    How did you get the notification side like that, or is it just 2 different wallpapers? does the transition actually look realistic?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @xXxG0dzRAgexXx
    Oh no, it’s just one wallpaper. And yeah, the animation looks really good :-)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/xXxG0dzRAgexXx xXxG0dzRAgexXx

    @ornberg
    oh nice, so its like a panoramic wallpaper? Is the panoramic wallpaper a feature of the S3, or launcher? I know when i get my HTC One, I want to do a setup like this but it doesn’t allow Pano wallpapers, so im worried this set up wont work unless its 2 wallpapers, which wouldn’t look good.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/shrapner shrapner

    Maybe a noob question but what do I do with these .uccw files? I can’t figure out how to open them in uccw

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @shrapner
    I will write down a tutorial for this one today, stay tuned.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/adunaph3l adunaph3l

    Same here, uccw can’t open them because it’s not a .uzip file, so how can we use them ? :(

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @adunaph3l Problem fixed. Correct files and instructions in the description.
    Good Luck! :-)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/adunaph3l adunaph3l

    Thanks for your quickness, but I still got problems with some of the .uzip. When I put them in place, for example the weather 3*1, it gave me a white square, but not the weather widget expected :(
    EDIT : my bad, open it in UCCW, it works, then reopen on the screen, and work …. don’t know why …
    Thanks a lot anyway !!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @adunaph3l Glad to hear it works :-)
    Thank YOU!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Philosopherism Philosopherism

    This is very, very, very good! Also, the tutorial is really nice. :)

    this is not working on a nexus 7, is it not made to?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/mrjoeltan mrjoeltan

    @ornberg I love how you made one without a spot for notification bar or the nav bar. I’m a noob at PS, so how would I resize this for the N4? I know theres already a version for the N4, but I don’t like having the nav bar or the notification bar.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    *Update* Added the files to use this either with or without the notification bar.

    @radikal Im sorry , this screen is fitted for the SGS3 :-/

    @mrjoeltan The esiest way would be to use the “Holo Ui rev.2″ since its made for the Nexus 4. But if you remove the notification bar you still have to edit the uccw skins, because they’ll be a bit out of place. I don’t have that device so im sorry, i can’t help you here :-/

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Jabberwocky Jabberwocky

    What is the desktop grid supposed to be?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @Jabberwocky 12×7
    All the info you need are in the instructions. Good luck! :-)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/MaGiC69 MaGiC69

    omberg amazing theme…but i’ve problem to positioning uccw and icons on my S3. You which rom/dpi use on your s3?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @MaGiC69 i use stock for this one.
    As you may have noticed, I’ve put up files to use with or without the notification bar. Are you sure you used the correct files?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Puffin617 Puffin617

    This is awesome!!!!

    Just one question – is it possible to have a second side panel on the right hand side as well? I’ve tried with 3 screens but the wallpaper does not pan all the way to either side… I’d like to put my agenda widget on the one side and my apps on the other side….

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @Puffin617 Well, to make a three screen version of this you have to add another screen,, and that’ll ruin the square shape of the wallpaper, Besides that you have to re-arrange all the uccw-widgets.
    Not a bad ideá with a 3-screen version though :-)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/Puffin617 Puffin617

    The problem with the 3 screen version is that I can’t find any wallpaper app that will scroll a wallpaper from edge to edge irrespective of the amount of homescreens.

    Thanx for the reply :) Great Homescreen…

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/MaGiC69 MaGiC69

    @ornberg

    Yes i’ve used both version but i continue have problem with positioning uccw skin !!!
    This might be caused by lcd density ??? My rom have 360dpi.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @MaGiC69 I haven’t changed dpi so it’s set on default. I believe it’s 320 on the SGS3 (could be wrong).
    If nothing else works, you could always manually re-position from within the the uccw app ;-)

    @ornberg

    ok omberg thank for the hints !!!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/danthepan124 danthepan124

    How can I do this with a Nexus 4, it has a navigation bar :( I really want to use this

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ManUtd07 ManUtd07

    I know this isn’t necessarily the space to ask this question but seeing as I’d like to utilize this theme, does anyone know how to get this wallpaper to work across two screens on Apex? As I’m sure you all know, the multi wallpaper crops the image on Apex. If there is no way (other than Multipicture Live Wallpaper) that’s fine but just wondering. Maybe it’s an image size issue?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/napes22 napes22

    @danthepan124 I have the same issue as danthepan. The Nexus 4 and Galaxy Nexus have the wallpaper extend below the navigation bar. So what happens is that the dock bar isn’t visible, because it’s under the Nav bar. For the Galaxy Nexus, you’d have to extend the bottom of the wallpaper by 96 pixels, but then it doesn’t fit properly. Anyone figure this out?

    Thanks so much! Everything looks great. I have a few questions though. Sorry if I’ve overlooked something(s)…

    1. I can’t find a weather3*1 for full screen, and the other 3*1 only shows up as a white block after repeated tries.
    2. The unread mail count won’t show up in the notifications. All I get is —
    3. How do you set the avatar pic?

