I'm going to use this thread to manage two themes (both I and II), Please specify which theme your commenting on or asking about.

So I created this theme for myself, but figured I'd post it just in-case anyone else was interested. It's very simple and doesn't change your homepage background / any icons / or boot themes... I'll leave you to pick and choose those.

Black theme (with texture) which modifies:
- Phone App
- Photo App
- Browser App
- Music App
- Video App
- Calculator App
- Lock Screen
- Screen Padlock
- Messaging App * only version II (see post 92 & 99)


As always remove any theme prior to using mine, and it is also suggested to remove themes before updating to a new version of WebOS!

The theme is now live over at PreThemer.com and its feed. I suggest downloading with Preware (click available themes and search for 'Simple Black Theme w/ Texture').

- The reason I suggest Preware: is that when I release an update you will be aware of it via the 'Package Updates' section of the app.
- As an alternative you could always download the .zip from PreThemer.com and install via WebOS Quick Install.

Original: Current Version: 0.894 - (Compatible with WebOS 1.4.5.1)
Version II: Current Version: 0.86- (Compatible with WebOS 1.4.5.1)
- Comments welcomed (good/bad).
Version Logs:

Simple Black Theme w/ Texture:
- v 0.04: Initial release
- v. 0.6: added calculator app & screenlock app
- v. 0.61 fixed calculator bug 10/4
- v. 0.7 changed lock screen padlock (let me know if you hate it) 10/7

Lastly, thanks to Jason for the theme builder!

Done and done.. its on Precentral's feed (which is currently down b/c many themes are not compatible with 1.2.0) so once they re-enable it, you will be able to install via preware

Considering you have a very similar theme then it should look 'vaguely familiar.' I used your theme for a day or so and was pleased, however, I personally thought it was too dark so I made my own thanks for the inspiration!

When Precentral turns its feed back on it will be available via Preware.

- In the mean time you can use the latest version of WebOS Quick Install (which says is not compatible for 1.2.0) to install it.

- Download the zip, hit 'tools', hit 'themer' and choose the zip file. (Thats how I installed)
- However don't apply any tweaks as those are not ready yet.

I haven't tried it yet but in his post:

"Edit: Its in the feed (here), but the feed isn't turned on yet so the theme is not available via Preware... It will be as soon as PreCentral.net turns the feed back on.

Current Version: 0.04 - (created for WebOS 1.2.0)"

and file is posted

- The theme was created for 1.2.0

- You can download the .zip file now (link is in the first post). After doing that you can download WebOS Quick Installer (link also in first post). Then you can install by opening WebOS Quick Installer and clicking 'tools' then 'themer' then selecting the .zip you downloaded.

- If you do not want to go through all those steps then you must wait until PreCentral.net theme feed is available then install via Preware (the date for this is TBA... this is not within my control).

By far the best theme for the Pre. I just put it on my phone and it looks incredibly sleek. It's nice to see that at least someone knows what he/she is doing and not cluttering up the theme gallery with tacky submissions. Great work, MLJones8.

Basically, what sleepingrobotz said. Awesome theme, though I'd like to see a darker screen (maybe not black) for the contacts and maybe messaging, too.

- Do you think all screens should be darker?

- I'd like to change the messaging application; however, I can't find two colors that go together any better than the ones Palm picked... Perhaps you could suggest some?? (I've tried many, honestly though I think Palm did a fantastic job in this area)

Glad you enjoy it (:
----------------------------------------------------------------

- I have another version ready to upload, however the the only change is to the 'Pin Lock Screen.' Which I can only assume only a handful of people use. So I'm not going to rush it...

Off topic:
- I appreciate all constructive criticism; whether I decide to implement the ideas or not... So keep the ideas coming

Yes I did... it reminded me of a black and white television... basically it wasn't for me (and I doubt the majority of people would want their Pre to look like that).
