    OK - I am trying to port my theme to UD2.3 ... did things as usual and thought everything would be OK. I installed the theme to test it out and only the apps I themed installed, none of the framework images or xml edits showed up. So, after discussing this with another themer, he told me to decompile the framework-res.apk then edit the xml's, recompile and sign the .apk. After doing that I could then insert my themed png's. Did all of that with no success. So, then I tried installing his theme - same results, no framework edits being installed. Did a fresh install of UD2.3 with wipe and I am still getting the same thing! Clockwork/SPR, doesn't matter ... I can not get the framework edits to install no matter what I do!!

    Anybody have any suggestions? Has my phone gone completely haywire (not likely)?? Is this user error (more likely)??

    I have been at this all friggin' day and it's driving me completely nuts!!

    My guess is...there is not enough system space for the framework-res.apk to overwrite properly

    Your Avatar always makes me chuckle :tongue:


    70% in system ?

    this is what happened to me while theming 2.1 and 2.3 the apps would take but the res.apk would not, but I put a lot of third party themed applications in my update.zip so space was tight - on 2.1 - I ended up just pushed the res.apk with terminal - but on 2.3 - I deleted unnecessary system/apps before flashing my update.zip and it worked fine as it overwrites in alphabetical order system/app comes first and system/framework, second - it was not completing the process

    I see what you're saying, but I only have the framework-res.apk in the framework folder and just the apps I themed in the app folder. I trim as much as possible to keep the theme small ...

    ok man, not what I thought it was.. PM this or post it... tell me what exactly you are doing to make your theme update and how you are packaging it when you are done editing it.

    alsp apk manager 4.8 or 4.9?

    The only problem you might run into with releasing it is - that other people will have this same issue
