    How to theme an app

    So I'm trying to theme an app, Thumb Keyboard. I've tried opening the apk from TI/Astro backups and repackaging it, which didn't work, because the app manager didn't recognize it. I tried Ninjamorph, but it just makes the app stop responding every few seconds and pop up that FC dialogue. When I uninstall the patched app, the phone soft reboots. So how would I go about theming the keyboard by replacing the png files in the apk? They're the same res, still png files, and I edited them in GIMP.

    Use 7zip and adb push over the top of the current apk.

    You can't use ninjamorph on non system apps, at least as far as I know.. what I do is unzip, replace images, zip, change extension to .apk then resign with zipsigner which is in the market.
    Oh and you'll need to un install the current app too or it won't let you install it.

    Didn't work, even tried deleting META-INF, which I heard about on another forum.

    I just tried using APK manager 4.9 and it STILL didn't work. I set up my adb and everything too. I signed and zipaligned in APK manager. Maybe it has something to do with LGB v0.7. The 0.7 Droid 2 users were complaining that the themed Liberty keyboard had constant FC's.

    Were the pictures that you were editing .9.pgn files? Because if they were and you weren't compiling them after an edit that would cause it to not work. And you do need to delete the META-INF file then resign.

    Nope, regular PNG files. I was using a script so I assume it was doing that for me. I'll try doing it manually, and installing Mobile Sensei's Liberty Keyboard and see if I have any problems with that.
