» Dark Glass theme with DroidMod v1.0 - White Clock +

The DroidMod Team (formerly of sholes.info) relased a new ROM (--one of the best availible, I might add). The only "problem" with the ROM is that it does not include the ability to select the Smoked Glass theme when applying it. This is not so much a problem as a design decision.

The Metamorph application, available on the Market, lets you apply all manner of themes to your device, uncluding the "Dark Glass" theme previously included in the SholesMod ROM. Thus, the new ROM opts to exclude theme support directly, and just let users apply whatever theme they like via Metamorph.

That's fine, and Metamorph is an awesome application. However, there is a minor hang-up. AdamZ's Smoked Glass metamorph themes do not include a hacked services.jar, so you have a black statusbar clock, and the XML files in framework-res don't change all of the foreground text colors to white for notifications.

So, here is a simple Metamorph theme that adds a services.jar and framework-res.apk with white clock and notifications (just used colorChangev3.jar on them). Should work with any theme on any 2.0 or 2.0.1 ROM. :)

  1. Install the Smoked Glass theme located here (the "Glass Theme Only - No Blue" is the closest to the one previously included in SholesMod).
  2. Install the "White Clock Notifications" theme from here
  3. ???
  4. PROFIT!

Happy droiding. :)

Thanks so much man!

I had found some other way to do this, but it involved a lot of complicated scripting, so I didn't even bother trying. Sure, I know Linux and how to program, but the whole point of DroidMod was simplicity since I don't have time for any of that!

Anyway, I really appreciate you taking the time to make this. Now my Droid is complete!
