Windows 7 (Classic/Basic/Premium) theme for WM6.5

79 posts in this topic

Just to be clear... THIS THEMES ONLY WORK ON WINDOWS MOBILE 6.5 (last theme update is for WM6.5 build 23409!)

I'm currently working on a new WM6.5 theme, lemme know what you think...

It's based on Windows Se7en upcoming OS.

step 1: Install the "SdkCerts.cab" file if you haven't already done this for another program.

step 2: Install the "W7_Basic_WQVGA_v2.cab" and/or "W7_Premium_WQVGA_v2.cab" file.

step 3: Go to your today settings and select the "W7_basic" or "W7_Premium" theme and enjoy...

If all works well the theme should look like this... Well except for the start button and close button... but I recommend using the iconset nikos_BT_wm_6.5_new_UI_3_taskbar_M5vert.cab (by nikosxri) for this...

**UPATED ON 29-07-2009: I've figured it out and the themes are working fine now, simply install, select the theme and enjoy the ride!!! :D

**BY using this patch (by Lisbian08!) you can take out the START text itself (like the original Vista and Windows 7) next to the Windows Orb. Just uncompress the content of the zip file (with total commander) and place it into the WINDOWS folder... Make sure to make a backup of the original DLL file first!

The cab file itself can be uninstalled ofcourse...

**UPDATED ON 30-07-2009: Version 2.1 contains blue color corrections (tnx to Blazingwolf) so just reinstall the theme. If the themes don't showup correctly try switching between themes, I had this issue also and by switching from a flat theme to mine fixed it... I think it's a buffer problem somehow but the theme itself is just fine...

**UPDATED ON 26-08-2009: I'm back from vacation and i've got a new Omnia (old one was broken, a problem with the connection socket), so now I could work on my theme again... Well anywayz the new Windows 7 Premium theme (v2.2) is for Windows Mobile 6.5 build 23034, see below... If the theme doesn't work straight away make sure you select a flat theme before and then mine... Special thanks go to blazingwolf for making the grey disappear... (Newer theme features are the lower button backgrounds and start/close button image within the theme). Just see the pics below ;) .

So what will be in the next WM6.5 build? A close button which is back on the upper right corner again and a clock down right like on our desktops, that would make things just perfect for this theme...

Thats your premium.

post-457335-1245498946_thumb.jpg

I vote for darkblue up and bottom bars with no degradation and also blue scrollbar wm 6.5 (like the one you have in the basic version but with darker color).

The 2nd basic that you send me was ok.

It was after the correction of font color of the selected items

I just tried 2.3 basic and premium and neither of them work. I get the default background and the funky blue task and tray bar. I also get 6.1 menus. :D

Tried on my 6.5 ROM.

Yes, I am using v. 2.4 and am getting 6.1 menus as well. And both the Premium and Basic look the exact same.

Well it's not vista but Windows seven :D

**closed for further testing, development will start again when I have my own Omnia back from repair... it's difficult to test things without a phone ;)

in the mean time offcourse you can still vote for your own background or taskbar color/picture.
