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

    I made this for my own personal use but I figured there were probably a lot of people that would like to have this

    I personally have a darker theme on my Droid and the Launcher stood out horribly so I decided to make it darker

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    so that all of you out there can enjoy the slightly darker launcher, here it is

    Launcher.apk

    and this is how you would apply it through adb if the apk is located on the root of the sdcard

    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    mv /system/app/Launcher.apk /system/app/Launcher.apk.bak
    cat /sdcard/Launcher.apk > /system/app/Launcher.apk
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    exit

    *** you will most likely have to re-add all of your widgets ***

    Hope you all enjoy :)

    thanks for the responses, it is actually a lot darker than it looks, it has a 40% opacity black overlay from the original, i'll post a comparison image in a few mins

    Hell yeah not bad bro, I think it would top it off if you had the smoked glass launcher. But ehh, thats just my style. Looks awesome nontheless.

    yeah, im running sholesmod 2.0.5 and i've tried the smoked glass, i just cant get on board, it looks nice its just not for me

    edit: i put up the comparison shot, its not the biggest change in the world but its noticeable and its even more noticeable on the actual droid
