    Current version: v1.4 - Sunday, July 11/2010
    Price: $3.99
    Recognition: Featured on the CrackBerry Theme Roundup for July 12/2010! Thanks for everyone who recommended this theme, you guys are the best!

    CrackBerry is giving away 50 free copies of the theme away, so if you're able to wait until they announce the winners, which could possibly be you, then head on over to this link here and leave a comment. Contest ends this Sunday, July 18 at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count. Thanks goes out to everyone for your ongoing support, feedback, and compliments, I wouldn't have the motivation to do what I do without you!

    Overview

    As a proud Nexus One owner, I felt inclined to have that same look and feel on my BlackBerry, and what better time than now to celebrate the official release of Android 2.2 codename Froyo (Frozen Yogurt)?!

    From the creator who brought you the widely popular ONYXia series, XM-BB, and Series 7 themes, I present to you my most ambitious and technically advanced theme yet: Frozen Yogurt!








    YouTube Demo Video - Click . Please note that the video capturing software slows my poor laptop down immensely, affecting the speed at which the simulator operates. The theme will no doubt run at a MUCH smoother pace on your actual phone, this video is for demonstration purposes only. When in doubt, don't take my word for it; read the many comments about how fast this theme runs on the actual phone =)

    Features

    - Over 1400 lines of fully optimized, custom-coded SVG
    - Rich, fully-skinned interface supports a full departure from the rather boring BlackBerry look and feel
    - 5 scrollable homescreens with panoramic wallpapers (very wide wallpapers that slide left and right as you navigate left and right through the multiple screens)
    - Google Search widget (launches the Google website, will implement a fully-working integrated search bar in upcoming versions)
    - Power Control widget contains 6 most used daily functions
    - 6-icon user-defined bottom dock + Froyo-styled 2-icon launcher dock which is also user-definable
    - IN-THEME Wallpaper Changer. Ability to change the panoramic wallpaper, or use your own wallpaper (see screenshots)
    - IN-THEME Settings Screen. Ability to toggle widgets and Today screen background on or off (see screenshots)
    - Dedicated Today screen for SMS, Messages, and Calendar with room for up to 10 entries
    - Spacebar launches QuickLaunch (sold separately)
    - Dollar sign ($) launches SMS
    - User-defined font size (except Dialog Boxes and Menu Pop-Ups
    - Lightning-quick performance. Those who are coming from my previous work know what to expect when I say this

    Notes

    - To access the Settings screen, activate the Applications icon in the middle of the bottom-most dock (aka the Froyo launcher dock). To exit from this screen, make sure to follow the instructions at the top of the Settings screen

    - First 6 applications are for the main dock, app slot #7 corresponds to the left app on the Froyo dock, app slot #8 corresponds to the right app on the Froyo dock, and you must place my included Web Link: Google in app slot #9

    - Please do not place SMS, Messages, or Calendar in any of the main docks, there already exists a dedicated Today screen for these particular apps. The only exception is if you're running OS 4.7 or an older revision of OS 5.0 where your SMS doesn't count as a Today item, then you can place it in the main dock if you'd like.

    - Before I get a bunch of "reports", let me explain to you that hiding the Google Search and Power Control widgets from the Settings screen will in fact make them invisible, but will still allow you to access them if you scroll to where they should be. This is NOT a glitch, it is 100% intended. The reasoning for this is so that these important functions can still be accessed if needed, while being able to enjoy a full view of your wallpaper

    - the Lock application does not exist in the newest revisions of OS 5, so it will have no function in the Power Control widget for those who are running it. On the other hand, those with OS 4.7 or even earlier revisions of OS 5 will benefit from the Lock button in the Power Control widget

    - As always, perform a battery pull of at least 30 seconds after successfully installing the theme to ensure maximum performance

    Purchase

    If you bundle your purchase of Frozen Yogurt with my other popular theme Series 7, you will receive Series 7 for only an additional $0.50 for a total of $4.49 for both themes!

    Click HERE to purchase Frozen Yogurt individually or with Series 7 (check under the headline “Better Together”)

    Thanks

    As always, thanks for taking the time to view, and I hope you can consider purchasing this high-quality theme. Support is always in this thread if you need it, I am at your service =)

    - Vince

    Looks absolutely terrific Vince. Maybe you'll find a 9000 on ebay or something. Either that or I maybe I qualify now for a 9700 upgrade with Rogers. They used to qualify you every year but now a year gives you a regular phone and 2 yrs for a smartphone. Not sure what to upgrade to if I qualify or if I should wait for rumoured devices.

    I would save the upgrade, maybe the new BB Slider is coming out this summer, it appears to be a hot phone from what I see so far.

    Good news though, Sheldon. Someone shared with me how to get simulators working even using the new Theme Builder, so I may be able to get these themes ported to the 9000 and 85xx devices afterall! I'm really happy about that!

    There is a bug in this theme that freezes the Clock app whenever you try to set an alarm. I have tried to fix it but can't find the source of this bug, so I would like to make this known to you before you purchase the theme. What many have suggested is to switch themes to set your alarm. Because that's a bit inconvenient, I want to compensate everyone who purchases this theme with 1 free panoramic alteration. That means if you have your own wallpaper you want to have as an option to use as a panoramic within the theme, I am willing to do one per customer if you so choose. It's really the least I can do for the inconvenience. To claim this, either PM me on CrackBerry or Email: veeteepee at gmail dot com, and include a LINK, NOT AN ATTACHMENT to the photo of your choice, and also tell me which one of the default 10 panoramic wallpapers you want to replace. Then on my end, I will get it replaced for, I may not be able to do it instantly, but it shouldn't be more than a day or two wait AT MOST for me to get back to you. Thanks for your understanding, and I sincerely apologize again for the bug.

    I've pinpointed the cause of the clock/calendar/etc bug... basically, if I skin the menus and dialogs and all that, it will cause the bug. I know this is the cause because I created a new theme from scratch, and all I did was change the menus and dialogs and it caused the bug. When I reverted those changes, the bug went away. I'm guessing this is a bug in the new SP1 of Theme Builder, as my skinned menus have never caused this problem before. The only remedy I have for this is I make two versions, one with skinned menus and dialogs, and one without. I'll have it so if you purchase either one, you just have to PM/email me with your order number and I'll give you the other one for free, so you have the freedom to alternate if you wish. Unless there's a better alternative, I'm all ears.

    I just created this theme for the 85xx, and luckily for them, they are STARTING at v2.0, so if anyone wants an idea of what the next version is gonna look like, watch the please!

    You'll find that I've more or less kept it the same while making some changes that make a lot of sense and add to the usability of the theme.
