Custom Theme Friday: Invertnito by ‘Shocka2430′ for Sapphire

Happy Friday everyone! Now we all know Mrpicolas is a master of customizing home screens with a bunch of cool widgets and apps to make it look how you want, but may I just say, I think I know how to make a pretty cool home screen myself. I am a more reserved ‘less is more’ type of guy and can’t really enjoy looking at a bunch of clutter. (I need order!)  And let me tell you, that’s what makes this theme quite nice. Thanks to Ludacrosse05 (for always hooking it up Bro Status) I am able to tinker with a bunch of imagery.

Last week we had a few people wanting a lighter theme. Is this light enough for you?

This is the Invertnito theme by Shocka2430 based on BGill55′s Incognito theme but, you guessed it….Inverted! I’m usually not a white notification bar kinda guy, but I will admit that this theme is extremely clean. Good job Shocka and BGill!

Instructions on installation after the jump!

This theme is for Sapphire 1.1.1 and the original Droid only.

Instructions:

1.  Install CCROM’s Sapphire 1.1.1 ROM which you can pick it up from ROM Manager under ‘CVPCS’.

Select the stock theme and after it loads up then we can start having fun!

2. Download Invertnito theme HERE and place the zip file on root of your SD Card.

3. Open up ROM Manager and select “Install ROM from SD Card”. Locate the Invertnito.zip and hit it.

4. You won’t need to wipe but PLEASE EVERYONE, make a backup! Why would you root and not take advantage of that feature?

5. Allow Clockwork Recovery to work it’s magic and and after reboot you will be playing in a Winter Wonderland! Enjoy!

——————————————————————————————————–

*Note* – May I say that this theme works great with the Themed White LauncherPro we posted. ;-)

*UPDATE* - BGill55 has confirmed with me that this zip file will work with ALL GEM Builds.

Let us know if you run into any problems and we’ll try and help you out. Check out our Live Support IRC Channel! :-)

    I love this theme and switched to it as soon as I saw it. but I've noticed my lock seen isn't centered. Its shifted to the right, any ideas?

    • Shocka2430

      Bgill actually found a fix for this and it's in the invertnito red theme. I'll have it fixed in the blue when I put out an update in the next day or so.

  • Shocka2430

    I have actually read that the white uses less battery life on the Droid then black. I'd say its true, great battery life for me so far.

    Looking good Tim, I think I might have to try the red to match my Redskins theme lol It was good drinking beer and eating pizza at the Mot/Adobe Conference. You might want to check out SF New Tech meet up. New App companies in the mobile space might be something plus the famous Taco truck will be there lol.

    Let me know if you decide to attend.

  • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

    These icons came with the theme.
    Also, I think you wanna talk to Luda about that. Not me :-P

  • Guest

    That is a cool theme I wish I could get that on my Nexus One. I will have to search around to see where I can find a similar one. XDA is probably my best bet.

  • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

    I didn't notice much of a difference. I had it going all day yesterday through the Adobe event all the way till I got to work this morning at 1Ghz. I would say that's pretty good. And knowing me, I'm a heavy user lol

  • BKTee

    Does it eat battery life to display pure white on the DROID's LCD screen like it does on a Samsung AMOLED?

  • Branshaw09

    I want that White wallpaper!!

  • The350zWolf

    Sad that it's only for Sapphire, would it be too hard to port it to Simply Stunning? It's really cool!

  • tbaybe

    LOVE IT!!!

  • The350zWolf

        Actually, if you are looking for the power of Photoshop without the price tag… Gimp is fully Open Source and free. (It's what I used for my bootamimations) you can find it for Linux ad Windows. You can find more information here. http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