    This is my first attempt with UCCW. Everything else is great though

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @76less 1. Import a 3×3 uccw widget and choose “Now Weather full”, resize if needed.

    2. To get the unread mail count, go into Uccw -> open “Missed Gmail Full” -> Select object Gmail 1 -> Swipe to “Controls #5″ -> Choose your account.

    3. Open “Now Full.psd” in Photoshop -> Open the folder “Color Image” -> Hold down CTRL and click on the picture on the “Replace with Avatar”-layer -> Open the image you want to import and select and copy that image -> Go back to “Now Full” and click Edit->Paste Special->Paste Into -> Click CTRL+T and resize. Done ;-)

    Thanks so much!

    Will this be updated or how will you go about adapting this to the upcoming phones with 1080p screens?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/shinyazz52 shinyazz52

    @ornberg Is there any chance you could make a lock screen for widget locker to go with this fantastic home screen ? Awesome job !

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @NateB Sry, I don’t have any plans adapting this one atm, maybe later.
    @shinyazz52 Yeah i had some thoughts on doing a widget locker-theme to go with this. Let’s see if my schedule allows it next week :-)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/shinyazz52 shinyazz52

    Fantastic ! Thanks man .

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/karanalmighty karanalmighty

    For some reason, Apex (and Nova) crops the wallpaper and I just can’t seem to get this to work on my GS3. Please help.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @karanalmighty Strange…
    I’ve tried all kinds of combinations now, applying the wallpaper using “Quickpic”, “stock gallery” and through Nova, all work.
    Have you enabled the option under Scroll->Wallpaper Scrolling->Force Scrolling.?
    I’m not sure how that will affect the cropping issue but that’s the only thing I can think of

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/karanalmighty karanalmighty

    @ornberg Yes, I tried Force Scrolling as well, even with that, the wallpaper ends up being too “tall” and gets cut off from the top and bottom.
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/q6zgy415net4yyq/2013-03-19%2021.16.36.png
    As you can see in this picture, it won’t let me select the whole wallpaper no matter what I do.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/MittRomney MittRomney

    On my GS3 it says “cant open file”

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/karanalmighty karanalmighty

    @ornberg Does it have anything to do with the fact that I’m running Cyanogen Mod 10, and not the stock Touchwiz rom?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/canii canii

    Hi there, thanks for your work! It’s amazing :) I just have one question: How do I get the UCCW Widget on the left side (notification area) for current temperature to work? It only shows the letters CT :/

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    Perhaps you have to manually choose your location in the settings.
    Open the UCCW app and disable hot spots. Then click on the weather widget and select “Current Temperature”. Click menu->settings and there choose the settings you want. That should do it.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @karanalmighty Yeah, that would be my guess

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/YOYOYOYO YOYOYOYO

    @ornberg This theme looks awesome!!!
    I did a little change and i want to upload it.
    Do i have your permission?
    (I will give credits and the link to this theme)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @YOYOYOYO Of course :-)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/YOYOYOYO YOYOYOYO

    @ornberg Thank you : )
    I will upload it today or next week ( :

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/shag95 shag95

    Hi, this screen is amazing, but i’ve got a problem on my galaxy s3. in the instruction i read “no re-sizeing needed”, but when i choose the wallpaper it doesn’t fit..how can i do?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/YOYOYOYO YOYOYOYO

    @ornberg BTW How do i upload a screen?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/YOYOYOYO YOYOYOYO

    @ornberg
    I uploaded the screen and it will be my pleasure if you will comment in it’s page. :)

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    @shag95 Use the wallpaper that’s provided with the rest of the files, not the wallpaper that was just a single file on my page.
    I should’ve removed that when i uploaded all the files, since it’s only for “with notificationbar”. Sorry about that

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/shag95 shag95

    @ornberg
    I used the wallpaper that’s provided with the rest of the files, but nova still tries to crop it.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/YOYOYOYO YOYOYOYO

    @ornberg
    When i import the “now weather” it’s show me only a white rectangle… how to fix it?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/ornberg ornberg

    Perhaps you have to manually choose your location in the settings.Open the UCCW app and disable hot spots. Then click on the weather widget and select “Now Weather”. Click menu->settings and from there enter location and the settings you want. That should do it.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/YOYOYOYO YOYOYOYO

    @ornberg
    Now it’s OK… But i have another problem. When I’m trying to import the “missed call”, it’s show me again a white rectangle… what to do?

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/shag95 shag95

    I’m afraid i have to give up :( I can’t fix the “wallpaper problem”!

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/canii canii

    @ornberg I did exactly as you said but the problem still exists ;/ The UCCW widget shows the letters “CT” instead of the current temperature.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/phongpan355@XDA phongpan355

    @radikal This IS FOR Samsung Galaxy S3, Note 2, S4, and some specific devices that have the screen resolution as 1280×720. Other devices, such as Nexus devices, won’t work.

  • http://mycolorscreen.com/cjstein94@XDA cjstein94

    Is there a dark theme for this?

    The googlesara.zip file no longer available on dropbox. Anyone have the file somewhere?
