GTX seems to be one of many hit mods that have been developed in our forums this year. In a very recent post by XDA member fjompa , the dev asks to begin development on GTX Icons. Now, while some people not familiar with the whole concept of GTX this might seem weird, but this famous theme has extensions in just about everything from lock screens to sms packages. The original poster only has one icon, but I am sure with our big community we can get many more icons by the end of the week.

Isn’t it just easier to have the battery percentage in the top bar instead of having to estimate how full your battery is? Even if you have a battery indicator with bars, it will not be as accurate as a percentage indicator. That’s why XDA member kubino99 made a How-To guide to install the above mentioned indicator, which includes a direct download from the XDA server for both Eclair (2.1) and Froyo (2.2). There are some additional notes which are revelant to know whether your device and ROM are supported:

You need to have rooted device and MCR r1 and R3 ROM.
Froyo version tested on DEFROST 2.0 Rom (for froyo I’ve updated just the code (services.jar) not the framework, but I’m sure some of the devs will take care of that )
If you have odexed /system/app this mod won’t work for you. Look for *.odex files in the /system/app folder.
For advanced users only. Check out the application thread for installation instructions and download.

If you like the color blue and have an Android Cyanogenmod powered device, this new themed ROM might be something for you. XDA member jeagoss created an ‘Extremely Blue’ themed ROM for the Nexus One, the Motorola Droid, and the HTC Dream (G1).

Well, after some work and learning, I give to you a theme that is loaded with blue. Blue is EVERYWHERE!!
I really didn’t change icons or too many images. I mainly just made all orange / yellow hints blue, and added blue hints to everything. My aim is to make a completely unified blue theme on the base cyanogenmod rom. The theme also has glossy blue bars on the launcher.
TheDude came up with an overlay to theme components of cyanogenmod at build time. After working with him on the overlay, this theme has been built with it. That means this theme is a complete rom, with my theme all happily integrated.
The ROM is basically a stock (Cyanogenmod) ROM, so no extra applications or tweaks are added to it.
Even the typical Nexus One live wallpaper has been turned blue, which I think is a nice addition.
Make sure you read the instructions very carefully before proceeding, also note that your phone needs to be rooted!
You can find more information in the theme thread.
XDA forum member gIMpSTa has created an online theming kitchen for creating custom skinned, signed, HTC_IME high and low res apk files. This gives you freedom to easily customise or create your own skins!
How it works: gIMpSTa has set up a website (requires registration) that you can visit on your computer or directly from your Android device that will let you:
HTC_IME custom skin generator is currently in beta as gIMpSTa is actively working on the tool, but all features should be working.
If you use this tool to generate your own custom keyboard and include it in a theme or morph or re-post your custom keyboard, please give due credit to gIMpSTa.

In a recent article that we published, we highlighted the MetroLock lock screen. A recently produced theme by zitoun, who has been working with Cendaryn, has come to light and does a great job matching the design of MetroLock and combining it into one simple and great looking theme. For those of you who found yourself loving the lock screen look, you’ll have to check out this new theme!

I’m working with Cendaryn to create a theme which will be nice with the icons “WMP7 Metro” from Cendaryn, Pray2Live & Got. The following theme is not the final release but a first try. Still working with Cendaryn to have news ideas.
Even in its non final release it still looks pretty sharp!

Give your Windows Mobile a fresh new look using the Windows Phone 7 Metro theme offered by mskip. This theme is designed for SPB Mobile Shell 3.5.3 and even works in landscape mode. A nice feature of this theme is that you can uninstall it and go back to your previous one.
Unfortunately this theme is only available for WVGA and VGA devices. However, there’s work undergoing for QVGA and WQVGA devices so hang tight.

+ All new layout with invisible buttons at top of Home Hubs for Carousel (top left) and menu (top right).
+ Links on right side of Home Hub 1 to main functions (top button to sound profile, middle invisible button to connections profile and bottom invisible button to task manager) which can easily be changed if desired.
+ 2 Home Hubs (slide up and down to scroll between them) which you can populate with a selection of panels or make up your own.
+ Panels are mostly made up of shortcuts and custom shortcut skins so easy to change images or look (if desired).
+ New menu bars in mobile shell screens.
+ All Screens fully set up for LandScape mode.
+ Lots more that I cant think of right now. Find out for yourself
Update: mskip has been working very hard and has QVGA and WQVGA versions ready for download.
