[UPDATED] MIUI_black1.2 (webOS skin)

Postby TheTehk17 » Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:42 am

I am happy to release my first skin- this is the result of the Palm/webOS skin request. I couldn't call it that because I didn't want to infringe Palm/HP's trademark for webOS.

There are three versions of this skin- one with a completely transparent keypress/background, one with a black keypress/background, and one with smaller (chicklet) keys.They all support MDPI and HDPI- should work with any phone. Make sure to put it under the 'skins' folder in ur SD card!

I hope you all enjoy! Please let me know if you encounter a graphical bug, or if you find something that looks "off"!

Please note that my screenshots below made the skin's colors look a bit 'off'. That's just a trait of screenshots, this skin is not actually like that.

(files are under the screenshot)

Here's the version with the completely transparent keypress/background:

The one with a black keypress/background instead of a transparent one:
MIUI_black1.2_no-transparent.zip
(42.93 KiB) Downloaded 47110 times

And the one with small keys:

v1.2- added FULL support for all HDPI devices, and adjusted black levels for HDPI AMOLED displays. Anyone that has this skin on an HDPI phone should update!
v1.1- adjusted black levels for MDPI AMOLED displays.

To update: delete the old skin and download the current one in its place (sdcard/skins). If you keep the old skin, you'll end up with two skins :)

Thanks for your effort. But I just can't use it. The see-thru key press bothers me. Hate seeing text behind keys when I press them. Would rather an all black background.

Passing on this skin. But it is a perfectly good skin otherwise! Good job Dev =]

That is the kind of feedback that I can take into account and use to make better skins, like:
MIUI_black1.2_no-transparent.zip

I put the file into my original post, too, so others can see it right off.

I agree with the other poster - the non-transparent background just didn't work. The black background is much better. That being said, I'd prefer smaller keys with a touch lighter background to add a more 3d, popping effect. I like the color of the keys, but they blend together with the others almost too easily. This, too, is coming froma DX user.

The file 'MIUI_black1.1_no-transparent.zip' has a black background. I thought I said that clearly :)

I can work on a version one with smaller keys.

I know - hence why I said it was better ;-). Keep up the good work, and thanks for the quick responses.

Thanks for the feedback. I haven't had any chance to test on an actual HDPI device- only the emulator, and with an HDPI resolution, the screen size stretches to 7 inches. I'll try to finish it up today.

Updated the skin files on my original post. If you don't know how to update skins, instructions on how to do so are there as well.

I did all I could while staying in the limitations of Smart Keyboard. I think you'll like v1.2.

Let me know if it's better than v1.1.

Curious, I don't have HDPI, how does it look on your phone? Any graphics bugs?
