    I made this theme for myself, but I am sharing it with you all, and I hope you like it

    This is a minimal theme and has a very bare homescreen, lots of shortcuts, and NO transitions = very very fast navigation between homescreen and app screen, and in and out of apps is very fast.

    The user sets the homescreen wallpaper, the meters all have colour (from green to red as meters reduce)

    I have to give credit to wu-wei's leebo theme, that inspired this, and for all the guys who edited up the 6.1 icons and made them available for everyone.

    HOME SCREEN SHORTCUTS (on top of the regular BB keyboard shortcuts)

    universal search - s
    manage connections - y
    text messages - $
    social feeds - e
    QuickLauch - spacebar
    Facebook - f
    UberSocial - x
    File Manager - i
    Profiles - 0
    Opera Mini 6 - r
    Native Clock app - z
    *g* is empty for google talk

    Let me know what you think
    And if you like it, please click the 'thanks'

    NOTE: when the BB symbol is on the top banner your data is thru your carrier, when the BB symbol is on the bottom banner your data is thru wifi

    **fixed the alarm clock on homescreen and app menu screen, used the 6.1 clock icon

    Txs for a nice theme!
    My 2c though:
    - when an alarm is set, it shows on notification bar in menu, but not on the home screen (and BTW: any chance of changing the icon into resized clock icon from OS6.1?).
    - you hot-linked the signal bars with network settings - which is perfect for me, but you can't notice when it is selected

    And just something very subjective: I'd love the notifications bar not being 100% black, but let's say 70%, leaving some opacity

    But great theme nevertheless!

    Whoops, I guess I missed the alarm clock icon on the homescreen, I was trying to keep it as clean as possible...

    Theme builder automatically links the signal bars with network settings, I really like the solid banner, so if you look careful when you toggle side to side on the home screen you'll see the profile icon light up just barely when it's selected. When it's not selected your on network settings.

    I can soften up the banner bars for you, I tried it and didn't really care for it myself.

    This theme might possibly tempt me to give OS6 another try.

    Great theme !
    Nice and clean. I really like the profile notifier on the homescreen.
    Also the shortcuts suit my needs just fine.

    Two small remarks though.
    I'm not really fond of the coloring of the battery and signal meters. To me that makes it a bit less 'classy'.
    Also the clock would be nicer (to me that is) if it was a slightly bigger font.
    Both are no deal breakers though !

    Plain to see, like you said, you got the inspiration from the Leebo theme.
    A job well done !!

    This theme is great, but would you be able to make this version of the theme with regular OS6 icons? Thanks.

    The gmail icon, like the hotmail icon (i believe) are actually pushed to your device thru service books and over-write the default theme email icon...

    I looooove simple and wallpaper friendly themes..
    And I guess a lot of people out there has the same simple preference like me. Thank you!!

    But if it's not too much to ask, I would love to see the combination theme you did for PiotrJot and FRanatic
    To see opacity on the notifications bar, and just a 'classic' (no color) on signal n batery bar.

    Great job!!

    Any way you could throw in a weather slot in place of the profile icon? Very sweet theme though
