Hi guys,

Inspired by the stunning ICS Domination Theme created by Vertumus and addicted to the Blood Mode i started theming my every-day-use Apps to Red.
As first App i have chosen ES File Explorer (by EStrongs Inc.), its a free app and a pretty handy explorer.
(Market Link: https://market.android.com/details?i...gs.android.pop)
Maybe someone else also likes the Red Touch so im happy to share the modded APK with the community.

Installation Notice:
Uninstall your previous version of the ES File Explorer before installing this one!

Have Fun and keep on modding!

the mistake you made here is a big one. You themed the apk instead of making a flashable themed .zip.

so now people have to delete their app to install yours... and when a new version of that app comes out and they update, it will all get back to default, and you will have to edit a new apk on and on and on... waste of time

instead make a vrtheme zip that people can flash , that will be universal, i.e you won't have to theme it for each update, just once

hope i made sense

You are right about the VRTheme script mate and its the "common theming procedure" but how can someone without cwm install the theme?
With a fully apk file you are able to install it on a stock phone.
(as side note i have noticed that some png sizes changed from the last es file explorer version to the newest so the cwm zip would also needs to be readjusted when this happens or am i wrong?)

anyway thanks a lot for all advices, allways learning here :)

I get what you mean mate but see it this way

If a person doesn't have CWM, then they can't flash Vert's theme anyway,especially not the Blood Mode.
And I doubt anyone would want a red app that stands out from the rest of the theme for that matter ( though I may be wrong )

Anyway, it was just an advice mate

PS. File sizes are not important, changing a .png name or something would make it unusable. So once a new version comes out, you just have to check if the file structure is the same, if it is, then you have nothing to do, if it is not, you just add new edited pngs to the zip, make it a new version and upload Fast and reliable

Great job on theming the app there

Youre again right with CWM and Verts theme + Blood Mode but as you allready mentioned maybe someone wants a red explorer anyway
I appreciative your advice about VRTheming and will try to get more knowlegde about it (thx for pm).
As for file size, i think i have used the wrong words.
I didnt meant the "file size on storage", i meant the image dimensions. When they change i will for sure have to addopt the VRTheme flash file or otherwise the app page layout can get deformed..?

Thanks and regards

Oh yes, that can be a serious problem, didn't quite understand you the first time
But again, it's just a few edits, shouldn't be too hard to fix if it comes to that

Happy theming
