    [Theme] Droid X, Sense, Flat Black, Galaxy S + Theme Tutorial *updated*

    Let me know if you want me to post your theme or have a request
    **DO A NANDROID BACKUP FIRST!**



    Download a theme from 2nd post and come back here for install directions - READ EVERYTHING BEFORE INSTALL

    If you follow all directions properly this should be capatible with all roms


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    PART 1
    A. Framework-res.apk extraction
    1. Download Terminal Emulator from market
    DO THIS WITH TERMINAL!
    type following with an enter at end of each line

    su
    cp -f /system/framework/framework-res.apk /sdcard


    B. Framework-res.apk mod
    1. transfer framework-res.apk from sdcard to your computer

    **KEEP A COPY FRAMEWORK-RES.APK IN A SAFE PLACE FOR CHANGING THEMES OR GOING BACK TO STOCK, YOU WANT TO ALWAYS START FROM AN UNMODDED FILE**

    2. rename framework-res.apk to framework-res.apk.zip
    3. download your desired theme and extract the contents
    4. open the freamework-res.apk.zip(DO NOT EXTRACT THE CONTENTS! IT HAS TO BE THE SAME ZIP YOU PULLED FROM YOUR PHONE GOING BACK - CANNOT BE A NEW ZIP FILE) and paste in the modified files (make sure they overwrite whatever is in there)



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    PART 2
    A. Download the package for your rom below
    If your rom isn't listed, you can try modding files yourself with using this tutorial:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/27622-text-color-change-complete-how-do.html

    Contact me if you need help :)

    **NOTE: If your fon't is already desired color (eg. your applying a white title bar and your font is already black in your rom) SKIP TO STEP C**

    BRAZIL- White and Black fonts - stock 2.1 - update1

    https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B1Tco8Vp4APbNDJkY2U3YTctNzIyYy00NjkwLWJjOGYtMmI3OTNjYTE2OTA2&hl=en





    B. Applying Package
    1. Add the modified files in the "add to framework" folder to your modified framework from Part 1
    2. Copy the services.jar to root of SD Card
    3. Push the services.jar file to device using following commands:
    DO THIS WITH TERMINAL!
    type following with an enter at end of each line

    su
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtd/mtdblock6 /system
    cp -f /sdcard/services.jar /system/framework
    reboot



    C. Framework-res.apk Applying theme
    1. Rename your framework-res.apk.zip to framework-res.apk
    2. Copy framework-res.apk to root of SD Card
    3. Push the framework-res.apk file to device using following commands:
    DO THIS WITH TERMINAL!
    type following with an enter at end of each line

    su
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtd/mtdblock6 /system
    cp -f /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework
    reboot


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    PART 3: Boot animation (optional)
    1. For the themes that have it extract and copy the "bootanimation.zip" and "android_audio.mp3 (if its there)" onto root of sdcard

    using terminal
    su
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtd/mtdblock6 /system
    cp -f /sdcard/bootanimation.zip /system/media
    cp -f /sdcard/android_audio.mp3 /system/media ((if its there and you want sound))
    reboot

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    PART 4: APK's (optional)
    1. copy .apk file to SD card
    2. uninstall old apk and using your favorate file explorer install new themed version of the apk

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *****KNOWN ISSUES:*****
    Market Force Close when installing apps FIX:
    1. go to settings > applications > manage applications
    2. menu > filter > all
    3. go to market > uninstall updates
    4. done

    Brazil Date color will not change from black

    Boot animation: Sound maynot work on all devices

    If your applying themes with a white notification bar (Droid X) all you need is Terminal and/or Root explorer from market

    obviously you need to be rooted

    and win-rar for windows available here:
    WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files

    thats it, if your trying to apply a black notification bar theme you'll have to check what programs are needed to modify the services.jar (that is unless one of the pre-made ones works on your phone)

    Thanks for the Droid X theme! I downloaded your brazilian services.jar but I did not like the white clock. Besides the clock, does it change anything else or can I go back to the stock services.jar?
    Thanks!

    Clarified first post, Droid X theme doesn't need the services.jar mod

    Upcoming black themes will.

    I'll see if I have the stock files sitting around and try hosting them for you

    Did you modify all the files yourself ( including the services. Jar) or did you apply one of the pre made ones?

    The premade ones are only for stock 2. 1 roms (as they say on the side)
    If you applied one of those that could be the problem
