MD7 Windows Phone 7 Inspired theme for Android Devices [Video]

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:

  1. If you haven’t already, install LauncherPro or ADWLauncher EX
  2. 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.
  3. Use a custom, transparent dock with 5 icons for the launcher and only use the first and last spots (leave the rest transparent).
  4. Install MultiPicture Live Wallpaper, assign desired wallpapers from the “Windows Phone 7 UI” pack, and then make sure transition effect is set to “slide.”
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
