    unfortunately aokp40 doesn't offer new soft key thems like sorcery (it's more stable on my phone though lol).

    i downloaded some new soft key themes off xda developers, but i can't figure out how to actually apply them.


    if you can link some to download and tell me how to apply them, id appreciate it guys. thanks

    i thought you could create a custom graphic file with whatever image you want and point to it in the nav bar settings section? i never tried it myself, just remember reading about something similar once, maybe i have my roms confused...

    Click on the icon pictured on the page (on the right side). Circled in red here: View attachment 52565

    Once you tap those, you get the option to use Gallery or an equivalent to select and crop the icon to be used.

    Sourcery does indeed make theming things a lot easier than most other ROMs.

    AOKP devs have stated that with JellyBean they will be starting from scratch, so perhaps they will change the way they implement it by JB.
