Looks like the text colors need a little work. I'll upload a new version later today.

Another update, Date field size may clip the day on some models. Should be fixed now. Thanks BCollins521!

Nice looking theme!

Sorry, haven't received notification of posts...

dtun87222: Open DM, select App Loader. Once it reads your phone, select add. Locate the ALX file of the theme, select next. Once it loads it to your phone then DM will soft reboot your phone. To activate the theme, once the phone finishes its nap, select Options > Themes then highlight the theme and press in on the trackball. It'll take a few seconds to initialize the theme but once you have control of the cursor again the theme is loaded and your good to go.

dmiller1856: I can look into it. I don't know how easy it'll be to shift it over but I'll take a look. Any particular version youxxx8217;re interested in?

UPDATE: With the help of BCollins521, many thanks, we now know this theme is usable in 4.5 without any drastic repercussions like say Surreal theme (endless reboots). Also, I've updated the theme (just moved some items around to avoid conflicts with the WiFi/VM icons which I can't change or see in the theme builder.

Theme looks great!

One question though, more out of curiosity; I noticed in the first screen shot there is a hole where an icon should be, why is that?

That icon would most likely be the profiles icon. I am guessing the creator made it invisible to keep the banner clean looking. Unfortunately, there is no way to make the profiles icon invisible in the banner, but visible in the applications menu. However, there will be in the next Theme Builder.

Indeed, this is a trick that Corey told me to make it cleaner. Since I use BBSmart Shortcuts, not having the profile icon on the home screen doesn't bother me (You can still select it on the home screen if you move the trackball to the right and click in).
Thanks guys for replying!

Thanks for that, having not developed a theme yet, I'd have never thought of that.

Again very nice theme; I was just overly curious. I don't use the icon myself; shortcut "F" works for me.

Nothing wrong with being curious
