    Just figured Id start a thread to keep everyone updated on the progress.

    Exchange ideas...previews, etc. Ive been puttin in work in the lab on chump change. Couldnt think of what to call the theme, and was getting tired of the soft theme names....so I wanted to go ahead and put the theme name out there. (not like anyone is gonna steal it or)

    So...this is a WIP (work in progress). Built from the suggestions of SS forum members, and just so yall know...this will take me some time to complete, but when I finish...it will be worth the wait.

    So, save yourself a few diapers/depends or whatever...Chump Change is going to blow your lid.

    Do you have a list of icons you're going to Chrome?

    no sir. I pull each part of the framework apart...and have a thumbnail view of each one.

    1. Framework
    2. apps


    Thats basically all there is to do. Start with images, and if any xml's need editing afterward...I go from there.

    It is a lot of images. I wanted to get the items used most taken care of...and then I will build around it...whatever I feel like at the moment. lol.

    I do know that I dont want an icon SET. Reason is because I think it looks bad when all the system apps look the same icon wise...and anything extra you install to data is still stock android. It doesnt flow well. Thats my opinion anyway. I will render effects on icons though...but Im not planning on a set of chrome icons.

    Once I finish the base of the theme (framework, phone, contacts, statusbar, notifications, lock/unlock sliders, widgets, web, text) then I will start to focus on apps. Those are the main starters though.

    I HOPE it will be ready by monday.

    I chromed a large portion of the framework images that I wanted to last night. Once I finish framework, I will complete the phone and contacts. At that point...it will be flashable. Then the apps will trickle down.

    Hell...Im excited too. I dont even know what its going to look like on my phone yet. haha.

    Im also going to make an SBF boot logo to go with CC.

    Also, I have requested help with an awesome idea I have for a bootanimation. Hope I get some takers.

    Just giving yall a status update on chump change.

    I havent forgotten...dont worry...in fact..Ive spent many hours working on this theme.

    What I have finished so far and flashing on my phone for testing contains...


    Dialer (finished)
    contacts (finished)
    Framework (~1/2 finished)

    Testing those 2 right now...may need minor tweeking. I will post up screenshots of what I have.


    Stay tuned for more updates.

    I'm totally gonna rock this when you release it. Love the chrome look!!! Very nice work.

    Are you gonna do anything with the 3g, signal bars, and battery by any chance?

    ahhh everything is so shiny! youve sure got a tester if you need one.

    idk how far your going with this, but a chrome notification bar/pull down would be insane

    Hmm. Will see.

    Yes I am doing framework next. Statusbar..
    Notifications...etc. then apps

    edit: Also, I know that in the screenshots it looks like there is some discolored background around the in call buttons at the bottom...but...on your phone...it isnt visible. Its there because I added the shine....if I remove it...the button doesnt look like reflecting light.

    The only one that IS visible (and I will fix)...is the add call plus...I will fix the background on that image.

    And I just got up this morning to start...whiskey hangover and all. :p j/k...didnt drink that much last night, but its been friggen cold in texas since a week before the super bowl..and its still cold. Havent been able to reap havok in the streets on my bike, so I got my trusty laptop and phone. lol
