    This thread is going to continue to grow with themes that have been either updated or designed to work with CM 5.0.7.X ROMs.

    All of these themes will be designed for application using the newest version of Metamorph (Root Access Required) All credit for the design of these themes goes to their original developers.

    NOTE: These MM Themes were not built or tested by their original developers. Please do not contact the Devs for support on these theme ports. If you have a question, or an issue with a theme posted here please post to this thread and either myself or another community member will gladly do our best to assist you. Not only will this help prevent confusion, it will also help you to receive the most timely and accurate answer...


    Thank you, and enjoy....


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Installation Instructions:

    1. Copy the ZIP to the AndroidThemes folder on your SD Card
    2. Open MM and choose Extract New
    3. Apply All and enjoy...


    Please Note: My converted themes will NOT update your Clock and Notification Colors. A great new feature to the Spare Parts App included with CM 5.0.7.x is the ability to change the colors on your own without manually updating the XML files for each theme. (just remember, you must reboot your phone in order to see these color changes)


    Here are the link to the downloads...

    I did this, and even with spare parts I can't get the clock, ERI, or date white. Otherwise works great.

    This is going to sound like a stupid question, but did you remember to reboot your phone after changing the colors in Spare Parts?



    Also, there are 2 places in Spare Parts to find the settings for the colors...

    Both are accessible from the first page under "User Interface Tweaks"...

    One section is "General", and the other is Notifications.

    In General, check the box labeled "Show Clock", then change the colors for your Clock Color, Date Color, and Carrier...

    In Notifications you can change all the other colors in your Notifications Dropdown...

    Note: If you hit the home button instead of the back button to get out of either of these menus the colors won't stick (at least in my tests). Do not hit the Home button until you are back to the main screen in Spare Parts.

    Last but not least... Reboot your phone...

    Please let me know how this works for you.

    Can somebody here explain what all the colors are for? The names are not obvious to me (ex. "no notification color" or "clear notifications color" "ticker" etc.). Also, please confirm that we are unable to change the color of the notification bar itself.

    Thanks,
    John

    Notifications ticker color is the color of the text that scrolls when u first get a notification...

    No notifications title color is the color of the text that states you have no notifications...

    Clear notifications lable color is the color of the text on the clear button...

    Ongoing notifications title color is the color of the titles of your ongoing notifications... such as task killer running in the background.

    Latest notifications title color is self explanitory, as are most of the others...

    Don't forget... your clock and date cand carrier colors are in General...

    Thanks for all the work you have done and posting this here droid_maine! The only thing I request is that you make sure no theme devs will get upset w/ their theme being posted here. Other than that keep it up man!

    Having trouble getting Smoked Glass theme to work on 5071. While Metamorphing the theme i get stuck on applying framework-res.apk, and it just sits there until i reboot or battery pull... Ideas?
    (I have already tried rebooting and MMing again)

    I have been on the road all day so I just now updated to 5.0.7.1... I was able to apply the Smoked Glass-Esque MM Theme without a hitch... So I am not sure what is happening on your device Samurai...

    The version of this that can only be update via update.zip includes the text colors... I have stripped this theme down to just the PNG picture files, so it will not interfere with the settings that needed to be implemented for Spare Parts to be able to update the Clock and Notification colors...

    Does anyone else have any ideas?

    Thanks much Maine. Is it possible to change the color of the status bar itself? Without that, being able to change the color of the text is sort of limited.

    The color of the status bar itself is controlled by the png picture files of the theme, so changing it by altering settings is not possible. Limiting as it may be, the default text color is black and is nearly impossible to read on many themes without changing it. Usually it is changed by the theme when applied... however since koush so nicely included a version I of spare parts that could allow the user to change it it makes sense to let the user have fun.

    Also, spare parts was updated once again in 5.0.7.1 to allow the choice of any color not just those in a list... way cool.:icon_ banana:

    I would have appreciated you at least telling me you were going to do this. I've seen people talking about SGE MM in other threads and thought they meant someone else's SG mini-port. Also, you stated that SGE includes text colors which it now does not with the current version for 5.0.7.1. You can keep hosting/updating it. Just next time let me know.

    For everyone else: Just remember that the MM and RomManager versions are not upkept by the same person, so when trying to find answers to problems make sure you state which you used. Also note that I usually try to update SGE in RomManager within a day of new CyanogenMod releases.
