So, its been a slow weekend and got playing on Photoshop as usual.

I had a mess around with the perspective of the dock icons, trying to get that 'cover flow' look. The icons are added to the wallpaper as launchers seem to crop docks of height over ~100px. I'm in two minds about it, can't decide if it works or not...

Also running the CM7 MIUI-like Battery Bar Patch: [link]
I really like it, and I am looking forward to it being officially merged.
Thanks to sej7278 over at Modaco for the Self-compiled CM 7.1.0 nightly 220+ with this patch included. [link]

Apart from that, everything else is the same as my last screenshot deviation here: [link] (Apart from the Lockscreen which is my WL MIUI-like sliders:[link])

btw what did you mean "icons are added to the wallpaper"? so is it like there are no usable icons on that screen? o_O
chrisbanks2's avatar
Yep there are usable icons, I just use a transparent image for the dock icons, so it looks like you are pressing those added on the wallpaper..

WOW! i love the battery bar the top, could you tell me how to do that?
chrisbanks2's avatar
Its a patch for CM7. No sure if its going to be merged in the end though.
supetawesomedude's avatar
i clicked the link that you posted but i dont see any instructions on how to do that
chrisbanks2's avatar
The link I provided is a change that have not yet been merged into the nightlies. When self-compiling patches can be included in own builds as it pulls them from github.

I used Someone (sej7278) Self-complied CM7 for the ZTE blade including a few patches yet to be merged into the nightlies over at the Modaco site.

Its pretty outdated now and I'm using a newer KANG.
supetawesomedude's avatar
okay, so theres not much change of me getting that huh
chrisbanks2's avatar
Someone may well have made a CM7 KANG for your device with the MIUI bar patch included.
Have a look around XDA, or a forum with a modding section for your phone.

I have no idea how to do it myself, I was just lucky the ROM was shared :)

Wait, I see it now, God I'm dumb :P

I like, but how did you make the battery bar white?
Is it a theme chooser theme, if so which one?
chrisbanks2's avatar
This was the older CM7 MIUI-like Battery Bar Patch which had the option to change the colour. The latest patch seems to have removed that setting, strangely.

Nice concept with the dock icons but will it even practically work since they are squished so close together? You did get the effect though.
chrisbanks2's avatar
I had no problems with it, never pressed the wrong button.
I guess it could be an issue on a smaller screen though.

Guess it could work.I have a Nexus S so no issues regarding screen size.Just thought due to the spacing between the actual links, it might not align on the extreme left and extreme right icons.
chrisbanks2's avatar
It works great, trust me ;)
