Not sure,.. but i think theme systems can cause more problems than goods.
At least happening with Atrix etc.

I personally wouldn't bother with themes.

Better to concentrate on stability updated and performance.

What kind of button , red, blue,.. this and that,... what wallpaper,.. blue, tree, this and that,.. who cares about that?

Yea, last time I used a theme was when I used CM7 on my phone months ago, and that was cause ICS wasn't stable on my device yet but I liked the look of it.
That was the only time I bothered with themes.

But w/ mods like the AOKP settings, I use those all the time since they're there. I like having the 5 button nav bar and being able to longpress for even more shortcuts. Right now I have technically seven buttons on my nav bar on my phone

Yeah. Or the theme system is well done, or the rom may get slower.
I guess I'm going back to the first idea.
Adding your own icons like battery, wifi, etc and choose them in megatron parts.

I don't know if that's a request, but i'll add it anyway

A LOT of people care about that. I for one am looking forward to a functioning theme engine. I used to use it all the time when I was running CM7 on my nook color. It's one of the things I miss the most in CM9.

I am making a theme system, it is working but i can only change images for now (except app icons). I think colors are the only thing missing in my theme system. But as I said before, the rom may get slower (the performance looks the same here), so I ask you, what are the things that you would like to customize? So I can make each of that things individually customizable (so you can mix different "themes" without making a new one)

It's going to be like choosing the battery icon, but with more choices. So it doesn't affect performance, unless the theme system is global, then there may exist a minor performance decrease in opening apps(although I'm not noticing any right now). That's why I asked what thing users want to be customizable.

I personally like the overall system theme to match the buttons and icons. For instance if I had red nav buttons, I like the settings menu and the notification area to have red highlights.

I certainly isn't a deal breaker. The ROM rocks without it .

Just don't use the options if you're afraid you're gonna take a performance hit. Having the option there isn't going to mess with anything until you use it.
