I will start by saying thank you to Stetsonaw for the update.script and to sm00th0pr8r for testing this for me since I don't even have a DX... I blind themed this and got it right on the first shot, even with all the xml edits.. I've never themed the DX before but it went smooth so I'll port the rest soon.. This theme is an update.zip, not a theme chooser apk so it installs via recovery.. This is the remixed version that has all new button sets, phone dialer, dark pop up menus (no black on black), more xml edits and an animated statusbar pulldown (credit Alastrionia for the code).. I assume you can make a nandroid back up on the DX also so have one made or make one prior to modding your phone.. and I take no responsibility for you or your phone so flash this at your own risk (disclaimer)... I included my Kameleon apps as a seperate install but they applied perfectly for my tester and only need to be applied once since they self theme according to the Primary system text colors (Settings menu text colors) so if you flash these on a theme or ROM that has a white background with black text, you're gonna have some black on black issues so take precaution before installing these.. On my themes, they will theme themselves to match the color of the theme though... and on a white text rom/theme they're inverted but still look cool...They have new update.scripts so they work on the DX now.. I'm not sure if they work on other DX roms, tho.... I work my butt off making themes and helping themers out so I hope you enjoy my work and I'm lookin forward to porting the other 8 themes over to the DX.. Make sure you change all the colors for lockscreen, deskclock and statusbar stuff in Chevy's settings.... Enjoy!

DOWNLOAD LINKS:

1.a. http://bit.ly/MurderSSxDX MAIN THEME DOWNLOAD - This one has an animated pulldown and it's experimental.. some phones work fine with it, others don't... might cause fc on process.media when downloading something

1.b. http://bit.ly/MurderSSXdxNoANIMATEDpulldown MAIN THEME V2 - NO ANIMATED PULLDOWN - full theme but with a standard pulldown background - Tested and works great!

2. http://bit.ly/KameleonGoogleVoiceandSearchDX Kameleon Black GoogleVoice and GoogleSearch - flash just like the theme in recovery

3. http://bit.ly/KameleonBlackMarketDX Kameleon Black Market 2.3.6 - Flash like the theme in recovery - *SHOWS UP AS BLACK MARKET IN APP DRAWER*

4. http://bit.ly/Kameleon154Facebookapk Kameleon Black Facebook 1.5.4 - Uninstall your old version and this installs like a normal app

5. http://bit.ly/KameleonBlackMarketDXButtons Remixed Kameleon Black Market 2.3.6 - Flash like a theme... this version uses system buttons to match it all up better!.. *not sure how this will look on anything other than my themes or a theme that has dark buttons... SCREENSHOTS AT THE BOTTOM

*INSTALL DIRECTIONS*
Since I don't have a DX I'm going off of what my tester said to do..

1. download the theme and move to the appropriate folder/or root of sd

2. boot into recovery and make a back up or if you already have a current one, just wipe cache and install theme

3. Enjoy your MURDERED phone..

If these directions aren't correct or if anyone has any questions, hopefully a DX user can help me assist since I'm not familiar with it...

Chevy has a built in color changer so I didnt change it.... however, I did have to on the d1 for GPA 15 and CM 7 and it was in SystemUI... I don't remember which XML but I'll look when I get home..... probably depends on what phone/rom....

well i did soooooo much research and appearently its a lil different on GB 2.3.3 and im running apex 2 rc2 d2 on my droid 2 with my own custom theme... im pretty sure on 2.3.3 you need to decompile framework-res.apk and go into res/values and its colors.xml ... well i do all that and get that far but when i go to recompile it i get errors and its not signed even tho the program tells me not to sign system apps and stuff, but then i push it to my phone and reboot and it doesnt work and it ****s up my accounts on top of it and i have to restore a back up... so frustrating...

errors on recompiling can be .9.png issues tho.. on xml edits as long as you use low case letters and make it #foad30 (example) then it shouldn't error.. and I'm not familiar with the apex rom or blur stuff but on D1, there is no need to sign system apks.... and if you have a SystemUI.apk, then the clock color is in there I believe...

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10789872/CLock_color_xml.zip this is my decompiled statusbar.xml from SystemUI/res/layout and you'll see where I added in the lines for "android:text color #"... I believe you can add them where they're located in mine or right in front of the "text appearance".. it compiles them and moves them to where they are right now.. give that a shot and let me know..

Do you have dropbox on your PC?.. if not, let me refer you so I get more space. Then you can make a new folder on your PC and drag or c&p your decompiled statusbar.XML into that folder and zip it.. then upload it to dropbox and copy the public link and paste it here... then I can look at it at least... actually you can do the whole SystemUI. Apk instead....
