    Here is the one I did for Inspired. As stated in the OP, There are 9 instances for the edit....the first three control the background color. I did grey for #1 and #2 and black for the third. The next six are for the top part (cyan color) I did grey for the 1st and last and then cyan for the middle four.The grey color is 362f26....so in the edit it looks like this...262f36 FF Thank You Jairomeo and thebowers![​IMG]

    After trying again and again and again I decided to push/pull in recovery to see if the changes actually end up on the phone...

    got into recovery, pushed...waited a minute, pulled, checked, and yeah the changed are in the file...

    boot up the phone, pull again.....changes are gone.....

    somehow, my phone is reverting the file back automatically.....

    Ideas?

    Does this also apply to any diagonally-striped horizontal progress bars that have two alternating colors, such as when you are downloading an app from the Market? If not, where do you make adjustments to the colors for that?

    Thanks for the guide, it worked great!


    Have you tried installing it in recovery by making an update.zip for it?

    Great guide! Worked like a champ - thanks for sharing.

    My question is how do I change the actual background the sliders are on? Like in the OP, the slide itself is pink, but the background it sits on is a solid black where the default (I think) is a semi-transparent gray. I've looked all over the drawable-hdpi and I haven't had much success so I am assuming it's an xml edit?

    that is in the framework-res

    im not sure exactly which image is for that, but it is either panel_background.9.png or menu_submenu_background.9.png

    ...or toast_frame.9.png...but i doubt its that one, the name kinda makes me thing its only for toast messages lol

    It is definitely not the toast frame...the toast frame is the text background image that pops-up at the bottom of the screen when something "has been granted root permissions" or "operation has timed out" -

    My guess YankInDaSouth is that it is in fact an .xml - I have a detailed theming guide I will post here later that was put together by some great minds, it is a great resource to have

    I use chevy's background for the sliders and other popups on whichever rom I go to (looks nice with my theme) and all i need to to is carry over those images and have only done an xml edit to change the progress bar color. I have never done an xml edit to keep the message background which is why I think its just those images.

    and looking at thebowers BnB theme, those images match the image he has in the op for the background of the slider

    and i agree with you about the toast messages, that why I lol'd, i wanted to mention that just incase, but really doubted that image is used for anything besides the toast popups.
