    For all of you themer's out there, this is your chance to get your theme officially supported with each release!!

    Here is the way this will work.

    Theme Sapphire.

    Post a download link and Screenshots in this thread.

    When we are nearing our next release, we will post a poll for the general public to vote on. The theme with the highest votes will be officially supported by us.

    Simple Easy Fun

    Rules:
    Come voting time don't make posts asking for people to vote for you.

    No Framework changes beyond .png's and .9.png's, All lettering is changed using the provided color changer.

    If you are porting another theme to sapphire rom be sure to get the ORIGINAL themer's permission first.

    NO nandroids, it must be in an update.zip format.

    I have created a simple Black Bar Modification used by many people on Cyanogen Mod. I have ported it over to Sapphire. Included with the theme are new (white)notification icons and a black bar. I have made the SMS/Gmail logo's colored. Also gtalk logo is colored. Very simplistic theme to give Android a sleeker look.

    The file will not install. I went back to the default theme, and when trying to apply the above theme, it always comes back

    installing update...
    installation aborted.

    It's probably not in the update.zip format, so it can only be installed through clockwork.

    It is an update.zip - should install just fine if renamed properly and if one selects "allow update.zip install" or whatever that thing is called

    So basically I should apply this the same way I move between UD, Sapphire, and BB, as well as the same way I try all the other themes?

    Nope. Didn't work. Installation aborted.

    I have also downloaded the file twice checking to see if the first one may be corrupt. Both zips open fine.

    I'll try downloading from a different computer I guess, or peraps straight off the Droid.

    OK, so I download the file straight from the Droid's browser. I copy the file to the root of the sdccard, I rename it update.zip, I boot into recovery, I choose install, I click allow update.zip Installation, I click Install /sdcard/update.zip (depreciated), I get the following:

    Install from sdcard
    finding update package...
    opening update package...
    verifying update package...
    installing update...
    update aborted.

    Did you do your install with SPRecovery?

    How hard is it to install clockwork and have it running with SPRecovery? Seems like a lot of to do just for a 3MB theme. ;)

    Well you did everything right.

    If you install ROM Manager it's easy to switch between the two. I think Joel might have to look into why this install is having trouble on the other recovery, but we both come from the CyanogenMod world where most everyone runs clockwork.

    I get the exact same. Clock work is easy enough. Just get ROM Manager from the Market. I'll wait though. SPR is easy and fool proof and RM had just enough various random issues that I have become disinterested in bothering with it. It's actually very easy and slick, just not my preference.

    It looks like what I have been wanting for ages, but I just need to figure out a way to make this install or wait for a fixed .zip.

    I would appreciate a SPRecovery as well. If it's doable of course : )

    I don't want to install ROM Manger on my device.

    It is definitely doable... Give me a bit, I'll look into it, unless he is going to do it. :)
