Unofficial Froyo build for Dell Streak gets HTC-flavored theme

Streak-froyo-theme (1)

Themes are a great way to dress up a rooted Android phone, and the Dell Streak running Stephen Hyde's Froyo ROM (now up to version 1.1) recently got a very nice one.

Thanks to the work of kikamal in the MoDaCo forum, any Streak with Stephen's ROM can get a light cosmetic makeover that includes new taskbar icons (the circular one on the left isn't included), a more readable notification shade, the colorful settings menu icons from HTC Sense, and a spruced up launcher menu. There may be other changes as well, but those are the ones that I've noticed so far.

Screenshots and a quick how-to below.

Note: This theme is purely cosmetic, so you won't lose or gain any functionality by applying it.

To get kikamal's theme on your Froyo-running Streak using a Windows computer:

  1. Download kikamal's themev2forum.rar on your computer and extract it using something like WinRAR.
  2. Enable USB debugging on your Streak by tapping Menu -> Settings ->Applications -> Development -> USB debugging.
  3. Connect the Streak to your computer.
  4. Open the extracted themev2forum folder and double-click the themekika.cmd file inside it.
  5. The command prompt will automatically open. Leave it alone until it tells you to press any key to continue. Doing so will close the command prompt and reboot your Streak.
  6. When your Streak is rebooted, the theme will be applied but your Google account will need to be re-entered.
  7. Go to Menu -> Settings -> Accounts & sync -> Add account -> Google to enter your normal login details.

Enjoy!
