    First off, I'd like to began by saying hello to all you users and abusers, as this is my first post. I got my first BB last month and I'm loving it. Since then, I've been looking at these forums daily trying to learn as much as I can about these powerful devices. This place is a goldmine of info!

    Now, on to the theme...

    This is my first attempt at any kind of phone theme, but I have been testing it on my phone for the past few days so I hope I have most of the bugs figured out.

    This theme is largely based off the Zen Precision theme but with a redesigned notification bar that takes up less screen real estate, perfect for showcasing your wallpaper! The icons are the standard BB icons but no longer have the tabs or see-through dock behind them. The incoming and active call screens were redesigned to fit with the rest of the theme. The menu, messaging, control, etc. fonts and sizes CAN be changed by the user for greater flexibility.

    I made this theme because I didn't like all the space that the time and date took up on the precision zen, and I wanted something really simple. I hope some of you, can find it useful as well.





    This theme is for 8530/8520 running OS 5.0. But I can also port it for 4.6 if there is a demand for it. Enjoy!

    *UPDATED: Added 4.6 version as well. Though the call screens may be buggy since 4.6 won't support repositioning or different text colors.

    5.0 DM

    5.0 OTA

    4.6 DM

    4.6 OTA

    Welcome! That theme is really pretty. Could you possibly do it in a different color, or several color swirls? I have a thing for purple, or purple/blue/green swirls? Personally, I don't use weather icons, so that could be deleted.

    I'd be glad to do a donation, or be your color experimental person; PM me if necessary. {:-)

    Well done. I just put it on, no problems so far. I like how clean it looks. I am not a fan of the space the bars take up on the home screen either. This seems to "showcase" wallpapers better as you said. Thanks!! I'll be sure to post any bugs that I may find.

    This looks really nice! I think if I were to make any recommendations it would be to get rid of the profiles icon on the top banners then re-center everything. OR learn how to make a mini-icon so that it's only in ONE banner instead of spanning both of them.

    then figure out how to make a hidden dock to make it truly minimal and it would be awesome! But without all that it is still a really, REALLY great theme! ^_^

    4.6 version is up. Though like I stated above, the call screens may be buggy. Let me know how it works and what needs to be fixed. Thanks.

    Good idea on the hidden dock... I might have to try that once I learn more about Theme Builder.

    Anyone know how to dl this to their bb? I hit the 5.0 ota but its still a zip file. No comp so has to be ota. Oh an x2 on removing the profiles. Just make the icons smaller and this would be EXACTLY what I'm looking for.

    Redid the links for the 5.0 and 4.6 OTA downloads. They should be working fine now. Sorry about that.

    I downloaded mine on the phone from the link and it worked for me. Click on the link and it pretty much does itself.

    I actually did originally use transitions when I first made this theme, but I personally don't care for them. The seem to really slow down the phone and it made for a bad experience in my opinion. Though, if there is a real demand for it, I will create a version with transitions.

    Any weather app should work. Just put it in the seventh slot.
