    Big thanks for ecsnead of blacked out theme for letting me use dialer calculator, Pandora transparent (with tweaks done by me) which flow well with Kuro IMO.

    What you need to know:

    after/before flashing, use chevy tools to change all notification colors to white.

    Lockscreen sliders are TRANSPARENT...they are there...you know where they are (others dont), i do this for security reasons as I dont like patterns/pins.

    This theme contains ADW as well as LP, whichever you choose...feel free to delete the other. LP is named Fede-launcher in /system/app. You can delete in terminal either one by the following command

    Su
    Sysrw

    to delete adw launcher.

    cd /system/app
    rm adw.apk
    reboot

    or to delete LP

    cd /system/app
    rm com.fede.launcher-1.apk
    reboot


    Whats themed:

    A BUNCH...statusbar, notifications (sense kuro style), battery, framework, a ton of apps.



    Whats included:

    ADW (blacked out ecsnead)
    Barcode scanner
    browser themed
    calculator (ecsnead, tweaks by me)
    camera
    clock (set alarm using google voice, "set alarm 8am" using voice)
    contacts
    Phone dialer
    droidforums
    email
    facebook inverted (thebowers port v1.5)
    fancy widget black
    gallery
    gmail
    google search (from UD stock theme)
    Gingerbread keyboard (actingrezy)
    Maps/latitude/places/navigation
    market
    messaging (ecsnead)
    music (themed music mod)
    Pandora transparent
    superuser
    gtalk black
    twitter
    video player
    goggle voice (thebowers)
    voice dialer
    wired tether
    wireless tether
    youtube


    Gingerbread keyboard


    Gingerbreak_keyboard


    Wired Tether (download with phone and install, regular apk install)

    Wired_Tether


    LP Dock and Icons (dont flash, just unzip to sd card)

    Dock_Icons




    Install instructions:

    1. Go to /system/tts/lang_pico and delete all languages besides english (unless you use other languages) This frees up plenty of system space.

    2. Move your bootanimation.zip from /system/media to /data/chevyno1 folder. Chevy's tools will do it for you if you put it in /data/local. Nice feature chevy!

    3. Install as an update.zip for spr, and as is for clockworkmod recovery.

    4. Ninja folder on sdcard for additional apps and dock images for lp

    Be sure you have a backup...thats the standard line we should all be acustomed to

    Kuro_ss4.96_v2.0 (framework only, flash if you are already on kuro)

    FULL_Kuro_ss4.96_v2.0 (full theme, Includes themed apps as well as the contacts fix)

    Kuro_Blue_Battery_framework (Want green back? flash Kuro2.0 framework above)


    Contacts Fix:

    Contacts_fix (flash only if you are already running Kuro)


    Last but not least. Honor yourself....Honor others.

    Enjoy.

    Post bugs here.

    Also...feel free to post up your screenshots. I use shootme screengrabber from market for root users.

    if you have installed my theme, use root explorer to move com.android.tetherusb.apk file from /system/app to /sd card.

    Reboot....

    then go to /sdcard and just touch to install as you would a normal .apk file.

    After binaries and config auto install...wired tether works.

    I will update the OP to exclude that app from the flash.

    any interest in Transitions for Kuro?

    I wanted to do some for myself, and test. If successful, would anyone else be interested in me sharing them?

    I hate to sound like a noob but what are transitions? I love your theme, so anything you think would be cool, I would at least like to see. Count me in on transitions...

    transitions are animations of windows. For example, how your home/unlock/keyboard/popups/volume popup etc come into and out of the screen. Stocky they just kinda fade in from center of the image (except keyboard...which pops up from the bottom.

    I can include transition in my theme and have it as a separate download.

    If you dont like it...you can flash back the stock ones. No biggie.

    Transitions would be real cool. I put a custom rom on my wife's droid Eris and the programs / apps flip and swirl as they open and close .. it adds a lot to her rom. Her friends are always asking how she got it to do that ..... please add transitions .....

    su
    cd /system/app
    rm facebook.apk
    reboot

    then go download from market.

    Just one little issue... don't know if it's fixable/changeable anywhere, but when pressing 'Menu' in ADW, the options that pop up have a black background that obscures the black text underneath the icons. It's not part of the statusbar text options so I can't change it. Not a big deal, I know what all the buttons are.

    Edit: whoops, didn't notice the two posts above me. Never mind!

    Are you planning on expanding upon the transitions? They are great now.. but it would sure be awesome if things transitioned from the home screen .. when opening and when closing ... just really spice it up!!

    I love what your doing ... between Chevy's rom and your theme, my phone is the envy of my friends ..!!!

    I think that's what makes my theme different than others is that its changing and progress. I get feedback and research new things to incorporate based on suggestions. I like your suggestion so I will look into it. Its fullfilling to provide for a rom that has a lack of themes too. Chevy is the most overlooked rom.

    Stay tuned. Its beyond me why I don't have my own forum lol. In the other hand its cool to be kinda mom and pop and help others.

    Ok..? Before I install this theme I tried moving the boot animation zip with Astro and when I goto the data folder it wont let me paste...? Also when I went to delete the languages with Astro it keeps saying error deleting file. Which file is the English one anyway? Thanks, Jamie
