    @Arabology Thanks!

    I didn’t think the original could get any better :-P
    Great job…! My only suggestion would be to clean up the edges so that they sit flush with the sides of the screen.
    Maybe its an issue with the screenshots or phone template, but the elements aren’t edge-to-edge. It’s the only thing that detracts from the beauty of your variation.

    @mathewrice Thank you. I know what mean, and trust me, I already tried to do that but this was the closest I could get it to the edge :(

  5. Posted 2012/09/11 at 2:51 am | Permalink

    @mathewrice FYI I was able to clean up the edges by adding a black line to each side of the wallpaper, and I gotta say it looks a thousand times better :)

    @theo1986 thanks. Here’s the wall:
    Edit: Removed link because it wasn’t working. Give me your email and I’ll send you the wall.
    You can download the uccw files from the link a gave in the description, and edit them to match the wallpaper, like change the background to black at 40% alpha, and shape 1 also to black to about 25% alpha.

    How do you do to make only the middle move ?

    @spickett123 You’re very welcome!

    @Diablofx Check the link in the description. That’s where you’ll find all the info about this theme :)

    I saw the link, but how to “use UCCW as background of widgets” ? that’s my only problem :s, I see how to put a wallpaper with images of widget, but not how to make it work as a button

  26. Posted 2012/09/11 at 9:37 pm | Permalink

    @Diablofx In apex launcher pro there’s an option to allow widgets to overlap. Once you turn this setting on, place the uccw background first, then place the widget you want on top (just resize the widget and make it overlap the uccw background).

  27. Posted 2012/09/11 at 10:00 pm | Permalink

    in fact, what’s the uccw background ? a screenshot of my wallpaper with the top and the bottom widget ?, i think i missunderstood something :x, ’cause i placed my wallpaper, put widget resized on it, but when i swap, top and bottom widget swap with middle widget

  28. Posted 2012/09/11 at 10:33 pm | Permalink

    @Diablofx The uccw skins (the background of the widgets) are found in the link that I gave in the description, and also more details about this theme. Those go in the middle and they’re the ones you see move when you go between screens. On the top and the bottom you use desktop visualizer with invisible icons so you don’t see them move when you go between screens.

  29. Posted 2012/09/11 at 10:40 pm | Permalink

    Ahh Thanks a lot, that was the desktop visualizer thing that i missed !

  30. Posted 2012/09/11 at 11:39 pm | Permalink

    @Jobe1785 Have you .psd data? I would like set a custom background. thanks

  31. Posted 2012/09/12 at 12:04 am | Permalink

    @6_lukas_6 Sorry, no psd, but here’s what I did. Take a pain screen (no widgets, no apps) and set the desired wallpaper for your background. Then, use the “email browser” uccw skin from Alex T (in the link I provided in the description), and place one on top and one on the bottom of the screen. Then, edit them according to what you want (in my case camera and gallery on top and phone and sms at the bottom) by changing the static text and the icons. Once you have done that, take a screenshot of that, and use the screenshot as your wallpaper :)
    Don’t forget to remove the uccw skins at the bottom and top of your screen and replace them with invisible icons (using desktop visualizer). I hope I was clear enough.

    I am loving the modification to the original. Would you be willing to share your semi transparent uzip files?

  33. Posted 2012/09/12 at 9:43 am | Permalink

    @AChen Sorry, I already changed my set up and I don’t keep my uzip files. But they’re the same as the originals, just set the background to black with 40 alpha (or transparency) and also change shape 1 to black with alpha at about 25%.

  34. Posted 2012/09/12 at 12:02 pm | Permalink

    @Jobe1785, what icons did you use for phone and calendar?

  35. Posted 2012/09/12 at 7:50 pm | Permalink

    @jobe1785 This is absolutely amazing!! any chance of sharing this setup?

    Can you tell me what’s your fonts

  38. Posted 2012/09/12 at 10:26 pm | Permalink

    @TheManFromUNCLE Give me your email and I’ll send you the wallpaper, then, go to the link I gave in the description to download the uzip files, and follow the directions I gave in previous comments here.

  39. Posted 2012/09/12 at 10:27 pm | Permalink

    @qmgxxjf Go to the link in the description, where Alex T shared the link to the icons in one of the comments.

    @qmgxxjf The font is roboto thin

    I have a problem, because when I have this 2 widgets on desktop there is a huge free space between them. How can I remove this? Here’s a screenshot:

  42. Posted 2012/09/13 at 1:49 am | Permalink

    @pelkas Did you set your grid to 8×7? And what phone are you using? Because this was made to fit the galaxy nexus.

  43. Posted 2012/09/13 at 1:56 am | Permalink

    Yes I’ve set grid to 8×7. My phone is galaxy gio which has very small screen, but I thought that I could make my own theme. I was only wondering how can I remove this space between them if it possible on my phone. Because widgets starts in a half of grid and ends in a half too, so that makes this problem. Maybe I have some margins but I don’t know.

  44. Posted 2012/09/13 at 2:09 am | Permalink

    @pelkas Maybe, I don’t know. All I know is that other people who don’t have a galaxy nexus couldn’t get it to fit right either because everything is sized to fit precisely on the nexus. Sorry I can’t be of any more help.
