Theme: Stock Gingerbread for DROIDX on 2.3 – GingerBlur

Not a fan of the new blue MotorBlur that was introduced in the leaked Gingerbread?  How does having the stock black and green theme from real Android 2.3 sound?  We’re talking black menus, black menu bar, GB keyboard, etc.; the way it was supposed to look.  Thanks to brenneisec over at MDW, we have just that.

Download:  Alpha-1_2.zip [mirror]

Instructions:

1.  You have to be rooted and running Gingerbread on your DROIDX.
2.  Download the file from above and drop it on your SD card.
3.  Boot into recovery and MAKE A BACKUP.
4.  Mount System, then flash the file.
5.  Enjoy!

If you want to revert back to the blue theme, you really need to make a backup.

    any chance to get this for the Droid 2?

    It’s truly sad that people can’t even respect that not everyone is going to be pleased with something. If someone doesn’t like it, so what, that’s there choice. There’s no need for ever post to end up in a flame war!

  • luis

  • Welcomematt78

    I tried Booting in Recovery and it won’t do it. Has anyone here had the same problem? I have to remove my battery to get it to reboot back to GB. Anyone have any suggestions? Oh and I’m running rooted GB for the X. Thanks.

      u need bootstarp for d2

    • hater mchaterson

      you dont need bootstrap for D2. All you need to do is disable “USB Debugging” (settings/application/development). Droid X Bootstrap Recovery will work just fine after that

    Great job dude on producing this…I love having options and choice

    I really like it! Thank you!!!

  • spanishclash

    Nicely done, thank you! Prefer the stock theme =D

  • Risenequinox

    Kellex, would you happen to need the deodexed version of gingerbread for this? Might be helpful to know.

    • Anonymous

      Yes you do.

    • Tim242

      You have to have the deodexed version to install any theme…

      • Risenequinox

        i know that, but do the various other people who read this know… Just a tip

  • STiK

    This a new version from yesterday?

  • blakjakdavy

    It doesn’t say above…do you have to be deodexed for this to work? I’d assume you do.

      Yes

    : I must say that I find it extremely entertaining that we have so many critics, that aren’t artists, bashing the ones that are. If you don’t like the work, don’t use it. I’ve been an artist all my life and would do anything to be able to just port a theme. So while some of you stick your size 10 shoe in your size 12 mouth, I would love for you to bless us with your work. Please step up and show us what skills you have, besides bashing others.

  • The Observer

    I like the blue a lot better than the green, but the dark menus are better than the white ones.

    Kudos to the guy that made this theme, though.

  • http://twitter.com/BiGGiE_Q Biggie Quan

    I’m getting bootloop issues. I mounted system before installing. Anyone else getting this?

  • http://www.facebook.com/brenneisec Cameron Brenneise

    that wasnt directed towards you. every has their own style. but the people that are hating can kick off

  • Elduvall7

    Yes!! Thank you so much for doing this! I do not like the ugly blue crap of blur and much prefer the darker colors and stock gingerbread look. This is perfect…. speed boost from gingerbread and new blur while maintaining a nice look.

  • Teschall

    I’ve run about every ROM for the DX there is and there were always issues (random reboots, etc). I flashed the rooted GB leak and I must say I have been extremely pleased with the performance and look. I don’t see myself going away from this anytime soon.

  • Anonymous

    Must be deodexed!

  • http://www.facebook.com/brenneisec Cameron Brenneise

    this theme is a visual representation of STOCK GINGERBREAD. if you dont like it, i dont care. dont run it. that doesnt give you a right to bash on my work. you wouldnt want people talking shit about something you worked hard on. this is for the people that want the stock gingerbread look. if you want me to make something else for you, contact me on twitter @CamDroid and i might be able to do something for you. but if you dont like it then move on.

      I personally wasn’t bashing. Its cool that you got this done so quickly. Glad to have options.

      • http://www.facebook.com/brenneisec Cameron Brenneise

        i understand. your comment was respectful and opinionated. there are other comments (and i wont waste my time calling each person out) that were uncalled for. thats not what the android community is about. its about customization and helping each other

        • Rolo72

          +1 Sir. Thank you for your work. I myself may (or may not) even use it but because of people like you, there are options for all of us which suit our different tastes. I do have a question for you regarding this theme though. Is the “fat” trimmed off the the original GB within this theme, or is this truly just a theme? Thanks again for your hard work.

