hey, Im looking for some guidance from all you seasoned themers. Im trying to mod /res/values/styles.xml from decompiled framework-res.apk.
Simple text color change so I can go full black softkey menus. (see attached)
I have scoured xda, and google code for a updated comprehensive guide to framework-res.apk themes but I am getting nowhere, lots of various methods offered, nothing working for me. Is there something MIUI specific that I am not seeing?
apktool if framework-res.apk
-------------------------------Make XML change Here-------
----im not getting a .apk in the build dir. (using apktool 1.3.1,and r01-3)
i tried just winzipping + signing then pushing to system, and flashing as update. I could use a hand something serious.
Appreciate any help.
Have you tried Apk Manager? it is the easiest way to mod... you can find it in xda forum...
Thanks man, ill look into it.
Hate to be a bugger bro, u have a link for it? Search for "Apk Manager" is a bust.
^if anyone else wants the link.
ecsnead69, thanks for your help man, APK Manager was just the ticket.
Started to dive into skinning the icons... a bit more than I care to bite off now.
Thanks again dude.
im liking that volume background and ive been looking forever to make the menus black it would so make this theme im working one/made complete

The vol bg in the iphone zip is in framework/res/drawtable-hdpi folder, just copy it from there into your theme. Be sure to run that by the original author though if u plan on distributing. he put allot of work into that theme.
