    These are the preliminary release of these themes! Updates to come in the future with more themed items, these are just the preliminary. Updated will follow when I figure the pop-ups/text boxes out a bit more!

    This is a MetaMorph Theme, MetaMorph 1.9.8.6 is suggested and delay set to 5000 is also suggested.

    Red and black themed handcent

    Download here:http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7092472/BlackWidow.zip

    Installation instructions:
    1. use root explorer to move *com.handcent.nextsms-1.apk from /data/app to /system/app (*com.handcent.nextsms.apk on 2.1 systems) and Rename it Handcent.apk
    2.download and move the theme .zip to /sdcard/androidthemes
    3. use Metamorph to unzip the theme's .zip.(a theme control error will be thrown, just restart Metamorph and the xml is within the BlackWidow folder)
    4. Install theme with metamorph using the XML.
    5. Reboot phone (will be needed for android to find handcent again)
    6. re-install desktop icon and enjoy!

    tried to install the black/green theme. MM would say its installing for at least 3-4 minutes. then it would force close. about to try the black widow theme to see if it does the same.
    running MM 1.9.8.6

    It looks like you need to make the popup images into .9 PNG's. I had the same issue trying to make my own popup until I figured that out. :)

    to adjust the speed, on the main screen where you can choose to extract new theme or pick existing, hit menu then select preferences... the speed adjuster is at the bottom

    1.) Have you moved com.handcent.nextsms.apk from /data/app to /system/app?
    2.) Have you renamed com.handcent.nextsms.apk to just Handcent.apk?

    Reason I ask is that those are the only 2 things that I know of that would cause MM to hang like your explaining. If you have, I will take a look at it tonight when I get home from work.

    Yea I renamed everything correctly, I got the red one to work but I really wanted the green. Someone else posted the same problem with the green.

    Just RE-uploaded Black Widow (the red/black one).. I tested the file on my 2.2 and upon unzip, an error is thrown with a missing control file. It is there, just go into pick existing theme, then the blackwidow folder, the XML will make itself known... now onto the Black ops (green/Black) one.

    I also know the .9.pngs are off, but this is only 1.0 and need to work on them a bit more!

    Black Ops (green/black) is also uploaded and updated. Both still need work, and unzipping throws errors, but they both do work when you re-enter MM and pick existing theme!

    I will get working on these more as the week goes on to get more skinned to match

    FYI, tried out the green last night and after I rebooted, the theme showed up, but I was then unable to go into any settings? Had to uninstall and reinstall and startover, didn't reload the theme again to see if I could duplicate it, but thought you should know.

    Honestly, those look terrible. I really think they could use some more polish.

    This theme worked great for me! everything looks good too! one word of advice, MM themes ARE case sensitive, the MM theme is called swype.apk therefore when u place it into system/app it should be spelled exactly like that.

    one thing i did notice is that the picture icon and send button are still the same, when i applied the theme it didnt change them like it appears on your screenshots?