          • http://www.facebook.com/brenneisec Cameron Brenneise

            this is as of now just a theme. i am hoping to be trimming bloat in future updates

    • Tim242

      Thank you! This is exactly what I wanted. Your time is greatly appreciated : )

        Overreaction central up in here.

        If making something look like something else is art then plagiarists unite!

        I see 1 negative comment and the rest are simply saying that ginjablur is a refreshing switch, myself included.

      Anyone who would hate on this in favor of the stock blur has no credibility anyway

      mine keep on staying on the red eye logo keeps looping!!! anybody know what maybe the problem i took battery off and did it again but no luck!!! HELP

  • Uncle Paul

    Never thought I would say this but I like the gingerblur better.

  • Majidjabber

    tethering problems…any one?????

  • Firelight

    After running so many themes & ROMS (Liberty, Apex, SS) and now running the GB leak – I’m really quite satisfied with the running it as is … with LP+ on top.

    I’ve been a die-hard Blur-hater but I gotta say – the way they minimized it within the OS is really not so bad. Of course, I run none of the Blur widgets or Social app or Messaging Apps; K9, Handcent and Seesmic do better.

    BTW: I have OC’d my DX with GB for two days now and have not seen any real benefit – that’s how good this stuff is … as is.

  • Ghub1

    Is there away to get the gb keyboard separately? I like blur but hate the keyboard.

    • Tim242

      Gingerbread Keyboard is free in the market : )

      • http://twitter.com/Ghub1 Chris Ghubril

        No way! Did not know that.

        • Tim242

          I just installed the stock theme…it includes the keyboard. But yeah, it’s
          in the market as well.

  • iPhoneWinz

      If your iphone was so great, you wouldn’t be on a DROID blog. Enjoy your ugly grid of square icons.

      Ha ha ha! Right. Yet, you religiously follow a Droid blog……hmmmmm? I call BS…or April Fools considering what day it is!!!

      Id be cranky too if I my phone confined to an app drawer

    • Tim242

      What’s up with this rash of iturds trolling Android blogs? I’m guessing because Engadget is under new writers and isn’t posting flame war threads anymore.

    Slightly off topic, but has anyone gotten wireless tether to work on 2.3? Not the built in Verizon one. I don’t wanna risk that being added to my bill

            Ha! This is an awesome April Fools. “You haz?” It’s f-ing hilarious! I’m dying over here. How long can you keep it up without shooting yourself in the head before revealing you’re not a complete loser?

          • Anonymous

            phones that dont drop calls every other call (my best friend and girlfriend have them and drop calls me ALL THE TIME)… oh and our netflix app is in development and is almost ready but when we have it your phone still will drop calls. enjoy!

            P.S. you really come on an Android website just to talk trash? thats embarrassing. go talk to a shrink about why daddy didn’t love you or give you enough attention and let the adults talk.

          • Majidjabber

            which app you using for wifi tethering?

    • Firelight

      No working wifi tether here, either. Going to try USB tethering later to see if that works…

    • Anonymous

      The vzw one is confirmed free until may 30 I think. At least april 30

    • Iammebane

      my tether no longer works after gb… there apparently is a problem…. i looked on xda developers, and there is a patch, vut i still could not get it to work.. some people say that they have…im hoping someone addresses it soon…

  • 420Man

    Do you have to have the Deodexed version that P3 / TBH released to flash the theme?

    Don’t shoot the messneger, but I like the newgingablur.

    • droydhead

      I kind of agree. I think the themer did a great job porting it but the green notification bar is fugly.. I couldn’t believe it when it first came out.. I though it was just an early version.. Im shocked that its final.

      but i don’t like all of the white menus in the new gingerblur.. dark is better all around.

      • Eric

        yeah i agree with you. It looks like a 5 year old drew it. LOL

  • Anonymous

    I like the blue. Been running black bars and menus for the 5 or 6 months.

    Personally i am really digging gingerblur. it doesn’t suck compared to blur 2.0

  • Dshudson

    Hey DroidzFX, I beat you to “first” this one..
    Does this count as a “first” or not because I typed more than “first”
    On a side note: I dropped my TB last night.. which for me is kind of like popping my cherry, what I mean is, after the first drop all other drops really don’t matter.. Anybody with me on that?
    Oh.. and I never use any sort of screen protectors, covers ext.. Has a nice dent of the side.. kind of gives it some personality

    • fartbubbler

      doesn’t “count” as first?

      Are you guys keeping score or something?

      geez, that’s pathetic.

      • DroidzFX

        Your name is pathetic
