    Nah, it's a great question! I haven't had a chance to put up an FAQ/Guide/How-To or wahtever on the site.. have been a little swamped.. lol

    Install it just like any other theme.
    --Move it to the root of the sdcard
    --Reboot into clockwork recovery using the DroidXBootstrapper (or Droid2Bootstrapper if you're on a 2)
    --Select install .zip from sdcard
    --Select Choose .zip from sdcard
    --Select the theme (SephtinCustomTheme##...#.zip)
    --Select yes (you'll know which one)
    When it finishes:
    --Hit the back button on the phone to go back to the main menu, and reboot.

    :)

    Any chance of getting some blackjuice options in here? I'd love to combine his icon sets with some of the options you offer.

    I would love that too!

    My current plan:
    Step 1: Hopefully in the next week or two-
    --Status bar text color changes
    --Allow Blur based ROMs
    --Allow Themes with status bars with light colors
    --Throttle hack
    --Remove clock
    --Remove battery

    Step2: Give themers the ability to include themed applications along with their themes on my site.
    Step2.5: Automate adding themes to the site (Probably not completely automated, but at least enough to make my life WAY easier. :S Right now takes an hour or two for each theme.. I can get that down to 5-15 minutes pretty easy I think.

    At this point, I will be approaching themers to start including any and all themes I can onto the site.

    Untill I can include apps, themers are much less likely to want to include their themes... All in good time... Lots more to come!

    Im glad people are enjoying Sephtin's site and some of my themes. I want to apologies for the text field issues. I'm new to the themeing thing. The Green Lantern text field warp will be fixed tonight. I have learned a lot and hope to keep making improvements. Sorry and bear with me please.

    Sephtin Custom Theme site update.. kinda..

    Was hoping to have an update by last weekend.. but am running into an issue.

    Looking for someone that might be able to assist with one of the following:
    --) Free webhosting that allows the use of Java (need it for smali/baksmali to run to decompile/recompile services.jar to theme several components
    --) Or help wrapping the above mentioned .jar files into stand alone linux binaries... (Have tried this, but the ones I've made are giving me out of memory errors when running on the webserver. :S

    More info here:
    Delay on latest update of custom theme site… — sephtin.com

    Thanks!

    WOW! I couldn't have said it better myself! Coming soon!
    Soon = however long it takes to finish debugging the new engine (back-end) for the site, and get the new site up and running on the new host. :)

    So, since my last post, markfogel has offered hosting on a VPS, that DOES work with java (!!), so, that issue is solved.. Just need to get the site contents moved over to that server...
    In the meantime, the engine that ran the existing site was completely re-written from shell/bash into Perl... and with any major overhaul like that come a few bugs... think I've gotten most of them, just need to fix reading config files correctly, and passing the vars back in, and a few multi-line search/replaces, and the shiny and new perl code should be set to run the new site!
    Most of the code is on the new site, just need to work around a theme issue or two (since the theme was being pulled from WordPress.. but the new theme site will be on a completely different server than before... so I don't know how to carry over the header/footer.. but I got a buddy, who's a web guy who's looking into it.

    I had hoped the engine would be fully functional by the end of the weekend.. *cough*.. but right now, looks like another day or two. Then I figured a few days for the site/theme/etc. stuff.
    Next weekend maybe? With some luck, *maybe* next weekend.
