    for those of you that make themes ADW has released a new theme template that will really complete your theme. there is a Shade.xml that you can and a color shade to the app drawer so no matter what app your users load they will all have the same tone to it!!! you have to build the theme in Eclipse!


    here are screens for my Incognito Theme!! now Get to Work!!!!

    is there a guide anywhere, what im looking to do is just add a custom color font. so i dont have to keep doing it my self on each adw update, right now i have to decompile it,change some xmls,compile and sign and install, just to achieve a golden font color on apps names

    after renameing x.x.x to com.sneaky.zekey.theme . after that i have 3 errors.
    “class x.x.x does not exist” “error: No resource identifier found for attribute ‘installLocation’ in package ‘android’”
    “R cannot be resolved to a variable.”

    Sneaky Sorry was in Vegas for 3 days im back home and Can help you out better! how far have you gotten? there are three places you need to change x.x.x to your new theme name check the android manifest.xml and the java file. if you double click on the errors it will take you to the error itself. hit me up on gtalk if you run into anymore issues!!!

    It may not be the best way, but when I switched the target to Froyo (and update the min-level to 8 (I think in the manifest) it automatically included R appropriately and let me build.

    well that seemed to help.thanks, now the template is loaded successfully and all the x.x.x have been renamed, now to figure out how to edits it to my likings, i see how to add a font but id like to add a colored font

    edit: nevermind i got it, successfully built my first one, now time to get a little deeper into it, that was easy after getting rid of the R error
    edit2: since i changed the platform to 2.2 will this not work on lower platforms

    BTW, the better fix for the R issue may be this:

    Right click on the project name in the package explorer on the left.

    Click on Properties, then on the left in the dialog that popped up choose "Java Build Path".

    Click on the rightmost tab "Order and Export". Make sure Android is checked and at the top.

    That should do it. I think changing the Android version might do this behind the scenes, but if you want to change back to 1.6 (API Level 4, the default baseline for ADW), you should be able to, just check the Order and Export afterward. I got some weird message about installLocation after that, but I'm really only doing the theme for my own phone at first, so I don't mind sticking at 2.2.
