Here’s my second take on doing a Googlish homescreen. This time I tried to incorporate some more colors into the wallpaper.

Thanks to xniikk for the weather icons.
Hope you like it :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @flwngmedia Do you got Photoshop? Try removing the black borders at the bottom and top and see if it works.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/UberSlackr UberSlackr

    Well Done. Clean, yet Elegant. Diggin it a lot. (Leaf is kinda odd though)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/emildk11 emildk11

    clean and simple, yet beautiful done :)

    What are you using as search widget near the top, looks like a tablet search widget but how do you enable it?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/phoenixwave phoenixwave

    I wanted to commend you on not only your amazing tutorial in your Dropbox file but also your willingness to share everything you’ve done for this screen.

    It’s really well done. Great job and thanks!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @UberSlackr I like leaves :D

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @emildk11 Looks very nice and functional. On the design side maybe use the same icon theme for all apps

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @semati Thanks!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @ZeDDiE They are shortcuts for Google Search and Nova Settings.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @phoenixwave Thanks man, really appreciate it. Well I like open source and I use alot of stuff for free from other people so I don’t have the morals to charge you for any money, since it’s just a picture in Photoshop :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Mr_Howard Mr_Howard

    Thanks for sharing. I edited it to work with the Galaxy S3 w/ GoLauncher. Great work!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Mr_Howard Thanks! Nice job getting it fit on the S3, it’s pretty tricky at times

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/obibi obibi

    Beautiful and easy to use with your great and simple tutorial. Thank you very much. This is my new desktop and I fucking love it !

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @obibi No fucking problem :D Glad to help!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/osully osully

    Beautiful as the v1. Curious as to why you didn’t include the time and date on this one, though.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/SuperChristian SuperChristian

    I love your screens man, I’m currently using this one on my S2, it’s awesome, I really hope you will continue your great work (:
    And maybe you wanna check out my version (;

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @osully Time I can see in the status bar and date on Lockscreen and Notification drawer :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @SuperChristian Great work on fitting it on the S2 :D Looked freaking awesome!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/emildk11 emildk11

    Yea, im working on getting the same icons :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Daimen97 Daimen97

    Works great on my Samsung Galaxy Note! It is awesome!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Daimen97 Nice to hear! Thanks :D

    @Howard Can you please provide the Galaxy s3 modified .psd file? This screen made my sign up for this site. But I have an s3 and my photoshop skills are not the best. Thank you.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/lp93 lp93

    Just did it on my s3 and i love it, I had to crop the picture a bit so i cant see the social and u cause i had to crop them out to make it fit my screen, and it still looks good, good work once again :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @lp93 Thanks :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/clinch89 clinch89

    First of all let me say thanks for your excellent creation! I have one question though, is there a way i can get rid of the leaves and use a custom image? I’m guessing it will require Photoshop and a PSD of the background image..let me know how cause leaves aren’t that dear to me that i need to see them daily! Thanks in advance!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @clinch89 Yeah it will require Photoshop. If you don’t have it just send a email to fluff3n@gmail with your desired picture and I can help you.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/sun86 sun86

    excelent dude… but how to make the background wallpaper as a singel screen?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/lilcoleslaw lilcoleslaw

    Too bad the lock screen will be that same image and you’ll have to use widget locker which on jelly bean sucks

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/clinch89 clinch89

    @lilcoleslaw Some custom ROMS gives u the ability to change the lockscreen independently from the homescreen

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/clinch89 clinch89

    @fluffen Emailed u!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/2uk3y 2uk3y

    thanks @fluffen for this great skin, i make some height adjustment for my S3 coz its higher than this. and i make inverted color so its dark, coz i like dark :)
    btw here my screen mycolorscreen.com/2013/03/04/r3v3t3d/

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/clinch89 clinch89

    @fluffen After watching some photoshop tutorials and following the notes on @2UK3y’s PSD file, i finally figured it out last night. You can discard the email. Thanks again.

