Custom HTC_IME Skinning Made Easy

If you’ve installed jonasl‘s modded HTC_IME keyboard and are feeling bored with the default Android theme, why not try out theming the keyboard yourself?

XDA forum member gIMpSTa has created an online theming kitchen for creating custom skinned, signed, HTC_IME high and low res apk files.  This gives you freedom to easily customise or create your own skins!

How it works: gIMpSTa has set up a website (requires registration) that you can visit on your computer or directly from your Android device that will let you:

  1. Create a custom skinned keyboard based off any of the images currently in the library including specifying key colours, backgrounds and text colour, and
  2. Customise existing skins.

HTC_IME custom skin generator is currently in beta as gIMpSTa is actively working on the tool, but all features should be working.

If you use this tool to generate your own custom keyboard and include it in a theme or morph or re-post your custom keyboard, please give due credit to gIMpSTa.

For more information and screenshots of example themes, check out the forum thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
