Download: 30 Additional Sense 2.0 Skins for Your HTC Thunderbolt

If the stock Skins on your HTC Thunderbolt weren’t satisfying your needs, then get ready because we have some treats for you today.  XDA member sopL87 ported a bunch of themes over into 30 additional skins that can be downloaded and installed on any TBolt running Sense 2.0.  That’s right, no need to be rooted or anything else; all of you can enjoy these.  I picked 3 of my favorites and included direct download links below, but you’ll want to head to the thread link listed to get the additional 27.  This is some amazing work right here.

Download:  rEVOlution | OBsensed | distINCtion

To install:

1.  Download a file manager from the market.
2.  Download the files from above, or from the XDA thread to your phone.
3.  When they finish, tap on them and select “Install.”
4.  When that finishes, head back to your home screen and select “Personalize.”
5.  You will now see your new Skin listed.
6.  Repeat steps for each additional skin.

All credit to sopL87 over at XDA Forums. Download the rest of his skins at this thread.

Cheers Picolas!

    These skins are great. They all work, they all look fantastic and the only problem I have now is choosing which one to use. Think I’ll just switch them every hour.

    oops! would someone please put this up in you tube? iam totally new at this and was not sucessful thanks. the additional skins for htc tbolt!

  • Chinoefra

    would someone please put this up in you tube? iam totally new at this and was not sucessful thanks. you guys are awesome

  • Jsnyder42

    I am having trouble downloading them from XDA. Is it possible for you to download all of them the same way you did the other 3? I was able to download them and there are more of them that I want…

    • Googalicious_Bot

      Are you downloading them from the posts at the bottom? If so, you’re on the right track. All you have to do is download the apk file (If it downloads as a .bin, then go into file manager and change it to an apk), go into your file manager and click on it. Once you do that, you will have the option to install and it installs right to your skin picker.

      • Jsnyder42

        This might be a dumb question, but how do you change it to apk once your in the file manager? Am I supposed to unzip the file?

    anyone know what battery app that is that’s displaying the green battery on the left of the notification bar in the first 2 pictured???

    • Dshudson

      Battery Indicator Pro

  • project.in.process

    just finally got them all (after using my computer to download the .bin files showing up on the phone)

    this is awesome. like a brand new phone after just 6 days of owning it!

  • Dshudson

    There has to be a easy way to change icons.. i refuse to install a shitty program like Open Home or ADW Launcher.

  • Dshudson

    question.. when you install any of these.. how to i get rid of my icons and get the ones shown in each of those 3 examples.. thx

  • Anonymous

    These skin are amazing. its almost like a new phone even though its already a new phone, lol.
    This is another reason Android is much better than iOS in terms of customization.

  • Mgangale62

    The rest of his skins are zip files,,not apk,,how do u install them if ur not rooted? Or am I missing something?

    • Anonymous

      Download Astro File Manager (or any other file manager) from the market. It will allow you to open the zip files from your phone.

  • Benjamin Jewett

    I tried to download in the XDA forum but couldn’t download because I didn’t have permission? I appreciate the direct links to download as such in the post. Can you post more of these?

    • KO

      Unlikely. XDA is very finicky about people posting their content elsewhere without permission. just sign up for xda, and youll be able to use the links there. Don’t worry, it doesnt cost anything

  • Mgangrock

    I downloaded bnb I put the zip on my SD via astro,,but it is a zip not a all,,how do I install it?

    • Mgangrock

      It’s not apk all file,,,how do I download it?

  • Cwpit81

    thank u sir

  • Luckyr1981

    so wheres the other 27 skins. I only saw 3…. not 30 :'(

    • Luckyr1981

      Oops!!! My bad. Maybe I should read everything before I ask. -_-

    do you need to be rooted to do this???

    • Anonymous

      Whether I’m rooted should have no bearing on your ability to use this. However, if you’re wondering about the need for your phone to be rooted, please re-read the post. If you haven’t found your answer, re-read it again. If you’re still uncertain, focus on these words: “That’s right, no need to be rooted or anything else; all of you can enjoy these.” I hope this helps. :-)

  • Cpaulfuchs

    I go to personalize under settings and no skins to be found?

    • project.in.process

      after downloading these (most likely to the default Download folder on your SD card), did you install each one using a file explorer like Astro or ESFileExplorer?

      install each one, then return to your home screen & Personalize

      • Cpaulfuchs

        I got it now, it won’t work if Launcher Pro is installed. How do you get the top icons to show up though?

        • project.in.process

          the notification bar icons?
          those are the .rar files that are available to download farther down on the page

          they require a bit more of work to be applied onto the phone; instructions are available just above the download links for those .rar files

  • meatydojo

    nice job.this phone rules :)

  • Lord_20_bucks

    So do you guys think that there is gonna be a one touch root method for the thunderbolt or is that a no go?

      If there is, it’ll be a while.

    So nice…

  • DCwhat

    Anyone installing any of these themes with different notification bars and the notification bar not change after applying the theme? I’ve rebooted as well and not change to the notification bar.

  • CultLdr

    Great stuff! Love the “themeing” on the fly

  • Lenny

    Love the skins!

    Is there anyway to get the “stock flip clock” back?

  • Svetla

    These skins sorta suck. He did a nice job trying to make something nice, but i would give all skins a 2.5/10 altogether.

    • Anonymous

      I got mine and sold my X on swappa this past Sunday. With the theming on the fly, the only real reason I see to root this bad boy is to get rid of the bloatware!

  • Hjoconor

    anyone know how to get to the other apk’s?
    I can only find zip files from the other thread and get figure out how to install from that.

    thanks.

    • Hjoconor

      I tried renaming .zip to .apk in astro and “open with app manager” did nothing.

      Any help would be great. some of these look very nice.

      … was that even necessary to be said?

      Would you like a cookie because you are getting the Evo 3D?

      3D is a gimmick. Was in the 50s, 80s, and now.

      Don’t let the door hit ya on the way out.

        Who cares about the 3D portion. Have you seen the specs on this. Next year, when verizon gets it, much like the warmed over EVO that is now the Thunderbolt you guys will be singing its praises.

    Also kinda wishing I had a TBolt – but still waiting to see what comes out this summer.

    • Anonymous

      I understand why you want to wait but I have to admit that I’m glad I didn’t! This phone is a beast. The feature list is huge and HTC Sense is just slick. Also this phone is extremely fast even though its not dual core.

      • Chris

        Can you do wireless tether not rooted with it?

        • Anonymous

          you can with mobile hotspot. it’s free for like a month and then you have to pay to be able to use that feature.

        • http://twitter.com/kathleen_em K

          Yes, you can install tether apps (like PDA net) without having it rooted.

  • palomosan

    Nice.

    I was just there! It’s like you read my mind. I picked up the rEVOlution skin, it’s hot!!

    now i never need to root!

  • http://twitter.com/NemaCystX NemaCystX

    I have a couple of my designs in there along with my clocks, sopL87 ported them to skin format for me. I might make more, but probably not before Gingerbread comes since it will change the UI again.

    • pj

      If you are indeed the creator or contributor to some of these skins, then bravo to you sir. Thank you for your time and donation to the community. These are amazing!
