    That might be the difference between an Official Swype Beta and a leaked version

    To uninstall the stock keyboard go to Root Explorer system/app/LatinImeGoogle.apk and rename it to LatinImeGoogle.apk.bak and reboot your device, to reinstall it take off the .bak and reboot again

    I'm trying to make a theme and when I try to extract or apply it, it's telling me "the theme control file is either missing or incorrectly written". the only things I'm actually changing are the images, I'm not touching any of the XML. is there some trick I'm missing?

    update: OK, weird, it's working now

    anyway

    Here's a red version of sneaky's Swype_DE. all I did was color shift the yellow to red, there's nothing else different. goes very nicely with the theme that comes with UD eXtreme 8.

    make sure your not renameing the .zip file, you might be compressing it wronge, instead of extracting it just open it up with 7zip and make the image changes then back out of the archive, or drag and drop the modified images into there respective places in the .zip file

    like I said, it's working now. how are the zips supposed to be compressed?

    update: I think I see what's going on. MetaMorph is expecting the XML to be "HostOS=Unix" within the .zip no matter what, isn't it? if it's doing that to make sure the .zip is compatible with the .apk, that's kinda silly, since MM extracts the files BEFORE applying them to the .apk, which would (or could/should) default the file's HostOS to UNIX anyway (or to that of the .apk's compression).

    anyway, I think the problem I was having with it not even working from an already extracted theme was that I had forgotten to re-scan the SD card (after extracting the zip in windows) before trying to apply.

    unless they're edit-locked, you could consolidate them them into the first post yourself by hand. not really the best of methods.:icon_eek:

    theres a limit on how many attachments you can put in a post,i was thinking more of the line of a mod moving all my post with attachments on the first page and moving all the user post down....i could throw them all up on my server and host them my self but i kinda moved on to doing a system theme found here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-themes/84275-wip-theme-need-tsters.html
