3 New Themes for the T-Mo / Cyanogen Theme Engine
Heres a nice graphic work for your Android device, presented by XDA member rori~. These themes, which can be applied with the T-Mo / Cyanogen Theme Engine, completely modify the look of your UI. Rori~ has provided users with many options, such as GreybreadX, Honeycream, and CyanbreadX. If you prefer to remain close to stock and just want to add a little bit of usability, the developer has even created a Battery Percentage theme, which simply adds the numerical value to your battery icon. Just install the APK, open the Theme Chooser application, apply, and reboot to start enjoying your new interface.
You can use the original thread to share your personal designs as well.
