    I posted this in the main thread but it easly got overlooked. A lot of people are having trouble running the A2S file. I changed the file type to ".Command" and this is what came up

    Tried this and this is what came up.


    "Welcome to A2S (Apps2System) for Linux/OS X!
    Created by Berzerker
    ADB not found! Please download the Android SDK extract it, and place this file in the folder with adb in it!
    logout

    [Process completed]"

    Was i supposed to do something before this?

    Everyone keeps saying "read the directions" "its easy" but obviously it's not because many people are having problems.

    the script needs adb.exe, you have to download the sdk for mac to use that script. all it does is transfer the market apps from /data/app/ to /system/app, thats it. The windows version of a2s and FwT has adb.exe built in. so 99.9% of the time, people who have problems with FwT or A2S dont even have the ADB drivers installed. and dont know HOW to install the adb drivers.. I have made this as simple as possible.

    ---Download the mm files...
    ---Use mm and theme with darkedge-ese81 (or whatever)

    (It WILL 99% of the time fail at framework, ITS BECAUSE OF MM!!!)
    (because there are so many files modded and because framework only transfers 1/2 way, it will cause a bootloop) <--- in other themes you just had to reapply the mm when it did not transfer all of the way. DarkEdge is not like the others. So you have to get the framework files from /sdcard/AndroidThemes/DarkEdge-ESE81/framework/ to /system/framework/ . So whats why I made a tool to do this for you, otherwise you would have to do it manually. To do it manually... make sure you are in recovery, adb shell busybox cp /sdcard/AndroidThemes/DarkEdge-ESE81/framework/* /system/framework/ then reboot (that will fix your "M" boot problem)
    Then we still have the problem of theming apps. because market apps are signed with their own keys you CANNOT theme them and have them work. To work around this you ether have to RESIGN the market .apk with TEST keys after its been themed/modded or transfer the .apk's to the /system/app/ folder. So I made a .exe for that too.. A2S ... here is the manual way of just doing 1 app from market.

    adb shell /system/bin/sh -c true;busybox cp data/app/com.google.android.apps.googlevoice.apk /data/local/GoogleVoice.apk;pm uninstall -k com.google.android.apps.googlevoice;busybox mv -f data/local/GoogleVoice.apk /system/app/GoogleVoice.apk;chmod 644 /system/app/GoogleVoice.apk

    Thats for google voice, now imagine doing that for all of the apps the need to be themed.

    for both the .exe I made there are only a couple requirements
    -Windows-
    FwT - Needs to be in recovery
    FwT - Needs to have the adb drivers installed
    FwT - Needs to be connect to your computer
    A2S - Needs to be in android
    A2S - For the apps you want themed you need them downloaded from the market
    A2S - Needs to have the adb drivers installed


    ---Reboot into recovery and use FwT
    ---When the phone boots back up again download your apps from market
    ---Run A2S
    ---Apply the DarkEdge-ESE81 apps
    ---you are done


    ***if you get a market app update***
    ---Download new market app
    ---Run A2S
    ---Apply the DarkEdge-ESE81 apps again
    ---you are done

    Sorry if this come off rude. But it is very frustrating

    So if i'm using a Mac i don't need to install andy drivers correct? When i have my terminal open my phone is not recognized. I have tried pushing on application at a time and pushing them all at the same time. Could it be that my phone doesn't work with my computer?
