    I created mine just by extracting PNGs from different themes and APKs, creating some of my own PNGs, swapping out some APKs altogether, changing some hex color codes (which is basically unecessary now with UD since he has a settings menu for that, ...then ported them by pulling a new ROMs framework-res.apk and a few other APKs, and then basically swapped all of these into that ROM.
    I have yet to try and create a completely self created theme from scratch, I usually admire many of the things already put out by a 'Pro' themers and merely 'Kang' :p:D many of their PNGs, icons, or ideas...:)

    BTW HarleyDad... I have been entertaining the idea of perhaps taking one of the next ROMs (most likely UltimateDroid v9.0) I load and creating my own DragonDroid theme for it... not sure if I want to put in the time though, maybe.... I just tinkered with what I have currently and it's much easier to port what I have already than to try and create one from scratch as many of the talented Themers here do...
    Anyways, here's a simple look at what can be done to change the appearance of certain things...which is basically what theming really is...

    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! :)
