    a couple questions

    1. I managed to edit the images the way i want but i cant seem to put it all back together in order to have it work on my phone.

    what are the steps after editing images in your drawable-hdpi?

    2. How exactly do i sign an apk?

    Not to sure what you mean by putting them back together in "order". What did you edit? Framework-res I assume ...

    You can use apk manager to sign apks

    I haven't even looked at the framework-res yet, I want to start with the basics like changing images in the drawable-hdpi folder lol.

    I guess what I mean by "putting them back together"is like what to do after I edit the images.I've tried to make a zip file with my edits but when I run it on my phone, I get issues.

    well, drawable-hdpi is in framework-res

    Check this guide out. It has a lot of very usefull info.

    When I first started playing with themes what I did was take an existing theme.zip. I then went into framework-res/drawable-hdpi and had at it with changing/editing images. After my changes, I drop the edited images into framework-res/drawable-hdpi with 7 zip. The flash the .zip like you would any theme and admire your work

    Once you get in there and start playing around you'll start picking things up - google and this forum are your friends lol!

    Oh haha good point.

    Thanks for the link I'll def look into it.

    I guess my biggest issue now is how to make the zip work on my phone. Like I can update the images in the theme I want to flash but for some reason I get errors when I install it. I feel like I'm missing a crucial step or something.

    Thanks for your help btw

    Well, I don't have a DX and have never themed for it. But, What I would do is cheat Find a theme.zip that already works for you and use it - just swap out what's in there with what you edited. Also, the framework-res you use MUST be from the ROM you're running.

    Feel free to hit my up on Gtalk (yankindasouth@gmail.com), I'll be happy to help out with what I can.
