I'm starting with a red theme today.

I hope it'll be out for a weekend



Color are better and more red - I shoot some pictures with Z1 (no time for screenshots )

For now, we have only few themes (on market) and it's time that we buil/MOD our own...

What do mean by that "the theme breaks "
As we said many time before - you can't use custom themes on stock ROMs.

You can use them on stock based ROMs like iHackers, monx, JellySlim, RomAur...
And can on Sony stock ROM or [NUT] ROM (that's basically plain, stock ROM only root added or deodexed)

You have a wonderful tut bro. I do have a few question?

1. You made mention that we extract the zip from asset then once done recompile it? You mean recompile it like normal recompiled apk?

2. I had tried changing the background of settinga and it work, the only problem is the text. Where do i need to change the code for the text?

Thank you in advance bro.

IT DOESN'T HURT TO PRESS THANKS BUTTON FOR ANY APPRECIATION, IT GIVES US MOTIVATION TO DO MORE.

Yeap...just write
apktool d android.zip for decompile
And
apktool b android.zip.out to recompile

You have text settings in style.xml - if you are using dark background you have to set text color to white, of course.

I tried to extract the zip file but once extracted I can't read the code. Im using Note++ to write the code. What am I missing?

I just said that, you must decompile zip file.

You can't extract files from zip, zip and apk are both compression files..
