    Any general how-to?

    Hi. I see the guides you link to in your sig bower, but is there any how to out there for getting started on theming? i.e., for SS, BB, etc. I have a couple great ideas for themes, been a developer for over 10 years and was a designer for a few, so I have enough knowledge even a basic guide should help me get started. Thanks!
    P.S., I have googled for this, and all I seem to find is stuff about some panda thing? Did not seem like the same thing so I didn't bother with the entire guide(s).

    I would suggest doing a search for Ultimate Theming Guide. That might get you some where or get you scratching your head. Tell me what kind of guides you need or would like. I have my own section now and hope to get more how-tos out.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    Thanks! I found it and it's a great start. I do have a question already, otherwise I'm moving forward with the guide to start creating my own theme:
    On the signing portion, the guide has you download the singing package by "JF" via this guide: xda-developers - View Single Post - [HOW TO] Manuals for creating a theme
    This seems to be windows based though, and I only have Linux. Is there some other guide you know of for Linux signing, or do I do it somehow through Eclipse like I do for my apps? Thanks.

    I would just use apkmanager. It has a signing tool built into it and I believe it works on both windows and linux.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    Thanks. I'm working on it like mad now. I've got a good one for you though. Can you run the custom ROM you are making a theme for in the SDK emulator somehow and install/test the themes in there? Seems like it would make sense, and be a hassle to keep testing on your phone. Thanks again.

    I don't use the emulator but heard that it takes just as long for it to load up as it would to just flash the theme with an update.zip. you wouldn't need the rom just the whole .apk you wanted to test.

    I'm not a photoshop pro, so I'm not exactly sure where to start. I had someone try to do it for me, but it didn't look as smooth as it should've.
