Tablet Optimised HoneyBread V4 Theme for CM7

If you’re one of those clever chappies’ who uses Cyanogen Mod 7 after the several fantastic RC and stable releases, you’ll most likely be familiar with its great theme engine. It’s a great idea, we know. But if you’re a Honeycomb person, like me, and you like the icons used and the way it works and, most importantly of all, you own a tablet, you’re in luck!

Instead of using the original HoneyBread theme for CM7, XDA member mad-murdock has taken that dandy theme and optimised it for tablets. Everything in the theme is appropriately sized for use on a tablet, it’s installable via apk, and mad-murcock has been great enough to provide the source code for his tweaks, so that any of you lovely developer-chaps, if you like it, can go at it and help move it out of ‘alpha’ stage.

[CM7][Theme]HoneyBread Alpha 4 [TABLET TWEAKED]

After i developed the tablet tweaks, a lot of people started modifying framework and systemui to exchange the buttons instead of doing it with a theme. the way they were going just was bad by design. no fixes are included except those people repeat their work with every new nightly build. thats the reason we use theme engine by now. it works for all devices and all versions.

my initial complaints about modifying those files and my suggestion to use a theme were ignored – so i came to the point to do it myself.

all i did was adding honeycomb icons for the soft buttons to the already existing honeybread v4 theme

It being in alpha means a lot of options might not work, but that’s okay, we’re all understanding here! If you do run CM7 and would like to check out the theme, head on over to the original thread.
