    I am going to try my hand at inverting the Twitter app. I have never done this before, but with the help of thebowers' inversion walkthrough and a few prayers, maybe I can get it done. I will keep you all updated on my progress, but I wouldn't expect it real soon. It will be my luck that Twitter will update as soon as I get it done. APK Manager is being real particular and I'm getting an error when I decompile the Twitter app. It is the first time I have used it since the install and I have to figure this out before I can even get started.

    Okay, here is my first attempt. It installed okay, but I have to figure out why it keeps force closing on me. If anyone wants to look at it, I am posting my progress. Just change the zip to apk and install with Root Explorer or Astro. I will get back into it tomorrow. Later.

    Edit: I have been able to install this over the existing app. As I said, just change the zip to apk.

    Thanks I will probably need it. I followed along through the latest Facebook and Market inversion and it was great how everybody came together to get it done. I want to be a part of that.

    I personally hate it here, but they keep me chained to a radiator in the basement, so I can never leave.


    Jk anyway good luck with the inversion, always good to see people expressing an interest in joining the dev community.

    I can only work on it at night, but I'll be on vacation for the next two weeks. I plan on trying to be an Inversion Pro by the end of the two weeks. This is the error that I get with APK Manager:

    Please make your decision: 9
    cd: 305: can't cd to other

    I have a help request on xda-developers in that thread to see if anyone can help. Dully79 helped me get it set up in Linux and I'm hoping he can help me out. When he helped me set it up, he had me change the 'other' folder to 'am'. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. He has a working version, so there is something that he might have missed when he told me how to set it up.

    Okay, I got the apk decompiled and I'm editing the AndroidManifest.xml. Bear with me because I ate up most of the night just trying to get the damn APK Manager up and running.

    Well...I thought I was getting somewhere, but I just installed what I had done and I don't see any of my changes. I'll have to give it up for tonight. Tomorrow is a new day.

    Scratch that. I couldn't go to bed without some progress. I posted what I have done in th OP. I will get back at it tomorrow.

    I think I might start over tonight and slow down. I will do some changes and then test to see my progress. Hopefully that will make it easier if I get some force closes.

    Devildog.. post what you are editing as well. It may be more helpful if I (or we) know what you are doing.. That way I can at least point you in the right direction. I have never even seen the Twitter interface so I need that info to help you.

    Sounds good. I read over the Facebook thread again and seen how you did it. I'll keep everyone (as well as myself) posted on what I have edited. I kind of went a little crazy last night on editing things and lost track. I was still a little frustrated about my late start because of my adventures with APK Manager.

    Well, I am not off to a good start tonight. All I did was edit the AndroidManifest.xml file and recompiled and signed it. It installed on the phone with no problem, but I got a force close when I tried to open it. I am not doing too good so far and it's only the first edit. This is what I changed it to:

    android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Black" and this is what it was originally: android:theme="@style/Theme"

    Is this wrong? I was looking at the previous BnB Twitter app and that is what the theme was on there.

    Edit: I think I may have figured it out. I am thinking that I don't need to edit the AndroidManifest.xml file. Let me go back to look at it.

    Okay, I'm pumped!! I'm actually getting somewhere now. I have updated the OP with the new version that I have got now. I edited the styles.xml and colors.xml in the values folder. I have also swapped out the pngs in the drawable-hdpi folder.

    It should say theme.light in the manifest (for you to change to theme,black) I would have thought. if not, then i would have attempted the exact same thing you did.
