    Default UPDATED / FREE - [ONYXia] v1.4

    Supported devices: Bold 9700, Bold 9000, Tour 9630, Curve 8900
    Latest version: ONYXia v1.4

    If you're like me, you always come back to the stock Precision Zen theme, no matter how many times you try something new. Premium apps, no matter how fancy, just don't feel right. I've used the stock theme on a Bold 9000 for a year, so even when it comes to the icons, anything other than default is impossible for me to get used to! Personally, the stock theme is something I'll always call home, due to its simplicity and feel. These elements are what I've tried to incorporate in my theme ONYXia, a theme that makes you feel right at home, is simple, and adds just a bit more functionality to the homescreen.

    Features:

    - simple, yet professional-looking design
    - 12 main icons + 6 side icons for folders / option-related apps (look at the screenshot example to get an idea)
    - theme studio 5.0 transitions
    - hidden today
    - dedicated weather icon (place weather app in the first column of row four in the app screen aka. 19th slot)
    - launch QuickLaunch with the space key, and launch SMS And MMS with the dollar sign key
    - homescreen is wallpaper-friendly


    Homescreen





    Use Your Own Wallpaper





    Hidden Today





    Applications Screen





    Incoming Call





    Active Call





    Lock Screen




    (My font is BB Alpha Sans, size 7 in these screenshots)


    Change Log:

    v1.4
    - font size increased slightly
    - even more noticable focus overlays
    - added support for Bold 9000 devices

    v1.3
    - added the new transitions! gotta use them for yourself to really appreciate them
    - space button launches QuickLaunch
    - dollar sign ($) launches SMS And MMS
    - minor aesthetic tweaks

    v1.2
    - increased size of homescreen icons
    - re-did Incoming Call and Active Call screens
    - bottom dock is now rendered by theme, not wallpaper... this means the theme is wallpaper-friendly... that's right, works with ALL wallpapers (preferably darker ones because of the today items' font is white... if anyone wants this theme without a today screen, let me know)
    - homescreen icons are now animated on focus, this means no more getting lost!
    - weather icon now updates properly and instantly
    - font sizes increased slightly

    planned for future version:

    - add quicklaunch/sms hotkeys (space button and dollar sign) from homescreen
    - any other suggestions from you guys

    v1.1
    - re-arranged Active Call and Incoming Call screens
    - colour scheme now more consistent
    > changed focus icon on application screen from blue to grey
    > changed dialog boxes / lists, etc from blue to grey
    - made weather icon bigger
    - allow scrolling to calendar entries and weather app

    Thanks to mrtolles for providing me with my own repository for OTA links =)


    DOWNLOAD:

    Bold 9700/9650 / Tour 9630 / Curve 8900 (480 x 360): OS 4.7 | OS 5.0

    Bold 9000 (480 x 320): OS 4.6 | OS 5.0

    Don't forget to do a battery pull after installing. Feel free to leave suggestions or requests. If you like this theme, PLEASE let me know in the thread, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy ;D

    Important Update: This was my first ever theme and the time has come for me to move on. I'm am so glad and surprised to hear this is still a favourite theme to many people. However, I will no longer be taking requests for customizations. In order to show my appreciation for everyone's kind words and feedback, I feel I can make a contribution to the community by releasing the source files. This will include the theme builder file, composer file, and the image files. Hopefully they will be of some use to some of you, especially those who are just starting out. You may even customize them and post them online, all I ask is for some recognition and also a link to my website vince-the-prince.com!

    Regards, Vince

    Sorry I forgot to mention two things!

    1. This is for the 9700, but apparently should also work on the Curve 8900 and the Tour. (this is how you know I'm a theme newb, I forget to specify these important things)

    2. If I get good feedback, I will continue to mess around with theming.

    Sorry, I am not experienced enough with simulators and theming in general to honour that request. Maybe sometime down the road =)

    I don't know why it is laggy, there are no transitions or extra code really... maybe I should compress the background graphics to a smaller size?

    I believe you can compile this for OS 4.6. Not a lot of work but there is an option to do it! Please?

    I loaded it on my 8900. Nice work.... but.....

    - can't scroll to the calendar entries on the home screen
    - can't scroll to the weather app
    - colors aren't consistent throughout, such as the mail and SMS lists.

    Overall, well done. ESPECIALLY for a first stab.

    EDIT: I'm using the 5.0 OS on my 8900.

    I have been working on those exact problems for the past half hour, and it is almost ready. Then I just have to export them for both 5.0 AND 4.7 =)

    Stay tuned!

    Improvements are great. Well done. My only minor nit, is the font size. If it could be one size larger, I think it would help. Maybe I'm getting old.

    Great work.

    There's just no pleasing you Mark! Haha, I will take it into consideration for v1.2... no promises though. As for the weather bug people have been reporting, I did some searching on the forums and found a workaround. Expect v1.2 sometime this weekend, folks. And thanks for all the great support, suggestions and criticisms. Keep them coming =)

    I'm well pleased. No such thing as perfect, right.

    I'm still going to use it, it is a super theme. My eyes will adjust, and I can see it great with my glasses. What is the weather bug? I use BBWeather and I don't have any issues. I'll keep playing with this theme and let you know if I find anything else.

    BTW, since you're making another version...... a QuickLaunch hot key would be cool. Like the space bar. Another suggestion is to hot key SMS, you could use the $ key. Not complaints, just suggestions.

    I'm working on the next version with some nice improvements, the font size will be a bit bigger just for you hehehe. Also, QuickLaunch just got updated for 5.0 a few days ago so I will definitely have the space bar launch it, as well as the $ the SMS as I've noticed it's a nice trend going on lately. I just have to figure out how to do these things, nothing a bit of forum searching can't remedy. Expect this sometime on the weekend!
