Back in December Rootz had a developer contest with a Nexus 4 as the prize. Developers were asked to propose what they would do with the device if they win. ChameleonOS is the project I proposed and it's now a reality and not just a concept on paper.

Thank you to all those that voted for me in the contest and I hope you enjoy the hard work our team has done thus far. This is only the beginning and there is plenty of work to be done. We're hoping other developers and themers will join us in making this a great ROM. Remember this is an open source project so contributions are always welcomed.

Will the lockscreen eventually be themeable or is that something android wont let happen?
