Custom Theme Friday: Retro Droid For CM7 Theme Chooser

A few days ago I went on a hunt for a retro feel for my Nexus S. I stumbled on some pictures of good ‘ol Froyo, and thought to myself how that might look. I started searching the Market for a Froyo CM7 theme, but with no avail. I went to Twitter and asked my followers if they knew where to find one. Huge props to M1ghtySauc3 for finding this for me.

If you want to remember how Froyo looked (but not felt), then definitely check this ‘theme’ out. Sometimes, you have to relive the past to appreciate the present. “Bubble icons FTW.”

    I can’t even express how happy I am that the white notification bar days are gone.

    Wow, this takes me back.  It feels like only yesterday when I had froyo…oh wait, it was yesterday.  Today too now that I think of it.  Do you guys remember when Jrummy released total command? Those were the days.

    I was never really a fan of Froyo’s look. Then again I’m not that big a fan of stock Gingerbread’s look either. I almost always have themes on my phones. Stock Honeycomb looks good though.


    I dont like how the top corners are rounded off
