If you’re quite the themer like myself then you probably go through quite a bit in a week’s time. And searching the entire Android Market for a theme compatible with your launcher can be daunting. Wouldn’t it be nice if all of the themes on the Android Market could be organized for you despite what launcher you’re using? Look no further. N3xGen Theme Manager, by Bentotbox, has provided just what you’re looking for. If you are sporting any of the following launchers, you’re in luck:
- ADW Ex
- Launcher Pro
- Launcher Pro Plus
- T-Mobile Theme Chooser
- And custom roms that support Theme Chooser
If you enjoy theming your phone as much as I do, then this is an app for you! The current Android Market does not support the wide array of themes that it could. This is where N3xGen Theme Manager steps in. It takes the chaos of themes in the market and organizes them into an application dedicated to themes.
Thanks to N3xGen Theme Manager, searching for themes has never been easier.

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.
XDA member adam2010 has designed a new theme currently for the Google Nexus One device called ADAMOID LuxurY DeSIGn using the CM7 ROM. You can have a bigger look at the screenshot above by clicking here. This theme is a very nice looking package, with changes to the general look and most apps. The theme includes MIUI Music, Go Contacts, Go Launcher (themed) and Go Launcher Classic 2 as well.
To install this theme, you can get the package from the application thread, and you’ll need to extract it as its not a flashable package. Extract it to your SD card, then go into recovery mode and flash it. If you love this theme, but have another device besides the Nexus One, go to the same application thread and submit your vote on what device he should build this theme for next.
One of the coolest things I’ve loved about Android from the beginning is the fact that the OS has always been diverse and flexible. Your phone won’t feel outdated a year from now because there will always be some hack, app or skin to keep it up to date and in the game. So it’s no surprise that the folks over at XDA bring us yet again, something “fresh”. XDA member spirellilein has developed a variety of new gingerbread themed clock skins for your aesthetic pleasure and viewing. There are six different skins for you to choose from so your phone will never again feel “bland in the hand”. He’s even taking requests for colors, fonts and anything else you’re willing to send him. So, head on over to XDA for the instructions on how to download the skins and let us know what you think of them in the comments below.
