Default [Guide] How To Make JB Themes | 4.1 - 4.2 Themes | Need Root For Installing

[Guide] How To Make JB Themes | 4.1 - 4.2 Themes | Need Root For Installing




Hello there ! , This is my first guide after School exams , This is NOT 4.3 Themes ! , this is 4.1 - 4.2 themes , like Silk Theme .. etc .


What You Need :
  • A Brain .
  • Computer .
  • Need to know how to use APKTOOL , Guide Press Me .
  • Notepad++ , Press Me .
  • Sample , Press Me | Color Chaning FiXed , New Sample Uploaded .

Information :
  • You need 4.1 or 4.2 to be able to install .
  • You need to be rooted , after making the theme , move to system/app with the correct permissions .
  • Theme is going to Change : Accent Color , Lockscreen Wallpaper , Phone Wallpaper , Settings Wallpaper , Phone - Messages App Wallpaper .

 
Steps :

Download Sample , install your Stock ROM framework-res.apk + SemcGenericUxpRes.apk , Decompile it in Apktool folder .

 


ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

Open AndroidMainFest.xml And Apktool.yml With "Notepad++" and edit "sonyericsson.ac" to your desired Package name , Example " sonyericsson.test" .

 



ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

Reopen Them , Edit android:minSdkVersion="16" to android:targetSdkVersion="17" in AndroidMainFest.xml , And Edit targetSdkVersion: '16' to targetSdkVersion: '17' in Apktool.yml .

 



ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

Now , Go to smali\com\sonyericsson edit folder name "ac" to the name you have put after "package="com.sonyericsson" , Example in the photo .

 


ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

After That , Enter the folder you named , open all Smali files with Notpad++ , And edit these "Lcom/sonyericsson/ac" to the folder name , example in the photo .

 


ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

When you are finished | Edit the photos with PS Or any Photo Editor | go to "res\drawable-xhdpi" , Edit semc_bg_tile with your desired photo , and the photo mustn’t be White ! , And edit "semc_bg_bright_tile" also , And it mustn’t be Black ! , Edit "semc_theme_wallpaper" with your desired Wallpaper , Edit "semc_theme_lockscreen_wallpaper" with your Desired Lockscreen photo , And at last edit this "semc_theme_preview" with your desired preview image ( you can put lockscreen photo and wallpaper photo together ) .

 


ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

Now , Go to res/values , And open Strings.xml , And edit between " > < " the one with black color , with your desired name .

 


ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

When you are finished , Open Colors.xml , edit hex code , after these " somc_theme_accent_color_light " and "somc_theme_accent_color_dark" , to your desired Accent color .
And edit the hex code after this " "semc_theme_illumination_color" to your desired illumination color .
Color , Hex Codes can be found here " www.color-hex.com " , or you can get them via decompiling the Stock themes .

 


ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ــــ

Now , You are finished ! , Compile the APK , Sign it , Move it to System/App with rw-r-r permission .

DONATE TO ME
Great job!! Congrats...
And you have made the news!!
I have paced these forests for so long
I don`t know, if I am a man or I am beast
I though hold deep within me, a quest for revenge
Then I must be a man as much as I can be
I have learned to speak the tongue of animal
I have learned to read the signs in bark and snow
I have taken within myself the spirits of my fathers long time gone
In this short time, far from home
A man of iron I`ve grown...
...A man of iron I have grown

(Hail Quorthon... RIP)

If you like my work and consider me worthy, consider DONATE me too. Thanks in advance!
