    What files do you want switched, did you already switch them?

    And did you already try installing it in system/app? If not try that.....copy apk and paste it in the system/app using root explorer. Then change the permisions to match the rest of the apk's in the folder. Reboot and it should appear. If you cant make that work I will fix it for you.

    Do you normally install this like a regular apk?

    Hey arpitbull when you say change permissions can u elaborate more on that cause i never did that in root explorer i see the option but, there is a bunch of stuff to check on an off

    also, did you just change out the pics with 7zip? how did you do this cause i would like to learn so i can do these things myself , if you wouldnt mind a quick write up. maybe all i needed to do was change the permissions and it would have worked. i had no clue bout that part!!

    Ok.....
    1.Paste the apk into /system/app
    2.hit the mount r/w button
    3.long press the apk, select change permissions
    4.check read and write on the "user" row, read on the "group" row, and read on the "others" row
    5.hit ok, and reboot
    6.enjoy

    Yep just pull the folder with 7zip, make your changes and add the folder back in. Honestly yours probably would have worked, had you tried it this way.
    In order to install it the normal way you would have to "sign" the apk. I have not ever tried to learn this, I may at some point but I really don't have a reason to now. Thats why I like the MIUI theme system, Oh yeah try my theme....MIUI_Evolution 3.0 [.mtz format] WORKS . I will be putting out a new version soon......
