    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.

    OK - I have been playing around and much to my surprise, I have accomplished more than I thought I would! I have thrown together a "Frankentheme" with icons from various themes and threw in my own customization of the notification bar.
    My question is: where are the icons/images for the power control widget and for the settings menu? I have looked in all the drawable folders in the framework res apk and unless I am missing them, I have not come across them.
    Thanks for the help ... again :)

    **EDIT: Never mind! I found them!! :biggrin:

    I don't mind sharing, but at this point the only thing I have done is switch out PNG's from different themes to make a "conglomerate" theme. I rather not post pics though because I have not asked permission from the other themers (yet) - I am at the "doing it to see if I can" stage right now. I have no intention on distributing at this point, that's why I haven't seeked "approval" at this point.
    I'd be more than happy to show you the notification bar being it's the only original "work" I did. It's pretty basic right now, I am just playing around and have NO digital editing experience at all!!
