    This is the result of wanting a dark theme, but wanting one that looks like it could be stock on the phone. This theme is much more extensive than the Blue Energy theme so it took me forever to finish. I hope you like the finished product!! This theme will only be released for Sapphire and CyanogenMod. Icons are coming soon and will be part of my ADW Theme on the market now.

    Screenshots.

    Looks amazing. Might have to leave UD 4.0 for Sapphire. How's the battery life with the latest version and how smooth is it?

    It's so smooth, I think it's smoother than CM which I built the theme on, so I have been on RC1 since it came out and I installed Sapphire to port it over and it felt smoother. Don't know about battery life though really as this one stays plugged in.

    Battery life is excellent. I've been running Sapphire since the first release and have used many UD roms. Its right on par with UD which in my opinion has EXCELLENT battery life.

    As far as smoothness goes Sapphire is stellar.

    Check it out you wont be disappointed.

    that is really nice man! and im pretty picky when it comes to themes...
    two questions...would a version without the font be possible? and the lock screen icons seem a little chrome-y (not bad, but seem to stand out from the rest of the theme) would a more flat version be difficult?

    Looks sweet! Will be using this for awhile.

    I just dont understand why more people dont use LauncherPro? cant live without the shortcuts in the dock to keep my screen uncluttered.
