Metropolis Rom 1.4.0 by Shabbypenguin in association with (OUDHS).

    Based on Elegant Theme by ThilinaC

    Including DCikonZ v1.1.5 Icon Set [APEX][NOVA][GO][ADW][HOLO][ATOM][TSF] by dcstudio.

    For the full icon set try an app called Unicon. It allows you to use Many of the great icon sets available for other launchers, with our stock launcher!

    Also Including SecLauncher2.apk 4x6, Screen Roatation and Wallpaper Scroll Mod by N4zty.

    Elemets of SecMMS.apk MOD by dead-angel.

    Also with Blue Glass MultiWindow Theme by whiskeybro. Stop by his thread for more colors and styles!

    A partially themed Morphology Patch for Metropolitan is available so that you can use my theme as a base and make it however you like! It is the same patch created by Team noobz and rompnit and made available to us by nuttmeg and joshadaniels04 in the [Wipe][Auto Theme For Our S3] thread. I have added to the patch as many Metropolitan Theme elements i could port over. Anything not themed by the Metropolitan Patch can be easily done so with Morphology.
    Please See Instructions for Special Flashing Directions!!

    I did not create many of the images and files used in this theme although I have edited Too Many To Count.

    Big thanks to Shabbypenguin and all of our devs and contributors!
    Thanks to ThilinaC for letting me use his Elegant Theme as a base!
    Thanks to N4zty for letting me use his Custom SecLauncher2!

    Thanks also to nuttmeg, joshadaniels04, whiskeybro, dead-angel, blgblade, --anx--, Team noobz, rompnit, and KIMBASINGER for their great work!

    As far as i can tell, so far there shouldnt be any major issues. The only thing i can find is this:

    Its a font color issue which i guess requires editing of xml or i think the back ground should be light in color.

    Also need to find the apk that the signal pngs are comming from. It dosent seem to be the two ive themed, even though theyre in there. Maybe twframework.apk?

    Thats for tomorrow. Err later on i mean.

    I was trying something but I unzipped the whole rom because I'm not really familiar with making a flash able zip.. I was waiting for it to finish zipping the romantic back up when I came across yours... Now their not my images just stuff I found looking around This is what I got[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The only thing I can get to work is when I make changes to the framework res...if you don't mind sharing is their anything that I should pay attention to... I'm exhausted from trying and failing... LoL

    I like what youve done. The dark blue is nice and i like settings icons. You should post it.

    Looks like youve edited systemui as well as framework. thats good. i dont know what advice i might give you as im just a beginner at this myself. I know theres a proper way of decompiling and such and there are tuts explaining how to use various command line apps. Ive never been able to get any of those to work out. So i just use 7zip to extract the folders, swap pngs and pit the folders back in the zip and test it. I used to use a website called uotk to theme gingerbread but never released any. It made it very easy to theme. Wish it was updated.

    Best advice i can give is to pay attention to the names of the pngs. The names cant change at all. Also, youll see the same pngs in multiple apks.

    Only problem I noticed is the color for the pop out that asked you like yes or no when uninstalling something using the play store the text and the button are the same color so you can't see the choice.
