Seriously, Bootanimations are a dime a dozen and are easy to swap out to what ever makes you happy. For my Theme I chose a Droid animation instead of a modified Nexus version.
The point is, if the bootanimation is keeping someone from trying a ROM or Theme I find that silly. If that was the case no one would use the Sapphire ROMs (which BTW kick butt)... HA HA, sorry guys, but it does need to be "modernized" a bit :-)
Is there any way to apply this only to the widgets (or maybe just the widgets that don't have their main app affected (ie not Music)) and the notification bar? No offense, but I don't really like the settings screens and such as much as the stock look, but I'd really like to get the widgets and maybe the keyboard.
I guess I'd just love to be able to pick and choose the .apk's I update. Would it make sense to backup system/app and then restore all the originals that I don't want?
Unfortunately is is impossible to make any Theme that EVERYONE likes EVERYTHING about it. My solution is simple, I make it the way I like it, share it with others and don't hold a gun to anyone's head to make them use it .. BUT, I also happily give simple tips on how to change it to be closer to what you like.
Love the theme, great work!
Flashed the update.zip on Sapphire 0.8.4
Now the settings in "GEM settings" for battery % overlay and status bar clock toggles
don't work. Can't turn on battery % overlay and can't turn off clock.
BTW, it will help me keep things better organized if you post issues with each ROM in their respective Threads, i.e Sapphire issues in the Back Glass Sapphire thread. Makes my life easier and I only have to answer the same question in one place :-)
Thread links for each Custom ROM:
I got a boot loop after install off a fresh clean install of Simply Stunning 4.4 + MedV 1.1 kernel. I'm going to start over and this time fully set up SS4.4 before flashing the theme to see if it requires something to occur first in the ROM before the theme can apply.
One thing I noticed which was strange is that SPRecovery reported that the installation was complete before the progress bar had filled 100%.
I'm offering mirroring services for Droid developers. Please contact me via PM if you'd like your content mirrored. I should be implementing a decent download rotator script and some more servers soon as well. Currently hosting from 100Mbit Dedicated in France for Europe and from a shared Gigabit for North America. Please remember you can mirror anything using the Coral Cache CDN by adding .nyud.net in the domain portion of any direct download URL for fast mirroring worldwide.
I'm not guaranteeing, but it worked for me this way
