Chrome OS Converges With Android In Concept “Chromium OS Theme” – Looks Fantabulous


A few days ago, Google took the wraps off their new and improved Chrome OS update. The most notable change was a completely overhauled user interface, reminiscent of Android’s tablet UI, but with the sleek, minimal stylings of Chrome (possibly a hint of OSX int there). Well, after a request popped up on XDA to bring Chrome’s snappy all new UI to Android in the form of a theme, one Android modder is looking to make that a reality with his “Chromium OS Theme” concept.

Still just a mockup, you get a good idea of what we can expect when/if Google’s Chrome UI would look slapped on your Android device. Smjfosho is the themer involved in bringing the concept to life, and is currently looking for some good feedback from users on the thread over on XDA. Hit the source link and help the man out.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Amazing…. I’d buy it! If it comes out as a CM9 theme engine theme then that’d be awesome!

  2. I so need to unlock the bootloader on my HTC evo 3D I want this theme on my phone so bad. Anyone have any programs (besides the “official” unlocker, I’ve already tried it. No workie) that is simple enough for a redneck geek to understand?

    1. Don’t sell yourself short. Pretty much any rooting method is do-able for most all tech levels so long as you read the instructions carefully and follow the steps to the letter.

      But sadly I don’t have any leads for you as I don’t own the aforementioned phone. Good luck to you though, I’m as enthusiastic about this Chrome theme as you are.

  3. Looks very good, hope the rest looks just as good

  4. White background in an AMOLED screen?? Say goodbye to your battery!!!

  5. The app button is in a dumb place but besides that I would use it.

    1. Well… it can be moved =p

  6. Loving it except for the white notification panel. While I admire the simplistic clean feel the white gives it, I’d much rather it be the same translucent shade that the status bar is.

    …also I think this would be a very nice addition to the Paranoid Android rom.

  7. Wake me up when it’s done. So that I can give you my money good sir.

  8. This will be a great theme!
