What's changed @TheoS53?

Any chance you might put one up with plain dark gray background? Hmm?

Changed the bootup and shutdown sequence
  @TheoS53 I just installed your firmware and it is brilliant - looks amazing - like a factory installed option. Great work!!!

Thank buddy, that means a lot. My main goal was to have it looking complete and factory like. One of my biggest gripes with themes and custom firmwares on Android was that they never felt complete. There are still a few small things I want to change, like the shortcuts bar. But it's coming together nicely now
That's a damn nice looking theme Theo.

Thanks a lot :)

Thanks buddy. I searched quite extensively to get the right minimalistic font. Usually they're rather thin, which didn't work very well on the X5's small screen

Updated the first post to include the latest additions by CH23 and TheoS53. Tell me if I missed any.
 
Also, a note for the modders: When you are done with your mods, I would suggest putting them in a compressed folder (.zip or the likes). That way you can name the compressed folder anything you want while keeping the x5.fw name intact. This also gives you the opportinity to put a readme file with your signature, any copyright thingies you want and a quick install instruction.
 
This will be easier for you to manage multiple mods and easier for the "consumers" who will have all they need in one package.
 
As always, thanks for your awesome work.

Man, this is awesome! I love the vertical text menu. Great job!!

But I have something else in mind, and I was just wondering if you would be cool with me using this as a base. Full credit given, of course. Basically, I just want to change the background and font. More specifically, a darker background and possibly using the Roboto Condensed font from Android. I have over a thousand other fonts too, so I have a lot to experiment with.

So, is this cool with you?

I don't mind at all. But remember, if your theme turns out better than mine, I'm gonna have to sue you for everything you got :-D

Have fun

I will be very interested in your theme, must keep an eye out for it.

Thanks to ALL the nice people for these mods.

Thanks! I'll try not to out-do ya :wink:
Hopefully I can find some time in the next couple days to get to work on it.

Glad to see some interest. This actually motivates me to get it done :)

Here's a preview of my re-theme of "Less Is More" with the Roboto Condensed Light font. I figured this font would work well because it's thinner, therefore able to show longer titles before it starts scrolling. I might also test with the normal weighted Roboto Condensed, but I think the Light version looks good as-is :) Any thoughts?
 

 

I'll have to wait until I get home to do the rest of the work I intend on.

That looks fine in the pic. Just keep in mind that the X5 has a small, low res screen..so you have to be careful about using a font that is too thin or small

Yeah, I had considered that. It looks fine to my eyes, but I understand some people's eyes might not be as good. Maybe I could release my final theme with both fonts as options.
