Gingerbread Themes for Android MDPI Devices

Gingerbread is on everybody’s mouth and if your device did not have yet a ROM with it, themes will help you cope with the wait. XDA member joenathane prepared a couple of themes with the new operating system style.
These themes are available separately for the Huawei Ascend and for any other MDPI devices and we can find also a version of metamorph theme that is still on beta but is usable.
The developer mentions that you should make sure your phone is rooted, you have busbox downloaded and installed, and that usb debugging is turned on.

Im working on a Gingerbread based theme for the Huawei Ascend, it’s almost complete but I’m running into some issues trying to change the text color in the notification bar and some other places where text is no longer visible because it’s black on black. If anyone here can help please let me know(everywhere I’ve searched has only come up with useless info, like there in nothing in the Ascend’s services.jar and i’ve changed what I could in the statusbar xml’s). I’ve attached some screenshots of the theme in action. There are many more changes not visible in the screenshots, the majority of the framework-res have been updated to match the new theme.

I’d appreciate any help anyone could offer, thanks!

Continue to the theme’s original thread.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
