This MetaMorph XML Theme works on 2.1 ESE81 "Pure Stock Rooted" ROMs or any ESE81 Based ROMs. See the apps/apks that are Themed in the list below. My Themes only update image files so they will not effect custom coded versions of apps.
Perfect Stock Smoothness, Speed and Stability, especially if no other themes have been applied.
This is an XML MM Theme that will change basically all App headers, footers, Menus and more to "Eclair Black". Also all Menu Icons are darkened to match. Notifications, Browser and Search Bars are also black.
In other words if you like the 2.1 "Eclair" Black like the stock widgets, you will love this. All stock Colored Icons etc. are retained with the exception of red borders on active text fields and the "Power Off Icons".
My theme has a unique method for working around the Notification Bar Clock color issue since Pure Stock Roms are not currently able to change the clock color. It is not perfect in Landscape mode, but am working on a fix.
UPDATE: Fix for Clock Background is to use my new Droid Pulsar Battery Status MM theme with "Black" backgrounds. Download Link: MM Theme- Droid Pulsar Battery Status with "Black"
Direct themes of the following Native apps are included, it is recommended to apply all of them for a uniform look. Framework-Res theming shows up in all Market and 3rd Party apps.
com.android.deskclock.apk "2.1 Desk Clock" (apk must be installed in System/app)
com.helixproject.launcher.apk - (apk must be installed in System/app)
com.helixproject.launcher2.apk - (apk must be installed in System/app)
Contacts.apk - added in Version 1.5
DownlaodProvider.apk - added in Version 1.4
GenieWidget.apk (News and Weather) - added in Version 1.6
GoogleApps.apk - added in v1.7
Launcher.apk - New 2.1 "Style" Launcher Theme (added Version 1.1)
YouTube.apk - added in Version 1.6
As specified in the Theme File details, do the Framework-Res.apk last, it will either auto-reboot or you will get a screen to manually reboot. This only does a "partial reboot" and I recommend a full reboot after that to make everything smoother. Since so many apps are themed, the system will get faster as you use each of the newly themed apps after the first time. Also you will loose Home screen Shortcuts for some of the Native apps/Widgets after theming, just add them back again.
IF you have previously installed some other themes I would HIGHLY recommend at least pushing a stock 2.1 Framework-res.apk FIRST before installing my theme. A lot of themes I have seen have large thumbnail files in them which can effect overall performance.
Let me know your thoughts....keep in mind this is my first Theme...so go easy :-)
Please do a search in this Forum if you are unfamiliar with MetaMorph theming.
