    Hi Yoda, it is a very nice theme however this particular forum is to be used when posting the finished product for public use. Instead please post in the Theme Builder's forum where you would most likely get greater feedback.

    But again brilliant so far and keep up the good work.

    Liking the looks of this theme, will this be a os 4 or 5 theme?.... Any thoughts about also doing the first two stargates SG1 and Atlantis..... Looking at this got me back into fixing up my Serenity theme, I stopped developing the os4 version thats already on the site since I upgraded to a willyboy os5 and should be putting up the better os5 version in about a month after I work out some of the bugs

    Cool thats all i wanted was another opinion, So i knew i was on the right track,

    is in os 4 at the min,
    (but if i knew how you could change it i would do it on 5 too)

    Am already doing a Atlantis one same idea (ISH) but having trouble with the shiel for the iris at the min thats why there is not one on here, Never looks as good as the iris

    SG1 not looked at yet but i will i would think.

    Should be finished over weekend,

    Got all the sybols of the gate as icons with the text below so you know what they are.

    Anything you think would look cool let me know and ill add it in a copy and post to you.

    Assuming you are using OS 4.6, that is normal and a bug in the OS.

    You'll need to download the os5 simulator off bb to test it on that... Whatever simulator you use will mean that its been designed for that os... Don't just rely on the simulator for testing cause that's what I did for my first one and it didn't turn out the best, you should always test the theme on your own bb for a couple of weeks before posting it to find the little bugs and if you need a os5 beta tester let me know or put a post in the forum for some testers. I should start learning how to work composer cause I done all my icons using adobe photoshop (I never bothered reading any howto's before I started) and I'm thinking or doing a more complicated theme soon... Here's a idea find the audio file of the stargate making a connection after the chevrons are dialed and make that the msg tone

    Just downloaded it for a look around.

    First thoughts (not sure if its just cause I'm using os5) but icon navigation could be a bit better, found it tricky getting around the icons on the homescreen because of the small writing and only being able to switch icons by going up and down. Marking do not create default link using one step in navigation history and show preview will help you with this.

    I would add in more chevron icons to the app screen and add a highlighted or modded version instead of using the standard highlighted icons and remove the sounds icon and put the application name banner on the homescreen in its place. Last thing I can think of is removing the name from each icon for a cleaner look.

    All in all this is quite a good theme

    Cool thanks for the input,
    Navigation was done on purpose so it was going around the stargate, But i can see this being anoying

    (sounds) do you mean the profiles Icon?

    I looked at taking away the text from the icons but thought i would make it hard to figure out what apps they were,

    How about having the symbol as the main icon and the focus icon the ones with the text?

    Will add app banner name and have two ota links for people that feel the same

    Much easier to navigate now and the homescreen retains the feel of the theme with the new focus icons
