    Through many, many, hours of, hot and sweaty work, I give this to you all.

    I love Sense. And apparently many of you do also.

    THIS IS STILL BEING WORKED ON!! But this is a good base to start with. MUCH more will be added in the coming days/weeks.

    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHATEVER MAY HAPPEN TO YOUR PHONE!!!

    Breakdown:
    BlurHome.apk = App drawer
    framewrok-res.apk = HTC like statusbar
    Music.apk = Modded music widget, and app icon.
    Settings.apk = Modded Power Widget and app icon.
    services.jar = White statusbar clock.


    Installation:
    1. Download here. Unzip and place the files in the root of your SD card, put the phone in PC Mode.
    2. Run these commands:
    Code:
    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/services.jar /system/framework
    cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework
    cp /sdcard/BlurHome.apk /system/app
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    reboot
    Screenshots:









    Yes, the app drawer is a bit off. That's a problem with android though. It's drawing the images towards the middle. As of now it's impossible to fix. Altough if you do know how to fix it please let me know .

    Pretty cool work. Let us know how things change as you refine.

    I think this sends a pretty clear message to the phone manufacturers:

    We do what we want.

    If I were just to run the commands as typed below, would I just end up with the black status bar and the white clock?

    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/services.jar /system/framework
    cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    reboot

    I might have messed something up, lol. Fixing now.

    Fixed, the link it the word, "here," in the installation instructions.

    Excellent work! I almost want to root just for this.
    Why haven't you rooted yet?

    And, one last question, if I ever want to go back to the stock status bar, how would I go about doing that?

    You just have to have a stock framework-res and stock services.jar, and then do the same process you did to install the theme.

I've tried following to guides to get adb running with win7 but it won't let me install the driver.... It's says it's already uptodate but its the MOT Composite ADB.....

    You should just download the Android SDK, install ADB, and then add everything to your paths. Once that's done everything should work.

    Very nice! ADB is a real PITA to get going but once it's all up and running, things like this are a breeze to install.

    Nice work!

    No, tbh idk even know what that is. I've heard of it from the news, but idk.

    Did you back up the files that you replaced when you installed the theme?

    Exactly which files did you change?

    Did you change the music and settings as well as the services.jar, framework, and blur?

    This is what I did.

    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/services.jar /system/framework
    cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework
    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    reboot


    Thats the only stuff I changed.
