    Themed Helix Launchers

    I have been working on putting together several themed versions of the Helix Launcher... I had been working on these for a bit, originally using Helix 1.1 as my base.

    I have since started to convert them to the new version 1.2a that is on the market. I change themes and ROMs often so I like to be able to quickly install whichever launcher best fits... After talking with Jrummy, I have decided to start a thread to share them with the community.

    I just finished the Cyanogen themed version... using the cyanogen logo...

    Other versions will include my own launcher button, designed to be very simple. Colors will be Blue, Cyan, Red, and Green to match the current theme colors provided by Jrummy... I will update this post as I finish each one.

    Credit and Thanks to Faruq Rasid for designing the launcher itself.


    To install:

    1. Download the desired .apk file)
    2. Copy the apk to your SD card
    3. Uninstall any previous installations of Helix Launcher 1
    4. Install this version using any file explorer app (Astro is FREE)
    5. Enjoy!

    As of 05/21 all Themed Helix 1.2a files have been moved here...

    Themed Helix 1.2a Launchers

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Helix Launcher 1.2a Cyanogen Themed
    (Includes Darkened Cyan transparent app drawer, themed trashcan, and themed search widget)



    Helix Launcher 1.2a Blue Themed
    (Uploaded 05/19)
    (Includes Darkened Blue transparent app drawer, themed trashcan, and themed search widget)



    Helix Launcher 1.2a Red Themed (Uploaded 05/19)
    (Includes Darkened Red transparent app drawer, themed trashcan, and themed search widget)


    Helix Launcher 1.2a Green Themed (Uploaded 05/19)
    (Includes Darkened Green transparent app drawer, themed trashcan, and themed search widget)


    Helix Launcher 1.2a Cyan Themed (Uploaded 05/19)
    (Identical to the Cyanogen theme, only with my style launcher instead of the Cyanogen Logo)



    Helix Launcher 1.2a Pink Themed
    (Uploaded 05/19)
    (This theme is fully credited to jrummy and of course the App Dev, as I pulled it directly from Jrummy's PINK LIFE Theme)

    All I did was pack it into an installable APK so that you can easily switch between it and other launchers without using update.zip and SPRecovery...

    Here are Jrummy's screen shots... That include this launcher... If you like this theme, it can be found here....

    PINK LIFE






    Oh and I just uploaded a CyanBlue Helix 1... Nothing big, just my blue themed helix 1 with the launcher button swapped for the Cyanogen Icon.

    Note: Due to the way the Dev chose to build Helix 2 the transparent/themed App Drawer and Blue Icon Selection within the drawer is not possible at this time. Sorry. I will e-mail the Dev to see if there is any way to work around this later.

    Cyanogen Themed Helix Launcher 2 is up... Install same way as suggested in OP
    Blue ........Themed Helix Launcher 2 is up... Install same way as suggested in OP (Uploaded 05/19)

    I assume you mean to have it cover the clock and such when the drawer is opened? If so, there is no way that I know that this can be done by changing the themes...

    However, I read in another thread that version 1.3BETA2 is available for for those who make a donation the on the Dev's page, and that it is supposed to include this feature.

    [APP] HelixLauncher: ON MARKET! UPDATED [130510] - xda-developers

    Also, the current version of Helix Launcher 2 includes this feature, and I will be including themed versions of this soon too....

    Edit: I just uploaded the Cyanogen version of Helix 2 in the second post of this thread.

    Yea, I meant the feature that Helix2 has, removing the bar when it is on the home screen. Helix2 has always been really buggy for me no matter what rom I've ran. I'll give your upload a shot....

    Looking forward to the blue versions...

    Do you mean, how is it that I can change the icon, or how is it that it changed when pressed or when it is time to delete something?


    Changing the icon is fairly easy... Just create your own picture file of the correct dimensions and replace the original like all other themes...

    Making it change based on pressing it is just a matter of making sure the icon that represents whatever action being done is changed to how u want it to look...

    Yea I'm trying to change the "all_apps_button..." files. For some reason once I change them I cant get Astro to load them onto my phone. I know I'm using compatible pictures because I pulled them from the other launchers you've uploaded... I used winRAR to try and change the files...
