Steel Blue Theme for CM7 – For All ‘Blue’ Lovers
It’s very unlikely, but incase you hadn’t heard that a non-beta stable ROM of Cyanogen Mod 7 was released recently, well… now you know. Now you know that, I’m imagining you running to your nearest computer, downloading the ROM and flashing it as fast as you can. But a stable rom isn’t the only good thing to come from CM7. There are some very good themes for it, too and Steel Blue is certainly one of them.
Not only does the theme itself (for the built-in theme engine) looks fantastic from the large collection of screenshots XDA member edint3000 has included, but it’s also still in Alpha and, from a general concensus, works “almost flawlessly”. It also has a beautiful collection of icons, which are to die for.
Just like every other theme for the CM7 theme engine, it’s available as an apk. Which, as I’m sure you’ll know, is a file you can download and just… run. It’s that simple. (This is why we love the theme engine).
The thread also has links to other themes by Team Carbon, called Poison Green and Blood Red, including some gorgeous boot animations and icons as well.
If you do run CM7 and like the colours Red, Green and/or Blue, I highly recommend that you shoot over to the original thread and go wild.

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...
