    Ah it's on Rom Manager I shoulda thought about that but I needed to get some sleep earlier. *Off to download through RM*

    Edit: Maybe I'm still tired but I don't see this on Rom Manager either. It must be a sign that black glass and my droid were never meant to be. So sad ;'(

    I think we need to clarify things... 928Droid Black Glass is not ON Rom Manager via downloads......BUT it can be installed WITH Rom Manager...IF you have downloaded it from my links and copied it to your SDcard.

    Regardless, I finally got it going. I can't play with it s much as I wanted today as I need my phone for work, and I'd have to do some prodding in order to clear enough space in /data. This theme is eating up around 25-30mb more than xTheme and I was starting to miss texts.

    On the positive. It looks simply amazing bar the occassional black on black text. Once I have time to clean up /data I will be back to this for sure. Amazing work so far.

    That is an entirely false statement.

    File to file my Theme is actually smaller then stock BB v0.4, by about 2mb+ :)

    The increase in system/app size is related to the fact I add back in the Stock Froyo Google apps (Facebook, Goggles, Maps, Twitter) just liek the Official Froyo, plus 3 extra apps ADW Launcherl, MenuUnlock and the Droid X Video Player. BUT the total of all of those extra apps are only approx 9mb.

    I have found it is easy for users to go in an delete the extra Stock Google apps they don't want. than to ask me for the matching Black Glassed Themed versions of those seperately.

    One other tip is that it seems very few can decide which version of the stock Android Keyboard, stock GoogleQuickSearchbox, and a few others.

    They seem to mix up the names of those apps all the time and you end up with 2 or more copies of the same app, just named differently.

    In one particular ROM I found 3 versions of the exact same stock keyboard, named LatinIME, LatinIme, and LatinImeGoogle(the proper Froyo name). Android is case sensitve so if you don't match the case exactly you will have 2 apps in there, even if they are the same (using LatinIME and LatinIme as an example).

    Since the KB app is approx 3mb...having 3 of those can eat up a lot of space quickly.


    I see the same thing with GoogleQuckSearchBox.apk, check your app folder and see if you have GoogleQucikSearchBox.apk AND QuickSearchbox.apk...again same app, just named differently.

    Sorry for rmy rant, it is a pet peeve of mine because I see it and fight it all the time.. I have to have seperate copies of the same app just because Devs don't follow the current "Google" naming structure.

    I know this isn't the CM6 area, but that Rom has 2 GoogleQuickSearchBox apps (GoogleQuickSearchBox and QuickSearchBox)..PLUS 3-4 HTC APP FILES... that have no business being there.

    Also watch out for SholesQuickoffice and QuickOffice, again same app and just taking up space.

    OH, and don't get me started on the "DeskClockGoogle vs DeskClock" , same with EmailGoogle, CalendarGoogle, CameraGoogle, Gallery3dGoogle, etc, etc... the older versions are the same name without the "Google" on the end...so check your System/app folder for duplicates..especially after flashing different ROMS..without a FULL WIPE!!

    Just as an FYI, I spend more time matching up the individual names used by each ROM then i do actual Theming..so if you did a clean wipe when installing their ROM, and then just installed my Theme you should be OK...maybe :)...but it never hurts to check since we need all the space we can get.

    I'm rather OCD myself when it comes to duplicate files... hell my entire file system in general. It makes it much easier in the long run as it has here. Lemme take back what I said about the theme earing up extra space in /data.

    What happened was after I installed the theme I started getting rejected texts. Since I didn't change anhything else I wrote it off as extras in yoiur theme. After restoring my backup I realized my fiance had been sending me "funny" pics and movies she'd been downloading all night and I had turned my notifications off because it was annoying me lol. My bad. Those multimedia files were not funny. I wonder if she realizes how much space those files are taking up. Gotta have a word with her!

    Timepicker image in SMS???

    Hi! Thank you so much for such a wonderful skin! I am having 2 (minor) issues that I am hoping someone can help me with:
    1. Text messages received by and viewed using the native Android messaging app, are covered by an image. I believe it is the "timepicker_up_normal.9" (???) image. What am I doing wrong??? Please see screenshot.

    2. The "928Droid BG B-B v0.4" header at the top of the Notification screen takes up a good-sized piece of screen real-estate. Is there any way to make it smaller? (also included screenshot)

    I thank you in advance for any tips/advice!

    Wish I had a Dollar for everytime I answered the Mms question, not your fault though.

    pen the Mms app, then Menu>settings scroll down to "Black Background", uncheck it, then check it back again, exit app all the wa using the back arrow.. then restart app and enjoy.

    FYI, not my app, I just theme it and it is Themed for the black background option ONLY.

    Search Pulldown Editor for changing the "header" to what ever you like...or manually open frameowrk-res.apk and edit the eri.xml file

    Hey 928, I was curious if you have updated the theme for the transparent dialer and contacts? If not, will you post here when you do? Thank you.
