    I decided to try and program my own theme, having a few issues but finally got one to work. The idea is based off of the WinBerry Ultimate theme for the start menu. Love that theme but wanted a few more buttons so I decided to create my own, this theme has 11 application buttons based on personal preference and 9 stationary unchangable buttons via start menu and calendar and clock. This is my first theme so please be easy of the criticism. Your comments and suggestions are welcome and well be considered for future updates!!!

    Here is the OTA link
    Windows 11 Theme - Click Here

    Name: WINDOWS
    Device: Bold 9700

    Version: 1.10
    Known Errors: 3 focus Items not hiding upon start, not sure why, they were once. Easy fix, simply run cursor over icons once!
    Fixes: None

    Version: 1.11
    Known Errors: None
    Fixes: Fixed focus items not hiding upon start!

    Version: 1.12
    Known Errors: None
    Fixes: Removed power button to allow theme to work with new operating version 5.0.0.442

    Version: 1.20
    Known Errors: None
    Fixes: Changed font style and size to match Windows 7 Aero default, made start button smaller to match

    Version: 1.21
    Known Errors: Start button stays hilited upon install until cursor does mouseover
    Fixes: Changed icons to better suit Windows 7 Aero default, made start button glow like Windows 7

    Version: 1.30
    Known Errors: Start button stays hilited upon install until cursor does mouseover
    Updates: Added 2nd button in upper left corner similar to weather button on right side. Seperated Calendar & Date buttons.
    Fixes: Extended length of today area and added 5th event

    Version: 1.31
    Known Errors: Start button stays hilited upon install until cursor does mouseover
    Fixes: Fixed typo error with application slots

    Screenshots:






    Hope some of you enjoy, cheers!!!

    Unfortantly this theme is only compatiable with OS version 5.0, I designed it for the Bold 9700. I know the curve does not yet support version 5.0, sorry! Not sure if this is the problem, anyone else having any issues???

    I know nothing about theme making, but if you can, a dedicated weather slot across from the clock would be perfect.

    Same happened with me. Also the icons were faded and blurred to the point you had to roll over them to see what they were. The only icons that were "normal" were the ones that are ATT bloatware. This is unusable as is. I had to do a battery pull. When the same problems occurred on reload I deleted it.

    Have you been able to try to add a dedicated weather app slot?

    I've updated the pictures to show the current release, basically I added a slot for a weather application in the upper right, moved the calendar date and time to the bottom right. Made the button highlight the same as the original. Hope you enjoy!

    cool idea and for the most part well executed. It might just be the screen cap but the start menu icon looks pixelated, like you enlarged a smaller image.

    I'd suggest a default microsoft font like arial throughout the theme for consistency. comic sans and snap dont say "windows" to me.
