There are different Windows Phone 7 themes for Android devices but they lack in certain features. Adrian Mignogna has created a new theme called ‘Motorola Defy 7′ Windows Phone 7 UI for Android devices. The MD7 themes instead of replacing your go-to launcher with a raw project, where its best feature is potential, the MD7 theme uses favorites like LauncherPro or ADWLauncher EX as a base.
The Creator of the theme constructed a clever way of organizing apps and widgets with Windows Phone 7 style graphics. It’s essentially built in layers, through the use of a custom launcher, live wallpaper, settings, icons, apps, and widgets. That way, it’s more like the familiar Android experience with a touch of WP7 flavor, rather than a half-baked launcher replacement.
How to get MD7 inspired Windows Phone 7 theme on Android:
- Launcher (ADWLauncherEX, Launcher Pro, etc.)
- MultiPicture Live Wallpaper (klick)
- DesktopVisualizer (klick)
- Windows Phone 7 UI (klick)
- Android phone
- If you haven’t already, install LauncherPro or ADWLauncher EX
- Launcher settings: change icon grid columns to 6 and rows to 10, hide notification bar, and transition effect should be set to “slide” or something similar.
- Use a custom, transparent dock with 5 icons for the launcher and only use the first and last spots (leave the rest transparent).
- Install MultiPicture Live Wallpaper, assign desired wallpapers from the “Windows Phone 7 UI” pack, and then make sure transition effect is set to “slide.”
- Change and adjust icons on the home screens with Desktop VisualizeR. To do this, add widgets with DV and make sure to use the 2×2 templates.
- Add your favorite widgets and enjoy the Windows Phone 7 theme.
Note: no details were provided on the lock screen shown in the video, but after some digging, I’ve discovered that it is, indeed, LockBot Pro.
