    Updated: True Zen for 83xx 4.5 - hope you like the finished product.

    OK OK OK! Man did I learn alot just trying to make the svg for this thing. However, i am really happy with the outcome. Changed the icons and style of the theme. And with a few comments about animation - and really thinking about how much you would see it, this is what I came up with. The home screen is like this - 4 customizable icons on each side of the "yin yang", which at this point doesn't spin. There is a 5th icon (which is invisible, but functional as the "Blackberry Icon" which takes you to the home screen) that when it is highlighted - the 4 icons drop off the screen into a hidden dock and the yin yang then begins its animation for 10 cycles, so it will stop. Now I don't know if that will eat up memory or not like some people say, but I would love to hear if it does or not.

    Wasn't in love with the original theme I was previewing for you guys, so hope this is up to true pinstacker standards. Enjoy - and as always let me know what you think.

    NOTE: ONCE AGAIN, THE ANIMATED PART OF THIS RUNS ALOT SMOOTHER THAN WHAT YOU SEE.

    Looks good- my only reservation with animation is it tends to eat memory like Rosie O'donnel attacks a candy bar- another individual that posts on this site- no names, but dr is part of it, does alot of animation. Every one I have dl'd eats resources within minutes. I have even had them lock up my phone. I hope your experience with animation is more positive- chris

    is it the indefinite cycle or just the animation itself, if I were to animate it for 10 cycles, would that make a difference, really how long do you look at the home screen when you are using your phone.

    I don't know- I installed Raton's Matrix theme, and let my phone go " to sleep" I have auto-lock, so I know it was only active for a brief time. I came back to my phone an hour later, and the memory was down by over two meg- I don't know what is going on- chris

    I think it might be the nature of the beast, but can't be sure- you might as well try it to see- don't get me wrong- animation is very cool and this one is especially neat (kudos to your pics and layout) - I just wish I knew why they tend to be such resource hogs- cause I agree- I may look at my home screen 5 seconds at a crack, if that- cc

    This a nice theme but my phone does the same thing. Its drains too much battery and leaks memory. But keep trying. Some one will perfect it. Maybe you!!!!!
