    I tried to theme the search widget, not the google search widget and it didn't go well?? The voice search was broken and I got this weird yellow and green "eye" over the mic symbol??? Anybody else have this trouble?? All I changed was the "google" placeholder image.... thanks!!

    I don't use the Search Widget so I haven't themed it, but my guess is Google doesn't like that you are trying to replace their logo image.png so they are giving you the Evil Warning Stink Eye

    Sounds like you are using LauncherPro. It has that ugly eye thing on the search bar.

    Yeah sounds like the launcher one

    That one gave me trouble too not sure what went wrong, but I tried it again and it worked the next time.

    If it doesn't work just theme a different one. I did here try this one

    [​IMG]
    If you want this one just push it to your system/app and set permissions then reboot.

    Should work fine. If you wanted to edit more or change colors shouldn't be hard to crack it back open and change hue for color change.

    If you want to put another icon in the place of the green G its really not hard to open that one in paint, just use the eraser tool on the original image. then keeping that one open, open the other image you want to use then choose edit/select all then choose copy on the one you want to use. Now switch back to the file you erased and paste the new image [you can click on it to drage it around to place where you want], if its too large or small you can choose undo and go back to the one you copied it from and start resizing it there then select all and copy it again to try to paste it again.

    I know Im not very good at explaining things so if you have questions just ask here or pm me. I'll try to help.

    If you really want I still have the apk open on my pc so give me a color or send me the image you wanted if the one in my image works for you I can edit to your liking or you can d/l the one I posted below its my green one. like the pic.
