    It was supose to be a couple nights ago, but looks like it's been delayed.........maybe tonite.

    On a side note... if you want to try and theme on your own, I was trying to hint to you that you can easily do most of it by merely extracting the ROMs framework-res.apk....altering whatever images you want in the res/drawable-hdpi folder and zipping it back up, renaming it to the apk file extension, and copying it back to the phone...overwriting the framework-res.apk that's currently on your phone.

    Simply extracting, and copying & pasting is much easier that using ADB to pull and push those APKs, it's essentially the same thing kind of....APKManager does the same thing almost but it just complicates a very simple process IMHO.... editing XMLs becomes more involved, but you could kinda control a themes color schematic by creating most of you images in that specific color.

    I really woudln't recommend to you to download the Android SDK, Eclipse, APKManager & ADB just to try and change your current ROMs theme..... just changing out your images is the fastest and easiest...

    If anyone likes Michigan State...and who doesnt after this past weekends game vs. Notre Dame...here is a really basic, semi choppy MSU boot animation.

    I have been using it since I figured out how to create my own earlier this year and have been to lazy/havent had enough time to make a nicer one.

    Here is a basic guide on Droid Life.

    And a more detailed explanation of the des.txt file is here.

    When zipping the file, make sure your compression ratio is "store".

    Good way to start in your own mods of a droid. About the easiest mod to do with least chance of messing it up!

    BTW, I am about to start working on a few boot logos (not animations) using the HD bard and shield emblem! :)

    Shibbey, got a little of a challenge for you on this one. I was wondering if you could help me with this because I have no idea how to make a bootanimation from a GIF. I was wanting the beginning to be like the original droid bootanimation where it spells out "DROID." Then instead of it going to the red eye after that, have it go to the GIF I attached. This would be for the OG Droid.
