    NOTE: This is for ICS GNex only.. not Bionic stuff (If I start posting that here I would just end up confusing myself later)


    Inverted MMS: Done
    Inverted GTalk: Done for 4.0.2 and 4.0.3 (4.0.4 is completely done as well, just not posted yet)
    Inverted Contacts: Done
    Transparent Contacts: Done



    Themes:
    A Guiding Light: Theme is done and released!! I will make a new thread here later tonight with screens. In the Meantime, check out Sourcery ROM.. you can download the theme from the theme manager inside it. Please let me know if you d/l Sourcery and check out my theme..

    Not only is it themed but, the inverted apps you expect are all there.... and then some. All 4.0.4 based.. Inverted Gmail, Gtalk, Email, Voice, MMS... Transparent (yet still readable) phone and contacts (the 1st and only one for the Gnex)...


    Gold Dust: Not even started. I do have it completely done for the Bionic though so Im not starting from scratch... Its Next.

    Orange Crush: That's right, Orange, a new addition... way out but coming.






    So thats the game plan as of now. If you have never seen A Guiding Light, check the Bionic theme section. Versatile1 and I teamed up and made that theme and as of right now I'm still trying to convince him to get a GNex :)

    And Versatile got a Gnex!

    This post will be about random things I find that people might like but may not know it existed.


    1) (All I got so far)... In the stock browser if you go into settings and look around in there, you will find an option for inverted rendering. Check the box and all the white goes away. Inverted with a click!

    Been using your blacked out stuff since I rooted. I appreciate the work. I see Sourcery is about to drop, and actually came here to ask if you'd be supporting it. Then I re read the op. Great stuff. Looking forward to it.

    Running Sourcery with your guiding light theme. There is alot to like in here. Glad to see everything sufficiently blacked out. Thats a necessary change in my book.

    I've got a couple of observations/ suggestions, but please dont take it as criticism. I know how much work you put into this, and I'll be rocking your theme whether you make any of these changes or not.

    In order of importance (to me):

    The numbers on the themed keyboard are hard to see. The ones positioned at the top right corner of the letter keys... with the glow effect youve got going on, I can see how doing the same blue glow might lose it in the border... something to think about.

    The wifi/ 4g/ 3g icons in the status bar are also kinda hard for me to see... some combination of being small, and that glow effect I think.

    In the sourcery thread you asked for ideas for the pulldown backgrounds. I'd love to see something with just like a floating particle effect on a semi-transparent dark background.

    Finally (last one I swear), while I like the blur effect, I'd eventually like to see something dark with clean, thin lines. Maybe you've got some images like that just laying around?


    Again, awesome work man. Your work has been on my gnex since the day I rooted, and I'll continue to support whether you implement my suggestions or not. Cheers. :biggrin:
