    I present you all my latest project related to Android, Theme: Beyond the ocean.

    This project consists mainly in photoshoping the .png files all around the system, later i might introduce some new apps and make them be used as default ones, creating a pseudo rom feeling.

    This is a personal theme, that i made only to fulfill MY LIKINGS, i will of course be open to suggestions, and work with the community in order to create a more friendly Theme for everyone.

    This theme was inspired by Ocean3 ( by: IrealiTY ) and GlassStone ( by: mattmaso )


    Attention: The theme colors are much brighter on the screen! The Screenshots show darker color effects!


    Motorola Milestone
    Android 2.1 Rooted
    Android SDK
    ADB recovery
    My Files

    How to install:

    - Copy beyondtheocean and beyondtheocean.sh to your sdcard.
    - Turn off your Milestone and boot it in recovery mode ( Press camera key then power up with camera key still pressed until a triangle shows up, after that press volume up button leave it pressed and repress camera button. You should now see a menu with 4 options. Done )
    - Start adb recovery by installing the update.zip from your sdcard.
    - Plug your usb cable to the device and run adb shell
    - on adb shell easly type "sdcard/beyondtheocean.sh" and follow the script steps.
    - When the script is done, reboot your device using the dpad on the recovery menu.
    - Done.

    Quick info:

    - You can either use the Launcher.apk or the Home++.apk as your Home screen.
    - Home++.apk is already complete, further changes wont be made on it, all the UI is adjusted to the theme so far.
    - Launcher.apk is the main attraction at the moment, where more changes are being made.
    - Chose the one you like most.
    - After installing the theme with the script, your device may need 2 minutes to boot, DON'T WORRY! it is normal.

    The theme will be paired with Home++ program, due to improved Homescreen and faster UI. When prompted by the system, please choose Home++ as your home instead of Launcher if you want to use Home++ only!!!! If the system doesn't ask you, go to your app drawer and run Home++ there you can set Home++ as your main Home. To turn your statusbar always visible, tap 2 times in the Notifications button. To disable all buttons from Home++ ( after making statusbar visible ) press your settings key, open preferences, power strip, and uncheck everything but Application drawer button.

    ( looking for some1 who can translate this all to German as my German not so good is :) )

    Bombastic :)
    Would be nice to use this with an modified Helix Launcher
  4. also, whats your native language, maybe we can find a translator directly from yours to German
  5. #5 katsuru, 12.04.2010
    I will look into helix, and maybe adjust it to the theme as well, making it possible to use with 3 different launchers ;)

    I speak both, Portuguese and English perfectly, German is still at 60% i would say, I just want to provide all this info to all German users who do no speak English, that is why i am requesting for a translation ;) So that everyone can understand the theme
  6. just make sure the ORIGINAL launcher is included :)
  7. #7 katsuru, 12.04.2010
    It is, the original one from Ocean Theme, i will probably delete couple of wallpapers in there since the launcher is hugee :D
  8. jupp, mine is now 1.7 MBs :)
  9. #9 katsuru, 12.04.2010

  19. #19 sandimann, 12.04.2010
    hmm.. just installed it, and the "button" on the bottom for the launcher looks like the "button" from IrealiTY´s Ocean 3 and not like the one on your screenshots.. did i something wrong? :D

    Yes you did, you are using the Launcher as main home, and not Home++, if you copied the Home++.apk into system/app, you should be able to find Home++ icon in the menu, open it and chose it as your home screen, you will then be running it as a replacement for your launcher, Better UI, Faster UI, Better experience! ;)

    I uploaded the first post with info about how to get Home++ running like i have, just for those who don't know how to get it done :) I will make some screens of the proceeding tomorrow.
