    Hello, I'm backwards Android.
    I'm currently trying to learn how to do this theming thing and will try to learn from THIS thread.

    I want to create themes that people use and love. Most likely the reason you guys do it too... or for your self personal themes too I guess lol

    It's all new to me, but I'll do what I can to learn it and hopefully get help from you guys!
    And anyone that really understands this stuff I'd love for to help me, maybe even through an IM of some sort.

    In the meantime, I'll be ready to learn and help out this community:)

    Look at my attachment of a dialer theme I screwed around with. I did this pretty fast so I know it sucks, but I was just trying to get use to the feel of editing things like this:) My real themes when I get to it will be full of awesome stuff! Can't wait:)

    Good luck! I have recently started toying around with it, no full blown themes just little parts here and there for myself, though the last two things I released.. It is a lot of fun!

    Thanks!
    But wow that is longer than the thread I was looking at in the OP. Can you take a look at that one and compare it too the link you gave me?
    the one you gave me asks for a lot more tools and what-not, I want to understand all this stuff but it's hard!
    I feel like I was a month ago before I knew NOTHING about ROMs and themes and kernels and rooting and it was all mixed together and confusing to me. Once you passed that curve it's like wait.... this is easy. Why couldn't I just understand this before? lol

    ..but this theming thing is looking a lot harder (hoping it becomes easier and more natural)

    And I posted a question in the ADB thread but it's dead in that thread (rhyme?)
    :)

    That's not even a theming thread, that's just on how to use ADB lol. I'm assuming all you did was pull your phone.apk, edited the pngs, then pushed it back to system.

    wow it takes a lot to make your own theme. It made me realize how hard some of these devs work. I need to start donating more.
