Honeycomb, Android 3.0, was recently announced by Google to help establish a foundation for tablet devices. We’ve been lead to believe that Honeycomb will only be available for tablets, not smartphones. That’s not sitting well with many of us, including this developer who is working on a Honeycomb theme for CyanogemMod 7 that he calls “Honeybread”.
No, it’s not really Honeycomb, the OS is Gingerbread (Android 2.3), but the look and feel, along with the colors are very much Honeycomb. To get started you’ll need to have CyanogenMod 7 installed on your phone. After that, the steps are pretty simple:
1. Download the Honeybread.apk for HDPI phones: http://bit.ly/e2V2ca
2. Install the APK on your Android phone.
3. Open the Theme Chooser app from your app drawer.
4. Select the “Honeybread” theme.
5. Press “Apply”.
6. Reboot your phone.
How does it look? Here’s how my T-mobile G2 looks with the theme and some custom widgets.
