    Anyone know where they are stored? Can I just tweak certain elements of them?

    Thanks!

    I have no experience with tweaking them so I can't advise on what to do when you find them. But when they download and install on your device they can be found in data/app.

    I have the phone USB'd on the comp in USB mode so I can see the Removable Media AND MOT sections in Windows Explorer.

    That would be why you do not see it then. You would need to access that directory using a file manager on your phone.

    Which one are you using and are you rooted? Not sure if you need to be, just asking in case.

    Rooted, yes. Its just called "File Manager". I AM, just so you know, running the Eclipse ROM. Not sure if that makes a difference. Im an old iPhone modder, so I can get around. Im just ASSUMING these themes have .png files similar to the iPhone that I can tweak in PS and re-upload to the Droid??

    I just tried "file manager" and even I couldn't figure it out. Try Root Browser Lite by Jrummy, I used that and found the directory no problem.

    I know there is but I would not be the best person to ask. I would think anytime you modify one of these apks you would need to sign them so they are able to be installed again but I have not messed with anything like this.

    So, youre saying that I have to download the .apk, tear it apart, tweak what I want, and then rebuild it and install it? Hm... Are there programs to build .apk files for themes? Im so lost..... :mad:

    Yeah pretty much. Android theming is pretty highly involved and I am definitely not the person to learn from, I just know some basics.

    Yep that's right. Take a look at apk manager (for windows). I have a mac but the only reason I have windows on my computer is for this program. It will allow you to take apart an apk (like a go sms theme) and modify any png to your liking or colors and compile it back together and sign it. It's got a really nice interface too so it's very user friendly. Let me know if you have any questions on how to use it and I'll be happy to help!

    You just need to locate the apk using a file explorer (try root explorer). The app will be in the data/app folder and from there you can get it off your phone a lot of ways (email, send to a folder on sd card, dropbox) so whatever is easiest for you. Just long press the application in root explorer and then select send or share and you'll have all these options.

    So, I got Root Browser and found the APK file that I need, but I have no idea where to find it on the computer once its connected. AND, it wont let me email it because it says that it has to be on the SD card. BUT, when I try to move it to the root of the SD card, its not there. SO frustrating! This was SO MUCH easier on the iPhone...

    And, for that matter, why is it that the directories and files on my computer, while browsing my phone, look NOTHING like the directories and files in Root Browser?! :mad:
