Here You Go, the Droid Life LauncherPro and Homescreen Setup

We’ve been feeling the pressure to share our secret homescreen setup from some of you, so let’s go ahead and reveal it all!

  • The launcher is LauncherPro Plus with a custom icon set and custom launcher button.
  • The wallpaper is a quick black and white DL special that I made to fit this setup perfectly.
  • The clock is D-Clock Widget, stretched using LP Plus.
  • Weather is Weather Forecast Widget (kortolk skin)
  • The battery meter is called BattStatt.
  • That’s it!

All download links and files after the jump!

  • The Droid X looks like an outstanding phone and if I was on Verizon it would be a no-brainer. This makes my droid more amazing. Thanks for this theme.

    Usually people go for the fun apps like live wallpapers, themes and games. … LauncherPro allows us to set up to 7 home screens. …thats really nice of it..

  • Gatehouse Academy review

    Great features! we go to a particular screen, and get information …. All Launcher Pro icons have a double function: Telephone (tap) + Contacts (swipe) etc. .

  • Too expensive for the same capability as Sprint.Great review but after using Sprint and their current plan, I can’t go back to Verizon.

  • Droids, both rooted, both running custom roms that change too often to list and that’s the fun of it!

  • I just love this theme in my droid. This makes my droid more amazing. Thanks for this theme.

  • Well The only one I could find is not the same one pictured above. So I went to an earlier backup I made and put the .apk on my SD card. Thanks for sharing with us

  • M1ghtysauc3

  • Jos Hoang Nguyen

    Does it work with Motorola Milestone unrooted with android 2.1?

  • Webmatt01

    Can anyone make me a “foursquare” button to use in Launcher Pro with this theme/font??

  • CK

    I have been waiting on a reliable method for rooting Froyo on the Droid 1, and when it came out today, I seized the moment and tried to get something close to this theme, but wasn't able to install either one of the themes for the status bar. I even went through the pain of deodexing. Any suggestions?

  • WebMatt01

    Manup456… I need a “Foursquare” icon for this theme!!

  • Jikangai

    I was wondering if you had to have root to add these nice icons and stuff?

  • Ej

    The launcher icons still wont work for me…i load the file onto my phone, long press the icons, press custom icon, and it takes me to my photo gallery where I cant access the launcher icons…someone help?

  • Tominator1970

    Could be just me, but the Weather Forcast widget is just drinking my battery – in the 10 minutes it was installed, the battery dropped by about 8%…

  • kellex took a min.. or a few hours… but got te black notification bar…. only difference is the clock at the top is in black numbers… on a black notification bar… dont care that much so if no fix its cool.. but any suggestions anyone?

  • BattSatt link is down

  • This one is so cool~!!!

  • Burtonbada

    are you from Portland Oregon??

    • antintyty

      NO, she just likes to know what the weather is doing in Portland….

      *FAIL*

  • BKTee

    Battstatt isn't in the Market anymore. At least I couldn't find it the other day. The only one I could find is not the same one pictured above. So I went to an earlier backup I made and put the .apk on my SD card.

    Then I uploaded it to Dropbox, just in case anyone else was having trouble finding it. 😀

  • Giced Angeles

  • Evilvampbabe

    I love this theme! Makes my droid that much more awesome. Only thing is I couldn't figure or that black status bar thing. I really want it. Anyways of there's a simpler way that I can obtain it that would be great!

  • Evilvampbabe

    How do I get the word icons? I downloaded them and they're on astro but nothing happens. I'm lost

    • http://www.mediafire.com/?bi6xcug62hktann those are the icons… put them on your computer… then drag and drop them to your phone…. then in the dock, long press the icon and choose change icon… choose custom icon, then open the folder with the manup icon pack and choose the icon according

  • BigFonz

  • i had this setup basically stolen from that dave guy….. i feel that me commenting yesterday in morse code… thats what caused this thread….

        • Keithsmnr

          Correct, there is no 00:43 PM. 00:43 AM would be 12:43 AM but something is wrong here…

    • 12:43.. on d-clock widget

    • Chris Nimon

      I've never seen 00:43 PM before, 00:43 AM sure but……. I thought it was just military time at first. Kellex, did you join the Navy? lol

    • Totaan

  • Philsfanforeva

  • BigFonz

    Finally!

  • Matthenard

    “Widget Setup” links are all broken. Thanks.

  • Jade Falcon

    I'm laughing right now because I've got identical widgets, a very, very similar background, and the exact same icons. In generally the same positions, too.Just more centered.

  • Micah

    Anybody else thankful you've got android and can “Chrome to Phone” all of these links?!? I LOVE it!

    • aaronvail

      yeah, I use that app a lot!

  • evams

    THANKS!
    We can all stop scratching our heads.
    It Looks Great! Minimal but Stylish.
    BTW – Love the site! Quick and Very Prompt up to date news. Vids are a plus too!
    Props!

  • Rufus2021

    how do i get into “pc mode” to get the notification bar going?

  • Colereini

    How do you install the notification bar? And do you have to be on the leaked 2.2 to do it?

  • SsjnimmaX

    kellex what happened to Beautiful Widgets!?!?!?! =)

    • kellex

      Yesterday's news. 😛

      • OH NO YOU DIDN'T!!! 😛

        *snaps fingaz*

      • And like the mindless ADD-riddled nerd-ish lemming that I am, I just replicated your setup. And then tomorrow (or next week maybe), like the mindless ADD-riddled nerd-ish lemming that I am, I'll change it again 🙂

  • Goldenboy504

    Please someone tell me how to load the custom icons. I loaded a pack and its in astro but I don't know how to access it. [email protected] I'd appreciate it

    • JackDroid

      make sure the file isnt zipped (just check astro) and then if you have launcherpro then long press the icons you already have and youll see change icon logo or something, from there you should know

      • Nicksmith1953

        when i pick change icon, then custom icon, it goes to my camera gallera! what the feezie???

    • http://www.mediafire.com/?bi6xcug62hktann those are the icons… put them on your computer… then drag and drop them to your phone…. then in the dock, long press the icon and choose change icon… choose custom icon, then open the folder with the manup icon pack and choose the icon according..

  • I have to be dumb, i cant get this to work…how do i change the icons on luncher pro plus?

    • kellex

      Long press, choose “custom icon” then scroll through the folder of icons and pick one. 🙂

  • cv

    its not really a secret. the theme has been out for awhile on xda

    • kellex

      It's not rEVOlution, just the launcher and icons. 😛

  • Retrokid223

  • bnx

    I love that clock but I am having trouble finding a widget that shows the day/date and looks nice.. any one have suggestions?

  • Retrokid223

    kellex is your favorite droid device is the X?? lol

    • kellex

      Right now yeah.

  • tbaybe

    so nice of u to share 🙂

  • JDFHudson

    So do I need to be rooted to do this?

    • kellex

      Only part would be for the black themed bar. The rest is all just stock stuff.

      • josh1980

        What do you use to replace the icons with the words, launcher pro or some other editor?

        • Puck

          launcher pro

          • josh1980

            Thanx

          • Fresh

            Is there a way to change the icons to words without using launcher pro?

          • josh1980

            Is it easy to get the stock icons back?

          • Trooper

            How do you add the custom dock to launcher pro plus? Icons are easy enough to figure out, but how do I use the dock? Thanks

      • Anonymous

        Any way to get this awesomeness all on a Droid 1? (By that I mean the black themed bar.)

  • xFenixKnightx

    My eyes just turned into robot eyes. @_@

  • PezHead

    Damn, that is slick!
