    What happens when ElegantSteel and Gingerbread meet?


    This theme is a mashup of the theme ElegantSteel by Jedipottsy and Gingerbread4Froyo by GRZLA. This theme is based off of Velocity 1.0 for Android 2.2.1 (FroYo) Both are needed to flash.

    Minor change, custom wallpaper added on flash. Look out for 1.1 with notification bar fix, coming soon!
    UPDATE 2; Apparently, 1.01 had problems in it, so i am temporarily rolling back to 1.0

    UPDATE 3: 1.1 is HERE! this brings icon fixes and a easier-to-read notification bar! YAH!

    Wallpaper (Layerz_H0CKEY) HERE: Wallpaper
    No need to wipe, just flash.

    If you are running Velocity then go into "Terminal Emulator" then once it opens enter "su" if for the 1st time opening it will ask for root permissions and press "Allow" once that is done. type "velocity" then enter "1" then press enter then type "4" press enter then pick Stock Gingerbread ,GingerBlue ,GingerRed , GingerYellow

    Wow that is beautiful, downloading right now! Thanks!

    Edit: Was the wallpaper not included? Still had my usual one after reboot and don't see it in any of the menus. Where can I get that?

    You need to update your scripts. Like above. I didnt read that right at first, dyslexia sucks. Sorry.

    If enough people want it on 2.1, i will port it to previous velocity, or whatever. Just request. That goes fer all of ya!
    Post your build, and i will port it for you.

    The only reason I am hesitant to download this theme is the black-on-dark gray in the notifications menu. It just seems almost impossible to read. Could you make the text white/light gray? Does anyone else find this a problem? Also, the notifications on the top bar seem to be gray-on-gray (at least the USB one).

    I don't mean to bash, just be constructive.

    I COMPLETLEY agree. These are being worked on and will be fixed in EGB 1.1 (Out this Friday!)

    I dont know if you could possibly do this but i think it would be convenient if you could get your theme put in the velocity script??

    Good to hear about the notification screen being updated, I also found that to be the only thing I didn't like with the dark text.
