    Porting(?) Themed APKs

    Im currently running Cyanogen 6 w/ the Luna theme. Love the theme... but a lot of widgets werent themed. Im looking to take the twitter APK out of DarkBerry theme (also for C6) and the Gmail APK out of black and bold (I like the black themed Gmail, stock white is just too... bright, lol) When I extract them from the theme zips and attempt an install Im told: Application was not installed. Apparently, Im screwing up here... is this even a possibility for my phone?

    from what i've read, you may run into a problem because the apk's from other themes aren't signed. therefore, you can't just simply "install" them. however, you may be able to put them in system apps using root explorer, and then change permissions for them and reboot.

    I would just take them, open them up with 7-zip and drag the themed apks into the luna zip. That way they'll install nicely everytime you have to flash it. And you only have to do it once.

    Better than installing 6 different things just to get the look you like.

    Something must be wrong though...Luna is usually fully themed. I could be wrong though.
    Search "kookahdoo" on the market for my themed apps.
