    DroidForum/ IncredibleForum 4th of July Theme Contest WINNERS!!

    [​IMG]

    I want to thank our two contestants carlz28 and roberj13 for their submissions to our 4th of July contest. It is admirable that in such a short period of time, both contestants composed comprehensive, stylish, and unique themes commemorating the United States' Day of Independence. And since we were initially going to be handing out three prizes, I am pleased to announce that both contestants are winners! You will each be receiving $50 gift cards to Amazon.com.

    As for the availability of themes themselves, you can find the download links and instructions below. I know I'll be sporting one of these while i celebrate the 4th of July :)

    Here's Roberj13's submission (with more screenshots): http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...uly-theme-contest-submissions.html#post585465

    Just to weight in; both themes were excellent. Both did a good job in such a short time. I wonder what you guys could do for Christmas;)


    Any way good job contestants and you both deserve the recognition.

    Thanks guys!
    It definitely was a learning experience for me since I just started theming a few weeks ago.
    It was an honor and fun to do such a theme!
    Thanks to DroidForums.net and Pilotcharles747 for sponsoring the contest!
    The gift card will be put to good use!
    DROID Accessories!!!

    I like the idea of a Christmas theme mentioned above!
    That would be a sweet contest! haha
    Plenty of time to prepare for that one ;)

    Congrats to roberj13 too! He made one stellar theme!

    Thanks again to everyone who viewed, commented and is/will be using these themes!

    at the risk of sounding like the noob I am, what's the best way to get the PNG files from carlz28's theme on my phone?

    Which pngs are you referring to? How exactly do you want to use them?
    You can extract them from the zip files and go into the apks and get them in the folders res/drawable-hdpi/

    How are you trying to install them? ROM Manager?
    Usually flashing to SPRecovery, then back to CW Recovery will solve the bootlooping issues (has for me anyway)
    After flashing recoveries, try manually installing them from the recovery menu (power button + x) method. Then choose zip to install.
    I just reflashed my theme on top of BB.4 and it appears to be working without any hitches.
