    Enough's enough! I've been waiting for themes for Pete's GPA builds, which are by far the best set of ROMs I've tested. I've sat back and watched so many other ROMs for the Droid get themes, including the infamous "Theme Manager," which can be a pain sometimes since it conflicts with some apps sometimes.....(deep breath)......

    What's up Android users!! My name is Ronald, but it's easier to remember "Mike," so call me Mike instead lol. I'm new to theming, but luckily I've been toying around with this stuff for a while, I thought I'd put it to some use lol. I guess I'll step up and start theming Pete's ROMs until I'm come across something to difficult (highly doubt) lol.

    Installation Tips and Instructions:

    • Do a nandroid backup!! Although I test run all themes before releasing it, our phones are different in small ways....
    • Never install theme over theme. Unless you want to be stuck at the "M" screen or get boot loops....Reinstall the ROM you installed so it'll flash back to stock apps, framework, etc..., then install another theme. Clearing cache is something I do just in case....
    • All Themes are ClockworkMod friendly....No Metamorphs, I'm not there yet lol.
    Please adhere to these tips and instructions...It may cause issues if you don't and I won't be held responsible for it. You've been fore-warned. Otherwise....Enjoy Ladies and Gents!!

    I tried it out, but wasn't crazy about the font. It looked really nice though, good job. I'll check out that link.

    Good to see you in the theming game Mike. The screens look real nice. I've moved onto the thunderbolt now but my old girl is still alive and well and being used by my wife. I will have to see if she will let me install this. I will let you know.

    Big fan of Pete's GPA roms, and I've been waiting for a theme for it to pop up that I liked. This looks like it has promise. Thanks for putting it out there, will post back later after I've had some time to dabble with it.

    edit: simple flash with no issues. liking the font and color changes, although the icon changes will take some getting used to. ill see how she runs throughout the day at work.

    Yeah I'm getting a Thunderbolt real real soon.I like the way things are going with the development for it...
    I'll definitely be theming on that phone....as for now, well I'm gaining experience using the OG Droid. I know the framework and stuff may be a little more difficult with the Thunderbolt.....I may be wrong, haven't taken a good look yet.... But I'm definitely getting one hands down.....no questions. Gotta get my fiancee one in the process lol. Since I'm doing this stuff with Android, her way of coping with it is....whatever you do to your phone, I want done to mines lol....Just gotta go along with it, so I can continue to support Android with her support lol. My lady comes first lol

    I'll be updating with stock font later on this evening. I've gotten a few complaints about the font...enough to make me switch it.... Right now I'm working on NexTheme, so you know lol.

    I've also receive a small complaint about the mms.apk not receiving mms messages properly. I used the mms.apk from aother ROM, but if I have to theme Pete's mms.apk I'll just have to do it....

    The only nag I have is having the translucency of the mms app, showing the wallpaper through. The thin font in black just doesnt show up well against my wallpaper.

    [​IMG]

    There a way to change the background opacity so as to not have the wallpaper showing through? Only issue I have had with this theme.

    I'm interested to check out your theme, but the link seems to be down. Is that a temporary problem or did you remove it?

    Let me know when you get the mms.apk fixed.

    Thanks!!
