Get your tablet optimised HoneyBread V4 theme for CM7 out in Alpha

honeybread for tablets CM7

One of the greatest features, among so many of CyanogenMod 7, is the awesome themes engine. With all kinds of themes to choose from, CM7 packs it all. But what if you’re looking for a Honeycomb theme? better yet, what if you need a Honeycomb theme for your tablet device? Got that covered too.

XDA Member mad-murdock has put together a great theme based off Honeycomb and optimized for tablets. He’s taken the original Honeybread theme for CM7 on smartphones and customized the sizes of icons, widgets and the general UI to show nicely on a larger screen resolution. Also, if you’re the coding type, the source is available for anyone to work with as well.

[CM7][Theme]HoneyBread Alpha 4 [TABLET TWEAKED]

After i developed the tablet tweaks, a lot of people started modifying framework and systemui to exchange the buttons instead of doing it with a theme. the way they were going just was bad by design. no fixes are included except those people repeat their work with every new nightly build. thats the reason we use theme engine by now. it works for all devices and all versions.

my initial complaints about modifying those files and my suggestion to use a theme were ignored – so i came to the point to do it myself.

all i did was adding honeycomb icons for the soft buttons to the already existing honeybread v4 theme

The theme is in Alpha stage, meaning some functionality may not work, but isn’t that the beauty of open source alpha releases anyway? Head on over here to grab this tablet theme.
