    well i found out how to get the apk running with root explorer did realize i had to name it just "pandora.apk"

    i would still like the stock framework res folder though if you have it you can send it to my gmail just pm for it

    What rom are you running currently? The framework files are different depending on the rom. Also, you should learn (if you have not already) how to install the Google SDK tools and get ADB set up on your computer. This is almost essential to any themer. It makes testing parts of your themes EXTREMELY easy... and if you eff up its just as easy to fix it.

    OK dude, you can either download a clean copy of that jrummy version and pull the framework-res.apk out of the ZIP, and that should be a clean framework I believe. If not you can always serach for a stock framework, but then copy the PNG files into your jrummy framework (the XMLs from jrummy might be important to keep).

    To set up SDK and ADB check out this page HERE. Its pretty simple. If you have any questions feel free to PM me and I'll try to help. I know my way around most theming stuff, but I am not too good at the technical parts like setting up ADB...
