    This is an issue no matter what once the app is updated through the market. You can put it in /data/app/ if you wanted and it would still be the same thing. Even if you put it in data, some things will not be able to be updated via the market without removing them first since we change the signatures in order to theme (Facebook and Twitter are great examples). Apk's that don't have their signature broken, can still be updated, for example, I have YouTube in my /system/app themed but am still able to update since I didn't decompile or recompile it.The update will override the themed version of these apps even if they were in /data/app. Google has decided to make the traditionally "system apps" released to the market, allowing them to provide updates, but complicating things from the themeing perspective. With every update, we need the new copy to retheme the apk.

    winrar can stick files within apks without breaking signatures, right? if so, how come android can't do this from within the system? app icons could be kept in a remote folder somewhere, and a startup script could place them into the correct apk on boot (would probably add what, 5 sec to startup time?) then all apps could be updated and on next reboot they'll come back themed. im guessing this wouldnt work, otherwise someone would have probably thought of it already... but can you tell me why it wouldnt work?

    Once you edit a file inside the apk, it is no longer signed. In 2.1, you technically didn't need to sign apk's to push them, but if the apk's signature doesn't match the previous, the push will fail so you have to remove the installed version.

    In 2.2 the files do need to be resigned. The nice thing about the tools like apktool and apkmanager is they allow you to edit the apk and resign with the test keys and be able to install the updated apk from the market.

    Any of the themed apk's with a black background have be recompiled, so unless you know how to do those edits, & you try to simply replace images, you will loose those edits until the themer updates it.

    lol you don't like my sad panda for a dying battery? If you make an awesome round battery let me know and I'll include it in the first post as a separate download.

    Wallpapers were added to the OP until I(drod2169;)) get the syntax error figured out.

    For the wallpapers you just need to add it to the update-script, it should be

    Code:
    copy_dir PACKAGE:sdcard SDCARD:

    Are you running 1.8.9? I haven't heard of this issue yet. Did you Wipe Data and Cache? If not, I would try that and do a complete new install with everything.
    I know it's not what people like to hear, but it may fix the problem.
