    Here is a guide on how to theme CM7 to look like Ice Cream Sandwich. Make sure you are rooted. You're going to want ROM toolbox installed to make this go smoother.

    Step 1: Download ROM Toolbox, Ice Cream Sandwich (theme) by Kovdev, Ice Cream Sandwich CM7 Theme by Sonny, and Go Launcher Ex or ADW Launcher Ex (If you want to buy it) from the market.

    Step 2: Open Theme Chooser and select ICS.

    Step 3: Open ROM Toolbox. Select Interface. Then select Font Installer. Select Roboto. Select Install.

    Step 4:
    ADW Launcher Ex: Open Ice Cream Sandwich (theme). Select apply theme. Under Icons choose Ice Cream Sandwich. Under Main Dock choose ADW Theme and select Ice cream Sandwich.

    Go Launcher Ex: Open Ice Cream Sandwich (theme) and select apply theme. Choose the same things for icons and dock. Just like ADW ^^.

    There you go! :) It should look something like this.

    I did something similar but i did it with:

    1. Ice Cream Sandwich (theme) by Kovdev
    2. Go Launcher Ex

    And I gotta say it looks pretty legit I still have to download the status bar which is still green. Everything else looks just like ICS. :) hope this helps...
    Thank you, Mike153

    What's it called CM7 Theme Manager, CM7, or Theme Manager? :thinking: I'd like to try it out. If I think it's good I'll add it to the top. :)

    its called ics theme for theme chooser. I think you need the one for hdpi. Free on market.

    The background is the actual live wallpaper from ics also on market

    Is there a way to edit the lock screen to become the ICS lock screen? Or while on that note, can I edit it to whatever I choose somehow?

    for mine, i run g60 style with the ics theme chooser theme, the kovdev ics theme which i changed to have ics blue colored app names both in the drawer and on the screen, widgetlocker (even tho i dont like it, but its the only way i can get the lockscreen text to ics blue) and the transparent google search bar with ics border which i found on xda

    Check out Holo Launcher.

    It is ICS themed and seems really good so far.
