    ALH designs posted a theme on here for Liberty 1.0 (og thread). I really liked the theme so I decided to port it some of the way. I wasn't able to touch the services.jar due to complications with working on a mac and colorChangev3.jar. :mad: But I still think it looks good. It's really minimal in that not a lot was themed. If you find something you want changed please let me know and I will try to work on it. Or you can change it yourself and post it here. You don't need to give me any credit cause I didn't do much. Just clicked a few buttons and zipped a few files. lol.

    Themes


    Install
    • Already be running Apex v1.4 and have DroidX bootstrapper and a nandroid backup created.
    • Download the theme you want above and place on the root of your SD card. This is the main area when you view files.
    • Boot into recovery and navigate to 'install zip from sdcard' and click it.
    • Click 'choose zip from sd card'
    • it will be near the bottom. It's probably easiest to scroll up past the top so it takes you to the bottom faster.
    • select yes.
    • expect a longer initial boot.

    So I have about 20 downloads since it was posted. Does anyone have any suggestions to what I can change or make better.

    I'm not running ApeX anymore, so I can't really try it out, but maybe change the font color throughout the theme.

    man If you could do that you would be my hero and I would find some posts to thank you lol :p It just upsets me. I was able to get the colorchangev3.jar to work before but not now. I just don't know. The hex code I'm using for the icons in the status bar is 039fc7. So whatever you can do with that would be greatly appreciated. Whenever, no rush.

    And Raptor. I am using the Fontin font. I found it over at that XDA forum and showed it to Faber and I think he used it in a few of his as well. You may not be able to tell from the pictures here but its the one I used :D And yes. that is by far my favorite font! it's so clean.

    BTW. I'm only seeing one picture now in the thread. is that happening to anyone else.

    Ok it must be something with chrome I dunno. That's what I like about fontin. You can't really tell because its not extravagant like some of the other heavy ones.
