    Hey all. I have a nice idea for a new theme that hasnt been done before. I have the graphic design skills, but im looking for a partner to help compile this theme with me. I need someone that truly knows linux and android, because I can provide some of the .pngs, but unfortunately i run on macs so theres no way i can repackage all the apks etc without running into problems. send me a pm if interested and I'll explain details of what I want to do in there.

    You don't really need to know linux to theme. And for android, you just need to know the basics of stuff like 9patch png files, and maybe a little xml hex editing. Mac doesn't have a program like 7zip?

    Not that doesn't cause problems. I tried messing around with a program like 7zip and the apks got messed up when I tried to resign them... broke some images and caused some FC's when I was trying to do simple editing

    (yea, never resign system apk files, usually causes issues)
