    Now out with many more features over 12.1:
    * Added Status bar 'Themed clock but only when Fully Connected' toggle on/off: Makes clock and battery level green or whatever the theme color is when fully connected to google servers.
    * Added Status bar battery icon on/off toggle
    * Added Status bar alarm icon on/off toggle
    * Added Status bar silent vibration icon on/off toggle
    * Added Home button haptic feedback on/off toggle
    * Added Status bar 'Themed clock' toggle on/off: Makes clock and battery level green or whatever the theme color is (blue, gold...)
    * Added Status bar 'Battery level' toggle on/off: show/hide battery percentage next to battery icon
    * Added 'No lock screen' option as lock screen selection.
    * Added Custom/Temporary Screen time-out quick panel toggle called 'Screen on'. Temporary will set your screen time-out to a value between 1 and 210 minutes and reset back to original timeout at screen off.
    * Added Quick Launch Panel: Fully customizable quick launch panel (as a toggle, select and/or reorder launch buttons - including Reboot, Recovery, Download and Power off)
    * Fully customizable quick settings panel (select and/or reorder quick setting buttons)
    * Fixed security bug (uninstall Deluxe Settings would turn off secure mode)
    * Fixed HTC graphical bug (when Deluxe panel and no button text was selected)

    At the moment, KI8 themes are only available for download, but I'm on KJ3, and all it takes is to alter the download script to test for KJ3 instead, and they work a treat (at least the 2 I've tried did)
    ie. Open up the .zip file using 7-zip
    open up META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script in notepad
    change KI8 to your firmware version
    then make sure you save the changes back into the .zip archive.

    your then good to go for a CWM install

    I must say, 13.1 is a HUGE improvement over 12.1
    Good work JKay.
    :)

    Right, for the thickies amongst us, if I've got a 12 theme from the kitchen, and download the new jkay version, will the theme still work?. And do I need to remove the old version out just apply the new version on top?

    :D

    Hardly a thickie Sydney99. Intrepid, daring, bold and persevering... above all, persevering.

    If you download and manipulate the v13 JKay theme, as described by hawker in post #1. You can then load it on to your SD Card and flash it in Recovery, after using the Ultimate Kernel Script, over the top of your existing, Kitchen, theme.

    Hope this helps. :D

    Installed. I dunno about Jkay themes but I used the ICS theme from The kitchen and it works seamlessly with AOSP deluxe despite it telling me it may not. Nothing seems to of changed other than I am now able to customise the status bar and notification bar a hell of a lot more. :)

    Hawker I unzipped the apk and the file path you mention doesn't exist. Please shed a light.

    The apk your looking into is the deluxe settings application itself, not a theme.
    13.1 is the latest version.

    To get a theme working for this, you need a 13.1 theme, but up to now, only KI8 themes are available from JKay's download site.

    You can either wait for him to post them up, or in the meantime, you can download a theme that you want, and then do what I said to the THEME .zip file.

    Ok thats fine. But If im using the ICS theme from the kitchen and it works fine with Jkay then thats no problem either right? I dont see what the problem here is? The kitchen themes are better than those jkay ones anyway.

    Each to his own Rudedawg... each to his own.

    I prefer JKay's themes to any of those in the Kitchen. I eagerly awaited a release, albeit modified to fit, for the CheckROM 3.1.1 and KJ3.

    The JKay v13 themes, together with the v13 Deluxe Settings that allow a myriad of configurations were well worth the wait for me.

    To be able to configure my drop down Notification with 10 of my favourite, scrollable, shortcuts as well as adding quick launch panel buttons of my choosing, not to mention the themed clock ability, the CRT TV and overscroll glow effects on or off and of course not forgetting the Power Menu with my favourite shortcuts including Screen capture.

    All this in a a clear, clean cut, no nonsense, theme is my ideal. :D

    Wait wait wait . Im able to fully utilise every option the Jkay settings throw at me using the ICS theme from the kitchen. Including everything you've mentioned. Im proper Bling yo. The Jkay themes seem bland at best. Those screen shots from XDA say it all.

    Personally I hate over blinged over complicated themes.
    For me, stock is best with just one or 2 small tweaks such as the circle battery mod. This added to jkay's extra functionality makes me a happy hawker! :)

    Just tried v13.1 Deluxe Settings and received the same notification.

    Works OK with v13 Deluxe Settings though.

    Weird! :thinking:
