Campaign regarding X3 theme beautification

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 

Statement: In order to bring more fun in using X3 and meet more personalized requirements, we have developed one firmware unpacking tool. With this tool, customers can design the theme’s elements according to specified formats and sizes, so as to create one new personalized firmware. After reset, customer would get the new customized theme to replace the former embedded one, which includes the following elements:

 

1. Boot animation

2. Color and font of the character.

3. Background on various interfaces

4. Icons and operation instruction animations (i.e. upgrading lib, charging icon)

 

Due to its complexity, the theme beautification design requires professional knowledge and large work efforts. We hereby sponsor this campaign and provide related award to encourage the participations of the customers. See below for detailed rules of the activity.

I'll give it a try.

 

I'm thinking about a black&red theme and a light gray theme. What exactly is the red used in FiiO's products? Gotta look it up later.

 

Will the themes be switchable on the go? That should allow both a nighttime theme and a daytime theme.

Great, but... Chinse language? can I use English in my X3?
Also there are 5 folder in /litegui (from theme1 - theme5) Could it be a rule to edit only folders 2-5, so that theme1 would be deafult?
