    Why can't I theme the progress bar!?

    Been trying everything but just keep getting errors. I'm trying to theme the progress bar. I'm opening res>drawable>progress_horizontal.xml after decompiling. I then change the last six values to the colors of my choice and decompile. All seems to work fine

    When I flash however, the progress bar instead becomes my spinner from the framework and just spins...another time i tried it i just kept getting force closes...any help??

    What ROM and are you deleting it from the keep folder after it compiles back up?

    Hi guys, sorry for the lack of response and thanks for your suggestions. The reason i was getting errors was because i was using the linux version of apk manager and its just outdated and full of bugs. once i used the windows version i was able to theme the progress bar with no problem...thanks to esotericchaos and bp328i for pointing it out for me

    I use ubuntu 10.10 and have themed it using apkmanager to decompile many times...never had an issue. But that doesn't really matter, you got it to work so congrats!

    Really? very weird...that's what i use as well (hate windows) and couldn't get past the errors...something about public.xml not being defined or something...didn't get any errors like that in the windows version...

    no it seemed like it was pointing to xml files and saying the resource named here is not defined or something...i dont remember exactly though...i thought it was something with the 9.pngs so i replaced them with stock but the same deal...

    in the windows version i didn't do anything to the 9.pngs and had no errors..

    whats the latest linux version? maybe i'm just using an outdated one..?
