    Can someone either take this app and make the widget smoked but keep the colors the way they are, or point me in the right direction.

    You will need to rename to: YouTube.apk

    Thanks in advance

    You will probably have more luck (and faster) searching for a smoked glass YT widget. They're out there. Mine's smoked with the red "tube" if that's what you're looking for. I'm not going to install yours just to see what colors they are. You should post a screenshot ;)

    OK, Here is a newbie question. I have read a ton and just not sure exactly how to apply an APK. Do I download it, make sure it is on the root of my SD and then go into root explorer and install? Is it that easy? I am running Smoked Glass 6.0. It came with different themes and I see others with them on but not sure how to get them to show. Please help in idiot terms.
    Is it time to leave SG and go Bugless? SG is working great with no Force Closes though

    Download an apk installer like eoeappinstaller, astro, (there are others) and long press on the apk you want to install.

    Haven't used Adamz Smoked too much at all. I've used SS UD CM but I LOVE Pete's new BBv1. Very fast.

    mine is smoked....do you want me to upload the apk? i think you can just replace it in system/app then set the permissions and reboot.

    I am trying to use root explorer but it always tells me that the "application not installed." What am I doing wrong? I even try it on things like the alarm clock that I know are installed.

    Ya, I am rooted. It says that same message for everything in the system\app .APK when I try to install. I am not long able to install Facebook either. Last night I tried to put the new version on and it told me to uninstall the old FB and reinstall. Now right from the market FB says incompatible version.

    Make sure that when you copy and paste the apk to system/app you then need to long press on the apk and change permissions to rw-r-r and reboot.

    I am now trying to install any apk. I am in root explorer and system\app. touch any APK and it brings up install, view or cancel. I click install and it says this is a system app do you want to install, al previous version will be erased. I say yes, it says allow this app to .... Then I say install and it tries to install then says application not installed. I check permissions and they are as you said rw, r, r
