    Final build has been released!

    This version will be ICS themed, most of it manually, and will have all the usual fixes and speed improvements. This is just for previewing reasons. I am not quite done tinkering with the graphics yet. But this gives you an idea of what the final will probably look like. A lot of the icons and other graphics are from Sonny Sekhon's ICS theme for CM7, posted in the Market.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    OK, this is turning into an interesting night. Ive been digging through a lot of the images and java to find a lot of hidden color codes that control some aspects of the systems colors. Its not playing nice, but Im working on it.

    Thanks to Sonny Sekhon, maker of the Ice Cream Sandwich CM7 Theme in the Market, he has given me permission to use his theme in my ROM. I am NOT using the whole thing, but rather, just cherrypicking things from it, and personally changing most of the system images to my liking manually. Please check out his theme HERE.

    I'm using the theme on your sd8 right now...love it!
    I found using zip themer seems to provide the best install, but then does not upgrade from the market.

    Screenshots have been posted at the top of this thread. I there are some changes being made right now that wont show in THOSE screenshots, but rest assured, I'm ironing out as many things as I can. Also, yes, the Roboto font is now the default (included), and replaces the stock font completely.

    Its getting the final touches after dinner. Been trying out a few new tricks to optimize, going to see how it goes. So far, everything is good.

    Is this going to be able for Droid X? I have SD 8 on my Droid and love it, but I'd like to have it working on my DX as well.

    I noticed a couple issues. First, the battery icon seems to be replaced with the "disk full" icon for some stupid reason. Also, some of the images didnt show up properly. (I needed to test a lot to see them though). Its making me irritated, but thats how ROM work goes. lol I WANTED to release tonight, and had it all ready, but noticed the bugs during the upload......go figure!

    Once I am sure the D1 build is successful, I will build it for my other supported phones. The Droid X IS one of them, so be ready for it! :icon_ lala:
