Disseminate Your Themes with a Icon Pack Shell App

u2f4

In addition to rooting, modifying, and otherwise hacking our mobile devices, many take to modifying the visuals as well. This can range from installing various themes to playing around with various launchers and more.

There is an almost endless supply of available themes in our Android Themes forum, and then there’s the whole awesomeness of Themer. But not every theme that you could possibly want has been neatly packaged for ease of installation. And if you’ve ever manually installed an icon pack, you know how much of a pain this can be.

XDA Senior Member Blaze wanted to do something about this. To that end, he created a template icon pack to help themers easily package up their icon packs for . . . READ ON »

Battery Wallpaper Brings Your Battery Level to Your Home Screen

xda3

We’ve all added superfluous swag items to our home screens from time to time just because they look cool. Be it a clock widget when you have a perfectly functional clock indicator in your status bar or a battery widget, these bits of flair are the digital equivalents of large and unnecessary car spoilers. Looking at the large clock widget on my main home screen, I can admit that I’m certainly guilty of this, as I’m sure you have been at some point as well. So why not embrace it?

XDA Senior Member OlliG recently released a beta version of his upcoming Battery Wallpaper live wallpaper app. As its title states, Battery Wallpaper displays your current battery level front and center as your live wall. . . READ ON »

Tool to Help HTC Rezound Themers

htc rezound

Theming can involve a number of long and tedious activities. Applying the same theme to dozens, even hundreds of icons. even more tedious is taking those icons and putting them back into the apk files they came from.

For users of the HTC Rezound, there’s one less step from concept to completion. XDA Senior Member MrSmith317 has created a .bat script that automatically switches out the icons in the com.htc.resources.apk, framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk for your themed ones. As with any new software, there are a few peculiarities that people who want to try it and some potential improvements that could be added in future releases. As MrSmith317 explains:

Only gotcha is that it is case sensitive provi

SC20110628-182730

It goes without saying that Samsung’s Galaxy S II is a very handsome device. However, sometimes the aesthetics of available custom ROMs aren’t to everyone’s taste.

Android Black Market Theme

CAP201107202043

I don´t know about you, but I don´t quite like the new market even if the change was necessary. As soon as the new Android market arrived to our devices, an inverted black theme appeared on our forums. This was the work done by XDA member ecsnead69, which is beautiful and offers full UI views, just as the white original one. The member mentions that his inverted theme is NOT the pirate app and be sure you don´t have a vending app in \data\app. If you do, the theme will not work.

Let the member know about your experience with the theme by leaving your feedback.

Rev-Up Your Battery Gauge With A Speedometer Battery Gauge

speedo_battery

Ever yearned for the day that you could install a battery meter with the same feeling of speed as a Formula 1 race car? OK; maybe that’s just me. How about a more precise meter that displayed the remaining battery in 1% increments? Whichever the case, XDA-Developers community member and XDA member CondemnedSoul has you covered. He has created a new battery gauge mod that can be installed through the T-Mobile / CyanogenMod Theme Chooser theming engine.

So, if your battery gauge is feeling the need for speed or just wants to be a little more precise, feel free to continue on to the original thread.. . . READ ON »

Prefer Black Above White? Get a Black Keyboard for your Droid X

DroidX Keyboard Skin

One special feature of the Droid X’s software keyboard is the multi touch function. This really helps a lot when it comes to fast typing. However, you might be bored with the standard white ”old-fashioned”  keyboard. Personally, I like white very much – as most of you probably know –  but you might just prefer a black keyboard. XDA member yourfriendwayned created a skin for the keyboard of your Droid X to fit other dark themes. One nice addition is the red Droid eye functioning as the voice level meter.

Simplistic Theme for Android Updated

aaa

Android themes are starting to come almost as frequent as we see them on WM platform. This time XDA member chancellorr presents this nice theme for your Android device with Metamorph, and as it´s name says is a very simple and clean theme. New icons can be found on the version 1.1 update that also fixes some bugs present on version one.
For those of you who don´t know about MetaMorph, it allows you to apply themes, patches, and mods to your phone by adding or changing files in an apk/jar file and by replacing files in any Directory.
MetaMorph doesn’t work with market apps, working only if you have a rooted phone, and BusyBox needs to be installed as well.
