    [Theme][Elegant Theme for Metropolis Rom][v1.4.0]

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

    Elegant is a theme made by ThilinaC for the Galaxy S3 GT-i9300.

    This is a port of the 5.00 version of ThilinaC's theme for Metropolis Rom 1.4.0 by Shabbypenguin in association with (OUDHS).

    Including Black Glass MultiWindow Theme by whiskeybro. Stop by his thread for more colors and styles!

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

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

    A partially themed Morphology Patch for Elegant is available! 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 Elegant Theme elements i could port over. Anything not themed by the Elegant 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 quite a few have been edited.

    Big thanks to Shabbypenguin and all of our devs and contributors!
    Big thanks to ThilinaC for letting me use his Elegant Theme!
    Thanks to N4zty for letting me use his Custom SecLauncher2!
    Thanks also to whiskeybro, nuttmeg, joshadaniels04, Team noobz, rompnit, and KIMBASINGER for their great work!

    This is their work, if you like it, donate to them!

    The AWESOME Live Wallpapers in the screenshots are from [MOD][ALL DPI][GB][ICS][JB] Cosmic Flow white/black!!! by reaper61616 and are customised and modded versions of the stock Sony Xperia Cosmic Flow Live Wallpaper. They work very well, look cool, and run without hiccups with Metropolis and should with any rom including stock touchwiz based, CM, AOSP and others. Check them out for that Xperia look!! I wanted to include them but couldn't get in touch with him.

    Credit to ThilinaC for the theme that keeps giving!! Metropolitan is based off of an older version of Elegant and now this is a close port of his newest version. Two for one!

    If I flashed this theme...the only way to back to original theme would be if I had a backup correct...
  10. ARocker

    ARocker Guides Guide

    Yes a backup will do the trick. Just restore system only when you do. You can also just flash metropolis again without wiping data and you'll have the stock theme back. I assume you're talking about the stock look, right?

    Looks good. On it now. I have my sound turned off and the notification in the status bar is not colored as the others. No biggie. Thanks for this.

    Edit - the new "loading" circle/animation looks a lot better. The new download notification is nice and the recommended live wallpaper works well too.

    Glad you like it :)

    The sound off or vibrate should be greyish white and not jb blue like the wifi and signal color. Thats how the theme is...signal and battery are jb blue and notifications are whiteish greyish.

    I know this is somewhat the wrong place to ask but im trying to do it in part with this theme. But can anyone asswist me in putting a custom pulldown image?

    Ive been trying to figure it out but everythin ive tried just resulted in a crashed systemui

    Love the theme btw :) been waiting for it since you posted a pic of it on the show off your s3 forum

    One more thing what do you call the blue in this theme? I want to keep it consistent.
    Is it turquoise?

    Yea I'm taking about stock look...so when I back it up all of check is system in twrp if I'm not misunderstanding correct...

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it :)

    Reguarding the pulldown menu image.

    Edit: I forgot that the image has to be a 9.png which is not a regular png. So unless you know how to properly make a 9.png its not going to work. It involves knowing how to decompile and recompile the systemui.apk. again, you can't just add any png to systemui. I'd say that's why you fc when you try. Sorry.

    Edit: I'm posting the pulldown image from this theme for reference. Its a 9.png as the name shows but its not just how they decided to name it. The png is compressed and has black bars around the outside of the image (that you can't see cause its compressed) these bars tell the system how to stretch the image to fit where it belongs. If you edit the image without decompiling (decompiling decompresses all the 9.pngs in the apk allowing you to see the black bars and edit the 9.png) it won't work and you'll get fc.

    The blue color is close to jellybean blue. Its not the same as ics blue. The hex color value thats used is #32cefb.

    Thanks for the help. I didn't read what you wrote before the edit but at least I know to stop trying lol. I now have a random question hoping you could help out one more time. Is the lockscreen supposed to reduce picture quality?
    Anyone can answer
    Is it supposed to be like this?
  18. ARocker

    ARocker Guides Guide

    Yea its like that. The lockscreen is a shade or two darker. Not really noticable with a dark background. Its easier to see with a light color background.

    Edit: let me be clear...its not a result of the theme. Its the lockscreen. There may be a way to change it...I haven't looked.
