Does the VillanTheme system back up original assets?.

It doesn't yet, but I mentioned adding this ability to the Villain Tools App to the dev and he mentioned he has seen it in scripts so there is hope.

Full information can be found here:

Basically this is a theme system where you make your theme following the above guidelines and 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.

Heck ya. Great concept. I'll by trying this out for sure. I can't stand updating on EVERY ROM BUILD.

I've been looking for a resolution for a while now and I am still no nearer to sorting out my problem with VRT

I'm using VillianROM 1.1.0 LFB and CWM Touch I do exactly this:

Copy zip from PC to phone storage (not external SD card)

Reboot into Recovery.

Clear Cache partition

Clear Dalvik cache

Flash zip from internal SD

Everything is reported as being successful.

Reboot... nothing changes. This is with Vertumus VRT Jelly Bean Domination (which others report as working fine).

The strange thing is, I already have JB Domination flashed on this exact ROM, yet when I tried a clean install (cleared System, data, cache adn preload, etc, in CWM) and installed VillainROM from CWM, booted, set up, rebooted to recovery and flashed JB Domination, it doesn't work.

So, I have a Nandroid backup where it has worked, but now doing a fresh install it doesn't work. And also, on my Nandroid backup (which I use now daily) it doesn't work at all.

No VRT theme will flash to my phone


I've also tried mounting /system and /data before flashing.
