    ok so... if your phone goes into a bootloop, theres actually no way to get into the custom recovery to restore... sbf all the way back to 2.2..lol WOW.. that makes this a lot funner.

    Yeah after having a D1 for so long working with a locked bootloader is strange. I never had to SBF once in well over a year and a half with the OG. In fact I didnt even know what it was because you could do anything to that bad boy and could almost always recover with a little holding x + power button action lol. Now SBFing is like second nature :)

    ok, beyond frustration... I got myself back up and running.. boring... restored my backup.. Ive tried some of my successful attempts..9,8,7.. about to try 6.. and they are all causing bootloops. Not sure what the hell I did but my phone is not happy about it. I have a big feeling I am going to get to start over at square one for whatever reason.

    yep.. square one is where i get to go.. awesome. I just dont get it.

    well, I can't make sense out of it, Mainly because it makes no sense, but, I decided to try installing attempt 1 before I went to bed last night. And, it worked. Then, in sequential order, I was able to successfully install attempt 2-9. So, now I am back to where I was before I got hijacked by the settings. I will finish it but man.. I am really going to have to figure out what happened. Otherwise, to get the theme, people are going to have to install like 20 files..lol

    I made a new settings.apk via a different method but I am afraid to install it...lol I did make a restore point at where I am now though instead of all the way back at the beginning. I think I will finish the frame before I get into settings. If i tried now and it didnt work, id probably throw the phone out the window and just give up. Need some success before I go looking for failure. :)

    SUre I would :)

    OK, so I am down to four items.. at least that I saw anyway.. I am going to list them so that if anyone knows where they are, they can point me in the right direction and save me some time reading through xmls. 1) When you longpress on the home screen and then choose something on there...like android widgets for example... that is grey background with black text.. want to switch it. 2) Same as number one except the next screen that comes up with your list of widgets.. it's grey background with white text. Need to change that background color too. 3) On the drop down status bar.. everthing is good except for the bar that says "Notifications" or "ongoing".. those backgrounds are dark blue. 4) The lockscreen sliders are there but they don't slide. Instead, I can see a faint grey moving across the screen. That one there is probably me just having guided the 9png wrong so I'll be looking into that next. Once I have all that done, I will make a restore point, and ..gasp... try to install my new settings.apk I did. If my phone still works after that, I am going to wipe it clean and try to install the whole thing at once like you guys would have to. So, depending on the time it takes me to find those 4 issues and wethere or not settigns works, I could be done as soon as tonight.


    Edit..OK found a 5th issue. In the market (and probably in other places but none that I have found)... text is black but if you touch it, it turns white and stays white.. makes it fun to read on a white background..lol


    Also.. was going to give you guys a screenshot but.. I cant find an app that will work on the X2.. drocap2 isn't working. I'll try ShootMe when I get home... pull it off the D1.

    Cross off number 2.. think I found it in settings.apk. Number 1 is in the framework somewhere though.. hmm

    Number 4 is fixed. it was a 9png issue, I put the guides in the wrong spot. Causing them to move wrong. We're good now though.

    down to 4 things.. and settings.apk, who needs it.. i got it inverted via the framework now.

    And I can't find anything else so, these 4 should be it..really...

    1. Settings menu.. Font is white (want it grey) but if I scroll it off the page and bring it back, it's black. It should stay gray always (once I make it grey).
    2. Longpress on homescreen, this menu (and others on the system) are grey background with black text. I'd like black background with grey text.
    3. Hit the power button.... this menu is grey background with white text. Id like black background with grey text.
    4. After longpressing on the homescreen, if I choose say, Andoid Widgets, that screen is grey with white text. It also has the mysterious changing font color to black issue like #1 does.

    Wondering.... since #2 and #3 are small enough that there is no scrolling involved... hmmm..

    OK, down to 2 items.. the menu when you hit the power button (which I am sure will fix the other menus as well) and the font changing color thing. Got tired of looking for the answer so in the meantime, I themed the keyboard. It's done and installed on my phone.

    I also want to throw this out there... I will not be themeing the dialer and the contacts. Mine got jacked up (fixed now) and I had to get Go Dialer EX and Go Contacts EX from the market. Now, I can't go without them..love them. So, I will be theming those instead.
