Attention themers, I would like to (re)draw your attentions to the VillainTheme system that launched earlier this year.

Full information can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1207017

Basically this is a theme system where you make your theme following the above guidelines and update.zip method and then your theme can theoretically be applied on any phone and on any rom.

This should save you a heck of a lot of time in making different versions for different things, and also means that your theme can be used by a far wider range of people.

Please give a lot of consideration to using this.

When it first launched it had quite an impact, but however since then it seems to have been somewhat forgotten, and new themers have missed it altogether.

Yes I was aware you used it, may I suggest you change your thread name to [VRT] rather than just putting VRT in the general name?

This post was more to let other people know, as far as I can see you are the only person to use this system on their s3 themes.

I first realised this existed when I came to the SGS3. This is something that had been missing from the HTC desire world. I don't think anyone there knows about this.

IMHO this is a game changer! Great stuff.

If/when I theme, I will definitely use this.

morphed theme packages are really great and time saving, hoping for the themers to adapt it soon via this template

The VillanTheme system is pretty neat. Always liked metamorph and this is similar but at the flashable level.

Does the VillanTheme system back up original assets? The reason I ask is if a user flashes a villantheme that applies changes to 10 image assets. The user then flashes another villantheme that only applies changes to 5 of the 10 images that were just changed. Is the user then faced with a mix of two themes as the second theme didn't touch the other assets from the first theme?

Thanks.
