1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    This for those of you that only wants to change the Pulldown Backgrounds to a Transparent Custom Logo'd one... It works superbly via MetaMorph...
    I can do this with any images, sports or others.... requests could come with your own images if you want.


    I have started creating MetaMorph themes to change only the pulldown backgrounds to Transparent Custom Logo'd Pulldown Backgrounds...
    *** this 'does not' change your font style or color... or anything else on your theme/ROM****


    Like My Work?> [​IMG]


    :icon_exclaim:I wasn't able to test on all ROMs and themes... make a nandroid backup before applying.. I think most themes/ROMs should take without a problem...
    !Notice: BlacknBold and Kookahdoo Themes doesn't with these MetaMorph subthemes....!...
    They add a -v4 to their drawable-hdpi folder, thus MM cannot repack the framework-res.apk!
    For these themes I will need to create Update.Zips, and will get to them little by little.



    Instructions on how to install using MetaMorph...

    > Download MetaMorph themes and place into AndroidThemes folder on your SDCard... then..

    1. Launch MetaMorph
    2. Unzip/Extract new theme
    3. *select the MetaMorph .zip*
    4. *it will extract then inform you...select 'Close'*
    5. *you will then see SubTheme: framework-res.apk* ..press Apply all!
    6. *it wiull then prompt you if you want to 'Continue?' ...press continue*
    7. *it will then apply the sub theme and then auto reboot*

    You should then have only the the transparent Pulldown Backgrounds changed to the one with your custom logo/image, while leaving the rest of your current theme untouched...

    First one... Harley Davidson of course...:cool:

    No Hijack, just a quick question:

    If I pull out the desktop jpeg from the WVU zip file you did, will it work this way? Pulldown only?

    Also, If I replace that desktop jpeg with a different image will it work as long as I rename it the same?

    The reason I ask is so those of us that you have already done the full pulldowns for can maybe change them ourselves, so you don't get duplicate requests.

    Thanks.......donation sent!

    I truly appreciate the donation you sent :)

    I'm not quite understanding what exactly you are referring to? Do you mean you only want the pulldowns only and not the lockscreen parts? Or if you mean you want to change the images yourself?
    The pulldown has the image imbedded in, so to replace the image you'd have to make a blank status_bar_background.png and then imbed the image onto it as an additional layer and anchor them on. ... I think that's waht you mean??

    I placed a request in the NFL Pulldown thread, but this is a more appropriate area to ask. I know you're swamped, but if you're able to get around to it, could you make a University of Texas pulldown? I seldom lock my phone, so I don't really need the lockscreen, unless it's easier for you to do it all together rather than pull the lock screen stuff out. I really appreciate you're work. thanks!

    This one is something I was tinkering with... Playboy, transparent pulldown & lockscreen icons...


    Playboy_TransparentPulldown_MM.zip

    ** Note: the Playboy at the bottom of the pulldown is now removed... so only the Playboy embedded into the pulldown will show the name..;)

    The Harley one was only the pulldown and it's accompanying tab (tab is back to stock)... it will not affect the lockscreen portions of the Cowboys MM...

    Like the look of the Harley one, but I own a Honda....so can I request to have one, or possibly two made????

    A Honda One and a University of North Dakota Sioux one. I have included two images of each, one with a black background and one with a white. Didn't know which you preferred.

    And I can donate them to your paypal if that means you could make them for me! PLEASE!?!?

    So that Honda logo is all you wanted, no reference to Honda with the wing?... what is this Cycles name?


    These whould work on any ROM, but there are a couple themes that doesn't play nice with Metamorph... my suggestion if to make a Nandroid backup and then test out one of the other MMs I've posted to make sure it applys right...

    Hmmmm. I think I need to redo the ND pattern unlock image, I didn't notice the white haze around that image... it's harder to tell on the Droid screen but you definitely can see it on the PC...lol

    EDIT: ..redone, looks cleaner now...;)
