    Anyone having any luck with? I used the converter to make xml files but still a no go.
    It keeps telling me there is no apk in the system/data file. When I know the framework apk is there.:icon_evil:


    Only consulation is I backed up the old version.

    It is working for me, but I spent a few hours last weekend converting my few basic clear theme hacks to the new format.

    The only thing that is perplexing me, perhaps as I do not know what is going on under the hood, is that the new xml format is really not an xml type file. Just a text file with and xml extension. I can appreciate the new fields in the xml file, helping to add more info to the theme, but why the xml extension. Perhaps they needed something other than a .thm file to differentiate? Dunno, but I did convert one of my themes with the converter and it did work.

    If it helps, here is my xml file for the news widget. My file structure is the same as the old MM.