    You absolute legend. Set it up flawlessly on my GNex, looks mindblowing! The nickname “fluffen” reminds me of a Counter-Strike player. Plus you being Swedish, there’s a very high chance you are. Are you?

    EDIT: Here’s a screen:

    I would love to get a gmail dock icon, I tried making my own but I don’t like it.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/cjohnson481 cjohnson481

    trying on my galaxy nexus and the wall paper is just a little too big, at 768×1280, so cuts off the buffered border. any suggestions on getting the perfect fit? trying to set using nova wallpaper and just cuts off that little extra.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/zuperpailon zuperpailon

    Can someone post a background for the S3 please??

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @cjohnson481 Have you tried resize it in some kind of program?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @jak3z Do you got a nexus 4? I can make one that fits the N4 perfectly

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/zuperpailon zuperpailon

    @fluffen Could you make one that fits the galaxy s3?? btw your theme is awesome!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/jak3z jak3z

    @fluffen Yes I got a nexus 4 :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @jak3z Re-download the pack again, added a Mail icon :) Hope it looks good

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @zuperpailon Sorry man, don’t got any S3 to test it on or time for that matter. Look through these comments, I think someone had a S3 and made it :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @Mr_Howard What grid size did you use? And did you use the original background without editing and fitted it in a 720×1280 frame?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/jak3z jak3z

    @fluffen Looks good! Thanks

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Orkane89 Orkane89

    This is brilliant! will be chucking this onto my s2 today! Noticed alot of people asking about sizes to fit different handsets… For those with photoshop heres a quick fix. create a new file the same dimensions as your handset (the S2 being 480 x 800 @217dpi) then drag the Holo UI rev .2 screen into it and resize to fit… Making sure you have the right DPI for your phone to ensure you get the best pixel density so it looks smooth and crisp.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/cjohnson481 cjohnson481

    @fluffen tried with crop wallpaper and it looks all jacked up. confused since i am used a galaxy nexus like you, and have nova launcher prime and following the steps exactly.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Major Major

    Wicked theme!!! On My Nexus 4 the background fits perfect but are you sure your nova grid is 6x7as the main app icons don’t seem to align?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/zuperpailon zuperpailon

    @fluffen thanks anyway man! Keep up the good work

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/phuongtv88 phuongtv88

    This is my edit wallpaper to fit Galaxy nexus. Everything eles you gúy just need to follow an awsome Christian Svensson’s guide :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @phuongtv88 THanks for helping everybody out! Respect for sharing :D

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Major It should yes. Do you got width margin set to Large?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/gamer228 gamer228

    Everthing fits fine on a Note II with a desktop grid of 11 x 7. Except the Cloud and clock. I had to re-align those manually with Zooper/UCCW which is pretty easy to do.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @cjohnson481 I don’t got a Galaxy Nexus

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @gamer228 Nice job :)

    Can i get the wallpaper for note 2.
    Please..please help me out…

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/neonoafs neonoafs

    @niklasvii
    Nice!!! You should remove the shadow of the bottom and top ^_^

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @psycomagic You could still use the stock icons, but fitting the wallpaper might be a bummer.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @ornberg Looks awesome! :D

    Hi, i want try to try this setup on my Galaxy Nexus, but i don’t have Photoshop, unfortunately. i saw the link that phuongtv88 posted before, but that file is no longer available. can someone who has the file, or was able to make it work on a Galaxy Nexus help me? even a resized screen from one of you Photoshop Gurus would do.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/neonoafs neonoafs

    @fluffen Hey Fluffen, can you tell me how to change the leaf picture to a picture of my choice? I’m not very good at photoshop, so i don’t know how i’d do it…

    UPDATE: I figured out how to change the image! and it looks nice! But the problem is… I have my phone set up to where I don’t have a nav bar or the notification bar… is there any way to make it fit?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/bo55 bo55

    @phuongtv88 If you could resize those to the original nexus 4 size that would be amazing!!!!! I don’t even have Photoshop so I’m not gonna even attempt it lol

    @fluffen Hey Christian, I was wondering if you could tell me how to make one for a Nexus 4 that doesn’t have a nav bar or a notification bar….

