    I've spent the past couple weeks away from my themes and focusing on Blacking Out apps and making them Transparent so I started a new theme style that I really dig... :biggrin:.. It's very full so just like on my regular themes, make sure you have some system space free'd up... Most apks just replace the old one but they weigh more than stock so that's why ya gotta free up some space... This isn't 100% yet but it's pretty close.. I have a few images I wanna edit and I'm still working on some of the apks since a couple are only partially transparent but I wanted to get it out for you to use and test out.. Enjoy!



    MAKE A BACK UP PRIOR TO MODDING!!



    Installation Instructions:

    Simply download the theme, boot into recovery, wipe cache and dalvik cache (in the advanced menu), then install the theme... or use rom manager.. your choice... Make sure your Market is named Vending.apk, not com.android.vending.apk and same with Gmail, either uninstall it or rename it Gmail.apk in system/app...



    *This was designed to use on Chevy's themed version, if you use the unthemed rom you might have issues.. flash his themed version right over the unthemed rom w/o wiping data... it's pretty simple.. also, if you're using a theme chooser theme, you need to revert back to the stock rom or else half my images won't be themed*



    What kinda fun stuff is included in this theme?


    framework-res - Remixed and loaded
    Browser - PartiallyTransparent
    Calculator - Transparent
    Calendar - Transparent (the daily events page is just inverted... still working on that one)
    Camera - Transparent
    ChevyNo1 Tools - Transparent
    CMParts - Transparent
    Contacts - Partially Transparent
    DeskClock - Already Transparent
    Gallery3D - Basic Themed
    Gmail 2.3.5 - Transparent (inner message screen is inverted)
    GoogleQuickSearchBox - 90% Transparent
    LatinIME - Themed GB Keyboard
    Mms - Transparent (set it to Black Background in settings)
    Music - Transparent (except the songs screen??)
    Phone - partially Transparent
    Settings - Transparent
    SystemUI - Basic Themed
    Vending 3.0.27 - Transparent (I used this version since it works.. 3.1.3 gives an error on 5.5)

    OTHER TRANSPARENT APPS I MADE:

    Twitter 2.1.2 - Transparent
    Facebook 1.6.4 - Transparent
    GoogleVoice 4.2.36 - Transparent
    Google+ 1.06 - Transparent
    Dropbox 1.2.4 - Transparent
    Talk 1.3 - Partially Transparent - I didn't incude this in the main theme because I can't seem to get it to launch a video chat w/o fc's.. so if you don't use that feature, then have fun with this one... the chat screen is just inverted for now..

    Yeah I believe so.... I left this one solid cause I didn't want my icons to bleed into the background... but I'll mess with it and get it looking good and then release a final version...

    +1 on this, that would look cool. Question,have ya stopped doin the animated pull down screens? Not that I want one (unless it comes with them) but I've noticed lately its kinda dying off a little. Or is it just me?

    I still have animated pulldowns but in order for mine to look smooth I had use full size images which made my SystemUI weigh a lot and I got some process.media. fc's.... I didn't like releasing a theme that has that issue... that's why I stopped putting them in my themes for now....

    I've strayed away from using themes ever since I switched to chevy's rom way back on 4.5, mainly because I never really saw anything I liked. I gotta say, bro, this one looks fantastic. It's so different than most of your other themes, looks very crisp. With that said, I'm gonna give this a go, but how much space do you suggest freeing up in system?

    Try for 15+... but like the OP says, the apks are just replacing the stock ones but mine weigh more... I haven't had any issues since the first port to 5.5. with bootloops and I flash stuff 50 times a day testing..... and thank you btw... it still has a few things to be finished up and then I'll release a final...

    Everything seems to be working great so far. Had a couple reboots right after the install, but maybe I didn't give it enough time to catch up since I cleared dalvik and cache. Got a nice semi-transparent theme for LP+ widgets that blends well, and I found this sweet wallpaper here on DF. Thanks for the great theme! dancedroid
