I've been reading and reading and all I can get is that you need a custom rom to change themes (haven't found a newer one yet I trust). Is it that hard to theme a stock rom without using an app from the market? I can't for the life of me find a detailed walkthrough. I understand the odex and deodex. It seems to me when I did my Evo 4G it seemed much easier.
A familiar username, a familiar question...

The morphology thread is where to start...it just so happens that morphology supports three major and reliable TW (stock looking) roms (FreeGs3, The People's Rom, and Franken Rom)...from there, flash both mods in the OP. Morphology has the OMG themes built in there if that is what you want.

How can I theme the stock apps icons? (Like Messaging, Phone, contacts, media player, etc.) On a deodexed ROM.
Not the actual app, just the Icon on the homescreen/app drawer.

Note: I mean actually changing the icon. Not using an app from the play store. Going in and making it the default icon

So, could anyone give me a kick start? Im looking to create stock themes for some different touchwiz roms. I have a general idea of what to do. But i do not have a flashable zip i could use. In other terms, how could i get a theme to flash on whomevers S3? (currently wanting to fully theme Naddicts peoples rom to full stock and not burden him with asking him to make a full stock theme. He already did some theming for me and those who wanted)..

Anyways, back on the evo 4g, years ago, i made a theme, used a zip provided by i think gruesome wolf. All i did was basically collect icons and what not and drag them into the zip and when i flashed the zip, the icons on the rom previously would be the ones i placed. Im looking to theme the rom im currently on to 100% or 99% stock (The Peoples ROM 3.0.8)

When you connect to wifi, a message box pops up saying "connected to blah.blah Wireless", where can I find the text color for this? It is the last little bit of blue I can get rid of.

Unhappy A few changes I just cant find, please help!

I need some help guys..
After theming almost 99% of all the Samsung system apks, I am stuck.
I am trying to change all blue images/ text, well eveything that is blue to green for all apks, these are the 3 that are driving me crazy and I just cant seem to find.
1. Is in the ClockPackage.apk



I cant find the xml that controls the blue color of the selected text above.

2. Next is when you crop a picture, I have looked all through SecGallery2.apk and SamsungCamera.apk

I cant find the xml to change the bars of the crop square...

3. Is the SamsungCamera.apk, I have gone through every file located in res, and cant find how to make the text in the menus green.



Looked through all files, to get rid of blue text, can't find what controls it. Please help!

I have looked and looked, I must be missing something...
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

This has been driving me crazy, I got all the dialer icons recolored to cyan, except for the back button in portrait mode. I went through each subfolder in secphone and seccontacts and can't figure out why it won't work. The file must not be in those folders, any ideas?



nevermind, I found it. It was call_clear_btn.png in \SecContacts.apk\res\drawable-sw359dp-xhdpi
