    I do have a test thing, I named it framework and it has the res folder it just won't let me drag into it. I also tried x's tool and it said done then when I pushed it to my phone it had little black spots like it didn't stretch. I may have edited it wrong I will try again when I get home and make sure I get it right. Thanks for the help.

    All I was doing was trying to edit a status bar to white to go with your theme. I got all the icons inverted no problem just them .9s you have are giving me trouble.

    You can send me the image if you want.....I'll send it back as a .9 and a png so you can see where the border has to be.

    Those pesky .9.png files! I'd share a tip on some of them but the Jeweler might kill me:)

    I have tried with MMS but in theory this should work out for you!


    Code:
    change parent="@android:Theme"> to parent="@android:Theme.Wallpaper"

    I've been working on one from scratch for about a month. Although I probably spend only about an hour a day, as that is all I can spare with two little ones and work.

    One thing I've also learned is that theming on a linux box sucks b/c it is darn near impossible to use the xeudoxus tools. Does anyone have a hint to get that part of it working?

    Dumb question,as it seems that updatzip is how most themes are applied, but hoow do I convert my theme from an mm theme to an uodate.zip? This might not be a simple answer, buut any help would be appreciated. As I understand it, I can't apply changes to phone.apk without an update.zip.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a quick question: Is it posible to change the notification bar black, but leave all other aspects of the pull down unchanged? In other words, black bar with the stock pull down? I hate the the white bar but like the clean look of the stock pull down. Every theme I have seen changes the pull down as well as the bar, so I am wondering how difficult this would be.
