    [Theme][Port]Metro UI
    This port is based off of the Metro UI theme,100% original artwork credit goes to brobot175. I only ported it so the theme would work on our thrive tablet.
    Thanks to t1nk and Batfish for their wisdoms!

    Based on IMM76D.01.000072314 Rooted ROM

    Note Please make a NANDROID BACKUP before Proceeding.
    1. Copy the File to the root of your external SD card.
    2. Power down your device.
    3. Boot the device into ClockWorkMod Recovery.
    5. Select Choose ZIP FROM SD CARD.
    6. Choose the zip you are going to install.
    7. Watch the system files install on your device.
    8. When completed, select REBOOT SYSTEM NOW. Enjoy\

    My lame screen :P

    Setting up the Metro-UI Layout (by brobot175)
    1. Download the Metro-UI Icon Zip file.
    2. Extract the file on your sd-card(internal or external as per preference)
    3. IF you are using (any) ADW Launcher, locate the ADW Settings and restore it in the ADW Settings Mentu. (If you are using a different launcher you should be fine as long as it lets you re-size widgets.)
    4. Download Desktop Visualizer from the Play Store as it will help quicken the process. You will use this app to make your widgets
    5. Open the app and click on the settings button (top right corner the squares) Enter the following (this is what the original author preferred you can do as you wish)

    Touch Effect: None
    Default Vibration: On
    Text Colour: Doesn't matter as you shall be deleting the text for each tile
    Background Color: Transparent
    Widget Usage: Deselect all but the 4x4 one

    6. To Create Category Names, on your home screen click and hold anywhere to get to the widgets then add the Desktop Visualizer 4x4. Now Click on the empty widget and click "select icon" then "image File" then go to the MetroUITile folder then category names and pick whichever one you want. Then Click "select action" and then "none."

    7. Resize the widget to 2 high and 3 long and move it near the top row. (Repeat for all the other categories as you go)
    8. Follow steps 6 and 7 to find your icon for your app (only click on the folder containing your "icon" and make sure you click on select action and find the app you want to open.) Then click "clear" for Label to get rid of the label.
    9. For a BIG TILE make it 2x2
    10. For a SMALL TILE make it 1 long and 2 high
    12. You can also add the MetroUI clock widget and the MetroUI pulse widget.

    Alternatively you could use Metro UI HD Widget Tile Win8 FULL or DEMO 50% off until the Second of September
