    So with the addition of MIUI and CM7 I thought we should have a thread that we can use to show off our themes with these ROMs because there are so many of them. CM7 will be an easier one to deal with. Just post the pictures you think highlight the theme your using. Please give the name of the theme you're using as well. With MIUI it will be a bit harder. I would suggest getting a screen cap of the theme manager "edit theme" page so others can see which components you're using since trying to type the chinese characters will be difficult. . .

    The main reason I'm creating this thread is so we can see what others have and use that as inspiration. If you upload your pictures to a hosting site please be sure to resize them to a reasonable size. And if you want to quote someone to ask about one of their pics please remove the pics that aren't necessary from the quoted section otherwise it will be a nightmare.

    Where did you get that theme?

    All I can find in theme changer in MIUI is ones with either the black and white not bar, or the gb not bar. Am I doing something wrong?

    Maybe I am wrong, but I have never seen an iPhone look like this. I am still on the stock launcher and just have all the apps in folders. Before this when I used GoLauncher I had all my apps in folder in the app drawer anyway. I love being able to mix and match the themes and just tweak it all.

    Thats a nice looking setup you have there. I really like your settings menus with its background. What part of the theme controls that?? And what is that sweet looking graphical display of temp and weather you have there?

    Thanks, the main theme set-up is hy5.8. This is the menus and menu background. The texting thread screen is really nice looking with this as well.

    For the weather widget that is Aix Weather.

    How are you guys taking screen caps without the "drocap has been granted superuser permissions" popping up?

    In MIUI it is a built in feature and you don't need an app to do it. It is volume down and the menu button at the same time and it takes a screen shoot. I know on CM7 there is an option on the power down screen to take a screen shoot too.

    Not a problem. I just have seen too many people writing off MIUI because of the Iphone look. The battery is not the best, but it works for me, but the rest is the best ROM that I have ever used. To me it has taken the couple things that iOS has done write and put those on Android with everything that Android does right.

    I am just waiting for a more finished version of it gets done for the D2G for my wife, she is asking me everyday when she can have this on her phone.

    So true. Its the best of both worlds. And what do you expect Gandalf, I do everything from my macbook pro so I am a little partial to apple. Please no throwing of the tomatoes or rather rotten apples lol.

    Does anyone know how to get the time centered on the pull down?? Dunno if this was part of a theme or a mod but I think it would be a theme

    I believe it was this mod, it's one of the things I saw when browsing that is reaaally enticing me to this rom. (Apparently I like shiny things. :rolleyes:)

    Any one recommend a good calendar widget for miui? I need a nonscrollable 4x4 or 4x3 widget. Tried pure calendar but it doesn't fit the screen right for some reason.

    I haven't tired adding a theme through the market. I download them separately, such as the link posted on XDA.

    Once I get the .mtz file, I put it in the following directory: sdcard/MIUI/theme

    that's how I usually do it. But I was trying to just see if I could get naked simplicity from the market. Oh well though.

    dunno he has it in the market and I wanted to see if it would work like that. Instead of chrome-to-phone the download page and download then move it to the right place.
