Hello world :)

I've managed to make a honeycomb theme CorvusVegaRom 0.5 and Corvus 5 Rom.

It's based in a theme for Samsung Spica from Samdroid forum (thanks Ares12 and rrrulo). It has not only statusbar icons but a lot of other stuff.

Attached File  device1.png   166.81KB   329 downloads

Attached File  device3.png   199.84KB   274 downloads

Attached File  device5.png   59.98KB   323 downloads

Attached File  device6.png   93.95KB   263 downloads

I suggest to use VTL Launcher with the ADW Honeycomb theme for the desktop.

To use install the zip from the recovery

Enjoy it






P.S. thanks to Corvus, Ares12 and rrrulo

Nice theme but one or 2 issues;

when I installed it, it removed my Google account settings so they had to be re-added
text under widgets is slightly too big meaning that some labels don't look right (OK for icons though)

Yes, it removes the google account settings (I don't now why) but only in the first start. After that, all is OK.

Could you attach a screenshot about the widgets's problem? Thanks

Could it be a VTL bug? Anyway, I'll try to look if I can fix it.

Don't think it's VTL as they appeared OK before I change the theme.

Thanks

.........I'm trying to make an update zip for recovery, but at the moment it doesn't work for me (any help would be nice..........



http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=796474 says

"Main .zip
{

META-INF { com -> google -> android -> update-script } ( <- these are folders inside the META-INF except update-script this is a script file)

app (if the file you want to flash is an app it goes in this folder)

framework (if the file you want to flash is a framework file it goes in this folder)

system (if the file you want to flash is a system file (start up animations) it goes in this folder also make sure you put the correct subfolder inside this folder ie: if your file goes in system -> media make sure you put the file you wish to flash in a correctly named subfolder other wise it will flash into just the system folder and not into the correct folder within the system folder on your phone.)

}

After your folder structure is set up you must tell clockwork which folder or folders in the zip to flash. To do this open the update-script from the zip with a text editor and modify or add these lines with the correct folders.

copy_dir PACKAGE:framework SYSTEM:framework (use this for the framework folder)

copy_dir PACKAGE:app SYSTEM:app (use this for the app folder)

copy_dir PACKAGE:system SYSTEM:system (use this for the system folder)

Then sign your zip and flash."


There are images of the dir structure etc on the link above, let us know how you get on and thanks for all this excellent work! By the way your English is perfect!

I've tested it (with the lite version) and it's working for me. Maybe you can add the widgets again...

Looks great, nice job.
How feasible is it for the status bar to be moved to the bottom of the screen and the button ordering be moved to fully replicate the Honeycomb bar?
Would look fantastic if this were possible.

Edit: I have just seen this on the CM7 with HC tweaks ROM so it is possible, but anyone know how easy this is to implement for Corvus ROM?

I'm sorry, I'm not a developer (yet :) ). I had the same idea and search for a solution, but I didn't had luck. I saw that it's a mod for Nook, but they don't explain how to port it...

Edit: I've bottom statusbar working. Stay tunned.

This failed when trying to install it with the latest version of clockwork mod. Said something about that style of update not supported from v3.0 clockwork onwards. Could you please add the adb steps back to this thread too as I put your theme on and have now moved to latest version of clockwork and corvus5 and really want the theme back!!

I'm in my computer, so it's not tested:

adb push framework-res.apk /system/framework
adb push Music.apk /system/app
adb push DownloadProvider.apk /system/app

Perfect, thank you.

Was it your framework file that had the nice 'android' boot animation? I'm sure it came up when i installed your theme on corvus0.5 but on corvus5 it doesn't display. Not a big deal just wanted to mention it.

Thanks again for sharing your work it is very much appreciated.

Updated first post. Now working in new recovery.

By the way, you're right. The boot animation is missing with the new Corvus rom. I Don't when I'll have time to look at that. It's easter holidays here :)