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @mrjoeltan Do you got Photoshop? I made a .psd that I’ve tested without any status bar and nav bar https://dl.dropbox.com/u/29210884/Holo_UI_rev2_expanded.psd works great with PIE for example. Use the regular icons i provided, and change the Rows to 7. :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Lunaspice Lunaspice

    Great work mate! I was wondering though… when I add the UCCW-widget (clock, date, name etc) and want to edit the text how do I do that? Coz when I click on the widget when its added onto the screen nothing happens and when I hold long the “delete” and “resize”-options comes up. Can you help? Thanks!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Lunaspice Just press the widget once, then select the “Static Text” object and edit it :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Lunaspice Lunaspice

    When I press it nothing happens whatsoever… hrm. Sjukt störigt!

    EDIT: Reinstalled UCCW and now it works like a charm. :D

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Lunaspice Gött gött!

    @fluffen Got it to work, and it looks awesome! So glad I can use this without the notif bar and nav bar in ParanoidAndroid. Thanks alot fluffen. (:

    Hey, just found this and I’d really like to adapt this with some tweaks. Problem is,that I only have PS Elements at the moment and can’t open the folders in the .psd’s. If you could manage to upload the psds with single layers and without folders I’d be very thankful. Cheers and amazing work =)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Hamduden Hamduden

    Yeah! Got it working perfectly! Started out by putting the icons onto the wallpaper in GIMP 2, because that was the method you used on version 1 of HoloUI.. Then I realized you’ve made it possible to just change the icon in your launcher, which is PERFECT!

    So this is what it ended up like: http://i.imgur.com/RhMo2T9.png
    I removed the photo, since it was a bit weird on HoloUI-1, and added some info about my phone. Secondly, I removed that “Start” in the top, since I felt it didn’t really make sense for me. Thirdly, I removed the launcher settings in top right – I use “swipe two fingers up” to open it instead. And then finally, of course, I have changed the logo’s colors to suit the dark wallpaper! EDIT: And yeah, added a folder icon in the right side, to have more apps on the homescreen like ver.1.

    Thanks a lot for a great UI! Think I’m gonna have this for a very long time (unless you make a rev.3 soon, hah).

    Keep up the good work.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Hamduden Looks awesome man, a perfect fit ;) Glad it worked out

    Hey, your home screen is so nice.
    I’m sorry to boring you, but I have few question…
    I don’t understand how change the round image…and the wallpaper behind.
    Did u change these on Photoshop?

    Because I have just photofiltre, and I don’t speak as well English so it’s little bit hard for me to understand everything when u explain smth.

    Btw, thx u if u want answer me.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @MarieRZ Yes it is changed in Photoshop. Might work in GIMP too (GIMP is a free program that is similar to PS)

    PS: I’d prefer to use GIMP

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Joshonator83 Joshonator83

    @fluffen Amazing work! This theme has become my favorite to date! I do have a few questions, and I hate to sound like a broken record: 1. I followed your every instruction to the letter (I have a Nexus 4) but a 6×7 grid doesn’t align the icons properly. I have actually reversed it with a 7X6 grid and found this to be more suitable. Have I done anything wrong/overlooked here? The icons look more in tune but still do not fit the way yours does. Will I have to tinker with PS or GIMP? Also, 2. is there an easy way to change the picture of the leaf if desired? I’m sure you’ve got other things going on, but any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    UPDATE: I used GIMP to change the leaf image, so I’m cool with that, lol. But I would love advice on the grid/alignment so they fit like yours. Thank you!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Kakito Thanks!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/fluffen fluffen

    @Joshonator83 What size do you got on the icons? I used 90% and it aligned perfectly. Follow the instructions again and make sure you got everything right :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/klavergne@XDA klavergne
