Nexus One Theme With A Touch Of Pure Blackbar
The Nexus One is a great device, and this theme is a very nice addition to it. The theme was made by XDA member willverduzco, who managed to create a decent looking theme with widgets, wallpaper, and a color scheme that will make your device seem like the best thing in the world.
The theme comes with a little information:
- This MORPH is for CyanogenMod 6, and possibly earlier versions of CyanogenMod.
Upon release of CM6 final, I will update this bar, if needed, and post the new version here.
This MORPH is heavily based on the HTC Desire Notification Bar. My goal was to create a bar that was PURE BLACK, instead of the gradient bar that the HTC Sense devices have. Additionally, I created a new, more streamlined notification drawer pull-down image.
To my eyes, the pseudo-black is simply too close to black to look intentional, but not close enough to look quite right. (It sort of reminds me of an LCD with a back-light leakage problem.)
The theme is available here.
