    A while back a saw a screenshot of the OpenMoko platform, and was greatly impressed by its look an feel. So about a week or two ago, I started trying to make my TX look like this. Now this is a very young project, and it isn't even closed to being finished, but I wanted to show you all some of the first screenshots, and to hear your opinions on how it looks/if you like it. So here goes:

    It looks great so far! I have not been so excited about a theme since Joe's mac theme. If I had a palm I would be excited to try it out!

    Looks real good, but I am not into orange.

    If the orange was a different colour, I would say it would be a "MUST HAVE" theme

    Thanks for the compliments gwilo, sorry but Orange is OpenMoko's color, I decided to use that look because I really like Orange :) I also made a Maemo DIA that is white/silver :D and a 275 count Vista Icon Pack that is full of different colors :D but I would not be comfortable releasing those as they are not Open Source like OpenMoko :rolleyes:

    Consider this project pre-alpha, as it is as raw as a project can get ;) It's going to need a lot of more work, but I'll try to keeps you guys/gals posted on its progress.

    Stuff todo:
    -Finish IconPlus Package
    -Start PalmRevolt Skin
    -Finish DIA
    -Maybe more/undecided

    Very sharp! but, since I don't see any mention of Palm support on the OpenMoko Portal site, how did you do this? Background is 'easy' but how did you change the icons? Is this with the built-in Palm Launcher or a 3rd party, like zLauncher (which is skinnable)?

    Again, really sharp!

    Thanks Rick :)

    This is done with ZLauncher (trial) but it didn't have to be. I only used it, because it's like its own seperate "world", and doesn't effect the function of the rest of the device. To change the Icons, I use software called IconsPlus (but in this screenshot I did a quick port to ZL), and it changes every icon, even ROM apps' icons. The DIA is skinned with MyKbd, and everything else is PalmRevolt :)

    Very nice, and I'm not even an Orange fan. The icons have a wonderful look about them, quite pleasing to the eye. :newpalm:

    That's a very good-looking one! Nice details and colors. I like orange also.
    I'd definitely use it - or at least some icons of it - if you released it.

    Keep up.

    Just a quick hit, DIA landscape is done, and so is the Graffiti skin, tell me what you think :)

    Oh, and the landscape icons look off center, but on a real device they actually aren't because of the Blackbordor, and black strip.
