Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise.

ADW Slide Themes for Android
If you are using ADW, for some the best and fastest launcher, XDA member JAguirre1231 presents this nice collection of themes to personalize your Android device. All themes are presented in two versions, one using Sense icons and the second one using Slide icons.
You can find seven themes to choose from, all very colorful and well designed, taken from HTC images and adapted by the developer to work with ADW.
This is the first release and some bugs must be present, so please report back so future versions can be fixed.

[ADW.Themes] Stock Slide Themes
I want to stress that these themes are [MDPI] Only .
A .zip is linked at the bottom which holds all of the themes. Each theme has two separate versions, one using the Sense application icons, the other using the slide application icons.
The themes are of the stock Slide themes (Nest, Hoops, LightShow, Wildflower, Surf, Nature, and Palazzo) made from images by HTC (I only made them compatible with ADW).
You can find more information in the theme’s thread.

However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
