Hi guys I made a skin for my HTC EVO shift today using a chromebook, some old skins, some pngs from a cm7 theme and some sorta zipsigner for Android. The bug at hand is the indicator on the homescreen over the dock is recognizing the dock as an arc and not a flat dock, so its curving down into my dock png when I scroll over.

You'll probably have to change the indicator pngs, I remember seeing a couple skins with a flat indicator... I just searched Sense 2.3 skins when I had the device

Well uh i have another problem, I don't know how to change the name of the skin. Do you know how to do this? I looked on a few forums and apparently there's a folder in /res/ called values and I have to edit the strings.xml and in all my skins there's no values folder at all.

Sorry it's been to long. I joined the dark side and have been on Samsung for awhile.

The only way to see the Values folders is by decompiling the apk with apktool.
