    So how exactly do I install the theme and clock mod I understand I need to use CWR, but what's the process. Do I go about like I'm flashing a Tom without deleting or wiping. Thanks for any help

    Yes, just like a Rom with no wiping or deleting anything. First install the theme and reboot, then come back into CWR and apply the clock mod.

    You can get it from the from the .602 deodexer and install it manually through root explorer, or you can adb push it to the phone, or just use this zip I made (through CWR):

    Blur_Camera.zip

    Any chance you can make a solid blue battery mod, with the percent in the midddle? Airmaxx originally did some, but they were 596 I think.

    Just do what he did, take one of my mods and replace the battery pngs yourself, it's not difficult to do.

    I'm getting an unlock sound when I unlock the phone, is that in the theme somewhere?

    Anyway to make the clock brighter?

    Can I just flash a 602 deodexer or mod remover zip to get back to no-theme, without restoring my 602 CWR backup?

    You can turn off the sound in settings>sound.

    Make what clock brighter?

    Don't use the .602 deodexer on this. Restore a backup instead.

    Uploaded my own version of a black/dark Market (newest v3.1.3). I left some color in it because I think it looks too plain otherwise.

    Check it out, it's on post #2.

    What clock widget are you using Bo? The one that shows the date, and wifi and battery state.

    It's not a widget, it's a wallpaper app. I downloaded it a couple of weeks ago when it was free though the Amazon app. It's called "wp clock full".

    Oh right on thanks. Do you see much of a battery drain with it?

    No, it doesn't make much of a difference.

    I'm using the stock power control widget and the row of four toggle widgets underneath that come with Beautiful Widgets.

    Go into /system/media/audio/notifications and delete or rename droid.ogg.

    Are you zipping them with compression?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think you just want to zip the files without compression.

    Hi bouchigo, another noob question:

    Can you list the steps to install this? I just installed ApeX 2.0.0 (RC3), so I have the Droid 2 Recovery Bootstrap app, and I thought that is what I would use also to install mods and themes. What is "CWR" ?

    Also, what are some precautionary steps I should take? You mentioned in this thread to make a backup. Do I do that with Rom Manager or the D2 recovery bootstrap app?

    D2 bootstrapper will boot you into CWR (Clockwork Recovery). I suggest you use D2 bootstrapper instead of Rom Manager, but either one will boot you into CWR.

    Create a backup once you are in CWR and then apply the theme, nothing special to do.

    Anyone else having issue with the PIN not being there every time you turn on? Meaning, I have set PIN NUMBER as my security and screen is off for at least 5 minutes and sometimes it asks for my pin and sometimes it goes straight to Kindle App or Homescreen (depending on what I was doing).

    I love not having to unlock screen first just to put my PIN in - just one of many reasons I like this theme so much thanks for your hard work sir!
