    First and Foremost,

    This is my first attempt at making a theme. Please be somewhat gentle with the criticism.. ie. constructive. I get enough of a beating all night at work..LOL :icon_ banana:

    This theme is oriented more towards law enforcement.. but of course anyone is welcome to download it and flash it. I am not posting the theme until it is complete. However, I wanted to put up a couple of screen shots and show what has been done and solicit suggestions.

    If there is anything you think I should add, or change, let me know.

    HUGE thanks go to B-Boy and Yankindasouth. Both have been more than helpful in helping me get it started. The theme is Heavily based off of BBoys murder theme as a base, like I said I am a beginner.

    Let me know what you think. Screenshots to follow in post 2 and 3.

    Screen Shots are in the attachments below.

    By all means, please suggest on more changes. This is actually kind of fun to do..(insert maniacal laughter). I am planning on changing the phone icons (with the numbers) to badges and the dial numbers will be the badge numbers. Also I am planning on chaning the lock icon on the lock screen to a pair of handcuffs...

    Any other ideas and I will be happy to do all I can. When I run into a wall, I am sure one of the great themers before me will be willing to help out with some guidance.

    Thanks guys.

    some more screen shots of the updated theme.. before you get worried, I blacked out the phone numbers in the photos to protect the innocent. :) They will appear on your phone.

    Is the wallpaper from CoD Modern Warfare 2?

    It's a good start, but I'd work on your icons. The camera icon is really bad and most of the ones you picked are really blurry.

    I have no idea where that picture is actually from .. I Google's searched for swat pictures.. then modified it some with paint.net. Also, it is in the notification drop down, not the wallpaper.

    I appreciate the feedback on the icons. I am going to redo the icons to find higher quality images for sure.

    Any suggestions for what you guys would like to see as launcher icons for those apps? Maybe a mugshot photo for Facebook icon and the such?

    Try using GIMP if you can.

    As for the icons I would try merging the symbol with something else. Some of the issues I have with themes is they go out and replace an icon with some wacko picture. Like someones face for email.

    This might be something cool to do with the dialer. Try to find an image of a cop talking into something and modify it for the dialer.

    Ok I used Gimp to change and improve a couple of icons. I changed the following:

    Browser contacts calculator camera

    I think next I will work on adding a picture to the lock screen. Then move on to other apps... like the facebook and pandora icons.

    Maybe then I'll take on the daunting task of editing the .xml files...

    Please make suggestions... i can modify the current icons, add other apps to the list... just let me know what you think.

    EDIT: Lock Screen "done".... going to change the lock slider to a pair of handcuffs... probably.

    Looks good man!... The main thing is to have fun as a themer..#1 rule. Just keep adding stuff... one idea though - on the stat_sys_upload and download.. make them alternating red/blue police lights.. the speed they rotate as an animation would look pretty cool.. in my Fuster Cluck theme I have the ball arrows all different colors and it has a similar effect.... Keep up the good work bro!...

    While I tend to leave my Droid stock themed I think you're off to a good start. Keep up the good work.

    closing in..

    ok... Lot's updated over night. The 3g icons (upload and download) should now flash red and blue.

    updated the camera icon to make it look better. Fixed the lock screen background to grey it out a bit. Not the bright blue.:icon_ banana:

    Phone keypad is updated to a blue looks pretty cool .. I can make them larger if anybody thinks I should. ( I am aware that I missed the 0+ key) that will be fixed very soon.

    Next: transparent lock sliders on the lock screen
