    I have just installed Cyanogenmod 7 and I'm looking for a good theme. What do you recommend?


    Original Comment was....
    I like the Cyanogen settings but don't like the theme(s), so I've aded Cyanogen Settings to my LeeDroid ROM :)

    Mostly speed/performance, as well as being extremely customisable. I prefer it, since I don't mind not having sense.

    hi, where did you get this sense clone theme from? way too happy with CM7 to go for a sense related ROM and this theme sounds like a good option

    thanks

    Yup, NTSense is the one. I use the black menus version and also kept the cyanogen battery icon (the percentage + coloured bar) still.

    I've made this into it's own thread since we are off topic for a leedroid thread.

    You can see the most recent NTSense version in his thread, but this is the one I use:

    The keyboard is a bit too dark even for my liking, but then I don't use that keyboard.

    Nice

    I now have the Cyanogenmod 7 ROM, just going to look at some themes now :)

    I use the HTC Keyboard customized on gimpsta :) (Guide HERE for anyone that wants to do it - but make sure you scroll down to the customized keyboards part, as the rest is a guide only for Xperia X10)

    Off-topic...Just noticed you're a Lost fan, awesome lol

    thanks for the link. tried the ntsense-blue theme out and it is very nice. had a search on the market and found 'honeycomb 3D-3Dicons'. its very cool. my phone lagged very slightly earlier today but think it was due to a dowload not the theme. still on the lookout for other themes mind

    I tried it, seemed stable to me, but I just don't like the feel of Cyanogenmod altogether

    There's a 7.1 Release Candidate and reading some of the feedback on ROM Manager, it looks to be a tad unstable for a lot of people at the moment.
