Hello guys ,in this tutorial I'm going to show you main steps to make a CM11 Theme , compatible with the newest theme engine .
I'll provide as much help as I can , stating here that I'm a themer for only two week , I started theming with @EnricoD who really helped me and guided me through this way .
So let's start off
* There's a template available to download on GitHub , made by elelinux .But @EnricoD made it simpler , thank him , also support elelinux by getting his theme Great Freedom on the Play Store
It is pretty stable , and good enough to make a complete theme .
*Download Android Studio , which is going to be used to compile the Great Freedom project , and make it available as .apk format to install on your ROM.
*Android Studio won't work without the JAVA JDK , which you can download in the link below :
*You MUST have a ROM which includes the newest CM Theme Manager (T-Mobile Theme Manager) firstly introduced in the CM11S .
*PC, with a decent internet speed , believe me we had enough difficulties with enricocid downloading that android studio on a slow internet :/ .
*Time and Patience .Patience because you're going to test the theme you made many times .
You can ask questions , I know how it feels to be a beginner , so don't worry I , @EnricoD , and other users here will do their best to help you
