Let's start this with a disclaimer: I do not believe there is significant meaning behind synthetic benchmarks in correlation with real-world use. We've seen, time and again, some high-scoring phones output questionable performance. In this regard, Samsung is one of the usual culprits, and despite having opted for some of the highest spec configurations on each and every one of their flagships, many of them still managed to lag. Other top-tier devices, including the latest Nexus phone and tablet, managed to output...

[THEME] “D Theme” for Pinky Desire and Pinky Desire Classic
UPDATED: 08 Sep 2010
My girlfriend and I both use Pinky Desire Classic rom and think it’s great. Pinkolin seems to definately know what he’s doing and appears to be on top of things with regular releases (hat goes off to you mate).
I decided that everything in this rom is fantastic …EXCEPT the plain white (eww) notification pulldown. So I decided to go about figuring out how to start theming roms. This is my first attempt at theming. I created a green theme for myself and a pink theme for my gf… then I decided to make a whole bunch of colors just for the hell of it.
The themes include a semi transparent notification drawer however pinky rom currently doesn’t support transparencies in the notification drawer… I’m hoping that support for this will be included in future versions of pinky rom. I’m also hoping that I can get the themes included in the rom manager app in the future for easier installation.
You can find more information in the theme thread.
