Since the new theme chooser was released, I am wondering how to create themes for theme chooser, I'm pretty sure it has something to do with Eclipse and I have that installed aswell as android SDK and apktool but where to go from here, I'm not looking for making a flashable theme...

When you do theming, you do not need eclipse anymore.

You need:

-XML Editing (Notepad++)
-PNG Editing (from scratch use Photoshop / from editing use GIMP)
-Compiling tools (apktool.jar)

so do I still edit the SystemUI and framework-res or do I edit themechooser.apk? And how would I get it to a format the theme chooser would read, obviously it needs to be an apk to install it?

No. You will just have to make an apk. A templatebread can be found in nhnt11's thread... See that thread, its very useful...

I might be mistaken, but I believe you (or someone else) said the holo series of themes should be used as the template???
