Custom Theme Friday: Purple Passion for Sapphire 1.0.0

Talk about a busy day. We officially launched our IRC Channel which completely blew up and MrPicolas (Dr. Root) is still recovering in the Trauma Center at the local ER. We hope for a speedy recovery!

Today, I present Purple Passion by ‘roberj13’. I enjoy LOTS of his work! This theme has been ported to Sapphire 1.0.0 and runs incredibly well! Especially since the Sapphire team has built such a beautiful ROM.

Continue on to see Gallery and instructions!


Download and flash Sapphire 1.0.0 stock theme!

1. Download the Purple Passion theme: Link
2. Place file on root of your SD Card.
3. Flash file through ROM Manager – “Install zip from SD”

And that’s it! Sit back and watch magic happen!
Enjoy everyone! <3

    I know how to install wallpapers on my SD card. I was just wondering if you guys know where the wallpapers are stored on the phone? Basically what is the file path to get to the wallpapers folder stored in the droid x and not on the sd card? Thanks!

  • karyncristina

    Love it, because I love purple. But my Droid isn't rooted (anymore). Using my Droid X as my main phone now anyway.

  • EC8CH

    Ugh… I'll stick with rEVOlution on Sapphire.

  • Flyinion

    Psstt Kellex & crew you guys might want to mention in articles about flashing Sapphire to make sure to also either check the box in RM to get Google Apps as well, or if manually downloading to make sure and download the Google Apps package as well from the Sapphire site since it needs to be flashed right after the ROM itself.

  • Shyshadow48

    you guys i added the shapphire but now theres no market app or nothing? what just happened? theres no gmail or nothing? how am i suppose to get rom manager again or load apps?

    • Flyinion

      You need to roll back to your backup. Now, go redownload/install Sapphire and make sure the check the box to get the Google Apps. They had to remove it for legal reasons from the main package but you absolutely need it or yeah you'll be missing a lot of stuff.

      • EC8CH

        Same reason cyanogen doesn't include Google apps

  • Its nice but, since I like blue better im running simply stunning v4.7 chevy1 rom…

  • Cnsxskillz

    Im new to this and have not rooted yet. But if I did root my phone and install this how would I get it back to the original theme?

    • skltr21

      almost every ROM comes stock with the original stock theme. then you add these kinds of themes over the original theme.

  • The_Other_Ray

    Check out stewart1champ's mario'd theme for cyanogenmod rc3. Awesome.

  • Shyshadow48

    how do i download and flash the saphire stcok theme? help please.

    • Shyshadow48

      can u just download it on rom manager? or i need the saphire? i have no idea how to flash it.

      • Android69

        Sapphire is in rom manager under “CVPCS” or you can get it from their website.

        • Shyshadow48

          i have rom manager premium and do not see CVPCS =[ sorry im sorta slow:p

          • Shyshadow48

    • Thanks 🙂 you know how to make a lady feel special….

    • balthuszar

      i'm currently running purple passion and really enjoy it…i'll look into the liquid froyo v1.5 though

  • Chris Nimon

    Purple Passion, the drink of choice for high school girls everywhere. Gonna have to get me a 2 liter 🙂

    • balthuszar

      coulda swore that was called Purple Drank?

      • Chris Nimon

        Of course i haven't been in high school since 1992 so they may have changed the name recently. http://i596.photobucket.com/albums/tt50/chrisni

        • balthuszar

          lol…i totally forgot that there was a purple passion beverage…i was referring to the incident with Oakland Raiders quarterback Jamarcus Russell and what he was arrested while drinking en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_drank

  • Purple, Not my thing lol, But the background look nice! =P


  • balthuszar

    tim, if you go to roberj's website, it says you have to place the file into the clockwork recovery folder on your sdcard and do it from there…i tried it just placing it on the root of the sdcard and it wouldnt work…just a loop of the sapphire gem

    • That's weird. It worked just fine for me…

      • balthuszar

        i figured you wouldnt put a broken series of instructions…i dont know why it didnt work for me…oh well…:)

  • balthuszar

    is there a way to delete restore files?…i have about 20 of them and would like to get rid of some of the older ones

    • skltr21

      In rom manager theres an option to manage and restore backups. go there and click on them and itll give you the option to delete it, rename it, or restore it.

      • balthuszar

        thank you skltr…that worked for me 🙂

  • Ignitros

    I really want that wallpaper! Can anyone post it? Where can I get it?

  • my first custom theme friday 🙂 i think ill stick with my slayher cyanogen theme though

  • Wow, that's very…purple.

    On a side note, is anyone having problems with receiving mms on Sapphire? Last time I had Sapphire it was 0.8.4 and I could never load mms that I was sent, was just wondering if it works ok in 1.0.0

  • The only thing this purple theme is missing is a hideous Barney wallpaper. So I am making one and will post it here in a few minutes when it is done.

    • balthuszar

      couldnt you get one that's just barney? or maybe just barney and baby bop? the yellow dinosaur isnt part of the original barney cast

      • Regardless of if that info is accurate…I'm baffled by the fact that not having the original Barney cast is a dealbreaker lol

        • balthuszar

          i didnt say it was a deal breaker…i was just saying lol i actually run purple passion for sapphire 1.0.0 with the midnight droid lwp and boot animation

    • Holy crap, i love it!

      • Here … I cut it down to a more reasonable size for you!


        I thought I was on a 386SX with 512k RAM and a 56k Modem downloading the first one!!!! If you don't know what a 386SX was, forget it. I am old.

  • WayneGrayson

    Does that wallpaper come with the theme? If not where can I find it?

  • rals


  • tbaybe
