    Hello everybody, another noob here asking a question. I just recently rooted my Droid 1 and I am currently running Bugless Beast with the Luna theme.

    The Luna Theme is a great theme, don't get me wrong, but I am a HUGE rise against fan. I want to try and edit the theme to make all the blue areas white, and have all the moons and android logos turn into rise against logos.

    Now here's the question part:
    Would a noob themer be able to do this? I had experience is tweaking iPod themes, but that's it.

    Now, if I don't have the experience to pull this off, would sombody mind doing it for me? The theme part is allready all done, just some basic (I think) cutting and color replacing.


    Please help out a noob :(

    Havent used luna but... as long as there arent any xml edits all you need is 7zip and a photo editor. Just open archive the file. Navigate to system/framework/framework-res.apk/ then pull drawable-hdpi and drawable-land-hdpi to your desktop. Edit the images and then stick them back into the theme using 7zip

    By the way. You need to use the latest beta version of 7zip. Not the latest regular version.

    There are tons of xml files...just saying. Yeah I definately cannot do this. Lol...I might be able to adjust the few picture files though. I'm really good with photoshop. If any of you guys have any picture editing needs, just hit me up :D

    I got a request for you. Make me a logo that is says my name (Ballmore) and add an Android in with it. I make my own stuff normaly but I'd like to get original stuff from other "artist." Don't make it like the one that is in my sig either. lol I want something totaly different. I want to see what you got. That is if you are up to the challenge young grasshopper. If you don't feel like doing it, I understand. I just figured that I would take you up on your offer. :)
