I originally posted this on XDA and just thought that I should post this here as well, I just made an account for this (but have been lurking these forums for years), and now want to contribute something back to the community.
This might be useful for many of you as this particular seller offers support for more than 100 gadgets, most of which can run CM (officially supported and unofficial ones).
So, I was googling around for some cool accessories for my now almost 6 months old KF, it has been through some rough life, even ending up with its motherboard replaced due to blowing it up by connecting the audio out to car receivers speaker rca plugs (blue smoke, anyone?)
I ended up fancying this seller (kinleaves) because of the broad variety of types of skins they offer. First of all I wanted to buy the military matte skin but I somehow changed my mind towards this beauty - Rain
I wanted to put a CyanogenMod logo on it, so I contacted the company, they were kind enough to put the logo there for no extra customization tax, which was pretty neat on their part.
So, the thing costed me 15 Eur (or 22$ for those of you who are from US) with free shipping (that took just 4 days from order to mailbox) included.
The installation took me less than 5 minutes but I ran into some problems with setting the wallpaper, as all of us know that orignally KF is not supposed to be customisable as far as a wallpaper goes, so it is kind of weird that this company even supplies a wallpaper with a KF skin. So the problem was that the status bar of CM9 was making the wallpaper a bit ugly, so I had to resolve this by setting the saved image as a wallpaper with the help of "Wallpaper Wizardii" from play store.
Also, it is really important that you clean the device carefully as I left some big chunks of dust underneath the skin so it made some barely noticeable lumps on the back side.
Enough talking, here are some photos-
1. The package that I received in my mail and my KF
2. Just applied the back piece, notice the CM logo
3. The CM logo closeup
4. Now it's time for the front
6. Finished! IRL the screen and skin color difference can not be seen, so the wallpaper looks just stunning.
Verdict- great way to make your KF cooler without adding those bulky leather cases or things like that. Definitely will order more in future.
Please share your thoughts about skins in general as well.
